Arnold Pahler

Arnold James Pahler
October 19, 1941 - May 30, 2024
Saratoga, California

Interment of Cremated Remains: Residence

Arnie was born in 1941 in Cleveland, Ohio, where he was raised, and passed away peacefully at home in Saratoga on May 30. He is preceded in death by his wife of 47 years, Anne; his siblings, Joseph and Ann; and many longtime friends. He is survived by his daughter, Laura (Oscar Farje); son, Brett (Anna); grandson, Alex; and nieces, Kim, Darlene, and Annemarie of Ohio.

Arnie worked several jobs to put himself through college at Kent State ('65) and Ohio State ('66) where he received his Master's in Accounting. Inspired by a road trip to the West Coast with his sister in 1964, he made the move to Sunnyvale in 1966 and worked at Arthur Andersen for nine years. While on a ski trip in Lake Tahoe, he met Anne, originally from Leominster, Mass., and they were married in 1970. Soon he transitioned into education, teaching Financial Accounting and Auditing at San Jose State University and for the UC Santa Cruz Master's program over the span of four decades. During this time he also authored an Advanced Accounting textbook that was first published in 1981 and continued for nine editions through 2006.

While the children were young, Arnie enjoyed coaching soccer and Little League at Congress Springs, and many afternoons were spent running football patterns in the backyard or practicing a pitch. The family also enjoyed boating and waterskiing trips to Lake Almanor and Lake Havasu and snow-skiing at Tahoe, where he skied into his 70s. At home he enjoyed playing bridge and whist and battling his son in the game Axis and Allies. He was an avid reader and sports fan and researcher of nutrition. After switching to part-time before retirement he treasured mornings meeting good friends to jog at the Saratoga High School track. One of his favorite pastimes was cultivating up to 70 fruit trees and sharing the peaches and plums with others.

He will be dearly missed and remembered by many. A memorial will be held privately by family.

His parents were Lyle Sr an English-Scandinavian (or as Lyle called him “A Heinz Fifty Seven Variety” nationality) and Gussie Patti a very proud Italian lady. Many of the Patti-Fifield clan all lived within blocks of each other in San Mateo which led to large family get togethers, tons of food, and lots of laughing. He was involved in football and baseball from the time he caught his first ball for the remainder of his life. He coached Little League in Milpitas for years. Lyle, a left hander, loved playing catch with his great grandson Jordon (another lefty!!)

Lyle was the proud father of Christy Anne and Joseph Lyle. He was an even prouder grandfather (or Vavu) to three beautiful granddaughters Jasmine Nichole, Jaeonna Eileen and Gabriella Jo. He was so proud to become the great grandfather of Jordon D’Andre. He had so many wonderful times with each of the “Special 4” They were his “team”. So many memories, so many good times, and so much love. He also had a special bond with his cherished dog Dusty. Dusty was with him every day up until his passing with Dusty sleeping under the bed on the last day. Although Lyle was an only child, he had a large and loving family. His dear cousins and God Daughter Jamie McClone and Shellie Ramazzotti were with him in prayer and love throughout his illness.

Lyle loved Irish and anything to do with the University Notre Dame. His special leafs on his personal four leaf clover were Family, Friends, Fava Beans and Faith. Faith was always first and it carried him through all the challenges he faced. He faced many health challenges with dignity, grace driven by his faith.

Lyle always had patience and willingness to help anybody whenever he could. Lyle, Christy and Joey were the three musketeers. A gift shop with Christy on vacation or a baseball or football game with Joey were highlights. He helped Jasmine with her school reports, always looking for any extra tidbits that would make it better. He was in the front row when she was Student of the Month. He was beside her in every school function filled with love and pride.He was in the hospital when she was born and held her before her mother did. He encouraged Jaeonna in her artistic endeavors and was by her side at birth and when she was recently in the hospital. Again, he was in the front row when she was Student of the Month. He worked tirelessly with Gabriella in the training, care and love for Dusty. They taught him tricks and good dog behavior(?) He watched all of Gabi’s basketball games over and over and over on TV. He was in the hospital when she was born as well. He was just beginning to teach Jordon how to throw a curve ball. He had visions of him going on to a pro team! Again, he was in the hospital for Jordon’s birth.

Lyle was an usher at St John the Baptist church for many years.

Lyle worked at San Jose State University for 30 years.

Lyle and Pat were married for 56 years. They had so many fun times and a happy faith filled love.

A Requiem Mass for the Repose of the Soul of Lyle will be held on June 29, 2024 at 1:30 p.m. at St John the Baptist Catholic Church, 279 S Main Street, Milpitas, CA 95035

Funeral Service: Saturday, May 4, 2024, 11:00 AM at Foxworthy Baptist Church, San Jose, CA
Interment of Cremated Remains: Residence

Steven Michael Del Grande (60) of Manteca, CA, passed away in a tragic accident on April 11, 2024, when an oncoming car suddenly made an illegal U-turn directly into the path of his Harley Davidson motorcycle as he was riding home from work. His family is profoundly saddened over this unexpected loss.

Steve was born in San Francisco, CA on April 12, 1963 to parents David and Colleen. In 1970 the family moved to the South Bay Area (Cupertino then San Jose) where Steve played Little League baseball, rode dirt bikes, and got into plenty of mischief with a legion of neighborhood friends. He graduated from Blackford High School in San Jose in 1981, and went on to study at community college before beginning his long successful career in all things mechanical, machining, fabrication, precision tooling assembly and testing.

In January 1991, Steve welcomed his only son, David Michael, who grew to become Steve’s best friend. Together they shared a love of motorcycles, boating, fishing, sports, and more. Steve was thrilled to share these passions with his cherished new grandsons Clayton Michael (35 months) and Chance Cameron (12 months). He was such a proud papa who loved to brag about these boys, and held great admiration for their mother, Morgan Bridgman, David’s partner.

At work, Steve excelled at systems troubleshooting, building prototypes, and creating tools for industries ranging from nuclear power to national defense. He developed and contributed his expertise at NASA/Ames - Lockheed Martin, Westinghouse/Northrop Grumman, SLAC/SRI, GE, and Primus Power, before ultimately landing a dream job in 2021 at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, building and tearing down important systems for our national defense. As a Senior Mechanical Technologist within the Defense Technology Engineering Group, he supported Strategic Deterrence and Weapons Technology Programs.

He was very happy after buying his first home in Manteca, where he loved to wrench on cars and motorcycles in his vast garage. His friends say he was a brilliant mechanic and could often be found tuning Harleys by ear.

Steve enjoyed classic rock, southern rock, and blues, and loved attending concerts of artists like Lynyrd Skynyrd, Robert Cray, and Jonny Lang. He was a faithful fan of the San Francisco 49ers, San Francisco Giants, and San Jose Sharks. Throughout his life, he loved to watch games with his dad, Nonno, and son, and for a couple of decades hosted a weekly fight-night tradition with many of his good friends.

Steve was a devoted and loving son who called his mother daily with the greeting, “Hello my beautiful mother.” He possessed a warm and genuine smile with an infectious laugh that will be greatly missed.

Steve was preceded in death by his father, David Michael Frank Del Grande, and is survived by his mother Colleen Ann Whitney, son David Del Grande, grandsons Clayton and Chance, brother Chris Del Grande, sisters Deanna Broussard and Tara Del Grande, step-mother Kathy Del Grande, and loyal dog Tessie.

His departure comes as a shock and great wound that is deeply felt by his entire family and countless friends who loved him dearly.

Services will be held May 4, 2024 at 11:00 AM at Foxworthy Baptist Church located at 1774 Foxworthy Ave, San Jose, CA 95124. The service will be followed by a Celebration of Life picnic at Almaden Lake Park in the South Point Picnic Area, located near the east entrance at 5949 Winfield Blvd, San Jose, CA 95118

Ismael Garcia Robledo
July 8, 1932 - March 27, 2024
San Jose, California

Graveside Service: Monday, April 1, 2024, 12:00 PM
Interment: Oak Hill Memorial Park, San Jose, CA

Ismael Robledo passed away peacefully with his family by his side in San Jose at 91 years of age. He was born in Alpine, Texas and was a veteran of the Air Force.

He will be remembered for his remarkable soul, kindness, smile, and generosity. He was a great listener with a razor-sharp mind, and we could always count on his impeccable memory to recall dates and names that we couldn’t recall.

He was a maestro of melody who strummed the strings and keys of both guitar and accordion with passion. Home was his sanctuary, where his singing filled every room and the news of MSNBC, or the timeless tales of his beloved westerns rang throughout. Nothing brought him more joy than receiving Snapchats from his grandchildren, each image a glimpse into their world, followed by a text message or call that never failed to light up his face with his infectious smile.

Ismael is reunited with his beloved wife of 50 years, Marge Robledo; son, Manuel Robledo; and his sweet Schnauzer, Reina in heaven.

He is survived by his children, Ernest Robledo, Lucinda Callaghan (Thomas Prudell), Rita Milazzo (John); and his stepdaughter, Monica Ramos (Kilos); grandchildren, Rachel Ryan (Nick), Lena and Victoria Robledo, Karen Callaghan, Brianna, Marcus and Marissa Milazzo, and Ruben, Rolando, and Rita Ramos; great-grandchildren, Colt and Palmer Ryan; and grand dogs, Mia Milazzo, Zoey and Tito Callaghan. Private services have been held.

He wrote beautiful poetry and never forgot a birthday; carefully selecting the perfect gift with the little money he had. A spiritual man, Larry ended all his cards and letters with the words, "Jesus pleases."

Larry’s lifelong struggles with mental illness gave him the insight and compassion to help others with similar challenges. He would give you the shirt off his back if needed.

November 11, 1936 - March 14, 2024
Colfax, California

Graveside Service: Tuesday, April 2, 2024, 11:00 AM
Interment: Los Gatos Memorial Park, San Jose, CA

Born in Belgium, Sylvain was the youngest boy of fourteen children in a humble farm family. The Hossay family endured war, occupation and postwar uncertainty together, with perseverance, compassion and a kindness that would shape Sylvain deeply.

He married Lea Seffer and they boldly chose to move to the South Bay in 1959. The young couple struggled, with Sylvain working any odd job he could find to support his family, from unloading freight cars to selling brushes door-to-door, all while trying to learn a bit of English when he could. In fact, Sylvain’s commitment to his family, willingness to work hard, and kindness to others would be character hallmarks throughout his life.

He landed a job with Green Valley Disposal in the early 1960s and worked for the company for four decades, while helping to raise his two children, and building a broad network of friends and a reputation for kind-heartedness and an unending readiness to help a friend.

He grew to become a gentile and generous patriarch of a growing family, and a remarkable source of love, kindness and support in the lives of his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Dedicated to soccer as a young man, he enjoyed sports throughout his life and cheered for the Giants, 49ers, Warriors, and Manchester United with enthusiasm. He enjoyed gardening and had a well-known green thumb.

He is survived by his daughter Brigitte, his son Patrick, daughter-in-law Sheri, grandchildren Ricky and Brandi, grandson-in-law Joseph, granddaughter-in-law Kathy, and greatgrandchildren Kyah, Niko, Glenda, Kingston, Athena, and Lea.

His gentile and kindhearted spirit will be missed by his many friends, whose lives are a bit finer for having known him.

Stephen Quigley

Stephen Timothy Quigley Jr
September 22, 1945 - March 15, 2024
San Jose, California

Visitation: Wednesday, April 10, 2024, 01:00 PM to 02:30 PM at St Christopher Catholic Church, San Jose, CA
Funeral Mass: Wednesday, April 10, 2024, 02:30 PM at St Christopher Catholic Church, San Jose, CA
Interment: Arlington National Cemetery, Arlington, VA

Stephen Timothy Quigley, Jr. died March 15, 2024 at the age of 78 after a long illness. Known to all as “Tim”, he was a beloved father, brother, uncle, son, & friend. Service – to his family, community, country, and by working to build peaceful connections between nations – defined his life.

Born September 22, 1945 in Wabasha, Minnesota to Stephen T. Quigley, Sr. and the former Catherine Langdon Foley, Tim earned his Eagle Scout award in 1959. He attended Cretin High School in St. Paul where he completed the junior Reserve Officer Training Corps program and received a nomination to the U.S. Naval Academy from Minnesota Senator Hubert Humphrey.

After graduating in 1967, Tim embarked on a nearly 30-year Naval career. He was certified as a P3 pilot and conducted surveillance operations around the Pacific Rim as a member of several patrol squadrons, including VP-1, VP-50, and VP-47. With VP-1 he served three combat tours during the Vietnam War. It was as a young pilot that Tim first found his way to San Jose, the city that would become his adopted hometown for nearly half a century.

His senior military leadership roles included squadron commander for VP-47, Executive Assistant to the Commander-in-Chief of NATO Forces Southern Europe and Naval Forces Europe, Commanding Officer at Moffett Field Naval Air Station, and Director of Strategic Planning and Policy for the Department of the Navy. Along with numerous military honors, Tim completed an executive management certification course from the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard and served as course president for the NATO Defense College in Rome. After retiring from the Navy at the rank of Captain in 1994, Tim returned to San Jose to embark on his next semester of life.

As a corporate and non-profit executive, Tim served as President and CEO of the Silicon Valley Defense/Space Consortium, Managing Director & CEO of the Silicon Valley Global Trading Center, Executive Director of the Volunteer Center of Silicon Valley, and Program Director of Green Challenge California. He later served as Chairman and CEO of Azores TV and NPG Multimedia. In addition to his business interests, Tim maintained active community involvement by volunteering as a board member for the San Jose Symphony and the San Jose Police Foundation, was a member of the Rotary, and found his greatest passion by serving on the board of the San Jose/Dublin Sister City Program.

His experiences being stationed internationally during his military service inspired a strong belief in the role of citizen diplomacy to foster peace through economic, social, and cultural connections among people from different countries. As a board for the San Jose/Dublin program, he participated in every San Jose delegation visit to Dublin since 1999 and led efforts to create the Pat McMahon Masters Level Scholarship program. Since its establishment in 2012, the McMahon scholarship now provides an academic exchange internship for students at San Jose State University and Dublin City University. In 2019 he was honored for his work with the Spirit of Ireland Award from the San Jose/Dublin Sister City Program.

Tim grew his involvement in citizen diplomacy by also serving as President of Sister Cities International and the Sister Cities International Foundation, which he helped to create. In those roles he led citizen delegations to countries around the world and, working from the belief that deeper integration can diffuse conflict, he was particularly proud of his efforts to foster connections with some of the United States’ political rivals, particularly cities within China and Russia.

Over the course of his tenure, he helped to established many new sister city relationships and was Chair of the 2014 International Sister Cities Annual Conference Host Committee. In 2022 he received the Foreign Minister’s Commendation from the Consul General of Japan in San Francisco for his contributions to building connections between cities in the United States and Japan.

A fourth generation Irish American, Tim held deep pride in his heritage and the strong sense of family that his large Irish clan instilled in him. He relished big family reunions and weddings, ski trips to Lake Tahoe with his children, and his annual “Christmas in the Park” family holiday celebration.

His outgoing social nature seemed to have no limits. Tim never met a waiter he didn’t want to know on a first name basis, or a city councilmember that he didn’t want to talk to about the benefits of a new sister city arrangement. He accomplished a great deal, but always maintained that his greatest pride came from his family.

Tim is survived by his partner of more than 20 years, Tsuyoshi Hashimoto of Kumamoto Japan, his daughter Ashley Jardine of Oakland, CA; sons Aaron Quigley (Jenny) of San Jose, CA; Nathan Quigley (Corinne) of San Francisco, CA; and Joshua Quigley (Tracy Gondo) of Oakland, CA; his siblings Cathy (Ray) Wicks of Woodbury, MN; Mary (John) Stevens of Marshalltown, IA; Eileen Quigley of Silver Spring, MD; Kevin (Camie) Quigley of South St. Paul, MN; John Quigley of Eagle Rock, CA; his seven grandchildren and his great-grandson. He was previously married to Mary Lynn Ashburn of Sonora, CA.

A Catholic funeral mass will be held at the St. Christopher’s Catholic Church in San Jose. Internment with military honors will follow at a later date at Arlington National Cemetery.

Memorial contributions are appreciated the Pat McMahon Scholarship Program or the Sister Cities International Foundation.

Sharon pursued a career in the medical field and spent well over 40 years helping and comforting people throughout the San Benito and Santa Clara counties.

Taking her love of music and dancing very seriously, Sharon volunteered for the USO at the Presidio in Monterey for several years during the late 60's. A big lover of pizza and heist films, Elvis and Perry Mason.... saw Jimi Hendrix light his guitar on fire at the Monterey Pop Festival, loved to play Yahtzee, and was the keeper of all lost and stray animals as well as a horse racing enthusiast. Hard working, compassionate, humorous, friendly, sweet, generous with her time and energy, thoughtful and resilient are just few ways to describe this loving soul.

Huge heart and kind, Sharon's favorite thing was to spend time with her favorite person in the world, her grandchild, Lyja. The two of them are extremely close and have spent every other weekend together since Lyja was born. Besties, Sharon introduced Lyja to Mystery Science 3000 and Lyja introduced her to Hayao Miyazaki films. They also both love Jeopardy! Oh, and garlic bread!

Sharon is loved by so many and will be dearly missed.

Visitation: Tuesday, February 6, 2024, 11:00 AM to 01:00 PM at San Jose Funeral Service, San Jose, CA
Graveside service to follow.
Interment: Oak Hill Memorial Park, San Jose, CA

Adalberto “Alberto” Avendaño passed away January 23rd, 2024 in San Mateo, California at the young age of 51 years old. Alberto was born on April 14, 1972 to Adalberto and Rosaura Avendaño in Culiacan, Sinaloa, Mexico.

Alberto is survived by his loving mother, five siblings, two sons Andrew (Katie) Avendaño, Anthony (Jenna) Avendaño, and his two grandchildren Lennon and Elias Avendaño.

Alberto’s life was centered around the importance of family and the simple pleasures of life. He found his greatest joy in being a loving father and grandfather. His love for his sons was immeasurable, and his pride in them and their accomplishments was evident. In addition to his role as a father, he was beyond ecstatic when he became a grandfather to Lennon and Elias. His face would light up with joy, love, and happiness at the mere mention, thought, or sight of his grandkids. He always adored and had a soft spot for children. He loved his nieces and nephews and treated them like his own children as well.

He will be missed by his family very much. His mother and siblings will hold him forever in their hearts and remember him for the funny character that he was. He always made everybody laugh and was a joy to be around. He was cared for dearly and his mother Rosaura will tremendously miss the presence of her first-born son, who she was always very close with. Alberto was also very close with his father Adalberto, who tragically passed away when Alberto was six years old. After Adalberto’s passing, Alberto and his family immigrated to San Francisco from Sinaloa. Alberto always held his father in loving memory, and the family knows they are now both resting in peace together.

Alberto loved all things Elvis, dogs (especially his Rottweilers Zeus and Haus), barbequing, and the Dallas Cowboys. He worked as a contractor for over 30 years and was talented in painting and construction. He took a lot of pride in everything he did, whether it was for family, friends, clients, or even strangers, he was always respectful and did everything with care. He was very humble and would give the shirt off his back for anyone whether he knew them or not.

Alberto will also be missed by his friends (who became family) over the years and who he shared multiple hobbies with. Some of the many things they enjoyed together included: camping, dirt biking, wakeboarding, and snowboarding.

Beyond his professional achievements, Dimitrios was a passionate runner, both in his youth and as a cherished member for 25 years of the West Valley Joggers and Striders Club. His love for the sport endured until his final days.

He earned his Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of Toronto in 1989, continuing his research at renowned institutions such as Brandeis, Brown, and Harvard universities before settling in the Bay Area in 1994.
