Fred Maynard

It is with extreme sadness that I let our Scottsdale High friends know that my all-time best friend, my husband and father of our two children, Fred Maynard, class of 1960, died on May 1, 2005.

Life brought us two great kids, Teresa and Michael, three grandchildren, a crazy roller-coaster ride of working and entrepreneurial endeavors, with moves to San Diego, San Bernardino and finally to Richmond, VA.

Fred was warm and funny, very talented and a great listener. We would have celebrated 43 years of marriage this July. He skydived, scuba-dived, took dives off his motorcycle, sailed, wrote songs, played close to a dozen instruments and dreamed big dreams. In his later years he became a computer programmer and a great cook!

I regret we had not kept in touch with our old friends. Fred loved his years at Scottsdale High, Beaver Band, Tune Toppers and we laughed together with memories of those wonderful years. The trip to Chicago in December, 1959 was the start of our teenage romance and music formed our early years. Thanks to all who shared that with us.

Dave Sargent

Dave Sargent, formally known as David Stansfeld Sargent, M.D., died peacefully at his home in Seattle on July 8, 2006, following a long illness.

Dave attended SHS as a freshman in 1958-59, then transferred to the newly opened Arcadia High., from which he graduated in 1962. He went on to study pre-med at ASU, then got his MD degree at the University of Colorado in Denver, and did his pediatric residency at the University of Chicago hospital, and his psychiatry residency at Harvard University's Massachusetts Mental Health Clinic in Cambridge, Mass.

Dave was a geriatric psychiatrist in private practice in Seattle, where he had lived since 1989. Before that, he worked in a number of public mental health clinics in the Boston area, where he provided great help to low-income people, but did not make much money himself.

Dave played in the SHS and Arcadia bands as a trumpeter and drummer, but later in life took up the mandolin, guitar and bass fiddle, and played in Seattle bluegrass folk bands, which he enjoyed a lot.

He is survived by his wife Lenore, children Michael, Allison, and Kayla, and by his older brother Steve (SHS 1959) and by Steve's daughters Miriam and Eliana.
