Since we just had our reunion, this comes as a shocking contrast to the fond retrospectives we shared.  Since many of your are outside the area, this may be the only means of learning of this tragedy.

Over the years I have tried to contact Doug by various means.  Because of his profile, he is relatively well "protected", which is as it should be.  If I find, or anyone else knows of or finds a means to contact him, please let us know.

WASHINGTON — Eric Wright, the 22-year-old son of KSL Newsradio host Doug Wright, died this weekend in Washington, D.C., in an apparent fall.

Police found Wright's body in the rear alley of the 3700 block of Georgia Avenue, NW, shortly before 2 a.m. on Saturday, according to a news release.

According to Kirk Jowers, director of the Hinckley Institute of Politics at the University of Utah, Eric Wright started an internship for U.S. Rep. Rob Bishop just last Monday. He previously worked as a congressional page in high school.

Jowers said the roof of the Park Place Apartments, the building next to the alley and where all Hinckley Institute interns reside, is a popular gathering place with grassy areas to grill out and socialize.

Wright was a senior at the U., majoring in history teaching with a minor in political science. Jowers said he had a "dynamic personality."

"He reminded me of his father in some ways," Jowers said. "He was very interested and engaged in current events. He always had a huge smile... There isn't a better kid than Eric."

Jowers didn't know Wright's future plans but knew he was interested in public service. His brother, Ian, is also doing an internship in Washington, for the Republican Governors Association.

Until this moment, I did not know that Doug Wright was part of our class! And I worked with him at KSL! During a couple of times, when I returned to Salt Lake from SoCal, I was hired by Lourdes Cooke, the Human Resources VP at KSL, to be a receptionist/security guard at the main front desk of the station, or to rotate through the front desks of the various depts., such as TV, radio, and Video West. I also led tours.

The various employees would often check in with me, especially if they had key card problems. I also distributed to them their "trades" (discount products and services offered by sponsors). In these situations I would talk to Doug and neither of us seemed to be aware of having been in the same graduating class! I guess our class truly was THAT large!

My condolences go out to Doug and his family. This is a devasting and senseless tragedy. I hope they will get through it., somehow.

I was shocked and sickened by the news about Eric Wright. I have never gotten to know Doug well, but over the years I have had several chance meetings with he and his wife Dee, and called into his radio show several times.

Doug actually attended Granite High for most of his high school years. He mentioned to me once how he came to take a few classes at Skyline his senior year, but I've forgotten the details. Just the same, we should all share in his horrific loss as he and his family struggle to go on with life.

I want to thank everyone who organized the reunion.  You did an excellent job. Everything was great.  It was so nice to see so many people that I haven't seen in 40 years.  I hope to see even more people at the next reunion.  I wish the best of success to everyone. If you are ever in southeast Arizona come see us at our hotel.  Keep having fun.

Thanks to all who posted their photos! It has really been enjoyable for me to look at them all. These are a treasure. Thanks again to Ann, Robert, and everyone else who has made this website what it is. I look at it most every day: it is one of my favorites websites!

 Bob Ence and I had an email exchange that I would like to open up to this forum.  It concerns one of our class mates, Bruce Gilbert.  

BRUCE GILBERT: I had Mage's debate class with Bruce, but we didn't get to know each other well until late in the 70's, when I bumped into him in the little town of Gardiner, MT. He was hiking around Yellowstone Nat'l Park and needed a place to stay for the winter.  I had an extra room, so he and his traveling companion, Adie, moved in. 

Bruce had an accident in high school that had caused spinal injury. He told me about his pain--excruciating.  I lost track of him when he moved out in the spring.  

As we prepared for the reunion, I wondered if he was still around.  Didn't see him log in to this site, nor on the "In Memory" pages, but the night of the reunion his class picture was shown as one of those who had died.  I inquired with Bob about getting his picture and a tribute put into the "In Memory' pages, but Ence said we needed confirmation of his passing.

Anybody out there know if Bruce Gilbert is still around?

 That was a wonderful reunion! Sincere thanks to all who worked before and behind the scene to bring such a warm, inclusive, thoughtful and fun agenda to life. The class of '70 is a beautiful bunch of grown-ups who still know how to have a good time. Yay!

I heard that a 1-year reunion Summer Party might be in the planning.  Is this true Mr. Sid?

Because I left Facebook several months ago (I got tired of Facebook's privacy issues), it has not been as easy to stay in touch with you all. You all remain in my thoughts, though, and I am hoping to get to Salt Lake this summer (maybe even about the same time as the picnic) for a visit. I hope I get to see many of you. Wishing you the best! -Darwin

I am very grateful for the opportunity to come and attend the summer picnics. I have enjoyed myself each time and really like discussing things with my old friends and acquaintances. A big thanks to those of you who continue to come!

Sorry I didn't make it to the last picnic in May (2014)!

Anyone wanting to "catch up" can email me at or send me a message using this site. I used to belong to Facebook, but got fed up with its privacy shenanigans (whenever a new feature or application was added, the site would change privacy settings back to the default settings, which were not for privacy). I think Facebook is a marketing data mining program, masquerading as a social networking program. Who needs that?

Dear Fellow Eagles    A bad storm Saturday flooded part of our basement.  We having been pulling out wet boxes and sorting. In one box was  my yearbooks which I haven't seen for many years. It has been an afternon of nostalgia. 45 years ago on graduation night Cindy Goff and I went out to the airport parked and watched planes come and go. We talked about where life would take us.  Life has been hard especially for Cindy who passed away a few years ago, of cancer. I think of her every day.  My husband and I are serving a full time mission at home in  Riverton. I am amazed every meeting  at the young Elders and Sisters. Their energy ,courage,desire and love of God.I sat there today thinking was I  ever like that. The District Leader reminds me of a young man 45 years ago in a Honors Seminary Class.Robert Ence.I regret I did not enjoy high school more. have more fun,make more friends .Do you ever wish to go back just one day? I always wish I could have the brain I have now but the body I had then.But then I would have to worry about getting pregant again.  It has taken 63 years for me to finally enjoy life. Please feel free to share. Marilyn Swofford Garside

I just want everybody to know that I am living in Salt Lake City, again. Also, I have joined up with Facebook, once more, after a long departure. Contact me on the Skyline site or contact me on Facebook. You may also email me at I look forward to connecting with you and will see you at the picnic.

I have been able to attend some of the Class Picnics held at the American Legion. The work that has gone into making them a pleasure for us all is something that really impresses me. Thanks to those of you who take part in the planning and execution. Attendance at the 2016 picnic seemed smaller, but equally enthusiastic. There are not many places that I can hear a live band, eat good food ( and still rub shoulders with old camarades) for only $20. This event is one that I treasure, not just because it is an entertainment value, but also because I love my schoolmates and genuinely feel blessed to interact with them. I hope to see you there next year!

Not sure how to get this to everyone, but I recently learned that Marcy Minson has passed on. Here's her obituary: Marci Dale Minson
1/29/1952 - 10/24/2016
Our beloved daughter and sister, Marci Dale, passed away on Monday, October 24, 2016 at age 64. Anyone who knew Marci knew what a unique blessing she was on this earth. Being a special needs child, she graduated from Skyline High School in the Special Ed Program, then later attended American Fork Training School where she learned skills to live on her own in a group home. Marci was able to contribute to society working at various jobs in her community.
Marci's favorite activities were watching Disney movies, eat - See more at:
