I just recieved the May 2020 issue of the
Livermore Heritage Guild newsletter with
a story about my love affair with my adopted hometown of Livermore.
here the see the article)
While I appreciate the glowing tribute by the writers,
I should not be given so much credit for publicizing the Livermore
Centennial Lightbulb. Many others had just as big a part in this
project, including Livermore Herald and News reporter Mike Dunstan,
who wrote the first story about its longevity. Others who deserve
as much credit are former Fire Chief Stu Gary, Tom Bramell, Dick
Jones, Anna Siig, Tim Sage, and the late Lynn Owens, just to
name a few.
Over the years I had the privilege
of working on other projects with exceptional people who rallied
to save the Southern Pacific depot, make Las Positas College
what it is today, preserve our vineyard region, create the first
Historymobile, and recover the "lost" Centennial time
So many fond memories come flooding back
as I recall our 35 years in the Tri Valley and the many friends
we made. As some of your readers know I have been diagnosed with
terminal pancreatic cancer. I am greatful for the many letters
and e-mails I have received in recent weeks. Thanks you all from
the bottom of my heart.
