After a long battle with Lewy Body Dementia, Mike Damigo passed away on Thursday, January 9, 2020. His wife, Charilyn is involved in the Knights Ferry Church, Knights Ferry Community Club, and has been a substitute at Knights Ferry School. Though they are what we might call a ‘transplant’ local, they have worked hard to support our community. Mike is a Marie Corps Veteran and retired after 25 years with Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office. Mike’s memorial service will be on February 22 at the Senior Center in Oakdale with a reception to follow. Contributions in Mike’s honor may be sent to the Wine Country Marines.
Happy birthday to everyone with a birthday in January: Heather Wright, Sean McCarthy, Barbara Burroughs, Alexis Arias, Logan Martinelli, Kaeli Sweet, Madison Page, Rick Feichter, Joe Murray, Larry Bell, Sam Page, Matthew Boyer, Ben Cassinetto, Heather Voortman, Carson Sundberg, Malia Olivo, Jett Thompson, Jak Gardner, Hadley Gardner, Jessica Martinez, Naya Morua, Nathaly Ramirez, Josh Patton, Ruth Basmajian, and Rose Basmajian!
