Loy Rooke & Judith Johnson Rooke
Judy and I met and started dating in our senior year at Paschal. After graduation, we both moved to Austin and attended U.T. We married one year later in the summer of 1957, and we’re still together after 46 years. We have three children and eleven grand children (eight boys and three girls). I spent 25 years with the Dearborn Stove Company in Dallas, and retired as president and chairman in 1989. Since that time, I’ve been in the propane gas equipment business in Dallas. Judith and I (she goes by Judith now) moved back to Cowtown several years ago, and live about two miles from Paschal in the Ryan Place addition. Judith spends her time helping with the grand kids, and serves on the Board of Directors of the Women’s Club of Fort Worth.
We both look forward to the 50th Reunion in 2006. See you there!
