Eric K. York, a longtime Napa resident (1955-2007), died on Feb. 28, 2013, at the Salt Lake City Veterans Nursing Home. He and his wife Joel moved to Utah in 2007 because of his failing health and their desire to live closer to their sons, Rick (in Moab, Utah) and Neil (in Sandy, Utah) and their families.

Eric was born in Rhode Island in 1925, raised in Massachusetts, and moved to California after serving as a Marine in the Pacific Theater during World War II. He worked as a draftsman at the Union Oil Refinery in Rodeo, Calif., until his retirement.

Eric loved the entire Bay Area, especially Napa, which, in his heart, was still home even after he left. Funeral services will be held on March 7, 2013, and he will be interred in the mausoleum of the Wasatch Lawn Cemetery.

    Sorry to hear that Brother York has passed away. I will always be grateful for his service in the Boy Scouts when we met at the Church on the Hill in Napa. As a young scout Brother York and Brother Jensen provided me with a wonderful guide for my life. I remember Brother York helping us see the value of being a good citizen and proud of our country. He went on many camp-outs with us and I am grateful for his service to the Scouts and his country. Some of his scouts were the Wagners, Picketts, Honvick, brothers and many more. My thoughts are with you and your family.
    Sincerely, Paul Wagner~ Son of Roy and Mignon Wagner of Napa

Safety, recreation collide at airport

Safety, recreation collide at airport

Barry Christian stood on the new levee trail south of Napa one day recently and enjoyed the expansive views. Distant mountains, adjacent tidal wetlands and the Brazos railroad drawbridge crossing the Napa River are part of the scenery.
