Many of you probably are familiar with Remi LeMay but just don't know it.
He's a 20-year resident of Modesto. But most of you probably know him as the resident of "that house on Tully Road."
LeMay said he's been decorating his home for about 30 years 10 of those being at his former residence. The very first year he did it in Modesto, he made the front page of The Bee.
Over the years, the LeMays have done up their yard in a variety of elaborate landscapes, from a pirate ghost ship to a haunted carnival to an animated grim reaper fishing from a rowboat. His inspiration for this year?
"Honestly, my theme is 'I'm running out of ideas.' This just so happens to be a spinoff of the one I did in 1995."
As for why he keeps going to all the decorating effort, not just for Halloween but also at Christmastime, he simply said, "The children."
He loves the looks of amazement on kids' faces as they enjoy the wonders of his attractions.
On average, LeMay sees at least 1,000 to 2,000 people visit his home on Halloween day.
He has a donation box in front of the attraction to benefit the Oakdale Animal Hospital.
So remember, folks, to stop by and check out the "Tully Road haunt" just up the street from Davis High School. You're in for quite a treat this season.
