Dave Cox - Photo by LeRoy Hunt

LeRoy Hunt sent us this photograph of Br. Dave Cox. Unfortunately, the picture came through as a "thumb" picture and very small. I'll contact LeRoy to see if he can send this in a larger format.

Dave Cox was initiated into the Phi Delta Psi Fraternity's Beta Chapter in the Spring of 1962. In 2008, Dave and his wife Marcia are retired and live in Danville, California.
They share a 19 year old son, Jason. Dave spends some of his free time playing golf.

Nancy Gatch

Nancy Jane Gatch, 64, of Westlake Village, passed away on Monday, March 3, 2008.
She was born on Jan. 17, 1944, Detroit, Mich. She was a Westlake Village resident for 39 years. She received her Bachelor of Arts and two lifetime teaching credentials from California State University, Northridge.

Nancy loved life and lived it to the fullest. She was very active in her community, including being a member of the National Charity League and the Assistance League. Skiing, tennis and traveling as much as possible were pastimes she loved. Her passion and the greatest joy in her life, second only to family and friends, was teaching. The lives of the many students and educators touched by her in 40 years in the classroom will forever be changed for the better.

Nancy's spirit will live on in the hearts of all who loved her and were blessed to share in this special lady's too short time in our lives. She is survived by her husband, Philip E. Gatch; son Philip H. Gatch; son Garrett G. Gatch; daughter, Arianna N. Gatch; son Brandon B. Gatch; mother, Sadie Crouch; brother, Howard Crouch; and many nieces, nephews, cousins and other family.

A service will be held at 3:30 p.m. Thursday, March 13, at Calvary Community Church, 5495 Via Rocas, Westlake Village. A reception will follow at the church.
