He was one of the first Indian-born entrepreneurs in the wireless industry; and started several cellular companies in the US. with successful bets on emerging telecommunications trends. He was one of the quietest angel investors in Silicon Valley; never turning down a request for help and ever-generous to his friends in need.

He was a true original--a business maverick, a rare mind, bold actor, visionary thinker.

His intellect was abounding. He loved philosophy and politics, and thrived on learning. He had friends around the world who grieve his loss and were touched by his special brand of gregarious debate. Few will forget his 2 a.m. 2000-word e-mails , ranging from politics, to religion, to mathematics and music.

He loved entertaining and music, and would get so carried away by his favorite songs that he couldn't help but play them on the keyboard. Fortunately for everyone, he possessed perfect pitch.

His memory lives on with his wife, Rani, whom he married in Ludhiana, India in 1974 and by his daughters Raina and Anisha, his brothers Bharat Kumra and Rajesh Kumra, his sister Renu Duggal, and his father Ram Kishan Kumra.

In lieu of flowers, donations are accepted. The Kumra family will send these funds to charities working with families of homicide victims. You may donate at http://www.gofundme.com/1lp1o0.

Lily Beth Appleton Lily Beth Hanson Appleton
August 4, 1917 - November 3, 2012
San Jose, California

Interment: Devil's Lake Cemetery, Devils Lake, North Dakota.

Lily Beth Appleton passed away peacefully in her sleep while under hospice care in her residence in San Jose, California, with her younger son at her side. She was 95 years old.

She was born in Goodland, Minnesota, second eldest of five children. Her parents, Martin and Inge Hanson, emigrated from Norway in their late teens. She grew up on their family farm near Sweetwater Lake in Devils Lake, North Dakota. From the earliest age she was interested in education, read extensively and dreamed of seeing the world. She was a tomboy, rode a pinto pony and claimed she could outride and outshoot any of the boys in town.

She worked her way through Minot State Teachers College earning a BA in Elementary Education and taught at Greybull, Wyoming, then Spokane, Washington. In 1943 she entered into the Women's Army Corps in Seattle, Washington. She had been hoping to be sent to Europe but instead went to the Pacific Theatre and served in the Philippines, Australia, New Guinea, Korea and Japan. She developed a passion for Japanese culture that lasted her whole life. She attained the rank of Sergeant and was awarded the Asiatic Pacific Campaign Medal, American Defense Medal, World War II Victory Medal and Good Conduct Medal.

While stationed in Korea, she met Richard B. Appleton, a Captain in the US Army, married him and bore him two sons in Tokyo, Japan. Thereafter they both worked for the Department of Defense as civilians. Mr. Appleton worked his entire career as a contract lawyer for the US Army Corps of Engineers while Lily Beth taught for the Army Dependent Schools. This included three years in Athens, Greece and ten years in Livorno, Italy, so her dream of seeing Europe was finally fulfilled.

Upon their return to the USA in 1966, she taught 6th grade at Taylor Elementary School in Arlington, Virginia, until her retirement in 1982 at which time she and her husband retired to Lakewood, Devils Lake, North Dakota. In retirement she and her husband travelled extensively visiting India, Hong Kong, Japan, Australia and numerous other countries.

Upon the death of her husband who is buried in the Devils Lake City Cemetery, she relocated to San Jose, California, where she could be near her younger son and his family. She and her husband had an enormous collection of books, which she donated to the Lake Region Community College when she moved to San Jose.

Lily Beth never lost her love for humanity and most especially for children and also for understanding other cultures and languages. She was an inspiration to her many students, some of whom remained in touch with her until this day. She was very creative and loved to paint and write. She also enjoyed acting in Little Theatre, equestrianism and playing golf. In 2006 at the age of 89, she went on a trip back to Italy with her younger son Brian and grandson Luke where she was the only faculty member to attend a school reunion at Camp Darby where she had taught in the postwar years and was able to reconnect with 27 old friends and former students.

During her time in California, she was generous with her love and devotion to her grandchildren and will be sorely missed by all of them. She touched many people's lives with her humanity, generosity and constant love for learning. She was politically liberal and egalitarian, believed in democracy and had respect for the working man and people from all walks of life and ethnicities. She also had a deep love of nature.

Per her request, internment will take place at the City Cemetery of Devils Lake beside her husband at a later date.

Joe played tennis at West Valley and later persevered to be ranked in the State of California. Joe did not marry, but stayed with many church activities: pen pal to a young girl in China, leading services in the Rescue Missions, children's ministry and the sound booth weekly. Joe joined the Home Church in 1982. Joe considered the members of the church his family and Joe was a faithful Christian and loved Jesus with all his heart. When Joe was little he often sang. As an adult, Joe was always singing solo or along with praise and worship tapes. Joe worked most of his life as a computer programmer and landed a dream job in January 2011 at an international company. He enjoyed his work. In October 2011, Joe was diagnosed with cancer. With the expertise of Dr. Steven Scates, Joe fought the disease with courage and humility. Before he succumbed to the disease, he exhibited a grateful spirit and expressed his sincere thanks for all the relatives and friends who visited and prayed for him. Joe will always be remembered as a gentle, caring spirit with a great love for children and a deep faith in the Lord.

Joe is survived by his step-father, Jack Ruch; a brother, Jeffrey Kern; two sisters, Susan McCaughan and Patty McCaughan Ford; and step-mother, Velma McCaughan. Joe had a niece, Megan Harcopian; a nephew, Maxx I. Ford; many other nieces and nephews, Wendy, Jennifer, Shannon Kern, and John Scott Kern; along with many cousins in California and Texas.

The family would like to express their sincere gratitude for the excellent care Joe received from all the staff members of Good Samaritan Hospital. A special mention goes to the Staff of Almaden Health and Rehabilitation whose dedication and diligence in daily caring of Joe will always be remembered and greatly appreciated. The kindness, care and thoroughness of both facilities were exemplary examples of superior patient care. In addition, the staff and members of the Home Church all went beyond the call of duty and service in being truly supportive, loving and prayerful toward Joe, exhibiting their true Christian beliefs and faith.

Our loving mother passed peacefully on to join dad and our brother Marc in heaven on Mother's Day, having lost her long battle with breast cancer. She spent her last days at her home in The Villages with family and friends who helped her find her way to eternal rest.

Marianne is survived by her sons, Carlo (Nyack, N.Y.) and Ron and his wife Niamh (Los Altos, Calif.); her brother, Robert and his wife Donna (Los Gatos, Calif.); her sister, Geraldine (San Jose, Calif.); grandsons, Giancarlo and Joseph and her granddaughter Christina Maire; nieces, Gerrie Ann Bannister (Teresi) and Kelly Horan (Teresi); nephews, Joe Teresi, Dr. Louis Teresi, Matthew Teresi and Todd Teresi and their many children and family members. She was preceded in death by her loving husband of 21 years, Pellegrino (Pal) Pellegrini; her youngest son, Marc; her parents, Joseph A. and Clara Teresi (Saratoga, Calif); and her older brother Dr. Joseph Teresi of Milwaukee, Wis.

Born in Saratoga on the fruit ranch owned and operated by her father, she was a part of the valley's history that has so quickly faded from view. Picking and processing apricots for drying, helping her mother feed the ranch hands, and helping her dad with daily chores were all a part of her early life's experiences. She was also an accomplished performer as a young girl, studying ballet, developing her acrobatic skills, and taking acting classes in Saratoga from the mother of actresses Joan Fontaine and Olivia de Havilland. After attending Los Gatos High (class of '42), she went on to receive her degree from the O'Connor Hospital School of Nursing in 1948 and became a surgical nurse, working in that same hospital until her marriage in 1951.

A widow for nearly 40 years, the great memories we all have come from the years in Palo Alto, beginning in 1952 when mom and dad opened and then operated Pellegrini's Crescent Pharmacy in the old Whiskey Gulch district of Palo Alto. As active members of St. Albert the Great parish community and school lifelong friendships were built and nurtured that survive to this day. Great times with great people. She created and managed a beautiful home and provided her family with all the care and love that anyone could ever hope for in a lifetime. After losing her husband in 1972, she relocated to the Oak Creek Apartments in Palo Alto where for the next 25 years she was at the center of all things tennis. It became her passion and both her physical and social outlet and created yet another new group of close friends with whom she enjoyed life to its fullest. Transitioning to The Villages in 1998 gave her yet another venue to exhibit her tennis skills and she played every day until her 80th birthday, making more great friends along the way, especially her caring neighbors Jan Holland and Shirley Roberts.

She will be missed and loved forever.

She was born Alberta Ennis Jones in Marshall, Missouri, September 29, 1915. The family moved to San Jose in 1925 and eventually numbered seven children. Her sisters Irvina Fammatre and Janice Dion, both of San Jose, and her brothers Leland Jones of San Jose and Gayle Jones of Fremont survive her. She leaves twenty nieces and nephews. She was a graduate of San Jose High School ('32) and San Jose State College ('36) where she was elected Student Body Secretary her senior year. In July 1939, she married Richard H. (Ky) Martin of Redwood City.

In the spring of 1941, Mr. Martin (Stanford '36) enlisted in the Navy and was on active duty at Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941 - the day she was to have sailed to Hawaii to join him. During the war years, she accompanied him to various stateside postings throughout the US. She supported our veterans all her life.

Following the war, she had two sons, Joseph (66) and Richard (64). In 1949, Mr. Martin was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, and passed away in 1960. In 1949, she joined the faculty at Sequoia High School, and later taught at the brand-new Menlo-Atherton High School, where she taught business subjects from 1951 until she retired in 1980.

Over the course of her long teaching career, she was a strong positive influence on hundreds and hundreds of lives, teaching young women the skills they needed to have successful and productive business and professional careers. She was an inspirational teacher and a tireless worker, teaching both night school and summer school year after year, in addition to her normal teaching duties. Upon retirement, she served as Secretary and later as President of the Menlo Park Garden Club for many years. She was a Member of the Menlo Park Presbyterian Church since 1956. She was also a member of Theta Alpha Delta Sorority for businesswomen.

For herself she always set the highest standards and never failed to meet them. In her dealings with others, she was modest and generous, ethical and fair. Her kindness, sense of humor and generosity were evident in all that she did. She was a natural-born leader, and helped countless people find the courage they needed to alter the course of their lives for the better.

She was a loving and devoted daughter, the World's Greatest Mom, and a beacon of sanity and stability to everyone she met. All her long life she drew strength from the life and example of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

She leaves two sons, Joseph of Manassas, Virginia, and Richard of San Jose and his wife Elisabeth; four grandchildren, Kisha, Gareth, and Christina Martin, all of San Jose, her grandson Matthew and his wife Brandy Martin of Hollister, and Richard and Alyssa Martin; her two great-grandchildren, also of Hollister.
