Sad news... Rich Morrison wrote in Facebook today, "My BHS Class of 1973 classmate Richard Gerald "Jerry" Gillespie passed away in 2012. He was a quiet, mild mannered guy who I first met at the summer activities held at George Washington Elementary School in the cabin on the playground in about 5th or 6th grade. Jerry was a manager on the cross country and track & field teams. RIP Jerry!"

It was announced at a church in Burbank that my cousin goes to. Steve was class of 72 at BHS. He was a very sweet, quiet man. Like another brother to me. He was a great husband to Mary, a great dad to his daughter, Stephanie. A wonderful brother and a wonderful friend you could always count on. I know he will be okay, he is with my brother in heaven and all of our families and friends who have gone before him. My condolences to Mary, Stephanie, all his family and friends. He will be truly missed. RIP Steve. Love you!"
