Many Rancho Peñasquitos community members gathered at Hotel Karlan in April to recognize and honor Bill Diehl for over 40 years of contributions to 92129. Bill has been extremely active in the PQ community since 1975, witnessing its growth from infancy to the thriving community it is today. He has played a critical role in developing local parks, streets, and landscaping, serving on the Parks and Recreation Council, the Rancho Peñasquitos Town Council, PQ VFW Post 11388, and the City of San Diego’s Peñasquitos East Maintenance Assessment District. He has also served our country as a former naval officer and reservist. Bill and his wife Loretta are relocating to Ohio to be closer to family, but Rancho Peñasquitos will not forget the many years of selfless service he gave to our community.
