To the editor:
It was great to read Marianne Van Osch’s article on Art Dumaresq in the Jan 25 publication, headlined Dumaresq looks back on years as a CRD director.
Reading it was like strolling down memory lane. I went to school with Art back in the ’60s in Mission and played with him in a band called the Hyhats, which is mentioned in the article.
We lost touch after I moved away to Vancouver to start a career in the banking business and he continued on with his musical and accounting pursuits. I knew his wife, Judy, when she was just a teeny bopper in school and was already going steady with Art.
It is wonderful how articles, such as this one, can reach to so many people touched in some way by a friend of days gone by.
Keep up the good work.
