Comments: I just wantto say Hi to all my Zony brothers and sisters. I lived in Panama and specifically Albrook A.F.B. from 1967 to 1971.I attended Curundu J.H. and would have graduated Balboa H.S. class of "72" had my family not recieved orders to return to the U.S. to of all places Abilene,Texas. Nothing against Texas but it sure isn't Panama. By the time I made it back to the zone all my friends had returned to the states for college. So I never saw my friends again. I had a good friend a Norwegian American by the name of Bernard Everson. His father was some administrator for the Panama Canal Co. They used to live near the back gate near Quarry Heights.

Comments: Hi! Looking for any lost cousins? If you have knowledge or have information on the Kunkel Family living in Panama since 1908, please email me. Working feverishly on family tree. Thank you. Please read info below. Regards, Dave Edward F. Kunkel / Paul A. Kunkel / Catherine Glinski Family Web Album PANAMA CONNECTION In 1908, Edward F. Kunkel and his wife, Nora Cullinane Kunkel, and his brother, Walter Kunkel and his wife, Emma Keany Kunkel, went to Panama as engineers to help in the construction of the Panama Canal Zone. Natives of Readville, MA, Edward and Walter and their families came to the Panama Canal Zone and worked for the Isthmian Canal Commission. Edward was employed by the Panama Canal's Dredging Division and Walter was Supervisor of the Forge Shop. Edward and Walter were avid sportsmen and enjoyed fishing and hunting alligators in Panama in their spare time as well. Edward stayed in Panama after the opening of the Panama Canal, a veteran of the Panama Canal construction days, until retiring in 1948. Edward returned to the USA for a short time in 1948, but returned to the Panama Canal Zone to live in 1950. His wife Nora stayed in Readville, MA with family, not returning to Panama. Edward died in 1962 in Panama. Paul Anthony Kunkel, Edward's son, married Annabelle Carr and also stayed behind in Panama with his family. Paul was employed in the Panama Canal Zone as a locomotive driver and worked in the forge shop. He left Panama in the 1970's and retired to Zephyer Hills, FL. Paul died in 1984 in Kerrville, Texas, while on vacation visiting his brother Edward Kunkel. Annabelle and Paul A. Kunkel's daughter, Catherine Teresa Kunkel, was born in Panama and now lives in Collegeville, Pa with her husband, Joseph Glinski, and three sons. In addition to Catherine Teresa Kunkel, Paul and Annabelle also had three other children: Paul Anthony Kunkel, Jr., Patricia Jean Kunkel, and James Michael Kunkel. Walter and his family returned to the United States in 1913 and expanded Frank Kunkel & Sons, Inc., a steel forging company in Readville, MA, incorporated in 1883. Walter's son, Charles A. Kunkel, joined his father's company as a hammersmith at 16 years old and later became President of Frank Kunkel & Sons, Inc. Charles married Hazel Arlene Tinkham and raised 3 children in Canton, MA. Frank Kunkel & Son, Inc. was involved in the WW II war effort and made custom parts for the defense dept and became a sub-contractor for Raytheon and General Dynamics. In 1968, Charles A. Kunkel, President, sold the corporation and retired. An avid outdoor sportsman also, he died in 1992 in Boston, MA after nearly 25 years of retirement. He is survived today by a son, David L. Kunkel of Hauppauge, NY, and two daughers, Debra Kunkel Stango, of Lakeland, FL and Diane Kunkel Kane of Bridgewater, MA.

Made a few (almost) friends - wasn't quite bratty enough to rate permanent insiderliness. Went to a cool production of "Streetcar Named Desire" with the Goodrich kids (Hey, out there), ate papaya at Toboga and hiked to the cross with my brother, went to dinner at the Union Club with Ruby Quintero, saw square trees at El Valle, etc., etc., What a great place!

It is not a bad hotel...it is the Hyatt in downtown Tampa....but not the best place to be because you will either need to walk a long distance to the new Marriott,,or cab it,,, The tram that used to run,,(for those that remember the last reunion in Tampa) is no longer there. The walk from downtown Tampa to Harbour Island is long...especially after some Ron Cortez... Later,,,, Ed

Comments: Came out of the Y2K bunker, watched the Rose Parade, noticed that electricity still worked, that there was no cataclysm, and that my various computers did not assume animated life and strangle me in my sleep. Nice day, except for the rain. Reminds me of Panama, except that this should be the middle of dry season. Nice sentiments being expressed in these pages. I think most of us wish the best for Panama. By the way TRFKATCZ is 'The Region Formerly Known As The Canal Zone', a cue taken from Prince. (Sorry! The artist formerly known as Prince) Vaya con dios, ya'll

Comments: Greetings to Skeeter, Lesley, and CZ Brats throughout the World! Again, THANK YOU for the wounderful meeting place! May the Country of our home (and dreams) be treated with the kindness and respect needed to grow and prosper; and may her ruling classes treat the general masses with the consideration which comes from accurate responsibility and leadership of truly great leaders. That the peoples of Panama may truly rise above the level of poverty....that is my prayer...Amen
