In Memory

John Rebuck

John Rebuck

Classmates, I received the below information from the class of 66. Unfortunately. The passing of time is starting to catch up with all of us.

I am very sad, to pass this info on to you...


Just this morning I received a message from Linda (Wiemann) Smith,

our classmate, Cyndee (Klise) Rebuck husband, John (Class of 1965)

passed this morning.  

He had been dealing with health issues for several years.  He had a brain bleed

the last week of Sept. & was rushed to Harborview.  He underwent 2 brain surgery's

and suffered  2 strokes and was still in the intensive care unit. 


More info to follow.

I remember John well.  He and Bob sang together and entertained us all.  I'm sorry to hear of his passing.  Condolences to everyone affected.

I didn't really know John but I very much enjoyed his duets with Bob Dixon, (my childhood friend since kindergarten).  I hope they are now having a reunion and singing some of those great folksongs from the 60's.  My sincere sympathy to John family.

I had sevreal classes with john and enjoyed our high school friendship.....I hadn't seen him since graduation, but a couple of years ago, we ran into each other in our eye doctor's waiting room....we got to talk only for a short while that time..But we were able to catch up a little anyway.  I"m glad I got to see him then and am so sad that he is gone now.

I  am so sorry to hear of John's passing. I can remember all the high school parties where he and Bob Dixon would bring out their guitars and get us all to sing folk songs. I can remember going out to some place in Seattle to watch them sing professionally. John was such a ferocious, talented athlete and off the field such a kind and caring guy. 

While John was working in the Kent School District, I would make contact with him to try to make contact with Bob Dixon when he was struggling with life's challenges before Bob died. A number of us were able to get together in 2009 to share memories and just enjoy each others' company again. I will try to attach a photo of our get-together. Those  there were Tom Tasa, Elden Alexander, Bob Dixon, John Rebuck, Randy Farrell, Jim and Joy Poff, my wife and myself.

Rest in peace dear John. My sincerest condolences to John's wife and family.

John was a dear friend of mine. He and Bob sang with their guitars so much. When I attended Central, they came over many times to sing there. John was a talented athlete and had the biggest heart. I was fortunate to meet his sweet wife a few times. My heart goes out to her and John's family. I liked Julee's comment, now they can sing in Heaven. There is always an upside. Thank you Bill Okubo for the great photo. Know you are loved, John.

I lost contact with John after high school. I wish I had done a better job of staying in touch with friends. John and Bob accompanied on their guitars when I sang "The Eensie Weensie Spider" for my high school choir final. What great memories. Rest In Peace John.

In watching the college cross state football rivalries yesterday and today (11/26), out of the deep recesses of my memory . . . a Junior/Senior Girls Football game in the mud at Liberty Park?? (the park by the basketball courts) pops up.  I know John was a coach for "my" team (seniors, I think).  I thought we played tag football, but remembering being covered in mud . . .it could have been tackle football.  Cannot remember who was the other coach . . .
​Hoping that some of the other "players" will chime in with their memories . . . I cannot even remember who won, but thinking it may have been the Senior girls.
