Cheri loved the desert and enjoyed camping so her new home was a perfect fit. She was an avid reader and enjoyed knitting. She was married to Doug McClain, and had 2 boys and 2 grandchildren.

Unfortunately, Cheri did not get to enjoy her new home for long. She was diagnosed with cancer in the fall of 1996 and passed away in September of 1997.

Donald R Conner
Class of 1965
Passed Jun 10, 2013
Donald Ray Conner, born November 8, 1947, "shuffled off this mortal coil" June 10, 2013 leaving behind his sister, Marcia (Conner) Russell, his brother-in-law, Wally Russell, many Clover and Conner cousins and numerous friends. He was preceded in death by his parents, Elmer D. and Jessie M. Conner. His C.K. McClatchy High School (June 1965) classmates will remember Don as one of the organizers of past class reunions.

Don was a native Sacramentan whose book business, Don Conner Fine Books, gained him recognition, friends and customers worldwide. As a respected, proud member of Antiquarian Booksellers' Association of America, Don shared his love of books and vast knowledge generously with all who knew him. His specialty was natural history, but he could easily quote Mark Twain just as well as he could chat about fishing and birds. He will be remembered for his extensive knowledge, caring spirit and loving nature.

As cancer took its toll on his body Don's friends and family were by his side. To hear Don's own words about his life and his passion for books an interview is available at http://hq.abaa.org/books/antiquarian/abaapages/conner. No services are planned at this time. Remembrances in Don's name may be made to the ABAA Benevolent Fund, 20 West 44th St. Ste 507, NY, NY 10036, whose generosity touched him deeply or to the charity of your choice.

James Russell Carrier
James Russell Carrier
Class of 1969
Passed Jun 10, 2018
James Russell Carrier, age 66, passed away at home on Sunday, June 10th. He was not a person who complained about his health so his passing was sudden and unexpected. Born August 27, 1951 in Sacramento, James is survived by both parents, Craig and Tina Carrier and two sisters, Marjorie Guter and Katherine Malson. He was a loving uncle to two nephews, Scott and Eric Guter, whom he used to babysit. Eric was with James when he passed. Known as Jimmy by family and James or Jim by his many friends, he will be missed by everyone who ever met him. His lively humor and love of life was memorable and uplifting. A graduate of C.K. McClatchy high school in 1969, Jimmy spent his entire life in Sacramento working when needed painting houses and for 19 years as a shuttle bus driver for the airport parking. His passengers always remembered James because of his amusing comments and commands to write down the parking slot number! He was the cool dude with the long hair, mustache and beard and always wearing his shades. He was also a very talented artist painting amusing caricatures and cartoons. But his greatest love was music. A perfect day for Jimmy was spent with a beer in his hand listening to great rock and roll. Everyone liked James and those who didn’t know him wanted to. He was generous to a fault. James was the guy who would literally give you the shirt off his back. He left with very few possessions after a simple life but he left us and the world with a giant hole where he used to be. We will be celebrating his life at a later time and place to be determined. For now we grieve. For information please check James Russell Carrier’s new facebook page.
