In Memory Of

The HPHS Class of 1969  recognizes those from our class who have passed away during the intervening 50 years. These classmates were more than a name on a list - they had family, friends, and memories to be shared.

We will be providing a profile of their lives on this site at a later date. If you would like to write a brief tribute to one of these classmates that we can post here, please let us know.

George Andrew Heldrich

Tribute by Patricia Owens

George Heldrich was my best friend.  He was like an older brother to me.  He was greatly misunderstood in school.  He was an exception, he was beautiful and had a gentle soul.  George always wanted to protect me from the evils of the world. He tried hard at it. We kept in touch over the years.  He built his own home in Boulder, Colorado up in the mountains.  It was a lovely, peaceful place.  George loved his dogs and playing guitar.  He eventually went on to get a Master of Education Degree at the University of Colorado.  He taught Social Studies in High School.  As he told me, he always hated that class because it was so boring. He wanted to make it interesting for his students. Later in life, he enjoyed fly fishing and finally met a woman he wanted for his wife.  I have not been in contact with him for some years now, but I felt that he was gone.  Now I know he is gone.  One of the last times I saw him, he got out his guitar and sang "Fire and Rain" to me.  Everytime he sang this verse:

"Oh, I've seen fire and I've seen rain. I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end.
I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend,
but I always thought that I'd see you baby, one more time again."

He would look up at me and smile.   George, my dear friend, I know I will see you again some day.  Rest in the peace you sought all your life.
