That is horrible. May he rest in peace, and may his home be sold for a good deal. http://bethesdahomesforsale.com

I lived in Montebello for a time, and it's a beautiful part of California. So many great homes for sale out there. It's a shame to see someone from that area pass away. http://edwardsvillemls.com

I wonder if this is the same guy who grew up in my neighborhood and went to school with me? He has the same name and we grew up in Rosemead, California which is next door to Montebello. I remember him moving right around that time. Does anyone know if this is the same guy. He had a older brother named Gary and a smaller brother but do not remember the name. Thank you.

The link in the story is broken.
Does anyone have a copy?
I live in neighboring South San Gabriel.
We all share the loss.
One of my Eagle Scouts, Tommy Thomas, is on Montebello's plaque- Vietnam RIP

By my memory, it wasn't a very long story. This was all the part that pertained to Montebello, so that was all I posted. Perhaps the family has the whole thing? Also, what about google cache? I don't remember how to use it, but it keeps things a long time.
