I met John when we rented a fully furnished house for $300.00/ month with him and 3 other graduates of 1970.  We lived like royalty in Altadena at 712 Calaveras Street.  I kept a photo of this place that John took, and I remember how we ran around the Pasadena area with Dan Truitte from Sound of Music.  We also used to run up to the mountains and shoot our guns acting like rednecks blowing up tin cans.  I watched John write music while hatching a melody on the piano. I read that John died in 1999 of a massive heart attack. The times I had with him and many others don't seem like 45 years ago.

How about that we start an A.C. Hall of Fame, to include very memorable students & faculty?

How about we tell everybody here what has become of us, after we left AC? Well, here goes: After I left A.C., it greatly bothered me that I had an unaccredited degree. I found out that Pepperdine University in Los Angeles would accept AC grads to it's graduate school. Richard Elfers led the way for me, & we both earned accredited M.A.'s in History. I got a job teaching U.S. History in a private school, here in New Jersey, but that school went belly-up due to financial problems, as they ran out of money.Now my Texan wife, Debby, is the breasdwinner in our family. She works as a proofreader for Merck-Medco Health Plans.   Healthcare is a great industry, because people are always getting sick, at one time or another!

About John Trechak: I remember John as an A.C. grad (Bricket Wood) who worked very hard to keep us A. C. grads close & in touch with one another! I miss him very much!

Your friend,

John Kerley (1966)

I remember John Trechak for editing his newsy Ambassador Report which I subscribed to for several years. A few years ago while searching thru the issues I discovered my name, John E. Kerley, Sr., listed in AR54, February 1994. An associate editor made some funny comments about my religion, Top of The Line, at the time. Most of his comments were accurate but some comments were not. That was something John Trechak would never do. John Trechak died September 2, 1999 as reported in Mary Jones' letter of October 7, 1999. I appreciate all his editorial work.
