I loved the stories my Dad (Doug Unger) and Bud would tell while working on the Hot Rods at my Dad'sRead More shop. He truly was a great man. If not for Bud Harbin, the Miss Imperial Beach Pageant would not have been what it was through the 80's and 90's. Our condolences to his family. The Unger Family and O'Neal Family

My condolences to the whole Harbin family. I moved to IB when my kids where in High School andRead More attended Mar Vista. I got to know Bud through the wrestling program.

Mr. IB! That’s what I would call Bud Harbin. Bud always bragged about the city that he lovedRead More Imperial Beach. There was never a dull moment when Bud was around. I met Bud in the late 70’s and where ever we went around the country he would always say IB could do it better. I know Imperial Beach has lost a GREAT ambassador and a city treasure. My deepest condolences to Pam and his family. Wally Gutierrez State President California Jaycees 1988-89

Hat off to Cal and "His Dog Spot" for providing thousands of jobs for under-employedRead More animal actors in Hollywood. Every animal in every commercial gag was 'HIS DOG SPOT" Spot could be a monkey or a lion. You never knew and that was why people actually looked forward to his commercials to see what animal was going to be 'HIS DOG SPOT" Cal Worthington is survived by SPOT.....MANY OF THEM NAMED SPOT WHO GOT THEIR START IN HOLLYWOOD WORKING FOR CAL WORTHINGTON AS "HIS DOG SPOT"! The Beverly Hillbillys may have stolen Cal's jingle music as well.

I grew up on Beverly Avenue, 3 doors down from Freda... She would take a walk everyday, and mostRead More days I would walk with her, sometimes she'd have 5 or so of us kids from our street. She is one of my earliest and favorite memories. I saw her some years back and was so happy to let her know what joy those walks with her meant to me. I could go on & on with the memories of her....always having something special for me at Halloween, held my hand & walked me home when I hurt myself on my big wheel so much more. What a sweet sweet lady. May she rest in peace
Stephanie Kinnamon April 5, 2013 at 08:03 pm

He will be missed by myself & family. He walks with god now. I love you Marliyn. Love Kathy
