Community celebrates the life of John M. Futch, Jr.

John M. Futch, Jr. was born June 15, 1950 in Merced, California. He was the oldest of four children; born into an Air Force family with parents who lovingly instilled in him a sense of structure and a strong work ethic. John was a natural leader as the big brother in a traveling family. He kept the siblings unified as they traveled around the world – imparting in them an unbreakable alliance. Through all the transitions John, Terry, Lois and Stan relied on each other. They relied on the solid foundation of a loving family. And the kids relied on John’s innate leadership. John was always in charge. He was the oldest and carried the most responsibility. Mature. Articulate. Brilliant. Confident. These are words that described John at an early age. It was no shock that John finished high school at the age of 16 without sacrificing extra- curricular activities. He played football, wrestled and ran track. He was accomplished at a young age – willing to tackle any challenge. John exemplified a sense of fearlessness and strength that only grew as he did. John…

Robert Aramburo Rosales – Cursum Perficio (My journey has ended)

Robert’s new journey takes him to a wonderful place where he will be reunited with his parents, seven brothers and three sisters. A lifelong resident of Colton, Robert was father to Olivia Rosales Tierney (Gary), Robina Rosales, Robb Rosales and Dr. Lisa Rosales. He also leaves behind eight grandchildren ten great-grandchildren and former wife, Mary Rosales.  From 1939 to 1942, dad played shortstop for the Colton Mercuries baseball team. In 2016, the team was inducted into the Colton Sports Hall of Fame. The only shame ever brought to our LA Dodgers household, was dad being a New York Yankees fan.  Two additional achievements came in 2014. One, when dad received his Colton Union High School diploma and second, when his military banner was installed.  Leaving school in eighth grade, to help support his family, dad always regretted not completing his high school education. Throughout his life, he was never without a book. His love for history and languages made him a “know-it-all” on historical facts and events and a great conversationalist in Spanish, French, Arabic and Japanese.  Joining the army in 1942, dad was stationed…
