Sadly, another member of our New Paris High School Class of 1964 has passed away.  Fred Schrock was a multi-talented, highly-respected and well-liked person with wide-ranging skills from the classroom to the basketball court.  I am hopeful that classmates and friends will add their memories in the comments section.  Here is Fred's obituary from the Goshen News:

Fred was a GREAT human being and it seems so unfair that people like Ann and Fred have to go so soon. We never know who or when it will happen to next. I will always remember Fred as a classmate who could do it all and still remained so humble about all of his abilities in everything with scholastics and in sports. A great Man. Class of 64 – Phil
