From Duane Johnson on May 1st, 2016
Image Viv moved to Richfield from NE Mn about 1960.  She and I were 'set up' (I believe by Bill Davis?) to attend the prom together.  We had a good time and ended up at Lake Nokomis Beach house at sunrise by a police officer tapping on my windshield.  That day we went to Battle Creek Park with others.  After graduation I went in the Army and Viv eventually got married as did I when I got out of the army in '65.  Then, one day I got a msg via Facebook asking if I was the Duane she knew.  That began a 2yr friendship via emails and Facebook posts.  We planned to one day get together for lunch and meet but her untimely death ruined that.  We had fun, shared many stories and found out that thru the years we probably passed each other in St Paul as we visited some of the same streets, businesses.  Weird.   RIP old friend.

From Jenny Fredrickson Adams on April 2nd, 2012
Sad to see Don Braum's name on the list of classmates we've lost. I got to know Don and his delightful sense of humor during our senior year while sitting across from him in world history class. I had always thought Don was shy - but the class was so boring that, after a few weeks of exchanging daily eye rolls as Mr. Bielke picked up the textbook and started reading, we began to write notes. Most days we spent the whole hour crafting written arguments about Hostess Banana Flips versus Li'l Angels - the faults and merits of each. Don was a Li'l Angel fan and I preferred Banana Flips. We would each write a page extolling our favorite and criticizing the other, then we'd exchange notes, do a rebuttal and exchange again. I wish I had saved the notes. I looked forward to that stupid class every day because Don's notes were so funny. I've thought about him over the years and wondered what happened to him. I hope he had a wonderful life.
 

Don Braum

1944 - October 3rd, 2011

 Don passed away on October 3, 2011 at his home in Alexandria, VA.  Sybille, his wife of 30 years, his daughter Anna and his son Dirk were by his side.  Don had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in October of 2010 and had undergone surgery, chemotherapy and radiation treatments to try and beat the cancer into remission.  He continued working until a few weeks before his death, determined not to allow the disease to keep him from doing what had been so important to him for so many years.

After graduating with a degree in Political Science from the University of Minnesota, Don joined the Marine Corps and served as a Platoon Commander in Vietnam.  He went on to do graduate studies in Philosophy at Vanderbilt University and in 1979 joined the Foreign Service.  His first posting was to Frankfurt, Germany, where he met his wife Sybille. They spend the next 30 years in the Foreign Service together, enjoying postings to Sudan, The Netherlands, Cyprus, Greece and Belgium.  Their travelling family grew to include their two children Anna and Dirk, two Labrador retrievers and a cat. In the later years of his diplomatic career Don was back in Washington working on issues such as genocide prevention and conflict resolution. He fervently believed in the importance of diplomacy to avoid conflict and to protect the innocent from persecution.

Don was an incredible athlete and liked to push himself to the limit of his endurance.  He loved biking and completed several 100-mile bike rides in Maryland and California during the past years He always looked forward to fin finding new ways of challenging himself.


Thank you to Don's wife, Sybille, for providing us with this information about Don.

 When I learned that Dennis Brown was killed in Viet Nam I was saddened and surprised.  I ran into Dennis in late 1966 inViet Nam when we were both hitching a plane ride out of Cam Rahm Bay to go  to our respective units.  I was returning from R&R in Bangkok and do not remember where Dennis was coming from.   It is amazing to me how among all the people in Viet Nam I ran into a fellow HS classmate. At least we had a chance for a short visit as we flew in a open door C47/DC3 out over the South China Sea to avoid the shells of the USS New Jersey battle  ship.  Apparently the plane could not fly high enough to avoid the shells so we had fly out and around her on the seaward side.
