Thank you for setting up this amazing website. As others have mentioned I have only been invited to one class reunion. I think a nice addition (perhaps I missed that page) to this website would be short bios of our classmates. Cindy

In memory of the special one with the face of an angel,the voyce of an angel,added to the many kind words and deeds Kim sent my way that still make all who knew her smile and look to the clouds even after all these years.As sad and as hard as it is, Kim is now,and forever will be, an angel herself,whose soulful,sweet voice amazes even the other angels.What a loss to any she touched.But Kim left her mark and the memory of her will live on and survive the ages.One thing is for certain,we will not she the likes of this angel walk this way again.Thanks,Kim

This is a great web site to visit and it is well designed, user friendly, and developers and managers of this site deserver a "WELL DONE". I left Knoxville High in the middle of my junior year but have always been a part of the class of 1958 all my life; and especially in my heart. Someone was nice enough to include me in the class album photos, and that means an awful lot to me! Thank You!

I just want to duplicate my posting below to make sure that every reader sees my request for obituaries. We want an obituary for every deceased graduate of KHS or for anyone who attended KHS for a significant amount of time. Please look through all the class albums on the site and see if there is a missing obituary that you could provide. Perhaps you have a relative or family friend for which you can provide an obit or know who could provide us with an obit. If you do not actually have an obit but could write the equivalent of one for the site that would be great also. Your help is appreciated. Thank you and thanks so much to Ruby (Robuck) Dursky for all the hours she has contributed to maintaining this site.

Linda Rickabaugh

Tim Faber
Class of 1967
Very nice website, thanks for creating and maintaining this link to the past. I enjoyed looking at the photos of classmates and friends from other classes as well. Knoxville will always have a special place in my heart, hope to visit at least once more before I leave this life.

Alan Larimer

I was in the class of 68 but moved prior to graduation, Dad was a construction worker who helped build the Red Rock dam. I'm sure few people remember me, as with everywhere else I lived as a kid I wasn't in Knoxville very long. Served in Vietnam 1972, became a federal police officer, now retired. Sorry to see some of the class of 68 have passed away. Later, Al

This is a great site. I loved seeing the class albums again. I miss everyone and am always proud to say I was born and raised in knoxville, it's a great town. I HOPE to get back there soon, but i've been saying that for 40 yrs now.

Tom Craft
Class of 1960
Great site, thanks to Ruby and anyone who may help her. Don't get back to Knoxville very often, but enjoy my time there when I do. Attended 50th reunion in 2010 and ahd one of the best times I've ever had.

Russ Tandy
Class of 1968
I just showed my 8 year old grandson my class of '68 high school photo. He saw the name under my picture but he laughed out loud and said " that's not you". Thanks for the site. It's really amazing how many are gone.

Deborah Goins
Class of 1941
I am the daughter of Marie Filliman Goins, class of 1941. My mother, Marie, passed away on January 24, 2012, here in Florida. I wanted to put her name in the website in the event someone would remember her. She, and my dad, James Goins, formerly of Knoxville Iowa, were great people and I know they both retained a connection to Knoxville and their youth.

Maurice "Moe" Wadle
Class of 1960
First, my profound thank you to Ruby (Robuck) Dursky, KHS '65, for all her prodigious hours of work on this site..(everyone study those class albums, too.) Second, I really, really enjoy the historic aspect of this site with the albums and I really, really love the Homecoming Alum party every year. Lastly, Ruby wants an obituary, or at least a thumb-nail biography of every deceased KHS graduate. So, please study all those class albums...older and newer to see if you have a deceased parent, family member or whomever for whom you can provide information Thanks to all the hard workers in Knoxville who are making all of this happen.

I would have graduated from KHS except, after going to school in Knoxville all my life, my folks moved us to CA in the middle of my sophomore year. I love this website as I can see old familiar faces. I was so happy to be able to look up my Mom and Grandma's graduation photos!!!!! WOW!!!!!!

John Schlepphorst

Just attended our 40th class reunion and had a blast! We had people come in from all over the country. Washington, South Carolina, Georgia, Texas, Montana and more but it always amazes me why the people right there in our own community never show up. Too bad you missed seeing a lot of people asking about you and a great time. Thanks to the reunion organizers! Good job!

Class of 0000
I am formerly from Oskaloosa and have found Mike Reigle's Knoxville class ring. I have been searching for him so I can return it to him.

My Ely-Brobst-Kline and extended families were some of the first to live in Knoxville. I was there this summer for the 3rd time and again, very impressed with the kindness of your citizens and the look of your community and schools! Best wishes to you all. (My hometown here in Oregon is planning a high school reunion for anyone who ever attended there. It will be next summer and I can hardly wait.)

Steve Edwards
Class of 1969
Fine job on the web site. Who maintains it? On another note, I am constantly amazed that every time I see photos of improvements being made in Knoxville I see my Uncle Bob in the picture, working his tail off. Putting relationship aside I think we need to change the name of the town to Bobville.

Cynthia Beaver

Hi to everyone. Is there any plans for a reunion in the future? I am glad to find this site.

Was wondering if there has ever been a class reunion for Class of '96, and if not, would like to help plan one. In the future, I should be able to assist with fundraising activities, etc. I am currently beginning a new Non-Profit Organization called Global Alliance Against Child Abuse. I am proud to have been from Knoxville and still support Knoxville Panthers all the way!!!

Hi to all 65 & 66 classmates. Facebook has certainly shortened the miles. I retired from nursing & live in the "banana belt" of Colorado for now. My daughter Lisa & grandaughter want me to move back to Steamboat Springs, Co. & I am considering it if the housing market steadies out. I bought a victorian home here. I have a dog- still single & have fun in my mts. Thank you for this great site.

I had the great privilage to attend the 2009 Homecoming and truly enjoyed riding on out "54" float and seeing the many Knoxville citizens turn out with pride. So, with that being said, I want to thank you for letting me relive it while viewing your many photos in Album selection. In addition, I am amazed with your thorough and impressive website that reflects interesting happenings in my beloved home town. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!

What a great job everyone has done back home! I miss running on the only square/oval track in Iowa! I very much miss the smell of a Friday night on a damp October night at Panther Stadium! The smell of cigarette smoke, fallen leaves and football. What a great place to grow up!

Doug Nickerson
Class of 1975
I attended the 5 year reunion for the class of '75. Since then, I've lived in Wyoming & California & now back in Iowa. I've never had ANY luck trying to find out about other class reunions. I'd love to come to another one & see who else is a Grandpa!
