I’m not sure if this is Gerald “Squeaky” Harper but that’s the only Gerald Harper in the PNG graduating class of 1960 and the age is correct. If it is, my sincere condolences for he was a nice classmate and very funny and always had a smile when greeting you. If he is not “Squeaky “, still my sincere condolences but forgive me if I am incorrect.
