Died 11/25/2006 in Tucson (from a motorcycle accident enroute to Mexico).  Served in Vietnam, U.S. Navy.  Richard and I met up again at one of the earlier Reunions (I believe it was a combined 63/64 Reunion in 1993). We had a long conversation in which we discussed our Vietnam experience, our similar careers in Law Enforcement and our love for motorcycles. He was working for the INS at that time in Albuquerque and said we would get together again some time later. We never did and I was saddended to hear of his untimely death. Richard, just remember "Harleys Rule!!!"

With all due respect to Guy Ferstl comment about Richard Sandoval.....I would like to make some corrections and add  more on Richards life . Richard's accident was near Sasabe, Az on Nov. 10, 2006 on his way with other motorcycle friends and family to Rocky Point, Sonora, Mx. He died on Nov. 25, 2006 at University Hospital in Tucson, Az.

 He was in the Navy Seabees from 1966 to 1969 serving two tours in Vietnam.

Worked for TG&E from 1969 to 1977 and then joined Border Patrol from 1977 to 1988, stationed in Yuma, Az.,  then transferred to Albuquerque, NM into Anti-Smuggling with INS. Retired from INS in 2002 and a year later starting working for Akal as a court security officer at the US Federal Buildng until his death.

Thank you Guy, for remembering Richard and caring to post a memorial for Richard.

I was in band with Richard and he was one of the nicest guys, fun to be around, and a real gentleman even then. He was absolutely liked by everyone who knew him and will be missed at our reunion!

I use to walk home from football practice with Richard. He was one of my first acquaintances at THS. I came from out of state and didn't know one person when I started school. I will always remember the kindness Richard showed me. Looking at my year books I can not help but comment on Richard's beautiful penmanship!
