Alan Ceasar ,....now there's a name I haven't heard for sometime,..although we did mention his name ( if it's the same guy) both Alan & his brother Lorne used to race at Napierville in their old Chevy.......I don't know his wherabouts these days ,but one of Our members here ,knows a lot of the people who were into racing cars/boats etc etc ...... (can't recall who right now)........but if it's the same Ceasar's they used own Ceasar's TV on Church Av in Verdun,.and then moved to a real nice larger spot on Newman Blvd...in Lasalle......  I wonder if they are still around ?                                                                                                                HF&RV

Hi Les, haven't heard of the Busbys whereabouts since you have I guess. I know that Lorne Bryant and Lynn Yetman(good friend of mine who was posting as Levis Jeans last yr.) had a daughter together back in the early 90's. You remember Lynn, and her sister Glow Worm, they were lots of fun on this site. Lynn was the one who introduced me to V.C Wendy

Yes I Remember Levisjeans,.she was a neat character,& I thought she got a new computer & was ready to check in again,.....but sometimes Life has a way of getting in btwn what we want to do ..hope she's doing Ok ,.she seemed fun.......I didn't know she & Lorne had a daughter together,....Learn something new each day it seems.......She was living in North BAy wasn't it? Tell her we miss her input,& she's welcome anytime..........                 HF&RV

wendythepool MSN said...

Hi Les, had a nice holiday, thanks. Glad it's over and the kids went back to school today. Hurray! I haven't spoken to Lynn in a few months. I need to give her a call. She was busy with a new job last time we spoke. She is a fun person. I'll give her your message. Take care. Wendy

cdsalmela MSN said...

Was that the Caesar family that used to live on Richard Avenue between Verdun & Bannantyne?  If so, I used to go to school with one of the sons.   Carol

lynnmac5 MSN said...

Hi Les   George Breen passed a few months ago, and Joanne was married to Doug Warnock, who passed a few years ago, and they have a son. Donna (one of George's younger sister's) her husband passed in October.   P.S. I wonder.....what ever happened to Bruce Menard....   Lynn

les__f MSN said...

Hi LynnMac5,......   Yes I was aware of George's passing & Doug,.unfortunately we added both their names to the 'In Memoriam' link here on the site a while back...... Still seems strange when I see the amount of People I knew ,who have passed away,in what seems way to early.....but I suppose that's just the age we are at.........Thanks for the info...........    hf&rv

fenitern MSN said...

Anyone have info on Mike Duff, Brenda Valley, Bobby Lawson, Charly Bloomfield, Doreen Benenati and Ann Gray? Thanks

country girl MSN said...

Wow!  Haven't heard some of those names in way too many years, LOL.  the only one I have heard of (via 3rd party info) is Bonnie Rolfe, who is married (NOT to Tommy Sheppard) and living in the Ottawa area.  As for the others -- have no clue.

pat MSN said...

Hi Everyone , Does anyone remember Heather McDowell, she went to VHS, I don't know what year she graduated...could be around 1961 or 62.   Thanks Pat

the lad MSN said...

Hi   See mention of Tommy Sheppard..Anyone have any info on him. Last time I saw him was on Monk. Blvd. he was going into Dep.Know he has a business catering last I heard for the Habs at the Bell Centre.   Lad

the lad MSN said...

Les   Caesar's one and the same..Remember the old Chevy you talk about. Think the one I saw was 57..Outside store one night on Newman. We hung out talking to I think Alan in parking lot. Bought my first 8 track there. Faster I went louder it played too much..had them on the floor when I brought it back for a retrofit...too much   Lad

wendythepool MSN said...

Hi Lad,  I'm also curious as to what  happened to Tom Sheppard. I now he was dating Bonnie Rolf back in high school, and have heard that Bonnie is in Ottawa. He had a really cute younger brother, can't remember his name, what happened to him also? Wendy

bevy610 MSN said...

I see John Ferguson often in Verdun / Lasalle.  He is seeing someone by the name of Maureen who lives on Allard.  Same freckles, but forget about the hair - not much left. ho ho

the lad MSN said...

Wendy Tommy"s younger brother I think ended up working in the elevator trades. Lad  

gorderic MSN said...

Hi Bev:   Is that the John Ferguson that used to live at 442 Egan and then on Melrose, just below Verdun. He would likely be about 57 or 58.   Gord Gibbons Brampton, Ont. (formerly 444 Egan)

the lad MSN said...

Hi   Anyone know wherabouts of Danny Beck?     Lad

dannyb--1 MSN said...

Hi lad, Sorry to tell you this but Danny Beck passed away a few years ago. I don't know any more than that. I believe he was either married to or common law partner's with Lynn Griffin who grew up in LaSalle.  Danny

the lad MSN said...

Hi DannyB   Thanks for the update. I am sorry to hear this.Knew him for a long time one of the first guys I met at Bannantyne school when I moved back from the States. We hung out alot too..even lived across from each other on Willibrord.   Thanks again.. Lad          

cathyart1 MSN said...

I think the younger brother was Steven...he was a nice guy! And yes he was cute!

cathyart1 MSN said...

Heather MacDowell married Roy Ferguson YEARS ago-I haven't heard any news of either of them for ages now.

cathyart1 MSN said...

bevy-I don't think it's the same Fergie...but I know the one you are talking about.The one I mentioned was a thin funny guy who I heard rumours about and wondered if  what I heard was true...a sad story if it is.

the lad MSN said...

Dannyb   Can you tell me is Lynn is on this site? I am curious to what happened to Danny.   Thanks Lad

country girl MSN said...

Met up with him at the last (only?) VHS reunion -- he catered it.  Lived in Cote St. Paul at the time, and ran his catering business out of a tiny, derelict storefront in old Verdun (can't remember the name of the street, but it was near the ramp to the Champlain Bridge off Wellington St./Lasalle Blvd.).  Caters to lots of performers at the Forum (or whatever it's called now - where the Habs play) -- big rock stars.  Also does security for some of the big shows there.   Still single, has seen his share of the seedy side of life.  Sad his life turned out that way, I always thought he was a nice guy...

the lad MSN said...

Hi   Think Tommy is on Regina around corner from BBQ Rest. Last time we talked he lived in Cote St Paul and was having some of the guys for bbq and few pops to watch big fight on pay per view..while ago that one..but seemed to be happy then..laughing telling some good stories...have not seen him in long time...except when he passed me going in to dep. Did not have chance to talk to him..still looked the same...minus the cigar....   Lad

maggiemck MSN said...

Running his own successful business doesn't sound so sad to me!?

bevy610 MSN said...

I think we were talking about Johnny Ferguson, I know a Roy Ferguson he lives with his family in Chateauguay and is married with 3 children to Vicki Wrobleski,.  My grandson used to play hockey with his son.

the lad MSN said...

Hi   Speaking of the name Ferguson..anyone know anything about Gordie Ferguson?     Lad

theomer MSN said...

Hi, Cathy,   Just curious about your post re Heather MacDowell.  I'm wondering if we're talking about the same Heather.  The Heather I knew spelled her last name McDowell and went to VHS.  She would be in her early sixties now.  If this is the same person, may I ask you how you came to know her?  Many thanks.   Regards, dear members,   Jack

cathyart1 MSN said...

Hi Jack-my mistake-I believe it was KAREN  who married Roy-she's younger than I am so perhaps Heather is her Mom? I'l try to find out...sorry about the confusion! 

theomer MSN said...

Thank you, Cathy.  That would be much appreciated.   T.G.I.F.!   Jack

reno59 MSN said...

Hi Lad  Danny Beck was my cousin..He passed away about 10 yrs ago of a heart attack in Toronto..at the time he was still with Lynn

les__f MSN said...

I just read in the Habs Today column in the Gazette,that another old Hab ,.has checked out:   Kenny Reardon Kenny Reardon
Courtesy beehivehockey.com Hockey, and the Canadiens family, have lost another longtime great with the passing of Ken Reardon at age 86. Mr. Reardon, a rugged, virtually indestructible defenceman with the club during the 1940s, had been suffering from Alzheimer's disease. The two-time Stanley Cup champion served a distinguished post-hockey career with the Canadiens as a vice-president for 15 years, during which time Montreal won five more league championships. Mr. Reardon, one of the sharpest judges of talent during his day, was elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1966. From his biography at legendsofhockey.net: "Reardon retired before he turned 30, partially because of the many injuries he'd sustained due to his style of play. Even an incomplete list of his scars and breaks is daunting. He never seemed to allow himself to heal. One shoulder injury was supposed to keep him in the press box for three weeks but he returned to the Canadiens' lineup after only 10 days. He attempted to hit an opponent in his first game back, missed, and slammed the tender shoulder into the boards. He completed the game and then asked the team physician to look at the throbbing arm. "It's your head I should be examining, not your shoulder," replied the doctor.   ..........................................see ya Ken thanks for the entertainment & dedication to your sport..................ciao
