In Memory of Fred Allen 

Frederick Stevens Allen Jr. left behind a massive legacy when he passed away in his home in Santa Barbara, California, early on October 9, 2017.

Freddie was a shining example of playfulness, service and generosity to all those who knew him. A true patriarch, he was reserved and deeply considerate in times of difficulty, and radiated youthful enthusiasm in times of celebration. He improved the lives of countless people.

Fred humbly carried many great accomplishments. He was a son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, naval officer, banker, passionate photographer, world traveler, steward of the Adirondack League Club in Upstate New York, and was deeply committed to his faith in service to All Saints By-the-Sea Episcopal Church in Montecito, California.

He was born on October 15, 1938, in Chicago, Illinois, and raised in Ross, California, where he attended the Ross Grammar School before attending St. George’s School in Newport, Rhode Island. He continued in Philadelphia at the University of Pennsylvania, where he joined St. Anthony Hall and earned a Bachelor’s degree with honors in American Studies.

Fred served his country in the U.S. Navy, achieving the rank of captain. He spent 30 years with Wells Fargo Bank, and retired as vice president. He served the Santa Barbara community for decades with the Rotary Club of Santa Barbara North.

Fred is survived by his wife, Suzie; his children, Christina of Seattle, Washington, Charlie (Kim) of Greenbrae, California, John of Los Angeles, California, and Hannah of Santa Barbara; his brothers, Jonathan of San Francisco, California, and Thomas (Linda) of St. Helena, California, and his sister, Alice (Fritz) Olcott of Kittery Point, Maine; his grandchildren, Avery Shield, Callaway, Brooks and Cassidy Allen; and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews.

Fred’s memorial service will take place at 2 p.m. on Veterans Day, November 11, 2017, at All Saints By-the-Sea Episcopal Church, 83 Eucalyptus Lane, Santa Barbara 93108.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the American Red Cross.

July 5th Meeting was a Business Meeting
Dr. Kim Selkoe hails from the Boston area where she took scuba diving lessons as a young girl. She studied Biology in college and received her PhD in Marine Biology from UCSB.  She is the first director of FishSB, a joint initiative of the SB Region Chamber of Commerce and Commercial Fishermen of Santa Barbara. Her goal is to increase interest in local seafood and to protect and increase the economic health of fisheries. 
 She will also be working to dispel much of the misinformation surrounding seafood, such as unfounded fears about the impacts of the Refugio Oil Spill, which never reached far enough offshore to affect commercial fisheries, and domoic acid levels in crabs.  Funding for this project has been obtained with a settlement grant from Plains.
Some interesting facts she pointed out:
Seafood is the primary source of protein for 1 billion people in the world.
Locally about 150 boats bring in 11 million pounds of 30 species of seafood, 95% of which goes to LA for processing and distribution.  The seafood industry has the lowest carbon emitter ratios, almost 9 times less than beef.
California has the strictest marine protected area regulations in the world, but they appear to be working.
Two main upcoming plans are (1) Maritime Community Sustainability Plan to create more thriving coastal economy for Santa Barbara, and (2) Santa Barbara Fish Hub to increase access to healthy local seafood. She hopes to reboot the Saturday Fisherman’s Market and the pier across from Brophy Bros. 
Lots of very interesting questions and answers.  Great program.
