CT, as everyone called him, had a wonderful sense of humor and a zest for life. Dad joined the Merchant Marines at the age of 17 during World War II, which sparked his passion for both travel and history. As a world traveler he went on 36 cruises, and walked the steps of his beloved Savior, in Jerusalem, an event which lead him, and his bride Donna to be sealed in the San Diego Temple March 6, 2002. He started working in Real Estate at the young age of 20, and was named Salesperson of the Year in 1963. In 1971 he purchased the Pier Motel, his pride and joy in Oceanside, California. Family and friends would gather often to laugh, play a game of cards, body surf, or just take a walk along the beach. Dad told the best stories, and he did it in such a way that his expression and humor had you laughing until you cried. He never fully retired, but continued working with his long time partner Dee Worth Williams until the day he passed. His gentle, loving, positive spirit will be greatly missed until we see him again.
