Born to Mexican immi- grants Antonio and Brigetta Hernandez Leal in San Ysidro, May 1, 1930, he was the first of the family born in the United States. Gilbert was raised and educated in San Ysidro graduating from Chula Vista High School as a member of the class of 1950. Gilbert joined the U.S. Air Force out of high school, where his talent as a trum- peter was put to use playing "Taps" at the funerals of fel- low soldiers lost in Korea. Upon discharge, he went to work in the hotel industry as a bellhop and just a day be- fore his GI :Bill benefits were to run out made the decision to return to school. He en- rolled at San Diego State where he obtained his degree in history with a minor in Spanish. With a provisional teach- ing credential in hand, he moved north to begin a long and fulfilling teaching ca- reer. While teaching sixth grade at Benecia Unified School District, just out of college, he met a beautiful young teacher who he imme- diately fell in love with, Sophia Kallis. The couple was united in matrimony during a High Mass at St. Basairs Catholic Church in Vallejo, a ceremo- ny later blessed by the Pope May 7, 1966. To this holy union one daughter and three sons were born. Gilbert continued his teaching career in the Vallejo schools of Franklin and Solano and was later hand- picked to be part of the staff that opened Vallejo Junior High School. Following his retirement Gilbert continued to serve as a longterm substitute for 15 more years. As a young man, Gilbert became an avid outdoorsman both out of the love of the outdoors and the need to pro- vide for his family hunting and fishing for food. He found great solace in his time in the outdoors, traveling throughout the West and es- pecially enjoyed passing this love on to his sons and grand- sons. His passion for music be- gan when his brother paid for trumpet lessons while he was a young man and contin- ued throughout his life. It is said he could name and play all the hits of the 1940s. Gilbert again found pride in passing this passion on to his family. Gilbert was a devout mem- ber of the Roman Catholic faith and was, along with his late wife, were stalwarts in St. Anthony's Catholic Church in Greenville. He was a Third Degree Knight with the St. Basil's Knights of Columbus Chap- ter in Vallejo, as well as a member of Ducks Unlimited and the NRA. First and foremost, Gilbert was a loving family man who took great pride in all they have accomplished. He devel- oped a great relationship with his grandchildren in his later years and was always proud of his extended family of nieces and nephews. In passing Gilbert leaves his daughter, Maria and her husband, Scan, of Greenville; son Christopher and his wife. Debbie, of Greenville; James and his wife, Gabrielle, of Lake View, Ore. and John and his wife, Melissa, of Cresswell, Ore.; his precious grandchildren, Ashley, Megan and Sam Johnson, Gabriel, Sylvia, Helena, Rachel, John, Dominic and Bridgette Leal; a brother, An- tonio Leal, of Eureka and sis- ter Catalina Valasquez of Pol- way, along with his much- loved nieces and nephews.

Ambulance service not disrupted in Lassen An incident involving a Care Flight helicopter did not disrupt air ambulance service in Lassen County. Sunday, Jan. 17, the copter made what is being called a hard landing on the top of Renown Medical Center's rooftop. According to Ian Gregor, communications manager of the FAA Western-Pacific Re- gion, an Aerospatiale AS350 helicopter operated by Air Methods was departing from Renown Regional Medical Center when the pilot made an emergency autorotation. An autorotation is a proce- dure in which a pilot brings a helicopter down to the ground when the aircraft loses engine power. Upon impact, the helicopter spun 180 degrees on the helipad. There was substantial dam- age to the helicopter, and a flight nurse received some in- juries but there was no report on how serious those injuries were. There were no patients on board the helicopter. The FAA's RenD Flight Standards District Office is investigating the incident. According to Chip Jackson, chief of Lassen County Emer- gency Services, Care Flight does have another helicopter that can service the county, if necessary, but the helicopter will not go up if the weather is Obituary Policy Feather Publishing offers free Death Notices or Paid Obituaries.

Mountain LifeFlight re- leased the following state- ment, "Mountain LifeFlight is relieved there were no fatali- ties in Care Flight's helicopter crash on Jan. 17, and we send thoughts and prayers for the injured flight nurse. Care Flight has been very helpful with temporary helicopter coverage for Lassen County while Mountain LifeFlight has been unavailable for heli- copter response and was im- mediately ready to assist us in our time of tragedy. "Care Flight and Mountain LifeFlight have a long-stand- ing relationship to work to- gether to provide mutual aid response in both of our cover- age areas. We look forward to continuing to work together in the months and years to come. "Mountain LifeFlight hopes to minimize the time Lassen County is without a heli- copter air ambulance respon- der and is on target to be fully operational with helicopter service at the end of January. Mountain LifeFlight continues to be available with the fixed-wing airplane to pro- vide emergency and inter-fa- cility transports from the Su- sanville Municipal Airport." Mountain LifeFlight will soon return to full operational service. Mountain LifeFlight's newest aircraft, an AStar 350 B3 helicopter, has arrived in Susanville and is expected to be placed into service at the end of January. The new he!~opter joins the Mountain Life. fflight, fleet that currently prowdes med- ical transport to Lassen Coun- ty with its fixed wing air- plane. Mountain LifeFlight's new helicopter is the latest model, with the same type of rotor used by the California Highway Patrol. With its increased speed and range, and based at Su- sanville Municipal Airport, the helicopter will provide Lassen County with faster re- sponse and transfer times. nument ~me~,s 2eau[~/or 9eneraIions established 1929 MONUMENTS BENCHES SIGNS BORDERS ADDRESS STONES GRANITE * MARBLE NATURAL STONE 1 10 PACIFIC ST.
