Founder Fred Appleton (1915-1995) was retired from being an engineer at Litton Industries. Living in Aptos, California, he was a very active member of Sons in Retirement (SIRS), an organization very much like Retired Active Men. He moved to Pismo Beach in 1987.

Appleton was denied his request to establish a branch of SIRS in the Five Cities, SIRS saying that they did not wish to form chapters south of Monterey County. They did, however, allow him to use their by-laws and other documents as models in setting up a similar organization in San Luis Obispo County. That initial branch, Five Cities Retired Active Men (now known as Oceano), was formed in 1988 and thrived.
