Herren, Rodger Scott  
Rodger Scott Herren June 21, 1953 - July 25, 2016 Resident of Fremont Rodger was born at the US Navy hospital in Oakland on June 21st, 1953. He spent most of his life in San Jose, where he graduated from Andrew P. Hill high school in 1971. Rodger was the middle child of nine and it was a large, loving family. He is survived by his siblings: Lee, Cheri, Brenda, Karl, Brett, Darryl, and Roy. HIs mom Harriet "Bunny", dad Vernon, and older brother Glenn have passed on. Rodger was most notably known for being a Fremont police officer. During his 28 year career he was training for 25 of them. Just off of probation himself he started teaching in his 3rd year and never stopped. Even after retirement in 2004 he still taught at several Academy locations around the Bay Area. In 1979, he married Patty and they had a long, but not long enough, loving marriage of 37 years. He is incredibly missed by her and their two wonderful children Gwen and Alex. He was a loving husband and father, always involved and always available. When Patty was out of town as a flight attendant, he was Mr. Mom. He was extremely athletic and ever the teacher, he taught his kids golf, tennis, swimming, and any other endeavor that interested them. As a family, they were constantly traveling, doing activities or just relaxing having dinner together. On July 25th, 2016, Rodger passed away at his home in Fremont. He has gone to be with the Lord and is free of the pain of that stinking cancer. He is missed by too many relatives and friends to list. We love you all for your support and constant prayers. There will be a memorial service on Saturday, October 1st, 1pm at Centerville Presbyterian Church, 4360 Central Ave., Fremont, CA 94536. If you feel so inclined, in lieu of flowers, please make donations to the Navy Seal Foundation. View the online memorial for Rodger Scott Herren

Jardin, Carol R.  
Carol R. Jardin Resident of Hayward Carol Rita Jardin, 93, passed away peacefully on Sept 20, 2016. Her long-time best friend Betty Smith was by her side. She was a native of Lowell, MA and a resident of Hayward for 60 years. She is survived by her daughters Christine, Janice and Sandra, her son Robert, and her brother Raymond. She was preceded in death by her husband Anthony R. Jardin. In her youth, Carol worked as a seamstress in Lowell, and applied those skills later to clothe both herself and her young daughters in beautifully-made dresses. She also enjoyed needlework, producing many lovely afghans, knitted sweaters, and cross-stitch artwork to give as gifts, and to decorate her home. She was gifted in the kitchen; her lemon meringue pies and Christmas fruitcakes will always be remembered. Her children also fondly remember the wonderful applesauce and jams she made from backyard fruit. When her youngest daughter started school at Palma Ceia elementary, Carol took a position at the school as an instructional aide, which she held for 10 years. She had a passion for jigsaw and crossword puzzles, and also loved playing board and card games, especially with visiting children and grandchildren. She was a huge San Francisco Giants fan. For many years, she listened to every game on the radio, referring to players whose performance disappointed her as 'banana heads'. Later, she was able to attend games in person with daughters and sons-in-law, which she enjoyed immensely. Carol enjoyed her garden, and especially loved her African violets. Later in life, feeding the wildlife in her garden and enjoying their company brought her much joy. She was a devoted member of St. Bede's Catholic Church congregation. A visitation will be held at Holy Angels Funeral & Cremation Center, 1051 Harder Road, Hayward on Thursday Sept. 29 at 10:00 am. A graveside service will follow at 11:00 am at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery. View the online memorial for Carol R. Jardin

Johnson Jr., William J.  
William J. Johnson, Jr. August 14, 1925 - September 21, 2016 Resident of Pleasanton William J. Johnson Jr. was a man of many passions. Those passions came to an end early Wednesday morning, Sept. 21, when he died at the age of 91. He died peacefully in his sleep after undergoing recent surgery. He had been in increasingly failing health for about a month. He died at his home in Pleasanton, Calif. His death came the day after the anniversary of his wife Margaret's birthday. She preceded him in death in July 2011. Bill was born Aug. 14, 1925, in Fayetteville, N.C., to William J. Sr. and Sophronia (Cooper) Johnson. He grew up being called Jack by his family, but after going away to school, he was always known as Bill. During World War II, he worked at the Marine air base at Cherry Point, N.C. After graduating with a degree in mathematics from Appalachian State College where he played tennis, Bill took a job teaching high school math and science and coaching the girls basketball team at Gatesville High School in Gatesville, N.C.. He met his wife, Margaret, on a blind date. For Bill, it was love at first sight, a love that endured until his death. They married Dec. 1, 1956. He was hired as an engineer with the U.S. Geological Survey. He started as a surveyor in the field, then moved to headquarters in Washington, D.C., before transferring and moving his family to California in 1963. He and Margaret raised four sons and one daughter in their house on Farwell Drive in Fremont, Calif. They lived in a tight-knit neighborhood, establishing lifelong bonds with their neighbors Bill had many passions. He loved his job making maps for the U.S. Geological Survey. In the days before satellite imagery, the maps were drawn by hand by engineers such as Bill. Even after his retirement, Bill would go to the USGS office in Menlo Park to help organize and preserve the old maps. As his children grew up, he and Margaret were active in their lives. Bill coached his sons' Little League baseball teams and was a leader in Scouts and the school PTA. He and Margaret rarely missed one of their children's many activities. At least one night a week was spent at the bowling alley as part of the USGS bowling league. In later years, he would travel around the country on bowling teams and several times bowled in national championships. He loved to golf and played on the Pinehurst, N.C., championship golf course a couple of years ago with his son, Michael. A favorite family memory was Sunday breakfasts where Bill would surprise the family with his own recipes for pancakes -- chocolate chips in the pancakes were a favorite, cream corn was not as popular. Mealtime at the Johnson household was always preceded by a family prayer. Thanksgiving dinners were huge affairs, with the extended family and many relatives and close friends. Summers were spent at Lake Tahoe in early years and later at Sun River, Ore., where Bill and Margaret would get matching T-shirts for the grandchildren. The Johnson home was always open to far-flung relatives and friends visiting California. The huge table in the kitchen was often filled with people. Guests were always welcome in the Johnson house. After retirement, Bill established a daily routine, Mass at Holy Spirit Church and a walk around Lake Elizabeth, usually with his camera in hand and a tweed cap on his head. Bill was passionate about photography. In his travels around the country, he would photograph old churches. At family events, he would snap pictures and then rush to the camera store to have prints made of the photos, often before the event was finished. Attending his children's events was replaced with a passion for attending grandchildren's school events after his children grew up and started families of their own. He never lost his Southern charm, although his Southern accent faded a little with the years. He was always the gentleman, holding open doors for women and helping them with their chairs. That charm was especially evident in his love for his wife, whom he cherished through their 54 years of marriage. They moved to The Parkview assisted living facility in Pleasanton in 2009, where he was active in the residents' association. He rarely missed a bingo game and loved playing bridge. Another of his passions was his Catholic faith. For more than three decades, he was a lector at Sunday Mass at Holy Spirit Church in Fremont and taught Confirmation catechism classes. After moving to Pleasanton, Bill would take the bus to Mass on Sundays. Bill is survived by his children, William James (Bridget) of Anamosa, Iowa, Michael (Laura) of Rocklin, Calif., Brian (Crusita) of Fremont, Calif., and Mary Ann (Bob) DeRenzi of Pleasanton, Calif.; 11 grandchildren, Jenna, Jaclyn and James Johnson, Caitlin (Robert) Armstrong, Meghan and Cooper Johnson, Elizabeth Lawlor, Leah and Jessica Johnson, Melissa and Christopher DeRenzi; two great-grandchildren, Wesley and Vincent Armstrong; and longtime neighbors and dear friends, Jack and Adeline Gosen. He was preceded in death by his wife, Margaret; a son, Kevin Johnson; his parents; and his sisters, Elizabeth and Lois. Visitation will be held on Thursday, October 13th, from 5-8pm with a Vigil at 6:30pm at Fremont Chapel of the Roses, 1940 Peralta Blvd., Fremont, CA 94536. Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Friday, October 14th, 11am at Holy Spirit Catholic Church, 37588 Fremont Blvd., Fremont, CA 94536. Private burial at Chapel of the Chimes Memorial Park in Hayward, CA. Memorial donations may be sent to Sister John Marie's Pantry, which assists people living in the Tri-City area of Fremont, Newark and Union City. Send donations in care of St. Joseph Church, P.O. Box 3276, Fremont, CA 94539. View the online memorial for William J. Johnson, Jr.
