every young kid dreams of: hunting and fishing all day, living in a logging camp with all
the opportunities to get into trouble.
Leaving home at 17 to join the Navy for four years, completing his military obligation,

apprenticeship contest, going on to enjoy 25 years of building things, refineries, sewage
treatment plants, glass plants, chemical plants, and dams. Retiring in 1988, returning to
school to obtain an AA degree in electronics, going to work for Lockheed, working on
the Hubble telescope and the guiding system for the Patriot missile project. Retiring to
Redmond, Ore., in 1990.
In retirement  he and his wife, RoseAnn, were able to travel the world... one of his most
favorite things to do.
Dave is survived by his wife of 47 years; sons, Brent of Calif., and Lyle of Md.; five
grandchildren; one great-granddaughter; two sisters and one brother. Preceded in death
by a son, one brother and parents. He will be greatly missed by his family and many
friends of Bill W.
