    A great and Kind man. He placed no restricitons on his kindess to or acknowledgement of those around him. It didn't matter if one was a year resident of Lodi, or a native, they were treated with the same graciousness. He will be missed by the citizens of and Lodi as a whole. I am sure you are resting in peace Mr. Katzakian.

    Was just thinking of "Bo" the other day as I passed his house. Back several years ago i went into the bank to "recruit" Bo to the boy scout board. well he looked at me & said I've been there, What's wrong with you? Don't you put your pants on every morning like everybody does? Soon after that I was on the Council Boy Scout Board!

    There are men who spend their whole lives trying to "look good", here was a man who spent his time just being good. I've no doubt that the heavens rejoiced to have him home with them again. Here's to a life well spent Mr. Katzakian. You made a very positive difference in my life and I'm a better person for having known you. Rest in Joyous Peace!
