Ken Castrop 4/25/11: Deaths of Jack Burkhardt and Doug Lubbers


Two of our classmates and two of my very best friends died within the last eight days. 

Burkhardt (aka “The Bulk”) passed away last Sunday, April 17.  He had
open heart surgery in January and never fully recovered.  Jack was
residing in Nashville.  He will be remembered most recently as the guy
who brought Irish Vodka to the class of ’68 tailgates.

Lubbers died this morning at about 5 am, at the end of a 13 year fight
with lymphoma.  He was a resident of Allentown, PA, and died in the
Hospital at UPenn in Philly.

Lubbers, Jack Burkhardt, and Ken Castrop, all aero grads of the class of
‘68, taken last fall after a round of golf before the Michigan game. (See folder “Photos of the Photogenic” on this blog.)

 May they rest in peace.
