Frederick Wright Kimball

Frederick Wright KIMBALL Frederick Wright Kimball passed away peacefully on March 4, 2011, of complications from Parkinson's disease. He will be remembered by his loving family and many friends for his unfailing courtliness and his unflagging vigor and determination. Both in his successful business career and his personal relationships, he always sought the accommodation that left everyone feeling like a winner. Fred was born in Palo Alto, California on April 19, 1918 to Frances and Sherman Kimball. He was a prodigy violinist who won many state-wide competitions in California. He was first violinist with the Stanford University Symphony orchestra when he played beside his future bride, Alice James. He earned a BA and an MBA from Stanford and served in the US Navy and the Royal Canadian Air Force during World War II. His enthusiasm for the outdoors prompted him to take a position as Vice President of Finance with Puget Power, and move his family to Bellevue in 1956. While at Puget Power Fred became president of its subsidiary, Puget Western, and developed Andover Industrial Park in Tukwila as a pioneering project in private sector economic development. He subsequently went on to become Vice President of Finance at Heath Tecna, and was later a director at the McGrath Corporation. Despite his successful business career, Fred's primary focus was always on his family. Ever active, he was an avid fisherman, skier, sailor, and SCUBA diver as well as a private pilot. He was a certified ski instructor, competed in the Geary 18 fleet at Corinthian Yacht Club, and founded the Cozy Cove Sailing Fleet. Fred is survived by his loving wife of 65 years, Alice Marie James Kimball , and his adoring children, Frederick James Kimball of Seattle and Ann Marie Kimball (Keith Butler) of Seattle, Leslie Kimball Farris (Timothy Farris) of Bellingham, and Joan Kimball (Richard Stiff) of Bellingham, as well as his sister, Tappan Locke (Gardner Locke) of Joseph, Oregon.

Larry Questad Sr.

Larry became a believer and follower of Jesus Christ as a young adult. He was steadfast and loyal in his faith, and to his marriage, family and friends. He was an inspiration and a well of strength to his wife and family, especially during his two year battle with colon cancer. Monday evening he passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by all of his loved ones., He died as he lived his life; quietly and without fanfare. "Like a horse to the barn; Dad always was in a hurry to go home!" His family can now rest assured that he is at peace in his heavenly home., Larry was born in California in August of 1944 to Alfred and Inga Questad. He moved to Seattle, WA at the age of 1. There the family grew to include two brothers, Dale and Bruce, and one sister, Kathy (Conley)., The three Questad boys were quite adventurous and Larry's sense of humor and love of a good joke followed him thru life. As a teenager, Larry began working with his father in construction., When Larry was 19, he met the love of his life, Judy Anderson. Larry and Judy were married on October 2, 1965. Exactly one year later they were blest with their first son. It was around this time Larry began working in the Seattle shipyards. Baby number one was quickly followed by 3 more children over the next 4 years. The Larry Questad household was beginning to be very busy indeed!, When they were expecting baby number 5, in 1972, they moved to the Vancouver area and Larry began working in the home construction industry there. In 1980, Larry and Judy bought an old farm house with 9 acres in Ridgefield, WA where they would go on to raise their 11 kids. This is still the family home., Each of Larry's 5 sons followed him into the construction industry and became self-employed. In 1991, Larry began running jobs for his oldest son Mark's company, in Longview, WA. He worked there until he retired in 2009., Larry was always ready with a quiet word of encouragement for the struggling believer. In tough times friends and family knew they could depend on Larry to give a helping hand or words of wisdom. Larry's faith flourished at Vancouver Apostolic Lutheran Church where he developed a special friendship with Pastor Nathan Juntunen. He served on the church board for several years until his death. He will be missed by many there., Larry is survived by his wife of 45 years, Judy; their 11 children: Mark (Sandra), Larry (Emily), Tami (John) Marsolek, Tina (Artemio) Benitez, Wendy (Dan) Marsolek, Susan (Kevin) Karnes, David, Steven (Crystal), Diana (Shane) Benjamson, Carrie (Julio) Guardado, and Thomas; 51 grandchildren (and counting...); his brothers, Dale and Bruce; his sister, Kathy Conley; in-laws, aunts, uncles, many cousins and nieces and nephews., There will be a funeral service held at Hockinson Apostolic Lutheran Church, 16108 NE 192nd Ave., Brush Prairie, WA, 98606, Sunday, March 13th at 3:00 p.m., viewing to begin at 2:30., Please sign the Guest Book at
