Glueck, William Stanley "Bill"  
William "Bill" Stanley Glueck March 14, 1927 – January 30, 2016 Resident of Alamo You always knew when Bill was about to enter a room because his spirit was so bright the room lit up before he arrived. The sky was certainly bright on the night of January 30th. Bill did things his own way. He was never short of words or a really corny joke, therefore, we were not surprised (okay, maybe a little surprised) to learn that he wrote his own Obituary. "Very few people have the opportunity to write their own Obituary. I was born in New Jersey raised in Fresno County, California before enlisting in the U.S. Marine Corp at the age of seventeen. I saw combat on Okinawa and Saipan the rest of my "hitch" was spent in Japan. On returning home, I farmed with my Father in Fresno County. I then married the greatest women in the world, Bernice, and had three wonderful children Fred, Shelly, Michael, and ten superior grandchildren. After leaving the farm I went to work in a profession I had learned in the military and entered the demolition field. I became a demolition contractor and loved every day of my life. I was a founding member of Round Hill Country Club where I made many great friends in the Club and in the County. I did what Public Service I could do forming the County P-5 District and operating as its Director for ten years leading to a great relationship as a civilian working with two excellent sheriffs. Now that I am gone to the great Demolition Job in the sky don't mourn my passing, celebrate the great times and friends I had on this earth." Bill gave us all much to celebrate! Bill and Bernice were married for almost 62 wonderful years. Their love of travel around the world, Raider Football, gin rummy, fine dining with friends and family and their love of golf made for a long and happy marriage and a great life together. He was a loving and caring husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and friend with a wit of lightning speed and unrivaled humor. He truly never met a stranger. He was kind to everyone. It is almost impossible to think of Bill without getting a smile on your face and a warm feeling in your heart. Bill is survived by his three children – Fred (his wife Annelise), Shelly (her husband Pete Thigpen) and Michael (wife Connie); ten grandchildren - Sarah, Elaine (her husband Eric George), Cameron, Scott, Zach (Thigpen), Gavin, Gaylin, Grayson, Gaphne and Garen; two great grandchildren - Evan and Estelle; and his brother Alan Glueck of Denver, Co. You will be dearly missed Colonel. A private family service will be held. A Celebration of his Life will follow on February 12, 2016 from 2 P.M. to 5 P.M..at Round Hill Country Club. Donations can be sent to: Hospice of the East Bay. View the online memorial for William "Bill" Stanley Glueck

Henkel, Mary Anne  
Mary Anne Henkel April 15, 1935 – January 24, 2016 Mary Anne Henkel passed peacefully from Earth to Heaven on January 24, 2016. She was born in Penalosa, Kansas to Lyle and Ida May Dean. She spent the first five years of her life with her five year older sister Betty (Michael and Patrick Gallagher) in that tiny town with no indoor plumbing and baths only once a week. But she loved growing up there! To really know Mary Anne was to understand that she was fiercely proud of her spartan Kansas roots, the tiny town she was from and that she was also extremely proud of our great country! December 7, 1941 changed the life of many American families and the Deans were no exception. Lyle eventually wound up working for Douglas aircraft in Van Nuys and moved the family to California. They eventually settled in Canoga Park and Mary Anne graduated from Canoga High School as the Women's League President. She matriculated to Pierce College and received her degree soon after. Her training was as an Executive Secretary and she worked many interesting jobs during her life. We think she could type a million words a minute or close to that any way. At the beginning she worked for Atomics International, then Computer Sciences Corp, a school for special needs children, the USC Medical Center and finally for world renowned brain researcher Dr. Bruce Miller of UCLA Alzheimer's Research. She loved the many interesting jobs she had during her life time. She was sharp as a tack, extremely charismatic and a giant asset for any company. She continued to work for the family real estate business until the day she passed. In 1958 at the age of 23, she married Richard J. Henkel whom she knew from middle school. Richard survived his wife of 57 years. They had two children, Cathy Yeich (Steve) of Palos Verdes Estates and Carl Henkel (Ana) of Redondo Beach. She is also survived by her grandchildren Eric Philip Yeich (15), Neil Andrew Yeich (9), Victoria Anne Henkel (10) and step-grandson Gabriel Miranda (15). She was an extremely loving Granny who loved to buy toys for her grandkids. She was surrounded by a loving family all the days of her life and she believed this was God's greatest blessing to her. It is here we can and should brag: she was honestly always the brightest light in any room. By far! Everybody wanted to be near her because of her wit, intellect, and charisma. People just naturally gravitated to her. She was FUN with a capital F! She could play the piano and ukulele and knew hundreds of songs to sing. She also had the fastest feet in town. To behold Richard and Mary Anne dancing was a thing of beauty and artwork. She was a devout Christian and had a deep spiritual connection with her lord and savior Jesus Christ and her namesake the Virgin Mary. Services for Mary Anne will be at St. Lawrence Martyr in Redondo Beach at 2 p.m. on Friday, February 5, 2016. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the American Kidney Fund.
