F. Warren Lovell, M.D.
Ventura, California
June 13, 1922 — July 15, 2016
Col. F. War-
ren Lovell, M.D.,
U.S. Air Force
Reserve (Retired),
of Ventura, Cali-
fornia, passed away Fri-
day, July 15, 2016, at age
94. Warren was born June
13, 1922, to Sherman Wat-
son Lovell and Ruby Jane
Dunn Lovell, in Astoria,
His early years were
spent in Astoria where he
hunted, sailed, worked in a
salmon cannery and helped
out at Lovell Auto Co. He
enlisted in the National
Guard, and was home on
weekend leave when his
mom heard the news from
Hawaii on Sunday morn-
ing, Dec. 7, 1941.
Warren became a mem-
ber of 87th Mountain
Infantry (precursor to 10th
Mountain Division) U.S.
Army in 1942, skiing and
training in the snow on
Mount Rainier. He was
accepted into U.S. Army
Air Corps pilot training
program later that year, and
qualified as a B-25G pilot.
1st Lt. Fred “Love” Lovell
joined the 820th Bomb
Squadron, 41st Bomb
Group (M), 7th Air Force,
and headed out to the
Pacific. He and his crew
saw the mushroom cloud
over Nagasaki, Japan.
After the war, War-
ren enrolled in the Uni-
versity of Oregon, follow-
ing his beloved brother,
Bob. He joined the group
of Lovell Phi Beta Kappas.
In 1950, he and Mary Mar-
garet Jones married and
trekked to Chicago where
he attended Northwestern
Medical School. The cou-
ple made lifelong friends,
and their kids started com-
ing along.
Warren went back into
the military, the U.S. Air
Force by then, as a fly-
ing flight surgeon. He was
assigned to the Armed
Forces Institute of Pathol-
ogy at Walter Reed Army
Medical Center.
After leaving the Air
Force, Warren worked as
a hospital pathologist and
opened a laboratory with
partners in Seattle. He
was also a partner in a cat-
tle ranch, as well as being
part of the Lovell Auto Co.
He flew with the U.S. Air
Force Reserve.
Warren was a board cer-
but added forensics to the
mix. After he and Mary
divorced, he applied for
a job in Ventura and was
hired as medical exam-
iner of Ventura County in
1981. He continued
consulting on air-
craft accidents, and
also testified as an
expert on police
brutality cases.
He and June Ann Hen-
Arvada, Colorado, in
1981. After her death in
2002, Warren married June
Wineinger Seery (June No.
2) in 2004, in Ventura.
After retirement, War-
ren worked with Univer-
sity of California, Irvine,
doing examinations as part
of a study of schizophre-
nia. The Allen Institute
also hired him to assist in
their study, as well.
He loved music, study-
ing languages, good food
and travel, but most of
all, talking to friends. He
was active in Rotary for
years and served on the
board of the Salvation
Army. He and both Junes
attended Grace Lutheran
Church, and appreciated
the love and kindness of
the congregation.
Warren is survived by
his first wife, Mary Jones
Hudson of Seattle; a sis-
ter-in-law, Mary Robin-
son Lovell of Astoria; and
children Peggy (Joe Spah)
and Sherman, all of the
Seattle area, Robert (Mar-
jie) of Makawao, Hawaii,
Mary Jo (Chris Blazina)
of Bainbridge Island, and
Tina (Rick Brynsvold) of
Shelby Township, Michi-
gan. The proudest grand-
father in the world leaves
Katie, Matthew and Bren-
dan Spah, Lily and Jemma
Blazina and Douglas and
Kristin Brynsvold. War-
ren was the very proud and
loving uncle of Bill Lovell,
Jane Lovell, Anne Saar-
heim-Riggs and Martha
Dahl, as well as step-niece
Angela Kalen. He is also
survived by wife June No.
2; stepsons Michael and

Astoria man gets six months in
prison in celebrity hacking case
Stole explicit
photos from
Associated Press
Astoria man who admitted
hacking hundreds of email
accounts and stealing explicit
photos from several unidenti-
ied celebrities was sentenced
Thursday to six months in fed-
eral prison.
U.S. District Judge John A.
Kronstadt sentenced Andrew
Helton to the prison term and
two years of supervised release
on Thursday.
Helton pleaded guilty in
March to stealing 161 nude or
explicit photos from 13 people,
including unidentiied celebri-
ties. Authorities have said they
do not believe any of the images
he stole were publicly released.
His arrest in 2013 preceded the
leaking of hundreds of nude
images of celebrities, including
Oscar-winning actress Jennifer
Lawrence, model Kate Upton
and others.
“For more than two years,
defendant Andrew Helton tar-
geted, baited, and hooked unsus-
pecting victims with his phishing
e-mails,” Assistant United States
Attorney Stephanie S. Chris-
tensen wrote in a iling urging
Kronstadt to sentence Helton to
at least a year in prison. “He tar-
geted strangers, acquaintances,
and celebrities alike. He trolled
through their private e-mail
accounts, accessing the most pri-
vate of communications. He sys-
tematically pilfered nude and
intimate images of his victims
and stored them in his own com-
puter for personal use.”
His attorney contended Hel-
ton should not receive a prison
sentence because the phishing
technique Helton used was not
technologically sophisticated.
Helton said in lengthy remarks
in court that his arrest forced
him to confront his mental
health issues and change his life.
“For the last … ive years or
so, I’ve been a dead man walk-
ing, so to speak,” Helton said at
the outset of lengthy comments
about how his arrest changed his
“Mental illness took over my
life and surrounded everything,”
Helton said. Court ilings noted
he was diagnosed with bipolar
disorder after his arrest in 2013
and has been receiving treat-
ment ever since.
He said for the irst time in
his life, he can envision a future
and wants to help people. He
told Kronstadt he has a book
coming out of short stories that
he hopes will help people who
have to undergo certain surgical
“I have a better life now than
I could have ever imagined,”
Helton said in court.
Kronstadt said Helton was
clearly well-educated and had
“a substantial amount of talent.”
Helton nodded when the judge
told him that the case involved
“very serious invasions of pri-
vacy,” but Kronstadt said he
hoped the sentence would allow
Helton to move forward.
“I regard this as part of a new
beginning,” Kronstadt said.
Prosecutors say Helton’s
“phishing” scheme involved
sending victims emails they
thought were from Apple or
Google. The messages asked
victims to verify their email
accounts by clicking on a link
that took them to a phony web-
site, where Helton collected
their usernames and passwords.
With variances, Pearl of Seaside moves forward

The Daily Astorian
SEASIDE — One motel will
come down and another will
go up as the Seaside Planning
Commission approved vari-
ances for the Pearl of Seaside, a
48-room motel on the Prom.
The property is being devel-
oped by Antoine and Rocio
Simmons of Haystack Lodg-
ings, a management company
that owns and operates bou-
tique motels, including Sea-
side’s Gilbert Inn, which the
couple purchased in 2014.
“I don’t want it to be a
square box,” Antoine Sim-
mons said of the Pearl. “I want
it to be something that is archi- tract with Simmons, which he
tecturally designed, that has described as “a serious eyesore
some character. I want it to be to everyone.”
