Meeting back home in Kansas City, MO the last weekend of July 2014, a small, select group of seasoned gentlemen celebrate a significant milestone, their 65th year of life! They affectionately call themselves the KC Boys, although most have ventured away from the mid-west mecca. Alumni from Central High School Class of 67, they first re-grouped in KC for their 40th birthdays. At age 55, they met in “What Happens Here – Stays Here” Las Vegas. Lots of fun times remembered and many new memories created. Realizing that advancing years often challenge ones recall, a convenient spot was designed to house key moments in their history. Much has been collected for their opportune review at their website, www.thekcboys.com. The celebrants are Gary Kynard, a 41 year resident of Los Angeles, and president of his insurance consulting business, Endsure.com; Barron Delaney, 38 years between Northern and Southern California, as a financial service executive; Lifelong Kansas City resident, Harold White, continuing enjoyment of his warehouse shipping & and receiving manager position in the apparel industry; Lloyd Mathis, 2 years in Humble, TX, and is a former long haul trucker; William (Willie) Luke, 38 years in Houston, TX and is a Continental Airlines retiree after 33 years of service; Ed Fields of Fort Worth, TX having retired from the Air Force and postal service; Louis Jones of Kansas City with the FAA; Errol Riggins, the young 64 year old of the group, resides in Kansas City and is a Commerce Bank retiree; Lawrence A Jones, Jr., for many years in the mortuary business in KC; the late Charles Smith, retiree of Armco Steel.
