You've read my later life posts. Call it more like "Stoopid, stooopider and stooooopidist." The more I think back, the more I have to really "Laugh Out Loud". As I have always said, "God watches over fools and drunks." All us fools just loved growing...(not really up) in Ecorse at thet particular time. We were so...so lucky and blessed. Good night, Hon.

My uncle died last week from Mesothelioma that he acquired while working at Great Lakes Steel. I wonder how many of us that worked there in the 50's and 60's are going to die of this exposure to asbestos and not even know it. Remember the asbestos gloves, jackets, pants and other asbestos in stuff we didn't even know about? This cancer can sit in your body for years before it gets bad.

Very sorry to hear about your uncle , OR. My spouse worked there for a couple of years & said you couldn't eat in the open @ ZUG island since the air would contaminate the food & cause cancer. Didn't know about the asbestos gloves, etc.

Sorry to hear about your uncle. I worked at the main plant and zig island. We didn't have lockers so we had to drive home covered with that nasty stuff.

Neither you or old 54 workrd that hard on "Zig Island". I'm not sure you can develop cancer in 6 months at GLS.I be more worried about getting a limb cut off by flying sheet metal

. Mr Basil, If you're not sure, why make this statement? And I assume you're a very hard worker.

Old Raider from Old Buckeye Spouse- Miss u guys & we were saddened by your loss..Brother was exposed to that at DTE but I believe did not take a settlement while Jo's husband did. What sort of settlement = your life? I think we are ALL exposed to so much s--t growing up in the Coast not all bad but certainly an unhealthy environment. Son went to Mt had No problems but as soon as he returned- wham problems! Downriver although a great place to raise a family, unfortunately has pollution everywhere. Again sorry for your loss

There were alot of Comerzans. Jack the eldest, then Jill who is married to Dave Marcott, Diane, then their were also twins but I don't remember their names. They live in 1st street near Southfield and their home backed up to the railroad tracks. Jill was one of my first sweethearts at the ice rink, good memories.
The twins were named Denise and Debbie.

Thanks "Otis 1969" for the health comment.. we are in pretty good shape for old folks- ha ha. Sister from the 1965 class has been fighting with health issues for years so having descent health is quite a treasure. Hope you have yours..Plus at least 2 friends from the good ole EHS passed: Kimmery & Sue. Many had passed at the last reunion..sad
Life is pretty darn short but the memories on this site are a lot of fun to think about...

Anyone have stories about the teachers? Mr Lenox was a fr...ing nut case but others were pretty darn good! Mr Ken Fuller, Mr John Ready, Mr Piper. And does anyone remember how clean the locker rooms were? Gosh Mrs ? Smurda was a drill sgt keeping that room clean in her little "cage" area where the towels & swimsuits were all folded per size/color. I know the guys may NOT have had to deal with suits but I enjoyed swimming with the ugly suits! Our PE teacher even made everyone take showers! Times have sure changed!
(excuse my spelling this site does not have spell check & it drives me crazy)..

Please jump to page 218. I did a little memory about some of the teachers who stood out in my mind. I was going to to another chapter, but got lazy or distracted. Hope you like it.
