Ray was well known for his chalk and eraser tossing at students not paying attention or "clowning" around, and his pin-point accuracy is for- ever documented. The long list of students who were inspired by him and eventually later would pay their respects to him was al- ways a testament and tribute for the many years of dedica- tion to the field of education. Ray was especially fond of teaching and to those who strived to better themselves through studying. Always reading and always in awe of just about everything per- taining to history and sci- ence, Ray was ardent student of life himself. He loved gazing at the mountains, streams and wildlife seen every day in the Portola area. His interests in- cluded local Portola history, especially the early railroads, geology and prehistory of the region, in addition to hunting and fishing. Ray was a certified hunter safety instructor during the 60s and 70s, as well as a mem- ber of the Plumas County Boat Patrol at Lake Davis. Ray retired from teaching in 1981, and spent the rest of his retirement enjoying and sharing times with his family and friends in Portola.

Mervyn Carlton Hansen Jr. Longtime Quincy resident and businessman Mervyn Carlton Hansen, Jr. passed from this life peaceful- ly, early Monday, under the compassionate care of Plumas District Hospital located in Quincy. He was 79 years old. A native Californian, Mervyn was born in Liver- more July 9, 1930, to the late Mervyn Sr. and Edna (Topance) Hansen. As a young teen he and his family relocat- ed to Nevada City where he graduated from Nevada Union High School as a mem- ber of the "class of 1948." While drag racing the streets of Nevada City and .running from the local police, he took refuge in a local coffee shop. Here he caught the eye of a pretty young waitress who informed the police he had been there for quite some time and it could not be him terrorizing the streets. This encounter led to the couple's marriage in Reno, Nev. July 28, 1956. To this loving union one son and two daughters were born. Following his graduation Mervyn worked a number of jobs before moving to Incline Village, Nev., where he was employed as the burning and clearing foreman for Crystal Bay Development. He also worked in the movie industry on the set of "Bonanza" and the movie The "Rainmaker." In 1970, he and his wife pur- chased V and M Travertine Quarry outside of Quincy, which they operated until 1983. He then went to work as a "Jippo" log truck operator driving "O1 Blue" until 10 years ago. He went to work for Wilburn Construction and for 10 years tried to retire many times, only to discover that he couldn't give up truckin'. He was finally able to retire four years ago. First and foremost, Mervyn was passionate about his fam- ily. He took great pride in sharing their accomplish- ments with all who would lis- ten. He will be fondly remem- bered for his distinctive wave. Mervyn had a great love for the outdoors, hunting, fish- ing, camping while also enjoy- ing traveling especially to the Native American Bear Dances. In passing Mervyn leaves his loving wife of nearly 54 years Vivian of Quincy' sons Dean Hansen of Magalia; daughters Tonic Sherman and husband Mike of Quincy, Dana Galloway and husband Ken of Greenhorn Ranch, a sister; Alice Hoskins of Mon- tague, as well as being the proud grandfather of Stephanie, Cannon, Chalise, Haley, Chyanne, Jasmin, Cheyla, Autum and Ruby. He will also be dearly missed by his favorite sister- in-law, Norene Wilson, and Matlery & Maltery Attorneys at Law PROBATE TRUST ADMINISTRATION ESTATE PLANNING 257-4300 75 S. Gay Street .
