Jean and Gary Sturdivan 1988
As a direct result of my blog I’m brought back into contact with many former Los Angeles Times colleagues, which makes all my efforts worth the time I spend on my hobby.
Two weeks ago I received an email from Gary and Jean Sturdivan, wondering if I was related to former Times truck driver Edward Padgett Sr. I answered with a quick response, YES!
After exchanging many emails and answering questions about former employees I directed the two to my Flickr page, and they just loved reminiscing about their careers at the Los Angeles Times.
Jean shared a picture on their first cruise, right after their retirements from the Times in 1988, and a recent picture of their sixth cruise, taken a few months ago. They would love to hear from their former colleagues, so drop them an email at JeanncarrolNOSPAMaol.com .
Just remove the NOSPAM from their email address and insert the @ sign, the NOSPAM was inserted to prevent spammers from gathering and adding them to mailing lists.
