Don had a long successful career in construction management and property development. Early on, he worked for the State of Arizona. His favorite project was building the Burro Creek Bridge. After working for W.R. Shultz for a time, he became an independent residential developer in the 80's. After moving to San Jose, California, he proudly finished his career at L&D Construction, with deep respect and admiration for his co-workers, and a great sense of fulfillment.

In his early years, Don rode motocross, and loved his Bull Taco, and yellow tanked Husky. He was an avid outdoorsman, and loved to fish. Later in life, he kept in great shape from working out and hiking every day. He had a love /hate relationship with golf, but was proud to teach his son-in-law, John, the game.

He is survived by his daughters, Kristi Holder (John) and Kelly Schmida (Wayne); his son, Brent; His beloved granddaughters, Samantha, Nicole, Ally, Arielle, Eden, Violet, Sahara; His sisters, Joyce Classen & Linda D'Avola (Buddy); his love, Lory; as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins, and his dear friends.

He was thankful to all who shared in his life adventure. His ashes will be spread over the Monterey Bay near his favorite spot, the Cement Ship at Sea Cliff Beach, in a private ceremony. Like that old ship, he had many good stories to tell. His motto was "Life is Good". Think of that the next time you gaze at the beauty of the Monterey Bay. He would like that.

Norma Violet Brynsvold, loving wife, mother, and grandmother passed away on October 12, 2016 at the age of 80 in San Jose. She was the oldest daughter of 12 children born to Eino and Lillian (Holmstrom) Koskiniemi, Finnish-speaking farmers in North Dakota and Minnesota. She graduated from Sebeka High School and put herself through college, receiving her BS in Education from Saint Cloud State College. She married Glen Brynsvold in 1958 and they arrived in San Jose in 1960.

She was proudest of being a wife, mother, teacher, and friend. She had a smile and kind word for everyone she met, and she expected the best from herself and from others. She was an elementary school teacher in Minnesota, paused her career to raise her children (and serve as a classroom volunteer and PTA officer), and then attended San Jose State to meet the requirements for a California Teaching Credential. She was Teacher of the Year for San Jose Unified School District in 1992 as a classroom teacher, and was also a tutor, instructional associate (language development and ESL), and substitute teacher. She served as a Christian Education Elder at CUP Church, and as a church school director, superintendent, and teacher for many years. She found herself put in charge of many volunteer and social groups because she had a clear vision and would actually do the work required. Norma and Glen received the President's Lifetime Achievement Award in 2004 for volunteer service. Cooking and baking were two of her greatest gifts to the people she loved.

She is dearly missed by her husband, Glen; her children, Randy and Barbara, Rick and Tina, Rusty, and Ann Marie; her grandchildren, Doug, Kristin and Ashley; her brothers, Gerald, Lester, Douglas, Donald, and Ronald; her sisters, Nancy, Alice, Anna, and Dorothy; her Brynsvold in-laws, Leila and John; and the rest of her large extended family. She was preceded in death by her parents and by her brothers, Charles ("Maynard") and Eino; her brothers-in-law Michael Roeder, Al Wilmot, and Les Cross; sisters-in-law Audrey Brynsvold and Carolyn Koskiniemi; and her parents-in-law Rudy and Vera Brynsvold.

A Celebration of Life service is scheduled for Saturday October 29 at 11am at the First Congregational Church of San Jose at 1980 Hamilton Avenue. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to CityTeam Ministries and the American Cancer Society.

Seattle, Washington

Graveside Service: Saturday, November 5, 2016, 1:30 p.m.
Interment: Santa Clara Mission Cemetery, Santa Clara, CA.

Devoted, blessed, and deeply loved husband, father, friend, and former CEO, Richard Pierce Cooley, 92, passes away.

Richard "Dick" Pierce Cooley, 92, a former chief executive of both Wells Fargo and Seafirst Bank, died peacefully on Wednesday morning, September 21st, at home in Seattle in the arms of his loving wife, Bridget. His son, Richard Pierce Cooley, Jr., was also present.

Dick Cooley was born on November 25, 1923, in Dallas to Victor Cooley and Helen Pierce Cooley. He grew up in Rye, New York and had three younger sisters-twins, Kay and Ann, and Helen. Dick graduated from Portsmouth Priory in Rhode Island and was accepted at Yale University in 1940 at age 16. There he further developed his significant athletic skills and played tennis, squash, and football. This feat was recognized along with his leadership skills in business with the George H. W. Bush Lifetime of Leadership Award in 2007.

While attending Yale, Dick volunteered for the army and flew a P-38 in the European theater of WWII. In December 1944, he was test flying a newly delivered P-38 when the dive flaps failed and he crashed. A Frenchman, in Dick's words his unnamed savior, took him to a local hospital. During the accident, Dick's right arm was severed.

Although loss of his arm meant he no longer could play football for Yale, he retrained left-handed and played tennis, squash, and golf competitively. In the mid-1950s he became the national squash champion. He was a member of the Augusta National Golf Club, Cypress Point Club, and Seattle Golf Club. Dick also continued flying as a private pilot with his third wife, Mary Alice, who passed away in 1999 from cancer, and with Bridget, who is also an accomplished pilot.

Dick graduated from Yale in the class of 1944 in Industrial Administration and Engineering. He first worked for the McCall Corporation in New York City in the commercial printing department. In 1949, with his first wife, Sheila, he moved to San Francisco and joined Wells Fargo and eventually became its president and chief executive in late 1966 at the age of 42. He was named chairman and chief executive in 1978. In 1982, needing a change and a new challenge, he resigned from Wells Fargo. At the beginning of 1983, he was named chairman, chief executive, and president of Seafirst Corporation in Seattle. While at Seafirst, he determined that the best way to support investors and customers of the nearly bankrupt bank (due to loans to oil industry projects that failed) was a merger with Bank of America. Dick successfully orchestrated this and Seafirst was able to keep its name and management team for a time. Dick remained at Seafirst until 1992, staying on four more years as chairman of the bank's executive committee.

In retirement, Dick began periodic lectures at the University of Washington and made the case for an MBA class focused on the role of chief executive and critically important board relationships. Generations of University of Washington and eventually Seattle University MBA graduates benefitted from his course, which he titled The Chief Executive Officer and the Board of Directors. It was one of the highest rated courses in the Executive MBA program at UW. After passing the lead instructorship to Bill Ayer, retired chairman and CEO of the Alaska Air Group, Dick continued to kick off the course each session by teaching the first class with a lecture that came to be called his "Pocket Guide to Leadership." According to the director of the UW program, Louise A. Kapustka, as recently as the 2015-2016 winter and spring quarters, EMBA students "enjoyed his insights and sage perspective." Louise described Dick as "the quintessential leader-role model-generous with his time, modest about his accomplishments, and honest about his life lessons. Always approachable and a cheerleader for our students, it has been a rare privilege to know Dick. He made us all better-we'll miss his indomitable spirit."

Dick was a class act, chivalrous and a man of true conviction. He led a life of quiet devotion, taking comfort in his faith daily. Like many of his generation, he made emotional and physical sacrifices in service to his country but with humble heroism and dignity, qualities he exhibited throughout his life. He also possessed youthful vitality. Whether it was discussing flying, business, politics, or any other subject, he spoke with optimism and about possibilities. Dick was patient, adept at listening to others and skilled at offering words of wisdom. He had an enormous heart and a calm composure when he listened, often helping to facilitate the ability of others to act on their dreams. His strong moral compass helped guide him through hardship and happiness with grace and a sense of purpose. Dick was and felt blessed in life, but he also felt "lucky," a word he used often and cheerfully when he would marvel at his experiences and downplay just how hard he had worked for his achievements in business, athletics, flying, and bringing together communities of people in his home cities over the years.

Dick was committed to his large family, his many friends, and his boundless faith. He attended mass every day, although many people around him did not know that, as he was never one to bring attention to himself. For Dick, love and compassion were the answer to all of life's questions. Dick mingled with captains of industry, policy makers, politicians around the world, and famous individuals. He gained audiences with three popes and even encountered Babe Ruth-yet he always preferred to be in the company of friends and family to whom he offered encouragement, motivation, and support.

Dick was described as a top quality "Level 5 leader" by Jim Collins in his book titled Good to Great (2001), which describes the success of Wells Fargo in the 1980s. In addition to and in spite of the demands of his career, Dick served on both for-profit and nonprofit boards. For example, Dick was a director on the boards for United Airlines (UAL, Inc.) for 25 years beginning in the early 1970s; Pacific Gas and Electric; PACCAR, Inc.; Egghead Software; and the Burlington Northern Railroad board and audit committee from 1989 to 1994. He was an emeritus trustee of Caltech and on the board of the Kaiser Family Foundation from 1987 to 1994. He also served as a trustee for the RAND Corporation from 1971-1981 and 1982-1992. Dick was a chairman for the United Way in San Francisco and Seattle. He served on other nonprofit boards ranging from the San Francisco Zoo early in his career, to the boards for the Los Angeles County Museum and the Los Angeles Philharmonic, to the Seattle Symphony Orchestra and Seattle Art Museum, to Seattle Prep.

In 2010, Dick published his memoir Searching Through My Prayer List, which describes his long and interesting life from childhood through World War II to his successful career as a CEO in banking to being a well-loved teacher in the business schools at the University of Washington and Seattle University. A revision of this book, titled Level Best, will be published by early 2017 and is dedicated to his son, Sean Cooley, who passed away from pancreatic cancer on April 30, 2015.

Dick was a devoted husband, father, and friend.

The Cooley family would like to thank the many caregivers and medical practitioners who helped care for Dick. His exceptional caregivers from McDonald Employment were Mahal Borres, Nikki Daza, Richard Kyabihende, Katie Kyllo, and Maria Lowe as well as staff from Evergreen Hospice.

Of her late husband, Bridget says, "Dick Cooley was an exceptional human being. It was a privilege to be with him."

Carl Leavene Curl entered into rest on Monday August 1, 2016, at 2:40 AM in Santa Clara, California. He was born December 29, 1933, in Muskogee, Oklahoma to Guy Curl and Cora (Culton) Curl.

Carl was a good and loving son, brother, father, husband, friend, grandfather, and great-grandfather. He attended Booker T. Washington High School in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and graduated in 1951, at the age of seventeen. From his earliest days, he was a conscientious student, and would have finished high school by the age of sixteen, but was held back by his mother because she thought he was too young to graduate.

In 1952, Carl enlisted in the United States Marine Corps Reserves, and was honorably discharged in 1955, in San Francisco, California. He was married at a young age to Edith Compton. This union produced four children: Kenneth Curl, Guy L. Curl, Shawn Curl, and Elaine Curl.

Carl enrolled in college in San Jose, California, culminating in a degree in Electronics. Following graduation, Carl accepted a position with Lockheed Missile and Space Company in Sunnyvale, California. Throughout his career he was a trailblazer, and held various positions working his way up to a managerial position. He was involved in assignments pertaining to the NASA Gemini project, the Apollo Program, the Hubble Telescope, and the military’s infamous Skunk Works program. Being an avid sports lover, he participated in the Lockheed father-son basketball team with his eldest son Kenneth. He also liked to golf, bowl, play pool, and coach little league baseball.

As life would have it, Carl and Edith would eventually separate and divorce. As time went on, Carl met Mary Kathryn Grace while working at Lockheed and they were married in 1975. They both would retire from Lockheed in the early 1990’s, after thirty years of service, and soon thereafter move permanently into the lake front house they purchased in Clearlake, California. Together they stayed involved in local community activities such as boating, fishing, and square dancing. They also loved to travel throughout the United States visiting friends and family in their motorhome.

Carl was preceded in death by his parents Guy Curl and Cora (Culton) Curl; his siblings Ferna, Clois and Alonzo, his nephew Delvano Dorsey, and also his wife Mary Kathryn (Grace) Curl. He is survived by his ex-wife Edith (Compton) Curl and their four children: Rev. Kenneth E. Curl (Gila), Guy L. Curl (Nympha), Shawn L. Curl, Elaine Curl-Turner (Collie), and his stepchildren Rev. Gloria Word (Rev. James), Margaret Unseld (Kenneth), and Dominique Devot; his grandchildren: Kinshasa Curl, William Curl, Jerel Curl, Jediah Curl, Jovon Curl, Avery Turner, Shayauni Turner; and his step grandchild Brittany; great-grandchildren: Italy, Easton, and Abrielle; and step great-grandchild Nathan . He also leaves behind many nieces, nephews, cousins, and other relatives and friends he hopes to see in that great kingdom one day. He will always be loved and greatly missed until that day.

Los Altos, California

Interment: Private.

Lena Jean McCleary, 56, of Los Altos, passed away on July 8th, 2016 at her home.

Lena was born in Shrewsbury, PA to Millard and Leona McCleary as the youngest of seven children.

Impatient to excel, Lena went to Bucknell University at the age of 16. She then attended Carnegie Mellon to complete an MBA. Lena subsequently joined Intel in the finance group and rose to the position of Vice President of Finance.

She married Andy on July 29th, 1989 in Portland OR. Playing the piano, directing music, learning Spanish and cooking, Lena brought the same energy to life at home as she had in her professional career. She also dedicated her financial skill to the Diabetes Youth and Family organization as a member of the board.

The darkness of depression overwhelmed Lena and smothered her ability to feel the love of those around her. She succumbed to the pain and took her own life.

Lena is survived by her husband, Andy Keane, her children, Connor and Callie, and the McCleary extended family.

Lena is preceded in death by her brother, Dale McCleary, her mother and her father.

In lieu of flowers, please make donations in her name to the Brain and Behavior Research Foundation, www.bbrfoundation.org, which supports research into the causes and treatment of mental illness. In keeping with Lena's wishes, a memorial service will be held for family members.

David Weller David William Weller
November 11, 1947 - July 6, 2016
San Jose, California

Interment: Private.

On the warm afternoon of July 6, 2016, with his family by his side, Dave peacefully went to sleep for the last time.

Dave’s passions in life were peace and health for all. On his 18th birthday, as American involvement in the Vietnam War was escalating, he went to the Oakland military registration office and refused to be inducted into the Armed Forces, as Mohammed Ali did just two years later. By doing this, he risked felony imprisonment, but no charges were filed.

Five years later he joined the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers), who do not believe in war for any purpose. Dave remained an active Quaker for the rest of his life.

One of his hopes was to visit France in 2018 for the November 11th Centennial Celebration of the end of WWI. This date of Nov 11, 1918 became known as Armistice Day (Veterans’ Day), a day that is recognized as the day of formal agreement of warring parties to stop fighting. How fitting that he was born on this same date.

After obtaining a Master’s Degree in Environmental Biology, he went on to earn his Master’s in Public Health. He read incessantly about health issues current and past, and seemed to have an encyclopedic knowledge of diseases and how they affect populations. He put his knowledge of health and wellness to use as an educator in California colleges and jails.

Dave was born in Pennsylvania and moved with his family to San Jose in 1951. He graduated from Markham Jr. High and Willow Glen HS (’65).

Dave grew up participating in many outdoor activities, often involving his family’s cabin in the Sierras, and earned his Eagle Scout rank as a high school student. Throughout life he enjoyed hiking, backpacking, canoeing, kayaking, and bike riding. Dave loved volunteering for AIDS Lifecycle, a 7-day bike ride to raise funds for HIV/AIDS services and raise awareness. He was also a passionate Yosemite volunteer during the summers doing construction, maintenance, or whatever was needed.

Dave cherished all living things, except squirrels. He had many fruit trees and a large vegetable garden, which the squirrels looted regularly. Using whatever was leftover, Dave made marvelous meals for family and friends.

Dave lived a very active life until he was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia in December 2015. He is survived by his wife, Susan Golden, their beloved pups Bella, Queenie, and Princess, siblings Mary and Tom, sister-in-law Evelyn (Joe), and many nieces, nephews, and cousins. Dave is predeceased by his parents Mary and Bill, his brother Joe, and his sister-in-law, Brenna.

We will commemorate Dave’s life at Hakone Gardens in Saratoga on Saturday, Oct. 22 at 10:00 am. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you make a donation to the Yosemite Conservancy or Doctors Without Borders.

For 30 years, he worked in various positions in Finance at National Semiconductor, including Corporate Controller and Treasurer. He retired as CFO of Micrel in Oct, 2015.

His passions included traveling, music, and sports. Bob's friends and neighbors meant the world to him. He loved the 49ers and Warriors, but his love for the Giants defined him. He loved coaching Saratoga Little League and NJB, and watching youth, high school and college sports. There was nothing more important to Bob than his wife, children, parents, and siblings.

Bob will be remembered for his integrity, humor, loyalty, and for being a "Top Notch" guy. From Galatians 5:22, "…the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control." Bob exemplified all of these qualities without even trying; it's just who he was.

Bob is survived by his loving wife of 33 years, Pam; his children, Kelly and Jeffrey (Kelsey); his granddaughter, Coralie; his parents, Fran and Bob; his siblings, Diane and Denise (Jim); sister-in-law, Pam; and 8 nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his brother, Dan; brother-in-law, Rick; and nephew, Jamie.

Jean Madsen Hollands was born a vivacious Gemini on June 18, 1932 and passed away Saturday, April 23 at El Camino Hospital after a stroke.

Jean lived an extraordinary big life with a big heart and a giant smile and was a fighter of life. Her favorite motto's were "fake it until you make it" and "the sky's the limit." Jean was married three times, first to Lee Hollands, for 25 years and had 4 children, later Don Wuerflein for 20 years, and finally Tom Roher for the last 10. Before the end of her first marriage at 46, Jean had the itch to change her life around completely. Jean went back to school and became a Marriage and Family Therapist, started her counseling center called the Good Life Clinic in Mountain View, and later changed the name to the Growth and Leadership Center as she branched into executive coaching with many top Silicon Valley companies in the area, including Apple and Intel. Jean felt she was the first person to invent and practice the whole field of Executive Coaching which she continued for the next 27 years. Her daughter, Laura Hollands-Steck took over the business. Whether counseling, coaching, networking, as a member of various boards, or with her friends or her dear family, Jean impacted the lives of thousands, often proclaiming that she "saved lives and saved careers!" When sitting with CEO's she intuitively knew how to be with people and help them find their way. Jean was a straight-shooter, fearless about telling people what they needed to hear while also offering heart-warming support.

Jean was also the author of six books, Silicon Syndrome, Optimistic Organizations, Red-Ink Behavior, Same Game Different Rules for Women, and Approachability. Jean loved the spotlight and wanted to be a movie star or politician, and instead took up counseling causes and helped people in so many ways. Jean enjoyed being a frequent guest on Oprah, Good Morning America and being interviewed by a number of national publications. Jean helped non profits, and earned many awards, including the Athena Award National Association of Business Woman of the Year. Jean worked with the San Francisco Giants and the American Women's Basketball Association. Jean's fondest experiences always involved being with her family, grandchildren, and friends and doing group therapy. We will miss you so much, good bye Jean Hollands. You are so loved by so many and so much! So long!.

Jean is survived by her husband, Tom Roher; and her 3 grown children, Laura Hollands-Steck, Todd Hollands and Glenn Hollands; Step Daughter, Sandy Pounds; and her grandchildren, Lindsay, Jackie, Matt, James, Devon, Jared, and Jeremy.

Born on December 22, 1960 and raised in Selma, CA, Luie graduated from John Swett High School in 1979 and attended San Jose State University, where he studied photography. Luie's career path took him to working as the Art Director at Pacifico Advertising, owning his own business, Lopez Graphic Design and Digital Imaging, and working as the Senior Art Director for Keane Advertising before he found his home as the Director of Publications at Archbishop Mitty High School in 2003. During his 13 years at Mitty, Luie visually chronicled every aspect of school life, affectionately known by all as "the man behind the camera." His talent for capturing the quiet, powerful moments on film is a gift that he graciously and selflessly shared with all who encountered him.

A man characterized by family and friends as dedicated, courageous, faith-filled, and loving, Luie was a husband who lit up at the mere mention of his beloved wife Rose; a father who exuded pride in his cherished children Rajan and Maren; a coach who loved to talk basketball with anyone who would listen; and a friend who truly showed us how to live. His willingness to share so much of himself, to be that example of what it means to put up the good fight, to remind us of the importance of gratitude in our lives – that is the impact he had on all who had the privilege of knowing him.

A memorial will be held on Tuesday, April 5 at 3:30pm at Archbishop Mitty High School in San Jose.

Interment: Private.

Jesus "Chuy" Gallegos lost his 20 year battle with Parkinson's surrounded by his loving family in San Jose, CA. Jesus was born in Salinas, Mexico and grew up in Rosita, Coahuila, Mexico. Always a hard worker, he spent years working in the coal mines of Nueva Rosita. Jesus and Concha, his wife of 54 years, lived their American dream and moved to the United States working as migrant farm workers in Soledad, California. In 1972 they settled in San Jose to raise their five children. For the next 25 years, Jesus worked the canneries at Glorietta Packing, Sun Garden and then Mayfair Packing Company.

Jesus is survived by his wife Concepcion (Ibarra) Gallegos; his children, Juan Gallegos (Lucy), Jesse Gallegos (Bobbi), Marcela Reyes, Linda Smit (Hermie), and Alfonso Gallegos (Heather); his grandchildren, Lisset Reyes, Sara Bernard (Kyle), Erica Gallegos, Adrian Reyes, Matthew Gallegos, Monique Gallegos, AnnMarie Gallegos, Vincent Delgadillo, Fabian Delgadillo, Isaac Reyes, Alejandra Gallegos, Leticia Gallegos, Isabella Gallegos, Gabriela Gallegos and Daniel Smit; and his great-grandchildren, Alynah, Steven and Leia. Of his family in Coahuila, Mexico, Jesus is survived by brothers, Cruz Gallegos and Beto Gallegos. He was preceded in death by his parents, Alfonso and Juanita (Carranza) Gallegos; and his brother, Juan Gallegos.

It is a sad time for us all who loved him, but we are comforted in the fact that he is at peace and no longer in pain. Jesus loved sports and was a talented softball player back in the day. He loved riding his bike and playing golf, but Parkinson's slowly took all of those joys away. We rejoice in the faith that he has been released from his broken earthly body and is enjoying his splendid heavenly one. So Dad/Pops/Tata: we want you to play, sing, dance and rest in peace until we see each other again.

A Funeral Mass will be held on February 18th at 5:30pm with a visitation beginning at 4pm at St. Victor's Catholic Church, 3108 Sierra Road, San Jose.
