"Slick" as he was known by many of his friends, worked for the phone company most of his life, after having served in the Korean War. Slick spent his off time enjoying fishing, boating and house boating with his many friends and family members. He was an avid sports enthusiast, rarely missing a Giants game.

Visitation will be held from 4:00 - 8:00 pm on Tuesday, July 15th. A service to honor CJ's life will be held on Wednesday, July 16th at 11:00 am. Both will be at Lakewood Funeral Home, 900 Santa Fe Avenue Hughson, CA 95326.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that contributions may be made to Hines Hospice at 410 West Main Street, Suite A, Merced, CA.
