Deceased Classmate of BHS Class of '66: Jarvy Copeland

Linda Schuster Mazur asked that I post this email from Jim McGillis and I added the photos...



Jarvy Copeland was an interesting kid. He was several years older than the rest of us. His father was an Air Force pilot or crew-member, who died either in World War II or sometime thereafter. For years, Jarvy wore his father's old leather bomber jacket with pride. Once, he personally told me about his father and the jacket that he wore. This was thirty years before ragged bomber jackets became hip and cool fashion items. Without knowing it, Jarvy was a fashion leader, way ahead of his time. I remember hearing about his death from friends or reading about in the old Burbank Review.

Best Regards,
Jim McGillis
