Percy Paul Provost, U.S.Navy, Chief Petty Officer, Retired, and local author, has achieved yet another milestone.  On November 28, 2010, he attained the age of ninety years, the most senior member of the Provost Family, and is still, regularly, hitting the golf links at his home course, Elkhorn Country Club, Stockton, CA. 

On Saturday, November 20, 2010, he was celebrated with a surprise birthday luncheon, at Elkhorn, attended by nearly eighty relatives and friends, hosted by his wife, Frances J. Provost.  Master of Ceremonies for the afternoon was cousin, Mr. James Dorn, also a U.S.Navy retiree, of Castro Valley.  Mrs. Billie G. Wright, sister-in-law, and niece, Mrs. LaShon Caldwell, both of Adelanto, CA and Mrs. Beverly Daniels, longtime friend, of Oakland, served as Receptionists and Mr. Robert L. Jackson, cousin, of Oakland, was Videographer/ Photographer for the day.  Among the guests were former Pastor, Rev. Robert L. Walker, of Chowchilla, who honored him in song, current Pastor, Rev. Rod Suess, Rev. Dwight Friesen who gave the Invocation, Physician, Dr. Tomio Odama and Rev. Trudy Whitaker-Huff, who, along with husband Mr. Keith Huff, traveled from Pearland, Texas, gave the Dismissal for this festive occasion.  First cousin, Mr. Joseph B. Provost, of Elk Grove, second most senior member of the Provost Family, was also in attendance.

And, yes, it was a total surprise for the Guest of Honor!
