Image I remember Heidi as a positive, funny person, who often brought smiles forth in tough situations.  I have not seen Heidi since high school, but it does not surprise me she continued onward to be the successful person she became.  I'm glad she kept her wonderful sense of humor and her amazing ability to make the best out of every situation.

Robert William Whitesides passed away surrounded by family on February 28, 2018 after a valiant fight with cancer. Bob was born October 6, 1946 to William Waldo Whitesides and Beryl Rigby in Logan, UT. Bob's family moved to the Bay Area where he grew up. Bob married Dale Kliewer and together they had one son Ryan Douglas Whitesides. They were later divorced. 

It was inspiring to see the way Bob approached life. He worked hard to be the best in every pursuit. He was a cement mason, hardscaper, house painter, salesman, print technician, golfer and artist.

Later in life Bob was truly converted to his religion, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He loved the teachings and never hesitated to share his testimony with anyone around him. Bob would carry around copies of the Book of Mormon and if anyone didn't have one, he would be sure to give them one.

To be closer to a temple and in a smaller town, Bob moved to St. George, UT. There he painted inside the LDS Temple and attended the temple every day. Bob made many friends in St. George.

Bob is survived by his brother Rodney, 4 sisters Gay, Jane, Paula and Andrea, and his son Ryan. Services for Bob will be held on Saturday March 3 at the LDS Church, 511 Valley View Dr., St. George at 5 pm.

Judi was looking forward, cautiously. She was still enthusiastically making plans to travel and attend performances. She was continuing to decorate her Sonoma home because she liked being surrounded by good taste and quality. Most importantly, she was maintaining close relationships to family and friends when her colorful life was cut short on June 6, 2016, after a challenging illness. Judi, who was born in Oakland, CA, is survived by her beloved daughter Ryane Smith of Petaluma. To Judi, close friends were her extended family, especially longtime friend, Wendy Barbaria of Tiburon, who calls her "a force of nature," and Kevin Bonds, who she viewed as a son. He called her Moms. Judi, the daughter of William and Rita Braunstein, was a trail-blazing career woman before such paths were the norm. At 19, she started selling real estate in the Bay Area. In her rookie year, she was her agency's top seller. In the next five decades, she also became a successful developer, designer, decorator and mortgage broker, mostly in Marin County. She was also a single mother and proud of it. To those who knew her best from many walks of life professional circles, the 12-Step recovery program she was devoted to (FA), her cancer support group in San Francisco, fellow bridge and poker enthusiasts and neighbors (from Marin, San Francisco and Sonoma) the common descriptions of Judi include: larger than life, powerful figure, a great lady, beautiful spirit, a character, opinionated, optimistic, self-confident, kind-hearted, inspiring, charming and one of a kind. Wendy, who misses Judi terribly, is grateful that her closest friend "got to leave this world still being fabulous." Naturally, per Judi's wishes, there will not be a funeral. Instead, a celebration of her fabulous life is being planned for July. Date and venue to be announced soon.

From Seth Buechley on August 18th, 2019
Eulogy for Mark Buechley 1946-2016
Uncategorized Apr 21, 2018

Today, April 21st, is the two year anniversary of my dad, Mark Buechley's, passing.  He was a a great dad and an intentional mentor.  For those that are interested in understanding who he was and the legacy he left, these are my notes from the eulogy I was privileged to deliver at his celebration of life.  It was an adventurous life indeed!
With gratitude,
************
  • My dad grew up roaming the hills of Oakland CA with his two brothers. They loved to play pick-up football in the park.  They were active, scrappy, tall and lean.
  • They were taken care of, but largely left to their own without real emotional connection with their parents.
  • His father was brilliant, but he was also distant with a hard demeanor. Considering that his father had been abandoned at the age of 10 to lead his family, we can see how that might show up later.
  • My dad wanted a connection with his dad, so before he was 8 he learned contract bridge and they competed together in tournaments.
  • He told us that by early age, he knew he was on is his own in this world
  • Against his wishes, his parents moved to Santa Monica. He lived with his uncle his senior year to graduate from Skyline High in Oakland, CA’
  • In his parents’ eyes not going to college or being an academic was equivalent of not being successful. Each brother took a different route.
  • He was willing to go to college, but mostly he just wanted to GO.
SOCIAL UPHEAVAL
  • The 60’s it was a crazy time to be launched into adult life, especially in the SF Bay Area. We heard stories about the Filmore Auditorium, the Avalon ballroom and the really loud concerts he’d attend.
  • It was in this season of life my dad seemed to develop a personality trait that was cause-driven.
  • He worked as a longshoreman at the Port of Oakland (until he could not stand the corruption of the Union)
  • He threw himself into the hippie lifestyle, even to the point of telling the draft board exactly what they could do with his draft card. He wasn’t being dramatic, and he was willing to go to prison over his conviction.  Right or wrong.
  • He served as a sergeant of arms at a black panther meeting with Hewey Newton.
  • His commitment to individual conscience was being formed
  • He was down for a good cause, and he was “All-In”.
  • He met my mom in the Bay Area and soon they were married on the verdant hills of Moraga, CA.  The groom wore a flowing purple cloak and the bride…she wore a white eyelet dress.
  • He took a trip North, finding his way to Alaska, spending some time on a commercial fishing boat and visiting friends there.
  • However, is growing appetite for adventure would create its own set of complications.  Something he had to manage his entire life, I’d say.  He really wanted to experience ‘all this life had to offer’.
  • My parents and my older brother spent some time living above the water on Cannery Row, in Monterey CA. When I say above the water, I mean literally…if they were to drop their breakfast it would land in the Pacific.  They later moved in with friends in Berkeley.
  • Right about then he made a decision of great import. He announced he was hitchhiking to Alaska by himself.  My mom had a different understanding of what marriage was supposed to be.  So, they headed different directions.
  • Sometime during this season, my dad’s journey brought him to beautiful Southern OR to visit his older brother, Eric, was who was living with his girlfriend in a remote mountain cabin.
 
COMMUNE
- It was there he met some loggers who spent their spare time seeking out hippies in the wood for the purpose of introducing them to the good news of Jesus Christ.  Logger Evangelists !?!?
  • Something in that message resonated with my dad and he began to spend more time with these people at their property in Azalea.
  • One night during a time of corporate prayer He had a powerful vision where he saw himself coming home to God’s family. The Lord also told him in a prophetic word that my mom would be coming back to him and that he’d have confirmation of this the next day.
  • So immediately he decided he’d log into Facebook to see what she’d been posting about…Remember the setting. Late 60’s, southern OR, still staying at a remote cabin in the woods.
  • But the next morning someone came rolling into camp with a message for him, delivered through the local grapevine and the one phone in that area. My mom was on her way back to him.
  • This is another trait of my dad’s life. He was never far from the miraculous.  I think He really enjoyed pushing into things to the point that only God could deliver the victory.
  • This experience and the return of my mom led him to bring her to what eventually became a Christian commune. A place where everybody shared their possessions for the good of all.
  • It was he place where they raised their family over the course of 20 years.  
  • The commune valued hard work. He worked in the construction business and eventually started a tree trimming business, first serving residential customers, but eventually focusing on serving power companies and clearing vast sections of power line right-of-way.
  • It was at the commune that he began to get a sense for who he was as a man and also as an entrepreneur. 
  • Eventually he outgrew that pond, or perhaps he sensed that we would outgrow the pond.  In either case we left for a new start.  With just a handful of possessions and a van, he started over at 40 years old.
 
BUSINESS PHASE
  • He borrowed money from his brother Eric for a house down payment.
  • By house, I mean a mobile home.  To be sure, it was an upgrade compared to where we lived at the commune.
-  Local banks wouldn’t lend to since he had no assets.  A customer and friend connected him to Chetco for a $40k loan to buy the very business he had built at the commune.
  • He took a break from “Churchy” stuff for a few years. Something he was prone to do from time to time usually after someone disappointed him.  Because he lived all-in…sometimes his disappointments were hard to process.  These were the tides of his Faith journey.  But those, tides always brought him back to Jesus and the simplicity of the gospel.
  • He decided to venture into construction rather than trees. Mostly out of deference to his sons, I believe.  Cutting trees is really tough.
  • Shortly after that decision, he got a fortuitous call. Would he like to build a cellular site?  Sure!  What is it?  
  • Over the next decade he built business from a pick-up truck up to the point where he had offices and crews all over the western states.
  • The projects were intensely scheduled and could range from a SF rooftop to mountain tops in Oregon, CA and all of the Hawaiian Islands.
  • He got to play with helicopters, and massive bulldozers, and cranes. He was in hog heaven and his entrepreneurial juices were raging.
 - During a tough financial pinch, he called me to share how the Lord had spoken to him again. “Knowing what to do with money will be more difficult than getting the money”.
-  In 1997 through another miraculous turn, the man from Glide was invited on a US Trade Mission, with Secretary of Commerce Bill Daley.  He traveled for several weeks with executives of billion-dollar companies, met with Presidents of countries. He loved to tell the story of motorcades and being treated like royalty throughout Brazil, Argentina, and Chile.  They were shocked in Brazil when they were pushed aside like mere commoners, only to later discover it was the Brazilian national soccer team boarding the plan.
- In 1998 he sold the business and entered into yet another chapter of life.
ADVENTUROUS GRANDPA
  • For him business was an adventure.  So…it should come as no surprise that he did not retire, though he easily could have from a financial perspective.
  • Buying land in far off places like Montana and Costa Rica was something he enjoyed because he could combine his love of new places and adventure with his love of taking on projects.
  • He chartered fishing trips for family and friends. He bought horses and became my mom’s stable boy…as he like to put it.
- He named the streets of his development in Winston after some of his grandkids. Wil Way, Danielle Drive, and Ryan Road.
- He was an optimist.  He tended to believe the best about projects and about people. He would often remind us that he never met a con man he didn’t like.
  • The problem for him was that his projects kept getting in the way of his adventures.
  • Development land has its ups and also its downs. Over the last decade his development lands were down.  Rather than cry over spilt milk, in the last few years he fired up another tree business, tackling projects along I-5 and Hwy 42.  In his late 60’s he didn’t relish working again, but he simply wasn’t going to sit around and complain.  He was a man of action, and I will always admire that.
  • Of course, in his last business venture he met a whole cast of characters that he was able to influence. Somewhere along the line he became an intentional dad.  Not just to me and my brothers, or our wives and kids…but to anyone he came into contact with.
 
Today, you’re going to hear from many people who will fill in many of the gaps in this story I just told.  I’m going to close these remarks by highlighting a single character trait that, for me, defines my dad the best. 
I will always remember that my dad was courageous.
He had the courage to stand up.
  • to stand up for himself when he didn’t agree with the program.
  • to stand up for others when they needed his protection
  • to stand alone. He would not look the other way and pretend he didn’t notice an injustice.
Courageous in his faith.
Two scripture that were often on the lips of my dad.
Matt 10:32
- “Therefore whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven.
He took this verse literally.  He was unashamed, even if it made him look like a rube.
 
John 10:10.
  • “I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”
This verse highlights the active part of my dad’s relationship with Jesus.  He knew Jesus was the source of all that is good and that despite all of the places he could seek for hope or fulfillment, the highest fulfillment came from walking inside the purposes God by walking with Christ.
Courageous in his relationships.
- He was an intentional mentor.
If he liked you, he’d encourage you.  If he really like you, he’d call you out on something, not to make you feel bad, but to call you to your best self.  He would not look the other way and pretend he didn’t notice.  He would take action to reach into people’s life. You’re going to hear a lot about that today.
 
  • And finally, He had the courage to be real, to be authentic.
Each of us had a unique relationship with my dad. Yours doesn’t take from mine and mine doesn’t take from yours.  We both get memories to carry with us.  In some ways my dad and I also operated as colleagues.  He was launching from a commune about the time I was launching from high school.  Many business growth and life lessons were experienced together.  Consequently, he didn’t bother holding a lot back from me.  Nor did I feel I could only show him my best parts.  He was my best friend.
 
One of the things you may recall from my earlier remarks about his childhood was the absence of felt love from his father.  My dad and I had a chance to make one last trip to Costa Rica in January.  Over 10 days we reconnected with many of his business associates and projects across the country.  They would come when he requested, with tears in their eyes, knowing it would likely be the last time they would see Don Marcos.  On this trip I was an observer of the kind of impact he had wherever he went.  I was also tour guide and care giver.  It wasn’t an easy trip, but it was precious.  People who are suffering with a terminal disease can vacillate between completely dependent and a slightly hostile…and quickly.  Several times on the trip he’d sense I was getting offended and he’d say “you’re mad at me aren’t you”.  I’d start to deny it but he’d say…”Ah come here…I love you my Seth”.  He always wanted to make sure I knew my father loved me.
 
I helped him settle into bed one night on our trip.  We were chatting about life and he shared with me how he had struggled over the years with the idea of grace and with receiving the Father’s love.   We prayed together and shared our love for each other. It was beautiful.
 
I was with him in the oncologist office the day he and my mom decided they weren’t going to do any more chemotherapy.  He cried in a way I’d never seen him cry before.  He didn’t cry because of pain, or despair.  He cried as he shared with the doctor and us how amazed he was that his Heavenly Father was revealing His love to him in a personal way.
 
Later, you're going to hear a powerful video he recorded right after he was diagnosed with cancer.  I know the backstory leading up to the video being recorded, but I wasn’t sure of the intended audience.  Personally, I think he recorded it for us, for this day.
 
As we reflect on my dad’s life there are many storylines.  I hope you will see the see the story of a boy reaching out for the love of a father.  As his story unfolds we learn not only did he find that Fatherly love, he lived his life giving that Father’s love away to us, and to people we may never meet this side of eternity

Clare Simpson rode away from us and into the sunset on the morning of November 3, 2015, following a short battle with metastatic melanoma.Clare was born in Oakland, California on February 17, 1947, to Henrix and Ruth Simpson. She attended Oakland public schools and graduated from Skyline High School. Following high school, she attended Chico State College, graduating with a Bachelor's degree in Fine Arts in 1968.Clare worked for several years in the San Francisco Bay Area radio broadcast industry, but she had practically grown up on skis, and her love of skiing prompted her to move to Lake Tahoe and start her own business. She became an independent sales representative for several winter sports equipment companies. She was active and successful in her business, and was a member of the Western Winter Sports Representatives Association for thirty years. She resided in South Lake Tahoe for thirteen years, moving to Reno, Nevada in 1989. This move allowed her to pursue her other favorite avocation, golf. She became an avid golfer, joining Hidden Valley Country Club in 1990 and was very active in the Ladies Golf Section, including serving a year as Captain in 1999. She loved the game and treasured her "4 holes-in-one."Clare had many other varied interests. She loved traveling the world, enjoyed horseback riding, and looked forward each year to riding in the Reno Rodeo Cattle Drive. Clare was a devoted San Francisco Giants fan, and never missed a game if at all possible. She not only enjoyed entertaining and being together with close friends, but also cooking and serving food to the homeless at Tent City on Record Street in Reno. She has requested that there be no formal memorial service for her, but donations to the St. Vincent's Food Pantry, or other food pantry of your choice, to feed the homeless would be welcome and appreciated.Clare lived her life to the fullest, and was a woman of intense convictions, passion, and compassion. No one who knew her well would describe her in any other way. She reached the "End of the Trail" with dignity, no regrets, and many good and true friends.

I am so sorry to hear of Clare's passing.  I first met her at Montera Jr. High as well.  She always met everything with great enthusiasm.  I especially remember how she could solidly hit a baseball over the outfielder's heads.  So glad I got to see her at the reunion.  She did a great job with the decorations.  Thank you for sharing your enthusiasm with those less fortunate than yourself.

I was sorry to hear of Clare's passing.  I first met her at Montera Jr. High.  She was such a lively, great personality, and it was very nice to renew acquaintances with here at the 50th reunion.  Bill
 

John Lawrence Janowski

April 17th, 1946 - June 12th, 2015

A few notes about my best friend John Janowski So when I was 10 years old, I would ride my bicycle down 77th Ave in East Oakland and a damn dog would always come out from this house and chase me down the street trying to bite me. I had to ride real fast and keep my legs up. That dog chased every car too. In the summer of 1958, when I was 12, I was walking home from Arroyo Viejo Park and I saw this kid climbing a 20 foot cyclone fence. Why was that kid climbing that cyclone fence? Because a bunch of boys had dared him that he couldn’t do it. That was when I first met John Janowski. I thought that anyone that could climb that fence had to be pretty cool. We had lived on the same block for 6 years and never met before because the dividing line for the grammar schools was the bisecting street (Krause) between our houses. John went to Markham and I went to Webster. But we were both starting Frick Jr High together in the fall. That first meeting started a lifelong friendship. It seems like we played (depending on season) basketball, football or baseball constantly together. John had a basketball hoop on the garage at the house on 77th and we were always playing one-on-one basketball or catch with a baseball or football in the driveway. Around 1961, both of our parents bought houses in the Oakland hills near each other so we continued our friendship through high school. Since John didn’t own a car and I did, I was always driving him somewhere. I usually drove him to school every day. Occasionally, when we cut school, we would sneak onto Chabot Golf Course and play a little golf or go to Berkeley and play pool at Kips. There was a sign on the wall at Kips Pool Hall that said, “If you flunk out of school, at least you will have a job.” Hmmmmm. In 1960, my mother died and my father remarried and he and my stepmother became functioning alcoholics. Somehow, John’s mother seemed to know that things weren’t right at my house so she would invite me to dinner at least once or more per week. John was more than a friend, he was like a brother and I was always thankful that his mother and father were so nice to me. Because of my home life, high school was not a fun time for me but having John as my best friend helped me through those times. In 1965, I was in the Merchant Marine working on a ship that was bringing troops and supplies to Vietnam. During one of my trips to Vietnam, a draft notice was sent to my house, but since I was on a ship at sea and away from home, I did not know I was drafted until I came home and found out I was going into the Army in two days. Normally, they gave you 30 days or more notice. I called John and his mother answered and said he had the same date on his draft notice (April 14, 1966). She said John went to SF with some friends from high school and they all joined the Marines together and he went to boot camp last week. I always felt that had I been home when the notice came, I would have joined the Marines with John and the other guys. Oh…… that damn barking dog? Yep, it turns out it was Janowski’s. I'm going to miss you brother. John passed away June 12th.

I've been going through Al's email and came across the Skyline notes. Wanted to let you know that Al died on January 11 after a 2 1/2 year battle with prostate cancer. His cancer was attributed to his service in Vietnam where he was exposed to Agent Orange.

From Stan Lore on August 12th, 2019
Al and I went to the same schools beginning with Montclair Elementary through Skyline.   Same Cub and Boy Scout dens.  Played in the band together as trumpeters.  I was waiting to head to Marine Corps bootcamp in late 1966 when Al was home on leave after completing Marine Corps bootcamp.   We spent a long evening talking.  I was interested in anything he could tell me to make bootcamp easier for me.  It turns out nothing can make it easier except being in good physical condition. . He asked if I wanted to go for a run the next morning.  I was in good condition and said yes.  We met at Montclair branch of the Oakland public library.   He then told me we were going to run down to Telegraph and Channing way to pickup a newspaper and then run back.  We did.  I guess it is 10 miles or so.  He wasn't breathing hard.  Remarkable endurance.  The next time I saw Al was in Khe Sanh, Vietnam in 68.  He'd been there awhile and I was just 30 days in country and still scared.  He was a chaplain's assistant, spending much time at the base and station talking with injured and dying Marines. We spent a day together and then was on my way out, when he said to me " you will be fine ".I remembered those words.  Still see him standing next to me saying them.  He was a good friend and an example as a human being to follow.   So many memories.
 

Leonard Jay Neft

- - 2015

MIDDLETOWN -- Friends and family are mourning the loss of Leonard Neft, a former San Jose Mercury News reporter and obituary writer who on Thursday was identified as the third victim of the Valley Fire tearing through vast stretches of Northern California.
Authorities in Lake County say they discovered what they presume is Neft's body based on the location and evidence found nearby. His daughter said he was found about a quarter-mile from his burnt-out 2004 Honda Civic. He was apparently trying to flee on Saturday as the fire ravaged his home in Anderson Springs.
Neft, 69, had been missing since Saturday night, after relatives implored him by phone to abandon his home of 20 years.

"I'd check on him every few minutes," his wife, Adela Neft, said Tuesday. "He loaded up the car, and as it got later in the day, I kept telling him you need to go now!"
The couple married after meeting at the Mercury News, where he worked as a night reporter and she worked as a clerk. The two had been living separately in recent years but remained in contact.
After leaving the newspaper in 1985, he worked as a community news reporter at the Lake County Record-Bee from 1988 through 1995, and had been retired and living alone in recent years in Anderson Springs.
On Wednesday night, Neft's wife Adela, 56, and daughter Joslyn, 26, got their own dreaded phone call -- from a deputy sheriff informing them of the discovery.
"He was a very outgoing person," Joslyn Neft said, struggling amid tears to articulate her father's legacy. Indeed, he came to the office as a ponytailed hippie, but "a gentleman in sandals," one former colleague remembered. "People who knew him know how wonderful he was," Joslyn said, "and how weird he was."
Both Joslyn and her mother clung to each other Thursday, holed up in a Calistoga hotel with financial help from friends and Neft's family in Sacramento. They await the Friday arrival of Lorelei, 20, Neft's younger daughter who is returning from studying abroad in Costa Rica. The still-raging wildfires have torn through the Neft family, consuming Leonard's home as well as the home of his brother David and wife Ellen Neft, who both safely evacuated.
"I'm still trying not to cry," said Khalida Wukawitz, who works in the deli of Store 24, a Middletown gas station that Neft and his brother used to own.
He was extremely neat and tidy, always sweeping the parking lot and keeping everything in its place inside, she said.
"That was his way of making the world beautiful, always cleaning," said Wukawitz, who is half Plestinian and half Jewish.
Neft was Jewish, she said, and they developed a very close friendship through the years.
"He said if we can find 10,000 people like you and me, we would end the war in the Middle East," she said.
Neft and his brother, David, sold the gas station about 10 years ago and Neft retreated to his home in the woods.
"He decided society wasn't where he wanted to be all the time," she said. "He wanted to be alone, away from everybody in his beautiful home."
They saw each other two weeks ago at the deli. She made him a falafel sandwich.
"He loves life," she said. "He's the most beautiful man on planet earth. I'm going to miss his smile."
At the Mercury News, staffers are both covering the fire and remembering one of its victims. They recalled fondly their oddball but lovable former colleague who connected deeply with families in mourning as he performed one of a journalist's toughest jobs -- calling relatives to get quotes for an obituary. He once said in a 1983 article in the Mercury News' Sunday magazine that obits shouldn't be reserved for famous people.
"I feel I can do an obit on a housewife who's never done anything," Neft said in the article. "It's a challenge to find out what people did that was interesting in their lives."
Neft was a nonconformist who soaked up music and books on spirituality and enlightenment; a favorite was "The Way of the Peaceful Warrior," by Dan Millman.
A well-sourced reporter who worked at the paper from 1969 to 1985, Neft earned the rare distinction as a staff writer who refused to attach his byline to stories -- something that would be unheard of today. The insistence appears to be a mix of humility and a gotcha to editors he is said to have had gripes with. He was also a nonconformist with long hair who faced off regularly, and congenially, with buttoned-up buzz-cut law enforcement types, colleagues recalled.
Obsessed with his police scanner, Neft had a memorable send-off when he left the Mercury News, attended by then-Police Chief Joe McNamara and members of the Lima Family mortuary business.
"He wore threadbare clothes, like a cotton shirt you could see right through," said Mercury News librarian Diana Stickler, who first met Neft working the night shift. "He was not into material stuff at all -- a generally lovely guy."
Bay Area News Group Managing Editor/Content Bert Robinson recalled his early days as a cub reporter working alongside Neft, and the lessons he learned from him.
"You could hear Leonard from anywhere in the newsroom," Robinson said, "as he patiently, sensitively interviewed people to write obits. He understood what a vulnerable position it is to be the friend or family of an obit subject, and always explained to them what they could expect from him, from the paper and from the article he would write.
"What I learned from that is that the average person really doesn't understand what journalists do, and it's an incredible gift to them to have a guy like Leonard explain it before they experience the interview, or pick up the newspaper and see their name."

From David Anton on October 27th, 2016
Nick was a friend of mine, and I am sorry he passed before his time.  He loved having grown up in Oakland and told me many a story of his time at Skyline and those years, especially about playing baseball.
In the years he worked, he made some decisions that took guts and were big personal risks.  When large California banks were not treating customers right who trusted them Nick blew the whistle, was fired for it, and helped bring class actions to benefit those customers that were successful.
Nick loved sports, and he and I together purchased Raider PSL seats when they returned to Oakland (not the best of $ spent), but he loved the A's and Raiders.
Nick's true love was his daughter Grey.  In Grey's teenage years things were tough being apart from Grey due to a marriage that broke up.  Nick looked forward to his time with Grey, and was so proud of her as she grew into a woman.  Nick was so proud of Grey as she progressed through college, her time abroad, and tacking teaching in economically stressed schools.
Cancer got to Nick far too soon, and I and others will miss him.

His friend, David

Obituary

Wiliiam Jerome Turpin October 23, 1945 - October 14, 2013 It is with profound sadness we inform you of the passing of an honorable man. After a heroic struggle with a lengthy illness, Will drew his last breaths surrounded by loved ones. He was born in Oakland, Ca. to Cecil and Ida (Shuck) Turpin and spent his youth in the Bay area. Called to duty at 19 years of age, William accepted the draft. He was in active service in the United States Army Infantry in Vietnam until his honorable discharge as a seasoned combat veteran two years later, attaining the rank of sergeant and several military decorations. Soon after, he immigrated to Canada and spent his remaining years criss-crossing the border for both work and family reasons, between Vancouver, B.C. and Point Roberts, Wa. He was a long-time, active member of the Teamsters Local Union No. 31 and worked as both a long-haul and local driver for Marpole Transport out of Delta, B.C. for many years. Left to mourn are his wife, Andrea Lang; son, Samuel Turpin (Dana); daughter, Dawn Morey (Steve); grandchildren: Britni, Ruby, Owen, Ashley, Rebecca, Nicholas and Kristopher and great-grandson, Sawyer. Will was pre-deceased recently by his brother, Michael Turpin of Custer, Wa. As a result, his wife, Catherine, and the entire family share a double loss. Will was a man of great character - strong but kind, generous and wise. He was courageous and true. Will fought for and believed in personal freedom above all else all his life. And, as a cousin so aptly put it, "He was one of the 'coolest' people we ever knew." He will be so missed! On-line viewing of this obituary can be located at www.amherstcremation.com/memorials.

Malcolm Stuart Morrison June 11, 1947 - Aug. 9, 2013 Resident of San Francisco Malcolm Stuart Morrison, a genuine San Francisco architect, a decent and conservative man, and a beloved brother and friend to many, passed away on Friday, Aug. 9th, at the age of 66. Son of Dr. John G. and Mary Lou Morrison, he was reared in a loving home in the hills of Oakland, attended Skyline High School, and learned his profession at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. Immediately after graduation, Mac began his career as a draftsman with the SF architecture firm of Lanier (Al) and Sherrill (Paul) Architects and Planners, and within three years became a named partner and lifelong friend of these two men and their families. Mac designed hundreds of residential and commercial structures around the Bay Area and Northern California. Architecture was his passion and attention to detail, function, and creative design were his handicraft. His work added significant value for his clients, many of whom blessed him with their repeat business over the years. Besides his work Mac loved golf, NFL football (49'ers), and was a family dominoes champion. One of six brothers he was preceded in death by brothers John K., Randolph C., and Douglas G. Morrison. He is survived by brothers Mark J. (Ginny) of Jacksonville, Florida, and Timothy B. Morrison of Richmond, California. His nieces and nephews, Emily Morrison Austin (Michael), John S. (Kristy), Samuel A., Christopher S. (Miran), and Scott A. Morrison (Jodi) loved him dearly and treasured his dry humor and friendship with "Uncle Mac". We know he is in good hands, likely assisting the Father of All to improve "space" for all the saints who have passed. In lieu of flowers the family asks that support be given to The Salvation Army in Malcolm's memory.

From Marion "Guy" Greenlee on June 24th, 2014
Malcolm (Mac) was one of my room mates while we were both attending Cal Poly in the 60's.  I lost track of him after college - a fact that I will always regret.  I learned of his passing while searching the web to find him so I could get in touch and "catch-up." The obituary included above tells me he didn't change much after college.  He was always the one with a cool head and a dry wit that was magnetic.  I have missed his friendship for years and was foolish for not acting on my desire to contact him sooner.  I pray you are in paradice Mac, and I hope they have a nice golf course or two for both of us there.  Guy

July 27th, 1946 - September 21st, 2010

Ken was my wonderful husband for 16 years.
How I wish it could have much,much longer.  We were more than husband and wife we were each other's best friend.  He had a reassuring paternal side and he always told me everything will be OK. I miss him so very much.  We truly completed each other and I am now only half of what I was when we were together.  Hopefully one day science will discover a method for early detection of pancreatic cancer. It deprived Ken of the long life he so deserved. He leaves behind myself, son Scott and my children Chris and Beth.

He will be missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him.
Posted by: Nancy Feldstein - Foster City, CA - Wife Nov 26, 2010
 
I have so many memories of Ken, but a few in particular concern our dog, Copper. Ken convinced me to get this dog after my Mom passed in 1993 as my daughter was begging for a beagle puppy. So, we got the dog.

Well, Copper was a handful and Ken and I shared very differing views on whether or not Copper should be able to lick the cast iron skillets after the meal was over (nothing ever left in those skillets but a few crumbs). So one day, I put the skillet down. Ken immediately told me "pick up that skillet and put it in sink - I don't want dog germs on it!" Of course the skillet was ALWAYS washed anyway - Well, I just smiled and let the dog keep licking away at a few meatloaf crumbs. Ken was totally flummoxed by the situation and for one of the few times in his life, couldn't figure out what to say. After that Ken finally accepted the fact the dog could lick the skillet, but when Copper started gaining a few pounds, he would look at the dog very seriously and say "Copper, you've let yourself go" - It was so funny my son Chris had a hard time trying not to laugh! We have many wonderful late night walks with our Copper - he was quite a dog.

Obituary

Barbara “Bobby” Coleman
Frey of Piedmont passed
away peacefully, surrounded
by family and friends, on
September 28 after a lengthy
and courageous battle with
breast cancer.
An Oakland native, Frey
lived amidst vibrant Mills
women all of her 61 years. Her
family included grandmother
Florence Bloch Feldman
’21; cousins Emilie Bloch
Schwabacher ’25, Theresa
Loewy Breyer ’37, Hazel-Clair
Loewy Dwoskin ’43, and Elise
Feldman Rosenfeld ’47; and
sister Elinor Coleman ’71.
As a child, Bobby attended
the Mills College Children’s
School, as did her daughters
Allison and Charlotte. She
married David Lee Frey Jr. in
the Mills Chapel in 1969.
Bobby dedicated her cre-
ativity and positive outlook
to Mills. Over the years,
she served on the Board of
Governors of the Alumnae
Association of Mills College
(AAMC), chaired the AAMC
Annual Fund, and started
the annual fund for the
Children’s School. Her family
endowed the Florence Bloch
Feldman Scholarship at Mills
in honor of her grandmother.
Bobby will be missed deeply
by the Class of ’68. She was
involved in organizing every
five-year Reunion and worked
as class agent for many years.
Laurel Burden ’68 says,
“All of us will miss this quiet,
determined person. She has
been a force in my life from
the first day in Olney. We
have been through much in
the last 43 years, both won-
derful and not so wonderful,
but our trip to Paris for our
60th birthday celebration was
what it is all about: friendship
and love. That we will carry
with us forever.” Patti Abelov
Demoff ’68 adds, “Bobby was
courageous, took pleasure in
little things, and lived every
moment that she had to the
fullest.”
Bobby had a passion for
cooking, studying locally with
Narsai David and Jack Lirio
in the 1970s. She traveled
extensively and as recently as
summer 2007, when she vis-
ited Santa Fe with Mills pals.
Music, always a part of her
life, was the focus of several
trips. Other passions included
gardening, knitting, and
spending time at her home in
Tahoe.
Barbara is mourned by her
husband, David; daughter,
Allison; parents, Joan and
Clarence Coleman; sister,
Elinor; and an extended fam-
ily of Mills friends. She was
predeceased by her daughter
Charlotte. Gifts to Mills in
memory of Barbara will sup-
port the Children’s School.

From Dianne (aka Dhyanis) Carniglia on June 2nd, 2014
Bill asked me to the Senior Ball - out of the blue, since he was a "jock" (pitching baseball his passion) and very far from my studious world. So I retracted my promise to go with Bob Falaschi (good girl goes rogue) and went to slow dance with this intriguing stranger. That led to a hot summer romance in the mountains (Stanislaus) where I was the lifeguard at local pool. He was tender, with an extremely dry humor which kept me on my toes. We drifted apart when I attended UCSB and he stayed home at Hayward State. Caught up again in the 70's - still felt the spark. He had been in the Minor Leagues and bought a nice spread in Occidental, where he married Victoria and had 3 children. When they divorced we got together again for a few months, but he seemed depressed and self-medicating with alcohol. He eventually took his eldest son to live in the mountains and died in a car accident. His sister Diane called to tell me and said that I had always been a true love of his - bless you Billy!

Ronald Wood

September 22nd, 1946 - February 26th, 1994

Ron was 47 years old in 1994 when he died of esophagus cancer due to Agent Orange when he was in Vietnam.  It took all those years to slowly kill him.  He was a Marine and had a Bronze Star.  The government came by his bedside a week before he died and connected the dots.  His children were compensated for this terrible tragedy.  Ron was a Senior Probation Officer in Carson City and he was the most popular officer because he cared so much for the boys and he had the largest case load of boys in Carso City, Reno, Virginia City and Dayton, Nevada.  He was offered a job to be the Master of the Courts but turned it down because he didn't want to lose contact with the boys he was involved with.  Ron's dream was to build a re-hab center for the juvenile delinquents.  So after his death they were able to collect enough money to start building the re-hab center and there is a sign in front of the Govenor's Mansion in Carson City that says "In Honor of Ronald Wood Rehabilitation Center Carson City, Nevada."  They honor my brother Ron every year for what he had done for those boys.  I had the privilege to meet some of these boys after they became men and they all said "If it wasn't for Ron Wood they would be back in prison or dead.  He changed their lives."  Even when I was working here in Livermore a woman I was talking to, her son knew Ron and he was her son's Probation Officer and she said "If it wasn't for Ron he would be back in proson or dead."  Ron lived a productive life and at his funeral there was standing room only.  Young men were coming up to me and telling me about the wonderful person he was in their lives.  I miss my brother so much and just writing this has brought back good memories of him and lots of tears.  They use to call him the "Gentle Giant."  He left behind a beautiful wife Valarie Wood and their two children Benjamin and Savannah.  He also has a son from his first marriage named Deron and he has three children.  Ron died in February 1994.  We all miss him terribly.  Ron came from a large family.  He was the second born of eight children.

From John Close on July 29th, 2014
I liked Tom. Such a sports enthusiast! And he liked to sing, too. I remember him as a positive, enthusiastic, friendly kid. I'm sorry he's gone.
 
From Sally Holmes Voyles on July 24th, 2014
My brother Phil and I grew up with Tom (then Tommy) Muir, and our families were friends since the day in second grade when Tom was dashing back and forth between my house and his house, reporting on the number of puppies our Lab was having.  His dad thought he must be lying when he said there were twelve, and stopped by to check it out.  There were twelve, and his dad was flabbergasted!

When Tom went to Vietnam, both my dad and his told him, "never volunteer for anything."
When he came back, he said the only time he did volunteer, in the field, he came back from his assignment to see a big crater right where he'd been. So much for that advice.

We lost touch after his mom passed, but I still think about Tom and the puppies sometimes.
Last I heard he was living in Medford, OR with his wife Darcy and his kids, but that was a LONG time ago.
