Cliff & The Gang, 1977

When my friends and I left home to go to Fresno State University, we took this picture and sent it home to our collective parents as a spoof, showing how we left home and all become hoodlums. And while a joke, it has become an iconic memory of our time together as roommates and our life-long friendships.

Pictured above, left to right, is Ted Laurvik, Myself, Sean Demery (George Prochazka), and Andi Marshall. We all attended Saddleback College in Mission Viejo, and all transfered together to FSU. We lost Andi to cancer in 2013 and Sean to a stroke in September. Amy and I placed this picture up on the shrine to Sean at his service on Saturday in Salt Lake City.
