Would that be J.B. Coffey? I can remember him from the late 50s. He had lost an eye and I was told he was present at the bombing of Pearl Harbor.

Jay B. Coffey was the son of Charles E. and Cynthia Coffey of Hood River. His wife was Colleen Barcley.
I don't think Coffey and Matya were Crag Rats, probably friends who make the climb. Bob and George Sheppard were brothers, living on Dethman Ridge in Pine Grove.

I was looking for some information for yesterday's photo and came across this Mt Hood 1947 climbing incident involving the Sheppards.
It is in the left hand history column titled....
"VERBATIM: Avalanches Sweep North Side of Hood
Small Groups of Crag Rats In Slide"

Wasn’t Jay B. the mayor of Hood River at one time?
