Comments About Classmates

Vicki Trimble

April 17, 2016

It's hard to explain away a life of a friend I loved, it seems I just don't know where to stop or where to begin:

I will miss Vicki very much. Vicki and I were friends since we were 5 years old. I lived on Robbins Dr. and she lived half way up Hunter Hill. Man those were the days. Everyone in the east end would sled down that hill day and into the late evening, whenever we got a big snow, The police blocked the entire hill off from Clarendon to Everett Ave.
She loved reminiscing about our school years Jr. high through Sr. high school and she had many fond memories of her class mates. We had many laughs at the mischief we used to get into during those days which you could never get by with in this day and age. Things were so safe back then. She had quite a memory and I always relied on her memory when I wanted to remember something or someone. I'll really miss that. She became very private in her later years except for Bev (Martin) whom she cared for and me.
Love you Vicki

Sandy was my pal for most of my life.We lived next door to Sandy and her family on S Williams St in Newark, Ohio.
Sadly, Sandy has been in not the best of health for most of the later years in her life. I guess the lung disease and pulminary problems finally got the best of her.
When life interviened and we hadn't seen each other for over 30 years when I called her to get reaquainted she told me that she had turned into her Mother, but I loved her just the same

I am Zeke Ogilbee's daughter and I just wanted to say how great it is that you have this site. I took care of my dad through his illness and I am still going through his belongings. He was very proud to be a NHS graduate and he had very fond memories of his friends and plenty of stories he had told me over the years. I feel compelled to say as I sort through his belongings I have come across the reunion pictures (he attended all he was well enough to attend )and I even have found some signed senior pictures and some corresponding letters. All I can say is you must of had one special class. I know I had one special dad. Thanks again for the info on the site. Yours, Ann Boyd

Mr. Wiley,

My name is Chanda Coomer, I am Bill's daughter. I was Googling dad one day last week and i saw on the NHS website that someone had added him. I spoke with Bonnie and she said that you did. I understand that you knew dad for over fifty years so I don't have to tell you what a great man he was. I was and will continue to be blessed to have him for as long as i did. I am attaching a couple of articles and Pics with this email of dad just to share with you. I love everybody knowing what a special man he was. I hope this finds you well.

Respectfully,

Chanda

Friends, family honor lawman Smith

Robert S. Deafenbaugh
October 11, 1920 - February 4, 2014

NEWARK: A funeral service celebrating the life of Robert S. Deafenbaugh, age 93, of Newark, will be held at 1 p.m. on Friday, February 7, at First Baptist Church Heath, 525 South 30th Street, Heath, with Pastor Noel Dear officiating.

Mr. Deafenbaugh passed away Tuesday, February 4, 2014 in Pleasantville, Ohio at Heartland of Fairfield. He was born October 11, 1920 in Bellaire, Ohio to the late George E. and Grace (Jones) Deafenbaugh.

Mr. Deafenbaugh served this community all his life fighting to protect our freedom in active duty with the United States Air Corps in WWII, as well as active duty in the Korean War for the US Air Force. He returned from active duty to continue his service in the Air Force Reserves retiring with the rank of Major.

He continued his tireless service to others in the Newark School System as an Industrial Arts teacher. There he earned many awards for excellence including outstanding Industrial Arts Educator. He progressed to the post of supervisor of Vocational and Industrial Education Departments for Newark Public Schools. His years of service spanned more than three decades.

Though Bob had many accomplishments throughout his years, his most treasured and shining epitaph is his love for life, tenacity to try and experience new things and his "can do" attitude which was never more apparent than when at the age of 84 he decided to start his life over, marry Joy and had a son, Morgan. His life was richly blessed.

He is survived by his wife, Joy; two sons, Robert J. (Nancy) Deafenbaugh of Sidney, Ohio and Morgan Deafenbaugh of the home; a daughter, Georgette (Peter) Binnington of Georgia; and five grandchildren, Michelle, Dylan, Daniel, Mary Beth and Anne.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a brother, Edward Deafenbaugh who was killed in WWII combat; and two loving wives, Mary Pichard and Geraldine King Deafenbaugh.

Memorial contributions may be made to Heartland Hospice - 6500 Busch Blvd. Suite 210, Cols. OH 43229.

Friends may call from 5-8 p.m. on Thursday, February 6, at The Newark Chapel of Henderson-Van Atta-Stickle Funeral & Cremation Service, 59 North Fifth Street, Newark where the Licking County Veterans Alliance will provide military honors. Burial will take place in Greenwood Cemetery, Wheeling, West Virginia.

Please visit www.hendersonvanatta.com to view a memorial and to leave a message of condolence for the Deafenbaugh family.


James Rollin "Jimmy Wildcat" Allen

James Rollin "Jimmy Wildcat" Allen
December 14, 1925 - August 13, 2015

NORWICH: A funeral service for James Rollin "Jimmy Wildcat" Allen of Norwich, OH will be held on Tuesday, August 18, 2015 at 11 a.m. at Farus Funeral Home. Burial will follow at Bethel United Methodist Church.

Jim passed away on August 13, 2015 at the age of 89. He was born in Norwich, Ohio on December 14, 1925 to Rollin A. and Katherine F. Allen.

He graduated from New Concord High School where he excelled in football, basketball, baseball and track. He then attended Muskingum College and played as a half back- quarterback under Coach Ed Sherman. Jim left college before graduation to honorably serve in the United States Navy during WWII and was stationed in the South Pacific. He resumed college after he was discharged and graduated with a Bachelor's of Education.

Jim began his teaching and coaching career at Dennison High School in 1948. In 1952 he found his home at Newark High School teaching History, Physical Education and coaching football and basketball. In 1962 he became the Athletic Director and remained in that position until his retirement in 1982. His contributions were celebrated with a "Jim Allen Day" in Newark and Licking County and the Newark High School gymnasium was renamed the "Jim Allen Gymnasium" in his honor.

Sports were not Jim's first love, however. As soon as he returned from his service in WWII Jim married his childhood friend and high school sweetheart, Doris Finley. They raised two children with a passion for service, education and sports. They would have been celebrating their 70th wedding anniversary on August 29, 2015.

Jim served as a Master Mason at the Malta Masonic Lodge, was a member of the Aladdin Temple Shrine Club, the Laura Chapter of the Eastern Star and Sons of the American Revolution. Jim enjoyed living at the family's 1882 farm where he was content to manicure their park-like setting and hunt. He spent many vacations visiting historical sites and researching genealogy.

Jim was preceded in death by his parents, his brother Phil F. Allen; his sister Betty A. Van Reeth; and his children Katherine A. "Kathy" Gerber and James P. "Phil" Allen.

Jim is survived by his loving wife Doris; his daughter-in-law, Pam Allen; grandson, Ryan (Jennifer) Gerber and his children Harland and Hadleigh; granddaughter, Natalee (Rick) Johnson and her son Caleb; grandson, Rory Gerber and his son Keegan; granddaughter, Sarah (Derek) Allen-Hageman and her children Ian and Sophia; sister-in-law, Anita Allen; sister-in-law, Bernie Litt; brother-in-law, Al (Susan) Finley; and many nieces and nephews.

Memorial Contributions may be made to the of Central Ohio, 1379 Dublin Rd, Columbus, OH 43215, Genesis Hospice, 713 Forest Ave, Zanesville, OH 43701, or the Newark Boosters, 621 Mount Vernon Road, Newark, OH 43055

Friends and family may attend calling hours on Monday August 17th, 2015 at the Farus Funeral Home, 63 W Main St., New Concord, OH, 43762 from 2-4 p.m. and 6-8 p.m., with a Masonic Funeral Service at 5:30 p.m., and on Tuesday August 18th, 2015 from 10-11 a.m. Services will begin promptly at 11AM, and burial will be held at the Bethel United Methodist Church Cemetery.
