Coach Tom Baldwin passed away quietly at his home on March 21 from complications with Parkinson's Disease. He was 85. Coach Baldwin began his coaching carrier at Santa Ana High School, then moved to Santa Ana Valley, a semi-pro team, and Costa Mesa High School. He retired in 2010. He led the 1967 Santa Ana High School football team to a 12-1 season, losing only to Anaheim in the CIF finals, held for the first time in the new Anaheim Stadium. We were very fortunate to have Coach Baldwin at our last reunion, the 45th, where he gave a short pre-game pep talk and joined us in our class picture. Services will be held sometime at the end of April. We will all miss you Tom.
