      John Carricaburu

      John Baptiste Carricaburu, longtime veterinarian and resident of the Santa Ynez Valley, died in his Goleta home Sunday afternoon, Feb. 24, after a lengthy illness. With him at the time of his death were his care giver of seven years, Betty Romano, her daughter Iliana, John's wife Peggy DeCastro Carricaburu, and his children Sally Carricaburu, Bryan Carricaburu, Linda Davis, and Janet Bailey.

      John was born in Santa Maria on March 9, 1921, the second, child of John and Maria Carricaburu. His first language was Basque, which he spoke until he started school at Los Olivos Elementary. He graduated from Santa Ynez High School where he was student body president in 1937 and then earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Animal Husbandry at Cal Poly in 1942 where he also served as student body president. He went on to Colorado Agricultural and Mechanical College (now Colorado State University) in Fort Collins and obtained a Doctor of Veterinarian medicine. While a student in Fort Collins, he met and married Leslie Alice Sackett. After graduating from Colorado A&M, he was commissioned first lieutenant in the U.S. army (a rank his grandson Jamie Phillips now shares) and served at Fort Lewis Washington from 1944 until 1947 when he retired with the rank of Captain.

      After his discharge, he returned to his beloved Santa Ynez Valley with his wife Leslie and two children, Bob and Sally. John and Leslie had six children and together built a highly respected and successful large and small animal practice. His children grew up knowing the delicate arts of pulling calves, tubing horses and even more delicate task of de-scenting skunks. Many valley residents will remember John as he drove along the valley from ranch to ranch in his overstuffed station wagon, acknowledging friends on the road with a very slight nod and the simple raising of a finger for a wave. He could recite the entirety of Jack London's "The Cremation of Sam McGee" by heart and with great gusto.

      His commitment to excellence in education is demonstrated by the fact that he served on the Board of Trustees for College Elementary School for five years, the Santa Ynez Valley High Board for 22 years, and the Allan Hancock Community College Board for 13 years. Periodically he served as president for all three boards. Also, he was on the board of directors for Farmers Insurance Exchange from 1967 until 1997. He was a member of the Santa Ynez Valley Elk club and he was active in the Catholic Mens Clubs at the Santa Ynez Mission. He rode with the Vaqueros, and in 1954, "Doc John" became a member of the Rancheros Visitadores as a part of the Los Piasanos Camp. He served as chief veterinarian for the annual trek from the Santa Barbara Mission to the Santa Ynez Mission.

      It was on these rides that the John Carricaburu, the trickster, showed his face. Among many jokes he played, he once bred Pat Paterson's prize quarter horse mare to a donkey as Pat innocently played poker. The delivery of the little mule that spring came as a bit of a surprise.

      In 1958, the County Board of Supervisors appointed him County Veterinarian and he held the office for thirty one years until 1989. He was named "Cal Poly Distinguished Alumnus" in 1967. During the four years prior to the 1964 Olympics, he was veterinarian to the United States Olympic Equestrian Team which was trained In the Santa Ynez Valley.

      A charter member of the Mid-Coast Veterinary Medical Association, John served as its president in 1963. He served in countless committees for the California Veterinary Medical Association, and in 1967 John received the CVMA Veterinarian of the Year Award. In 1973, the California Assembly passed a resolution commending Dr. John Carricaburu for his contributions to his profession and to his community. For, similar contributions to the American Veterinarian association, the national American Veterinarian Association awarded him the Most Outstanding Veterinarian in the United States in 1971. Climaxing his career, he served as President of the American Veterinarian Association from 1974-1975. During the Presidency of Ronald Reagan, John was occasionally called to Rancho Clelo, the Western White House, to treat horses.

      In 1976, John and Leslie sold, their practice and 40 acres on Baseline Avenue in Ballard and bought a house at the foot of the San Marcos Pass in Santa Barbara. His interpretation of retirement was to become chief of veterinary services for the Santa Barbara Humane Society from 1977 until his retirement in 1990.

      In 1979 his beloved wife Leslie died after a brief battle with cancer and was buried in the Oak Hill Cemetery. In 1981, he met Peggy DeCastro, lead singer in the DeCastro Sisters. They were married in 1982 at the Santa Ynez Mission. Her sense of humor and ability to tell a good story gave him much happiness, and he was entranced by her voice, especially when she sang "Teach Me Tonight." He was very proud of her professional career.

      John Carricaburu was a man of rare honesty, generosity, and kindness. Throughout his life, he gave generously of his resources and love to his two wives, his children and his friends in the Santa Ynez Valley. He believes in loyalty, commitment, family and community. The Santa Ynez Valley was the home of his spirit and heart.

      John Carricaburu is preceded in death by his parents, John and Maria Carricaburu, his brothers Raymond and Prosper, his sister in law Marie Carricaburu, his first wife Leslie Sackett Carricaburu and his daughter Dale Carricaburu.

      He is survived by his wife Peggy DeCastro Carricaburu, his children Robert Carricaburu, of Colorado, Linda Carricaburu Davis, of Arroyo Grande, Sally Carricaburu, Bryan Carricaburu and Janet Carricaburu Bailey, all three from Alaska. He is also survived by his devoted nurse, Betty Romero, and her daughter, Iliana, whom he loved for her respect, humor and kindness, his sister-in-law, Mrs. Raymond Carricaburu, and her children, John and Michael Prosper's sons, Tom and Jim, his sister, Polly Frederick's children, Sissy Millie, Ernest, and John. Finally he is survived by eight grandchildren and six great grandchildren.
