Richard Przekaza lost his West Rutland High School class ring almost 30 years ago, says the Rutland Herald. Not an unusual scenario perhaps, but where it was lost and how it was “found” is unusual. Przekaza’s ring was stolen from a storage facility when he was stationed with the U.S. Air Force near Tokyo, Japan. A U.S. Navy service member found it while he was stationed in Memphis, Tenn., and gave it to his former sister-in law, Gayle Murphy, who has been searching for Przekaza since then. The two finally “met” through an article that appeared in the Herald, when readers – mostly West Rutland High School classmates – led Murphy to Przekaza. “I know all about him and his family now,” said Murphy. “Everyone has been amazingly helpful.” Przekaza said Murphy’s thoughtfulness held more value than the ring itself. What’s he going to do with it when he receives it? “I’ll probably throw it in a jewelry box.” At least it’s been reunited with its owner.
