In Memory

Dennis Klepper

Carol Quisno Pearce reports, “I received a note in the mail from Catherine Vandiver Klepper, Class of ‘64, saying that her husband, classmate ‘Dennis Klepper died on May 15 after a 13-month struggle with throat cancer that started in the larynx and spread through the throat and mouth. Many years of smoking can do awful things.’" Awful, indeed, Catherine. Dennis’ Woodward activities included Science Club, 3, and Spanish Club, 2. Read Dennis’ death notice in the Cincinnati Enquirer, where you’ll also see one way you can help to discourage smoking among young people.
