Asher Rubin A retired California Deputy Attorney General and a devoted husband and father, died peacefully at his home in Marin County on September 30, 2010. Asher was born in Atlantic City, on November 9, 1936, to Sophie and Jacob Rubin. He later moved to the town of Liberty, in New York's Catskill Mountains, where he went to high school and honed his sense of humor while working for six summers as a busboy at the famed Grossinger's resort hotel. Asher graduated from Columbia University in 1958 and Harvard Law School in 1961. After graduation, he clerked for Justice Thomas P. White of the California Supreme Court. He joined the office of Attorney General Stanley Mosk in 1963, where he remained until 2001, except for a brief interlude in the Office of the General Counsel of the Peace Corps and on the public relations staff of The Weizmann Institute in Israel. As a Deputy Attorney General, Asher represented various officials and agencies in appellate and trial litigation involving many of the important political and social issues confronting California. He appeared before the US Supreme Court in two cases, Honig v. Doe and California Human Resources Dept. v. Java, which settled significant disputes regarding special education and unemployment insurance. He appeared before the California Supreme Court in controversial cases that affected reproductive rights, unemployment insurance, industrial safety, and health care benefits. Asher was known for his sense of humor and could not restrain himself, even in court. When he asked a federal judge for extra time to file his brief when George Deukmejian was Attorney General, the judge was reluctant, commenting: "What do you people in the Attorney General's Office do all day?" Asher replied: "Well, we spend most of our time trying to spell Deukmejian." The judge granted him a 45 day extension. Asher was active beyond his professional life. He was a board member of Image for Success, a member of the Tiburon Theater Troupe, a past president of the Tiburon Peninsula Club, a feature writer for the Nob Hill Gazette, and past chairman of the Tiburon Art Festival. The center of Asher's life was his family. He is survived by his wife Diane and their two children, Jacob and Shaina, as well as his four brothers, Emanuel, Mordecai, Joseph and Abba. Family and friends are invited to a celebration of his life on Sunday at 1:00 PM at Jason's at 300 Drakes Landing Rd. in Greenbrae.

Cassinova Migual "Cass" Jackson

Cass was one of my favorite brothers. He was my inspiration to start singing. He made me laugh occasionally and he had the best sprit anyone could ever have. I remember how he wouldn't eat meat and could never hurt a fly. He was always as skinny as me, surprisingly, and he always would have a joke or a story to tell. Cass spoke his thoughts through his songs which I used to love to hear, he loved me and everyone. He even sang to the homeless. He made me so much more than I am. I still am so sad that he is gone, but I remember he once told me if he ever died not to cry, but to have a good time, because he wanted everyone to remember him with happy thoughts. I will miss him and his soul being with me. But I know he is stuck in my heart and in my memories even if he doesn't want to be there, he is. I love him and he will be missed., Destiny his little sister., Cassinova Migual Jackson, June 3, 1987 -, September 22, 2010, He is survived by: his mother, Albertine Starr Lee.

Beginning with a SCCA drivers' school in the mid-60s and a Porsche Speedster in the Detroit area, he raced with great success for many years in a variety of fast and unique cars and off-road motorcycles. In the process he developed deep and long friendships with fellow racers and his always loyal and dedicated pit crews.

His cars were not only fast, but well-restored, sometimes with the help of his brother David, and won both Concours d'Elegance awards and racing trophies. Jim was an enthusiastic skier, wind-surfer, water skier, and an excellent sailor in his boat on the San Francisco Bay., An avid traveler and reader, Jim traveled much of the world, and was knowledgeable on many subjects. He loved good conversation, interesting, funny stories, and was a bit of a raconteur himself.

Jeanne Albers Rennell

Jeanne was born in the Lakewood suburb of Cleveland, in 1944, to Lawrence and Janet Albers. Her father was a brilliant industrialist and co-founder of the Lakewood Country Club. Her mother was a lady of impeccable education., Jeanne was educated at the St. Augustine Academy, in Cleveland, and at Marymount College in Tarrytown, New York. She spent her junior year abroad; she sailed to England on the Queen Mary and attended Queen Mary College in London., Jeanne had a passion for writing. She was the editor of her high school and college newspapers. As a 16 year old girl she wrote a remarkable historical paper on the D-Day Invasion. Stephen Ambrose later requested a copy for the D-Day Museum Archives in New Orleans; she was thrilled with his correspondence with her, and with his contribution of his works to her library. She was a published poet and also enjoyed a personal correspondence with Maya Angelou., Early in her career she was an editor of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. She had a proclivity for true crime investigation and had asked for anything on the crime desk, but in her generation there was a glass ceiling for women in publishing. She had been a Teen Fashion Queen at Higby's and a beauty queen at a Winter Carnival in Connecticut, so the powers that be made her a fashion editor instead. She got some satisfaction from trips to New York and meetings with the likes of Bill Blass and Calvin Klein, but she was bound for a life of adventure., First she bought a farm and tried living off the land; her results were modest, so whenever she needed money she sold five acres. Then she drove her Volkswagen convertible down the newly constructed highway into Baja Mexico Sur in the late 1970s, where she made friends with a local family in La Paz and, at their invitation, lived in their guest house for almost a year learning their language and culture. She then moved to Los Angeles to write screen plays, and ended up managing and ultimately owning a prominent court reporting agency., She met her one true love, John Rennell, in Westwood in 1982. She loved sailing with him on his schooner the Reliance, running charters in the Channel Islands for Island Packers. When they married, she left Santa Monica for Cambria, and then Ojai. She had a great fondness for her secluded home on Saddle Mountain and her cabin in the Idaho Rockies, with all the surrounding wild creatures., Her love and fascination with people, her pets and with nature and wildlife, was boundless. In recent years she had traded ocean safaris for excursions into the Baja in her 4WD RV. She was planning an exciting retirement at her ranch in northern Arizona, her Idaho cabin, and all of nature's wonders around and in between., Jeanne's greatest love was for the spiritual life. She believed the Gospels were intended as a handbook for her personal life's conduct; she was committed to perpetual acts of kindness to whomever she met. Her greatest joy was in supporting orphans from around the world, and building schools and hospitals in areas of great need., Recently she was very ill, and had a vision of her departed dog Sundance, coming to the River Jordan to wait for her morning and evening. She had also seen spirits coming up to her, and was told "they were angels coming for you, Darling, it's okay to follow them home." On the last day of summer, in the morning of the Harvest Moon, Jeanne died peacefully in her sleep. She had finally given up her battle with breast cancer and went home to be with the Lord. As she lay in her final repose, there was an amazingly radiant peace emanating from her countenance; it was like seeing an angel., She is survived by a loving family, many friends, and several pets, all of whom are now expressing their thanks for her personal and unique attentions. As great as our loss is, greater still is our joy and gratitude for her loving spirit, one that touched so many deeply., There will be a service for her at 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 2, at Ojai Presbyterian Church. Following that will be a reception and celebration of her life in the adjoining Stockham Hall., Donations to

Joe Morello

Joe Morello On September 3, 2010 Joe Morello passed from this life surrounded by his family. Having enjoyed 80 years of family, business, sports, and golf, Joe succumbed after a hard-fought battle with multiple myeloma. A gentleman, a man of integrity, honesty, kindness, and generosity, Joe is survived by the family of which he was so proud - his wife (Augie) of 58 years, his children and their spouses (Linda Morello and Javier Gomez, John and Heather Morello, Joe Morello and Trish Breslin), 4 grandchildren (Catherine, Hannah, Matteo, and Anna Morello), cousins and family, and his beloved dog, Tuffy. Joe, son of Maria and John Morello of Mill Valley, lived 77 years of his life in Marin County. He graduated from Park School and Tamalpais High School in Mill Valley, and he earned an AA from the College of Marin. A great athlete, Joe was co-captain of his schools' baseball teams and a member of the Jr. Seals. He was a co-founder of the Southern Marin Little League and he coached numerous Little League and C.Y.O. basketball teams. A dedicated fan of the 49ers (season ticket holder) and the Giants, Joe enjoyed both playing and watching sports. The day after Joe married Augie, IJ columnist Jim Gilmartin wrote "Tiburon third sacker Joe Morello didn't show up for his team's game yesterday. Joe was too busy - getting married. The new auxiliary third sacker is the former Augie Perry." And, Joe loved golf, playing several times every week and planning his calendar around his golf games. Joe's great passion was the business in which he co-partnered with the Canepa family - the Mill Valley Market. Both Jim and Bob Canepa were respected and beloved business partners and friends with whom he shared 35 years in business. As the produce buyer at the Mill Valley Market, Joe dedicated himself to bringing the freshest and best produce to his customers and in meeting their special wants and needs. He took pleasure in learning everything he could about fine foods and wines and sharing that with family, friends, and customers. No one could barbecue a steak or prepare a crab dip quite like Joe. At his 50th wedding anniversary, he remarked that he was "the luckiest man in the world" - he had had a business, a wife, and a family he loved. Joe was a member of numerous organizations (SIRS Branch 47, Italian Catholic Federation, Italian Athletic Club). He dedicated his time to his children's schools and to his parish. He enjoyed many friendships - other gentlemen who shared his love of sports, enjoyed his company, and supported him during these past two years of declining health. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him. Joe and his family wish to express their gratitude to the staff of the Greenbrae Care Center for their extraordinary and compassionate care. And, Joe held his physicians (Dr. Robert Van Herick and Dr. Bobbie Head) in the highest esteem. He valued and respected their care and treatment. Joe Morello was laid to rest in a private burial on Friday, September 10, 2010. Family and friends are invited to attend a celebratory service to be held on Saturday, October 9, beginning with a 10:00 AM Mass at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church, 3 Oakdale Ave., Mill Valley. Remembrances may be sent to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society or the charity of one's choice. In his memory, kiss your wife, hug your children, love your work, and eat a wonderful meal of fresh foods and fine wine.

John Barrowcliff Jr.

John Henry Barrowcliff, Jr. John Henry Barrowcliff, Jr. was born in Zion, Illinois, on October 12, 1923, and passed into Glory on September 23, 2010, at the age of 86. The only child of John and Mary Barrowcliff, John was blessed not only by these wonderful Christian parents but also by a large extended family that stayed in contact throughout their lives. His family moved to Spencer, Indiana, when he was 12 and soon thereafter he met the attractive girl next door, Phyllis Hoover, who he married in 1947. John was a 6'6" basketball star at Spencer High School and Butler University, where he played for the great coach Tony Hinkle. John was later honored by being inducted into both the Butler Hall of Fame and the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame. John served his country in the Coast Guard in both the North Atlantic and Pacific during World War II. After college, rather than pro basketball, he became a manager trainee for Goodyear, playing on their basketball team in the industrial league. John focused on warehousing and shipping and during his successful career he helped create and teach the integrated field of "distribution" and was a speaker for the American Management Association. John always had a smile and encouraging word, and gave great hugs. He was a very loving son, husband, father, grandfather and friend. His children will always be grateful for his love, faith, guidance and encouragement, and how he made family such a priority. He worked hard yet always took the time to support his children's interests. He and Phyllis lived in several states, longest in California, including 20 retirement years in Lompoc enjoying church and family activities, golfing and traveling before joining their daughter in Santa Barbara. John was a deacon and elder in Presbyterian Churches, where he and Phyl were always active. His faith in God was central to his life, and his generosity, kindness and integrity witnessed his gratitude for the grace and blessings he had received. Although he suffered from increasing dementia the last 15 years, the light of his love and faith continued to bless all around him. John is survived by Phyllis, his loving wife of 62 years, daughter Ellen Duke, son Brent (Debra), grandchildren Brent (Laurie), Brandon, Lynn (Brett), Beth, and Mark, and brother- and sister-in-law John and Louise Hoover. A celebration of John's life will be held at 11 am on Saturday, October 23, 2010, at El Montecito Presbyterian Church, 1455 East Valley Road, Montecito, CA 93108.

Judy Carolyn Russel McPartland

Judy Carolyn Russel McPartland, born March 18, 1952 to Lunolia and Jimmy Russel in White House, TN, died Sunday morning at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Nashville, TN, after a very long and courageous battle with a debilitating liver disease. Judy had been shuttled from her Laguna Niguel, CA home in August in a desperate attempt to obtain a much needed liver transplant. She handled the last many painful days of her battle with the utmost of dignity and the greatest of courage. Judy was an accomplished Radiation Therapy Technologist, trained in the profession at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, later working there treating cancer patients. Throughout her seemingly nomadic life as her family followed her husband's career moves around the U.S., Judy got to see much of the country and made many friends from coast to coast. She went on to compassionately serve many terminally ill cancer patients at Muskogee General Hospital in Muskogee, OK and Mission Hospital in Laguna Beach, CA. She was renowned for her expertise in the field and her kind and compassionate nature with her patients. Judy was a very intelligent, sweet and kind woman who loved to read and did so voraciously. She enjoyed swimming and loved to learn, dabbling in many various college level courses at her local Saddleback College in CA, and involving herself in many unique and interesting hobbies throughout her life. Most of all she loved to support her daughter's singing and academic efforts, traveling to Rome to see her sing for the Pope, and her son's love of music and interest in the motion picture industry, supporting his many musical endeavors over the years. She was the most wonderful mother, kind, caring, reflective and very supportive. Her children were her world and she will forever be remembered for her devotion to them! Judy is survived by her beloved children, daughter, Shane McPartland of Stockholm, Sweden and son, Jace McPartland of Laguna Niguel, CA, her former husband of 15 years and friend until the end, Harry McPartland, III, her trusted and loving sisters-in-law, Rebecca and Vicky Russel of Cross Plains, TN; brothers, Jimmy, Earl and Bruce Russel of Cross Plains, TN; and sisters, Janet Hosale and Denise McCullan of Hendersonville, TN.

Patricia Lydon Furlong Pat Furlong, of Belvedere, died September 25, 2010, after a period of declining health. A Belvedere resident for almost 50 years, Pat was born in Hollywood, California (a fact she always enjoyed), on September 18, 1925, to Thomas Nicholas and Agnes Gibbons Lydon. When she was five years old, her family moved to Sausalito, where she attended grade school at Mount Carmel Academy. Pat always felt that Sausalito was a wonderful place in which to grow up. Before the Golden Gate Bridge was built, she and her older brother, Tom Lydon, of whom she was particularly fond, would hike into the hills behind Sausalito, to the dairy at Silva's Ranch for a glass of milk, or to Tennessee Valley and the ocean. During her high school years, Pat took the train from Sausalito to Tamalpais High School in Mill Valley, where she sang in the a cappella group and appeared in some of the school's musicals. At Tam High, she also made some lifelong friends who still get together regularly for lunch. She graduated from Tam High in January of 1943. At 17, she took a job as a secretary in the Engineering Department at Marinship in Sausalito. She later worked as an executive secretary at Bechtel Corporation in San Francisco; for several years, she was the executive secretary for Mr. Stephen D. Bechtel, Sr., the company's president. She enjoyed working for Mr. Bechtel very much. When she was 21, she met Donald Furlong, a Naval officer and engineer, who would become her husband for 60 wonderful years. They married on March 24, 1950, at the United States Naval Academy, in Annapolis, MD, with her mother as her attendant, and they lived for several years in the Washington, D.C., area. With Don's encouragement, Pat attended George Washington University, graduating with a Bachelor's degree in English Literature. Together, Pat and Don followed his Naval career to London, where they especially enjoyed Don's diplomatic posting. In London, Mrs. Furlong developed an interest in English antiques, she and Don enjoyed several trips around Europe, and they were invited to Buckingham Palace where they were presented to Queen Elizabeth - an unforgettable experience. From London, the Navy took them to the New York Naval Shipyard, and Mrs. Furlong worked in Bechtel's New York office in Manhattan. After his New York tour ended, Don retired from the Navy. Pat and Don moved to San Francisco, and, in 1962, they bought their home in Belvedere. A short time later, they were delighted to start another phase of their lives - parenthood. Their son, Tom, was born in 1965, and their daughter, Patty, was born one year later. Pat was very involved in her children's schools; she particularly enjoyed teaching a Great Books course to 7th and 8th graders at St. Hilary's School. During this time, Pat was also active in The Marin Symphony Auxiliary and the Raccoons Fundraising Branch of Marin General Hospital. Pat is a past member of The Century Club and The Francisca Club in San Francisco. She and Don also enjoyed attending the San Francisco Opera regularly for many years. Pat and Don made many wonderful friends playing tennis at The Belvedere Tennis Club and golf at The Meadow Club. They are also long-time members of The San Francisco Yacht Club. Pat and Don shared a love of travel, taking many trips together to destinations including Europe, Greece, China, India, Russia and the Middle East. Regular family trips to La Quinta, The Cloister at Sea Island, including a family trip to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary, and The Mauna Kea Beach Hotel, were Pat's particular favorites. Pat was predeceased by her sister, Jane Ann Parisian, and by her brother, Thomas N. Lydon, who, at the age of 20, was killed in combat in France just before the end of World War II. Pat will be remembered as an independent, intelligent, and fun-loving lady, and she will be greatly missed by her family and many friends. She is survived by her husband Don; her son, Tom Furlong, and his wife, Elizabeth Gard, of Pleasanton; her daughter, Patty Young, and her husband, Dave Young, of Belvedere; her five grandchildren, Paige and Katherine Furlong, and Tommy, Sarah and Jim Young; and seven nieces and nephews.

Ronald Frank Antonioli August 10, 1929-September 18, 2010 In Memory of a Good Man Ronald Antonioli passed away on Saturday with his family by his side. He suffered a cerebral hemorrhage after a sudden fall in his Novato home, on September 18. Son of the late Anna and Frank Antonioli, and brother to Robert Antonioli who passed away in 2007, Ron was raised in a Yugoslav-Californian family that extended from the Bay Area to the Central Valley. Growing up in San Francisco and Marin County, he attended Grant Primary, Lowell High School, and the College of Marin while working for his father's construction company in San Rafael. An accomplished builder with a keen sense of detail and strong drive, in the 1950s he formed his own independent company, Ronald Antonioli, Inc., and built more than 140 commercial structures in Marin County. As observed by George Wagner, Ron was a pioneer in the use of concrete tilt-up building technology, a process that involves pouring concrete building walls in frames atop the concrete floor, and when dried, tilting up the frames by crane and setting the walls in place. Ron was one of the leading contractor/developers for Northgate Business Park, Hamilton Industrial Park, and Bel Marin Keys Business Park. His active construction and development company was responsible for many local landmarks, such as the Handi-Kup building, the Tiburon Lodge, the Guide Dogs for the Blind campus, the China Cabin, and the Triple A Building. He developed many apartment complexes and shopping centers in Marin and throughout the Bay Area, but always maintained his Marin County base. Ron was passionate about the arts. According to his long-standing friend since their early childhood, William Knorp, Ron was a consummate pianist who found special pleasure in playing and in listening to others play. Many concerts were performed at his home throughout the years. These included more than a decade of support for the San Domenico School Music Conservatory and Virtuoso Program, and that program's chamber concerts, which, according to Faith France and Hugo Rinaldi, impacted the lives and careers of brilliant young artists at a critical point in their professional development. He also hosted performances by the College of Marin Choir, the Thursday Musical Program, and the Concerts Grand series. Terry McNeill remembers Ron's active interest in AMICA, the club that restored and played mechanical pianos such as Welte, Artreo-Angeles, Hupfeld and Ampico. He also recalls Ron's hosting of musicales, attended on some occasions by the famed Hungarian pianist, Ervin Nyiregyhazi, and later by the virtuoso Jorge Bolet. Ron's other interests included the collection of antiques and works of art. He was an aficionado of 17th and 18th century French and Italian art and antiques, which he patronized at home and studied in their contexts abroad, especially in Rome, Paris and St. Petersburg. If his interest in art was an expression of his keen artistic sensibility, his love of fine and exemplary antique furniture originated in his profound appreciation and understanding of the superior craftsmanship required for their production, doubtless based on his own work experience. Examples of his passion for fine craftsmanship were the frequent revisions and esthetic refinements made to his own house, to the amusement of many friends who dubbed it his Winchester House. Ron's philanthropic contributions to various organizations include generous gifts of funds and antiquities to the University of California at Berkeley, where he is commemorated on the north wall of the Doe Library as one of the "Builders of Berkeley." Whereas in his early years Ron had enjoyed duck hunting in the bay area wetlands and had made annual deer hunting trips to Wyoming and to his much-cherished Grand Tetons, in his later years he focused his efforts towards the protection of open space, especially in northwestern California. He was an avid hiker and mycologist, with a passion for the white king bolete and the golden chanterelle which he enjoyed as a favorite meal. At home, he carefully tended and nurtured his French garden, his cypresses, roses, and his vegetable plots. Among Ron's greatest pleasures was the company of his friends and family. Always a gentleman, according to his friend Jim Westenbroek, Ron was good-natured, with a lively and lovely spirit that will be missed by all who had him in their lives. He leaves behind his wife Guitty Azarpay, his children Laurie Anna Antonioli and son Daniel Ronald Antonioli, daughter and son of Gretchen Gregory, grand-daughter Mayana Morgan Lea and step-daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter Vesa, Gwenael and Nina Becam. As well as his sister-in-law Baerbel Freitag, and his extended family the Muziniches and the Antoniolis in the Bay Area and the Antonioli family in Budva, Montenegro. Ron had countless friends, some of whom he had known since childhood, and others with whom he subsequently developed close ties. A private memorial for Ron will be held at a later date. Donations in his name may be made to a charity of your choice, or to the Bancroft Library, the University of California, Berkeley Foundation, 2080 Addison Street, Berkeley, CA, 94720.

Scott Tiernan

Scott Peter Tiernan Resident of San Jose 53, public relations director, devoted husband and family man; a member of one of Northern California's oldest ranching families. Scott Tiernan was a man who found pure joy in the delight of others. He had a deep love for his friends and family as well as the family ranch in the redwoods of La Honda. As a public relations professional, Scott was happiest when he was celebrating somebody else's successes, and was quiet about his own good deeds. Scott died on Wednesday, September 22, after a brief illness, at O'Connor Hospital in Santa Clara. Born on September 4, 1957, Scott was raised in San Jose, CA by his parents, the late Peter E. Tiernan, attorney, who passed away in 2001, and Maureen O'Connell Tiernan, who passed away in 1996. He was proud of his parents and their families' histories. He was an enthusiastic historian on the subject of cattle ranching, as his mother grew up in one of California's dominant ranching families, with extensive holdings in southern Santa Clara County, the Coyote Valley and San Benito County. He is survived by the love of his life, his wife Michelle, whom he married in May 2002, and his brother Mark, with whom he shared a love of family, all sports, and the family ranch at La Honda. He also is survived by his large extended Irish Catholic family. Scott attended school at Saint Leo's in San Jose, Bellarmine College Preparatory and graduated in 1979 from Loyola Marymount University in West Los Angeles. The influence of the Jesuit education he received in his school years remained with him for the rest of his life, and he often credited his Jesuit schooling for his own strong moral character and beliefs. His wife Michelle remembers him as a man with big ideas and an even bigger heart. He could always find a way to make things happen; like bringing the rodeo back to the La Honda area, "his eyes twinkling with excitement as he talked about how wonderful it would be to restore this tradition." Thinking back on their life together, Michelle says, "My husband Scott was the light of my life. His love was steadfast and true, his kindness unsurpassed and his smile and laughter were contagious. I will miss him all the days of my life." Scott's generosity was legendary. As much as he loved to get away to their cabin in La Honda, he loved even more to offer it to a friend or family member who needed a respite from the stresses of their lives. His brother Mark says, "Scott truly believed the motto "Men for Others". He was a great brother, husband, son and uncle. We were excited about the future and looked forward to the years ahead." His many clients who became his friends during his years with EMC Creative and Coakley Heagarty were often treated to a phone call from Scott that started, "I have this wild idea" Many of these "wild ideas" turned into memorable stories in print, radio and television during his long career. Scott was a champion of Home Aid, the Building Industry Association's non-profit group that provides housing to the transitionally homeless. His energy, endeavor and fearless pursuit of the next opportunity to cast light upon Home Aid's efforts will be long remembered. Just months ago, Scott led the PR efforts to help sell-out the Lesher Center in Walnut Creek for a one-night performance by Dana Carvey as a fundraiser for the organization. A memorial mass will be held at Leontyne Chapel, Bellarmine College Preparatory, 960 W. Heddiing St., SJ, CA 95126 Monday, October 4th at 7:00pm. In lieu of flowers, donations in Scott's name may be made to two organizations's close to Scott's heart: Bellermine Prep Peter E Tiernan Endowment Fund, and HomeAid Northern California,

In Loving Memory of Doris C. Williams August 3, 1927 - October 2, 2008 Your Legacy Lives On ! When we have to make decisions, how to proceed without a clue. We often ask the question, just what would mom do? We knew you to have great wisdom, like you, your mom did too. While growing up we sought to be wise, just like the two of you. You taught us to fear and reverence God, and through us show His love to all. The powerful blessings you spoke in our lives, shaped our destiny, made us stand tall. Two years ago you grew weary, God placed you in His arms to rest. Though we love and miss you sincerely, we do know that God loved you best! Your legacy lives on through Deacon and Pat, Shay, Derrick and Jocelyne too. Though Marcas and Andrew had little time with you, through our lives, we'll show them the person we knew. Your Loving Family

William J. Patterson San Francisco Philanthropist and Investor, Dies at Age 48 William J. Patterson, a prominent San Francisco investor and philanthropist who led the effort to revitalize the California Academy of Sciences, died on Friday, September 24, 2010 at age 48 surrounded by his wife, Elizabeth, and their three children. The cause of death was a brain tumor. Mr. Patterson's unwavering commitment to making a difference in the world was illuminated by his community leadership, his environmentally focused philanthropy, and the building of a highly successful investment partnership. His intellectual gifts and his ability to lead others towards positive change were reflected in his active involvement with a wide variety of local and national organizations. From a young age, Mr. Patterson displayed a natural talent for leadership and excellence. Born in Columbus, Ohio, Mr. Patterson spent his childhood in Grand Junction, Colorado, where he developed his reverence for the outdoors that led to his becoming an avid sportsman and environmentalist. Mr. Patterson went on to attend Harvard College, graduating magna cum laude in 1984. In his senior year at Harvard he was Co-Captain of the Varsity Lightweight Crew and President of the A.D. Club. After graduating, he studied economics for one year at Australia National University in Canberra, Australia as a Rotary Foundation Scholar. After working for Goldman, Sachs & Co., he attended the Stanford Graduate School of Business, graduating as an Arjay Miller Scholar in 1989. Mr. Patterson was named a Henry Crown Fellow of the Aspen Institute in 2004. Upon graduating Stanford, Mr. Patterson went to work with John H. Scully and William E. Oberndorf. In 1991 they founded SPO Partners & Co., which has become one of the nation's leading investment partnerships. During his tenure, Mr. Patterson helped lead a number of extremely successful investments and the firm's assets grew from a modest $40 million to over $8 billion. At the time of his death, he served as a Managing Director of SPO Partners, Chairman of the Board of Calpine Corporation and was a director of Rosewood Hotels and Resorts. Mr. Patterson was a former board member of the Plum Creek Timber Company, where he played an instrumental role in the repositioning and growth of that business. "Bill's extraordinary intelligence, confidence and leadership permeated SPO Partners & Co. from the first day he joined us," said John H. Scully. "His passion for excellence and hard work coupled with his warmth and core humanitarian instincts made him truly inspirational to the many he touched. He is, simply stated, irreplaceable." As Chair of the Board of Trustees of the California Academy of Sciences, Mr. Patterson led the revitalization of this nationally known institution. His leadership helped the Academy complete its $500 million capital campaign last year to build its widely praised new home in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park and greatly expand its environmentally based education programs. "Bill radiated a kind of incandescent presence and an irrepressible optimism that energized all those who worked with him," said Gregory C. Farrington, the Academy's Executive Director. "At the Academy, as in all aspects of his life, he wasn't just doing a job. He was expressing a passion. It showed." As a former trustee and board president of the Bay Area Discovery Museum, Mr. Patterson was keenly involved in a major capital campaign to expand and further develop this institution, which has become nationally acclaimed as a leading children's museum. Mr. Patterson also chaired the Stanford Business School Trust, served as a member of the Advisory Council for the Woods Institute for the Environment at Stanford, and with his wife, Elizabeth, he endowed a professorship in the field of energy and the environment at Harvard College. Mr. Patterson's extensive community involvement also included serving as chair of the investment committee of the Marin Community Foundation, a committee member and supporter of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and wide ranging charitable support for numerous non-profit organizations. He was a devoted husband, father, son, brother and partner, who vastly touched so many with his warmth, generosity of spirit, and zest for living. Mr. Patterson was an avid runner, collected wine, kept bees, and embraced remote travel and discovery to continually learn about the world around him. In addition to his wife of 23 years, Mr. Patterson is survived by his children, William, Eleanor and Graham. He is also survived by his mother, Joan T. McNab of Aspen, Colorado, his father, Dr. William R. Patterson of Grand Junction, Colorado and his siblings Robin J. Blackwood of Bozeman, Montana and Thomas A. Patterson of Portola Valley, California. A memorial service will be announced at a later time. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in Mr. Patterson's name to either the California Academy of Sciences or a charitable organization of their choice. For more information, please contact Krista Martin, SPO Partners & Co., 415-384-2291,

Zino Eddine Mezoui

Zino Eddine Mezoui, 57, owner of Zino's Ristorante in Soda Bay, died Friday, 24 September, 2010 from injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident on Highway 29 at Seigler Canyon Road. Zino and his wife Jan who moved to Lake County in 2006 have been recognized members of the restaurant owners of the county and have been active participants in the life of our community. Zino was born January 11, 1953 in Algiers, Algeria where both his father and grandfather were in the restaurant business and helped to form Zino's life long commitment to the culinary arts. Zino spent part of his early life in France but completed high school in Algeria and Switzerland and then worked at his father's restaurant: "The Sindbad" in Tipasa, Algeria. At the age of 29, Zino moved to New York where he remained for nine months while helping his sister with her first child. After that, he moved to Napa where he took up restaurant work with his Uncle Jacques Mokrani, owner of the French Restaurant "La Boucane." After "La Boucane," Zino was the chef at Gino's Restaurant and Bar in Sonoma for seven years. In 1991, Zino became proprietor and chef of Zino's on the Plaza in Sonoma, CA. Subsequently, in 1996 he became the owner and chef of a second restaurant in Sonoma, Le Bistro. Zino was well known for his community involvement with schools and charitable organizations and frequently played host to groups of foreign visitors who were attracted by his fluency in French. February 18, 2002 was proclaimed "Zino Mezoui Day" by the Mayor of Sonoma in recognition of Zino being "the friendliest restaurant owner and business person," in Sonoma and his "fine tradition of providing good food and good service in a friendly and warm atmosphere." Zino's tradition of putting "his heart and soul into his business and into the community of Sonoma," received appreciation by the entire community. Zino married Jan Flynn also of Sonoma in 2004. Jan was the proprietor of several "Curves" franchises in the Sonoma area in which Zino was increasingly involved until they moved to Lake County in 2006. Zino, once again hearing the call of the restaurant business, opened Zino's Ristorante and Inn in Soda Bay and endeared himself to a whole new set of friends in this area. Zino will be remembered by friends and family as a kind, generous, warm-hearted man who was deeply passionate about his calling in life - making people happy with great food and drink. Zino leaves behind his wife, Jan and two sons, Zino Jr. and Sami, from his previous marriage. He is survived by his mother, his sister and two brothers plus many nieces, nephews, three step children and their families.
