Memorial for Michael Quesada

March 6, 2018 by Athena Quesada Huss (Register to contact)

My brother Michael Quesada was in the class of 1975. Michael passed away January 29, 1983. One of my favorite memories were taking our surfboards to Huntington Beach in the old Falcon Station Wagon and losing one on Beach Blvd. in front of Knott's Berry Farm. I remember riding on the back of his motorcycle and many years later got one of my own. Michael was a gentle soul and loved to be around people. Thank you for letting me share.
