Obituary Condolences

Rick Cantrell Rick Cantrell passed away peacefully on August 10, 2011. He was born September 16, 1949, in Exeter, California, and spent many of his younger years in Oregon, graduating from Sheldon High School and University of Oregon. Rick moved to Marin County in 1971, then traveled through Europe meeting his future wife, Terry, along the way. They returned to Switzerland to be married in 1978. Rick will be greatly missed by his family: wife Terry, son Morgan, brothers Charlie and Garlin, sister Sharon, mother Betty, father Ted and many other relatives. He was a carpenter and enjoyed his work immensely-especially working on challenging projects. His woodwork was featured in numerous publications and can be seen throughout the Bay Area from Napa to San Francisco. Wine tasting was one of his favorite hobbies and he shared his knowledge with enthusiasm. Another favorite pastime was barbecuing oysters at Drake's Beach. Rick was passionate about baseball, playing while growing up and then playing and coaching adult softball after moving to Marin. His baseball talents came in handy again during the several years he coached Morgan's teams. He was a devoted dad and Morgan was his pride and joy. The 49ers and Giants were his teams-he rejoiced in the years of Joe Montana and Steve Young and last year's World Champion Giants.
