To help us remember the good people, past and present, and the good times...

Mel and Pat Oakes’ Website(For ESSENTIAL guide to site click: Site Map)

In this site we include photo albums of our families, hobbies, travels, and special events.  The most recent events were: a trip to Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Hungary and a trip to Turkey,  The family also gathered at the YMCA of the Rockies in Estes Park, CO for a week of hiking, sightseeing and relaxing.  We also followed that with a visit to Steamboat Springs where Beth was participating in a music festival.  Finally a few days in Colorado Springs with Pat’s classmate, Beth Huttig Rebman, rounded out our reprieve from Austin’s summer heat.  Our most recent news is the birth of a new grandson.  Durham Oakes Deifell was born May 6, 2012 in San Francisco. We are delighted.

This web site is dedicated to Patricia Alice Winter Oakes, my wife, my friend and my love.  She taught me the true value of family, a value she seeks every day to enhance.
