Kenneth Jack Bisio Obituary
Kenneth "Jack" Bisio 1927-2013 Resident of Castro Valley How do you sum up the life of someone like Jack Bisio in a few lines or paragraphs in a newspaper. You can't. How do you try to explain to people who read the obituaries the larger than life personality of someone like Jack Bisio. You don't. We can list the stats like his age, where he lived and who's left behind but to trying to explain someone like Jack in black and white is not only improbable, it's impossible. You had to experience him. He had an uncanny gift of making you laugh or at least raising a corner of your mouth or shaking your head in awe of the amazing man you just met. Jack had a dictionary of nicknames for those he loved and was fond of. His honest, often unsolicited opinions of your latest style or possible weight gain was ended with "Who Loves Ya Baby?!?" Those who knew Jack well often heard his favorite expressions such as "Eat Your Heart Out", and most recently "Cash or Couch". Jack was ever the ladies man, and would share that he was constantly "looking for his soon to be ex-wife" though everyone knew his heart belonged to Mable. Jack understood the importance of hard work and he also understood the value of family. Even if you weren't blood, you were still considered family. His business, Jack's Trailer Sales in Castro Valley, California (aka "The Ranch") began in 1960, is family owned and operated and remains in business to this day. "The Ranch" is a safe haven where friends old and new gather to have a cup of coffee, buy some hay, get a trailer light fixed, shoot the breeze, share their woes, share their happiness and an occasional shot of Tequila with Jack. In the company of loving family and amazing friends Jack was called to be with his wife, Mable, on March 25 at his home which is right where he wanted to be. He is survived by his daughter Suzie and sons Kenny and Jay, grandchildren Chris, Jaci, Jessica and Maria, great-grandchild Kaycee-Lou and countless extended family and friends. You know who you are! Services for Jack will be held at Chapel of the Chimes Memorial Park located at 32992 Mission Blvd. in Hayward. Visitation will be on April 2 between 5:00 and 9:00 p.m. and the funeral service will be on April 3 at 1:00 p.m. Reception will follow at "The Ranch". Donations in lieu of flowers can be sent to Castro Valley Breakfast Lions Club, Buon Tempo Club and The Justin Cowboy Crisis Fund.
