Berthold, Erich Robert  
Erich Robert Berthold Pleasant Hill Erich Berthold died at home on Dec 14, 2014, 1-1/2 years after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Born in 1920 in Kiel, Germany, he immigrated to the USA with his parents in 1925, entering the country via Ellis Island. His family moved to California, first to Auberry, then Fresno, and finally settling in Clyde in the San Francisco east bay area, where he spent his formative years. Erich served in the quartermaster corps in WWII, moving supplies for the Army in California and the south Pacific. He acquired his US citizenship during his military service, and received an Honorable Discharge. Attending UC Berkeley on the GI Bill, Erich earned his bachelor's degree in architecture and met his first wife Jan. They were married in the summer of 1949, and moved to Pleasant Hill in 1952, the place they called home for the rest of their lives. Erich was a devoted husband and father, curious by nature, and a doer who always had a project in the works. Wood working and carpentry were life-long avocations for Erich; he made many of the pieces of furniture, landscape features, and interior improvements in his home. His garage was his shop and the floor was often covered with saw dust. His open garage door was an invitation for friends and passers-by to come in and chat and occasionally seek advice on projects they were working on. Erich enjoyed the outdoors, and shared his love of wild settings with his family, taking them on car-camping trips when the children were young, and later on, back-packing trips in the Sierras. At 60, he learned to fly and earned his glider pilot's license. He loved soaring, and enjoyed taking family and friends up for a ride, occasionally letting them take the stick for a moment. About the same time that he learned to fly, Erich and Jan learned to scuba dive, and thus began over 20 years of scuba diving trips around the globe. In his 80s he was usually the oldest diver on the boat, and could stay down longer on a tank of air than most of the other divers. Erich and Jan loved to travel, visiting all 7 continents. Pins in a world map on his den wall show his many destinations. Erich's many hobbies included model railroading, gardening, cooking, drying fruit, smoking meat, pickling, fly fishing and fly tying, jewelry making, and sewing. When he began a new hobby, he would totally immerse himself, reading books and magazines, taking classes, seeking advice from experts, and ultimately, learning by doing. Erich not only pursued personal interests, but also gave back to the community, serving on the City of Pleasant Hill's Architectural Review Commission and as Board Chairman for the Diablo Vista Water System. After the Loma Prieta earthquake, he came out of retirement to serve as a building inspector for the State of California. After Jan died, Erich married Madge, his love and partner for the last 12 years of his life. Madge loved to travel as much as Erich and they continued their globetrotting and scuba diving adventures throughout their marriage, even embarking on cruises to Mexico and Hawaii after Erich's diagnosis. Erich lived life with gusto. We will miss him. Erich is survived by his second wife Madge, his children, Robert, Janell, and Nels, and his grandchildren, Kristopher, Ryan, Daniel, Jolene, Scott, and Eli. Memorial services will be held on Saturday, January 17 at 3:00 pm at the Mount Diablo Unitarian Universalist Church, located at 55 Eckley Lane, Walnut Creek, CA.

In her spare time she was also an active volunteer for several organizations, including the Marin Community Foundation and Driftwood society. In 1969, the family bought a small cabin in Lake Tahoe where Doris enjoyed spending time with her family in the summer and winter months. In later years she enjoyed vacationing in Hawaii, and the island of Maui in particular. Doris was a very devoted wife, mother and grandmother. She loved nothing more than spending time with her family. She loved to laugh, throw parties, see her many friends, and enjoy life, which she lived fully. Toys for Tots was a charity close to Doris's heart. She held annual Christmas parties for her friends and always included in her invitations the request to bring an unwrapped toy for a needy child. Doris was preceded in death by her husband, Alfredo and is survived by her daughter Lisa, son Ron, daughter-in-law Beth, and grandchildren Nicole Montgomery (Michael) and Kevin Caceres.

Campbell, Norman  
Norman Campbell June 3, 1928-November 22, 2014 Aptos Norman Gordon Campbell, 86, of Aptos, passed away unexpectedly on November 22, 2014 as a result of a fall. Born June 3, 1928 in Palo Alto to Nan (Flint) and Benjamin Campbell, Norm lived most of his life in California. Norm had a passionate love of Huntington Lake in the Sierra Nevada mountains and Kauai, Hawaii. He loved to build things, from benches to cabins, a skill he learned from his father. He was a proud member of the Masonic Temple for over 40 years. Norm was best known for being a consummate salesman and knew just about every detail of the cement/concrete business and was always happy to inform you of the difference between the two. He successfully sold cement until he was 81 years old. Norm took extreme pride in his grandsons, Owen and Benjamin Perry. He is survived by his grandsons, his daughter Jill, and her husband Bill Perry. He was predeceased by his son, Myron Donald Campbell, as well as his younger siblings, Myron Campbell and Sally Nelson. Norm had a big personality and his spirit was captured in his love of his many good friends, good food, his signature look of Hawaiian shirts, and his ability to share stories. A Celebration of Life service will be held Wednesday, March 18, 2015 at 6 p.m. at the Aptos Community Methodist Church. In lieu of flowers, Norm would probably be happiest if all his friends registered and voted as members of the Republican party.

Born in Orangeville, Utah, Gary Childs attended Carbon High School before moving to the Monterey Peninsula in 1952 where he enrolled at MPC and played basketball and baseball. While in school, he met the love of his life, Janet (Mickey) McFail, who he married in 1956. Drafted by the army a year later, Gary completed his basic training at Fort Ord. After his time in the service, the couple moved to Ashland, Oregon where Gary attended Southern Oregon College and discovered his true passion: teaching.

Outside of the classroom, he devoted many years of his life to coaching, an endeavor that gave him great joy. Whether working with youngsters in Little League or coaching at the high school level, Coach Childs thoroughly enjoyed sharing his knowledge and passion for the game. A devoted spouse, parent, grandparent and friend, Gary cherished the time he spent with loved ones. He especially savored the opportunity to make others laugh, relying on his keen wit and his remarkable storytelling. Those who knew him well will remember his infectious smile, his work ethic, and his commitment to his family.
