The young Lien family soon relocated to Crookston, Minnesota, where he attended local schools and until his enlistment in the US Air Force in 1953. After honorably completing his service to his country, Bud began his career at automobile dealers in Crookston and Minneapolis. He was then prompted by a former co-worker and friend to accept a position at San Jose Ford in 1961. Soon thereafter he accepted another positon at Joe Kerley Lincoln Mercury where his career would span 43 years until his retirement in 2005. It was in the early years in San Jose that he and Agnes (nee Koolstra), also originally from Crookston, were married. They were blessed with three sons.

Bud served his church family at SJCRC for over 55 years in many capacities: greeter, coffee server, youth leader, custodian, building & grounds committee member, deacon and elder. Bud’s faith was prominent in how he lived his life. His prayer for family and friends was that they too would come to a saving faith in Jesus Christ. Romans 8:1-17.

Bud is survived by his wife Agnes and three sons, Jeff (Paige), Mike (Laura) and Ken. He is also survived by five beloved granddaughters, Clara, Briana, Aubrey, Cassidy and Amanda, sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law, and nine nieces and nephews. Bud was predeceased by his parents and sister.

Santa Cruz Mountains, California

Interment of Cremated Remains: Private.

Ted was born in Portland, OR on April 1, 1939 to Leonard Henry Gehrke and Eugenia (Taylor) Gehrke. He spent his youth as an "Army brat" as his father was transferred around the US during World War II.

In his early adult years he lived in New York City and managed several emerging jazz and rock bands, their concerts and tours (US and Europe) and record albums. He married Elizabeth Turner in 1967 and in 1968 they moved to the SF Bay area. In 1972 he became the Student Union Program Board Advisor at San Jose State University, where he guided a student board on the booking and producing of music and other arts acts. He later ran the Student Union Art Gallery.

In 1981 he inaugurated, with Rick Bates and the Program Board, the San Jose State Fountain Blues Festival - now called the San Jose Fountain Blues and Brews Festival - which has had an (almost) continual annual run in downtown San Jose. He continued to be a very vocal and real supporter of San Jose State University and the City of San Jose.

He was an accomplished poet, an excellent golfer, and a contributing member of his Redwood Estates community where he and his family have lived for 46 years. One of his proudest successes as a member of RE Water Board was helping to stop part of the Santa Cruz mountains from logging.

He is survived by his wife, Elizabeth; twin daughters, Lucia Arredondo and Sierra Gehrke; daughter Crystal Hoffman; and by his twin granddaughters, Evangeline "Eva" Belle Arredondo and Josephine "Josie" Jane Arredondo. On behalf of Ted and the family, to continue his legacy of the Fountain Blues and Brews Festival, remembrance donations can be made to the non-profit Festival at www.fountainblues.com. Also, please support this year's 38th annual event by attending Saturday, June 22nd, 2:00-8:00 PM at Cesar Chavez Park.

He will mostly be remembered as a mentor to young people, an enthusiastic promoter of all music and the arts, a raconteur, as well as a loving and devoted father and husband. Here was a man who truly reveled in his family, friends and community. A Memorial Gala is to take place Saturday, March 30. Please email Elizabeth at TedGmemory@gmail.com for details. Another special tribute/fundraiser will take place at a later date at the Poor House Bistro. Check www.fountainblues.com for details.

As Ted would say, "Bravo!"

John Alexander Herman (also known as Dr. John or “DJ”) passed away on Jan. 14th having spent his life committed to service while spreading wit, warmth, and exuberance to everyone he met. John was a graduate of Cornell University, NYU Medical School, and became a Captain in the U.S. Air Force, 78th USAF Hospital, Hamilton Air Force Base, CA. There he cared for wounded soldiers returning from Vietnam and found his calling to help others.

Recognizing the impending diabetes epidemic, John spent 25+ years at San Jose Medical Group as a practicing Physician of Internal Medicine and Endocrinology working extensively with Hispanic patients with diabetes. Summers were filled educating and treating diabetic children at Camp De Los Niños and Camp DJ at Sequoia Lake, named in his honor. And for three decades, John was an active Board member of the Diabetes Society of Santa Clara, fundraising and providing diabetes education programs to the local community.

John also taught at UCSF for 40 years as Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine, guiding hundreds of first-year medical students to provide comprehensive medical and emotional care to low income patients. And as a cancer survivor, John volunteered at Cancer CAREpoint sharing his compassion, care, and good humor to those in Silicon Valley touched by cancer.

In 2008, John was recognized by the California State Senate with a Lifetime Achievement and Service Award for his meritorious service to humanity.

John was passionate about gardening, enjoyed hiking with his best friend Frank, traveling the world with his wife Edna, painting, and spending time with his family.

John’s loving spirit will be carried on by his wife of 53 years, Edna Herman; daughter, Michelle Herman; daughter and son-in-law, Erica and Denis Baylor; and grandchildren, Michael Alexander and Jason John Baylor.
