Dr. J. Lindsay Oaks

Dr. J. Lindsay Oaks, D.V.M., Ph.D, of Pullman, succumbed to an aggressive Neuroendocrine tumor on January 15, 2011 at Holy Family Hospital in Spokane, WA. The Rosary service will be held at 4 PM on Friday, February 11, 2011 at Kimball Funeral Home in Pullman, WA. The Funeral Mass will be celebrated at 10 AM on Saturday, February 12, 2011 at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Pullman. Vault interment will follow at the I.O.O.F. Cemetery in Pullman, WA. Lindsay was born August 6, 1960 in Corpus Christi, TX to Jerald L. and J. Kathleen (Jones) Oaks Sr. He moved with his family growing up in Oklahoma, Colombia, South America, Israel, and then to Denver, CO where he graduated from Cherry Creek High School., Dr. Oaks completed his undergraduate and professional education at Colorado State University, graduating in 1986 with his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree. Keeping with his lifelong passion for raptors and a taste for international work, he began his career in clinical practice at the Dubai Falcon Hospital and Dubai Equestrian Centre, in the United Arab Emirates. His interest and expertise in raptors and horses would prove to be a driving force his entire career. After a year in clinical practice in Chino, California from 1989-1990, Dr. Oaks came to the College of Veterinary Medicine at Washington State University for postgraduate education and training in microbiology, where he began a distinguished career in academic veterinary medicine that kept him in Pullman until his untimely death. Lindsay achieved specialty diplomate status in the American College of Veterinary Microbiologists, and was recently elected by colleagues to serve on the Board of Governors for that specialty. He was a highly respected colleague and leader in his specialty organization, the American Association of Veterinary Laboratory Diagnosticians, and served on the Editorial Board of the Journal of Veterinary Diagnostic Investigation for the past six years., As a faculty member in the College of Veterinary Medicine at Washington State University, Dr. Oaks served as a Section Head in the Washington Animal Disease Diagnostic Laboratory. He was a widely consulted and respected microbiologist among his professional colleagues in clinical practice throughout the Pacific Northwest and the Nation, and his loss to the profession is felt profoundly. Lindsay led the microbiology training program in the Department of Veterinary Microbiology and Pathology, was a lecturer in many courses, and most recently was a course director for the veterinary virology course. In his typical quiet and unassuming way, and with his clinical experience providing a practical perspective, he was able to establish a rapport and trust with his students that made him a highly popular, respected and effective mentor for so many veterinarians and microbiologists in training. He was much beloved by his students, and it was in the classroom that he felt he could contribute most to a profession that had given him so much., Dr. Oaks had a distinguished research career that spanned from the laboratory to the field. His colleagues and collaborators will sorely miss his contributions into the intricate mechanisms of viral action and persistence. Lindsay will be most remembered around the world for his work in emerging disease discovery and conservation medicine. He was a lifelong friend and trusted resource for the Peregrine Fund, working since his teen years in restoring populations of falcons and other raptors. He discovered the viral cause of high death loss in captive Aplomado Falcons, and worked to highlight the role of lead in causing the death of California Condors. But it is his leadership in elucidating the role of a veterinary anti-inflammatory drug in the devastating decline of Oriental white-backed and other Gyps vultures on the Indian subcontinent that carved his name in the annals of conservation medicine forever. This work, which in 2004 was published in Nature, one of the most prestigious scientific publications in the world, provided the insight that led the way in saving that species from extinction., Dr. Oaks' colleagues and friends from Pullman to the Middle East to Asia mourn his loss along with his family, but also celebrate his life, knowing that his impact will be forever remembered. His passion was fishing (all types) and Falconry. He is survived by his three children Gilbert Oaks, Sara Ulibarri and Gillian Oaks all of Pullman; the mother of his children Catherine Ulibarri of Pullman; his father Jerald L. Oaks Sr., of Denver, CO; his mother J. Kathleen Pratt of Houston, TX; his stepmother Elena G. Oaks of Denver, CO; his sister Kristi Accarrino of Tavernier, FL; and his uncles Harry Jones and John C. Oaks. Lindsay's family has asked that in lieu of cards and flowers, memorial gifts may be made to the College of Veterinary Medicine, Washington State University, PO Box 647010, Pullman, WA 99164 or to The Peregrine Fund, 5668 W. Flying Hawk Lane, Boise, ID 83709. KIMBALL FUNERAL HOME of Pullman is caring for the family. Online condolences may be sent to

Gerald Arthur "Jerry" Shannon Jr.

Born on September 15, 1931, loving father, devoted husband, trusted businessman, and loyal friend Jerry Shannon passed into the next realm from his Edmonds, WA home on January 18, 2011 at age 79, with the love of his wife and family sending him on his way., Though now gone from this earth, his quick, melodic laugh and easy hang-tooth smile, his rose-kissed cheeks and diamond-glinted eyes will be long-remembered by anyone he met, but especially by those he loved best, those he fought for hardest, and those for whom his playful nature was directed., Fishing, boating, golf, poker, trivia, or a heaping plate of spaghetti - anything that would help surround him with his family or friends was his truest passion and greatest happiness., A memorial service in Jerry's honor will be held on Sunday, January 30, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. at the Edmonds Plaza Room, 650 Main Street, Edmonds, WA (top floor of the Edmonds library).



Gerald Leon Cooper

COOPER, Gerald Leon, Died on Thursday, January 27, 2011 at the Spokane Veterans Home with his loving wife of nearly 57 years, Lorraine, at his bedside. Services to honor Gerald's memory and contributions to the community, will be held on Monday, January 31, 2011 at 11 am at the Sunset Chapel, Fairmount Memorial Park, 5200 W. Wellesley, Spokane. A short graveside service will follow and that evening at 6 PM, there will be additional prayers (shiva minyan) said for Jerry at the Spokane Veterans Home's Chapel, 222 East 5th Avenue, Spokane., He was born in Spokane on June 21, 1915 to Edward Cooper and Goldie Bramer Cooper. Gerald was the middle of three sons, all of whom enlisted in the United States military after the attack on Pearl Harbor. He served in England, France, and Germany attached to the 9th Air Force. During a bombing raid in London, his ear drum was punctured, and he permanently lost his hearing in his left ear., Passing high school chemistry was deemed sufficient for Jerry to be assigned to teach chemical warfare at Spokane's Geiger Field prior to being sent to Europe on the second Mauretania. He arrived at Omaha Beach at D-Day Plus Six. The following year, he was deputized to transport Hermann Goering, Adolf Hitler's designated successor, to Nuremberg, Germany. The former Nazi official was dressed in his military whites, but since the Allies needed to protect his identity en route to his final posting, Jerry put the Nazi Commander-in-Chief of the German Air Force in a dirty coal carrier for the trip., A founding member of Spokane's Temple Beth Shalom, Jerry was also a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, the American Legion, and the Musicians Union. Beginning at age 15, Jerry started working part-time at Western Union. The messengers competed mightily to deliver telegrams alerting "ladies of the night" of their upcoming work schedules in many of downtown Spokane's old hotels, as the "working girls" were known as the most generous tippers., Jerry worked in the clothing industry prior to and after the war. Eventually, he and his late younger brother, Bernard, opened Coopers Men's Shop on East Sprague. Later the brothers opened the Blue Lantern Tavern on North Division and upon selling the tavern 25 years later, he worked as a salesman at all the local Red Wing shoe stores for another 15 years., Not one to sit idle (after all, he installed his underground, automatic lawn sprinkler system all on his own), Jerry joined the Spokane Police Department's Senior Volunteer Program for five years. This volunteer work allowed Jerry to come full circle, as he used to sell uniforms to the police officers and do their tailoring when he owned his own shop decades earlier. Until recently, Jerry's treadle sewing machine still came in handy for minor clothing repairs., The Cooper sons were musical and at an early age, Jerry's dad acquired a drum set for his middle child. Not only did "Bud" play with his late older brother, Sydney, in their own dance band while in high school, he also played with various big bands in the greater Spokane region for more than 40 years. Many older Spokanites may remember Jerry playing at the Breezy Point at the State Line or playing for Louis Davenport in the famed hotel's Italian Gardens. In addition, Jerry played music with fellow soldiers during the war and one of the most precious photographs his daughter has of her father shows him playing the drums with his buddies at a Displaced Persons camp somewhere in Europe. Jerry was set to audition for one of Paul Whiteman's traveling bands when the war ended and he decided instead to come home., The story goes that Jerry told his future wife, Lorraine, that he was going to marry her on their first date. While living in Spokane, he was set up with a nice Jewish girl in Seattle (who hailed originally from Chicago) and their courtship was undoubtedly aided by the assistance of a friend's wife who was a long-distance telephone operator. While alchemists could change lead into gold, this good friend could make a 45-minute long distance phone call cost the same as a 5-minute long distance phone call. Lorraine and Jerry were married in June 1954, their only child, Nancy, arrived in July of 1955. Right up until Jerry died, he claimed Lorraine at 93 was still as beautiful as the day he married her., In addition to his wife Lorraine, Jerry is survived by his daughter, Nancy Cooper, and her husband, Rick Kustina, of Seattle. Additional family left to mourn "Uncle Bud" are his three nephews and their respective families: Steve Cooper of Portland, OR; Brian Cooper of Manassas, VA; and Michael Cooper of Washington, DC. Memorial contributions can be made to Hospice of Spokane (509-456-0438) or Temple Beth Shalom (509-747-3304). Special mention must be made of the professional and loving care he received from the Veterans Home medical and ancillary staff.

James Arthur MURPHY Age 78, born April 1, 1932, passed away January 20, 2011. Born in Yakima, the second son of Esther and James A. Murphy, Jim met his wife-to-be, Janet (McDonald), at the age of five in dance class. He graduated from Davis High and went on to Stanford University, where he studied accounting and law, played for the Varsity Water Polo team, and was President of the Fiji fraternity house. He and Janet married while Jim was attending Stanford Law School, then moved to Seattle in 1956. After passing both the California and Washington State Bar exams, Jim joined the law firm that would later become Ogden Murphy Wallace. He was elected President of the Washington State Association of Broadcasters in 1961 and held that position until his retirement in1988, when he was named Broadcaster of the Year. During his tenure with the WSAB, he became a nationally-recognized authority on the FCC, and authored several books on the subject. Also in the early 60's, Jim was named City Attorney of Edmonds, where, among other things, he helped create the Edmonds Underwater Park, believed to be the first municipally-owned underwater park in the U.S., and which today is a destination for divers from all over the world. Jim was the principal moving force to get broadcast microphones and cameras into Washington State courtrooms. In his career, Murphy tried over 300 cases, and had only three adverse jury verdicts. Jim had three children with Janet: Ron, Terri Gietzen (Daniel), and Tamara Nelson (Erik), and nine grandchildren. Dad instilled his love of the outdoors, especially snow skiing and Scuba diving, in all of his kids (resulting in 3rd generation divers). Winter weekends the family hit the slopes, while summer weekends were spent in the San Juan Islands, where Dad and friends built the cabin we cherished on Henry Island. We are so grateful for the San Juan legacy he and Mom provided for us and our families. An avid reader, Dad eschewed fiction for weightier stuff, especially history, current events, and just for fun, physics. He was a self-taught artist using oils and acrylics, and also had a passion for Asian cooking. He was a loyal Stanford fan and follower. Dad was a shining example of honor, dogged integrity and hard work, and anyone could go to him with any problem and know that he would help to sort it out. We will deeply miss his intelligence, his wise and measured counsel, his dry (and sometimes corny) sense of humor, his dimples, and his blue eyes. Jim was predeceased by his loving wife of 50 years, Janet, in 2005, and his beloved brother, Ron. The family wishes to thank the wonderful care Dad received at the Ida Culver Nursing Home. A Memorial Service will be held Wednesday, February 2nd, 2011 at 3:00 at the Community Christian Fellowship Church (CCF) at 615 Glen Street in Edmonds. Following the service will be a reception at the Edmonds Yacht Club, 326 Admiral Way. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the Edmonds Food Bank, or a charity of your choice.
