REMEMBERING JOHNNY MODOLO

THIS IS a recent post on my "LA NOSTRA COSTA" (OUR COAST) FACEBOOK PAGE.

In "La Nostra Costa (Our Coast), page 356, I write about the death of Johnny Modolo at age 20, (1948), and how the whole North Coast mourned his death. I also write (pages 36-38) about the Filipino workers and their influence on the North Coast (including their cock fights). The article which was published in the Santa Cruz Sentinel a few years back talks about both. I also included the wedding photo of Frank and Rosina Modolo, Johnny Modolo's parents.
