I want to pay tribute to my Dad, Harold Woolsey. He orchestrated the construction most of the homes built east of Barstow Road and North of Idle Spurs and I found out last night that he built the housing track in Yermo. He also built Hawaiian Village homes, Skyline homes, Montara homes, Fashion Square, Irwin Estates, and homes east of Yucca Street. For a while his business was Woolsey and Associates, then it was Hood and Woolsey. I am very proud of him. I think he built 8 housing tracks in the Barstow area.
If he was alive today I believe he would still be figuring out a way to get families into affordable housing. He was a visionary who cared for people.
Thank you Dad.
