Sad News: If I remember correctly, John's father was an assistant principal at NAHS.

January 28, 2011

Evening News and Tribune

John R. Willman

65; of Floyds Knobs

— A funeral Mass for John R. Willman, 65, of Floyds Knobs, will be 1:30 p.m. Monday, Jan. 31, at St. Mary of the Knobs Catholic Church, with burial  in St. Mary of the Knobs Cemetery. He died Thursday, Jan. 27, 2011, at Floyd Memorial Hospital and Heath Services.

He retired in 2001 after 34 years as an educator within the New Albany Floyd County School system. Through his career, he touched many lives as an English teacher, Athletic Director, football and wrestling coach. His commitment to education continued as a member of the Indiana State Teacher’s Association, the New Albany Floyd County School Board, President of the New Albany High School Alumni Association, and a Co-Chair of the New Albany High School Hall of Fame. He continued his service to the community as an active member of St. Mary of the Knobs Catholic Church. He volunteered as a Eucharistic minister, a regular lector, an annulment counselor, a member of numerous committees, and as the President of the Parish Council. He was a trusted friend and confidante to many, always ready with a smile and wry sense of humor. His commitment to service — community, family and friends — is a gift that was shared with everyone he touched. “Big John,” as his family knew him, took his job as grandpa very seriously. “Camp Willman” was always open to his three grandsons, and nieces and nephews, where they spent long hours fishing, building campfires and tromping through the woods.

Survivors include his wife, Marietta; his son, Rob and his wife, Megan; his daughter, Alys Willman (Daniel Malec); his sister, Jane Willman (Mike Kasse); grandsons, Lucas Willman (11), Trace Willman (9) and Nicolas Willman (5) with another grandchild due this March.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Bob and Mary Dixie Willman.

Visitation will be at Seabrook Dieckmann & Naville Funeral Homes, Market Street Chapel, New Albany, from noon to 8 p.m. Sunday, and from 9 a.m. to noon Monday.

The family requests expressions of sympathy take the form of contributions to Harry Shields Fund in care of Hazelwood Middle School or the Building Fund of St. Mary of the Knobs Catholic Church.

Hi all.  I'll be giving a very brief talk at one of the NAHS reunion events about our school radio station. Having now spent 50 years in radio broadcasting following graduation from NAHS, I think I can handle the topic. I was wondering how many WNAS-FM staff will be attending? If you were on WNAS-FM during our senior year (Sept 62 to May 63), please let me know. Also, if you have any stories about your experience at the station or Jerry Weaver, please share. I have a special email address to communicate directly without going through the NAHS website, it's can call me at my office, toll free 800-827-1722 (Mon-Fri 10am-4pm.  Thanks. see you in a few weeks.

Hi, Classmates.

     We are all turning 71 this year. We have also lost many from our class.

We really don't have much quality time left. I know a lot of us are on Facebook, but it would be nice to communicate here. Just keep everybody informed as to what you're doing, where you are living, travelling. Kids, Grandkids, Great Grandkids?

I live on the beach in Costa Rica. Been here about 6 years. I have 3 children, 5 grandchildren and two great grandchildren. Still married to the old man for 53 years.We enjoy the birds, sloths, monkeys and birds. We have active volcanoes and earthquakes every day. It is wild here and that is what makes it interesting. 

Now, tell us about you. You don't have to live in an exotic place or have lots of family. What do you like to read.? What TV shows do you like? What was your last great dinner?

I just don't want to see your passing and not know anything about you.

Come on, please?

Hello all...especially Patricia...

As of this writing I am in Taipei, Taiwan riding out the remnants of the second typhoon in 4 days. Supposed to be sunny and tropical but rainy and windy and I haven't seen the sun since Friday morning when I was able to ascend Elephant Mountain and get some spectacular shots of downtown Taipei and Taipei 101 building. I still have another week to go here, so I'll catch up.


Went to Taipei Symphony concert at National Concert Hall and today will meet up with some friends and go to dinner later. Bo is visiting family in Beijing. Because Bo is still Chinese citizen, it is actually easier for me to visit Taiwan than it is for him, due to the political differences. He will be getting his permanent US status "green card" soon that will enable him to travel more like American.

I was looking for a place to post photo to this message, but cannot find it so I'll post some Taiwan pics via my profile.

Stay well all. I'll be back in NYC week of 9/26...if you ever get to NYC, holler.
