JAMES BLUMER The world has lost a shining light. James "Jim" Blumer, adventurer, animal lover, story teller extraordinaire, of Las Vegas, passed away April 11, 2014. "Blumer," as he was known to family and friends, relished everything life had to offer. He often regaled friends and family with stories of his mischievous youthful pranks. A Texas native, with over 50 years as a Las Vegan, Blumer graduated from Southern Methodist University and was appointed by then Senator Lyndon B. Johnson, to the United States Coast and Geodetic Survey. Blumer, a professional civil engineer, was a project manager at the Nevada Test Site in his early career and later worked in the private sector, where he designed and supervised the construction of roads and structures throughout the Las Vegas Valley. Those who knew and loved Blumer, described him as brilliant, honest, extremely loyal and kind, but most of all, fun. Blumer will be remembered for his soft southern accent, always shined cowboy boots, the unique kindness and acceptance he showed everyone, the amazing engineering projects he designed, his funny stories and (somewhat crude) jokes. He is survived by his devoted wife, of 44 years, Barbara; his daughters, who were the lights of his life, Kati and Misse, and their husbands, Philip and Roger; grandchildren, Jack, Ty, Danielle and baby Gigi; his beloved sister, Dorthea Levitt; and brother-in-law, Leon Levitt of Texas; as well as nieces and nephews, all of whom he absolutely adored.

COL. MARVIN ROSENTHAL U.S. Air Force, Retired Col. Marvin Harold Rosenthal (ret.), 71, of Henderson, passed away April 13, 2014. He was born Sept. 5, 1942. Marv, as many know him, was an avid baseball fan and player as a youngster. He was a bat boy for the St. Louis Cardinals and loved to show off his picture with the great Stan Musial. His love of the game continued in the stands watching his sons and grandson play. He also loved collecting watches, cheering on the UNLV Runnin' Rebels, and not to be forgotten, desserts. Jan, endearingly called "Oksan" by Marv, maintained the highest rank in the household by strictly rationing Marv's sweets. Marv will be forever in the heart of his beloved wife. Marv was born in Key West, Fla., and grew up in southern California. After graduating from Long Beach State University, he served 27 years in the U.S. Air Force, rising to the rank of colonel. He was awarded numerous decorations and meritorious service awards. During his career, he served tours of duty in two wars, the Vietnam War and Operation Desert Storm. He was also deployed to areas throughout the United States and around the world, including Thailand, Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, Netherlands, Germany, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey. His family is proud and honored to have been a part of his distinguished military career that spanned the globe. After retiring from the U.S. Air Force, Marv spent 17 years in mortgage banking for his second career. Most recently, he was with Nevada State Bank as senior vice president of Residential Mortgage Lending, where he found great joy working with his colleagues and customers every day. Marv is survived by his wife, Jan; as well as three children, Stephanie Rosenthal-Shirit, Aaron Rosenthal and Ben Rosenthal; two daughters-in-law, Krystal Rosenthal and Katie Rosenthal; and four grandchildren. Funeral services were previously held Thursday, April 17, at King David Cemetery, 2697 E. Eldorado Lane. In lieu of flowers, the family kindly asks for donations to be made in Marvin's honor to either the Wounded Warrior Project or The V Foundation for Cancer Research. Read Obituary
