The Farinas
on Renkrib Avenue


John and Barbara Farina bought their house on Renkrib Avenue when it was brand new in the early 1960s and raised their two daughters, Carolinn and Nadra.  When I asked John whether he had any sons he said "I didn't order any boys!" John adores his girls and talks fondly of his family and the early days in San Carlos.  He is also an awsome neighbor, and I am grateful to him for sharing his family photos with us.
