Longtime Running Springs Resident Lincoln Tanaka Has Died

Absolutely breathtaking!

I was so sad to hear this morning that wonderful, giving, funny Lincoln Tanaka has died. Those of us who are “oldies but goodies” in Running Springs will remember that he and his wife Gladys owned Genii’s Candles many years ago. The shop, which is now part of Jensen’s Running Springs, specialized in cards and gifts of all kinds. For years it was the “go to” place if you needed a last minute gift or a card.

Lincoln was a member of the Arrowbear Lake Lions Club a long time ago and he was always ready and willing to help our small mountain communities any way he could. Along with everyone else, I adored him!

I will post more information when a service is arranged. He was so respected in our communities so my heart goes out to his family and the hundreds of people who remember him so well. He truly was a quiet, extraordinary man. I know his family and all of us who knew and loved him will remember him for a very long time.
