Albert "Ross" Kuhnle

and travelled the world. When he got home, he married Audrey in 1940 and was then drafted into the Navy during WWII. In a letter to his mother he wrote that when he got back home, all he wanted was to be with Audrey and their Son Gordon and never leave Humboldt County again. If it hadn't been for his love of racing, he might never have left, or so it seems. Mom and Dad were a team; a perfect pair who drew people to them. Everyone wanted to be around them, and the fun, food, music and campfires at Willow Creek, and the bright light they brought to family life. Dad was a "motor head" magnet and at the age of 36 got his expert rating in enduro motorcycle racing. He sponsored hardtop, midget, motorcycle and stock car racing. He was a flagman, announcer, watertruck driver, pitman, whatever it took, he made it happen. He was a 50+ member of the Masonic Lodge #79, a lifetime member of the American Motorcycle Association, Farwest Motorcycle Club, Trinity Trailsters, Retreads, E Clampus Vitus 101 and past president of Six Rivers Racing Association. In 1951 he started K & M Glass Company with his wife Audrey and brought both their children into the business in '67 and '70. In this endeavor they set a high standard of ethics that has kept this fine reputation all these years. During this time in business he trained many men to his expectation of high standards of workmanship. He was like a dad and brother to many and will remain a part of them all. He was a true gentleman, and could fit in with any crowd. Always a great storyteller (Hey Dad, tell 'em about the time Dingo ate the $100 bill!). So many favorite stories, I could never get tired of them. He was funny and not from the era of politically correctness, although he was always polite. Women and children loved him. Men admired him. He was a charming gentleman always. Ross was preceded in death by his wife Audrey Lee Britt Kuhnle; and Fay Britt and Stedman Winter. He is survived by his sister Phyllis M. Wilson; brother Edward C. Kuhnle (Bunny); nieces Debra Kuhnle Heyerman, Susan A., Quillen, Louise McDonell, Nancy Vellis and Renee Miller; nephews David Kuhnle, Daniel Wilson, Jon Wilson, and Storme Winter; and cousins LeeAnn Lantrip and Janeane Camacho. The family would like to give special thanks to Jeannie Gillespie and Hannah Sample with Helping Hands in-home care, Dr. Beth Abels for encouraging him to live after he lost Audrey, and Dr. Corey Spencer. Special thanks to Ross D. Kuhnle for caring for his Grandpa this last year and themany friends who helped him. In lieu of flowers the family would like donations made in memory of Ross to Hospice of Humboldt, The or a charity of your choice. A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, October 9, 2010 at 11:00 am at Pierce Mortuary, 707 H Street, Eureka, California. The Hon. Judge John Morrison will officiate. A reception will follow at The Eureka Women's Club on J Street. Care is under the direction of Pierce Mortuary, Eureka, California. Condolences may be left at

BEAULIEU, DENNIS On Saturday, September 18, 2010, we lost a friend. Captain Dennis Beaulieu had a positive attitude, quick wit, and love of life that was infectious. Dennis fell victim to Multiple System Atrophy, a degenerative neurological malady. Flying airplanes was Dennis' dream job. His passion began as a young boy, when his father took him flying in an Aeronca Champ that today sits in the family garage waiting to someday be rebuilt and flown again by another member of the Beaulieu family, Dennis' 13-year-old son Austin. In college, Dennis worked as a member of the United Auto Workers in Detroit but knew he was destined to fly and nothing was going to stand in his way. He began his aviation career as a commuter pilot in Michigan and then went on to fly for a small cargo airline, Zantop. In November 1978 at age 26, Dennis became a Flying Tiger DC-8 Second Officer. Dennis would go on to fly the B747, DC-10, B727, and finally the MD10 and MD11. He circumnavigated the globe many times in his career and particularly loved flying in Europe. Those who flew with him say it was always a pleasure; he was a true gentleman, the consummate professional, and an excellent Captain. For years Dennis served his fellow pilots as a member of the FDX MEC Professional Standards Committee; a position to which he was well suited. Dennis loved the water almost as much as he loved the sky. Racing his Thistle and Catalina sailboats in San Diego became a passion, one he was able to share with his wife, Marie, and his son Austin. A memorial mass will be held on Friday, October 15th, at Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church in La Mesa at 11:00 a.m. Memorials may be made to the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix, AZ.

Upon leaving the Navy, he was hired by the Judicial Council of California, where he helped draft laws for the state. He was then hired as the first in northern California in the then new program that provided court commissioners to adjudicate cases in a similar capacity to judges. He was the traffic commissioner in Oakland for 20 years where he did the weighted caseload work of three commissioners or judges. It was his practice to spend many lunch hours driving to intersections to see if what the defendants described as the conditions that prevented them from following the law were valid. He was active in many political and academic committees including leading discussion groups at the Commonwealth Club. He was also involved with the Sierra Club, Americans United for Life, Smile Train, the Nature Conservancy, and many more. In 1991, he lost his home in the Oakland Hills fire. His home was about 100 yards from where the fire started, and before it was fully engaged, Donald tried to help a neighbor extinguish the fire on his roof before realizing the fire was spreading quickly and he barely made it out before the fire reached him. Donald was beloved for his strength, principles, kindness, intelligence, wisdom, willingness to help others, hard work, and toughness. He was a valuable resource for all who asked him for advice in his knowledge of the law and financial dealings and was a vast storehouse of knowledge and sound thinking in politics, keeping track of politicians and laws and votes over many years. There will be no replacement available for this man. To know him was to love him. A memorial mass will be said for him at St. Hilary's Catholic Church in Tiburon on Sunday, October 10 at 9 AM.

Later, she would meet and marry the love of her life, Merle Joseph Finnerty (Bones). Together they made their home in Baden, Pa., along with their two children, Deborah Lynn Brook (Finnerty) and Merle Joseph Finnerty Jr. (Joe), both of Vacaville. It was during this time Dolores accepted the Lord as her personal Savior; which she found comfort after Bones passed away in 1971., In 1984, Dolores joined both her children in Merced, Calif. She attended Merced Community College and also worked there. When she wasn't working or studying, she was a Red Cross volunteer at Castle Air Force Base. She also spent countless hours at the local nursing home visiting people who didn't have family. In 1987, she once again followed her children to Vacaville, Calif. Dolores would remain in Vacaville for a few years ,then back to Pennsylvania, and then finally back to Vacaville, permanently, in 1999., Shortly after returning to Vacaville, she got her dream job with Solano Community College as an extended campus assistant at Travis Air Force Base. She loved working with the military and helping them achieve their educational goals. Dolores loved decorating the office with the latest season or holiday d\écor. Later, she moved to the Vacaville campus where the staff and students came to love her. The last few months she had moved to the Vallejo campus where she found the students so kind to her. Dolores had many friends at Solano Community College and looked forward to each day with her staff and students., Dolores' two main purposes in life were to serve her Lord and to care for her children. You knew not to disturb her in the early hours of the morning, because that was her time to read her Bible and worship. She was constantly praying for family, friends, co-workers or people she didn't even know., Dolores was a devoted and loving mom to her children. While raising them, she always made sure they went on vacations, had grand birthday parties, took them to the drive-in theater to see a scary movie, or just open her home to her children's friends to hang-out or go swimming. Her children loved playing practical jokes on Dolores and on one particular occasion she made her young son, Joe, undress outside because she knew he had a snake. Only problem is she didn't know he hid the snake in his folded clothes. Once Joe came in the house you could hear a blood curdling scream for miles!, Dolores enjoyed life and the people she met to the fullest. She always felt the need to show compassion to those less fortunate, especially the homeless. Her other passion was traveling with both her children while they were in the Air Force. Along with them she got to see the world! When she wasn't taking care of all her plants, she would be relaxing reading a good book., Dolores is survived by both her children; son-in-law, Gary Brook; and daughter-in-law, Charmaine (Woodard) Finnerty. She leaves behind six grandchildren, Christine (Finnerty) Dedominicis, Meagen Finnerty all from Pennsylvania; Kelli and Ryan Brook; Jasmine and Sean Finnerty, all from Vacaville; and two great-grandsons, Shawn Jr., and Logan Dedominicis from Pennsylvania., Dolores was preceded in death by her parents, John and Ethel; brother, Ernie; sister, Mary; husband, Bones; and great-grandson, Aiden., Our family is so thankful and appreciative for the loving support and prayers of so many friends and family.

Joseph Whalley

Joseph M. Whalley 1927-2010 Joseph Whalley, former aerospace engineer, stained glass artist, wine-maker and all around "Renaissance man" died at home October 5, 2010. He was a Lompoc resident for 45 years. His was a life propelled by lifelong curiosity, a wry sense of humor and a brilliant mind. He was born in San Francisco, and grew up on a farm in Tracy, California in pre-aqueduct days, when growing crops in the Central Valley was called "dust farming". Though very poor, books and learning were always important to him. After high school, he earned his engineering degree at UC Berkeley and served with the US Navy through the end of World War II developing early radar systems. In later years he worked for Hughes Aircraft in LA, Aerospace Corporation at VAFB and AMF in Santa Barbara, among others. He was involved in projects as varied as missile design, robotics, remote-controlled fire suppression systems and desalination plants. Outside of work, he was intrigued by just about everything that came his way. He took up stained glass and built many large windows around Lompoc, including those at the Seventh Day Adventist and United Methodist churches. Several residences in Santa Barbara County also feature his windows. He invented and built electronic games and robots for his kids – long before video games were available. In later years, he became interested in wine making, and was an early member of the Central Coast Amateur Winemaking Association. His award-winning wine was wonderful, both grape, and a rare pomegranate variety. He grew his own grapes and persuaded friends and neighbors to take cuttings - thus increasing his yearly yield! His vines are in many back yards in Lompoc. He was an avid cook, made great jams and jellies – and in true engineering fashion, kept his spices in alphabetical order for easier access! He had one great love, his wife Barbara, who he married in 1952. She died in 1993 and he missed her every day. Though raised and practicing Catholicism, he also attended his wife's church (Lompoc Methodist) continuing until the month before he died. He had many life-long friends of all faiths. He leaves his son Bill Haines-Whalley and daughters Elizabeth Lee and Christine Lynch, as well as their spouses Wendie Haines-Whalley, Art Simons and Charles Lynch. He had two grandchildren, Christopher Whalley and Annie North, and 5 great-grandchildren, and numerous nieces, nephews and extended family. Funeral service will be Saturday, October 9, 2010, at 1:00PM at First United Methodist Church in Lompoc. Viewing one hour prior to service, and reception following. In lieu of flowers, the family requests contributions to the United Methodist Church Missions Fund, or the charity of your choice.

Leonardo P. Breiz Was taken from us suddenly & unexpectedly on October 5, 2010, by a heart attack, while working on his car. Leonardo was born October 18, 1953 in Sipocot, Camarines Sur, Philippines. In 1971 he immigrated with his family to San Francisco, USA. Of that family, he is survived and mourned by his mother, Ceferina, siblings Marlyn (Dan), Edwin (Nory), Floro (Cynthia), Honesto (Maureen), Lorna (Chris) and Francisco "Kiko" (Maria), predeceased by his father, Orlando, and brother Francisco "Tinapai". Joining his siblings in grief are his beloved partner, Linda, her son Jeremy and daughter Natalie, his adoring children Leonardo "Boogie" Jr. (Nadia) and Daniel (Racquel), Nina (Carlos) and Emily (Marina), and his precious grandchildren Siena, River, Stella and Levi. All who knew Leonardo will forever cherish the memory of how our lives were lit by his incomparable smile, his gentle wisdom, gracious demeanor and pure spirit. Leonardo was a self-made man, a bright star, honored "Kuya" to his brothers and sisters, devoted father, provider and shining example to his children, hero and guardian angel to his entire family, loving companion to Linda, and so much more to so many: esteemed employee and co-worker, prodigious mechanic, seasoned traveler, fisherman, outdoorsman, gourmet cook, smooth Salsa dancer and life-long learner. Admired by all for his many virtues and talents, he could fix any broken thing, untangle any knot, solve any problem, and he generously shared all these skills whenever his help was needed, which was often. He once wrote, "...Sacrifice is I think one of the nice things that a person can do for another", and he lived by that belief every day, always sacrificing for those he loved and never asking anything in return. He will be sorrowfully and eternally missed. Following a private family farewell, his remains will be cremated and borne to a final resting place to be determined. Family and friends are invited to honor and remember Leonardo on Sunday, October 10, 2010. For information and details, please call (650)291-6725.

Milton E. Harris Ph.D.

Milt delighted in artifacts of truth; his appetite for history, science, and some traditions of eastern philosophy, was especially deep, and he leaves behind an immense and worldly library. But he had no pretentions; he irreverently strove to be ordinary, and he yearned to transcend the impeachable trappings of truth. Through a strong sense of duty, ethics, and loyalty; through his support of a bright girl growing up with few options in rural Mexico; through meditative walks to Lake Ilsanjo and earthy baths in Wilbur Hot Springs; through altered states of consciousness, deep-bellied humor, and gentle-hearted whimsy; through music, poetry, aikido, and flights inside the sky; and through a sometimes stubborn but deeply potent embrace of family and friends; he strove to connect to love. Early Saturday morning, with wife and son by his side, Milton gently sent-up his collected wisdom; tokens of his sweet heart and active mind are left behind. He was deeply loved and will be achingly missed by many. Milt was the first board-certified neuropsychologist in Sonoma County, where he practiced as a clinical psychologist for over thirty years. He was a longtime member and served numerous times on the executive board of the Redwood Psychological Association (President 1985, 1999-2001; 2007-2008); a member of the American Psychological Association (Division of Neuropsychology); California Psychological Association; International Neuropsychological Society; National Academy of Neuropsychology; Northern California Neuropsychology Forum; and Society for Personality Assessment. Born in Pittsburgh, PA to parents Milton and Ruth, he grew up among the cheering fans of the Pittsburgh Pirates, most memorably during the 1960 World Series. Milt asked that as you remember him, you also remember Roberto Clemente, the right fielder for the Pittsburgh Pirates. Roberto was one of Milt's heroes and one his many soul mates. Milton will be missed by his wife Lea Goode-Harris; son Orin Harris, and Orin's mother, Elizabeth Harris; brother and wife, Richard Harris and Marjorie Levinson; nieces Olivia and Cecily, nephew Daniel; in-laws Dale, Nydia, and Mimí Goode; and by his many friends and colleagues near and far. A celebration of Milt's life will be held at his home on Saturday, October 30th. For details please visit the website for 'miltharris' or contact Orin Harris at In lieu of flowers, etc., Milton would have invited you to consider a donation to the website, or St. Joseph Memorial Hospice of Santa Rosa at 821 Mendocino Ave., Santa Rosa, CA 95401, or the Redwood Psychological Association serving the counties of Sonoma, Marin, and Mendocino at P.O.

Peter S. Horner

Ocean- lover that he was, Peter Stirling Horner passed on September 20, 2010 to another destination as yet unknown to us, dying at his Trinidad home. Pete, as he was usually known, was recently considering resumption of his prior career of massage therapy, a college degree earned here. It was an occupation where-in he found great satisfaction relieving other people's body aches and pains. Loving a toasty fire himself, for 14 years he cut and delivered firewood to the community at large. Adept at caring for plants he, for sometime ran a business called "Surf and Turf", a landscaping and gardening venture, helping people develop and keep their gardens in order. Being a long time ocean surfer which he so thoroughly enjoyed, this past Saturday, his surfing long board was taken to Crescent City by fellow surfers in a memorial commemorating his great enjoyment of that sport. Peter never married but he leaves behind many friends and relatives, as well as his immediate family of his mother: Marian B. Nicholson of Trinidad, and his sister Helen Thornock of Annabella Utah. We believe that Peter would prefer not having the formality of a memorial service but would instead like each of his friends to remember him- each in his own special way.

Rachel Ann Passalacqua Seghesio

Died peacefully in the company of her two children September 30th, 2010 at the age of 80. The beloved matriarch was the last of the second generation of the Seghesio wine family; her entire life was dedicated to family, farming and the wine business. Rachel Ann was aided in life by her faith, rich friendships and the love of reading, gardening and travel. Rachel Ann was born in Healdsburg on February 28th, 1930 to Emil and Camille Passalacqua who instilled in her a strong Catholic faith, a love of farming and an appreciation for learning. Her early childhood was deeply influenced by grapes and wine. Growing up on the Passalacqua Ranch was magical for Rachel Ann; her childhood was marked by the seasons and the beauty, richness and humility of each harvest. Ever a dutiful daughter and sister, she and her siblings helped their father on the ranch, harvesting prunes, pears and grapes. Her wine roots are traced to Oliveto Winery in Healdsburg (purchased by her grandmother Rachele Passalacqua in 1934) where her father was the winemaker. After graduating from Healdsburg High School, she attended San Francisco College for Women (Lone Mountain) and received her B.A. Returning home, she taught first and second grade in Sonoma County Schools for five years during which time she met her future husband Eugene Peter Seghesio. Upon their marriage in 1956, she moved to the Home Ranch at Chianti, California, becoming active and devoted to the Seghesio family wine business. Rachel Ann weighed grapes and handled accounting and payroll for the family during its bulk wine production; upon bottling their first wine under their own name in 1983, Rachel Ann became an ambassador for the Seghesio brand. She quickly developed a reputation for her gracious hospitality and legendary culinary skills whereby she brought her extensive garden to the table. She later became a travelling ambassador for the winery into the marketplace. Her last role, by far the most rewarding, began in 2006 when, at the request of her son Peter, she began working as hostess of the family's weekend wine and food pairings. She delighted in sharing with guests Seghesio's rich 100+ year history and made a remarkable impression on those she met. Rachel Ann was a woman of great integrity, honesty, kindness, generosity and an indomitable faith. She was a passionate individual who lived richly and was deeply spiritual, nurturing and selfless, always putting others before herself. She was an avid traveler with her favorite traveling companion, her daughter, Camille. She loved the Home Ranch, her garden and her pets. She adored her children and grandchildren and was a devoted, nurturing mother and grandmother. Her inquisitive intellect spurred a voracious appetite for reading; she co-founded a book club in 1964, which is still ongoing today. Rachel Ann richly nurtured her friendships like a garden and they bore fruit. She was preceded in death by her husband Eugene Peter Seghesio; and is survived by her beloved family, son Peter Seghesio, daughter Amy Camille Seghesio, daughter-in-law Cathy Clements Seghesio; grandsons Joseph and William Seghesio; brother Fred Passalacqua (Donna), sister Jeanne Passalacqua; and numerous nieces and nephews. A rosary vigil will be held at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Catholic Church in Asti Monday, October 11th at 6:30 p.m. with visitation starting at 5:00 p.m. Funeral mass and service will be held at St. John's Catholic Church in Healdsburg on Tuesday October 12th at 12:00 noon. Memorial donations in Rachel Ann's name may be made to St. John's School; the family plans to establish a scholarship fund in Rachel Ann's name. Funeral arrangements are being handled by FRED YOUNG FUNERAL HOME IN CLOVERDALE 707-894-2540.

All I have are memories and a picture in a frame. You memory is a keepsake from which I\'ll never part. God has you in his arms, I have you in my heart." A year ago that earthly world dimmed However Heaven brightened to the brim Your Life blessed ours beyond measure Your Love, through your hugs and care, spread so much pleasure Your smile and demeanor brought us so much Laughter Your family and friends love and miss you more daily until we meet again in the hereafter
