One year ago: Hoyt S. Pardee



Hoyt Pardee might sound like a familiar name. Maybe he built the home you live in. Or at least the construction company he and his brothers took over from their father might have raised that roof. The company, known as Pardee Construction and now Pardee Homes, has built thousands of homes in Southern California. One of the first belonged to Will Rogers.


The family business was sold to Weyerhaeuser Co. in 1969, and Hoyt Pardee later founded Pardee Tree Nursery in Oceanside.
