It breaks my heart to see that Brent Priest has passed away.  He was instrumental in helping to coach me in archery (the only sport I excelled in) during our senior year.  He was a dear & sweet friend.  I believe he served in the Marines, then raised his disabled daughter alone after the child's mother abandoned them both shortly after the child was born.  Does anyone know what became of his daughter?  She was 4 years old at our 10 year reunion in 1984, so she'd be 32 if she's still alive.  Brent, I'll miss you forever and cherish your friendship always.

He had some problems, I know about he was my friend, Last time I saw him was 1978, he was working in the Car Wash just off Whittier Blvd and Telegraph RD.  I looked up to see him drying off the windshield of the car, I was sitting in. He smiled. He had not lost his smile and charm. He love Oldies but Goodies Music. Favorite song he sang was the Wanderer.
