Barry-Cruz, Marie  
Marie passed away peacefully at her parents' home in Colfax, Calif., of ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease). She is survived by her husband Darrell Bear Cruz, her parents Jim and Carol Barry, brother Max (Molly) Barry and nieces Samantha and Sierra. Numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins mourn the loss of Marie. She was pre-deceased by her grandparents JL 'Tom' and Marie Bellomy and Wes and Maxine Barry. Marie, born in Carmichael, Calif., was raised in Colfax. She was active in sports and student government at Colfax Elementary and High Schools including basketball and soccer. Marie earned her Bachelor's Degree from Humboldt State University in Wildlife Biology. Proud of her Native American heritage she worked for the Hoopa Tribe in northern California, and later for the Washoe Tribe of Nevada and California where she earned numerous awards and received national recognition for her outstanding work. During her tenure with the Washoe Tribe she wrote many grants to fund and develop the Environmental Protection Department that eventually employed 30 people. As Environmental Director she developed and implemented programs for clean drinking water for the four communities of the tribe earning an award from the State of Nevada for the Best Drinking Water in the State of Nevada; created a recycling yard and cleaned the communities of hazardous waste; had allotment land markers posted; lead flood mitigation work to ensure the safety of the people; revegetated damaged landscapes; and established a yearly Earth Day event. She worked to reintroduce Lahonton cutthroat trout to Lake Tahoe where now a small population is making a comeback and is responsible for a road sign marking a summit by the Washoe name 'simi dime' on Highway 395. Marie spent countless hours and her own money where grant funds could not be sent to insure the program succeeded. Her priority was to keep the people, fish and wildlife, and environment safe. Marie worked with various federal, state and local governments, sat on the four state Regional Operations Committee, and the National Operations Committee that includes all fifty states, providing a voice for environmental issues for the tribe. Her accomplishments are too numerous to list. Marie put her heart and soul into making the lives and environment better for the Washoe people. Her hard work and involvement drew local, state and national attention to the Washoe Tribe. Marie enjoyed horseback riding, horse endurance racing, snowboarding, skiing, hiking, backpacking, traveling, reading, and being with her family and friends. She gave generously to many organizations, foundations, and educational programming. Her ready smile, enthusiasm, and love of life touched everyone that she met. She was too young to leave us and we all will miss her dearly.

Coffelt, Michael Allen  
Michael Allen Coffelt 7/7/1957 - 8/25/2016 Michael's journey of life began on July 7, 1957 in San Jose, Calif. Michael was only 59 years old when he passed away peacefully at home on Thursday, August 25, 2016. He was surrounded by those who loved him and held him dear. Michael succumbed to a 20 month courageous fight against the incurable, debilitating disease Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) which is often known as Lou Gehrig's disease. Michael grew up and went to school in San Jose. He graduated from Yerba Buena High School in 1975. He received several swimming and percussion scholarships to attend Santa Clara University. While attending college he competed against some of the USA Olympic greats in swimming. Michael lived in San Jose until 1988 when he moved his family to Auburn, Calif. He enjoyed living in the Sierra Foothills and all its beauty. Michael loved riding his Harley through the Sierras and wine country region, for it gave him a sense of freedom. He was passionate about his bike, enjoyed the camaraderie and rode for many great causes. Michael was very active in the Rotary Club and as a Director for the Salvation Army for many years. He felt it was important to give back to others. Michael was a self-made entrepreneur having one of the first major companies in the independent financing industry. At a very young age, Michael learned the art of negotiating and was good with numbers. His first job, at the age of seven, was selling golf balls to the golfers at the local golf course. He knew how to make a deal happen even at the young age of seven. Michael had found his niche in business - sales. He worked for several companies including Trans Leasing International and GE Capital. In every company that Michael was employed by, he was recognized as the top salesperson in vendor financing sales (he wouldn't have had it any other way). In 1999 Michael started his own financing company and was very successful for over 16 years until he was forced to retire due to being diagnosed with ALS. Michael met the love of his life in August of 2006. He married his love, Cheryl Nelson, on August 30, 2008. They began their life together by building a vineyard from scratch on their property. After a few years, Michael decided that he was going to try his hand at wine making. He made an award winning primitivo wine that was loved by all. Michael always lived life to the fullest. He traveled all over the world, enjoying different cultures and had visited all 50 states in the USA. You could find him at a Black Tie event one night and the next day working the vineyard on his tractor. Michael played professional racquetball, was a great golfer, loved all water sports especially waterskiing, scuba diving, boating and swimming. He loved to fish, hunt and garden. He was a great cook and dancer. Music was a big part of Michael's life. He played percussion in some of the biggest night spots in the USA. Playing at the House of Blues in New Orleans and Chicago was a highlight of his life. Michael is survived by his beloved wife, Cheryl Coffelt; his daughter, Rachel (Ryan) LaCasse of Sacramento, Calif.; two step-daughters: Jacquilyn (Jon) Duncan of Roseville, Calif., and Ilissa (Steven) Bobst of Citrus Heights, Calif.; his grandchildren who he adored: Trevor Duncan, Lily Bobst, Isadora LaCasse plus one grandson on the way; his brother David (Mona) Coffelt of Redmond, Wash.; two neices: Becky Coffelt and Laura Coffelt; plus many loving relatives and lifelong friends. Michael also leaves behind his faithful canine companions, Tanner and Harley, who stayed by his side until the end. Michael was preceded in death by his parents Doyt and Fay Coffelt; his Uncle Marvin and Aunt Florence Coffelt, who meant the world to him. Michael was so very blessed by the many Angels that came into his life to support him and help him through his journey. They made his world a better place. Friends and family are invited to attend a celebration of Michael's life on Saturday, October 1, 2016 at 11 a.m. For information on event location, please contact the family at: mcoffelt@nationaltlc.com

Dickson, Robert Frank  
Robert Frank Dickson 9/9/1925 - 8/30/2016 Robert Frank Dickson passed away on August 30, 2016, in Coos Bay, Oregon, at the age of 90 years old. He is preceded in death by his father, Frank Sims Dickson, his mother, Gladys (Mette) Dickson and his half brother Bruce Dickson. Bob was born in Oakland, Calif., on September 9, 1925 and raised in Glendale, Calif. Bob enlisted in the Army Air Corps during World War II and flew 27 combat missions over enemy territory in Rhineland, Germany. He was dubbed the "Velvet Fog" (no offense to Mel Torme) by his fellow airman while always crooning Frank Sinatra tunes. Soon after his Honorable Discharge he married Patricia (Peters) Dickson and had three children. They raised their family in Folsom, Calif., in an honest-to-goodness haunted house dating back more than 100 years. Bob worked for Aerojet Propulsion until his retirement. He married Marrietta (Erway) Dickson and moved to Reedsport, Oregon where they have lived the past 28 years. While he enjoyed his days in old Folsom and the haunted house, he could not resist the allure of the Oregon coast for living out his golden years. Bob enjoyed his many wonderful friends, fishing, crabbing, wood working and living by the Umpqua River. Bob is survived by his wife Marrietta (Erway) Dickson; his children Mark (Ann Oberlitner) Dickson, Diane (Jim) Mahan, and Lori (Nick) Bonsignore; his five grandchildren, and two great grandchildren. His life was also enriched by his extended family of Marrietta's two sons, Geoff and Randy Russell and her four grandchildren and three great grandchildren. He is also survived by Patricia Dickson whom long remained a friend, as well as his best friend, Ted Dederick, of Carlsbad, Calif. He was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, and friend. He will be fondly remembered for his easy going manner, optimism, quick wit, and for always smiling. To remember him, we highly recommend a vodka martini with a lemon twist at 6 p.m. sharp, throw on a Frank Sinatra tune, and raise your hand in a toast to any loved ones around you, to words he often said, "I'm happy you are here". A celebration of Bob's life will be held at a later date.
