Jeremy Paul Egnatios


October 8, 1988 – June 22, 2015

Jeremy was our beloved, beautiful, and brilliant son, brother, grandchild, nephew and friend, who was taken from us way too soon. He was like a shooting star that lights up the night with its bright light, streaks across the sky and then is gone, leaving only the memory of its beauty.

Jeremy wanted to be a doctor from the time he was a little boy. He wanted to change the world by doing as much good as he could, and by motivating others to do the same. Jeremy was passionate about so many causes: the poor, the underserved, the homeless, the abused, and of course the sick.

He accomplished an amazing amount in his short life. In his 3 years at UCSD Jeremy worked at 12 different free clinics, organized multiple community events and community interventions, he worked on 19 research projects, had 7 publications with 4 more in progress, Jeremy did 11 presentations, and won numerous awards, and was just recently inducted into the Class of 2016 Gold Humanism Honor Society. He worked harder and faster than anyone, possibly because he knew his time on this earth would be short, and he wanted to accomplish as much as he could while he was here.

We are heartbroken from our loss. We love you so much Jeremy, and our lives will never be the same without you. You were an amazing human being, and would have been an amazing doctor.

Vivian Jeanne Brown


December 19, 1932 – June 12, 2015

December 19, 1932, heralded a new day with the arrival of a new baby daughter, Vivian Jeanne, to William and Majoria Allsbery Allen in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She was their first child and the first grandchild of her maternal parents.

At an early age, her family relocated from Pittsburgh to Philadelphia where Vivian enjoyed a childhood of love and nurturing. There, also at the age of twelve, Vivian came to learn of the saving knowledge of our Lord, Jesus Christ and was baptized into the fellowship of the Shiloh Baptist Church by the Late Pastor Dr. W.H.R. Powell at the Lombard Street site and was a faithful member until her marriage took her to San Diego, California.

Vivian spent her formative years in Philadelphia attending the public schools of the city. Upon graduation from the Philadelphia High School for Girls, she attended Virginia State College where she received a Bachelor of Science Degree in education and some years later a Master’s Degree from San Diego State University, and an Administrative Credential from Point Loma Nazarene College.

Vivian’s marriage blessed her with a beautiful daughter, Phyllis Jeanne. Phyllis departed this world for a better life at the young age of nine. Her short life on earth was a inspiration to all who knew and loved her and she was Vivian’s precious Angel.

Vivian was affectionately known as “Viv” or “Auntie Viv.” Vivian was highly regarded for her work in education. She loved children and encouraged them to reach their greatest potential. Her commitment to being an advocate for all children kept her actively involved for forty-two (42) years in education. Her professional career began as a classroom teacher in Philadelphia, Cleveland, and Hartford. She enjoyed numerous positions in the San Diego City School System and retired as the Principal of Mead Math/Science Magnet Elementary School. Vivian was very proud of her varied accomplishments in her chosen career. She especially cherishes the Educator Achievement Award she received from the Committee for Education of African American children for exemplary service to African American students of San Diego. She was also honored as a Woman of Distinction by Women Incorporated.

Throughout her life, her church has become a source of strength as well as a recipient of her services and talent. She reached the level of elder at Christ United Presbyterian Church where she was a member for twenty-seven (27) years. In May of 1989, she joined Christian Fellowship Congregational Church, United Church of Christ where she served as a Deaconess, Church Moderator, Trustee, and member of the Personnel Committee of the Southern Conference of U.C.C. where she worked diligently and faithfully. She also served as a member of the Community Outreach Foundation.

Vivian contributed to her community through affiliation with Las Muñecas Auxiliary to the Children’s Home Society for twenty-six (26) years – a group which promoted the adoption of African American Children; she was also a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Incorporated; a Board Member of the African American Museum of Fine Arts; a board member of NAACP and President of the National Collation of 100 Black Women, San Diego Chapter.

Vivian enjoyed traveling with her lifelong girlfriends from Philadelphia on cruises to Alaska, St. Croix, the Bahamas, US Virgin Islands and two visits to Africa. She was a kind spirited, very giving person who will be in our memories and truly missed. Vivian loved her family, her church, her friends, good books, pretty clothes, and music. She also enjoyed genealogy and especially searching her roots in Lebanon, Tennessee.

Vivian was a devoted Christian friend exerting a positive influence upon all who came to know her and to love her. She possessed an indomitable spirit and dedication to those persons and principles in which she befriended and believed. She will be missed by many special friends. Above all, Vivian loved God and we are happy she is with him now.

Vivian was called from labor to reward on Friday, June 12, 2015. She
now joins her parents and daughter. Vivian is survived by her brother
William Allen, Jr. (Philadelphia, PA); stepson Butch Brown (San Diego) and
granddaughter Bianka Brown (San Diego). Vivian is also survived by her
Godchildren: Bryanna Olds (San Diego), Chandra Reid (San Diego), Shannon
Lewis (San Diego), Stephen Walls (Philadelphia) and Steven Olds (Watervilet, New York).

Jeane Ann Bizzle


June 3, 1931 – June 11, 2015

Jean Ann Bizzle was born on June 3, 1931 to Mr. and Mrs. Earl Green. She was their only child and a blessing to their union. She attended public schools and lived a fulfilling childhood.

Jean enjoyed worshipping at Grace Temple in Tucson, Arizona. She also had a great love for music overall – – – R&B, Jazz, Classical, and Country. She loved to attending live musical events when the opportunity presented itself.

Jean was a loving no non-sense mother to Jacquline, Reginald, Darryl  and Donnella. She devoted her life to raising them to be God – fearing, respectful productive citizens of society and she succeeded.

Throughout the years Jean lived and worked in various places. A couple places that stood out were her residence in Portland, Oregon where she worked for the mental health department and her residence in Oakland, CA where she was employed with the Oakland Police Department.

However, her journey did not end in those places, over time she lived in Riverside, California; San Francisco, California; San Diego, California; Boise, Idaho; and lastly, Tucson, Arizona.

On June 11, 2015 God called his angel from labor to reward.  Jean lived a full life and as time progressed her health began to deteriorate. She didn’t complain, but those who knew her knew that it was not the  quality of life she wanted to have.  God knew that His daughter was tired and finally gave her rest in his bosom.

Her legacy lives on through her four children, eleven grandchildren, and twenty-three great-grandchildren, all of whom loved her and will miss her dearly.

Jean was an outgoing person who was loved by all she came in contact with. She leaves behind a host of close friends who became extended family over the years.

We choose not to be sad, because we know this time of mourning only lasts a little while, but joy will come.  We rest in knowing that she finally received her reward and she is able to rest peacefully with her Savior.  We will not say good bye for we know we will see her.
