Gabany, Vincent Rodger - Ramona  
Vincent Rodger Rodger' Gabany January 23, 1964 - April 28, 2016 Ramona For 52 years, Rodger, as he was known to friends and family, brought joy, laughter, love, an endless outlook on the world and positive vibes. He grew up and resided in Ramona, Calif. There, he raised two daughters, Sarah and April with the help of his late father, Vincent and his dearest brother Chad. Rodger had a passion for working with his hands and utilized his passion as a full time job working as a handyman. He loved to help the ones he loved and enjoyed being surrounded by people. Rodger also deeply loved music. He had an ear for great tunes and a heart to understand any lyric. He was always the life of the party and could make anyone laugh. These past days have not been entirely sad. They are a combination of emotions that can never be defined. His passing is a bittersweet glimmer of beauty and the family would like to create a tribute of his death in an inspiring way. Rodger was a dreamer. He could take the smallest thought and turn it into something so much greater than life itself. He dreamt much of the future and at times missed out on the present. Which reminds us to stay present and stop worrying so much about what will happen tomorrow. Live life to its fullest, as cliche as it may sound, things will always work themselves out. In the coming months, Rodgers' life will be celebrated. His family will honor his wishes with the spreading of his ashes and he will take one last road trip to Zion National Park, Utah.

Hargarten, Jerome - Poway  
Jerome Jerry' Hargarten February 2, 1926 - May 11, 2016 Poway Jerome (Jerry) Hargarten was born on February 2, 1926, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Following the death of his mother two years later, Jerry was raised by his maternal grandmother and his mother's three sisters. Growing up during the depression, Jerry spent his summers on his uncle's farm in a small town in Wisconsin. With only horse and human power available on this poor farm, Jerry learned about work the hard way a lesson that served him well in later life. Soon after entering Cornell University on a scholarship at age 17, he entered the Navy. After WWII he returned to Cornell, working summers as a taxi driver, a foundry worker and in several of Milwaukee's famous breweries. Immediately after graduating as a chemical engineer in 1950, he joined the DuPont Company. Jerry retired from DuPont after a 34-year career which included postings in Niagara Falls, Detroit and Wilmington, Delaware. After assignments in marketing, research and manufacturing, he assumed responsibility for direction of several divisions worldwide.Jerry and his wife, Virginia, retired to Southern California in 1984 and moved into their new home in Poway in 1986. His lengthy involvement in Poway civic affairs began in 1988 when he led a successful political campaign to pass a precedent-setting ballot measure which has served to protect Poway against excessive and unplanned growth. Since then, Jerry continued to be active in Poway civic activities, having served twice as chairman of its Budget Committee and as a long-time officer and past president of Green Valley Civic Association. He spearheaded several successful campaigns to stop a number of undesirable commercial developments in Poway, including a huge outdoor amphitheater and an asphalt plant.In 1996, he became chairman of MARCH, a grass-roots non-profit public benefit corporation organized to have relocated Marine Corps helicopter squadrons moved to March Air Force Base instead of Miramar Air Station. The campaign gained broad-based support by elected officials at the federal, state and local levels and forced the decision to the White House. Although President Clinton authorized moving the helicopters to Miramar, the Marine Corps ultimately responded to the community's concerns by adopting operations practices which reduced the noise and safety impacts to acceptable levels.In 2010, Jerry and Virginia moved to Casa de las Campanas, a lovely retirement community in Rancho Bernardo where they continued an active life by participating in resident committees and a stimulating social life.Jerry's other interests included sailplane piloting, tennis, painting, collecting jazz recordings, politics and bridge.Jerry is survived by his loving wife of 37 years, Virginia; sons, Michael, Timothy and David; stepdaughters, Lee Gregory and Karen Hogan; and grandchildren, Paul Hargarten and Lauren Hargarten.
