Owen was a great neighbor for many years on Kershawn Place and also had a beautiful golf swing! One of the good guys. Youll be missed by many. Pat and Skip Wilber

I worked with Owen for 12 years in the Encinitas Union School District. Owen was always smiling, a compassionate colleague, and a knowledgeable educator who had a love for his students and staff. He was fun to work with and I'm sure there will be many, many people who will miss that smile and his kind words. My sympathy goes out to his family. I will always remember Owen fondly.
