My goodness, Mr, Christine was my PE coach in 1971. Most adolescent boys give their PE teachers heck, and I'm sorry the kids gave Mr. Christine so much grief. He sounds like he was an interesting man. Sorry to hear about his passing. Condolences to you Mike.

Any postitive comments are welcome. Our dad Mark spanned a few generations of Jordan students. Even with the normal teasing by students, Dad loved his work and spent countless hours after school with his coaching. He was very involved with the early days at HP also, entertaining at the picnic's and for various family functions. We hope he will be remembered fondly.
