Ok so as many of you know my dad, Doug Utterberg passed away Saturday, July 16th.
He went in to the ER for shortness of breath on Tuesday, July 6th and they di...scovered the aortic valve to his heart was too narrow and not functioning properly. He began to develop fevers (to which the doctors could not find an answer for) and his kidneys were not in good working condition. Over the next week and a half he developed a blood clot in his leg and other organs started to fail as well (could have been the shock his body experienced from the tube in his throat and having to lay in a bed sedated and on pain meds or because of the fact that his body was working so hard to beat the fever). Saturday morning his blood pressure was very low and the doctors tried everything they could to bring it up but nothing worked. So I got the call to come to the hospital and start preparing for the worst. His blood pressure continued to be low and his heart was working so hard to try and pump blood throughout his body but eventually he lost the fight and passed on at about 8pm. He was surrounded by family and close friends and we were able to say our goodbyes. My brother, Nick Utterberg lives in Idaho and was unable to be present but we were able to do live video so he could say goodbye to our dad.
He left this world peacefully and I am confident he is happy and in a good place. This time has been so difficult for my brother and I and we are forever grateful for the love and support everyone has given us. It's amazing to see all the people in my dads life that loved him so much and are willing to do anything to help. I can't say thank you enough to everyone.
Okay enough with the sad stuff. Moving on to the happy. My dads wishes were to be cremated and to be buried at Fort Snelling National Cemetery in Minnesota with his dad, his brother, and eventually where my grandma will be buried. There will be a Veteran's service in Minnesota at a future time whenever my grandma goes back there. I know my dad would not want to memorialize his death here in California but to celebrate his life. And that's what we're going to do.
So whoever would like to attend! We will be holding a celebration at ET's where he worked for a time as a bouncer. This will take place this Thursday, July 21st at 6pm til whenever. Come have a drink with my dad and share funny stories you have of him. If the bar scene isn't your thing or are unable to make it, then we will be having an open house / celebration of life at my dads house on Saturday, July 23rd. This will take place all day long so people will be able to visit whenever they have time. If you'd like to bring your favorite beer / booze or a dish to share that'd be nice. If you have any further questions you can let my brother or I know. We look forward to celebrating my dad with all of you. Thank you again! Our family and friends are truly the best!

Sad news to report. Terry Andrada was murdered in San Diego this past Friday. From what I understand, Terry took in a young gal he knew who was afraid of an abusive boyfriend. The boyfriend went to Terry's home, shot Terry, the young gal and turned the gun on himself. I'm not sure how many of you will remember Terry - he went to Cedar Crest, Portland and maybe a little while at JFK - then when his family moved he went to Jefferson. He took me to JFK dances even after moving. A really sweet, funny guy - he will be missed. 

Does anyone else remember Mrs. Andrada yelling "Ruthie, Lisa, Terry Ben" at dinnertime?!

Such a horriable thing!!! I will keep his family in my thoughts as they deal with such a tragic end.

It is sad to hear that people we graduated with have past on.  Loosing anyone especially childhood classmates can be difficult.  For me this year has been difficult loosing 3 family members mom, husband's brother and sister.  Good news also though one of my daughter's just got married and is expecting. If anyone is in the Duluth area she is on channel 6 news. My other daughter just turn 34 so I'm feeling my age now.

All my prayers are with those who have lost family members. Glad to be on this discussion board.

I agree with you Tom, it is sad to see our class diminish. I pray those that have passed lived life well and that we will recognize that life is short. Let's make the best of it by forgiving offenses, doing good to others, finding ways to be a blessing, and being thankful.

Carol L Rickard (Schultz)

Sue- congratulations! You must be very pleased with your children finding their way in life. Good job and well done!!

Susan M. Kusz (Evans)

I agree with you Carol it is part of the reason I mentioned the fact that we have lost quite a few of our Class of 78.  The world is not the same as when we were in school but one thing remains the same the lack of peace especially in our own country.  We should all work toward getting along with others and not holding grudges life is too short.

Take care class of 78! I am looking forward to coming to the upcoming class reunion.

I have not heard details on Sally yet either .  Going to reach out to Cathy Clark, who has been pretty fairly close to her still, living  in the area .  I found out from Sharon   Jensen last week . No one seems to have details that I know. It's quite sad, Sally was a great person , she will be missed .<3
