Looking for anyone who knew Jim Rouse in 1988

I know this a total longshot, but I have been having good luck the past few days finding people he went to school with to scan yearbooks, and tell me about him. I am looking for a man (possibly men, not sure) who would have been a painter/general laborer painting buildings or houses back in 1988. My dad was James "Jim" Rouse and he was in town for work. He was 27 at the time of his death, 11/21/1988. He was originally from Florence, KY and was married to Faye, and had a daughter (me) that was 6. He had epilepsy and I was told he had seizures back to back that caused him to have a massive heart attack. It is unclear whether he was alone at the time, or if his coworker witnessed this. I was told he was found dead in a hotel room, but then was told he had back to back seizures and wouldn't come out of them, like someone was there to see it happen. Please, if by some miracle, you are that person that was with him, or maybe you are a child or relative who has heard this story before, please, please, contact me. This has haunted me for years, and I need to find out exactly what happened  (Jan 22, 2014 | post #1)

Looking for anyone from BCHS class of '80 that knew my fa...

Is anyone in here a graduate of the class of 1980 at BCHS, or even a couple years before that? I am looking for a yearbook so I can see a picture(s) of my father. There is a lady who located a picture of him from the 1980 yearbook, however, it has him listed as being a sophomore, which I know is incorrect. She told me it was a requirement back then to wear a suit for graduation pics (which he did not), and that could be why he was listed in the wrong class. She said a lot of people were listed in the wrong year. I have a guy who has volunteered to look at the yearbooks from 77-79 as well. He should have attended 77-80 His name was James Rouse. He went by Jim or Jimmy. Was born in 1962, lived on Mt. Zion Rd, and dated my mother who was known as Faye Gregory back then. I am just looking for anyone who may have been friends with him that could share stories, or possibly even have actual pictures of him. I know someone has to know him. Even if you don't, but think you may have siblings or friends that do, please copy this post and share it for me. He was barely 27 when he passed away in 1988, and I was only 6.  (Jan 18, 2014 | post #1)
