I very fond memories of your Dad when I worked with him at Environmental Health - we started to work for the county the same day. He was a wonderful man.

Our hearts go out to you both. Though we haven't seen much of him in the years since he retired from SCEMD, he is never forgotten - we run across his signature on paperwork nearly every time we research the removal of an underground storage tank in the 1980s and early 1990s. He is remembered fondly. Our sympathy to his family. His former colleagues at Sac County EMD
