John passed away from a heart attack. He attended Carver, Horace Mann and Crawford. We worked together in the San Diego shipyards and would spend our two-week Christmas shutdown fishing for steelhead trout in the Pacific Northwest. Tired of the city life, John left San Diego in 1993 and made Chewela, Washington his home, to be closer to his sons, Jon and Christopher. Fishing and hunting became his new 9-5 routine. He was the last survivor of the Davey family on Bark street. His parents, older brother Homer his older sister Kay and younger sister Cheryl all preceded him in death. We were close friends for 50 years -- Harvey Noble
My beautiful wonderful sister. As all who knew and loved her, she was an angel for homeless cats. She helped everyone that she could. She told everyone she met, Please spay or neuter your pet. She helped people whenever they were in need. Everyone who knew her knew we were extremely close. She was an excellent violinist for the San Diego Community Orchestra and worked for the Black Angus Restaurant for over 20 years. Valerie was an angel here on earth and she will be an angel in Heaven. My sister my friend, I love you so. We all love you. Earth will not be the same.

Genise passed away at home due to complications of diabetes. She was under the loving care of her family: attentive husband Karl Dutcher, loving daughters Teresa and Christina, younger brother Chuck, older brother George, nephew Chuck, niece Debbie, and dear friend Barbara. Genise came to San Diego as an infant and went to Carver, Horace Mann and Crawford High; a California girl, she loved the beach, camping, playing slots, being with her family.
Up until her last days she went to the beach, visited family, and even cooked mostaciolli! She didn't want to leave us, but "was ready to go with God." She's watching over us, and we'll forever feel her presence.

My youngest brother died of a heart attack. He was a very private person and none of us -- including my sister in law, knew he had a heart problem. He is survived by his wife Carol, daughter Amanda, father Martin Swede, brother Earle Swede and myself. He lived in San Diego until just six months before his death, when he and his family moved to Los Osos near San Luis Obispo. So many of us spend our days too busy to spend time with those we love or too proud to say how much we love them. My brother is gone now and I'll never have the chance to tell him how much he was loved or how much he'll be missed. But, somehow I know he knows -- Frances Swede Zamir '62
