In planning for the MCHS 60s Reunion, we want to find a way to remember the classmates who have passed away. The following post reminds us how important it is to do that.
Barry Anderson (MCHS 1964) has kindly given us permission for sharing of the following post, a tribute to Heinz Schlutz, which Barry originally posted at the Malcolm Campbell High website:
Hello MCHSers. I am a 1964 graduate. In 1979, Heinz Schlutz organized a reunion in Montreal for the 11A class. He sent cassette tapes to those grads, including me, who were unable to attend. At the reunion, Heinz played the tapes, which briefly summarized, generally with humour, the fifteen years since graduation. Heinz then set out with his dog to visit those of us unable to attend and share information on our classmates, carefully organized by location, career, number of children, etc. It was obviously a labour of love for Heinz, who passed away shortly thereafter.
I wanted to share this story with other MCHS graduates as a tribute to Heinz. Many of you will remember his mother, who was a Vice Principal at the school.
