My Name is Brenda Parker Dunbar and Guy and Roberta (Berta) were my grandparents.

Bob Mike White class photo

Here's a treasure of a photo of the Gustine Graduating Class of 1939. The
guy on the bottom left hand row was my Uncle Bob Mike (Mickey) White. He was my
Mother's brother. The son of Guy and Bertie White of Gustine. He served in
the Air Corps during WW 2. He was shot down in Germany on  March 18 1944 and is
buried in France.
Maybe someone researching can find a relative in the photo of the class
