Ed Power, September 9, 1922-March 18, 2017

We received word from Linda Liscomb today of Ed Power’s death.  Those of you who knew Ed, knew a great pilot, adventurer, outdoorsman, avid worldwide traveler and a kind and gentle person.  I met Ed about 15 years ago when he and Linda arrived at MM45 after one of their many trips to the Baja.  Some of you possibly knew Ed decades before I met him when he and his family owned and operated The Original Nut Tree Restaurant  in  Vacaville, California.  The original Nut Tree started as a fruit stand and the first permanent restaurant building opened in 1921. The Toy Shop and the Nut Tree Railroad opened in 1952. The railroad had a quarter-mile track running through the Nut Tree orchards and gardens. The Nut Tree Airport opened in 1955. A new Dining Room opened in 1958. In 1962 the U.S. Post Office designated the area Nut Tree, CA. The Nut Tree Coffee Shop opened across interstate 80 in 1965. In 1970-71 a new bake shop and merchandise area opened. In 1970 the Nut Tree Airport was donated to Solano County.
