David Neunuebel '65 reported that, after an 18 month battle with bladder cancer, his brother Scott Neunuebel '70 died.
Last June, he took a vacation to the Kansas City area to see his best friend, Phil Lakamp '69, from their old Brentwood neighborhood. During this visit, he spent the entire vacation in a KC hospital due to medical problems related to his treatments. After returning home to Santa Rosa, CA, his girlfriend, Susan, called the family together. His children, father and siblings, Barbara Neunuebel Cope '63 and Nancy Neunuebel '67, came from various parts of the country and Scott even made a joke or two before passing away in August.
