East Bakersfield High School Class of 1971
Class of '71 Celebrated 50 Years!

 Updated: November 1, 2021

 Classmate Murphy Fox has Passed
We were just informed through Jenni Avila that classmate Murphy Fox has died. Jenni learned through Murphy's suster Dani that, like many others, Murphy was vaccinated against Covid but had faced health issues the past few years. In one week's time, the virus took hold and he died of Covid-related complications. Dani said "He was my one and only sibling, my big brother, my god-father and my friend. He was bigger than life and was respected and loved by all who knew him." Murphy was very active in high school working on the Kernal Newspaper and the Sierran year book.Murphy's full obituary is now on our In Memory page (see bottom right of this page).

The 50-Year Reunion and Luncheon Pictures Have Been Posted!
EBHS Class of 1971 held its 50-Year Reunion on September 17, 2021 in Bakersfield, The Reunion was held at Luigi's Warehouse on E. 19th and had an excellent turnout. The event was hosted by the Reunion Committee and had more than 70 guests. The two classmates who travelled the farthest were Abe Oliveras (Ohio) and Mark Wooley (Florida).  Pictures from the Reunion and Luncheon have been posted  - see the Pics Pages on the left side of this page. There are 3 pages of Reunion pics and one page of Luncheon pics (around 80 pics in all).

The Reunion Committee would like to express our thanks and appreciation to Wes Bradford for hosting a wonderful Meet & Greet Social at his home the night before the Reunion as well as providing the "Dueling Pianos" entertainment and music for the Reunion. His kind donation to our Class and all of our Classmates is appreciated and really made both events a lot of fun and quite memorable for everyone who attended. THANKS AGAIN WES!

The After-Reunion Sunday Luncheon was held at the Guild House in downtown Bakersfield. Sixteen folks attended and had an outstanding luncheon, a tour of the landmark house/restaurant and a chance to visit and reacquaint in a quiet setting. As noted above, pictures have been posted from the Luncheon!
