Ernest D. Reiswig
Nov 15, 1930 - June 1, 2017
Ernest D Reiswig finished his journey here in this world and went to heaven on June 1, 2017. Ernest was loved by family and friends and will be dearly missed.
Ernest was born in Canada and moved to Lodi, CA when he was 5 years old. At a very young age, he joined the Merchant Marine to serve during World War II. Upon leaving that duty he enlisted in the US Navy where he served in the Korean War. He loved being an American and proudly wore his Korean Veteran baseball cap everyday. All that knew him could see that he was honored to share his "war stories".
Ernest met the love of his life while working at Purple Heart and willingly took on the responsibility of co-raising teenage children, quite a feat.
During Ernest's later years, his face would light up when his grandchildren and great grandchildren were around. They called him "Papa Turkey" and knew they would be constantly entertained by his stories and shenanigans. He embedded the phrase "piece of cake" and "no problem" in their minds when he would offer to help them in their endeavors.
Ernest is survived by his wife, Digna Reiswig of CA; 4 step children and their 2 spouses: Cyndi Jackson, Mary Fickert with her husband Kevin Fickert, David Cierley with his wife Elvia Cierley, and Patty Cierley, all residing in CA and AZ; 9 grand children and 9 great grandchildren. He was pre-deceased by his step son Richard Cierley.
Family and friends will be notified of a service to held at Miramar National Cemetery at a later date.
We love you Ernie and we praise God that you are celebrating in heaven and no longer in pain.
Joseph K. Scheiblauer
Joseph K. Scheiblauer slipped peacefully away from this earth and started his next great journey on Friday, March 3, 2017. As he requested, he died in the home he loved in San Diego, CA, knowing he was loved. He was 70 years old.
The son of Joseph E. and Martha Scheiblauer, Joe was born in Miles City, MT in August 1946. After younger brother Steve joined them in 1949, the family relocated to Southern California where the two brothers spent many happy years playing in the surf and sand in Seal Beach and Naples.
Joe learned a love of the outdoors at an early age while camping and fishing with his parents and later went on many backpacking and hiking expeditions with friends. He was especially drawn to the Sequoia and Eastern Sierra mountain ranges, and even survived being stranded in a blizzard for 3 days while exploring Idyllwild Mountain.
As a young adult, Joe had a lust for adventure, and joined the Merchant Marine to see the world. After a number of years, he settled down with his then-partner, Keryl, moving to Las Cruces, NM, then Santa Cruz, Palm Springs and San Diego, CA where they opened various small businesses. Eventually wanderlust took hold again, and they started traveling the world while importing ethnic treasures. Joe loved the many countries he visited in his lifetime, including Afghanistan, India, Iran, Morocco, Malaysia, Mexico, Turkey, and Vietnam, to name a few. After Keryl passed away in 1998, his adventures took another direction.
In 2000, Joe opened up a corporate limousine service, Zephyr Transportation, in San Diego, CA. In the same year, he met his future life partner, Marla. At the end of 2008, Joe accepted a position at The Argen Corporation in the Jewelry Division, providing assistance and transportation to the owner and his family, and thoroughly enjoyed his time there.
Over the past 17 years, Joe and Marla shared their love of the outdoors and “adventure rides” throughout California, Arizona, Maine, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington’s San Juan Islands, Washington DC and Wyoming. At the end of 2015, they cruised through the Panama Canal—one of Joe’s favorite experiences as a Merchant Marine that he wanted to share with Marla. Ports along the way included Mexico, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Aruba and Curacao.
In April 2016, Joe was diagnosed with a deadly form of brain tumor: Glioblastoma Multiforme Grade IV Astrocytoma (GBM). Over the next eleven months and many treatments, Joe never complained of any pain and was positive that he would "lick this thing". No matter how sick he got, he remained good-natured and kind, and he always knew when friends or family came to visit. He could not have made this journey without their love and support!
He is survived by his beloved mother, Martha; incredibly faithful brother Steve; sister-in-law Kim; four wonderful nephews, Nick, Jeremy, Kris, Ethan, their wives and children, and his life partner, Marla. He was pre-deceased by his father, Joseph E.
Joe's physical remains will be cremated, although his spirit will always be with those who love him. We hold firmly to the belief that "the best is yet to come" for Joe. Family and friends will be notified of any memorial plans at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations would be welcome in his memory at www.abta.org / ways to donate / tribute donation for Joseph K. Scheiblauer.
