I have memories of Emil as a thoroughly outgoing guy.  He was fun-loving, and sometimes shocking, for this "staid" young girl who was not used to his style of humor!   So glad to hear that he has had a good life.  Bonnie

Very sad to hear of Emil's passing...had an opportunity to get re-acquainted via a telephone conversation about ten yrs ago in an attempt to convince him to attend our re-union. He was content to stay put,but we shared memories nonetheless. His career emulated his Dad's wishes,(Huck's Inn) and the tradition of Huck hospitality was continued in Caribou, Maine.My condolences to his family and peace be with ol friend and classmate Emil,

After the 50th reunion and reported profiles but none appearing from Emil, I decided to seek out Emil because he was one of 2-3 boys who invited me to the senior prom (which, unfortunately,  I did not attend for "religious" reasons).  I did not know him well but I always remembered Emil's fun nature and kindness in whatever classes we had together.  I did find him.  He was living at The Villages in Florida and we had many interesting and engaging phone conversations over several months.  He was the same warm-hearted person that I remembered full of entertaining stories from the distant and recent past.  He was dealing with some ongoing health issues then but in all our phone conversations, he never let that get in the way of being very present managing to extend his unique engaging forthright  good caring nature.  I am just glad I decided to look him up again a few days ago if only to share his passing with the class.

Emil and I were neighbors and buddies throughout our Cooke School and Redford years. He had an infectious laugh and was always mischievious (much to the dismay of some of his teachers). I lost track of him  but am glad he had a good life doing what he enjoyed.  I remember his restaurant- Huck's Inn Between- on Grand River near the high school which he had for several years during the '60's. He had a white Ford convertible his senior year and drove four of us who lived on our block to school every day. He was always fun.I know he will be missed.
