Honoring the Memory of Ernie Righetti


The Cal Poly community was saddened to learn of the passing of Ernie Righetti on January 26. Ernie and his sons were heavily involved in local agriculture, and were ardent supporters of the Cal Poly weather station, operated by ITRC.


The Righetti family has requested, in lieu of flowers, donations be sent for the support and maintenance of the Cal Poly official weather station.
