Wendell Waldo Roscoe was about as self-made as they come. Mr. Roscoe taught himself how to pilot an airplane and play the piano. He embarked on a successful career as a local developer, creating the Pink Horse Ranch subdivision in the 1950s near Foothill College in Los Altos Hills.
“It can’t be done” was a phrase Mr. Roscoe never uttered. In his 100-plus years, he never shied away from a challenge – or adventure.
