Not sure what to say?

"Mikado" at the CYC, troop train to Ft. Lewis, summers at Maple Lake, meeting the St. Kate's girls at the end of Summit Ave, Saturday night dances, the "Cerfs", reunion at Franciscan center at Malibu, Sebastian Temple introducing his sung Prayer of St Francis, catching up in Ventura on trips between Sydney and Minnesota - all lovely memories, even nursing home visits. A life well lived, Dan and Therese. RIP Jim Liesch

Dear Mark and family,
You will be in our thoughts and prayers as you mourn the loss of your father. We are never ready for this time.
What a wonderful legacy he
has left. He was truly an amazing man.
I never had the privilege of meeting him but I do know that he passed on many of his wonderful character traits to you and all of the family.
Randy and Pattie Lamberson

Terese, Tom, Dave, Marianne, Cathy and all of the Dufresne's: My profound condolences to you on the passing of your husband and father.

He is and was a man of faith, honor and integrity, and he helped create an amazing legacy which remains your family!

My family and I will remember he, and you, in our masses and prayers.

May he rest in peace!

Tom Hicks (and family)


Grandpa, you led a full life here on Earth, devoted to your family and friends. I know you're at peace now and all your questions are answered. I'll see you again one day. Love Nate, Ashley, Mikael, and Lucas.

God bless Dan and keep him in His care. The Liesch family sends hugs and love to you all with our deepest sympathy. I remember your dad as a big jolly man who made my dad smile and the warmth they generated touched us all. A fun picnic comes to mind in the Santa Monica mountains - we came in a big station wagon from the ocean side, the Dufresne's from the Ventura side in another big car. Together we had enough kids to start a scout troop or cricket team or whatever. That was in the 1960's...

Terry, Mark and whole family,
Steve and I always admired Dan as a wonderful example of what a husband, father, friend and man of God should be. Take pleasure in knowing he is with God this Christmas...
Roxann and Steve Tobias. Ventura, CA

Greg, I'm truly very sorry to hear about your dad. He always had a smile and something nice to say. He was a good man.

Terry and Family:
Our hearts go out to you on Dan's passing. Our late parents, John and Lucy, were honored to be your friends for so many years. May you be comforted by the support and affection of your family and friends. God bess you.
