Jim passed away on July 22, 2013 from complications of Parkinson's Disease. Born in Detroit, Michigan he and his family migrated to Glendale in 1945. He attended Mark Keppel, Toll and Hoover High. Following that was UCLA where he obtained a PhD. in Systems Engineering. He worked many years at Librascope in Shipboard Engineering and Guidance & Control Systems. He eventually started his own company - Drugan Associates, Inc. This led to many happy years of commuting to Australia to help their navy with their first “in house submarine.” California was his favorite place to be: wine tasting in the Napa Valley, backpacking and fishing in Mammoth and the high sierras, jazz at the Hollywood Bowl and golfing locally and in Palm Desert.

To anyone who missed the Glendale Pops Orchestra's free Bossa Nova concert this past Thursday night at the Americana at Brand, I can only say one thing: Your loss! OK, maybe one more thing: Are you crazy?! The Glendale Pops, led by its talented and charismatic conductor Matt Catingub, continues to astound with its top-notch musical performances and talented guest stars. This time the Pops was joined by Sergio Mendes' rhythm section (!) and the Brazilian singer Teka. As someone who regularly attends live music throughout Los Angeles, I can say with confidence that you will not see a more talented, dynamic group of musicians at any venue in Southern California - not at the Hollywood Bowl, not at the Disney Concert Hall, nowhere.
