09-06-2018 - Remember the 1967 Olympus High Titans -- On YouTube
Some of you viewed the PowerPoint (video) presentation Remember the Titans which was shown to the 40th, 45th and 50th Reunions. Those of you who didn't attend, of course, haven't seen it.
It is a quick look at our past through photos and music (a romp down memory lane). Recently you received an email about this website with a link to the video on Youtube. The link didn't work because of music infringement rights (Our Generation by The Who; Be True to Your School by the Beach Boys; and When I'm Sixty-four by the Beatles), but I have now put JUST the video without the music on YouTube with a new link:
It’s not as much fun without the music, but try to think the songs in your head as you watch it!

Ronald Drage Reynolds
SEPTEMBER 19, 1947 – AUGUST 18, 2018
Ronald Drage Reynolds, age 70 passed away suddenly August 18, 2018 with a fishing pole in the water at Strawberry Reservoir and surrounded by his loved ones.
He was born September 19, 1947 to Leonard LaDell and Vivian Drage Reynolds in Murray, Utah. Ron and Sharon were married in the Salt Lake Temple September 4, 1970 and they never missed celebrating an anniversary together.
Ron loved everything outdoors from fishing to hunting to boating . The mountains were his favorite place to be with his wife, family and loved ones. Anyone camping with Ron looked forward to Ron’s turkey in the ground and Sharon’s peach cobbler. Ron was your man for every tool, gadget and accessory available. Chrome was his favorite color.
Ron was a Sandy City Fireman for 31 years, serving his family, friends and community. Recently he shared with his family how fulfilling it was to be able to help people in their time of need and how much he loved being able to help them solve their problems. That desire to help others stayed with him through his whole life. The love he had for his wife, children and grandchildren was apparent to anyone who ever met Ron. He dearly loved and missed his sweet wife and it isn’t a surprise to anyone who knew Ron and Sharon that their time apart was short.
They just couldn’t stand to be away from each other!
