Funeral Mass: Saturday, January 3, 2015, 10:30 a.m. at Church of the Ascension, Saratoga, CA.
Interment: Scatter at sea off the coast of Santa Barbara County, California.

Angelica Maria "Kekah" Rodriquez, daughter of Noe & Maria De Jesus Rodriquez, survived by brother, Adrian Noe Rodriquez, nephew, Santiago Adrian Rodriquez, and niece, Mariah Andrea Rodriquez, was born in Santa Clara on February 17, 1979 and passed away in San Jose on December 23, 2014 at the age of 35. She will be dearly missed by all of those who knew and loved her.

Angelica enjoyed the simple things in life and would often say she was easily amused. Making wishes on dandelions, shaking a snow globe, playing video games and watching football were some of her favorite activities. She loved with all of her heart and no matter what relationship she had with someone – be it family, friend, or more, she gave her all and then some. She was proud of her heritage and faith, and always stayed true to who she was. Her loyalty and strength were qualities she sought out in others and, by example, she helped those around her find that in themselves. She was a teacher at heart, both personally and professionally, and the lessons she has taught will stay with us forever.

May God grant her peace and may she rest among the angels who have protected her through all of her days.

A Funeral Mass will be held at 10am on Saturday, January 3 at Church of the Ascension, 12033 Miller Ave, Saratoga.

Angelica was preceded in death by her mother, Maria Rodriquez.

Frank greeted the world on February 4, 1938 in San Jose, California. Both of his parents were from Northern Italy, from the area of Genoa. Frank, a devoted husband to Charlene, passed away on October 7, with his loving wife of 54 years at his side until the very end.

He served in the army during the Vietnam era as a military policeman, and received an honorary discharge with commendation in sharp shooting.

During his earlier years he was involved in the business of the San Jose Scavenger Company initiated through the effort of his father and maternal grandfather who were instrumental in starting this business. He was the youngest member on the board of directors and held up as a leader. This same perception of his personality was expressed throughout his life.

Frank’s interests included anything to do with cars, also restored cars, and cars displayed at Italian festivals. Having an inherited gene for love of Mediterranean food, Italian and Greek Festivals were sought out. He loved lamb shanks! He was known as Mr. Garden of Eden for his lush and varied garden species, lawns and flowers and his hand manicuring style of maintenance.

Politics, finance, current events and travel were other special interests. Working as a team of pilot and co-pilot, and at times taking tours, Charlene and Frank traveled extensively in all of Europe, British Isles, Scandinavia, Africa, Greece, Israel, China, and parts of the U.S. During his retirement from Santa Clara County GSA, traveling included pilgrimages.

Frank’s fluent Italian added additional pleasures in Italy, Spain, and Portugal and his ability to adapt and knowing what to do in any circumstance or emergency made their travels possible, safe, and enriched their lives.

Along with being courageous, he also possessed a profound sense of justice; a man of integrity, who stood by his word.. At times, he defended those unable to defend themselves. These values were instilled in others who had contact with him. Frank has been called a true gentleman.

Charlene thanks you for being a part of his life and honoring him by your presence today.

Jack A. McCarthy was born September 6, 1924 in Sacramento and raised in Oakland. He told many happy stories from his youth including biking to and from San Francisco and boating at Lake Merritt. In 1943 Jack enlisted into the Army and as a Paratrooper, 17th Airborne, was stationed at Fort Benning, Georgia. It was there that he met the love of his life, Virginia Bassett, while on a blind date at a USO dance. Shortly after, his unit was called to duty overseas to engage in what became known as The Battle of the Bulge. Jack sustained a serious head injury, but with his strong spirit and much rehabilitation he was able to return to the States to marry his southern bride on July 7th, 1945. He was awarded a Purple Heart and a Bronze Star for his contributions to this battle.

Jack earned his degree from a business college in Berkeley and worked various professions until he settled into the insurance business.

Virginia was born April 16, 1925 and raised in LaGrange, Georgia. She was studious and musical, loving to read and play the piano. Virginia earned her first college degree in LaGrange as a young woman and returned to school in her late forties to earn her Master's Degree in Speech and Audiology and Teaching Credential in Special Education. She worked for years in Gilroy as a teacher of children with learning disabilities. She was always interested in learning new topics as well as cultivating a healthy lifestyle and encouraging her family to follow suit.

Both Jack and Virginia retired in their late fifties to enjoy their country home in Morgan Hill. Gardening, traveling, and spending time with their six grandchildren were among their favorite activities.

After sixty-nine years of marriage and within two months of each other, they each passed peacefully at home surrounded by their loved ones. Jack passed away on July 23, 2014, and Virginia passed away on September 17, 2014. They were both laid to rest at Madronia Cemetery in Saratoga. They lived well, with honesty, honor and integrity and they are deeply loved and missed in return. They are thought of daily by the family left behind: daughter, Joan Burchfiel (Robert) of San Jose; son, Allan McCarthy (Laura) of Morgan Hill; daughter, Lynn Mazzola (Tony) of San Carlos; and grandchildren, Patrick Burchfiel, Justin and Garrett McCarthy, Carli and Jillian Kuehnis, and Valerie Mazzola.

John "Jack" A. and Virginia B. McCarthy

Jack A. McCarthy was born September 6, 1924 in Sacramento and raised in Oakland. He told many happy stories from his youth including biking to and from San Francisco and boating at Lake Merritt. In 1943 Jack enlisted into the Army and as a Paratrooper, 17th Airborne, was stationed at Fort Benning, Georgia. It was there that he met the love of his life, Virginia Bassett, while on a blind date at a USO dance. Shortly after, his unit was called to duty overseas to engage in what became known as The Battle of the Bulge. Jack sustained a serious head injury, but with his strong spirit and much rehabilitation he was able to return to the States to marry his southern bride on July 7th, 1945. He was awarded a Purple Heart and a Bronze Star for his contributions to this battle.

Jack earned his degree from a business college in Berkeley and worked various professions until he settled into the insurance business.

Virginia was born April 16, 1925 and raised in LaGrange, Georgia. She was studious and musical, loving to read and play the piano. Virginia earned her first college degree in LaGrange as a young woman and returned to school in her late forties to earn her Master's Degree in Speech and Audiology and Teaching Credential in Special Education. She worked for years in Gilroy as a teacher of children with learning disabilities. She was always interested in learning new topics as well as cultivating a healthy lifestyle and encouraging her family to follow suit.

Both Jack and Virginia retired in their late fifties to enjoy their country home in Morgan Hill. Gardening, traveling, and spending time with their six grandchildren were among their favorite activities.

After sixty-nine years of marriage and within two months of each other, they each passed peacefully at home surrounded by their loved ones. Jack passed away on July 23, 2014, and Virginia passed away on September 17, 2014. They were both laid to rest at Madronia Cemetery in Saratoga. They lived well, with honesty, honor and integrity and they are deeply loved and missed in return. They are thought of daily by the family left behind: daughter, Joan Burchfiel (Robert) of San Jose; son, Allan McCarthy (Laura) of Morgan Hill; daughter, Lynn Mazzola (Tony) of San Carlos; and grandchildren, Patrick Burchfiel, Justin and Garrett McCarthy, Carli and Jillian Kuehnis, and Valerie Mazzola.

John Jason Gale passed away peacefully in his sleep on May 6 in Torrance. He was 93 years old.

Born in Chicago and raised in Sioux Falls, SD, Jason moved to Southern California at 18 when he learned there was an opportunity to attend junior college for five dollars a term there. While attending Long Beach City College, he worked as domestic help for Congressman and Mrs. Clyde Doyle, who motivated him to go to law school.

Jason then attended UCLA for his undergraduate work until he enlisted in the Army Air Corps the day after Pearl Harbor was attacked in 1941. He became an aviator in the Army Air Corps and was deployed to Foggia, Italy upon graduation from flight school. He served as a bombardier in a B-17 in World War II and was awarded The Purple Heart after being wounded during one of his initial missions, later returning to complete 34 missions over Germany and Austria. He was also awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom and a third medal for his heroic efforts.

When World War II ended, Jason resumed his education at UCLA and also resumed his romance with the love of his life, Paula Ann Betz, whom he married in 1947. They were married until her death 61 years later. He enrolled in Loyola University Law School in Los Angeles, where he earned a Juris Doctor. He and his wife had three children, Janice, Jason Jr., and Stephen.

Commencing his career in private practice as an attorney in Los Angeles, Jason later served as a civilian attorney for the United States Navy in San Diego. Joining The Aerospace Corporation as assistant general counsel in 1962, Jason spent 17 years there before retiring early to expand his private practice. He specialized in wills, estates, trusts, probate, and corporate law until he retired in December of last year as one of the longest-serving lawyers in the history of the California Bar.

Jason was active in many Southern California causes over the years. He served as president of The South Bay Bar Association and was a founder of the federal chapters of the American Bar Association in Beverly Hills and San Diego. He was a Trustee of Southwestern Law School in Los Angeles, and also served as a trustee of the Providence Little Company of Mary Medical Center Foundation for nine years, after which he was named Trustee Emeritus. Jason was a 49-year member of the Palos Verdes Breakfast Club, where he served as president in 1985. He was a long-time member of the Palos Verdes Tennis Club, where he also served as president. He and Paula were avid world travelers for most of their time together.

After being inspired by television’s Dancing with the Stars, Jason took up swing dancing at the age of 90, attending regular dances across Southern California until his unfortunate physical disablement last year.

Jason’s survivors include his daughter, Mrs. Janice Gale Silva (James); his son, Stephen Gale (Sin-Wee Koh-Gale); his grandson, William James Silva; and his great-grandson, Parker James Lee Silva.

A memorial service for John Jason Gale will be held at 1 p.m. on May 15 at The Neighborhood Church 415 Paseo Del Mar, Palos Verdes Estates.

The family requests that contributions be made in his name to The Providence Little Company of Mary Medical Center Foundation and Providence TrinityCare Hospice in Torrance.

We are equally blessed and fortunate to have been gifted the affection, friendship, love, and joy of Vicky's presence in our lives although it had been halted by her passing on March 8, 2014. We are unequivocally privileged to experience her magnanimous spirit and we are ever so grateful that we came to have called her wife, friend, confidante, colleague, grandmother, aunt, cousin, sister, and daughter.

Oyie, as family fondly called her; but known as Vicky, as she was warmly called by co-workers and friends alike, was born on April 21, 1945 in Manila, Philippines. She spent part of her childhood in The Hospicio De San Jose in Manila. She attended Legarda Elementary School, Ramon Magsaysay High School. She graduated from The University of Santo Tomas with a degree of Bachelor of Science in Nursing.

She had previously worked as a Registered Nurse at numerous hospitals around the world, most recently at Valley Medical Center and O'Connor Hospital.

She was fond of traveling, especially to reunions.

She always wanted to serve her fellow human beings. She loved people so much that she was so headstrong in becoming a nurse. She found fulfillment in her chosen career and was so proud when she passed the Philippine Board to become a licensed nurse.

Vicky was the proud daughter of 2nd Lt. Bayani P. Hernandez, of the American Dominion Forces during WWII, and Purita R Santos.

She was preceded in death by her father and her brother, Cesar. She is survived by her loving husband of 26 years, Rolly; mother, Purita; step-siblings, Jeric and Egie; sisters-in-law, Yolanda and Mayette; nieces, Jei and Kayen; nephews, Henry and Raymond; grandchildren; cousins; aunts; and uncles.

Marie passed away February 28th at the age of 92 surrounded by her children and grandchildren.

She was born in Campobello Di Mazara, Sicily on September 12, 1922. In early childhood the family moved to Casablanca, Morocco, then a French colony. As a young woman she worked as a seamstress, a talent she passed on to her daughter. She married John, her best friend's brother in 1943 and the couple enjoyed a happy life in spite of war time shortages. They managed to have fun camping on the beach, near the family's farm house, dragging a household of equipment to the water front so that they could cook pasta and fresh fish with extended family. The couple spent many evenings with family and friends, dancing to the accordion playing the waltz and the tango.

They enjoyed long summer vacations driving through Spain, Portugal, France and England. In 1950 they made a pilgrimage to Rome for the "Holy Year" where she was touched and blessed by the Pope while standing in a huge crowd at St. Peter's Square. The following year they started their family and later, immigrated to San Jose in 1961 to join her mother, father and siblings.

Marie was an unpretentious woman who enjoyed a simple life as a devoted wife, mother and grandmother. She was especially attentive to her grandchildren who spent lots of time with "Mémé", French for grandmother. She thrived on cooking hot after-school snacks, made with love. She cooked her delicious spaghetti sauce every Sunday well into her 90th year, which her grandchildren cherish to this day. She also found great joy spending time with her extended family, especially at annual reunions.

She is survived by her daughter, Marie-Jeanne and her son-in-law, Geoff Dyer; her son Marc "Tony" Zammit and his husband Wayne Crabbs; her grandchildren Nicholas and Natalie Albanese, the apples of her eyes; her sister Victoria Ravasco; her brother John Fagiano and sister-in-law, Angelina . Also, a wonderful extended family of nieces and nephews both in the US and France.

While her presence will be sorely missed, her children and grandchildren are comforted knowing that she is reunited with "Pépé", which had been her deepest desire since his departure in 2005. The family is especially grateful to Dr. Lila Fatemi, who took very good care of her to her last day.

Services will take place at Mission Santa Clara Cemetery, Saint Clare Chapel, March 8th at 1:30 PM. In lieu of flowers, Marie would welcome donations to a cause inspired by her patron saint; St. Anthony's Dining Room in San Francisco, CA.

Carlos Anaya passed away peacefully on Wednesday, January 15th, at his home surrounded by his family.

Beloved husband of 53 years to Virginia Anaya; loving father of sons Carlos V. (Katie), and Paul (Annemarie); loving grandfather of Jacob and Dylan. He is also survived by his brothers, Fred and Joe; and sister, Millie; and brothers-in-law, Ron Davis, and Gilbert Hernandez; his Uncle, Victor (Rose) Anaya all from Denver, CO; and many cousins, nephews and nieces.

Carlos was born in Las Vegas, NM, the third of eight children born to Carlos E. and Maria (Madrid) Anaya. Upon his mother's death he was raised in St. Clara's orphanage in Denver and after completing 8th grade he returned to his Grandmother's home and graduated from Annunciation High School.

He was a loyal union member for 48 years with Local 669 and then Local 483 Sprinkler Fitters Union. Carlos and his family lived in Puerto Rico for 10 years where he owned and operated a Fire Protection company and upon his return to the US decided to move to San Jose where he again established another Fire Protection company.

Carlos lived a full life enjoying golfing, boating, fishing, cooking, shopping, and entertaining family and friends. Papa's pride and joy were his grandsons. At home he was called Dr. Doolittle because of the love and care he showed for his pets.

Carlos had a wonderful sense of humor which became obvious by all who met and knew him. He took great pleasure by hooking them and reeling them in. It didn't matter whether they were a doctor, priest, nurse, teacher, cashier, a business owner, waiter/waitress, bar buddy, his friend, relative, kid, or an absolute stranger. He will be dearly missed.

A special thank you to the team assigned to him from Hospice of the Valley.

A funeral mass will be held at 11am on Saturday, March 1 at Church of the Ascension, 12033 Miller Avenue, Saratoga.

In lieu of flowers, please make donations in his name to Hospice of the Valley.
