Born on Oct. 9, 1929, Mrs. Mason was the daughter of Half Moon Bay residents Aladino and Lena Matteucci. She grew up on the family ranch, where she helped with the animals raised at the ranch and with the vegetables grown there, particularly artichokes. She attended local schools and graduated from Half Moon Bay High School.

Mrs. Mason worked in Half Moon Bay for a while in the 1960s. She was married to her husband for 32 years.

"She was a wonderful wife, mother and grandmother," said Mrs. Mason's daughter,

Patricia Eklund of Half Moon Bay.

"She was nice. Easygoing," said Mrs. Mason's former son-in-law, Fred Mangrubang.

Mrs. Mason is preceded in death by her husband, Edward Mason Sr., and her children Dorothy, Edward and Richard. She is survived by her daughter, Patricia Eklund, of Half Moon Bay and grandchildren Rita (with husband Doug) Coggeshall of San Mateo, Jessica Mangrubang and Rachael Mangrubang of Half Moon Bay and Kevin, Kirsten and Kurt-Eric of Moraga.

She is also survived by a sister, Aladina Meyers, of Half Moon Bay.

Mrs. Mason's life was celebrated in a memorial Mass on Aug. 30 at Our Lady of the Pillar Catholic Church in Half Moon Bay.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations in Mrs. Mason's memory to Mission Hospice, 151 W. 20th Ave., San Mateo, CA 94403.

Melvis J. Conti

Melvis J. Conti of Livermore, the mother of Half Moon Bay resident Char Conti, died Aug. 24 in Livermore at age 81 due to natural causes.

Mrs. Conti was born Jan. 31, 1923 in Lake Wilson, Minn. When she was 18, wanting to live in the sunshine, she came to San Diego. She also lived in La Mesa for many years, and had lived for the past eight years in Livermore.

Mrs. Conti was a homemaker who was very active in the Girl Scouts when her daughters were young.

"Mel was always there for her family, and they will always hold a special place in their hearts for her," her family said in a statement.

Mrs. Conti is preceded in death by her grandson, Steven Reaume, who died in 1987, by her husband, Anthony J. Conti, who died in 1990 and by her brother, Bud Gunderson, who died this year.

She is survived by her son, Anthony Conti Jr. of Lakeside, her daughters Char Conti of Half Moon Bay, Cindy Reaume of Salt Lake City and Melani Havener of Pleasanton, 10 grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. She is also survived by a sister, Leone Amundson, of Chicago.

A memorial Mass will be celebrated for Mrs. Conti on Sept. 1 at 7 p.m. at St. Augustine Catholic Church in Pleasanton, followed by interment at the Riverside National Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Hope Hospice, 6500 Dublin Blvd., Suite 1200, Dublin, CA 94568.

David Vernon Cunha

David Vernon Cunha of Clovis, the son of Vernon Cunha of Half Moon Bay, died Aug. 19 at his home, at age 53 due to cancer.

Affectionately known by family, friends and associates as Dave or "Chief," he left a distinguished military record and a legacy of bonhomie.

"He was good-hearted," said his father. "Everyone liked him."

Mr. Cunha was born Oct. 3, 1950, and grew up in Half Moon Bay, graduating from Half Moon Bay High School around 1968. In December 1968 he enlisted in the Air Force, serving in active duty until December, 1972.

Over those four years, he served in Vietnam and earned the Vietnam Service Medal, the Republic of Vietnam Gallantry Cross Unit Citation and Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal.

After a short time in the civil-ian work sector, he returned to the Air Force and joined the

California Air National Guard, 144th Fighter Interceptor Group, with duty at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Arizona, which began in 1973. Soon thereafter he moved to Fresno and served at the Fresno Air National Guard Base.

Known as a rock for his leadership and reliable work in fighter aircraft maintenance, Mr. Cunha volunteered for federalization to fight the war on terrorism, proving to be a driving force behind rapid-fighter aircraft activation in response to the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

He was also instrumental in enabling the 144th Fighter Wing, California Air National Guard, Fresno, to take advantage of opportunities to provide defense of the country's western border.

When he took time to relax, Mr. Cunha spent hours at the lake with family, close friends and extended family. The owner of several boats, trucks and a fine selection of cowboy hats and boots, he was frequently known to sing any number of cowboy tunes and top them off with a two-step. He also knew every line from all of John Wayne's movies.

Mr. Cunha is preceded in death by his mother, Darlene, who died in June 2001. He is survived by his wife, Debra Cunha, son Michael (and wife Kim) Cunha, daughter Heather Cunha and son Zechary Cunha, all of Clovis, and his father, Vern Cunha of Half Moon Bay.

He is also survived by aunts, uncles, cousins, and special friends.

Services, held in August at the Rock Church in Fresno, were attended by 500 to 600 friends, relatives and military acquaintances.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests remembrances in memory of David V. Cunha to the Hinds Hospice, 1616 W. Shaw, Fresno, CA 93711.
