Caleb Alden Crull

Caleb Alden Crull was born on July 16, 1959 in San Diego, CA to Betty Jo and Alden Crull. He was born the third of five children. As a child Caleb was cheerful and sweet and like most boys, always up to mischief. He acquired a nickname from his older brother Mark, --Pearhead', which stuck with him through the years. After receiving his GED, Caleb went into the grocery business for a while, but later found that it was the car business that he loved. He was a longstanding businessman in the car sales industry. In October of 2002 Caleb's life took a life altering turn. He became very ill and was hospitalized in West Virginia. He was blind for three days and had a double stroke that affected his ocular nerves. He eventually received his center vision back but permanently lost his peripheral vision. Caleb realized that his life would never be the same, but through his faith in God and the support of his family he began a new journey that brought him closer to his family than ever before. Caleb never complained about his situation and took a proactive role in bettering his life, health and community. While volunteering at a center in West Central Spokane he met the love of his life, Lori. He was amazed by this beautiful woman who had a kind nature and caring heart for underprivileged people of Spokane. Together they joined forces and were married in 2005. Their ministry was powerful in the form of the opening of Little Lambs Child Care. Not only did they provide childcare but they gave out hundreds of backpacks, free haircuts and games with prizes galore. Caleb and Lori began to attend All Nations Christian Church and quickly sensed that it was a place of sincere worship and service to our Lord. Pastor Schott gravitated towards Caleb and they became fast friends. Caleb's personality was beyond compare; he was gregarious, funny and larger than life. Caleb entered into rest peacefully at home on March 29, 2011. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him. Caleb is survived by his loving wife Lori; children Melissa, Gideon, Samantha, Randy; grandson Elijah; sisters Karen Miller, Julie (Dan) Powell; brother Mark Neal; sister-in-law Leslie (Jerry) Radebaugh; brother-in-law Mark (Laura) Presting, nephews Travis, Austin, Jordan, Ernie and Matthew; nieces Crystal, Katrina and Mattie; and his faithful companion his dog Sydney. A celebration of Caleb's life will be held on Monday, April 4, 2011 at 11:00am at All Nations Christian Center, 1827 East Pacific Avenue Spokane, WA 99202. Donations may be made to the Lilac Blind Foundation, 1212 North Howard Street, Spokane, WA 99201.

James R. Joelson

James R. JOELSON March 27, 1934 ~ March 28, 2011 My dad did not want an obituary, but I told him it was not for him. He loved living, as long as he could eat too much, drink too much, talk too much, read, write and make love. I'm sure he talked death to death before finally letting go. When the cancer made it impossible for him to do those things, he was ready to die. He was a good man, autodidact, writer, speaker, advocate, a good friend, a good father, grandfather and great-grandfather.

THORMAN ELM MOEN

Thorman Elm MOEN Age 81, passed away March 27, 2011. Thorman was born to parents Alfred and Maren Moen, who left their homeland of Norway for a better life for their family. They ended up settling first in Vang, North Dakota, where Thorman was born December 21, 1929, the youngest of 6 children. Times were extremely difficult for everyone, but they did the best with what they had farming and owning a general store. They suffered through harsh winters and blistering summers, finally deciding to head west, landing in the town of Ballard, when Thorman was 8. He attended Whittier Elementary, James Monroe Jr. High, and was a Ballard High School graduate. He was an excellent athlete, lettering in football and baseball. After high school Thorman began working in the lumber mills, not fishing like the majority of people in Ballard. In 1958, he married Thora Barth, along with her three children and they completed their family with two more children of their own. One day in 1957, Thorman came across an ad in the newspaper that read "now accepting applications for registration for longshoremen". He sent an application in and much to his surprise was accepted. He always said getting that job was like winning the lottery. He was a longshoreman for 35 years, working his way up the ranks, retiring as a foreman in 1991. After retirement he liked to play golf, enjoy time with his family and his favorite hobby was maintaining his Stanwood farm. He loved to walk the fence line with his cows by his side. Thorman was well respected as a worker, a humanitarian, a parent, grandparent and great grandparent. He will be deeply missed by children Larry Moen (Lisa), Cyndi Justice (John), Mark Barth (Nancy Jewett), Mike Barth (Mary), Debbie Barth, grandchildren, Trevyr, Kyanna, Chantz, Logan, Lauren, Bridgett (Anthony), Amy, Liza, Brandon, Brittany, and great grandchildren, Zack, Jasmine, Annabella, Donovan, and Emma, and former wife Thora.
