It’s sad to announce that Del Musso (ex ISD around 1952) passed away on January 28, 2014. He was 81 years old.
It’s sad to announce that Earl Claussen of Class 1963 passed away on February 8, 2014.
Wayne Otten (class of 1938) was one of the first two players from ISD to participate in the World Games for the Deaf (Deaflympics) in London, England in 1935. He also was one of the first players to represent the USA for the first time in history. He got his 2 medals in 100 meter and 200 meter track events. He passed away last Saturday, March 23 at the age of 95. ISDAA surely will miss him and thank him for putting ISD on the map of his participation at the Deaflympics.
