Comments:

After graduating from Start, I joined the Naval Air Reserve in December 1968. While going through Aviation Ordnance training in Jacksonville Florida, I applied to the Naval Academy but was runner up to a guy who was the captain of his high school football team... My active duty was served aboard the aircraft carrier USS Oriskany CVA-34 in the Tonkin Gulf off the coast of Viet Nam. I was able to visit Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Hawaii, Puerto Rico and the Philippines during my tours of duty, plus my ship was home-ported at Naval Air Station Alameda in San Francisco Bay, an area that I enjoyed. After my release from active duty I remained in the reserves for several more years. I returned to Toledo in 1972 and attended T.U. before relocating to Southern California in 1976 where I was actually born. I have been engaged in the imported automobile business ever since. Besides restoring and selling classic British sports cars, specializing in Jaguars, I enjoy travel and have been to Spain, England, Wales, France, Belgium, and of course Ireland many times... Never married, no kids, no regrets... Plenty of nieces and nephews...

School Story:

I'm sure that I was pretty much invisible to most of my classmates during my years at Start. I was not a "Social", not a "Hood" just one of the faceless rabble in between... I remember how my history teacher, John Wretschko, every December 7th, would recount his personal experience of Pearl Harbor. How as a P-40 fighter pilot he was able to get off the ground only to be shot down by our own forces after being mistaken as the enemy. Not big enough for most sports, I remember that I weighed only 127 pounds when I entered the Navy, so they put me on the bomb assembly crew for 12 hours a day, 7 days a week... Most of my social interaction in my high school years was with friends made through my involvement with Junior Achievement where I met kids from all over the city. As one of 8 children, there wasn't a lot of money to go around. No yearbooks, no class ring, no senior trip or prom ( I did take a couple of girlfriends to their proms though...) But I really didn't mind... I still have family in Toledo and have returned regularly over the years.

Obituary
 
Jacqueline K. Basinger, age 64, went to be with Jesus, after a sixteen year battle with M.S. on Friday, December 5, 2014. She was born January 30, 1950 in Toledo to Henry and Ruth Greeno. She was a graduate of Start High School and a former employee of Champion Spark Plug, White Tower and Ohio Department of Motor Vehicles. Jackie lived in Toledo all of her life and enjoyed spending summers at her parents cottage on Posey Lake, where she loved to water ski. As a teenager, Jackie and her best friend of 50 years, Sandy, loved sun bathing and listening to the Rolling Stones and the Beatles. Later in life, her greatest joy was knowing Jesus and serving others. She was a member of CedarCreek Church where she served as a greeter and a member of the prayer team. She loved spending time with family, cookouts (especially chicken salad and chocolate) and going shopping with her daughter-in-law, Heather "aka Dill Pill". Jackie loved reading the Bible and sharing God's love with everyone she met. Jackie inspired so many with her selfless living and her ability to consider the needs of others before her own. If you needed a listening ear or prayer, Jackie was always there. She was an amazing and loving mother, mother-in-law and grandmother. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends. Her greatest hope as of late was to be able to walk again. She is now in heaven, free of pain and walking with her savior, Jesus. Until we meet again Mom, we love and miss you.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Henry and Ruth Greeno, grandparents, Claude and Marie Eddinger, aunt, Dorothy (Bob) Kutsch and cousin, Sandy Bortel.
Jackie is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, Brian (Heather) Skomer, grandson, Blake Doom and Little C, brother, Henry Greeno Jr., aunt, Esther Rochte, and nephews, Jeff Greeno and John Greeno, cousins, Debbie (David) Hintz, Pat Hanson, Jim (Debra) Ross, Marsha Blessing and her 4 legged companions, Casey and Charlie.
Visitation will be at H. H. Birkenkamp Funeral home
