Edna May Lewis. The vast difference in his parents' background helped create a unique boy from the very beginning. At an early age, Dan and his parents moved to rural Newton, New Jersey to be close to Edna's family. There he was educated at local schools and his brother Jack and sister Kathy were born.His mother died when Dan was a young boy and that forever impacted his life. Edna was an avid reader and she certainly passed that on to her son. Dan's house today is filled with books and it is our guess that every one of them was read. He had a passion for history, with World War II being the subject that he extensively perused.Dan enlisted in the U.S. Army and served as a Crew Chief on a Chinook helicopter during the Vietnam Conflict. He was honorably discharged in 1971, and at that time he moved to San Francisco where he lived in a commune in the Haight Ashbury District. In 1975, he took advantage of the GI Bill and moved to Bozeman, Montana, where he pursued his love of architecture at Montana State University. He never completed that degree but instead went on to learn the trade of carpentry and house painting. His love for color and the Painted Ladies of San Francisco are reflected in the painting patterns of the historic homes of Butte. He boldly envisioned and began painting these historic homes to show off their beautiful architecture and design. His home today, which he designed and bu

Flores Raudales and her sister Elizabeth and brother Eduardo.Many students asked the high school’s administrators if a memorial would be planned for the two young women. Washburn said it could happen sometime after spring break next week.“We want any sort of memorial or recognition to be theirs,” the principal said. “We want it to be something they come up with, something they organize and something they lead.
