David Hernandez Celebration of Life 1-4pm Descanso Town Hall

March 29, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

It is with a profound sadness that CRSPIA share the news of Dave Hernandez’s passing. Dave was involved in many volunteer activities that involved giving to the Park system, CRSPIA, communities, friends and family. Here in Cuyamaca Rancho State Park, he was our Treasurer, past president, Historian of our Park and trails, and the Trail Maintenance Unit where he provided safety training for our trail equipment. We appreciate Dave’s commitment and support he gave to Cuyamaca Rancho State Park and California State Parks Foundation Park Champion Program. Dave was also served on the CALPA, and San Diego River Park Foundation boards. He volunteered at the Earth Discovery Institute and the San Diego Wildlife Refuge Complex. Dave was also one of the founders of SoCal Park Alliance.

A “Celebration of Life” will be held March 29th from 1-4 pm at the Descanso Town Hall. Address for the hall is: 24536 Viejas Grade Road, Descanso, CA 91916. The phone at the Hall is 619-445-9505. If you are able to help set up or tear down please let me know. The approximate set up time will be at 12 noon.

If you have any pictures of Dave, it would be appreciated if you could send them to be a part of a video or to be displayed at the town hall. Pictures may be sent to our secretary, Susan Russo: secretary@CRSPIA.org .

In lieu of flowers, CRSPIA will accept donations in Dave’s name , and a “Go Fund Me” page for donations has also been set up for Dave.

But most of all, I hope that we who appreciated and adored this man, would fulfill a wish he always made: “I would love to see the membership of CRSPIA grow, and that people who are passionate about our park join the board so that we can be the strongest supporter of any State Park in the system.”

See you in the park!

Kandhy Franklin, president of CRSPIA
