Diane's Multi-Million $ House Estate Sale!

This home belonged to a very special couple. They were married for 70 years! He died in 2016 and she joined him just two short years later. His early passion for amateur radio led him to a 25-year career with the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in La Canada. As Deep Space Network manager for the NASA Apollo Moon missions during the 1960s, he was part of the planetary tracking and communication team that brought Neil Armstrong’s famous “one giant leap for mankind” message to the world. She earned an amateur radio operator license and served as secretary of one of the largest female ham radio clubs in the U.S. She sold two books to major U.S. publishers and was a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. She was also a devoted painter, photographer and world traveler—hobbies she enjoyed sharing with him. Their travels took them on a cruise of Russia’s Volga River, a hair-raising train trip along Mexico’s Copper Canyon, a South America/Antarctic cruise that crossed Cape Horn during gale force winds, and a 10,000-mile RV trip across the U.S. They were longtime members of the La Canada Presbyterian Church.
