From the San Francisco Chronical 7 May 1989: "LAVERTY, HENRY JOSEPH", May 4, 1989; after a brief illness; age 83 years; native Californian; born in Blue Lake, grew up in Eureka and graduated from UC Berkeley in 1926; he worked most of his life in the investment business; during his career he had been a senior trader with Dean Witter, a trader with Davis Skaggs and a stock broker and investment consultant with Porthsmouth Financial services since 1983; he was also a member of the San Francisco Elks Club; he was lovingly remembered by his friend and companion of 21 years Majorie Lee Jones of San Francisco; his sister Margaret Billings of Eureka; his son Gerald C Laverty of Santa Clara; his daughters Aileen Laverty Treadwell of San Rafael, Loreen MacCarthy of Forts Braggs; his grandchildren Alicia, James and Stephanie Laverty of Santa Clara, Aimee MacCarthy of Fort Braggs; and friends.
At Mr Laverty's request his body has been donated to UC Medical Center and there will be no services.
The family requests contributions or letters of support to organizations protecting the California coast from offshore drilling, to Planned Parenhood, or Guide Dogs for the Blind.
Later he was cremated.... his ashes scattered into the sea by Loreen.
