GRINDLE, A. WOODROW February 17, 1919 to Oct. 16, 2010 Aubrey Woodrow "Woody" Grindle passed away peacefully on Saturday, October 16, 2010, at age 91. Aerospace employment brought Woody and his wife Dotty from Chicago to Chula Vista in 1940. He was deeply involved in the Chula Vista Community Congregational Church as Treasurer and member of the Board of Trustees and Congregational Tower Board of Directors. Singing in the choir, playing bridge with the Church Couples Club, and pledging generously to the Church brought the Grindles joy. Employed by Rohr in Chula Vista and General Dynamics (Convair Division) in San Diego as an aeronautical engineer, Woody spent 32 years designing aircraft. Many people benefited from Woody's involvement with the Chula Vista Laubach Literacy Program and for over fifteen years he was committed to the success of the program. Bridge and crossword puzzles kept his mind sharp and he had a life-long fondness for animals, especially Shelties. Woody Grindle is survived by children Sandy Grindle, Margy Milner (Brian), and Dan Grindle (Michaela), grandchildren John and Rita Grindle, sister Lorraine Marr, sister-in-law Anne Grindle, and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his wife Dotty and siblings Adeline, Gene and Allen. A soft-spoken, caring human being with a quiet dignity, Woody was a loving husband, father, and grandfather. Devoted to God, family, and church, he lived a long and rewarding life.

ALBERT E. (SACH) GOMEZ Jr. (In Memoriam)

GOMEZ, ALBERT E. JR. (SACH) March 24, 1963 to October 24, 2000 We little knew that morning that God was going to call your name. In life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone; for part of us went with you the day God called you home. You left us peaceful memories, your love is still our guide, and though we cannot see you, you are always by our side. Our family chain is broken and nothing seems the same, but as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again. Love, Mom, Monie, Chris and Families

LAIRD, ANNA LOUISE November 2, 1923 to Oct. 21, 2010 Anna Louise Laird, born on November 2, 1923, died peacefully in her sleep on October 21, 2010, at the age of 86. Anna was a native San Diegan and no matter where she and her husband Claude traveled, she was always glad to return to her hometown where she happily spent her long life. Anna was preceded in death ten years ago by her beloved husband of 56 years Claude Laird, and two years ago by her loving son William Laird. She is survived by her son Robert Laird and his family, daughter Elizabeth St. John and her family, and daughter-in-law Jeannine Laird and her (and Bill's) family. She also leaves behind a large extended family of nieces and nephews and her good friend whom she met late in her life, Dot Haber. As a young woman, Anna's passion was dancing. She attended USO events in downtown San Diego and danced many a night away, delighting in the rhythms of jitterbug and swing tunes of her era. She gave up her dancing to marry the love of her life, Claude, who unfortunately shared neither the talent nor her passion for dancing! However, they both shared the joy and love that came from raising their three children and participating in being adoring grandparents. Anna was an exceptional wife and mother. Her husband and children were the core of her life and taking care of them brought her great joy and contentment. She was a sweet, caring, and loving lady who didn't have a mean bone in her body. She is missed dearly, but she will reside in our hearts always. Per her wishes, there will be no funeral. Instead, the family will hold a graveside memorial for her where she will be laid to rest next to the love of her life, Claude. We wish to thank Grossmont Gardens and Odyssey Hospice for the wonderful care they gave her.

Charlotte McCloskey

Charlotte Menend McCloskey Feb. 6, 1933 - Oct. 10, 2010 Charlotte made her eternal journey on Oct. 10, 2010. Charlotte cherished life, beauty and people. Her greatest treasures were her many friends and beloved family, especially the youngest ones - her grandchildren, grandnephew and grandniece. San Francisco, Hillsborough and Lake Tahoe truly held Charlotte's heart. She was raised in San Francisco with her accomplished sister Beverly. After graduating from George Washington High School, Charlotte went on to Cal where she met her husband, Kenneth, while building a homecoming float. As newlyweds Char and Ken were stationed in Honolulu where Ken served in the Navy, Char began her teaching career and daughter Kendy was born. The young family relocated and purchased their first home in Daly City. While Ken completed his studies at Hastings law school, Char taught and served as pianist at the Methodist church. Longing to move out of the fog when Ken graduated, they drove south on Skyline, found sunny Hillsborough, and have been deeply rooted in the community ever since. Daughter Kelly was born in 1963 and Charlotte became very active in the schools and community service. She served in a wide variety of ways from room mother to Parent Group President, Co-Chair of the Hillsborough Concours D'Elegance, Poplar Center Haunted House Chair, Filoli docent, and enjoyed Garden and Book Clubs. When her girls were launched, Charlotte returned to teaching, as an aide with her favorite age group - kindergartners, at North Hillsborough School. Bridge became a passion, and Charlotte's competitive side flourished. She enjoyed winning, but even more, she savored afternoons of cards and conversation with friends she loved. Charlotte's gifts of hospitality, generosity, humor and joie de vive will not only be remembered fondly, but are now inextricable woven into the lives of those who knew her. Charlotte is survived by her husband Kenneth of fifty-five years, her sister Beverly and her husband Allan Sebanc of Hillsborough; her daughters and their husbands Kendy and Tyler Easley of Washington; Kelly McCloskey and Ray Polito of Wyoming; and grandchildren Maxwell Polito, Madelyn and Mason Easley; niece Stacey S.

He was a combat veteran in the Submarine Service, and a Pearl Harbor Survivor, and following his retirement from the Navy, completed another career with the California Department of Corrections, where his last and favorite assignment was being the Activities Coordinator at San Quentin. He was an avid stamp collector for over 50 years, but did not limit his collecting activities to stamps. He was well known for collecting diverse items such as coins, rocks, and sometimes just plain junk, and he and Dale loved to prowl through garage sales in search of interesting things. Chris led an active life, often demonstrating more energy than those much younger, and was actually recently observed climbing trees in his back yard to prune branches. He brought warmth and joy into every life that he touched, always upbeat, always with a smile and a joke, a "scratch and sniff sticker", care packages for grandchildren away at college, and sabotaging mail and packages by enclosing glitter that spilled out all over the unwary recipient. He was greatly loved and will be sorely missed, but is undoubtedly somewhere enjoying unlimited quantities of peanut brittle and ice cream. A memorial service to celebrate his life will be held on November 14th 2010 at 2:30 p.m. at The Sonoma Veterans' Memorial Hall, 126 First Street West, Sonoma, CA.

E. Trent Andrews

E. Trent Andrews, M.D., F.A.C.S. Surgeon, inventor, outdoorsman - sailed into the San Francisco sunset on October 12, 2010, 8pm, after a long, valiant battle with Parkinson's Disease. As Parkinson's neared its latest stages and Trent became physically and then verbally incapacitated, he opted to spend his final years in his own bed at home, where he was cared for around the clock by his devoted wife Kaethe, a retired emergency-room nurse with whom he also used to work alongside. Trent hung on a miraculous 2 months without food, medicine nor machinery, subsisting solely on water and love until God's invitation to go yachting was too tempting for Trent, 73, to resist. An African-American born on December 14, 1936, and raised in Philadelphia by parents Enos and Gertrude Andrews, Trent was a graduate of Central High School, Lincoln University and Hahnemann Medical College. His internship was at Saint Joseph's hospital in Syracuse, N.Y.. It was in Philadelphia that he met and married Adrienne East; a son, Erik Trent Andrews, was born of this union. From 1963-67, Trent served in the, as a battalion surgeon with the Marines. While stationed at Moffett Field, in California, he met the late Marian Palmer, whom he married. After the Navy, Trent completed his residency in orthopedic surgery at the University of Pennsylvania Medical Center, then set up private practice in San Francisco. Trent was on staff and multiple committees at most of the hospitals around the Bay Area. He loved teaching and lecturing, becoming an associate clinical professor at U.C.S.F.. Always looking for ways to improve surgical techniques, Trent's active mind resulted in many patents for equipment related to his field. His best-known inventions are the ANDREWS SPINAL SURGERY TABLE and the ANDREWS FRAME, manufactured by OSI (Mizuhosi) for over 25 years and used worldwide. Trent had a trademark zest for life and enjoyed literally everything it had to offer; he called himself a "sampler." He was a member of Flying Physicians' Association, Aircraft Owners' and Pilots' Association, Kappa Alpha Psi and Sigma Pi Phi Fraternities, Grand Boule, Olympic Club and the St. Francis Yacht Club. Outdoor activities were Trent's passion, including running, tennis, skiing, scuba diving and especially sailing. He was able to combine work and hobby when he served as Medical Director for the Golden Gate Challenge for the 12-meter yacht, "USA," in the 1987 America's Cup at Australia. Music was Trent's other pleasure. Jazz and classical were the incidental music of his life; his son and prodigious grandchildren have inherited this talent. He was also an insatiable reader and world traveler, his most memorable trip being a month-long dog-sledding expedition to the High Arctic, N.W. Greenland, with his Danish wife, Kaethe. It was always a joy to engage Trent's lively sense of humor just to hear his hearty laugh. He loved good food, great wines and even better conversations with his friends and family. Trent is survived by his only child, Erik Trent Andrews (Joyce), sister Gertrude Baker, first niece Terri, twin grandsons Trent and Marcus, stepson Thomas Carter, lifelong friend Irad, several nieces and nephews and a host of faithful friends and colleagues. Our special thanks to everyone at Hospice of the Bay: Vicente, Tony, Alfred, Kelly and all the staff. An open memorial mass will be held for Dr. Andrews on Friday 10/29, 11am, at Saint Emydius church, 286 Ashton (near Ocean Ave.) San Francisco, followed by a celebration of his life at Trent's favorite hang-out, the Saint Francis Yacht Club on the marina. Family, friends and colleagues are invited to attend. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the National Parkinson's Foundation, 1501 N.W. 9th Ave., Bob Hope Rd., Miami, FL 333136-1484, or to Hospice of the Bay, 1902 Van Ness Ave., 2nd Fl., San Francisco, CA 94109.

SAVILLE, HELEN ELIZABETH (BETTY) Betty was born in Los Angeles, California, to Otto and Anna Adelaide Groeschel. Her brothers were Thomas Everett, George Otto and Charles James. Betty grew up in Ocean Beach and graduated from Point Loma High School. She married another PLHS graduate, the late Eric Saville in 1941 and they eventually had three sons. In the early fifties, Eric was transferred to General Dynamics in Pomona where the young family made a new home. When Eric took a gamble and started a two-man aerospace hydraulics company with fellow engineer Raymond Hunt, it fell on Betty to do the heavy lifting at home with the three young boys as Eric was consumed with the start-up company. She worked tirelessly as both a homemaker and a supportive spouse. Not a day went by that didn't include a fresh cooked breakfast, well-balanced brown bag lunches for her husband and sons and, in the evening, a wonderful home-cooked meal when all would share their experiences of the day. After seeing that all three of her sons completed college and had moved forward with their lives and careers, Betty made her way back to her San Diego roots. She reunited with her old friends and made new ones. Never one to sit back and relax, Betty became involved in helping others through her work in various charities, including the Social Services Auxiliary, Mercy Hospital Auxiliary, USD Auxiliary and Presidents Club and the Legion of Mary. While friends often surrounded Betty, there was no denying that she stood-out in a crowd. She was always quick to give a word of advice, solicited or not, but she always meant well. Throughout her life, Betty never sat still. She loved to repeat the old saying "idle hands are the devil's workshop". It was not until the final two years of her life that illnesses forced her to slow down. She was in hospice care for well over a year and during this time she was able to reminisce and share unconditional love with her family. During the last few months of her life Betty often stated that she "wanted to go home". On October 16th, she looked at her loving caregiver Marilyn, thanked her, told her she loved her, and said she was going home. She took a deep breath, closed her eyes, and was gone. Predeceased by Eric Sr. and their eldest son Eric Jr., Betty is survived by her sons Michael (Patricia) and Patrick (Lynda); her grandchildren Scott, Shaun (Julie), Kyle, and Kellia; her step-grandchildren Peter and Allison Hastings; foster granddaughter Christal Saville; and great-grandson Emmett Alan. Nana, you were an amazing woman and you will always be in our hearts. Funeral Mass will be held on Saturday, October 30th, at 9:30 a.m. at the Immaculate Conception Church, Old Town, 2540 San Diego Avenue, San Diego 92110. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Mercy Hospital Auxiliary, 4077 Fifth Ave., San Diego, CA 92103, 619-260-7150.

James Lee

JAMES CHIOH LEE James Chioh Lee of Riverside left his worldly body on Oct. 15 to join his Heavenly Father. He was 39 years old. James succumbed to brain cancer after a valiant five-month battle. He was nurtured by his loving family, friends and fellow Brothers and Sisters at Harvest Christian Fellowship, where he served as their publications editor. James was born in Santa Clara, Calif. on Jan. 5, 1971. He graduated from the University of California, Irvine with a bachelor\'s degree in English, and went on to follow his lifelong passion for sports as a sports writer at the Riverside Press-Enterprise. He then went on to write for Our Times, a Los Angeles Times Community Edition to cover sports in the Inland Empire. James moved on to become a sports editor at the Daily Pilot in Costa Mesa But it was James\' greatest thrill when he was named as publications editor of the Harvest Christian Fellowship. "He dedicated his life to serving God," said his wife, Danielle Lee. "He truly did, in every way." James was also a wonderful, loving husband and father to Jimmy and Emma. He savored the "small" things like playing with them in the park, taking them to see his parents, James and Grace Lee. He was filled with joy and pride over their accomplishments in school and life. Aside from his service to the Lord and devotion to his family he also has a passion for fellowship with friends, sports and he was a foodie. After James got his diagnosis, he kept his priorities on his Faith. "He didn\'t say I want to go to the Bahamas," Danielle Lee said. "He said he wanted to work at the Harvest Crusade." He lived to serve God and love his family. He did both with honor and integrity. He never blamed God, nor expressed any bitterness at his condition. Rather, in his final days he kept talking about how much he was looking forward to returning "Home" -- with God. He served God until the end. Besides his wife, children and parents, James is survived by his two older sisters, Vivian Lee-Meltzer and Joy Fossett. A celebration of James\' life is planned for next Tuesday, October 26th at Harvest Christian Fellowship, 6115 Arlington Ave., Riverside, at 3pm.

He was killed on August 27, 2010 in Santa Maria Coytopec, a small village South of Oaxaca, Mexico. His body was found last Saturday, October 16, 2010. Lane was a man who lived life to the fullest - a man for all seasons. Full of energy and enthusiasm, he traveled to Oaxaca during his senior year at the University of California in Santa Cruz, to write his thesis on the street children of Oaxaca. There he fell in love with the City, its people, and with his partner of 25 years, David Perez. Eighteen years ago he and David made Mexico their permanent home, building a house in San Andreas Huayapam, just outside of town. As a toddler Lane lived in Honolulu, Hawaii. He attended elementary school in both Orinda and Moraga, California. While junior high school he lived with his family in Helena, Montana. Lane attended high school at Sir Francis Drake High School in San Anselmo, California. Just one week before his disappearance he returned to California to attend his 29th high school reunion at Drake's School Within A School. Reconnecting with his old friends and teachers, was such a joyful time for him. Over the years Lane was a general contractor, a real estate agent and a stained glass artist, donating several of his beautiful stained glass windows to 17th Century churches in both his own and the neighboring village of Tlalixtac de Cabrera. His windows also hang in hotels and municipal buildings in Mexico Because he respected the value of education, he helped many students attain their post-secondary degrees at a number of schools in Oaxaca. Lane is survived by his partner, David Perez Zarate of San Andreas Huyapam, Mexico; his mother, Jerilyn Gilbert and her partner Susan Efros of Fairfax; his brother Reid Gilbert and his partner John Fox of Santa Rosa; an uncle, Gary Gilbert of Roseville; Blair Gilbert of Riverside; step-brother Jonathan Hodgkin of Santa Barbara; many cousins and deep friends both in the United States and in Mexico, and a large extended family in Oaxaca. He is now at peace with his father, the late Howard Mel Gilbert, as well as his adoring grandparents Trudy and Ted Cherin; and Helen and Jules Gilbert. His laugh and light will be missed by us all. A memorial service in Lane's honor will be forthcoming, after his brother Reid, returns from Mexico.

Paul Rossi

Paul S. Rossi Resident of Redwood City Born in Akron Ohio July 19, 1929 and Alive in Christ October 15, 2010. Youngest of 8 adored and loved children of Filomena and Angelo Rossi. Paul began life in a tough year, but learned quickly from his older brothers how to crawl under the neighbor's chicken coops in Akron for eggs and grab a few ears of corn on the way. They also got him hooked on golf at the age of 12. His two favorite places were either in church or on the golf course. He loved his Catholic faith and was a devout member of St. Vincent's in Akron Ohio and later Mt. Carmel Parish in Redwood City where Pastor Balleza was quoted as saying "We are missing one of our pillars" when he moved July 1, 2010 to Santa Rosa CA. Being an Italian, family dinners and card games were cherished as were every family member. He kept in touch with nearly everyone he ever knew through his letter writing. He moved to Redwood City when he was discharged from the military and lived with his mother briefly before meeting Carol Tracy on a blind date set up by his niece Carole Guanuario. Six months and a couple of wonderful letters later in 1956, they were married. He graduated from San Jose State University while working full time for Safeway. He retired June 2010 of this year from the Sequoia Station Safeway in Redwood City. I don't believe Safeway was aware they had an 81 year old working for them. He happily greeted everyone and was the only employee allowed to wear his signature hat. He leaves behind 1 living sister, Vilma Merendino, Akron Ohio, 3 memory filled children Steven Rossi (The Moose) of Vancouver Washington, RaLinda Ginocchio (Princess) of Santa Rosa and Tracy Kirincic (Baby Doll) of Mountain View CA, 5 grandchildren, Nicolette Grant, Anthony Kirincic, Carlea Rossi, Julia Kirincic and Caroline Kirincic all residing in California and numerous nieces and nephews.

Robert Bruce Crowder Loving son, brother, uncle, friend, world traveler, diver, cultivator of orchids, baker of cookies. Born September 11, 1948 in San Francisco. Died October 17, 2010 while vacationing in Indonesia. Growing up in Walnut Creek, CA and Huntington, NY, Bobby collected rocks, bugs, and injured birds fueling a healthy curiosity of the natural world that would be a theme throughout his life When the Giants moved to San Francisco, Bobby, living in New York, became an ardent fan. One of his prized possessions was a baseball autographed by the entire 1962 team. Years later when Bobby moved back to the bay area, he became a season ticket holder, attending many spring training camps and knew that 2010 could be their year (like every other year). After leaving John Glenn High School in 1966 Bobby embarked on a long string of adventures starting with attending the University of Delaware, then his move back to the Bay Area. He served in the US Navy working on computers in nuclear submarines. He spent many summers searching for gold in the high Sierras, traveled throughout Mexico each fall and spent winters skiing in Squaw Valley. He received his BS degree in Biology from the University of Oregon in1977 and managed the Chi Omega sorority to its first appearance in the softball intramurals final. Soon thereafter he settled in Sausalito, CA and began a career in residential real estate with Frank Howard Allen in Greenbrae. He loved the people he worked with and built longstanding friendships with many of his clients who became extended members of his family. For Bobby, life was all about his family and friends. He was accepting and supportive of everyone and welcomed new members with open arms. As a friend you could also expect him to call you out when you needed it and trusted his motivation in doing it. Each Christmas Bobby would disappear for a few days reemerging with 150 dozen of his patent pending oatmeal cookies. You knew you were in good standing when he counted out your dozen. Bobby looked out for all his friends and family. Bob's greatest passions were scuba diving and underwater photography. He dived extensively in the Pacific, venturing to Palau, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands, the Marshall Islands, and Fiji. He also dived in the Caymans, the Dominican Republic, and Baja California. Having been on thousands of dives, in recent years he became increasingly concerned as he witnessed increasing ecological damage to the undersea environment. Preventing the destruction of coral reefs due to blast fishing and agricultural runoff, and stopping the decimation of shark populations to satisfy the growing appetite for shark fin soup were of immense importance to Bob. When he wasn't diving, Bob developed a green thumb. An active member of the Marin Orchid Society, Bobby cultivated and nurtured over 500 Orchids at his Sausalito home. When not at home, he could be found in his parents' garden tending the raspberries, strawberries and vegetables and harvesting its bounty for the family. Bobby never met a tomato he didn't like. Bobby is survived by his parents, Jackie and Bob Crowder of Belvedere/Tiburon, his sister Sally Leonard of San Francisco, brother Jimmy Crowder and sister-in-law Gina Crowder of Portland, sister Peggy Campbell and brother-in-law Bill Campbell of Colorado Springs, niece Meagan Crowder of Denver, CO, nephew Nick Leonard of San Francisco, and nephew Bobby Crowder of Portland, OR. The family requests that in lieu of flowers, contributions in Bob's name be made to Coral Reef Alliance or Shark Savers

Robert Earl Billings

Billings, Robert Earl March 31, 1933 - October 9th, 2010 Robert Earl Billings passed away early in the morning on Saturday, October 9, 2010, at the Eisenhower Medical Center in Rancho Mirage, Calif. Robert was born on March 31, 1933, in Windsor, Colo., to Percy and June Billings. He was the first of four children. His father was a production chemist in the sugar beet industry until 1941 when he moved to Southern California to work in the aircraft industry. The family followed in early 1942 and Robert has been a resident of Southern California ever since. As a young man, Robert was active in Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts, and earned his Eagle Scout award in the minimum time. He was also active in Student Government, which earned him a trip to the American Legion sponsored Boys' State. Robert graduated from Manual Arts High School in 1951 and received an L.A. Times scholarship to attend Pepperdine University, where he majored in business and accounting. While a student at Pepperdine, he supported himself by working the swing shift at Northrop Aircraft Co., building F-89's for service in the Korean War. Following his graduation from Pepperdine in 1955, he began his career as an accountant with Samuelsson & Co., where he soon earned his credential as a Certified Public Accountant. After a few years at Samuelson, he ventured into the world of small business as one of the founding partners of Robinson & Billings in Lancaster, Calif. After successfully building that business for three years, he sold his interest and moved to Pasadena where he rejoined his old partner Marty Samuelson, whose company had been merged into one of the "Big Eight" accounting firms, Arthur Young and Co. Robert soon made Partner in Arthur Young, now Ernst & Young, and continued to rise through the ranks, both within the company and within his profession. His clients were ranked among the top industrialists, developers, entertainers, and athletes. In 1979, he was appointed to the California Board of Accountancy, and in short order was elected as President of the Board. Following his service at the state level, Robert continued to be active as a member of the Board of Directors of the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy. In 1992 he retired from Ernst & Young and started his own accounting firm once again. Robert was active in a variety of social and charitable organizations throughout his life, including the Lions Club in Lancaster and the Rotary Club in Beverly Hills. A trumpet player throughout his school years, he also served on the Board of the Master Chorale of the Music Center of Los Angeles. Perhaps one of his greatest joys was as a member of the Southern California Food and Wine Association, where he was able to socialize and enjoy the many benefits of being a "foodie" before that term was invented. Robert was also a long-time member of the Jonathan Club in Los Angeles, and particularly enjoyed their Beach Club in Santa Monica. Robert is survived by his beloved wife of 36 years, Janet Suzanne Billings; his brother, Wayne, and sisters, Evelyn and Lenetta his four sons, Michael, Dennis, Brian, and Neil; and five grandchildren, Nick, Ben, Kayla, Marlena and Annalise. The family will hold a private Celebration of Life at a later date.

Sandra Blackburn

On Saturday, Oct. 2, 2010, Sandra Blackburn, 64, passed away unexpectedly in Chelsea, Mich. Born Sandra Mary Melichar in 1945 in Crete, Neb., she was but 16 years old and a high school student when she first met 21-year old Robert Blackburn. She earned her diploma from Neligh High School in May of 1963. Seven months later, on Dec. 14, 1963, before a modest gathering of 20 guests at the Methodist Church in Neligh, Sandra Melichar became Mrs. Sandra Blackburn. The newlyweds'' first home was a rented basement apartment. Sandy gave birth to their son, Rob in 1965 - daughter, Paige arrived in 1967. Bob was busy getting a college degree and worked with long absences from home. Sandy took to the daunting task of childrearing single-handedly. In 1978, Sandra Blackburn graduated with honors from the University of Nebraska Nursing School as a Registered Nurse. Bob''s career forced relocation a total of 15 times during their marriage, with the family hop scotching through nine cities and four states. They arrived in Orange County, Calif., in 1980. After a 10-year career in nursing, Sandra''s final position was that as Head Nurse at a geriatric health care facility in Laguna Nigel, Calif. The family moved to Cambria in 1990 to open a second facility of Bob''s family''s business, Blackburn Manufacturing. Sandy left nursing to become an integral part of the business for the next five years. In December 1999, she was diagnosed with inoperable lymphoma of the liver and was given months to live. She was referred to an oncologist in San Luis Obispo and promptly began an intensive regimen of chemotherapy. She attributed her subsequent complete and seemingly miraculous recovery to her personal lifesaver, physician, Dr. Daniel R. Lewis. In 2003, Bob and Sandy moved for the fifteenth and final time. They built their dream home in the coastal mountains west of Templeton, from where they hosted memorable holiday dinners for friends and family. Sandy was known as a superb cook with a creative bent for improvising any and all recipes. She also was an accomplished quilter and produced many heirloom pieces over the years. Her great gift to her close friends was her unstinting compassion for others and a self-deprecating sense of humor that endeared her to everyone she met. She was a voracious reader and an astute and tireless literary advocate. Sandra Blackburn is survived by her husband of 46 years, Robert Blackburn; son, Rob Blackburn of Paso Robles; daughter, Paige Nasland of Atascadero; mother, Mrs. Elnora Person of Wahoo, Neb.; sister, Cindy Rodgers of Colon, Neb.; brother, Bill Salisbury of Yuma, Ariz.; and grandchildren Evan, Ethan, Zachary and Jessie Blackburn of Paso Robles.

Information: (805) 434-5667. Let Me Go When I come to the end of the road And the sun has set for me I want no rites in a gloom filled room Why cry for a soul set free? Miss me a little but not for long And not with your head bowed low Remember the love that once we shared Miss me, but let me go...

William Miller

William Jack Miller was born April 1, 1930 in Danville, Ill. The son of Homer and Agnes Miller, Jack was the third of four boys. Oldest was Gerald then Edward, Jack and Melvin. Jack grew up a true country boy playing and working in the fields of Danville and winning ribbons for his horse riding and roping from a very young age. He also found himself becoming a young entertainer singing with his aunt Virginia on a weekly radio program., But his life really began to change when he joined the Navy right out of high school in 1947 to see the world. Jack found many fond memories as a crew member of the USS Missouri - the Mighty Mo. Fighting in the Korean war he traveled throughout Asia as well as Europe. It was during those long voyages that he taught himself to play the guitar. He was a true fan of Country Western music and was so thrilled to have discovered that you could play nearly any country song using only three cords., He landed in many exotic ports during his time in the Navy but he found the girl of his dreams, Jeanne Semaria, right back in the USA on a blind date in 1950. It was in August of that same year that they were married, the beginning of 60 wonderful years together. They were married in Norfolk but soon moved to Jeannes hometown of Brooklyn, N.Y. Their first child, Cherie, came along in 1953 and two years later it was Debby, then Brian, and then Danny born in 1969., While living in New York, Jack put that guitar to good use and played in a Coney Island Honky Tonk called The Eagle Bar under the stage name "Billy Jack." Not only could he earn a little extra money to help raise his young family, but he was able to do something he loved in the process. It was the spring of 1968 when Jack decided to move his family west for a better life (and to get away from the cold winters!). Having worked multiple jobs those first couple of years, he finally landed at Los Angeles County Medical Center where he worked for 20 years before retiring in 1990., The last 20 years Jack has spent with his sweetheart and watching his 11 grandchildren grow. He and Jeanne traveled to many places around the world and particularly loved taking cruises racking up 19 cruises altogether from Alaska to Greece. In addition to traveling, he loved working in his garden, trips to Las Vegas, reading western novels and joke books and of course playing his guitar for his family, a memory that will never be forgotten., Jack died Oct. 15, 2010 after a very brief battle with cancer.
