Judy (Haley) Daponte

Judy (Haley) Daponte, wife of Dr. Ken Daponte and longtime RPV resident, passed away peacefully at home this week after a long struggle with esophageal cancer. A native of New England and a graduate of Green Mountain College (VT) , Judy provided years of volunteer service both to Mira Catalina Elementary School and Cabrillo Marine Aquarium before serving as Assistant to the President of Marymount College for 12 years. After retiring in 1995, she and her husband Ken spent the next 17 years hiking numerous long-distance routes around the globe, including The Wainwright Way across England, The Santiago Compostela Pilgrim Route in Northern Spain, The Milford Track and Grand Traverse in New Zealand, and a five-country trek around the Alps. Judy's infectious smile, generous spirit, and upbeat attitude won her countless friends,especially among her fellow paddle-tennis players at the Portuguese Bend Club where she was a member for over 40 years. In addition to her husband of 52 years, Judy is survived by son Greg of Los Angeles, daughter Robyn of Reno, NV, and two brothers, two sisters and stepmother on the East Coast.
