As I remember John Chaput he was.....wait.... I can tell you only a few stories because this is public and I respect John and the memories . I went to St. Raymond's with John. A great athlete, he was left handed and I was right. Our 5th grade teacher was Sister Joan Mary. You will remember her as the principle of St. Raymond's when my two children went to the school in the late 70's. While John and I were attending grammar school at St. Ray's, the town of Menlo Park had a tradition at Halloween time of students painting scenes on merchant's windows
downtown. It was a great time then. Well John and I were asked by the school to enter a painting. Now the tradition was to paint on the glass(window). But at this time in history, Menlo Park changed from painting on the windows in favor of painting on butcher paper and attaching the works to the windows. In order to make a short story longer, John and I started our painting on the floor of the 5th grade classroom . It was a great collaboration between us (he left handed, me right handed). Well we won a prize for our work.
John , I will miss you.
