  6. Denny Moyer lived across the street from me in the housing development called Kellog Park. This was in the middle fifties.

I remember Denny played the guitar and sang. Not bad either.

  7. Grew up with his daughters Denise, Wendy. And Cindy. They were our neighbors on 158th st portland oregon. Early to late seventies. Would be awesome to reconnect with them.
