Born:  Dec 04 1929
Died:   May 5, 2018

From Ralph's daughter, Heidi Brenchley:  "Dad went to the ER last Wednesday saying he had leg and hip pain. After running some tests, the Dr. found his prostate cancer had returned. He passed on Saturday. I was fortunate to be with him for which I am grateful. He was a wonderful father, husband, grandfather and true friend.  I know he cherished his friendships through the Westwood Rotary Group. He loved talking about all of you and your adventures. He will truly be missed. I spoke with Steve Scherer and we discussed my coming up to one of the Rotary lunches to see all of you.  I will let you know when that will be. We plan to have a small ceremony here in San Diego at the Miramar Veterans Cemetary for both he and my Mom. Have not made those arrangements yet."

A long-time member of the Westwood Village Rotary Club, Bill filled the classification "funeral director" with distinction.  So very much can be said about Bill, a very unique and wonderful man.  Perhaps a visit to his Facebook page will shed some light.

The Soldiers Project Beth OlsonIt's VA (Veterans Administration) Day. We have dual speakers sharing the program on projects close to their heart assisting our community neighbor, the VA. Beth Olson will give members an insight to "The Soldiers Project." Her organization provides free psychiatric and social services to troubled vets. LaSandra Maze is responsible for "The 1887 Fund," a non-profit whose mission is to restore five historic buildings on the VA campus. The first major project is the restoration of the Wadsworth Chapel, a Victorian style dual chapel that brought together both Protestant and Catholic faiths in the early 1900's. The VA  is a primary focus of our Club's Community Avenue of Service. Come and listen!
