Larry Arcadi - jumpers from 70's Can't Post

I am looking info and contact possibilities for Larry Arcadi. He was jumping in California in late 70's.

Can anyone help?

Recently Jay Chagnon told me he had seen him a few months ago. Jay is living in Vallejo, CA. I haven't seen Larry is quite a few years...I remember his jet black hair....Jay says it's now white. Time flies!

Email me at rwcat@yahoo.com, and I'll forward it to Jaybird.

Larry was my role model when I first started jumping, even though he was younger. Haven't seen him in years but he's the reason I still own a Racer.

Damn! Now there's a name I haven't heard in years. Knew Larry at Antioch. I know the DZ is now homes but what ever happened to Perry Stevens?

Hi Jim,

Re: Perry Stevens

The last that I heard ( and it was many years ago ) was that he had retired and moved to the foothills of the Sierras somewhere.

Perry is still going strong and on Facebook. He'll be at the Old Friends Reunion this fall, which is also on Facebook.

Thanks, John. I sent Perry and Larry Facebook messages. I also sent, in a round-about way, one to Corinne Manverse (Chapman). Where and when is the Old Friends Reunion? I hadn't heard of that.

Went to the Old Friends Reunion and saw a bunch of really great people. Of course, Arcadi was a late/no show. I had to leave at 5:30 on Saturday to get back home (415 mile one way drive) so if he showed later I missed him. Did see Perry, however. He looks pretty good. Naturally he has CRS (Can't Remember Stuff) like we all do. Saw Corrine Manverse (now Chapman) and she still looks good. I had been thinking about Merle McCoy, as he was the one who shot the roll of me in freefall (I shot a roll of him as trade) and who was the first one I saw? Good ole Merle. I want to thank John for turning me on to the event. After 33 years it was good to re-connect with some of them and to meet others. I even saw George Morar's daughter, Lori. Last time I saw her she was about 12 and had a nice little business at Yolo taking pics of students and selling them. Thanks again, John. You made my year.

Sorry, Jim

Larry showed up right after you left I guess.

A great time, almost made Cardinal Puff, and got some old T-shirts from Merle that I had lost/wore out years ago.

RATS! Well I had to leave when I did. As it was I got home right at midnight and had to get up the next morning, eat breakfast, wash the car and drive to Las Vegas. Maybe I'll get to see you guys again in two years. I think I got to meet you while I was there, but I met so many people it's hard to keep track, especially at my advanced age. :-) Thanks, John.
