Posted: 10/6/2021

A bunch of quick-hitters here; please read as several are time-sensitive.

First, football. What a crazy game last week!! Was a great time once the heartrate come back down. Mike Poirier can’t use his season tix for the 10/9 game vs SMU. Contact him directly if interested.

Mike Poirier’s note (

Hi Steve,

Per discussion this weekend, I have two tickets available for this week’s game. Pls pass around and see if anyone is interested in the tickets.

Best, Mike

Thanks for all you do for the class.

For anyone who hadn’t heard, Honorary Classmate Stu Headley passed. Stu was a Pearl Harbor survivor and truly wonderful man.

Steve, wasn’t sure if this news reached you or not. Sad news that our honorary classmate, Stu, passed away last month at the age of 99. Here is a link:

He was well known and often seen around San Diego. Truly a great American.

My best,
Eric Moss
