Alan Strain

Dear Pacific High School folks;

As you may have heard, Alan Strain passed away peacefully on
August 26th at home in Santa Cruz, with all his family around him.
He had suffered a few strokes in the last few years compounded by
congestive heart failure, and as sad as we are to say goodbye, we
feel that perhaps he was ready to move on.

Alan helped to found Pacific High School in 1962, and taught
math there for the first few years of the school’s existence as well
as handling important organizational duties. I think he had a
profound influence on many students.

The family is planning a memorial service on Saturday,
September 13th at 10 am at the Santa Cruz Friends meeting at 220
Rooney St. (take the Morrisey exit off highway 1, south of Santa
Cruz). All are welcome to come for the opportunity to share memories and feelings about Alan.

Most sincerely, Laurie Friedman (Alan’s inherited daughter
and PHS student 1962-3) You may call for more information at (530) 758-9668.
