Requiem in Pasce: Rosalyn Gast and Morteza Manian

Requiem in Pasce: Rosalyn Gast and Morteza Manian

October 1, 2006

Rosalyn Gast passed away August 25th in Littleton Colorado of a cardiac arrest heart attack.

A memorial is scheduled October 27th in Gustine California at the national cemetery where she and her husband William will rest. Should you require additional information please contact Teri Dickey in Fresno Ca.

September 12, 2006 marked the sixth-month anniversary of the tragic death of Mr. Manian. Mr. Manian was born on Dec,16h 1930 and passed away on March 12th 2005 in an Hit and Run car accident in front of his daughter's house. He was riding his bicycle as he has done many times in the past and was hit by a car whose driver was a 16 years old teenage girl. Unfortunately the impact was so severe that he did not survive from it.

Trial for the 16-year old has commenced, but because she is a minor, the Orange County District Attorney, by law, is barred from disclosing any information on the case. Ironic, since a seating member of the Coto de Caza board of directors has blamed the tragedy on Mr. Manian’s violation of the vehicle code.

Mr. Morteza Manian was an Electrical Engineer. A professional man who worked all his life and held high ranking positions in government and private sector, including the post of Vice Minister and Head of Operations for Department of Energy of his native country, Iran.

A very kind and gentle man. He was extremely patient and calm to deal with anything. He loved flowers and working in the yard. That was his hobby and used to spend hours everyday to do that. He was active and always liked to walk, ride bike... He was a wonderful husband, father and teacher to all! Very generous and always preached to his children:" the more you give, the more you get" or "whatever you want to be once you grow up, be the best at it". Loved his grandkids and used to spend so much time with them.

Mr. Manian was very generous and always helped others. His soul was full of dedication and love. He is remembered by all those he touched. Mr. Manian, may he rest in peace.

Saving Lives, Saving Money
For that minority in Coto de Caza who still think the community does not have traffic problems, all the need to do is stand some 30-60 minutes on any side street. Very quick, you will see teen drivers going over 60 MPH on 25 MPH zones!The bottom line is...
