Livermore Independant ........................May 7, 2020

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.
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 capsule.
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.
