I think Oscar Presco was named after Oscar Wilde and his brother after the writer Victor Hugo, who had to see the earthquake, too. Oscar built a boat and raced it in the bay. He was the Master Mason of his lodge. They had to know the Buck family.
May Ellen Presco Passed away December 25th, 2006. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband and best friend Donald E. Presco. She is survived by her four children Donn Presco of Burney, Debbie (Russ) Nelson and Diane (Bill) Simkins all of Redding and Donna (Loyd) Wilbur of Vermont. She will be deeply missed by her four grandchildren, Brad Silvers, Jennifer Buchnoff and Erin Callanan and Colleen Callanan and one great granddaughter. Born in San Francisco on December 31, 1923 May grew up in Los Angeles and the Bay Area. While living in San Francisco, she met her future husband Don Presco. After they married they honeymooned on the sailboat which they built together and on which they enjoyed racing on SF Bay. They built their home in San Rafael where they raised their four children. May enjoyed golf and was a member of the Meadow Club and later Discovery Bay Country Club and Yacht Club. She also enjoyed her bridge club for many years. After the death of her husband, she moved to Redding to be close to her children. At her request, no services will be held.
