Don Rinehart Update

Hi Dave :

Just a note from sunny Arizona!  

I had a chance to connect up with Coach Gary Hollingsworth in a few weeks ago at the appropriately named “Hollingsworth Relays” track meet at West High.  He is now 80 years old and still looks like he could beat anyone in a 400 meter race, plus he hasn’t aged a bit!

He is still active as an official at University of Iowa and West High cross country and track meets.  He was also recently inducted into the Iowa High School Track and Field Hall of Fame.  I was able to visit with his son Matt, also a West High graduate, and his grandchildren, who are attending the University of Colorado.

Coach “Holly” has been one of the most influential figures in my life and it was great to see him again.

Our daughter (31) and family have recently moved form Phoenix to Helena, Montana.  A little farther to see the grand kids, but beautiful part of the country.  Son Chris (34) is still in Phoenix and working on cars, RVs, and motorcycles.  Tami (Thompson ’74) and I are just getting older!

Nothing else new.  Hi to all and, of course, thanks again to you for keeping us all connected!
