Editor's note: Mountain View Patch begins a new feature, one that allows us to take note of the passing of members of our communities in Mountain VIew. This is in addition to the obituaries that we run with permission of Cusimano Colonial Mortuary.
The chronicling of the lives of these individuals, who lived and worked among us, originally appeared in one of the following publications: The San Jose Mercury News, San Mateo County Times, Auburn Journal/Gold Country Media Newspapers, and Eureka Times-Standard.
