 Hi guys,

I've got Mr. Hendry's printed profile in front of me that was handed out at the thanksgiving service the other day (beautiful service, by the way).

Here's a quote:
"For the last 25 years of his teaching career, Kelvin taught at Scarborough Senior High School.  He was known by fellow staff as 'Mr. Fix It', obligingly repairing anything brought to him!

Then it says that he took early retirement at 58 years of age and Mr. Hendry lived for another 12 years, dying (of cancer) at age 70.

So, working the maths out: Mr Hendry would have been at Scarborough around the years 1967 to 1992... That's what I'm guessing.  Long time, huh?

Seeya,

Max Randall

Mr Hendry really was the best. I too learnt SO MUCH from him, especially how to make your own leather sandals (very cool for the 70's)and plait a leather belt. Thanks for everything Ellen xx
