Iron......I am John "JACK" Molino's nephew, by marraige. He married into my family in the 10's or early 20's. He came to Sacto. at the age of 13 and lived there with his Aunt, he was a very industrious man as at the age of 19 he had 2 grocery stores in Sacto. in 1924 he moved to Walnut Grove, CA, (20 miles south of Sacramento on the Sacramento River) opened a Chevrolet agency in Walnut Grove, CA and up the river in Clarksburg just a few miles south of Sacto.. He had the agency in Walnut Grove until 1969. He also owned a few hundred acres of Pears here in the Delta and he bought a Bar/Restaurant in 1961 when he was 60 years of which my Father ran, Jack's interest, for almost 30 years. He and his wife also owned a town here called "Locke" from the mid 1960's until my Father talked him into selling it in 1977....Long story. He, Jack, was instrumental in helping a buddy start a grocery store chain in Sacto. called Raley's as well as helping another friend start up another business in Lake Tahoe, Nevada....Harvey's Resort Casino. Jack had no formal education but was self taught and one would not have known he he dropped out of school at age 13, he was always a true Gentleman, soft spoken and kind hearted as well as respected by his peers......who are you? I can be reached at My name is C.J. Jensen.
