He returned from one of his many ski trips one weekend and met his new tenant. Coming all the way from Pennsylvania, she had moved into the apartment complex he built and owned over the weekend. They both knew immediately. They dated, they married. They purchased their dream home. He gave up skiing because he wouldn’t risk injury now that he was a married man and would have a family to support. They camped, they fished, they clammed and rode their dune buggy at Pismo Beach. He helped found and was a member of the Galivanters, the Elks camping group. He was an Elk for 72 years and a PER, (a Past Exalted Ruler). They raised their son and daughter. They often took clothes to people in need in Mexico in addition to the numerous service projects they provided to the community through the Elks club. He was a cement contractor and improved their home with many additions including a wine cellar, an RV storage, and a built-in BBQ area. Mom was a capable administrator of dad’s business. He was devastated when she passed about seven years ago. Now they are together again.
