Note: Richard Enabnit did go to school with our class, but I don't believe he graduated. My memory is dim, but, I think Richard dropped out in the 8th grade. I see no problem with posting his obit with the 1957 folks. I'm sure no one would object and I would like to have it there. I know he was in school with us until at least 7th grade because that is the year he hit me with a spitball in English class and when I wouldn't pick it up Mrs Thompson kicked me out of class for the remainder of the term.
