William "Bill" Cantu, is now resting in the arms of Christ.

Born in Roswell, NM, he was proud of his Apache Indian heritage, loved the Lord, his family, classic movies, dancing the jitterbug, New Mexico chili and the SJ Sharks!

Bill mentored his children in education, hunting, fishing and home repair and was a Scout leader and baseball coach.

Introduced to the electrical trade by his father, Bill became a top notch electrician. After 36 years, he retired as a journeyman. Though frequently asked to be foreman, Bill preferred to just do the work he loved and be "one of the guys." He was a proud member of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers for 64 years.

A devoted member of the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod in Cupertino and Las Cruces, NM, Bill volunteered his time and expertise for countless projects including helping to build the church school in Cupertino.

For many years Bill passionately and proudly led the Lutheran Braille Workers to distribute large print bibles in braille and Christian literature for those with visual disabilities. He sorely missed this work as his health declined.

Countless games of Mexican Train dominoes have been played and new sets purchased because Bill introduced it to his adult children. Whether it was 11 AM or PM, when they needed direction re: "the way dad taught us", Bill never hesitated with the answer.

Pre-deceased by his parents, his 4 siblings and his first born son, Billy Cantu; Bill will be deeply missed by his loving wife, Linda; his children, Cindy Ross (Jim), Donald Cantu (Susie), Cathy Vieira (Tony); his stepchildren; grandchildren; and great-grandchildren.

Funeral services will be held on Friday, September 15 at 11 AM at The Lutheran Church of Our Savior, 5825 Bollinger Rd, Cupertino.

David Langlais David Donald Langlais
May 15, 1958 - July 25, 2017
Cupertino, California

Funeral Mass: Friday, August 4, 2017, 12:00 AM at Church of the Resurrection, Sunnyvale, CA.
Vigil at 11:00 AM.
Graveside service to follow.
Interment: Gate of Heaven Catholic Cemetery, Los Altos, CA.

David Langlais, a witty conversationalist and generous host who gathered flocks of devoted friends to his Cupertino home, and raised a loving family of children and grandchildren, died suddenly on July 25 in Mountain View. He was 59.

Besides building a welcoming home for his family and friends, Dave was a tech executive who, along with his wife, made a career of bringing transformational technologies to people and companies around the world.

Born in New Jersey and later raised in the Philadelphia suburb of Lansdale, Pennsylvania, he came to the Bay Area as a teenager. He earned a degree in Computer Science from San Francisco State University in 1982. An athlete and sports lover, he was the starting setter on the De Anza Community College Men's Volleyball team in 1979.

A sports related injury and chance encounter at De Anza changed the course of his early life, introducing him to his wife of 36 years, Terry Langlais. Nursing a broken ankle beneath his desk on the first day of English Lit class, he gingerly shifted his injured leg out from under his desk, directly into the path of his striding wife-to-be. She stumbled over the cast and fell into a romance that brought marriage in 1982, followed by two children: son John Langlais in 1991, and daughter Kathleen Langlais in 1996.

Energetic and sociable, the couple hosted weekly gatherings at their Cupertino home, bringing together friends from high school, college, and the software companies where they worked. Gregarious and funny, he mixed drinks and banter, the amiable and mischievous life of the party. In conversation, he drew often from his twin interests in history and television, recounting Chernow's lessons on John Adams as readily as Sheldon's antics on Big Bang Theory.

The couple's tri-level in the foothills became a frequent gathering place for their ever-expanding social circles. Dave exuded a warmth and welcome that formed a place of comfort for family and friends. He extended his care to nieces and nephews that he regarded like children, especially his nephew Ryan Tuggle. In a tradition that grew more elaborate every year, he put Christmas decorations on the roof, reindeer hoisted into the sky, beacons of light for those he loved.

With his children, Dave built community around their schools and endeavors. In his wallet he carried pictures of sporting events and school dances. In one, he and his son smile broadly at the camera, enjoying their season tickets to the SF Giants. In another, he and his daughter double over in laughter while dancing The Robot to a regal waltz at a gala ball. He cherished most the evenings together, the simple pleasure of watching the Warriors or a Harry Potter marathon. His family cherishes these memories of laughter shared, quiet but clever punchlines, and nights spent glued to a ball game.

Dave often said his dream job was to be chief street sweeper at Disneyland. He visited many many times but was distracted by the rides, and so found another path. He worked in technology, bringing early networking protocols to organizations around the world, ushering in the internet age. As he progressed through his career, managing teams and elaborate IT operations across the world, he balanced his growing responsibilities with excursions of fun, keeping promises to colleagues, family, and friends alike. He nimbly pivoted between strategic project investment planning and the waters of Avalon Harbor, between cloud and automation conferences and the fairways at Sun River, Oregon.

Along with his wife and children, he is survived by his parents Donald and Lorraine Langlais, brother Ron Langlais, sister Lisa Karleskind, and mother-in-law Lucille Halloran. He is also survived by grandchildren Mae and Lucille Tuggle.

Dave was a devoted husband, father, son, brother, uncle, nephew, grandfather, and cherished friend to many. His jovial spirit flowed from a generous soul, deeply committed to his family and the many friends he welcomed into his home, always there for those in need.

Funeral services will be held August 4, 2017 at Church of the Resurrection, 725 Cascade Drive, Sunnyvale, CA. The praying of the Rosary will be held at 11AM with Mass following at 12PM. In honor of Dave's casual style, Tommy Bahama's attire preferred.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a memorial donation to Dave's Make-A-Wish Foundation fundraising drive http://bit.ly/2v5o8sz.

Eleanor Dimmick Eleanor Dimmick
March 26, 1930 - July 16, 2017
San Jose, California

Memorial Service: Saturday, August 5, 2017, 11:00 AM at Alameda Family Chapel, Saratoga, CA.
Interment: Private.

Eleanor Bosheff Dimmick passed away at the age of 87 on July 16, 2017 in Los Altos, California. She was born in Niles, Ohio on March 26, 1930, the youngest and fifth child of Helen and Peter Bosheff, immigrants of Eastern Europe. Growing up in a rural area, as a first generation American, Ellie was a drum majorette for Niles McKinley High School featured in parades and the local Niles newspaper. After graduating from high school, she worked for the telephone company.

An adventurous woman, Ellie arranged a road trip with her brother Steve, and drove from Ohio to Illinois to visit older brother John, a Navy veteran studying electronics, and wife Bernice. Ellie returned to Ohio, but when John and Bernice moved to California, Ellie's pioneer spirit kicked in and moved to California in 1950, and worked as a telephone operator in Inglewood. A co-worker, Lorraine invited her to dinner at the home of her mother, Ellen and husband Pappy, and introduced Ellie to her brother, Ed Dimmick.

They started dating, and while Ed served in the Navy, Ellie became an American Airlines stewardess. They were married in 1954 in Las Vegas. Ellie resigned from her job because at that time company policy stated stewardesses couldn't be married. Ed & Ellie lived in Glendale and Ed worked for McDonnell Douglas, and Ellie gave birth to their daughter, Linda in 1955, and son, John in 1957. In 1959, upon accepting a job at Lockheed, Ed and Ellie moved to Northern California. They visited the Pioneer Village home development, selected a home style, and their home was built in San Jose, while they rented a home in Cupertino. After moving into their new home, the family grew with the birth of their son, Tom in 1960, and daughter, Jennifer in 1962, both at O'Connor Hospital where Ellie was a dedicated volunteer.

Eleanor worked at Fairchild as a quality control inspector, and encouraged her children to be involved in sports, Girl Scouts, and to have pets: rabbits, dogs, cats, a turtle and a parakeet. She made the best apricot jam, and was an expert seamstress and loved to knit. Ellie visited Ohio for her 20th high school reunion and her niece Carol was 12 sharing that her family went to the Niles/McKinley airport when she arrived. "Eleanor got off the plane, wearing a stunning yellow dress, her hair coal black and beautiful complexion — she was as funny as she was beautiful." Visiting Florida, she attended her niece Ginny's wedding, and had a reunion with her sister Mary, and reminisced about Ohio.

Ellie always had a collection of word search books and pen close at hand. Watching baseball was a favorite pass time whether it was her great grandsons playing or the SF Giants or Oakland A's. The San Jose Sharks lost a true devoted fan as she never missed a game on television, and did enjoy seeing them at the Shark Tank. Across from the Shark Tank is a park with her name engraved on a brick showing her support of the team.

Grateful for knowing Eleanor/Aunt Ellie, family and friends has shared thoughts and stories upon learning of her passing. Common themes are of a sense of humor and a good laugh, and the importance of family and enjoying the tribe of kids in her home, and shared:

Julie Gomes Busch: "I remember how nice she was to my brother and I growing up. She was a kind and considerate neighbor."

Anne B.: "i remember how she would play the 'player piano' in the living room and sing the song so happy and full of energy."

Rachel Rutherford: "When I first met Ellie, I was in my mid-20s and had just started dating her oldest son, John. I was nervous to meet her, and did not know what to expect. But she was natural, warm, and treated me as comfortably as if I had already been to her house many times. Over the years, I came to realize that this was part of her nature -- if you were involved with her family, you were family too. When 1 looked at her, the main impression I got was of a cheerful hidden hellion -- a woman with sparkle, spunkiness, courage, appetite, boldness -- who wanted a lot of kids and got them; who wanted a strong family and got one; wanted to be around for all the grandkids and was -- and who transmitted to her children and grandchildren those same characteristics of courage, boldness, love, warmth, and play. Ellie showed up, and was rock solid."

Family members and friends will gather together to remember Eleanor Bosheff Dimmick on Saturday, August 5th, 2017 at 11:00 am at the Alameda Family Chapel located at 12341 Saratoga-Sunnyvale Road, Saratoga, California 95070. A celebration of her life to share favorite memories and experiences will follow at her home.

Eleanor/Mom/Aunt Ellie/Grandma/GG is survived by her four children, six grandchildren and five great grandchildren whose photos decorated her home and especially her kitchen refrigerator. Eleanor's children: Linda (husband David Lyon and step-daughter Tori), John, Tom, and Jennifer Dimmick (fiance Joe Cota and his son Albert), children Catherine, Cynthia (children David Jr., Shawn, and Lilly), Cassandra (husband Steve and children Kayla and Alan), Chelsea, James, and Crystal. She is also survived by Bosheff and Dimmick families, extended family members, and friends in Southern and Northern California, Ohio, New Mexico, Florida, Texas, Washington State, Idaho, Colorado, Tennessee, and Nevada. Eleanor is reunited with her predeceased siblings: John, Mary, Bill, and Steve, and parents Helen and Peter.

Eugenia Deleev passed away peacefully on Thursday, June 29, 2017 at her home in Sunnyvale. She was born outside of Kiev, Ukraine, on December 16, 1925.

Jeanie's mission in life was to defeat world hunger one person at a time. Any visitor who stopped by her home was asked if they were hungry and if they had eaten. There were always cookies and tea when anyone came to visit her.

She married Michael Deleev in 1944 and raised 2 sons and a daughter. His passing in 2000 was a sadness to all who knew him. They found spiritual solace attending St. Michael's Ukranian Orthodox Church in San Francisco where they were long standing parishioners.

Jeanie was only 15 years old when she was taken from her family in the Ukraine by German soldiers during WW2 to work in factories, hospitals and officers' homes. After the war she met Michael and had their 2 sons (born in 1945 and 1950) in Germany before finding sponsors who helped them immigrate to America to live in Chicago, IL, in 1951. Their daughter was born the following year in 1952. In 1962 they moved to Mountain View, where they lived until 1964 when they bought their home in Sunnyvale.

Jeanie is survived by her two sons, Walter Deleev and Albert Deleev (Arlene Alipato); her daughter, Elizabeth Deleev Hylander-Priebe (Charles); 10 grandchildren; 3 granddaughters-in-law; 1 grandson-in-law; 11 great-grandchildren, 3 great-great-grandchildren. She was much loved and will be greatly missed by her family and friends.

Services will be held on Monday, July 3 with a visitation from 12pm to 1pm and a Service at 1pm at Serbian Cemetery, 1801 Hillside Bvd, Colma.

August 20, 1931 - June 23, 2017
Los Gatos, California

Interment: Private.

Doris Mae was born in Los Angeles, the younger of 2 daughters, to Julia Elizabeth (McComb) and Alva Lee Campbell. As a young adult, she lived in Atlanta, New York City and then France, where she married Marcus E. Powers in 1955. After their first child was born, they moved back to New York, where 2 more sons were born, then to Los Angeles, where their last 2 children were born. Doris moved to San Mateo in 1984, and then to Los Gatos in 2004.

Doris enjoyed traveling – Europe, Japan, South Africa, Australia. She also took many trips to various parts of the US. She loved car camping since her dad first took the family when she was a little girl. She continued that tradition with her own children, patronizing the California Redwoods, plus the big National Parks of the west.

Doris loved animals, and sometimes traveled far and wide to see them - an African Safari, Harp Seals in eastern Canada, Polar Bears in northern Canada. She supported international animal funds, the local humane societies, and cat rescue operations. Doris' own cats were among the luckiest in the world and giving them up in her later years was one of the hardest things she ever had to do.

Doris leaves her 5 children and their spouses, plus 8 grandchildren, whom she loved very much. Private services will be held at a later time. Donations in her memory can be made to the animal charity of your choice. The family would like to thank the caregivers at The Terraces of Los Gatos, Nexgen Health Care, and Seasons Hospice.

May 4, 1929 - June 20, 2017
Santa Clara, California

Memorial Mass: Friday, August 4, 2017, 10:00 AM at St Justin Church, Santa Clara, CA.
Graveside Service: Friday, August 4, 2017, 12:00 PM.
Interment: Gate of Heaven Catholic Cemetery, Los Altos, CA.

Tony Bell passed away on June 20, 2017 at the home he loved after a long battle with Parkinson’s Disease. He was 88 years old.

Tony was born to a very Catholic family in Shanghai, China in 1929 as the thirteenth of sixteen children. As American citizens, the family was placed first under house arrest after Pearl Harbor and later moved to a family prison camp. Tony and many family members were exchanged for Japanese prisoners in Goa, India and brought to the United States. They first took residence in Detroit with other family members but soon re-settled in San Jose at a house purchased with funds borrowed from the Catholic Church.

As a teenager Tony worked in the San Jose canneries and as a machinist and graduated from San Jose High School. His continued work supported his attendance at Santa Clara University. He later transferred to San Jose State to increase his (along with other siblings') support of his parents who had lost their home and most of their belongings in the war. Tony was an avid soccer player in college, including serving as player-coach.

Tony was drafted to serve in the Korean War, where he earned a purple heart and the bronze star. After returning, Tony worked nights while completing his degree at San Jose State.

While at San Jose State he met the love of his life, Joan Perrin, whom he vowed to follow to wherever her parents might send her. Soon after marriage Tony and Joan purchased the house that they would both live in for the rest of their lives, raising four children and hosting uncountable get-togethers with family and friends.

Tony honed his skills as machinist and welder at Westinghouse and then General Electric’s Nuclear Fuels Research Division where he ran the prototyping facility.

After General Electric closed the facility, Tony finished his career at Lockheed Missiles and Space as a production engineer.

A lifelong motorcycle rider, Tony loved supporting his sons’ go-kart and motocross racing activities, including at times racing himself. He particularly enjoyed using his skills to “find” the best “standard” racing engines.

Tony loved all activities with his family, including goose and pheasant hunting, playing poker, tennis, hosting barbeques, riding motorcycles, and taking pictures.

Tony also particularly enjoyed supporting the exploits and accomplishments of his sons and daughter.

For many years Tony was known for his Studebakers, including a Hawk and several station wagons, most of which had a sliding roof design unique to the brand.

Tony spent much of his free time helping friends and family whenever called, and vacations camping in Yosemite or a free day in Santa Cruz or Carmel.

Tony was preceded in death by his wife Joan, his parents Joe and Nellie, and fourteen of his siblings, Ed, Frank, Paul, Dave, Barney, Joe, Lucille, John, Marie, Nellie, Richard, Chris, Audrey, and Rosmarie. He is survived by his older brother Peter, four children, Pillow (husband Earl), Tab (wife Kari), Peter, and Tim (wife Paulette) and six grandchildren.

Campbell, California

Memorial Mass: Friday, June 16, 2017, 10:30 AM at St Mary of the Immaculate Conception Church, Los Gatos, CA.
Interment: Private.

Beatrice Di Duca, exceptional mother, gifted artist, and expert genealogist, died June 5, 2017 in Campbell, CA. Bea’s adventurous spirit led her to California in 1958 with her husband Joseph, and their children, Benedict and Charlotte. There, she supported her husband while he started Di Duca Bros. and had their youngest, Renee.

Born in Grosse Pointe, MI in on April 5, 1928 and raised in her father’s architectural studio, Bea showed exceptional talent on her dad’s drafting board from a young age. She studied fashion design and created paintings that once seen, are always remembered: brilliant monochromatic portraits, fluorescent scenes of Africa and the Caribbean, and whimsical paintings of jungle animals for her grandsons.

Bea, her four sisters, and two brothers grew up on a farm near Marine City, MI during the Depression, and her family moved from state to state in search of work. After Pearl Harbor, the family left Virginia Beach for Michigan where they would be safe.

In her words, “Our experiences broadened our perspectives of life, love, and the pursuit of happiness.” Bea was a talented pianist, and could play anything from classical to pop, in a casual but polished style few musicians could match.

She encouraged her children and grandchildren in everything they did and loved them unconditionally. She is survived by her husband, Joseph Di Duca and son, Benedict Di Duca, of Paradise, daughter Renee Patton and son-in-law Marcel Manzardo of Los Gatos, and grandsons, Thomas Patton of San Francisco, Joseph Patton of Seattle, and Nic Moretz of Tucson.

Robert (Bob) Sears passed away on Friday, May 5th. Bob was born in E. Providence, Rhode Island on December 27, 1947. Although born in Rhode Island, he moved to San Jose at 5 years old and lived the rest of his life in the Santa Clara Valley. Bob was a veteran of the U.S. Army serving his time at Fort Ord and Fort Hood. After his military service, he attended and graduated from the Philco-Ford Technical Institute and put that education to use working at Hewlett Packard helping to design one of the first HP calculators.

After a decade with HP, Bob ultimately discovered a career that fully used his gifts of leadership, service and wonderful business acumen; the world of real estate. Bob started off part time, within a year he was one of the leading salesmen with Century 21 Lynette Realty. He continued to excel, left HP and soon he and his wife, Linda purchased the company. They transitioned from Century 21 to Prudential California Realty and continued to operate their highly regarded real estate organization for a total of 41 years. In 2015, they retired and sold the company to Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Drysdale Properties, headquartered in Danville, CA.

Bob was beloved by everyone who worked with and for him in the real estate industry. He was a distinct leader and innovator in his field. Many Realtors in the Santa Clara Valley learned their trade under the competent and caring training of Bob. He wasn’t just a boss but became family to many who to this day call him their surrogate father. He was a member of the Optimist Club of San Jose, and also loved his volunteer work helping students with Art and Science projects at his grandson’s school Hacienda Elementary Science Magnet.

Bob will be deeply missed by all. He was a one of a kind man who brought life and energy to any room he walked in to. He was also seen by many as the one to turn to in need or crisis. They knew not only would Bob be a loving and listening ear but he would also be someone who would know what path to take or decision to make as he offered his treasured advice and opinion.

He is survived by his loving wife Linda of 48 years, daughter Jeannie Frangos (Pete), and grandsons Christopher and Nicholas; son Dan Sears (Michelle) and granddaughters, Faith, Star and Skye. Bob is also survived by his mother-in-law Lois Eberhart, father-in-law Lewis Gasper Sr., brother Joe Walters (June), brother Craig Sears (Colleen), sister Debra Girard (Jim), brother-in-law Lewis Gasper Jr. and sister-in-law Loretta Gunner (Frank), and his aunt Doris Sears.

She was born on Dec 8, 1935 to Henry and Cecelia Laube in St. Louis, Missouri and moved to Harlan, Iowa before high school. She married Gerald Gallagher on June 29, 1957 in Harlan, Iowa after college and together they bravely moved to Los Angeles, California in 1958 to secure teaching jobs, settling in Glendale, California for the remainder of their lives.

The love of Lee’s life was her family. She was a strong, smart and loving Mother to her four children and a devoted wife, who always put their needs first. She created a special home where everyone who visited felt welcomed, cared for, and well fed. Lee was as gracious and generous as they come. She was a great cook and created many happy memories and meals for so many. No one was a stranger in her home. Lee also loved adventure and with her family spent many happy summers camping across the United States. She was keenly dedicated to her German heritage and loved to explore remote cemeteries looking for lost relatives. She viewed the remotest of dirt roads as an exploration opportunity and she instilled that same sense of spirit in her family. After retirement, she and Jerry spent many years traveling all over the US and the world with family and good friends, she especially loved trips to see her grandchildren.

Lee was the planner, resourcer and driver of her family. Be it a birthday event or a rehearsal dinner, she would skillfully organize the entire affair and deliver it with skill and consistency never taking credit for any of it. She truly epitomized the consummate, skillful Mother.

Lee was a true lifelong learner and teacher. Her formal education started at the Iowa Teachers College and culminated with a Master's Degree in Child Development from Pacific Oaks College. She was a dedicated, respected and beloved Kindergarten teacher at Mark Keppel Elementary School in Glendale. She was a champion for her students and their families and made sure that their education included not only the ABC’s but, nature, art and especially music and dancing. Lee also loved collaborating with her fellow teachers and remained close to many of them even after retirement.

Lee was an active parishioner at The Church of the Incarnation for many decades and her Catholic Faith was central to who she was.

She is preceded in death by her loving husband of 57 years, and her "West Coast mother" and dearest friend Marie. She is survived by four children: Timothy (Linda) of Anchorage Alaska; Ellen Robinson (Cindy) of San Jose, California; Carrie Landry (Kevin) of Star, Idaho and Matthew (Eleni) of Sierra Madre, California and grandchildren Michelle, Andrew, Aaron, Audrey, Alexander, George, Molly, Keller, Grant, and Connor,

Interment: Santa Clara Mission Cemetery, Santa Clara, CA.

Our beloved wife, mother, Nana, sister, and friend passed away peacefully at home, lovingly surrounded by her family on January 31, 2017.

Olivia was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, graduated from high school in Salem, Oregon, and moved to Santa Clara in 1962. Olivia's life was full of adventure and family. She was an avid world traveler, accompanying her husband on many of his business trips. She was a constant presence at her children's schools, always volunteering in some capacity. She returned to work once her children were older – first as an interior designer, then the manager of the family's Mexican restaurant, and finally as a real estate agent.

She was devout in her Catholic faith and loved being active in her Tuesday morning prayer group for almost 30 years. She thrived at helping others and giving selflessly of her time. Her greatest happiness was spending time with her family and especially her grandchildren. She could always be found at school or sporting events, cheering from the sidelines, or just spending time together. She bravely battled pancreatic cancer for over a year and a half. Her strength was incredible during the last part of her journey on earth, and in the end, she did as she always told others – she left it in God's hands.

To know Olivia was to love her for her devotion to God, family and friends and for her kind heart and gentle nature. She will remain a living presence much more than a memory to all those whose lives she touched. Whether you met her once or had the privilege of knowing her for a long time, she made an impression on your heart.

She is survived by her husband of 49 ½ years, Robert Gray; daughters, Lisa Fuqua (Peter), Tanya Reinhardt (Erich); and son, Roger Gray; her sister, Bea Hernandez; her brother, Mike Martinez (Marlett); half sisters, Norma Boltz (David), Sonia Coker (Richard); and half brother, Roy Martinez (Sonia); and most especially by the lights of her life – her 9 grandchildren: Olivia, Julia, Maria, Ella, Joseph and James Fuqua, Jakob and Xavier Reinhardt, and Maggie Gray; also by numerous nieces and nephews.

Olivia's Rosary and Funeral Mass will be held at St. Mary of the Immaculate Conception, 219 Bean Street, Los Gatos on Thursday, February 9, 2017 with a viewing at 11am followed by a Rosary and Mass at 12pm. Internment will follow at Santa Clara Mission Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, you may make a donation in Olivia's name to St. Mary's Catholic Church.

In 2014, he and his family moved to San Jose, CA to be closer to his extended family and his son, who moved to California in 2008.

Mr. Lee was a soft-spoken and extremely kind-hearted man. Although money was tight, he worked tirelessly and devoted much of his life to raising three children and enabled them to attend college. When he found spare time, he enjoyed photography, reading about stocks, and followed Detroit sports.
