Woolworth Company in Bremerton Washington, Arlys met her future husband Richard who she married Oct 1, 1955. The Woolworth company is what brought the newly weds to Southern California. They moved their home first to Santa Paula, Reseda, Anaheim, Norwalk, Buena Park and finally Lompoc in 1969 (via the old Surf Beach train stop). For many years Arlys attended Queen of Angels Catholic Church where she and her family worshiped and dedicated their time and talents.

In the 1980's she, with two partners, opened a business called "A Royal Touch Catering". She had a wonderful flair for making designer cakes, specialty candies, and delectable foods known throughout the Lompoc area. In her retirement years Arlys enjoyed spending time with her family and friends. She was a member of the Half Century Club of Lompoc where she loved (absolutely loved!) to play Bingo. She also enjoyed trips to Las Vegas and the Chumash Casino. As she neared the end of her journey, Arlys especially enjoyed spending time with those she loved including her children, grandchildren, and great grand children. Arlys is survived by her four children Terri (Louis) Rockvam, of Louisiana, Gary (Teresa) Wuitschick of Lompoc, Greg (Dolly) Wuitschick of Lompoc, and Toni Salas of Lompoc.

His sense of humor was reflected in the delight he took in teasing his siblings as adults, just as he had as children. His love and concern for his family was matched only by the devotion bestowed upon the family Golden Retrievers. His most joy filled moments were spent wrestling with them, or accompanying them on long adventurous walks along Orcutt Road, or the beach in Morro Bay. Michael''s other favorite moments included family holidays, and his annual travels in the company of his mother, Jeannette. He considered these trips to be great adventures with his best friend, as they explored and photographed much of the Southwestern United States. Michael will be remembered and missed most especially for his intelligence, playful humor, warmth and generosity, and the love displayed by his smile and strong warm hugs. He is survived by sisters Candace and Sharon; brother Patrick; sister-in-law Sharon O''Hara; nieces Meghan Sapp and Briana Sapp; aunt Dorothy Davidson; uncle Jim Beecham; and many cousins. He is also greatly missed by his Golden Retrievers, Mika and Luci. Michael was preceded in death by brother Richard 1949. Graveside services will be held Thursday Nov. 18 at Los Osos Valley Memorial Park. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations are made to the ASPCA, or Golden Retriever rescue.

Michael Raphael Sheeran (Ray Sheeran) Passed away peacefully in the loving care of his family and friends in Cazadero, CA on Sunday, November 14, 2010 after a courageous eight month battle with Melanoma. Ray was in his 54th year. He is survived by his loving wife Catherine, a native of Mountrath, Co. Laois, Ireland and their sons Ryan, Eoin and their daughter Maeve and by his mother Maura, brothers Gerard, John and Mark, sisters Geraldine, Jacqueline, Therese and Frances, brothers and sisters-in law, uncles, aunts, nieces and nephews. Ray will also be sadly missed by Catherines family who took Ray to be one of their own. He was predeceased by his father Canice and Aunt Vera. Ray was born October 23, 1956 in Coolrain, Mountrath, Co. Laois. A passionate sportsman, he won many medals and trophies with his local Hurling club, Camross and his County team Laois. He also played rugby with Portlaoise, and soccer with The Pike of Rushall. Ray had a love for music, especially Irish Traditional music and song and in the early days played the banjo before moving on to his grandfather Ryans instrument, the fiddle. Ray emigrated to San Francisco in February 1982 and married Catherine, his wife of 26 years, in San Francisco in 1984. They had known each other from home and were destined to be together. Family, work, sport and friends continued to be as important to Ray in the States as they had been in Ireland. He played Hurling with the Rangers Hurling Club and was a founding member of Na Fianna Hurling Club using the same colors of his native Camross, the Black and Amber. This club went on to be one of the most successful clubs in North America with Ray playing his part in winning their first Senior Championship in 1990. Rugby was also a great passion of Rays and he went on to be a founding member of San Francisco Irish RFC which subsequently merged with the San Francisco Golden Gate Rugby Club, which developed one of the best underage programs in the USA. SFGG Ruby Club, has renamed their Home Club and Grounds as 'The Ray Sheeran Field', in recognition of Rays commitment and dedication to the sport. Over the years Ray became part and parcel of the fabric of San Francisco and Cazadero and was well known in both places. He and his family were surrounded by old friends and the many new friends he made along the way. They have proved to be ever supportive, especially during his time of need. It was recently commented that the Sheeran family were not just good friends but a cultural experience. Family, friends and living life were ingrained in Ray and this was something he wanted to share with those he loved. His priority was his family and he was immensely proud of his sons Ryan, Eoin and his daughter Maeve. Catherine has been his rock throughout the years and has been by his side through this difficult time. Ray Sheeran was an inspiration to his family and friends and will be sadly missed by all.

Sylvestre "Sly" Rodriguez, Sylvestre "Sly" Rodriguez passed away surrounded by his family and loved ones on November 11, 2010. He was born on March 6, 1966 to Julia and Jesus Rodriguez in Santa Maria, California. He attended elementary and junior high schools in Guadalupe and later Righetti High School where he was a member of the Marimba Band and Ballet Folklorico. He was also on the wrestling team and was a student worker at Righetti's Sword and Shield Restaurant. While still in high school he worked part time at the Basque House in Guadalupe where he was inspired to one day open his own restaurant. After graduating from high school in 1984 he moved to Santa Barbara to pursue this dream and enrolled in Santa Barbara City College where he studied Culinary Art and Hotel-Restaurant Management. While completing his studies he worked at State and A Restaurant where he quickly worked his way up to management. He was the first in his family to pursue a college degree and his siblings tried to help him financially; he refused to cash their checks choosing instead to challenge himself to make it on his own., After earning his degree in 1987, he was offered a promotion to General Manager of the Hudson's Grill Restaurant in Irvine, California. Under his direction, the once struggling restaurant thrived again in less than a year's time. This success led to the opportunity to return to his hometown as General Manager and Partner of a new Hudson's Grill location in Santa Maria. He oversaw every detail of Hudson's from its construction to hiring and training new staff. At the young age of 22 he had achieved his childhood dream and applied the same determination and enthusiasm to operating his new restaurant as he had to his studies. He was often seen in the kitchen making sure every order was flawlessly prepared and making rounds from table to table checking in with patrons. His hard work paid off and Hudson's Grill quickly became a success and the place to be. Hudson's was known for its curly fries, Cinco de Mayo festivities and the red Hudson convertible which had "crashed" through the kitchen wall. By 1998 he bought out his partners and became the sole owner; his dream had officially been achieved., He shared his success with countless community programs and charities. He regularly supported local organizations like the Righetti High School Marimba Band and Ballet Folklorico, and numerous local schools. He was an active member of many organizations including The Boys and Girls Club, the Kiwanis Club, The Elk's Mutton Bustin', Optimist Club, and most recently the Righetti Boosters Club., In 1991 he married Lourdes Espinoza. They welcomed their son Julian in 1994; a much anticipated addition to their family. Sly enjoyed attending and supporting Julian's multiple sports activities. They shared a love for the Los Angeles Dodgers and often attended baseball games together. Julian was his pride and joy and Sly never missed an opportunity to share his son's accomplishments with his friends and family., Sly was also an avid fan of the Los Angeles Lakers and enjoyed teasing his brother David when they beat the Boston Celtics. He loved listening and singing to Mariachi music, especially to Vicente Fernandez songs, and often dressed in the traditional Mexican "charro" attire when performing at various events. He never failed to make his way to the dance floor at every social gathering and frequently was the last one to tire. He often barbecued for family events and liked to introduce us to new and different foods., His family fondly remembers his enthusiasm and passion for life. He commanded the attention of the entire room as he shared his stories in his usual animated fashion. He organized games for his nieces and nephews like potato sack races, musical chairs, and "Simon says." He taught them how to dance, played practical jokes on them, and never missed an opportunity to shower them with praise and words of encouragement. The eldest of his nieces and nephews knew him as "Tio Tete" and as children often followed him around vying for his attention, which he gave to them freely., We'll never forget the kindness with which he treated everyone he encountered, the energy and zest with which he approached everything he did, and the hard work he employed towards pursuing his goals., He was preceded in death by his father Jesus T. Rodriguez, grandfather Natividad Solis, brother in law Hector Ramirez, and niece Beatriz Ortiz., He is survived by his son Julian; his mother Julia; his grandmother Francis Solis; his brothers and sisters Salvador, Beatriz, Maria, Jesse, Diana, David, Raul, Rosalinda, and Felisa, and their respective spouses; his previous spouse Lourdes; 22 nieces and nephews; 28 grand nieces and nephews; and numerous cousins, aunts and uncles., Visitation will be held at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church on Tuesday November 16th at 5:00 pm followed by the Recitation of the Holy Rosary at 7:00 pm. The funeral mass will be held on Wednesday at 10:30 am followed by interment at the Guadalupe Cemetery., Our family would like to extend special thanks to the Guadalupe Fire and Police departments for their assistance and for giving us an opportunity to say our final good-bye; and to Marian Hospital staff for their understanding and accommodations., Arrangements are under the direction of Moreno Mortuary.

Mae was very known for her kindness and generosity for others. She always made sure no one went hungry. She truly was that "One in a Million"! She retired in the early 1970's and lost her husband suddenly. She continued to care for her elderly parents until they passed. She lived next door to her daughter Vera, and cared for her through her nine year struggle with Alzeimhers. Vera passed in 2007, and Mae moved to Missouri to live with her brother Gene in 2008. He would drive her to visit every year, and just last spring she was still dancing and enjoying life. She became suddenly sick with cancer and returned to Phoenix to be cared for by her daughter Francis and son-in-law John Holt. God took her gracefully within 3 weeks of being diagnosed. She is so loved, and will be always be remembered for her true unconditional love and devotion to her family and friends. She also was a dedicated member of Church Of Christ Riverview.
