Her family thrived, and the School thrived, both in such large part due to her personal, warm and human attention to detail, to substance and to spirit.

Delores BERG

BERG, Delores On November 18, 2010 Delores Berg, beloved wife of fifty-seven years of Roger Berg, passed away after a lengthy illness. (After Delores' first date with Roger, she told her brother Harold and sister-in-law Shirley, she had met the man she was going to marry.) Delores was an accomplished artist and received many awards for her sculptures and collages. But her greatest reward is what she gave to others, which was her laughter and joy that she brought to many lives. Delores' greatest passion was her family and friends. Delores was a valued volunteer at the L.A. County Museum of Art for over thirty-seven years serving in many capacities, for which she received a certificate of excellence from the Museum Service Council, Department of Indian Art. Of special interest to her was the "Evening for Educators" which handled documentation for education sent to the teachers of Los Angeles. She was also an active benefactor to the L.A. County Museum of Art, as well as to U.C.L.A. Chancellor's Group, Ahmanson Theatre Group, U.C.L.A. Athletic Organizations, and the National Council of Jewish Women. Delores was also honored as a "treasured volunteer" by Castle Heights Elementary School to which she brought art in the form of "hands on learning" and through her organization "ABC" (Art Bridges Culture) for which she received an additional award, a "Certificate of Appreciation" from Palms Elementary School (at which her daughter Karen is a teacher of some 27 years). In addition, she was also an active benefactor of the Wonder of Reading Library at Palms Elementary School. Delores' teaching of art in the elementary schools culminated in receiving from the President of the U.S.A. the highly regarded "Volunteer Service Award." Particular joy came to Delores in her eminent psychologist daughter Beverly receiving a doctorate in the "Philosophy of Psychology," the first doctor in the family. She was also very instrumental in supporting Karen in the completion of her Masters Degree in Educational Administration. Delores is survived by her husband Roger, daughters Karen Marks and Beverly Berg Wry, sons-in-law Sandy Marks and Brian Wry, grandchildren Daniel Marks and his wife Liron, Jordan Marks, Ruby Wry, Carlos Hernandez (wife Alicia) and Leslie; the last two are the children of her beloved household manager of thirty years, Blanca Estela Pena. Additional family are sisters Mir Schlosberg and Lilli Gardner (husband Harold) and brother Harold (wife Shirley) as well as the families of her many nieces and nephews. Charitable contributions in her honor may be sent to the donor's choice of charity - although Delores was particularly taken by the "Smile Train" charity where all those involved including doctors, are not paid in restoring the disastrous effect of "cleft palates" in children throughout the world. Her other favored charities were Defenders of Wildlife, UNICEF, Smithsonian Institute, Doctors Without Borders, Amnesty International, National Organization for Women, KCET, Program for Torture Victims and the Maple Counseling Center, among many other needy organizations locally, nationally and world-wide. The memorial service will be held on Sunday, November 21, 12:00 p.m., at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in the Bing Theatre located at 5905 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles, 90036. Valet parking provided.

Dustin Stanley Fields

On Tuesday, Nov. 9, 2010, Dustin Stanley Fields decided not to wake up while on a business trip (not gambling, ironically) in Las Vegas. Dustin was a skater, magician, musician, rock climber, mountain biker, poker player, writer, SCUBA diver, photographer, basketball player, triathelete, tennis player, sarcastic SOB and more, but paid most of his debts by crafting software as a multinational professional elite software engineer for IQMS in Paso Robles. Dustin was an autodidact (look it up), obtaining his many degrees from the vast number of books he consumed, from Voltaire to Robert Anton Wilson to Douglas Hofstadter. He traveled the United States, Mexico and Asia and worked for a time in New Delhi, India for a non-governmental organization. He was a connoisseur and devotee of Pearl Jam (the rock group), attending more concerts than Eddie Vedder finished, and remembering the lyrics better than Eddie, too, which could possibly be they were under an influence. He played guitar and bass better than his father and most of his friends, and loved all kinds of music, including Mars Volta, the Beatles, YES, Led Zeppelin, Van Morrison, Bella Fleck and the Flecktones, and [insert your favorite band here]. He loved music. Dustin was so generous to share his love for music, especially his love of Pearl Jam, with anyone who knew what was good for them. He lived every day with a Pearl Jam melody in his head and the meaning of the lyrics in his heart. Even if sometimes he "sees man as half empty or sees them half of s**t, thinking that we''re all but slave, living out our days", he always remembered and was the first to say "we''re all just practicing, and this world''s an accident, and we''re all fools because we thought the world, but it turns out the world though we. It''s all the other way ''round... it''s upside down, but there is an upside of down." He is survived by everyone else on the planet with a pulse, but will be especially missed by his devoted mother Michelle Tucker; bio-dad Jim; second favorite sister Denise; nephew Eli; brother in law Ryan; (his other second favorite) sister Aryn; third-brother Rene Sanchez; .0125-sister Zoe Walker; stepmentor Ellen; cousin Eric (brother from another mother); best friend Troy; and novia Michl (la Tuerpa) Osio. The hundreds of relatives, friends and followers who will remember his wit and charm could have been found on his Facebook page, if he hadn''t thought Facebook a total waste of time. The friends and family that Dustin leaves behind will miss him for the rest of their lives. However, a refrigerator magnet in his apartment reminds us "he is watching, give him a good show."

Ed Pawlan

April 27,1927 - November 10,2010 After living a very fulfilling 83 years, Ed quietly passed away at his home in Cloverdale, Wednesday night, November 10th. He grew up in Chicago raised by both his Lithuanian immigrant father and surrounding relatives. He became a U.S. top rated breaststroke swimmer while attending 8,000 students, Austin High School. But, at the age of 17 snuck his way into the merchant marines, where later he joined the U.S., O.C.S. program to eventually rise in rank to 2nd Lieutenant while serving in Korea prior to the war. Upon returning to the states while at Chicago University Hospital, he met, dated, and then eventually married a lab tech by the name of Mary Ann Falknor. He eventually graduated from Bradley University, with a B.A. and Masters in psychology and education. Ed and Ann settled in at a rural Illinois town where he served as both teacher-principal and had their first child, Bob. In the mid 50's the family resided in Southern Texas where Ed taught and coached swimming and where Sara entered the world. In 1958, after accepting a teaching job in Cloverdale, rather than Fairfield, the family moved to Northern Calif. where Ed taught, coached and settled his family to complete his 35 years as a teacher. Here, their 3rd child David, was born. In Cloverdale he coached some football and basketball, loved to play tennis and referee basketball later in his life until his knees could no longer take it. Many a time phone calls were made to the house asking for his advice on civic and school related matters from both council and school board members. His greatest pride and accomplishments were "sharing" his vast knowledge of world history, geography, and American problems with his students in a very enthusiastic, engaging, unique manner. Many students at first entered his classroom doors with dread, but soon walked out with much admiration, respect and fond memories. Who of you out there can quickly name the capital of Bulgaria or the five tribes of the Fertile Crescent? Many of these same students later became his adult friends. He with wife has traveled in Siberia, walked up to penguins in Antarctica, and safaried in Africa. Ed is survived by: Ann, his wife of 60 years; sister Lorraine of Nashville; son Bob of Rohnert Park; grandsons Brett in Tenn, and Drew of Syracuse, daughter Sara (Ron) Thissen in Riverbank, kids Brad and Leslie in Eugene, son David (Widya) in Copenhagen and kids Dhika and Paramita, and grandson Masana in L.A. His remains will be cremated and cast into the sea as per his wishes.

Eileen Molinski

Eileen Molinski may have died of cancer, but her spirit will live on in the lives of those she touched. A first-generation American whose mother came from Kilkenny, Ireland, she always had a smile or a kind word of advice to random strangers. "She's a pistol" or "she's a firecracker" were common ways of describing her. She told it like it is, and everyone loved her for it. Whenever today's modern world didn't quite meet her standards, she just rolled her eyes and said, "Whatever!" She jokingly said that "whatever" should be on her tombstone when she dies. She is survived by her husband of 49 years, Michael Ralph Molinski; and by her four children, Michael Molinski, of Petaluma, William Molinski, of Los Angeles, Diane Rose, of Charlotte, N.C., and Daniel Molinski, of Caracas, Venezuela; and seven grandchildren, Nicholas, Nathan, Haley, Hannah, Holly, Connor and Keira. Eileen was the last survivor of 10 children, born in Orange, New Jersey to Benjamin Rawnsley and Catherine "Kitty" Malone. A big fan of old-time Hollywood, perhaps her favorite quote in life was "This too shall pass," from Gone with the Wind. Her point was that we shouldn't dwell on the problems we face, because they always have a way of being reduced over time. She was a graduate of Immaculate Conception High School in Montclair, N.J., and was a secretary for Westinghouse. But of all her accomplishments, she was most proud of raising her four children. On a shoestring budget, she sent all four to the University of Southern California and to successful careers in journalism, business and law. She bragged about all of them until the day she died. Finally, she cared for her husband for 20 years, who has Parkinson's disease, until the final month when she was no longer able. She could often be seen on the streets of Petaluma, pushing his wheelchair to breakfast. A funeral will be held at St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church, 35 Liberty St., in Petaluma, CA, 94952, at 11:00 a.m. on November 24th, followed by a burial service at Pleasant Hill Memorial Park, 1700 Pleasant Hill Rd., Sebastopol.

HARRSEN, FRED May 4, 1920 to November 13, 2010 Fred Harrsen died at home on Saturday, November 13th, after a long illness. Fred was the son of Richard and Marjorie (Lovely) Harrsen. A native San Diegan, he was born May 4, 1920 at Mercy Hospital. He was graduated from La Jolla High School in 1937. Fred served in the US Navy during, onboard an LST, fighting in more than ten Pacific landings. Later he was stationed on submarines. When Fred returned, he married the "girl almost next door" Rowena (Joan) Drake. They were wed in Pacific Beach in August 1946 and celebrated their 64th anniversary this year. Fred fished for tuna aboard ships that went to sea for months at a time. He then became a proud member of the merchant marine as he worked on harbor and sea going tugboats. Through self-study he attained his professional licenses. He worked his way up to chief engineer aboard tugs towing barges between California and Alaska. Fred was one of those mechanically inclined men who could build anything or repair anything. Professional electricians and plumbers would praise the quality of his "do it yourself" home projects. It wasn't until his 80s that he was convinced to stop climbing on the roof or crawling under the house. His interest and skill in mechanical things translated to computers. He took quickly to e-mail, digital photography, and scanning old documents. When he was mostly confined to home, he kept up with the world by downloading material to his new electronic book reader. Fred is survived by wife Joan, daughters Judy Parker, Susan (Dennis) Mar, and Cynthia (Skip) Noble, grandchildren Jeff, Shelley, David, Alicia, and Heather, five great-grand-children, and five great-great grandchildren, sister Lillian (George) Webster, and cousin Gwendolyn Marinos.

Garry Hodson

Garry Lee Hodson Resident of San Jose Sept. 22, 1933 - Nov. 15, 2010 Garry Lee Hodson passed away unexpectedly Nov. 15. The consummate mechanical engineer and fisherman, beloved by his family and friends, he was always ready to share his skills and fishing expertise. Garry was born September 22, 1933, in Kokomo, IN, to Oscar and Marguerite Hodson. He and his parents spent his early years on his grandparents' farm. Lacking childhood playmates, his dog Brownie was his constant companion as he began his lifelong passion of fishing. His brother Bob joined the family in 1945. As a child, he moved to Speedway, IN, eventually graduating from Speedway High School where he played football as a lineman, had a paper route, and was an Eagle Scout. On a recent trip to Indianapolis, Garry was delighted to find pictures of his 1950 championship football team on the wall at an Applebee's restaurant. An airplane buff, his original plan was to be a pilot, but color blindness got in the way. He held a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Kettering University (formerly General Motors Institute), Flint, MI, attended graduate school at the University of Cincinnati and was a licensed Professional Mechanical Engineer in the State of California. He was employed as an aerospace engineer in Indianapolis and Marietta, GA, and in 1965 began his 30 plus year career in aerospace and nuclear energy for General Electric Corporation in Cincinnati, OH. Garry moved with GE to the Nuclear Division in San Jose in 1975 and retired for the first time in January 1996. Retirement didn't last long, and Garry returned to the workforce first as a project engineer at Lockheed Martin Corporation in Mt. View, followed by principle engineer at GE Nuclear, and mechanical design engineer at Westinghouse Corporation. Garry would often say his biggest life change came when he met a red-headed Pi Phi from Butler University on a blind date. She wasn't his date, but he managed to wrangle her phone number, and life was never the same. Garry and Gerri Lathrop were married May 2, 1959, in Indianapolis. Garry and Gerri are the parents of four children, two girls and two boys - the perfect family for Garry. His life totally centered on his family and his love of the outdoors. He was active in Boy Scouts with the boys, camped and water skied with them, served as an adult counselor with the Methodist youth fellowship, back packed across the Sierras, and tried to make fishermen out of them. When grandchildren came along, life was complete. He was always happiest when surrounded by his family. Garry enjoyed fishing in the Hat Creek area, drift boat trips down the Sacramento, family weekends at the beach, camping, attending musicals and museums, and traveling worldwide. Garry was a member of the Willow Glen United Methodist Church, the Flycasters of San Jose, the Atom Club, and the GE Elephants. Garry is survived by his wife Gerri, children: Holly Nielsen, Kristie Friedenberg (Howard), David Hodson (Christine), and Michael Hodson (Tiffany), grandchildren: Jeff and Colleen Nielsen; Jon, Megan and Sarah Friedenberg; and Tyler and Brett Hodson; and his brother Robert Hodson of St. Louis. A celebration of life will be held Nov. 23 at 10:30 a.m. at the Willow Glen United Methodist Church, 1420 Newport Avenue in San Jose. A reception will follow. In lieu of flowers, donations are suggested to the Capital Campaign (for the restoration of Wood Haven) at the WGUMC, address above.

He and Barbara moved to the Morro Bay area in 1995 and after 40 years as an electrician, retired. He volunteered with Homeless Animal Rescue Team (H.A.R.T.) and became a Morro Bay Police Volunteer.

Gary D'Anna

Born Sept. 23, 1945 - Died Nov. 11, 2010, Gary D'Anna was born on Sept. 23, 1945 at Bayridge Hospital in Brooklyn, New York, to Phil and Tina D'Anna. A small card announcing his birth reads, very simply, "Mother Feeling Fine, Father Very Happy." His mother, Tina D'Anna, was feeling so fine, in fact, that she went on to enter one of his baby pictures in the New York Mirror Charming Child Contest the following year. There is no indication that the photo was chosen as the winner, but it is obvious that Gary had successfully charmed the first in a very long line of people., The oldest of four children, Gary grew up in Massapequa Park, Long Island, until his family moved to Orange County in a 1957 Ford Station Wagon, when he was 12. An avid Dodgers fan, Gary always proudly proclaimed that he had attended games at Ebbet's Field in Brooklyn, and when the Dodgers made their own move from New York to California in 1958, Gary could be heard to brag that they did it to follow him., Gary met his wife of 38 years, Mary, at a Catholic singles dance in Los Angeles. As the story goes, Mary reluctantly went to the dance only at the urging of her mother, who felt she should be out meeting new people. Gary was a new person, and when he saw Mary across the dance floor, he was immediately smitten and wasted no time asking her to dance. She said yes, and the rest is history. They were married on Dec. 2, 1972, and went on to have three children: Janelle, Mark, and Allison; and three grandchildren: Taylor, Nikolai, and Peighton., A virtual genius when it came to numbers, Gary got his accounting degree from Cal State Long Beach, and then followed with a Masters in accounting from Cal Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks. He went on to become a successful CPA at Hughes Aircraft, and he owned his own thriving tax preparation business., He worked tirelessly for many years to provide a beautiful home in Thousand Oaks for his family, but still found ample time to attend family soccer games, baseball games, to take his kids trick or treating, attend dance recitals, take his family on vacations to places like Lake Tahoe, Yosemite, or even Hawaii, and basically do anything and everything his kids asked of him., Like any CPA, Gary was always very good with money. Those who knew him best will tell you that he was always thinking about the best ways to invest his money, in order to ensure that he got the most out of what he earned. But Gary was not greedy and he rarely, if ever, spent his money on things for himself. Nearly every penny earned was saved for his family, and because of Gary's smarts, his wife and kids always had food on the table, and a roof over their head. Gary put his three children through college, and even helped them buy their first homes. Even in his later years, when his children were grown and earning money of their own, he never ceased worrying about whether or not his family would be provided for after his passing., Gary's obligations as a father, husband, and provider were something that he did not take lightly. Selflessness such as the kind he displayed in his lifetime is a very rare thing, and something for which Gary's family will be eternally grateful. In his later years, Gary enjoyed occasionally gambling, playing bingo, and sneaking scraps of food from the dinner table for his dog, Charlie., And his prowess with money was not dulled by the years. If you were buying a new car, you brought Gary along to negotiate. If you were refinancing a mortgage, you ran the numbers past Gary first. If you were looking for a way to get a little extra money back on your tax return, Gary would be first in line with advice., But despite his business acumen, it was abundantly clear to all who knew him that his world revolved around his wife, three children, and his three grandchildren. Even when he wasn't able to get around as well as he once had, one of his greatest joys in life was heading to the park to watch his granddaughter Taylor play soccer. His children are his legacy in this world. They were the center of his life, and they were the reason he worked so hard for so many years. Today his children are comforted by the knowledge that Gary will be looking after them in death, as he did in life., On Nov. 10, 2010, Gary's favorite sister-in-law, Christina D'Anna, traveled from Arkansas to Simi Valley to bring comfort to Gary and his family. Gary died peacefully in his home and surrounded by family the very next morning. It seemed as if Gary had waited for Christina's arrival before starting his passage to Heaven., He is survived by his wife, three children, and three grandchildren., The D'Anna Family would also like to take this opportunity to thank Tracy Luchies for the four years of devotion and care she showed Gary. Tracy spent as much time as anyone with him over the last four years of his life. It was not always an easy task keeping up with Gary, but Tracy's patience and compassion bordered on the saintly, and Gary's family is eternally grateful for the uncommon degree of care and love she showed him during those most difficult years of his life., In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be sent to Livingston Memorial Visiting Nurse Association and Hospice: 1996 Eastman Avenue, Suite 101, Ventura, CA 93003., Rosary services will be held at 7 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 18 at Griffin Family Funeral Chapels: 101 E. Wilbur Road, Thousand Oaks, CA 91360. Funeral services will be held at 10 a.m., Friday, Nov. 19 at St. Peter Claver Church, 5649 Pittman Street, Simi Valley, CA 93063., Arrangements made with the assistance of Griffin Family Funeral Chapels, Thousand Oaks, 230-2800.

The family struggled financially under the direct care of her mother, Mary Helen Walker, but was centered in love and the resolve to better their lives. Johnnie was a rugged girl that could stand her ground with any of her brothers; in fact she was the protector in the family. She married at an early age in 1932 to the love of her life, Bennie Edwards. They made their home in Shreveport for the next eleven years, then in 1943 they decided to leave Louisiana and move to California to seek a better life for themselves and their children. They settled in Los Angeles for the next four years. In 1947 they decided they wanted to raise their children in a more rural environment, thus they purchased property in Mead Valley, California and built their home to raise their children. Johnnie B. always desired to have a spiritual life, thus she joined New Hope Baptist when they first moved to Mead Valley. Several years after that, the Lord led her to fellowship with First Baptist Church Perris and she soon moved her membership. She has been a member for more than 50 years and has served in many capacities, including singing in the choir, working with the missionary society, and serving on the mothers\' board. Johnnie and Bennie were married for 62 years before she lost her beloved husband in 1994. Johnnie was a housewife for most of her life. She worked in the defense industry for a short time during the war; otherwise, she was focused on raising her children. She was preceded in death by two sons, Alfred Edwards of Perris and Mack Edwards of Los Angeles. She is survived by her other 5 children, Bennie Edwards of Compton, Earnest Edwards of Perris, Charles Edwards of Perris, Gwendolyn Felix of Riverside, and Rev. Clarence Edwards of Los Angeles.

MaryAnn (Regan) Spencer

died peacefully Thursday, Oct. 21, 2010 in Grass Valley, Calif. She was 73 years old. Her family has planned a memorial in Eureka, Calif. at Christ Episcopal Church for 2 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 20 with a celebration of her life following at the Ingomar Club. Born in Des Moines, Iowa on June 16, 1937 to Leo and Wilma Regan, MaryAnn lived with her family in various states throughout the Midwest, moving to follow her father's career in the banking industry. Leo's work eventually brought the family west to Oregon. MaryAnn attended high school in Drain, Ore., graduating in 1955. MaryAnn attended Stephens College in Columbia, Mo., for her freshman year and transferred to Humboldt State College where she earned a degree in Home Economics with a secondary teaching credential. While studying at Humboldt, MaryAnn met her future husband Robert (Bob) Wayne Spencer. They were married in Eureka at Christ Episcopal Church shortly after their graduation in June 1959. The newlyweds relocated to San Lorenzo, Calif. so that Bob could attend dental school at the College of Physicians and Surgeons University of the Pacific and MaryAnn could accept a teaching position in the Hayward School District, and they began their family. They later moved back to Eureka where Bob established his dental practice and MaryAnn was a mother to their three children, teacher, community volunteer and quiltmaker. MaryAnn's community involvement spanned nearly 50 years and often combined her passion for education and traditional quiltmaking. She was a founding member of the American Quilt Study Group, an organization formed in 1980 to research and present aspects of the history of the American quilt and to introduce the public to the idea that quiltmaking is an important part of our heritage. She then joined the feasibility study and eventual formation of a board in 1983 to record the history of California quilts and quiltmakers, spending seven years canvassing the state to record stories of in-migration and cultural history/diversity. Her work with the California Heritage Quilt Project culminated in a book titled "Ho For California" and a touring museum-style show of quilts featured in the book. Once a teacher always a teacher, MaryAnn taught quiltmaking through Eureka City Schools adult education program and returned to the classroom for several years as a grandparent volunteer, tutoring and mentoring first grade students in math and literacy. MaryAnn also expressed great pride in the work of the Humboldt Area Foundation during her 15-plus years of affiliation with HAF. She actively participated in and led several committees, and was the first Program Officer of HAF, traveling the region to visit grant applicants and support the staff and board in making grant decisions. Her belief in HAF's mission led her to establish memorial scholarship funds in honor of her parents and later for her husband Bob who passed in 2006. In addition, she greatly enjoyed her involvement with such organizations as the Union Labor Health Foundation, Redwood Capital Bank, Vector Health, Humboldt Sponsors, and Redwood Empire Quilt Guild. And, she frequently made and donated quilts to provide comfort to youth experiencing crisis situations. MaryAnn was preceded in death by her parents and husband. She is survived by son Scott Spencer and daughter-in-law Lorri Spencer of Grass Valley, Calif.; daughter Sarah Spencer Guglielmo and son-in-law Joe Guglielmo of Paso Robles, Calif.; daughter Kati Spencer of Tempe, Ariz.; and grandsons Kyle Spencer, Zach Spencer, Andrew Guglielmo and Dominic Guglielmo. The family has suggested that, in lieu of flowers, contributions in memory of MaryAnn may be sent to Humboldt Area Foundation at 373 Indianola Road, Bayside, CA 95524 or online at

Ryan Scott Townsend

passed away unexpectedly at his home in Cutten on Saturday evening, Nov. 13th, 2010, at the age of 36. His loss is a shock to everyone who cared for him, and his family sends out their hearts to all who are grieving with them. Ryan is survived by his young son, Miles; his parents, Elena & Bruce Pettit and Kent & Johnna Townsend; his siblings, Kellie Townsend, Alison Pettit, Luke Gretchen and Julie Gretchen Bailey; his grandparents, Clif and Alice Gomes; his uncles Gary Gomes and Lynn Townsend and aunt Lois Christie. Miles was the true light of Ryan's life. Ryan was a devoted father who enjoyed nothing more than spending time with his little guy. Ryan was born San Diego, CA on Oct. 25, 1974, and moved to Humboldt County when he was just 7 months old. With legs built like redwood trees, he grew up running around in the woods near HSU with his older sister and the neighborhood kids. He was rambunctious, athletic and pretty much fearless, which led to a lot of adventures and a few trips to the hospital. He loved skiing and hiking among other things. Ryan's family remembers him as a tender-hearted guy, an amazing parent, a daredevil, a gruff sweetheart. Ryan attended Sunset Elementary School and Jacoby Creek before moving to Trinidad. He graduated from Trinidad School and McKinleyville High, where he lettered in soccer and baseball. Baseball led him to College of the Siskiyous and to a season with the Humboldt Crabs. He had recently reconnected with his love of the game through a recreational league. In addition to his family, Ryan has a enormous circle of friends that are mourning his loss. They unfailingly describe him as generous, sweet, kind, easy-going and family-loving. They say that he really cared about and looked out for his friends, that he talked about his mom a lot, and of course that he loved his son more than anything. He was also reportedly a terrible cook, but luckily, his friends were equally generous with him. A trust fund has been established for Ryan's son, Miles. Please contact Kent Townsend at 443-9848 or Elena Pettit at 840-0505 for information. A gathering will be held in Ryan's honor at 1:00 pm on Friday, Nov. 19th, at Marryman's beach house, Moonstone. Bring your open heart and your best Ryan stories. Please sign the guest book at

William Andridge After a courageous and determined fight against leukemia Bill finally succumbed on November 16, 2010. Bill was born on June 22, 1944 to Esther and Theron Andridge in Battle Creek, Michigan. The first twenty years of his life were spent growing up in Battle Creek. In 1962 he graduated from Lakeview High School. These years laid the foundation for his sturdy Mid-West principles that would never leave him. In 1965, like so many others, Bill moved west and landed in Mill Valley. Despite those Mid-West principles this would mark a love affair with Marin County and the Bay Area. It was in 1965 that Bill met Tony Houston and this would be the beginning of a 45 year friendship of the strongest sort. Bill attended College of Marin and received his A.A. degree in 1966. Unfortunately he also received his draft notice that fall. From 1967 until June of '69 Bill proudly served his country in the U.S., . The last 13 months were spent in Vietnam. In the fall of 1969 he started towards a Business degree at SFSU. After college Bill found himself working for the U.S. Postal Service. A few years later, Bill came to the conclusion that this wasn't for him. The decision was made to enter the business world. Software sales were first but soon he settled into his real passion: banking and finance. Here he found great satisfaction with his accomplishments. Bill's unflinching integrity made him the perfect Loan Officer for a loan and advice. Mid life crisis? Nope! Bill examined his life and decided to make some changes. He quit drinking and smoking. No 12 step program, just quit! What better reflection on his strength of character than that. Bill's passions and interests were many. Bill loved to hike the many trails of Mt. Tam and pheasant hunting at his Black Point Club. He loved to wet the fishing line while sitting on a dock and conversing with his friend Tony, jazz would be playing and the world's problems would be solved. Story telling is an art and Bill was an artist. Every one looks for a great sale but Bill was the master. When you went anywhere with Bill you always were able to park in front! For Bill's extended family they always thought of Uncle Bill when looking for that elusive parking spot. More often than not, it worked. He had many wonderful relationships; none as meaningful as his beloved Ruth Perez. Bill and Ruth spent many years of comfortable companionship. His devotion to his mother, Esther, was a role model for everyone. Tom Nowell, who was a father to Bill for most of his life, was a great inspiration to Bill and they spent many a happy day at Tom's cabin at Clear Lake. Bill was preceded in death by his father, Theron. He is survived by his mother, Esther, Thom Nowell II and his three sons, Tom III, Ronnie, and Dan (Sean) Nowell, and Beverly and Tony Houston and their seven children to whom he was always Uncle Bill. If you want to make a donation in Bill's honor please consider his favorite charity Warm Wishes ( To all of Bill's many friends there will be a celebration of Bill's remarkable life. The date and location are pending.
