Has anyone seen or heard from Roger Freeman?

The last contact I had with him was when he was living and working in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, but that's been at least 10 years ago.

How about Linda Bishop Varner, she was living in Lexington, OK?  She is not on the list of classmates.

Sad news about James Garner.  But we all know his real name, don't we?

I remember Bret Maverick coming to Jackson Grade School and talking to all of us out on the front patio area.  Little did I know that I'd be meeting the cousin he was staying with a few years later in Junior High!

Good guy and I'm proud to say he was from Norman!

During the 9th grade at Central, I used to walk Linda Bumgarner (John's daughter/Principal at West), home after school.  I met her Uncle a couple of times, and as instructed by Linda and her older sister (can't remember her name), never made a big deal about it, but I was in awe and really star struck.  He was one hell of a nice guy.

He didn't discriminate.  James Garner also visited St. Joeseph School, which no longer exists.  He gave us all Maverick playing cards.  I have shared that over the years with anyone who would listen.  He was a great actor with a tremendous sense of humor.

James Garner came to Washington grade school as well and visited with his former principal Helen Olander.   He was a class act.   I thought he went to Washington, but I could be mistaken.

So good to see friends from 55 years ago on here! 

Yes, Mike, James Garner attended Washington. That's why he hugged Miss Olander. 

Didn't finsh school at Norman High but got his GED in the military.  

I hadn't realized that he visited every school in Norman that week. It was such a treat for all of us kids.

What a guy.  

Rainy week here in Charlotte.

Hello all,

James Garner's grandparents lived on Garfield street and I mowed their lawn.  Hope everyone is doing OK.
