Jared Landaker, Class of 1999

From: carole ferraud

It is with great sadness that I report that one of our alumni, Jared Landaker, who graduated in the class of 1999 and was a 1998 First Team All-CIF Defensive Back in football, was killed in a helicopter crash in Iraq yesterday. Jared was an officer and helicopter pilot in the U.S. Marine Corps. His mother, Laura Landaker, was a former district employee

According a news report on MSN, the CH-46 Sea Knight, a Marine transport helicopter, crashed northwest of Baghdad yesterday and was the fifth helicopter downed in the last two weeks. Seven people were killed (two Navy and five Marines). There has been no confirmation if Jared was the pilot or passenger.

More than 800 people attended the funeral serviced of Jared at the Community Church on Saturday, February 17. Jared was honored by the Marines and the entire Bear Valley community as a hero. He will be missed.



Grace Bast passes away.

I received the following email from Trudy (Bast)
Hi Mr. and Mrs. Waner,

In case you hadn't heard, my mother, Grace Bast, passed away on Monday (February 12) at her home. She had fallen and had a heart attack so it all went very quickly. We are very thankful that it did and that she was home where she wanted to be. The AAUW is setting up a scholarship fund in her name for this June and we thought that was great. I thought about the alumni newsletter, and even though she wasn't alumni, alot of us knew her, and wondered if maybe an announcement could be made in it. Ron and I are keeping the house for the family so I will be up from time to time. Ellen Conklin is heading the AAUW fund, as she was a member and had taken mom to the meetings alot in the last few years. If you have any questions, please email me or you can call me at home. 909-626-1581.

Thanks for you help and thoughts.
Trudy
When I received an email from Trudy I wrote:
Dear Trudy,

We had not heard about your mothers passing. Yes, I will put a note in the Big Bear High alumni newsletter which will go out next week. Was there a funeral or any memorial services? You mom was Neal's teacher in kindergarten. She was highly respected by the students, staff and parents. She was a wonderful lady and our family has many good memories. Please tell the family we are praying for them.

Blessings. Al

It is nice to see a TV station returning to Big Bear High School. Around '72-'73 former BBHS instructor Gary Moran built one from the ground up, using his excellent negotiating skills to get the necessary production equipment donated from LA TV stations. Gary's vision, dedication, and talent---criminally underappreciated by his fellow faculty at the time---gave a number of us our successful start in the very competitive TV/Video Production business.

Directly, or indirectly, I owe just about everything good in my life to that gifted, dedicated teacher.

So hats off to Gary Moran, and all the very best to the revived BBHS Television!

Cheers,
Mark Cloud, '73
