Happy Anniversary!

Today we celebrate the 44th Wedding Anniversary of Craig and Donna Pykles here at Pykles Remodeling. They met on a Summer afternoon in their youth when Craig was on a lunch break as a summer assistant at the Scripps Institute of Oceanography in La Jolla during his undergraduate studies at SDSU. You may have walked down the concrete staircase that leads to the shores from the parking lot located on the corner of Kennel Way and El Paseo Grande. The story goes that Craig would walk down that staircase to eat his lunch for the half hour he was allotted everyday. And on one fine summer afternoon, out of the blue, a girl showed up that caught Craig’s eye. Donna happened to be on vacation visiting her Grandma in San Diego for a week having come down from Oxnard. Too shy to say hello, Craig ate his lunch quietly to himself and found the courage to casually mention to Donna’s Grandma, “you have a lovely daughter” before proceeding to leave the beach, half expecting to never see either of them again. That night, my Dad says he said a prayer, in which he asked God if he could see that girl, My Mom, again the next day. And the very next day, at the same time and the same location down that same staircase from the parking lot on the corner of Kennel and Paseo Grande playing in the waves and sand was my Mom. Now there is much more to this story that I don’t want to give away, including an epic first date culminating with their first...

Howard Pykles 100th Birthday!

Here’s a toast to the man I knew, revered and loved as ‘Papa’. This picture of Howard Pykles was taken of him doing one of the things he loved most. Pheasant Hunting. Although he passed 13th years ago at the age of 88, he taught me a thing or two about life, work, honesty, faith and just what it meant to be a good person during the time I was blessed to share with him as a young man. So here’s to the Founder of Pykles Remodeling and Repairs, my Grandpa and my friend. God Bless the good man who was, is and always will be Howard...

43 Years and still going strong…

Here’s a toast to my Old Man and Mom who have been together now for 43 years of married life today. I know that this is a blog for our business but the way I see it, our family wouldn’t be anything without the example these two have set in sticking things out even when they haven’t been easy. Mom and Dad, we love you and only hope that you continue to find the love and happiness in this life that you both wholeheartedly...
