Androsevic, Slobodan  
Slobodan "Danny" Androsevic Slobodan "Danny" Androsevic's journey began July 31, 1929 in Banja Luka, Bosnia. He passed away peacefully when his kind and generous heart stopped beating at 5:15am, Wed, May 27th, 2015. His life was centered on two ideals – one was his Bosnian-Croatian Catholic faith; and the other was to provide his family with freedom and opportunity. As a young man growing up in a war-torn communist country, these dreams were just dreams, and so Danny set his sights on the land of opportunity and the home of the free; America. His almost 86 year long life was filled with many travels and adventures with the ultimate goal of achieving his dreams. After studying preventative medicine and safety engineering in Zagreb, he ultimately graduated in Electrical Engineering. In Zagreb, he met the love of his life, Bozica (Kristina) Kropek in 1957. Like Danny, Kristina had the same aspirations, and shared his dreams and visions. They married in January, 1958 and after their only child, daughter Snjezana (Marie) was born in November of 1959, they embarked on a life-long adventure of travel. Slowly working their way to the free West, they moved first to Germany, where Danny worked as an Engineer for the City of Stuttgart. In Germany, life was good for the Androsevic family, yet, it was not what Danny and Kristina had dreamed of, it was not America. So, together with the only remaining relative in their small family, Danny's mother Jelena, they immigrated to Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. There Danny worked for the Acres Company on various large Canadian and International projects, such as the hydro-electric dam in Thailand. In 1974, after years of waiting and praying, the family finally immigrated to sunny Los Angeles, the City of dreams and Our Lady of the Angels. Always entrepreneurially minded, Danny and the family went into, and ultimately succeeded in, Commercial Real Estate and Management. While there were many hardships along the road in their business, Danny found solace in his supportive family, his friends, and his devotion to his faith and his dedication to these three never wavered. His devotion to freedom is evident in his involvement in numerous conservative causes, ultimately earning him the Republican Senatorial Medal of Freedom, and many accolades for humanitarian causes for his beloved homeland of Croatia. Danny is survived by his beloved wife of 57 years, Bozica (Kristina); only daughter Snjezana (Marie) Rees; son in law Daniel Rees; and grandson's Alexander Rees (engaged to Miss Mary Migliorini) and Anthony (Tony) Rees who just graduated in Entrepreneurship from LMU. Visitation will be held on Thursday night, June 4th from 6-8pm, with the Rosary at 7pm at Green Hills Memorial Chapel in Rancho Palos Verdes. Funeral Mass will be held the following day, Friday June 5th at 10:30am at Mary Star of the Sea Church in San Pedro, with interment directly afterwards at Green Hills Memorial Park, and luncheon following thereafter. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made in honor of Danny's memory to St. Anthony's Croatian Church, 712 N. Grand Ave, Los Angeles 90012.

Ferrell, Jack L.  
John "Jack" Louis Ferrell, 87, of Rancho Palos Verdes, passed away peacefully Monday evening, May 11, 2015 of pneumonia. He was born in Cleveland, Ohio, on July 8, 1927, to Louis and Clara Ferrell. Jack graduated from the Benedictine High School in Cleveland, Ohio. He met his beloved wife Rosemary while attending John Carroll University. He studied and earned a Bachelor of Science in Manufacturing Engineering from Carnegie Institute of Technology at Carnegie Mellon University. He enjoyed the camaraderie of the Delta Upsilon fraternity. He served in World War II in the Pacific Theater in the Navy on USS LCS (L)-51 from 1943-45. He became a Grand Knight of a local chapter of the Knights of Columbus in Ohio. He began his career in manufacturing at Cleveland Graphite Bronze, Racine Hydraulics, and Parker-Hannifin. He was also employed by TRW REDA Pump working with the manufacturing and implementation of water and oil pumps in the Midwestern United States as well as advised many manufacturing processes in China and the Middle East. He was also employed at TRW rising to Vice President of Manufacturing and Systems, for the Space and Defense Sector. He acted as President of the Society of Manufacturing Engineers and Chairman of the Board of the Friends of Cabrillo Marine Aquarium where he was integral in acquiring funds to expand the educational space. He is now Director Emeritus alongside John Olguin at the aquarium. He then served the California Polytechnic University at San Luis Obispo as a member of the President's Cabinet, and was the founding Executive Director of the California Manufacturing Technology Center for Los Angeles County.

An avid sailor and golfer, he was most at home on his cherished sailboat Sea-Du-Cin and enjoyed golfing with the Grumpy Gramps and his grandson. A humble, loving, and humorous man of integrity and intellect, he lived a rich and fulfilled life having experiences so broad and memories so unfathomably deep, he loved to tell his stories and pull his famous one-liners. He traveled the world and was involved with global influence of manufacturing and technology. When faced with a challenge, he would ask himself, "What's the worst that could happen?" and offered the same question to others asking him for advice. His wife of 64 years, Rosemary; sister, Carolyn Rice; daughter, Kathleen (James) Yinger; son, John (Rena) Ferrell; three grandchildren, Cynthia Ferrell, Sean Ferrell, and David Yinger; and one great-grandchild Caleb Ferrell survive him.
