>Public Guardian in Control


The two sons and wife of prominent local businessman Larry Shehadey have agreed to let Fresno County’s Public Guardian be his permanent conservator, a decision that “avoids a potentially ugly court battle” over his care.

101 year old Shehadey built Producers Dairy into one of Fresno’s most successful businesses. Family members have said he suffers from dementia.

Last year, the Public Guardian began an investigation of June Lattanzio, who is Shehadey’s wife. The county agency alleged that Lattanzio isolated Shehadey from friends and family and even threatened to move him out of the country. The Public Guardian sought successfully to become his temporary conservator. He was moved out of the home he shared with Lattanzio, and the agency took responsibility for his daily care.

Not long afterward, Lattanzio and Shehadey’s two sons filed competing court briefs seeking to gain control of Shehadey’s life by becoming his permanent conservator.

A court trial on the matter was set for earlier this month, but papers filed in Fresno County Superior Court showed the matter was resolved before the trial started.
