I was a classmate of Jeff and Stacy Hamblen but primarily knew their brother Arch as he was the high school boyfriend of my Lake Barcroft neighbor Laurel Larson (also class of '72). I would see Archie over at the Larsons' house a number of times, including at the parties Laurel's father would have for his students at the Annandale campus of Northern Virginia Community College before taking his class on trips aboard. He was a friendly and fun loving guy. Laurel and Arch gave me a ride to their Stuart graduation at the football field in 1972, when Robert Finch was the guest speaker, whose son Kevin was in the graduating class. I saw Laurel and her brother Tom, also a Stuart alumnus, in California in May where they live now. Laurel asked if I knew anything about Arch, with whom she lost touch in the late '70s. I didn't but asked Jeff about Arch when I saw him in July at a class of '74 birthday party together one of our classmates organized in Falls Church. Jeff told me the sad news that Arch had passed away.
