Raymond Prestage (1953)

Hi Chick this is Raymond Prestage, it was so sad to hear of your sisters death as we were in the same grade. Remember the many clases we had together and voting for her to be one of our cheerleaders. She one of the nicest girls in school. By the way I remember Hal I think you made a good choice.  Raymond

It is with great sadness I share that my sister-in-law Cheryl Cason Davis passed away Saturday April 2, 2, 2022. We will have a celebration of life service here in Georgia after the kids get out of school. (Sometime in June)

Cheryl Davis

Cheryl Davis, 64, of Chillicothe, died early morning April 2, 2022, at the Adena Regional Medical Center, following a month-long illness.

She was born June 15, 1957 in Atlanta, GA to the late Charles and Imojean Ray Cason. On March 11, 1976 she married William Allen Davis, who died July 27, 2003. Survivors include her son, Andrew (Desiree) Davis, of Chillicothe; four grandchildren, Grace, Lyric, Cole and Ayda; and a sister, Marcie Maye, Greenville, GA.

Barbara "Bunny" Freeman (Watson) (1953)

I apologize for not updating sooner.  My precious mother, Barbara "Bunny" Freeman Watson (class of 1953), went to her heavenly home in May 2020.  God answered her prayers and took her quickly (cancer). Even with Covid, I had the privilege of moving in with her and never leaving her side.  I was a blessed daughter indeed to have THE most giving and self-sacrificing mother and a wonderful dad as well. What a legacy my parents leave!

Bunny loved her CPHS family and spoke of so many of you often.


Warm regards,


Laura Watson Neeley, 

Henry and Bunny's daughter

John (Randy) Phillips (1967)

I was very early on the way to pick up my wife at the Atlanta airport so I jumped off on Virginia Ave. for a quick trip down memory lane.  Driving down the streets that I used to walk home from school started my memory cells to stir.  Yep, there is still the football atheletic field, and there's the coach Wallace's classroom where he practiced swinging the paddle.  So I drove back by where the cannon was and although it is not there, it was there in my mind.  I am glad to report that all the buildings are there, but not sure what they are being used for.  I think the city took it over and there are offices around that area.  So many memories of all you fellow classmates!

Dan Bruce (1960)

Congratulations on the new novel, Carolyn. Seems that the Class of 1960 is blessed with authors. My latest publication, the non-fiction book titled THE MESSIAH PROPHECY IN THE TANAKH, is a commentary on Daniel 9:24-27. It is also available at Amazon, and available as a free download in PDF format from my website at:

The word "Tanakh" is the Jewish word for what Christians call the Old Testament, from TNK, the three sections of the HebrewScriptures (Torah, Nevi'im, K'tuvim).

My best to you guys.

Thomas Marshall Miller (1958)

I Googled Charles Skippy Palmer Georgia and got a hit with voter data that says his address is 155 Mossy Hollow, Newnan, Georgia 30265.  It says he was born in 1938.  I knew he was a little older than the rest of us because he had been in the army. gives the same address plus a phone number, 770-253-9785, and notes that he was born Jan 1938 and is 84 years old.

Ruby Victoria Hardegree Price (now Victoria (Vicki) Price), class of 1948

After retiring as a professor of English for 42 years at Lamar  University in Beaumont, TX, I finally retired when I was 83.  After five years  a lovely retirement community there, almost exactly one year ago, I moved to the Chicago area of Ilinois (Addison, IL) to be nearer my daughter Patti Noible. I am actively participating in activities at Claremont of Addison, another lovely retirement community.  I stay busy working on genealogy, reading, serving as an Ambassador at Clarendale and on the Resident Council in addition to being the librarian of our library here.  I have 7 living grandchildren (2 died), 9 great-grandchildren, and one great-great grandson.  At 90, I'm still going strong  Please put me on the Illinois list, as I am no longer in Texas after 66 years there.

Deborah Lane (Brown) (1976)

Hi guys! I graduated in 1976. I married in January of 78. Had 38 years of a nice marriage until 2016 when my hubby passed away. Upon his death, I wrote and published a book about the last nine years of his life being disabled. It was a hit book and sales are nice. The book is titled: Oh No? Not again. If you want to look it up on Amazon, type in the title and Deborah L. Brown and it will come up. It's a great grief counseling book. See you guys in the sequel.

Carl Cartledge (1959)

Hi. This is Carl Cartledge, class of 1959, catching classmates up on what has been going on since I graduated. Some of  this  you may know from past reunions, some you may not. After graduating from CPHS and then UGA, I spent four years in the Navy. After training, I spent the remaining three and a half years overseas, but was never on a ship. Two wonderful years were spent in Tokyo on a Joint Service Intelligence facility.Next I went to a communincations station near Rabat, Morocco. The year after discharge, I entered service with the V.A., first in Jackson Mississippi, then Atlanta and the final 23 years in Louisville, Kentucky where my two sons were raised. One is still there, the other in Los Angeles. With the G.I. Bill I was able to complete graduate education in vocational rehabilitation counseling and retired in 2000 as a counseling psychologist. The year following retirement, my wife Melody and I moved to Athens where we remained for 17 years. Through the years,I 've enjoyed golf and singing. Groups I've sung with include four barbershop choruses,the Athens  choral society and the current community chorus I sing in. In 2018 Melody and I moved to metro Houston to be near Melody's daughter from a prior marriage. We live in a Del Webb retirement community in suburban Richmond, Texas. At 81, I'm blessed to be in good health and have many fond memories of class mates at CPHS.
