Facette, Enid  
Enid Irgens Facette The Lord called Enid Irgens Facette home on May 19th. She had a brief battle with lung cancer and was comfortable and pain free when she passed at home in bed with loved ones by her side. She was born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan on September 3, 1928 and was the youngest of seven beautiful girls. The family moved to the United States shortly after her birth, taking up residence in Superior Wisconsin. She married William Irgens when she was 22, and subsequently had three sons with him. The family moved to California in 1955 and resided in South Torrance for 20 years. She was very active in her family's activities, and even ran the snack bar at the Torrance American Little League for 2 years. She loved to raise orchids in her greenhouse. Enid and Bill then moved to their beachfront condo in Redondo Beach in 1975. She worked at Del Amo Stationary store in the Post Office and as a bookkeeper for over 20 years. She cherished the deep friendships she made with her coworkers that last to this day. Several years after her first husband Bill passed, she remarried her childhood friend Bob Facette and retired. They split time between her place in Redondo and Bob's place in Atlanta, visiting their new extended family and all their grandchildren. After Bob passed in 2012, she spent her remaining years in Redondo Beach, doing her crochet and cooking for family and friends. She was a very loving person and loved to give her crochet away to friends and family, and sometimes to complete strangers. If you came to visit her you would never leave empty handed. She is survived by her three sons, Jeffery William Irgens, Lawrence John Irgens, and David Clark Irgens. She is also survived by her grandchildren: Shane Irgens and his wife Jessica Irgens and their son Owen Irgens; Jenna Irgens; Shalyce Irgens Childers and her husband Kyle Childers and their new baby Killian Childers; and Devarae Irgens Loomis and her husband Mychal Loomis. Both Jessica Irgens and Devarae Irgens Loomis are expecting in June. The Memorial service will be held at the Resurrection Lutheran Church at 330 Palos Verdes Blvd. in Redondo Beach on Sunday May 31st at 1pm. Enid was a member of the congregation there for 60 years. In lieu of flowers the family requests a contribution to the American Lung Association. Sign the guest book at www.dailybreeze.com .

Ferrell, Jack L.  
John "Jack" Louis Ferrell, 87, of Rancho Palos Verdes, passed away peacefully Monday evening, May 11, 2015 of pneumonia. He was born in Cleveland, Ohio, on July 8, 1927, to Louis and Clara Ferrell. Jack graduated from the Benedictine High School in Cleveland, Ohio. He met his beloved wife Rosemary while attending John Carroll University. He studied and earned a Bachelor of Science in Manufacturing Engineering from Carnegie Institute of Technology at Carnegie Mellon University. He enjoyed the camaraderie of the Delta Upsilon fraternity. He served in World War II in the Pacific Theater in the Navy on USS LCS (L)-51 from 1943-45. He became a Grand Knight of a local chapter of the Knights of Columbus in Ohio. He began his career in manufacturing at Cleveland Graphite Bronze, Racine Hydraulics, and Parker-Hannifin. He was also employed by TRW REDA Pump working with the manufacturing and implementation of water and oil pumps in the Midwestern United States as well as advised many manufacturing processes in China and the Middle East. He was also employed at TRW rising to Vice President of Manufacturing and Systems, for the Space and Defense Sector. He acted as President of the Society of Manufacturing Engineers and Chairman of the Board of the Friends of Cabrillo Marine Aquarium where he was integral in acquiring funds to expand the educational space. He is now Director Emeritus alongside John Olguin at the aquarium. He then served the California Polytechnic University at San Luis Obispo as a member of the President's Cabinet, and was the founding Executive Director of the California Manufacturing Technology Center for Los Angeles County. He truly loved mentoring the educational excellence and development of others and fostered an environment of learning. He notoriously said many a time he brought home a report card with a string of A's followed by an F (in behavior). An avid sailor and golfer, he was most at home on his cherished sailboat Sea-Du-Cin and enjoyed golfing with the Grumpy Gramps and his grandson. A humble, loving, and humorous man of integrity and intellect, he lived a rich and fulfilled life having experiences so broad and memories so unfathomably deep, he loved to tell his stories and pull his famous one-liners. He traveled the world and was involved with global influence of manufacturing and technology. When faced with a challenge, he would ask himself, "What's the worst that could happen?" and offered the same question to others asking him for advice. His wife of 64 years, Rosemary; sister, Carolyn Rice; daughter, Kathleen (James) Yinger; son, John (Rena) Ferrell; three grandchildren, Cynthia Ferrell, Sean Ferrell, and David Yinger; and one great-grandchild Caleb Ferrell survive him. He will be greatly missed by all those whose lives he touched and those who admire him. Visitation is from 2 to 4 p.m. May 31 at Rice Mortuary in Redondo Beach followed by a prayer service. The Funeral Service will be held at 1 pm, June 1 at St. John Fisher Catholic Church, Rancho Palos Verdes. The family of Jack would also like to extend our most heartfelt gratitude to the army of caregivers who helped to lessen his suffering over the past year and a half provided by Always Right Home Care and Comfort Keepers. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Cabrillo Marine Aquarium and the Alzheimer's Association in his memory are appreciated. Visit www.lafuneral.com to send the family messages and share memories.
