It was there that his love of street rods was born. That love grew
throughout his life and he had many rods come and go until about 1986,
when he started building his dream car, a 1932 Ford roadster. He drove
that car anywhere and everywhere loving every minute. We had many good
times in it and made many new and wonderful friends along the way.
Jay retired at age 55, after 35 years
with Southern California Edison. We kept in touch with many good friends
we made during those years. He was a kind, loving, compassionate,
intelligent man. He reveled in sharing his vast knowledge with anyone
Jay wrote and published two great
books, "Pinkie" and "California Hot Rodder". He mentored many people on the
web site that he was a member of. He shared dozens of great stories,
talked with so many friends there about rods and freely gave of his

'57 through '59 until I quit school and joined the army. We did
our share of hot rodding back then in our '49 & 50 Ford's. Jay talks
about some of it in his book; "California Hot Rodder", I am
not going to say what nickname he gave me for his stories, but if you
read the book and ask me nicely, I might just tell you! Jay, you

Brother Korea Defense Service Veteran
April 30, 1943 - May 22, 2003
Cecil was married to Norma, his wife of 34 years, they had 1 Son (Scott)
and 1 Daughter (Tina). He also leaves behind a brother and sister
and 3 grandchildren.
Cecil was a Korea Defense Service
Veteran having served in Korea in 1963-1964.
Cecil served honorably and was discharged with the rank of Sgt.
I do not remember when Cecil and I first
crossed paths however I think it was in my old guestbook (now gone).
Cecil was always sending me all kinds of neat things, from veteran affairs
items to all kinds of good jokes.
I am gratified to know that Cecil knew that he was getting the KDSM and
the last message that I received from him about the KDSM stated how
pleased he was that it was going to happen.
I never met Cecil in person, but we did talk on the phone once or twice
and the email was never cold for too long - Cecil, it is MY loss!
Brother, we will meet in Fiddlers Green!
But NOT Goodbye!

Bill served in the U.S. Navy, 1961 - 1967 aboard ship as a radar repairman
during the Mercury Project. Other service information is not
available as Bill did not talk about his military service very often.
Bill was a 'one of a kind', one you
don't find every day, a true genius
in every sense of the word - his IQ was one of the highest, as seen in
everything he did and said. Every word and action was carefully
thought out before it was executed.
Bills last job was a computer scientist
for a Las Vegas Utility company
and until recently, with his never ending thirst for knowledge,
a student at UNLV.
Bill held many degrees, Sadly, I do not know which ones, he was also an amateur
radio operator holding an Extra Class License as WB7RRA.
Bill was the blood brother that I never had, and he is missed more
than he could ever have imagined!
