He also enjoyed fishing and camping. Some of his fondest memories are from camping trips at Frenchman's Lake and Mc Swain Reservoir. He loved to troll fish for trout, but would fish for anything if the fish were biting. Born in Henrietta, OK, he moved to California as a child during the Dust Bowl. He lived in Riverbank and Oakdale most of his life. He worked at Circle AW Products in Modesto for many years.

Williams) died peacefully in her sleep of natural causes October 8, 2010 at her home in San Mateo, California, at age 94, under the care of her daughter Mary Anne Williams. Eleanor was well known in San Mateo County where she worked for over 25 years as a Social Worker in foster home placement, and as a juvenile probation officer. Eleanor was born in Ogden, Utah, and attended elementary school there before moving to Salt Lake City, Utah, with her parents, George Walker Barlow, and Marilla Hunter Barlow, where she graduated from East High School. Quite precocious, she entered the University of Utah at age 15 and graduated in 1936 with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology. She obtained a Graduate Degree in Social Work at the University of Utah in 1943, while working as a WW-II Red Cross case worker and raising her first two children, Robert and Stephen. An avid skier, she had met and married another skier and University of Utah graduate, Frank P Williams, in 1936. They raised and are survived by a family of 5 children, Robert Williams-San Jose, CA; George Stephen Williams- Red Bluff, CA; Frances Williams Spear- Chico, CA; Janet Williams Youngblood-Idaho Falls, ID; and Mary Anne Williams-San Mateo, CA. Eleanor is also survived by six grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren, and by her sister Marilla Barlow Bagby of Litchfield Park, Arizona, and her deceased brother's wife, Mary Brown Barlow, of Philadelphia, Pa. Eleanor, Frank, and family achieved a major dream by moving from Utah to Northern California in 1955. Settling first in Salinas, California, they moved to San Mateo, California in the Fall of 1956 when Frank obtained work in San Francisco as a Chemical Engineer and process design engineer with Western Knapp Engineering (WKE). WKE specialized in plants for processing non ferrous minerals such as copper and uranium. For about 25 years, Frank, WKE, and later A.G. McKee (acquired WKE) designed and built numerous plants in the Western US and Australia. Eleanor pursued her career in San Mateo County Social work, while Frank built processing plants until both retired to their San Mateo home in 1981. Eleanor had a life long interest in music and education, and will be remembered by her friends and family for her intelligence and her cheerful good humor.

Eugene Nutley M.D.

Eugene Nutley M.D., 1927 - 2010 Eugene Nutley passed away August 27, 2010, in Redding, California. He was the loving husband of the late Mary Louise (Mary Lou) Nutley and father to four sons. Gene was born December 26, 1927 in Washington state, the youngest of three sons born to Victor and Mable Nutley of Seattle. He grew up and attended schools there, graduating from Roosevelt High School, the University of Washington and finally from the School of Medicine in 1954. He served in the Navy as a Flight Surgeon before completing his residency and settling in Redding in 1962. He was a practicing orthopedic surgeon from 1962 to 1989. As a boy, Gene had a natural talent for singing and sang in church choirs or small groups, and he also played guitar. He spent much of his time outdoors, fishing, skiing, backpacking and camping in the mountains and forests of Washington and Oregon, and later, working as a lookout for the Forest Service. In 1953 Gene married Mary Louise Zimmerman, who he had met at the Mountaineer's Mt. Baker Lodge in Washington. They dated exclusively for some years, but Gene didn't feel ready to propose until he was sure he would graduate from Medical school. After serving in the Navy and finishing his residency at the University of San Francisco, the couple decided to move to Redding because of the opportunities to be outdoors, the small community atmosphere and because the area was just beginning to develop to the point where medical specialists were setting up practices there. Gene entered into partnership with Drs. Eugene Padel and Michael Hamilton. In his work as a surgeon, Gene was respected for the accuracy of his diagnoses and his willingness to be available at any hour of the day or night. He also was wary of new technology, preferring to use the tried and true methods he was accustomed to. The hospital staff even awarded him the "Knife, Fork and Spoon Award," a plaque with mismatched eating utensils from the hospital cafeteria, in honoring of his strict adherence to the basics. Gene and Mary Lou returned many times to their beloved Pacific Northwest, vacationing at Lake Chelan or at the vacation home they owned for several years on Orcas Island. At the end of the 1980s, Gene decided to retire from private practice to spend more time with his wife, a decision he said was the best one he had ever made. Together, Gene and Mary Lou went on long trips to far-off destinations, going to many countries in Europe, traveling up the Yangtze River in China and even voyaging to the Falkland Islands and beyond to Antarctica. He also took over cooking duties at home, reading cookbooks for new methods and flavors, but usually creating his own dishes from scratch. He was a member of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival at Ashland and the San Francisco Opera, attending productions for as long as he was able to do so. He was active with a local "Bridge Club," a group of good friends that he had socialized with for many years. He also stayed in touch with life long friends from Washington State. Gene's wife Mary Lou passed away in 2004. His survivors include his sons Dale, Leonard and Charles of California and Timothy of Oregon; three grandchildren and his beloved dog, Andy. At their request there were no formal services, donations can be made to the Turtle Bay Museum, Riverview Playhouse or the Northern Valley Catholic Social Services.

John had been a retired resident of Palm Springs for a dozen years, having previously lived in the Los Angeles area where he was an actor.

He acted in many different productions at The Palm Canyon Playhouse, Groves Cabin Playhouse, The Hi-Desert Playhouse, The McCallum Theatre and The Arthur Newman Theater at the Joslyn Center. He most recently appeared in "The Sunshine Boys" at the Joslyn. One of his favorite plays was "Visiting Mr. Green" and he appeared in three different productions of it. John was almost on a yearly basis a nominee to receive The Desert League's Award for Outstanding actor. He won the honor several times. He will be missed by his large circle of friends and fans.

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 www.coral.org or Shark Savers www.sharksavers.org.

The family's roots originated in Normandy, France. The family subsequently emigrated to Franconia, New Hampshire. The family eventually settled out west and ended up in Lakeport, CA, where he was born and raised. Known for his positive attitude and spontaneous sense of humor, he carried those attributes from childhood into his adult life, most of which was spent in Sonoma County where he raised his family. Bob was an athlete at Clear Lake Union High School where he also excelled as a student and musician, having played trumpet in the three time all State Band Champion Band. He was able to earn some extra spending money as a member of a local dance band. He learned the lessons of hard work as a boy, as his mother and step-father owned a walnut ranch on Konocti Mountain where he and his brothers worked when not in school. He graduated from High School in 1931 and attended Modesto Junior College before beginning a career in the retail, then wholesale grocery business. Dorothy Johnson, a pretty young lady from Glendale, CA, captured Bob's heart that led to their eventual marriage. She became his best friend and companion for over 66 years.

Two years later he became the commercial sales manager for Henry Veale, Veale Motors, one of the first Volkswagon/Porsche dealers on the west coast, and later became general manager of the thriving dealership.

He retired in 1989, the business was sold, and has since become one of the largest manufactured home dealers in California. His son Bob said, "I don't believe my father ever had an enemy in the world. He was always humble, honest and cared about the people he knew and came in contact with." Family was always important. He and Dorothy purchased one of Hugh Codding's first homes where they raised their two children, Bob of Sun River, Oregon and Karen Wilson of Eureka, CA. He was preceded in death by his wife, Dorothy, his sister Harriet Covey, and two brothers, Cal Burpee and Al Burpee.

He will also be missed by his great grandchildren Lauren Kulik, Jack Kulik, Hayden Wilson and Ashlyn Wilson. In Addition he leaves his daughter-in-law, Mckenzie Burpee and son-in-law, Jerome Wilson. he was especially fond of Bob Kulik and Heidi Wilson.

Rosemary "Pete" Moreno

Rosemary "Pete" Moreno October 10, 1947 - October 23, 2010 After a short battle with lung cancer, Rosemary Moreno rose to Heaven wrapped in the arms of her family on October 23, 2010. Greeting Rosemary in Heaven were her parents, Cayetano and Vicenta Garcia and her brother Danny. Rosemary was devoted to her family; her husband of 42 years, Carlos Moreno, her daughter Mia Moreno, and her son Carlo Moreno and his wife Lori. And her heart was filled with love for her grandchildren Gabrielle, Aaron and Christian. Rosemary's parents nicknamed her "Pete" before she was born, hoping their fourth child would be a boy. But the nickname stuck and she was "Pete" to all who knew her. As a child, Rosemary was the clown of the family, always making her sisters laugh. She worked hard along with her sisters, picking potatoes for spending money and helping her mother clean house, tend laundry and rake leaves. And as a wife, Rosemary continued working hard for her husband and her children. She was a talented hairdresser, leaving her career to care for her family. She provided her family a beautiful home, delicious meals and a garden filled with flowers. Her home was her haven she shared with those she loved. A gracious hostess, she held parties for her family with music, food and dancing in her backyard under the stars. These special times will remain in our hearts always. Rosemary leaves behind her five sisters: Adela Abdul, Penny Garcia, Margaret Ritorto, Aurora Catania and husband Robert, Valentina Garcia and husband Jeff Wiebe. She also leaves behind nieces and nephews Gina and Michael Ritorto, Andrea and Daniel Garcia and many friends and in-laws that loved her. Viewing will be Wednesday, October 27, 2010 at Greenlawn Cemetery, 3700 River Boulevard from 4pm to 8pm with Recitation of the Rosary being held at 6pm. Mass will be performed for Rosemary at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, October 28, 2010 at Our Lady of Perpetual Help on Columbus Avenue. Private burial will follow at a later date. Our family deeply appreciates the love and tenderness shown to Rosemary by her daughter Mia during Rosemary's illness. Mia showed unyielding strength and devotion to her mother, never leaving her mother's side. Our sweet and funny Pete, may Heaven provide you all the peace and beauty you deserve.

William Hans (Bill) Nelson (In Memoriam)

In Loving Memory of William Hans (Bill) Nelson October 25th, 1926 - November 8th, 2009 It's been nearly a year since our beloved husband and father Bill passed on, and many have been the times when his influence has been felt in the lives and thoughts of all who knew him. His engaging personality has been a great example of how all are worthy of a kind word, a smile or a wink. His bold ability to make fast friends of strangers invites each of us to take opportunities to make new friends each day. Traditions and customs he brought into the lives of his family and friends live on as we carry them forward in our own families. Advice and counsel given long ago still serve to steady us as we make important choices and decisions in life. Bill's influence is still profound, and blesses the lives of all who knew him, even today. May those who knew him read this memorial and take a moment to reflect upon a fond experience shared with him and be inspired, uplifted, or gladdened. That's how he would have it!



William Hastings and Ruth Denney

William (Bill) Hastings Denney March 28, 1920 - October 22, 2010 A joint memorial service is scheduled for Saturday, October 30, 11:00 a.m., at RiverLakes Community Church to celebrate the life of Bill Denney and his beloved wife of 69 1/2 years, Ruth Denney, who preceded him in death by just five days. Bill was born on the original Denney Homestead in Beaverton, Oregon. He was the 5th of six children born to Robert Benjamin Denney and Margaret Asbahr Denney. During the great depression, his first job delivering the evening newspaper began at the age of six. From his early teens on he worked steadily, baling hay, milking cows, to help support the family. At the age of 18, he became the family spokesman and obtained a loan to purchase what became the Denney Brothers Dairy. Bill and Ruth's only courtship consisted of her riding along and helping him deliver milk. They were married April 25, 1941. Shortly after the end of WWII, the dairy was sold and Bill joined his brothers to form the Denney Logging Co. The logging business took them to various places on the West Coast, ending up in Kernville, CA. During his years in the lumber industry his real passion was doing God's work in local churches. Upon retirement from logging in 1974 Bill and Ruth moved to Bakersfield, CA where he joined the ministerial staff at Fruitvale Community Church (now RiverLakes Community Church). Until his death, he was active on the church board. Love, kindness, generosity and wisdom epitomized his life. Bill is survived by sons Clifford (wife Connie) and Bill (wife Theda); daughters Harriet Schaad (husband David), Kathryn Forshey-Trabert (husband Tom) and Margaret Kiltz; 15 grandchildren; 29 great grandchildren; one great-great grandchild; and the last of his siblings, his youngest sister Lorraine Denney Olsen. He was preceded in death by his wife, Ruth, father Robert Benjamin Denney, mother Margaret Asbahr Denney, and numerous other family members. A joint graveside service will occur on November 20, 2010 at the Crescent Grove Cemetery in Tigard, Oregon. Memorial contributions may be made to RiverLakes Community Church. Basham Funeral Care

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.
