- Good evening, It is with sadness that I share the news of Harry Eichler ’46 passing on October 29, 2020. His obituary follows. Harry was known as Ike by his classmates. He was in the Machine Shop, sang in the Chorus, and was on the Track team. He was in the Library Club & Yearbook staff. His sister Helen Eichler Moreno ’47, and brothers Richard ’48 & Theodore ’50 also went to SOS. They are all deceased. Thanks to his daughter Angela he was able to come to a few reunions in recent years, which he enjoyed so much. Cards or notes of sympathy maybe sent to his Angela. I am sorry I don’t have any contact information for his other children.Angela Yvonne Eichler1604 Matthew TerraceLawrence, KS 66044Obituary
