If you would like to post an obituary of a San Dieguito alumnus, please let us know.
Nancy Jane Arbuckle Devoted mother, wife, and daughter. 05/06/1957 ~ 05/28/2010Born in San Diego to Roberta Marjorie Dorman and Robert Dean Arbuckle; Granddaughter of BJ Dorman and Roberta Mullen.
At no more than two, Nancy would wake at night and ride on her rocking horse until she fell asleep. At six, she began saddle seat, and at 14 won her first jumper class. She was a horse whisper; a woman who could get on any horse and understand how to connect with them. She had many loves: Soda Pop, her pony Vicky, Up-Town Charlie, Ramblin’ Roan. Nancy and Double R had a special, one-of-a-kind dynamic partnership. She inspired many equestrians with her natural, spirited talent as a fierce competitor in hunters and jumpers shows all over California and won most of her medal classes.
Nancy’s teenage years were spent riding and hanging out at Pasa Tiempo, Rancho Santa Fe. A fifth generation Californian, Nancy came from a long line of horse women. Nancy had a love for all animals. For years, she bred, raised, and sold cockatiel birds. Nancy was a passionate, talented surfer. Graduated from San Dieguito High School a year early in 1974, where she participated in the nation’s first surf P.E. program. Since the late 80s, Nancy could be found at Igor’s surf spot almost every day; a true local through and through and enforcer of surf-beach etiquette.
Nancy was preceded in death by her sister, Ann Arbuckle, and her son, Matthew Moody. She is survived by her daughter, Brooke; her husband, Theodore; her mother, Roberta “Bobbie;” many cousins, nephews, nieces and friends in both the surfing and equestrian world. Nancy enjoyed coffee, conversion, Mountain Dew, gardening, Crosby Stills and Nash, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Sci-Fi movies, halibut, milk, arguing and Camel cigarettes. Throughout life, Nancy kept a special relationship with God. She was a woman taken by the wind; she had a zestful drive in life that is indescribable unless one knew her. Nancy, shine on you crazy diamond.

“It is with a heavy heart that I post this message. Our classmate Tommy Gleason passed away last week. He had been battling cancer for some time. I actually did not know Tommy in high school but became connected to him through my husband after high school. Tommy was such a sweetheart. A gentle soul. He worked at the Home Depot in Encinitas. His wife Kathy called today to let us know that there will be a memorial service for Tommy on February 14th at 1 p.m. United Church of Christ, 2020 Chestnut, Carlsbad. Please pass the word on to any friends of Tommy that you can think of.

This email is to let you know that my brother Pat Kimberley Kinnear, class of 1974, died on Feb 3, 2005 in his sleep of a heart attack. He was 49 years old when he died…
…We miss him dearly as he was a very kind and loving brother, son and friend. He was an exceptional drummer, artist and loved the ocean. He had many talents in fact and was always there to help those in need.
In HS he was a surfer and sometimes [didn’t make] it back to school if the surf was not good that day:) Kim, as we called him, never married but he had one true love from SDHS and that was Marla Cruz. He never really got over her and talked of her until the day he died.
He knew so many people in Solana Beach, Del Mar, Encinitas and all over North county. In fact I would often be asked if I was Kim’s sister because we resemble one another and it’s an unmistakable last name.
He is survived by his mom, dad, 2 sisters, and 2 brothers, Our oldest brother died at 50 of a heart attack as well. Kim was known to be kind to everyone and had a heart of gold and a smile of sincerity.
