Kenneth P. MacDonald, who gave the opening prayer at the 50th Reunion dinner, died in January of 2005.
His cousin, Catherine Kelley Noring, a 1953 graduate, informed this website of his death, which followed shortly after heart surgery.
Just before the 50th Reunion, eight of the class of 52 made a concerted effort to find 54 classmates whose addresses were not known. Ken was among them. When we caught up to him, he told us that he was a retired Methodist minister living in Cockeysville, Md. His wife had just died the year before.
He is the 88th classmate to be placed on the In Memoriam list.
Ken was the 262nd person to walk down the aisle for his diploma. After his name in the Yearbook, it reads: "A kindlier gentleman treads not the earth."
These are the activities he was involved in at high school:
