COLONEL WILLIAM GEORGE VAN ALLEN Bill Van Allen passed away at Manor Care Home in Reno on November 6, 2004, after a courageous struggle with complications following a heart attack. Bill was born July 19, 1914, in New Brunswick, New Jersey. Bill graduated from Rutgers University with a BS in electrical engineering in 1936. While at Rutgers, Bill distinguished himself by being selected for the Phi Beta Kappa Society and the Tau Beta Pi, both honors in his junior year. In 1948, Bill earned a Master in Science in Civil Engineering at Iowa State University. In 1955, Bill graduated from the Army War College. Upon graduation from Rutgers in 1936, he entered the United States Army and served his country until 1965. While in the Army he served in Panama, Boston, Ft. Leavenworth, Korea, Georgia, and at the Pentagon in the Army General Staff. In 1959 he was involved with the Federal Aviation Agency, and then in 1962, until retirement, he served in the Pacific Ocean Division as a Deputy Division Engineer. While serving in the peace time Army and in World War II and the Korean War, Bill earned many decorations for valor, including the Legion of Merit with 2 oak leaf clusters, the bronze star with one oak leaf cluster, the rarely given French medal, the Croix de Guerre avec Palm and many other commendations and campaign ribbons. After 29 years in the military, Colonel Van Allen was given an offer he could not refuse. He went to work with the Bishop Estate in Honolulu and for the next 20 years Colonel Van Allen advanced from the project coordinator of the Kamehameha Schools to the Director of all land management for the Bishop Estate. After retiring again, Colonel Van Allen developed an endowment fund with Rutgers University to provide 40 scholarships each year to Hispanic students in the nursing and engineering programs. At this point Bill married Hazel Bretzlaff and they both worked on behalf of the Bretzlaff Foundation. It was to this Foundation that Col. Van Allen committed himself and actually was very active until the day before he died. This Foundation contributes up to a million dollars a year to over 50 charitable agencies, primarily here in Reno, Hawaii, Michigan, Washington, and California. Along with the Bretzlaff's company trustees, Mike Malarkey and Dick Gilbert, Col. Van Allen through the Bretzlaff Foundation has endowed Gallaudet University, a college for the hearing impaired. Hillsdale College, the University of Hawaii, our own UNR, TMCC, the National Judicial College, Rutgers University, as well as the Reno Symphony Orchestra and the Reno Chamber Orchestra. The generosity of Col. Van Allen and the Bretzlaff Foundation is not only to the academic and cultural elite of our city, but also to the not so fortunate. The Foundation has contributed extensively to the Boys and Girls Club, the Children's Cabinet, the Reno Latch Keys Program, the McDowell Youth Program, Foster Grandparents, the Nevada Hispanic Services, Kids Korner, Gang Alternatives Partnership, Project Walkabout, Hug High School, Sparks High School, Glenn Hare Vocational Center and many, many others. It was through the personal generosity of Col. Van Allen that the Washoe School District was able to procure the Drug and Weapons Dogs, which are now in use, as well as thousands of new books at Hug High School. Colonel Van Allen has been active in many organizations. He was a director of the UNR Foundation, the director of the Community Foundation of Western Nevada, a director of the Reno Chamber Orchestra, and the Honolulu Symphony Orchestra. He has received the distinguished "Award for Philanthropy" by Rutgers University, the "Friend of Education" award from the Reno Gazette Journal and received the Humanitarian of the Year" award awarded by the National Conference for Christians and Jews. Colonel Van Allen was a true lover of people, and at 85 years old he married a warm, wonderful and charming woman, Nancy Boyle Van Allen, who worked with Bill through the next five years enhancing the lives of all those whom they met. He was preceded in death by his wife of 52 years, Victoria, also by his wife of nine years, Hazel Bretzlaff Van Allen. He is survived by his wife, Nancy, her three children, Susan Boyle Slawson, Thomas and David Boyle. Bill is also survived by his sister Charlotte Johnston, a nephew Christopher and niece Diane, all of New York, and by his cousin Arthur Ellison of Reno. Burial will be on the Cedar Hill Cemetery in Suitland, MD. A celebration of life service will be held in Honolulu in January. Anyone who wishes to honor Colonel Van Allen is urged to send their donations to the Bretzlaff Foundation at 165 West Liberty Street, Suite 210, Reno, NV 89501. And so, we say "Aloha" to Colonel William Van Allen--patriot,scholar, humanitarian, lover and a true "man of integrity".   [Adv Nov. 13, 2004]

Francelia "Billie" Rice Veech, a longtime volunteer and early member of the Outdoor Circle, died Oct. 15, 2004 in Honolulu. She was 92.  Veech was born Francelia Knapp on Aug. 17, 1912, in Jackson, Mich., and graduated from the University of California and the New York School of Social Work. She moved to San Francisco, where she worked on the staff of the YWCA and San Francisco Community Chest.  In 1944, she came to Hawai'i, and served as home service director of the American Red Cross on Kaua'i. In 1945, she married Richard Rice, a member of the prominent Rice family.  While raising a family, Veech continued to work for social causes. She was president of the Girl Scouts and YWCA, and on the national YWCA board.  Veech also was an early member of the Outdoor Circle. As president she helped lead the fight to ban billboards in Hawai'i and preserve the slopes of Diamond Head by encouraging the Legislature to declare it a state monument. She also was active with the Makiki Neighborhood Board and Aloha United Way, and she was a member of Central Union Church and O'ahu Country Club.  Her son, Richard, said she was one of the first trained social workers here and spent a lifetime working to better Hawai'i.  "She came as a malihini and became as kama'aina as anyone could ever be," he said. "Her enduring passion was Hawai'i. That's why she gave of herself in that social-service kind of way."  Veech's first husband died in a traffic accident in January 1966. In 1975, she married John Veech.  Billie Veech is survived by sons, John Steelquist and Richard Rice; stepdaughters, Maile Arnold, Shelia Zaretsky and Carvel Veech; stepson, Alexander Veech; four grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren.  A memorial service will be at 10 a.m. Saturday at Arcadia Retirement Residence. Donations may be made to the Girl Scouts or the YWCA. [Adv Nov. 10, 2004]
