In memory of my beloved sister, Jenny Ann Kleinman, who died after a brave battle with breast cancer. She is survived by a beautiful daughter, Erica Lynne Boquist. I treasure the time we had together and I am grateful to her for being such a kind and loving big sister.
Michael (aka Art Abuse), my beloved husband, passed away on February 28th of this year after a five year battle with melanoma that went to his brain. He was an accomplished artist and head of security at the Warfield and Filmore theaters in San Francisco, CA. Upon retiring he was presented with his own Filmore poster which can be viewed on Wolfgang's Vault online. He also designed 2 other Filmore posters, did stage design and painting and excellent taxidermy fish. He was memorialized at the Great American Music Hall which was filled with family and friends from all over and accompanied by a performance by his friend, Steve Earle. He is survived by his wife, me, and his beloved pug, Poko. For more information or pictures of Michael or his artwork please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Beloved son, brother and friend. Bob or "Doc" as so many of his friends called him, was well known in Whittier for his success as a special effects artist in the film industry. He traveled all over the world designing and building attractions for amusement parks, including Knotts Berry Farm's "Scary Farm" in 1992. He was 38 when he died from pancreatitis. Burial: Rose Hills Memorial Park Whittier Los Angeles County California, USA
I am so sorry to hear about Doc's passing. We were very close friends through school and I will miss him dearly. We seem to lose contact with so many that have touched our lives but that doesn't mean we do not think of them often.
It breaks my heart to see that Brent Priest has passed away. He was instrumental in helping to coach me in archery (the only sport I excelled in) during our senior year. He was a dear & sweet friend. I believe he served in the Marines, then raised his disabled daughter alone after the child's mother abandoned them both shortly after the child was born. Does anyone know what became of his daughter? She was 4 years old at our 10 year reunion in 1984, so she'd be 32 if she's still alive. Brent, I'll miss you forever and cherish your friendship always.

Favorite song he sang was the Wanderer.
