It doesn’t look easy!

We have quite a few people who have made names for themselves that are pretty darn extraordinary! If you know someone else who has a story to share about what they’ve been up to, or if that person is you, please let me know.

February 23, 2019 – Ken Tonnissen died about two months ago in Vermont, where he lived, and his obituary was just published in the Barre Montepelier Times Argus newspaper:

Here is the text of Ken’s obituary:

Kenneth Martin Tonnissen Jan. 15, 1951 – Dec. 28, 2018 CHELSEA — Ken Tonnissen, a longtime resident of central Vermont, died on Dec. 28, 2018, in the company of his family. Ken was born on Jan. 15, 1951, in Daly City, California. As a boy, Ken self-enlisted in the Cub Scouts. As a teen, he earned the rank of Eagle Scout, which fewer than 5 percent of Scouts do, and was welcomed into Order of the Arrow, Scouting’s National Honor Society. Scouts helped Ken develop a lifelong love of nature, the outdoors and the open road, which he lived out in many rambles across America and in the wilds of Vermont. After coming East as a young man, Ken lived in northern Pennsylvania and on Maine’s Peaks Island before moving to the Green Mountain State, where he lived for 28 years. Ken made his living as a computer programmer, working for many years for Rush Institute for Healthy Aging and teaching at Woodbury College in Montpelier. But he gave his heart to bluegrass. A Founding Father of both the Putnamville Revenooers and The Trailerblazers, Ken lent his considerable pipes and his six-string and dobro handiwork to the standards of Bill Monroe, Doc Watson, the Stanley Brothers and many more. Musically, Ken was an Americana omnivore and at gig or picking session, he was apt to pull out an old jug band classic, a country weeper, or even “Princess Poo-Poo-Ly Has Plenty Papaya,” which he seldom completed due to fits of laughter. His original song, “Where the Graveyards Used to Be,” which appears on the Revenooers only recording, reflects Ken’s love for the America of old. He was also a fan of natural history books, detective novels, old movies and Rocky and Bullwinkle. Long before it was cool, Ken was a lifelong learner. As a young man, he pursued an associate degree in forestry. As an older one, he earned an associate degree in Prevention and Community Development at Woodbury. Anyone who knew Ken well also knew his canine companions, whom Ken loved beyond measure. Scruff and Sassafras, Java and Dobro all traveled at Ken’s side in the passenger seats of his various rigs and lay at his feet as he worked and played. Their lives were enriched by Ken’s kindness and generosity: few dogs ate better or enjoyed more attention. Ken’s love of animals extended beyond the canine, and sheep, chickens, cats, llamas, goats, alpacas and doves all thrived under his capable care. Ken also cared about people and gave his time to various good causes, including volunteering at the Randolph Food Shelf and serving on its board of directors. Ken is survived by his son, Zach and daughter-in-law Sandra Lory, of Orange; his son, Josh, daughter-in-law Katie Tonnissen and grandson Adric, of Aptos, California; his stepson, Jeremy Reef, of Queensbury, New York; and his sister, Beverly, of Santa Rosa, California. He also leaves his former wife, Barbara Gustafson-Reef, to whom he was married for 25 years. Donations in memory of Ken may be made to the Randolph Food Shelf and the Central Vermont Human Society. A celebration and memorial of Ken’s life will be held in the spring. To stay informed about plans for the service, email

July 21st 1951 – January 4th 2019

Joseph Anthony Ratto passed away suddenly on January 4, 2019 at the age of 67. He was born in San Francisco to Beverly Kenyon and Emilio Joseph Anthony Ratto on July 21, 1951. He graduated from Westmoor High School in 1969, and attended college in California where he earned his major in music with an art minor.

He moved with his family to Washington where he finished his apprenticeship in 1978 and worked in construction, eventually forming J.A.Ratto Company. He was engaged in local politics, educational and professional organizations such as CITC, BIAW, MBA and others.

His charitable contributions touched the lives of many. He loved music, and was a proficient classical, rock, and blues guitarist, as well as a poet. He also loved art, and was an avid reader.

He is preceded in death by his mother Beverly. He is survived by his son Nate, his daughter Bianca and their families. As well as their mother Marilyn, his brother Jim and his family, his father Emilio, and many loving friends. His memorial service will be held at 2pm Saturday January 26th at Chapel of the Resurrection on the campus of Cedar Park Church.

From Linda: I got to know Joe at the reunions; I don’t remember him from high school. Now I’m learning how busy he was in music and art, and I’m sure he was great as a contractor, too. Joe loved identifying himself as a Westmoor classmate, loved all of us, and enjoyed coming to the reunions. He’d be the first one to sign up and to show up. Joe, you will be very much missed at our big 5-0 reunion in September. RIP.

January 4, 2019 – Kenneth Tonnissen died last month. His very good friend, Gary Miller, wrote this on Facebook: “The world lost an amazing person, and I lost a great friend. Ken Tonnissen had a bang-on sense of a humor and a creative, curious mind. He was a guitar picker who knew a billion bluegrass, country, jazz, and jug band tunes, and he sang ’em all with gusto, right up until the week before he left us. We hung out together for almost 20 years, playing tunes, drinking coffee, fishing for trout, and talking about everything from Bullwinkle and Rocky to the wonders of the theremin. I can’t recall a single time that we didn’t have fun. Ken never traveled solo; he always came in the company of one of his beloved canines, with whom he had a special communion. He loved his family and his friends, and was especially proud to have become a grandfather. One of his last musical performances was recording a tune for his grandson to hear. I will miss him.”

August 22,2017 – Jack Fuller has reported the sad news that Divi Fajardin died in 2013. Jack and Divi were married for six years.

Jackie Prince Cummings remembers her friendship with Divi as being very nice.

August 19, 2017 – Gary Fleischauer has reported the sad news that Terrie Stevenson Powers died recently. Several people have good memories of their friendship with Terrie:
* Dave Spieth: Terrie worked for many years as a cocktail waitress at Westlake Joe’s (in the bar/lounge), and I connected with her as a classmate well beyond H.S. She had a pronounced limp, from an auto accident I believe. She had a sweet, gracious demeanor.
She lived in Broadmoor, I think in the house she grew up in.
* Jackie Prince (responding to Dave’s comments): That’s how I remember her as well. Last time I saw her was at Joe’s before they closed for the remodeling. She mentioned to me about the car accident so, you are right about that. She was a very nice lady & glad I got to talk to her when I did. Gone way too soon!
* Gary Fleischauer: She lived three houses up from me on 89th St. and lived there all her life as far as I know. She was such a nice person that when I was six I decided to marry her.
* Cynthia Montoya Paniagua: Breaks my heart hearing this. We were such good friends in grade school. I spent many nights over her house. She was an only child so her parents always let me stay there. They were so cool. They had this player piano we use to play and sing our hearts out to. I remember too, I believe her mom was Italian, we stomped grapes in our bare feet in big wooden barrels. I will always remember her as a child. RIP my childhood friend.
* Victoria Abt: I had forgotten about the player piano, Cyn. We were in kindergarten through high school together. She was such a kind person.
Here is Terrie’s obituary:
Terrie Ann Powers
September 3, 1951 – August 16, 2017

On Wednesday morning, August 16th, 2017, the world lost an unbelievably wonderful lady, Terrie Ann Powers.
Terrie loved everybody, and everyone loved Terrie. She really loved her wonderful life in Broadmoor Village. On the other hand, we could argue for days what her most extreme commitment was.
Her complete love for the S.F. Giants, or her frightening ugly hatred for the LA Dodgers. Her other commitment was her job at Joe’s of Westlake. She worked there as the best cocktail waitress ever for over 35 years, and loved every minute of it. There were times when we would see people on the street, and quickly she would say, “that’s a Manhattan over ice and a beer,” from knowing them as customers at Joe’s.
I guess the Big Bartender in the sky decided it was time for him to be as lucky. Following her wishes, we are going to celebrate her wonderful life with a party at Original Joe’s of Westlake on Friday Sept. 8th. Cocktails from 5-9pm.

A longtime Glen Ellen resident, Gaye was born on August 24, 1951 in Lancaster, CA to Faye and Bob Abbey and she was raised in Daly City. Gaye was known for her creative flair and graduated with a degree in fashion design. She will forever be remembered as a glamorous woman with a keen sense of style. They say big things come in small packages and that was definitely Gaye, small in stature but so very big in all the ways that count. Her generosity knew no limits and if you needed something she would give it to you straight from the heart, expecting nothing in return. Her passions in life were simple and included an immeasurable love for her family and friends, walking her dogs and caring for her beautiful home and garden in Glen Ellen where she resided for 34 years. Gaye is survived by her husband and sweetheart of 45 years, Gary D’Acquisto; daughters Brooke (D’Acquisto) Agresti and Alexa D’Acquisto; son-in-law Aric Agresti; granddaughter Giuliana Agresti; sister Caye Rowe and brother Shay Abbey. Gaye also leaves behind several close relatives including nieces and nephews and a host of dear friends, all of whom played a very important role in her life.

Her gentle smile, kind heart and extravagant spirit brought great joy to many. A Celebration of Life will take place at Cornerstone Sonoma on Thursday, August 9 at 4:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to Canine Companions for Independence in honor of Gaye’s memory.

March 18, 2016 – With great sadness, Steve Powell (Westmoor 1969) has  died. Here is a copy of his obituary from the Contra Costa Times (East Bay):
December 16, 1950 – March 18, 2016
Resident of Danville. Steve Powell was a fun-loving, party-throwing, strong, loud, kind man. He spent his early years as a football star. He received a full ride football scholarship to San Jose State University where repeated concussions led to the end of his football career. Steve joined the Police Academy, which was his calling. In no time, he was receiving commendations for his excellent service. Shortly after joining the force, he married his high school sweetheart, the love of his life, Christine (Noero) Powell, and upon starting their family, Steve left the force to have more time to dedicate to his girls. No career ever captured his heart the way police work did, but as father to Jennifer Powell, Stacey Hummell, and Annie Powell, Father-in-Law to Zach Hummell, and grandfather to Ava Crouse, Micah Tannenbaum, and Kaia Hummell, his heart was full. Many of us benefitted from Steve’s abundant goodwill. He’d be the first to donate his time, his ingenuity, and his love.

To honor his generous spirit, we ask that in lieu of flowers, you please donate to: for the ongoing research into the prevention of CTE and the encouragement of concussion prevention in athletics.
