I am just now finding out about the passing of Steve Tichenor. God speed old friend. Steve is also survived by his first wife Patricia Ostrom of Champaign Illinois. We all met Steve shortly after he arrived in Oregon in the summer of ‘72 with another friend from Oregon he met while stationed in Texas with the USAF. Steve became our bands mechanic, tech guru and around Mr. Fixit. Zany and larger than life with a sharp sense of humor and always up for a party. For ten years we all lived the life of rock&roll outlaws, misfits, international “importers” and general pranksters. It was a great ride and like all such things came to an end too soon when most of us drifters off to our own corners. Lost all track of Steve for almost thirty years for which i am most sad. I hope someone posts up when the celebration of his life will be happening. Rest easy old friend. See you on the other side.

Steve was an incredibly positive, dynamic spirit amongst the people he called his friends and I was honored to be counted as one of them. We shared a relatively short period of our lives together, maybe ten years all told, but he extended his generosity to me on many, many occasions, the most selfless being the repair of my first car after a nightmarish road trip on snow and ice coming home from a gig in Madras with my rock band. I learned how car axles were replaced and what happens when a wheel bearing goes out and you're far from home! He did this in the driveway of my parents home, an operation that took several hours and asked for not a penny from me in recompense, instead encouraging me to keep playing music, a promise I made to him then and have continued without stopping all these 50 years later. The memory of his big heart and love of music will stay with me always, but especially his always positive go-get 'em attitude which lifted me up so many times as a very young man trying to navigate adulthood. I will miss him dearly and treasure his memory! God Bless you, Steve!

Paul was such a wonderful friend to cats! His generous support helped save and improve the lives of many cats, as well as the people who came to love them. In our conversations with Paul and John, their dedication to their personal cats was also every-apparent. Emily and Ennis, the cats Paul and John lived with while we knew them, were very lucky indeed. We are grateful for the time we were able to spend with Paul and John together, and even to have "met" Ennis during a video Happy Hour.

Norm was both a mentor and an inspiration to me as both a young, and not so young lawyer. I will never forget his advice and kindness.

A mother never forgets those who offer support and acceptance of their child. This is what Susie meant to our family - support and friendship. From our first meeting at Chehalem Elementary, she became an advocate for our son. Time went on, we stayed in contact and the events we shared together always were teaching moments - the art of living life. How precious are our memories of this wonderful lady. We were honored to be in attendance Friday. We pray for comfort for Tom, Joel and Emilie and family.

Sending you lots of big hugs, Cheryl. You were certainly "the rock" for your mom the past 10 years since Darryl's death. She was so lucky — and very grateful we're sure — to have had your continual caring and attention. ❤️ Lynn & Tom

I second what Mike says. Aunt Lucille was just the best. She laughed and visited with us. My trip to see her and Uncle Irv in 1987 was so fun.

Aunt Lucille was one of a kind and will be missed by so many. Condolences to her family, especially to Lisa and Gareth. I always cherished our time with Lucille. I loved that she kept all the pictures we and others sent her on her wall as you walked in the door. I remember mt son crawling on her living room floor and giving me the biggest smiles. Lucille was atrue gem. Miss you Lucille!

Five years today, I still think of you and how much good you did, how much more time you deserved. I love you forever

 

Susan R LeMaster posted on 4/20/22

My treasured time with Susie was during the early pandemic when she needed companionship and a bit of direction. It was not easy to find the need behind her bright presence, ready conversation, quick recall, enthusiasm and big laugh. I found her hook in dropping a Yiddish word in the conversation, often unsure if I was using it correctly, and if not, she was sure to put it in context. Only in hearing of her full life can I measure how much was impacted by dementia, Susie remained curious and elegant, lipstick and all. To Susie, Tom and family ~ Yehi zicha baruch.

What a great lady our Aunt Lucille was! Her parents both born in the 19th century, and she survived well into the 21st. She was our link to the past. She was smart as a whip. She was so good to our mom, her niece. They weren't that far apart in age. They could both talk into the wee hours. She was a Ketcher: when they loved you, you knew it. Condolences to Lisa and Gareth and their families.

Bobbie, I know that you will be truly missed by your family. Walk alongside them while they are trying to come to terms with the fact that you will not be here with them. I know that there are many of us who will cherish the memories that you have left with us. May you rest in peace. Leave some dimes and pennies so they know you are with them and dropping the Pennies from Heaven. Also if one of them has a smart mouth could you possibly make them trip. You were always fun to be around I enjoyed so many events with you. Those things I will miss and keep cherished. Always and forever your legacy will live on.

Pat Gaddis... she was an unforgettable lady and friend to many of her children's friends. Pat was like a second mom to many of us who were fortunate to have spent time in the Gaddis household. Godspeed Pat, you will long be remembered, and missed.

 

Bob williams posted on 1/18/22

Pat Gaddis was one of the few people i've met who was thoroughly interesting. My mind never wandered even after hours of listening to her memories. Maybe it was because she remained interested, without any rote, in what she was saying--it stayed live for her, not totally past. Faulkner said, "The past is not dead. It is not even past." She didn't take me back as much as bringing events forward so we shared a layered present. Pat Gaddis stayed a girl her whole life. Thanks be to Big Bob who provided the love and understading to support this and make the miracle of Pat Gaddis possible, REAL, enduring.

 

Craig Kelly posted on 1/18/22

Pat Gaddis was one of my favorite people. She was a lovely woman who always had time for everyone, and my life is better for knowing her. One of the world's brightest lights has gone dim. God bless and God speed, Patricia.

Pat was a member of Portland Collectors Club (originally Glass Club). She always had interesting things to share for every program at our meetings. She loved showing her collections at both of her homes. And we all learned from her knowledge. She was a treasure and will be missed.

I knew Pat from Russellville. My mother was there at the same time (she passed in Oct). And we got to watch Pat give a show and tell presentation of her hats, and some of her other favorite pieces of her collection. After that, I always greeted her and chatted. I thought her a wonderful, cheerful, kind woman! May God continue to Bless her! With my condolences - Nancy

So sorry to hear of Pats passing. She was one of my mom and dads favorite people.

To Amy's friends and family: I know our words may not quell the grief you're experiencing, but I hope you can find some comfort knowing how much of a powerful impact she made on so many lives. Amy's smile is forever burned in our minds . . . serves as a good reminder to speak up for those who have been minoritized and marginalized and to love as hard as your spirits allow. Amy's light shone so brightly; I know she'll continue to inspire and she won't be forgotten. My heart is with you all as you grieve.

 

Harlan Petrowski posted on 12/23/21

Amy was just, so bright. Her smile, her laugh, her personality. When you talked to her, you felt like the most important thing in the world. She only wanted the best for everyone, such a loving soul. To her family, thank you for sharing her with us. I will always remember her and cherish the memories and the countless laughs we shared.

 

Ayrica Bennett posted on 12/23/21

Amy was light, laughter and a true joy to be around. This is such a loss to so many people that her life touched, including mine. To friends and family, please accept my deepest condolences. May her memory be a blessing.

 

Grace Bradley posted on 12/23/21

I met Amy in 2010 after my world had been turned upside down by personal tragedy, and I was just a shell of myself. Amy saw I needed a friend, and she really helped bring back to life. She had a way of making those around her feel seen, included, valued for their uniqueness and idiosyncrasies. Her sense of humor was second to none. Her passionate advocacy inspired me and helped shape me personally and professionally. I want to offer my most heartfelt condolences to Amy's family - and I want you to know how much she meant to me and to so many others. She was a bright light and I am so grateful to have been lucky enough to know her.

Maxine Williams posted on 12/23/21

I wanted to send my sincere condolences and share a few words. Truth is, I don’t know much by way of churches or funeral homes. I always thought the outdoors are God’s greatest cathedral where one might venture out in an effort to look in. Which, perhaps, is why on this day I found myself walking outside beside a river, in the snow, when my thoughts naturally found their way to Amy. There was nothing ever subtle about Amy. Striking wit, voice, laughter and smile. She wore many emotions on her sleeve along with some beautiful ink. To me, that’s just who she is. I knew Amy from a brief snapshot of time when attending nursing school and thereafter as she helped me secure my first job. She is a true badass—doesn’t mince her words—and has the conviction and passion to do whatever is necessary for the best outcome of her patients and her friends. With the outpouring of love it’s clear that those who have known her feel a devastating loss…collectively shedding ribbons of tears that now link into rivers providing exposure to depths which would otherwise go unseen. The tapestry they paint are a marvel for good reason—one may only think of the Grand Canyon to take in the full effect. Yet some grief, like a river, is so expansive that it can not be waded across but rather walked beside. So, I’ll walk beside this for now and remember the incredible spirit of the person who is a reprieve to many—patients, family and friends alike; has the fortitude not to take shit from anyone; and who embodies a love which will ricochet in the chasms of our hearts a little longer than always. You are missed but not forgotten, Amy.

Amy was an amazing person. I am grateful I was able to connect with her as a friend and coworker. She is missed. So sorry to her other friends and family who are grieving.

 

 

Arlene Danschin posted on 12/23/21

Close to a year ago I experienced the death of a young patient during the Pandemic. I felt awful and was riddled with everything that went wrong during that situation. Amy gave me a hug and reminded me that I did everything I could for the patient--her support helped me cope with that patient's death. I will miss Amy and will always carry these beautiful memories with me.

 

Beckie Menten posted on 12/22/21

Amy’s incredible beautiful smile will always be burned in my mind. She was always the warmest, friendliest, funnest girl around - not to mention her great style. She deserved many more years and there is no condolence for this loss. I will treasure her memory and be richer for having known her.

 

Sara Catabay posted on 12/22/21

I am so sorry for your loss and all of our loss. Amy was such a bright light. We met thru Shriners on our weekly visits for our son Gabriel's infusions. We all laughed so much together making our time much more enjoyable. She had a way with kiddos and was easily one of our sons favorite nurses. We are so devestated we will never see you again. But we will always remember your smile and beautiful soul.

 

Lynnette Bartels posted on 12/22/21

My son and I got the chance to know Amy over the last two years at the hospital during our visits. She always was willing to talk to Jacob about Anime and always had treats for Dapple. I am so very sorry for your loss and she will be greatly missed by everyone who met her.

 

Tana Dickson posted on 12/22/21

To Amy's friends and family, I am so sorry for your loss. I did not know Amy very well, but liked her immediately. She was such a great nurse and her patients were lucky to have her. She was the kind of person you wanted to be around and I wish I had gotten to work with her more than I did.

 

Maggie Gould posted on 12/22/21

To Amy's family and those closest to her, I am deeply sorry for your loss. Amy was brilliant, beautiful, and an absolute joy to work with here at Shriners.

Oh, Steve! My dear, dear friend of my heart. You were the kindest friend I've known. You with your beautiful soul, your giving heart, all ready to help wherever you could. You and your goofy jokes, your big ol hugs, and all the raucous laughter we shared. . We were a little crazy. Times with you made every day spent with you perfect. I have all these memories... and I'm sure going to miss you like crazy! You were one of a kind! One day, I'll see you again and I know you'll be there with arms outstretched and laughing.

Tandi ( Hylland) Thorpe posted on 11/21/21

I was saddened to read that Lesley passed away. I met Lesley at Our Lady of Sorrows in Portland. Lesley was the beautiful girl in school that all the girls were jealous of. She was beautiful, kind, and befriended this fat ugly, Awkward girl that came into the school. That girl was me. Lesley shopped at Nordstrom's; I shopped at Fred Meyers. She never made me feel I was below her. Yes, she introduced me to “Queen.” The posters of Queen and Freddie Mercury cover a wall in her room; she loved Freddie. One time Lesley and I went into Fred Meyers and stole “ Sally Hansen's press on nails, “ We were convinced would-be caught. When we got outside, we threw the nails away in the garbage and ran home. Lesley and I remained friends off and on Throughout our teenage years. Lesley was the first person I confided in about the abuse I was going through living with my mother. As time went by, she and her mother (Fran) helped me and my brother get away from the abusive home we lived in. Fran (Lesley’s mom) was a special lady, kind and beautiful. That apple didn't fall far from the tree. I ended up going to live with my father in Washington. Lesley came up to visit me several times. I would go and call Lesley in Oregon. I ended up moving back to Oregon with my mother. It was the summer between our freshman and sophomore years. Lesley told me, “don't do it” ( she told me even though she would love to have me back in Oregon, please don't move back to your mother's). Lesley was that caring person that would tell you how she felt but would never tell you, “I told you.” I found my strength after living with my father and stepmom. The ugly duckling became a swan. It didn't work living with my mother; I left her house when I was fifteen and moved in with my boyfriend. Of course, Lesley was there through everything. We lost touch through the years. I didn't see Lesley again until 1988. I was shopping at a mall in Oregon City with my baby boy Benjamin. Do you know that feeling that someone is watching you? This lady was staring at me from another store across the walkway (the stores had all glass). She would glance at me and look away. Of course, I stared at her the whole time. I took my baby, and I was going to confront this chick. Yes, it was Lesley Fouche. We laughed, she said, “ I knew it was you, Tandi, only you would keep staring). Lesley was still beautiful and kind. She invited me to her sister Robin’s wedding. Lesley would continue our friendship like time hadn't passed. I attended Robin’s wedding. Robin was just as beautiful and kind, loving as her Little sister Lesley. Lesley had me sit in front to the left of the Church. I felt so uncomfortable; it had been years since I had seen the family. I couldn't wait to get out of there. I felt uncomfortable because I couldn't tell Lesley how horrible my Relationship was; I sank fast. Lesley never knew how people could watch her and see her strength. Her beauty wasn't just the outside. Her beauty was her whole being. After seeing Lesley, I got my strength back. I moved back to Washington. I found a wonderful man and have been married for 31 years. Lesley and I found each other when she moved to Kansas City, MO. We had talked a couple of times. Throughout the years, I would look up Lesley. As I would expect, she was living her life. Lesley had her way of touching people, not always in words. Most of the time, it was that look; she tilted her head and smiled. Her eyes would go through you, and she knew what you needed. Lesley Fouche Jackson Definitely left her mark on this world.

I had the pleasure of being Dean of the College of the Pacific during the latter part of the service Robert and his wife Janine provide us all. They embodied the ideal of the educated and cultural aware person the College hoped to graduate. They saw language as the gateway to the refective life and provided a host of ways for students to become language learners. While they contributed to scholarship in their field and to the life of the College and University, their first concern was their students. They were able to convert several generations of undergraduates to the importance of language and culture despite the social and administrative upheavals of the times. They have been long remembered at Pacific and contributed to the image of the school as a sanctuary for liberal learning. I am also aware of the positive home environment they provided for their sons. Their footprints endure generation to generation.

I really enjoyed working with Ernest in my younger years as a kitchen manager for the Kopper Kitchen restaurant chain. I worked at many of their locations, and Ernest and I got along famously. He was always happy to see me and had a great sense of humor. I left the company in 1981 to work for Frito-Lay.

So sorry to learn of this. I’m going to miss making him those meals and leaving them all wrapped up for him with some treats. Him saying, “Oh Fred, what a treat!” Love and Condolences to his family.

I will hold in my heart the memory of Joshua. He was always so kind and polite. He seemed to deeply care for the people he surrounded himself with. We will not forget him. I hope the beautiful memories of his life bring you healing and peace.

Clark County Food Bank was a beneficiary of the beautiful life of Marilyn Cameron. With her husband Gerry, the Camerons were generous and caring, wanting to make sure that the people in our community were taken care of and helped. We appreciate the beautiful tribute that was written here and have good memory of Marilyn’s graceful and true beauty, the delightful sense of humor, and the sparkle and joy she brought to every situation. Many thousands of people in our community were helped and served because of Marilyn’s desire to give. The hungry have been fed, and this life is the reason why. You will be missed, but your legacy lives!

My favorite memories of Aunt Marilyn and Uncle Gerry was when they would take me out for our birthdays. It was so sweet of them but because Gerry and I shared birthdays it was extra special.

 

Kelly Medici posted on 9/30/21

One of many lovely memories I have of Marilyn was the occasion of her 40th birthday. Mr C, as I called him, had put extremely large lawn signs in the neighbors yards so any drivers approaching the house could read the message GUESS WHO’S FORTY! With a prominent arrow pointing to the Cameron home. Marilyn was slightly embarrassed but pleased as well with the attention and good wishes she received from all. It was a beautiful and fun party that I was lucky to attend as a friend of her daughter Susan. I can still see Marilyn’s face at the unexpected arrival of a dear old friend she hadn’t seen in ages. She will be missed by everyone who knew her. Much love to all her family.

 

Jeanne Gibbons posted on 9/29/21

In reading this most beautiful, heartfelt and loving tribute to Kevin, I am moved by the richness of the experiences of him by those who knew him best, and by his legacy of love in having donated bone marrow to his brother, Jake. I will never forget, Cathy, the day you discovered that Kevin was a match for Jake. Were it not for his selfless, lifesaving gift, there might not be the three beautiful children who have added so much love and happiness to your extraordinary family. May Kevin Rest In Peace, and may you and all his loved ones find comfort and peace in memories and fellowship.

Heartbroken to hear of the passing of this terrific young man with the infectious smile. Our memories or Kevin are all fun - Halloween humor as a River Vale teen, snowboarding/ski trips to Lake Tahoe and Vermont (where, always unique, he opted for lasagna over pancakes with real maple syrup for breakfast), backyard BBQs and many more. Although we have not had the pleasure of seeing him for many years, but will fondly remember all the times we enjoyed with him and his wonderful family. God Bless him in his eternal rest, and God Bless his family who have to deal with this great loss.

I met Kevin when he was a colicky infant - but when he stopped crying, his gorgeous eyes, his smile and his cute cowlick made you forget that he ever cried! I had the opportunity to meet up with Kevin a number of times over the years. There was no crying when we got together - only smiles, laughs and his urge to share his favourite. eateries. Kevin was generous with whatever he had - and the courage that he mustered to get on a plane and donate stem cells was astounding! He showed me courage that I rarely get to see. When I get into a hard spot and have to muster up courage, he is one of my sources of strength.

Dr. Cogan was my first dentist when I moved to Portland in 1971. He was not only an outstanding dentist but a wonderful and kind human being. His memory is indeed a blessing.

 

Dennis Keenan posted on 9/16/21

It was a blessing and joy to work with Gerry when he created Willamette Dental Group, and when I was with Cascade Health Care. He was a real leader and innovator. Also, he took good care of my teeth for many years, and I enjoyed his wonderful sense of humor. May God rest his soul.

Dr Gerald Cogan was a tireless and passionate advocate for protecting our constitutional rights and freedoms. He was a steadfast supporter of the ACLU and the Democratic Party. Please re-read the Preamble to the US Constitution. He was devoted to the ideals of our country, and was writing a book based on the Preamble. He was a man who took to heart the admonition of the prophet to love justice and mercy and walk humbly with the Eternal. He will be missed.

We are so thankful to have spent time with Ed, especially after Margaret passed away, when he shared stories about growing up on a farm, when the family dog saved his life at a very young age, and some of his memories of being part of the Normandy Invasion and being recruited to drive General Patton around periodically. Many of these visits were over breakfast at Elmer's or later at the house with the hospitality of his family or in front of our house, visiting with Debora and Ed on their way home from a scenic drive. We will miss you dear friend!!!

 

Sharon Eberdt posted on 9/6/21

Debbie, Barbara, and Steve, It's hard to believe your dad is gone. It truly feels like the end of an era! I never knew he had served overseas in WWII. As a child it never occurred to me to ask. My memories of Ed are from childhood, when we lived directly behind the Doells on the same block in North Portland. We attended the same church, and Debbie and I were in the same class in school. My dad and Ed took turns, week by week, patiently driving us kids to school in the mornings. If I remember rightly, Ed drove a Mustang in the 60's? The memories that make me smile the most: Ed and his beloved Chihuahuas. Ed carrying puppy Mindy around in his shirt pocket. Ed racing outside at night in his bathrobe to rescue Cindy when she tangled with a raccoon (he actually grabbed the raccoon and flung it across the yard!) He really loved those dogs! Debbie, it meant so much to us that you and Ed came to my mom's funeral. If I had known in time, I would have been there at your dad's service. My condolences on your loss.

To the Aigner family. My name is Steve Doell. I did not know Les. I was reading his obituary last night. It is just above my dad’s on the Holman Funeral Service website.

The two longest road trips in my life were driving from Portland to Vegas with friends and from Portland to the beach with Great Grandpa. If you’ve ever driven with Grandpa you know that the Vegas trip was faster. Aside from driving incredibly safe, it was the air he wanted to breathe, the scenery he wanted to see, when we arrived it was the crashing waves he wanted to hear but most importantly the time with his loved ones he cherished most. I was certainly not appreciative of such a life lesson at that young age yet as I grow older, it’s a lesson which has stuck with me as I continue to learn how to enjoy time as he did. For that, I am forever grateful. Thank you Grandpa <3

I first met Cherie as a young girl and remember her as a warm, loving person with an exciting "waterfall laugh." Cherie always had a smile for all of the Camp Fire Girls. In 2004 it was Cherie I turned to for help finding a new home in the tender months after my divorce. She was professional, an good advocate for me in the purchasing process, and as warm and welcoming as ever. Cherie understood it was a tough time for me, and she took me under her wing. I am privileged to have known her. Tears and hugs to the family.

I was blessed to have met my cousin Cherie during my college years back in the mid 60's, Cherie and daughter Kristie, came to Montana on a vacation to visit relatives and to see our area of Montana. They seemed so happy and joyful that I wrote to thank them for their visit upon their return back home. Thus, a wonderful family friendship had started. As I look back in remembrance of Cherie, I think of how meaningful and encouraging she was along my life's journey. What a wonderful,caring lady Cherie was to me and to others that she touched. Unforgetable were the family ski trips to Mount Hood, the exciting salmon fishing trips on the mouth of the Columbia, River and the enchantment of the trip through Oregon's Lava Cast Forest. I will always remember Cherie as one of the "shining stars" to my life. May Cherie's wonderful family and friends hold memories of her deeply and tightly within their hearts. Thank you, Cherie, may you rest in peace. . .

My Mother's brother Pat,I will hear his laugh for always.When I think of Uncle Pat I think about Family, that is what mattered most to him and what he was best at his immediate family.The original bunch Harry ,Dot and the 5 kids Dee,Barbara,Sonny,Pat and Mike had always been a unique and interesting family, many of us saw each other very seldom if at all outside the immediate bunch but that being said, know who we are and stand close together with the love and respect for our family.I treasure the stories I hold from mom all the way back to Ginny,I treasure the moments shared and the memories I have.I remember they lived and did the best they could with the time allowed.It seems fishing and painting,family, and Shelley mostly come to mind when I think of Uncle Pat.The sorrow is always with us it never can be comforted we just come to accept the things that we cannot change.There are no words deep enough , strong enough, or correct enough to convey how huge a void this is and that I understand and feel this with you it surfaces many memories and people .I regret your loss, I regret your sorrow, pain , and emptiness.Live for him, through him, and with him ,he's not here but he's not gone.He's around.I wish for all of you a sense of calm.

I could write on and on but doing so would be writing about me. I think I;ll keep both of us in my memories.

 

Guerry Dean posted on 3/30/21

In the years that Ray and I were friends, he has proven to be an inspiration, a nimble and well informed debate partner, an adventures mate, and a lot of laughs. The first time we met, during a weekend at a small cabin in the Columbia Gorge, Ray regaled us with his boyhood adventures at a horse riding camp. The story was falling down hilarious when he told it the first time and has been a humorous memory many times since. That was only the first time, over subsequent years, Ray told riveting stories of furnace fires, disappearing bar patrons, firearm mishaps, overseas travels, small town recollections, and prisoner custody stories. During our own adventures, Ray proved to be a gifted conversationalist, able to connect with random strangers in ways that I admired and came to emulate. His social skills broadened my world and introduced me to people and places I never would have known about. An avid bicyclist, Ray took me to unfamiliar biking trails that have since become my favorite places to ride. He joined Cycle Oregon and rode around the state well into his late 70s. He was an amazing athlete and carried his abilities with modesty and grace. His accomplishments were something I dreamed about but never matched, and remain something I look upon with deep respect. When relaxing under less demanding circumstances, Ray proved to be a thoughtful and knowledgeable conversationalist. Topics ranged from ancient history, to past wars, current political challenges, and economic ramifications for policies relating to local and national settings. He was insightful and always offered perspectives that were thought provoking. In so many ways, life without Ray will be a lot less fun, less challenging, and too boring. He brought a fresh light to the world and a smile to everyone around him. It won’t be the same without Ray, but its a better world because of him.

We met Ray in 2015, when we bought a condo down the hall from Beth and Ray. At first we were part-timers at the condo, and we always looked forward to seeing Beth and Ray. Ray was so much fun to be with. He told great stories, and he had a wonderful sense of humor. We enjoyed going places with them, sharing dinners, and going to demonstrations together. When we moved in full-time last summer, we were so glad to have them as full-time close neighbors and friends. He was a terrific athlete and good sport; I remember seeing him in the hall with his bike and helmet, and I remember that he was among the first to "take the plunge" when Poet's Beach first opened for river swimming. Later, as he came up against physical limitations, I would run into him in the hall on his scooter with Shayna, as he found "workaround" methods of staying active and involved and positive. He met the challenges of cancer with incredible courage, grace, and positivity. I so miss his warmth, humor, conversation, and kindness already, and I'm grateful we had a chance to get to know him.

We met Ray and Beth (and of course Shayna) in the fall of 2015 when we moved to RiverPlace. Besides the friendly greetings of neighbors, we've helped each other with animal care, visited in each others condos where Ray, Beth, and Shayna welcomed our dog, Marlon Brando. Even though Marlon, without invitation, helped himself to Shayna's toys. We have shared meals, adult beverages, movies, a protest march or two, and a lot of great conversation. I was fortunate enough to be in their Arts and Culture Book Group where many great conversations took place. I think what I will miss the most about Ray are the wonderful conversations and the unfailingly warm and friendly greetings he offered. He added to our RiverPlace community and he will be missed.

I meet Ray for the first time when I moved into my condo at RiverPlace in 2018. He was the first person to introduce himself to me and also introduced his dog, Shayna. He was quite distinctive as he was wearing a hat that was very similar to the one worn by my boyfriend in college. Not long after, I met his wife Beth. Seeing Ray and Shayna in the hallway or walking along the esplanade was always a pleasure and as I introduced him to my friends he would always include introductions to Shayna. He was delight to know and I shall miss him.

The last time I seen her was when I came to her door after new year 2021 and she came to door and was wearing a mask and said she was sick and on oxygen and couldn't visit with me. My condolences to her family. I'm in shock. My sister just called me and said that she heard Alice passed weeks ago and never knew. I wish I would've seen her that day but due to covid, that wasn't feasible. She was so sweet and and may her rest in peace. God bless you Ms. Alice. Love and miss you.

He showed me in countless ways how to get so frustrated that I want to throw something lol! He also had a great deal of patience with me ( he needed it) and never held a grudge. He was spontaneous, fun and a Rock n Roll star that came with other names ;Chaps, Chief Run Amock and the other slips my mind at this moment.

I had the good fortune to be a neighbor of Steve and Linda for many years, and can still see Steve's smile and hear the joy in his laugh. Like a diamond with many facets, Steve's love of so much in life was evident by how he embraced so many aspects of it such as travel, cooking, gardening, the arts, music and on and on. But the aspect I witnessed the most was his great love of music, including the Blues. Time after time I would see Steve and Linda at great Blues concerts at big and small venues, often to see groups that only those "in the know" would recognize. Steve's knowledge and love of music was tremendous, and the last time I sat next to him was on a neighbor's lawn to hear a "Covid safe" concert. As always he was smiling and laughing, which is how I will always remember him. I salute your spirit Steve. You will be missed by many.

Many a summers were spent with my dear Bam Bam out in the forest camping away. Camp fires, sticky fingers, and cherished memories in my heart. When Grandparents Day came around at school-- there was only one person I wanted to attend with me; my dear Bam Bam. It wasn't far for her, just across the playground. And, I always felt comforted knowing she was so close.

Alice and I were neighbors for 43 years. We shared many good visits during that time. I have spent hours at her kitchen table and in her garage sitting room, swapping stories and giving and getting neighborhood updates. Years ago she used to come and pick my Concord grapes, to make her famous grape jelly. When getting on a ladder was no longer a good idea, I would pick the grapes and take them to her and she continued to make jelly. The last few years, I have taken her the jelly I made. She was a huge fan of grape jelly and finally convinced me that it really is good. In her ceramic days, she made me a Christmas Wreath photo holder and put a photo of my then, 2 year old in it. It comes out every year and hangs on my tree. It is my most cherished tree ornament. I could tell stories for days and I am left with many great memories of an incredible woman. Alice will be missed by many and I am one of them.

It was just over seven years ago that I was lucky enough to have met Stephen. I can only imagine that during his years as a teacher he perfected his curiosity. I never minded all his questions, it just reminded me that I too often did not have the answers that I should have known ! Stephen never stopped learning. He and Linda were such a beautiful couple to be around. His reliability and dedication to everything he did in life was admirable. I miss greatly his smile, his congeniality, his sincerity. Although his absence has created a void in life for all of us that knew him he has departed leaving us with only positive memories to be cherished forever.

Met Stephen and Linda when we first moved to Portland in 1988 and became fast friends ever since. Enjoyed many things with them, and through them with many others - kayaking, hiking, music, and especially eating. What joy. I cannot remember ever seeing him without a smile on his face except when he was absorbed in a project (woodworking, cooking) when he would just hum away a monotone note for minutes on end clearly enjoying himself and his work. Always made me smile. Oh how I will miss him.

Utterly heartbroken at the loss of my uncle. I still remember when I visited as a little kid, and Uncle Steve would sneak me out to get junk food that my parents would not let me have.

You will be missed like crazy, and remembered every time I search out a tasty dining establishment.

I first me Ben as a third-year student at OHIO University. He had transferred from Everett Community College where he learned basic and intermediate photography from Lloyd Weller. He was a curious, giving and eager young talent ready to learn more about visual journalism. When he returned to OHIO years later for his advanced degree, he was a working professional ready to take his skills to the next level. He was a talented photographer, a solid picture editor and most importantly a friend. When his work at the Oregonian can to an end, he found a way to help others, sometimes with a camera but often with a smile and a story about living with diabetes. Ben was part of a significant era in photojournalism in Biddeford Maine. I have a box of miniature Biddeford picture pages that he and the Biddeford photographic team produced in the paper’s “golden era.” He made them for me to use as a teaching tool at OHIO in the School of Visual Communication. They are a treasured archive of their work. My condolences to Ming and Zanzan. Ben Brink you were a friend to so many people and an eager visual storyteller. Rest in Peace my friend.

Ben was a stand-up guy and a good friend ever since we worked together (and shared an apartment) in Biddeford, Maine. We bonded immediately over our mutual struggles with Type I diabetes. He introduced me to my future wife, Anne. He really was curious about anything and everything. As recently as last week he was exploring the idea of what is Truth in a photograph. He's probably cross-examining Eugene Smith right now on what lenses he used to shoot Minamata, one of his favorite photo essays. My condolences to Ming and Zanzan on his loss.

Grace was such a special lady in my life. Our son, Michael, was a friend of her son, John. I remember so many talks with Grace, listening to her wisdom and admiring her beautiful spirit. Grace left a mark on so many lives. I wish I could think of the woman’s name who rode her bike all around and wore a jacket that read, ‘Friend of all animal’s’ on the back of it. Grace loved her and took care of many of her needs. (Even making sure she had an occasional shower.) I don’t remember Grace without a smile on her beautiful face. I loved her. She loved me. I can see her now as she finally looks upon the face of her Savior who made her who she was. Goodbye for now sweet Grace. ♥️

John Chin was a very kind and nice man, and it was a pleasure to be his attorney for many years, in Manchester, New Hampshire, where he was a fixture. He was always interesting and had many legal issues resulting from running a successful restaurant.

My condolences to his family, but appreciate his long and eventful life. Brad Cook

I was born in 1980 in Goffstown, NH. I grew up going to Wa Toy regularly with my family. While John was always there to greet every customer who walked in, what always astounded me, was that he knew everyone by name. He knew the regulars and he knew their orders. At the end of 1998, I was getting ready to head off to college, moving out of state for the coming years, and so I wanted my send-off meal to be at my favorite restaurant. When John, and one of his long time staff members, Debbie, found out that I was moving away for a bit they came out and sat with my family and I after we finished our meals. As we were getting ready to leave, John came out with a large to-go box. In it, was about 20 packets of their tea (which I loved), fortune cookies, a gift certificate for when I returned, and an incredibly sweet note, wishing me good luck in life, which was signed by the staff. I still live nearby and I still visit Wa Toy regularly and I think of John often. May he rest well, for he lived a good life, and changed many.

John was a family friend, my Dad chose friends carefully. Looking back it was a friendship built on the shared values of hard work, family and respect for each other as successful small business owners co-existing in a very small place... everyone knows your name and what you are made of. John was unfailingly kind and welcoming in every interaction I had with him. Generosity is another thing that made him unforgettable to myself and my family. I will always remember John.

Mrs. Gloria Bacharach was my next door neighbor when I was growing up. She gave me my first job as a baby sitter for her children. I was fairly young but since my mother was next door and watched for my "signal" if I needed help, I became adept at the responsibility. When I gave up babysitting for other pursuits, Mrs. Bacharach still kept a soft spot in her heart for me. Fast forward now - I'm 21 years old and engaged to marry. A bridal shower was hosted by Gloria in her home for the neighborhood women. I always felt Gloria had a soft spot in her heart for me and my younger sister, Suzanne. Lucky us to be neighbors with the Bacharach Family.

Beauty lies in the life that one has lived but a greater beauty is the hope we have in God’s promises. So with hearts filled with sadness may we remember Gloria as that smiling light, that glimmer of encouragement, that shining example of caring that touched the lives of so many and was much appreciated by all. She will long be remembered, not only by family and friends but also by God who never forgets one's loving acts of kindness. John 5:28,29; Psalm 37:11, 29

I was impressed with Honey's ability to organize a catered food event while driving from Eugene to Portland and her attention to detail as she assisted the caterer and other family members set up the most beautiful dinner presentation. Honey's voice in conversation was calm and quiet. By her voice and charming manner and eye contact it was a delight to hear her stories of her childhood and to share mine. No matter how busy or hectic all around, she made me feel as though time could and should slow down with two people sharing their stories. I will miss her presence among us at our large family gatherings. I will miss her sense of curiosity about my work for migrant workers and her advice on balancing work and life. Thanks for sharing her story more fully here and the paper. We were all fortunate to have her as part of our family.

As the first Program Manager of the Gerry B and Marilyn C Cameron Center for Finance Center, I benefited directly from Gerry and Marilyn's generosity and support of the Lundquist College. I am honored to have held that position and greatly appreciate the opportunity. The Camerons personify the ideal alumni - giving back so that others can come forward. Thank you Gerry.

Gerry Cameron was one of the first people I met when I joined the Lundquist College of Business at the University of Oregon. His passion for his alma mater combined with his and Marilyn’s commitment to making the world a better place was truly inspiring. He will be sorely missed by those that knew him well and forever remembered for his commitment to giving back to support our students - with scholarships that enabled them to complete their studies, by his support of our outstanding faculty, and the programs that contributed to an excellent educational experience. He will continue to inspire not only me but future generations by the role model he has left for us to follow.

I'm at peace knowing that you're with God & no longer struggling but my soul will never rest until I'm joined again with you in heaven. I love you Grandma, love your darling B. <3

Our deepest sympathy and condolences to the Corrigan family! Maribeth was a true blessing! She touched our lives (through preschool) as well as so many others. So sad to hear to hear this news. She will always and forever be in our hearts. Praying for you all to be able to find peace, and healing through this difficult time.

Maribeth was the preschool teacher for both of my kids, Taylor and Chloe. She was so encouraging and always made sure they felt cared for and loved. I couldn’t have asked for a better preschool teacher for my children. She was always behind the camera and I loved getting pictures from her showing what my kids were up to. I seemed to always run in to her somewhere and we would catch up and swap kid updates. She had such a heart for people. My prayers are with your family.

Wow...where do I start. I feel like we were robbed of a good friendship but I know God got you in a better place. For the three yrs I've known you I always thought that you were the kindest person around. The talks about how awesome your kids are and your passion for God and Jesus Christ. You were by far the most funniest person I met since I moved to Oregon 34 years ago. I'm going to miss you so much. Your passing is on the same day as my son who would be 13. Say hi to Ryan for me. God bless you Maribeth.

Dearest Corrigan family, we are so sorry to hear about our absolutely wonderful Maribeth. We are devastated along with you at the loss of such an amazing, photo taking, Jesus loving woman. Our families life will be forever touched by the woman we knew as our beloved preschool teacher at precious lambs! She was high energy, creative and so much fun🥰! The parties, celebrations, art projects, out door activities, her love, care, creativity, generosity and no nonsense😘! We thank you for opening your home to us for the fabulous parties she would throw... the pool, the multi water slide fun house, cotton candy just to name a few of the fun things she thought of and shared! Know she is missed, that you are loved, being prayed for and that we are sending you all a huge hug. Love to you all, the Nicholson Family

My sister Maribeth... If you knew us growing up you know that we were polar opposites and sometimes like oil and water. She was the older sister that hated when I ransacked her closet and take her clothes especially that yellow and black cardigan sweater that she loved. I was also that little sister that would use all her hair spray ( Aqua Net) and lip gloss then fill it up with water so she wouldn’t notice.... I’m sure she knew but still let me do it because I was her little sister. My sister was sometimes a badass doing crazy stuff as a teenage and little did she know I wanted to be a badass just like her too. Maribeth loved taking pictures but didn’t really like being in them...She was such a romantic and loved reading and watching romantic comedies. She had the best smile with those dimples; Not to mention she had this contagious laugh. She laughed when she was happy, sad, and nervous. I’m sure that laughter got her through some pretty tough times. She lived for her 5 children and I know she is looking down on them as their Mommy angel. My best memory of us was when she visited San Diego and we went downtown to do a little sister bonding. At the ended of the night we were dancing on the stage with my other sister Aleen. She was always so poised so it was AWESOME seeing her have so much fun dancing and singing to some Def Leppard, Bon Jovi, and AC/DC. As sisters we would fight, argue, shout, cry, laugh, and LOVE but that’s what we do... We are and will always be sisters. Rest In Peace Ate...

Dearest Dawn, I wish I had met your beloved Kyle and had the pleasure of hearing his laugh. It seems he had so much of you in him: a twinkle in his eye, able to light up a room, and never met a stranger. I can appreciate the beautiful person he was because of the many absolutely wonderful accolades throughout this writing. Such a warm and loving story, such a genuinely full life. While I am glad that family, friends, and Kunna were there to greet him, my heart is heavy. I pray for your comfort and healing, my Dearest Dawn. You are always in my heart. I love you very much.

Roger was a friend who is missed. Though not in contact for quite some time, he was considered the best of friends. Much time was spent with him studying at PSU and UofO Dental school. I recall “all-nighters” for organic chem. hearing the neighbors lawn mower the next morning as we finished our studies and were departing to take that final exam. Those habits carried over to Dental School. As dentists doing simple procedures for each other, we’d start at 3:00PM and still be at it at 9:00PM talking and laughing much. His sense of humor and his puns were always enlightening. Roger in essence, was a deep, kind, and thoughtful person often pondering our existence and it’s meaning. He is missed for more than the time since passing, and that will continue. Roger, we hope to see you “on the other side” with or without the RX-7. Heartfelt condolences to all who knew and loved him. Joyce & Eric

I had the pleasure of caring for him on occasion at Regency, he was such a sweet man! He would call me "Bentley" even though he knew my real name was Wendy. Twords the end I'd give him a kiss on the forehead before leaving his room, he would smile and kiss my cheek. We would have icecream "dates" as well. He loved his coke, and his icecream. He is missed GREATLY! 😭

I was so deeply saddened to hear about Kyle. He was a student in my third grade class in the Richmond JMP. I remember a sweet and kind boy with a supportive and involved family. His class was memorable for me because it was the year of 9/11. There was a lot of emotion to start the year and that seemed to spark extra kindness among classmates. My heartfelt condolences go out to Kyle’s family, Cole, Marsha, and Amanda.

Mary Lou was my 4th grade teacher at Lincoln Park, during the days her brother, Ron, was Principal. She and my Mom (room Mother) became best friends that summer and for the next 50+ years! Mary Lou went camping with our family (George and Edie Bucholz) year after year and always had her “Misty” with her. Later on, after my parents passed, I would travel to Portland from AK or TX and seldom missed an opportunity to meet her for lunch. we talked on the phone too. She was a dear member of our family. I’m so sorry I didn’t know of her passing until much later. My condolences to all her nieces and nephews. She is greatly missed! ♥️♥️🙏♥️♥️

One day we went to a pool and played there, I saw your wonderful smile. You treated us like real old sisters, I was glad to be that. The days we stayed together is my treasure, I can't say well but it's true. I hope the last time you didn't sufferer anything and stay happy place forever. Thank you again Kyle I'll never forget your smile and the fact I had little brother in Portland. Love you.

After I moved from Chicago to Portland in 1969, I needed to find a dentist who was available on Saturdays. Luckily I found Dr. Amiton, whose office was on SW Yamhill, I believe. I remember him as being very cheerful and efficient. Thank you, Roger! But as they say, life goes on.

In 1969, i was his dental assistant 1 eve per week and on Saturdays. He was so very kind to me when I made mistakes.

Fred Weiss was my mentor when I started working for Aries Prepared Meat Company. I couldn't have asked for a kinder: more patient, knowledgeable person to teach me what I needed to know. Fred knew more about meat than anyone, and he loved sharing his knowledge with me, and with anyone else who was smart enough to listen to him. He had some excellent "sayings" that he also liked to share and one that comes to mind is,"You only have one chance to make a good first inpression." He spoke so loveingly about his daughter Elle. He loved his wife Rose and loved to tell me how they met, and how he asked her to marry him. Fred was a humble man, and a good human being. He was one of a kind!

I know you’re a very lucky man to have a daughter that cared so deeply for you that was so apparent in everything she did you always came first and that’s a wonderful trait she must’ve learned her caring from you.

Dear Margie, Well, another year is over and this time we're graduating seniors. I'm going to miss good old Roosevelt High something awful, aren't you? Especially certain people. I sure hope you don't stay in California this summer forever. I'm counting on going to college with you. I hope we can be as good friends at the University as we have been in high school. We have had a lot of fun, haven't we? Staying overnite at each others houses, those college mixers, the junior class (male that is), bicycle riding--just lots and lots of things. I'll never forget. You've sure been a swell friend to have, and I really appreciate your advice and counsel (spelling?) I'm a person that needs understanding, I think, and you've given me that. And I've had the feeling that if all else should fail, I'd still have Margie. Honestly, your name is on every single page of my diary, and that's just an example of how much you mean to me. I hope we can always be friends like we have been. I hope we are for all four years of college. And even if one of us should get married before that I hope we'll remember each other. And even when we're both married and maybe move away, I hope we will always keep in touch with each other. In closing--to the most wonderful pal a gal ever had.

The last few years of Mom's life were spent with Mark and son Vincent. Vincent and Mark were excellent care-givers. Vincent learned the songs that Mom liked and would play them for her even as she became less and less responsive over the years. He would still play them for her and sometimes hold her hand. He played Chubby Checker's Twist & Shout and then played Tumbling Tumbleweeds by The Son's of The Pioneers and held her hand as he had every night for years. It was time for bed. It was time to gather her up for bed, and he realised that she had passed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JQc5gDXQGIs

My Christmas card came back last year and I was wondering what had happened to my Aunt. I called down where I last visited her and they wouldn't give me any information. Our cousin Richard Myers and I have been trying to get ahold of one of her children but to no avail. My Mother was Wilma and Richard's dad was Clarence. Our Aunt Betty and Wilma and Clarence have all past away. My phone number is 503-760-0977 if any one wants to get ahold of me. I am so sorry to hear of her passing as I used to stop at her house for many years on my way home before I retired from the City of Portland. She was always outside working or playing with the dog till she went into the place on 60th and Division. She did give us some info when last we visited her. She truly loved my Uncle Dick. I do remember picnic's in the back yard around 4th of July. I have such wonderful memories. Hope to hear from some of or all of my cousins Hugs JoAnn

Paul was always helpful and kind to me. When i was worrying about taking my first promotion exam, he called me into his office and gave me notes that he had kept about the questions he remembered from his promotion exam. It helped me get an idea of what the exam would look like. He told me it was common practice for sergeants to mentor their subordinates and since none of the women on the department had been through that process for sergeant, he felt that I had worked hard and he wanted me to succeed. That was an act of kindness that I have obviously never forgotten.

Such an honor to have known Uncle Dave. He and Aunt Ruth raised a wonderful family that are carrying on his legacy of love and grace. He was always so kind to me and seemed genuinely glad to talk. He was a man of love and grace.

I still cannot believe he is gone from us. I spoke with Jack late last summer, and while he wasn’t feeling well, he was still actively engaged in bus rapid transit work throughout our industry and we looked forward to getting together to catch up this past fall. It is why this feels so unfair for all of us who knew him as a colleague and loved him as a friend. To me he was a mentor in navigating the often-nuanced world of consulting practices as well as a trusted partner in building our firm’s reputation and BRT business. There are so many fond memories of Jack I will share. The first was in 2006, when we were asked by the Federal Transit Administration to represent U.S. BRT expertise at an international conference in Cuenca, Ecuador. The conference presiding official, the mayor and the dean of the civil engineering school at the university there, took a special liking to Jack, and lobbied him intensely to come help implement his vision for BRT in his city. On the evening before the conference, Ecuador qualified for the knock-out rounds of the World Cup of soccer for the first time in its history. The whole country erupted in celebration as is common with such events. On the final morning of the conference, Jack and I were scheduled to speak, but a revised schedule was circulated that morning, with a two-hour “coffee break” inserted between my panel before and Jack’s panel after said break. The new break was designed to allow the conference attendees to watch the game Ecuador had against Germany that morning. All of the panelists were also issued Ecuador national team jerseys, and we proudly wore them as we speak. I still have mine to this day and I am certain Jack had his. My other memory was of another international trip, this time as invited speakers at another international conference in Belfast, Northern Ireland. I was scheduled to be the conference chairman, meaning I would introduce panelists and moderate questions from the audience. But then I came down with a case of laryngitis during the trip over! Jack and several of our colleagues insisted that I follow through, and “that it wasn’t that bad,” though I could barely speak. There was Jack in the first or second row center, encouraging me, giving me tea and honey and slipping me what I believe to be a hot toddy during the lunch break at the pub across the street. All of it did make me feel better, and the audience cut me some slack and gave me encouragement, even though at times they could barely hear me – all of it encouraged first and foremost by Jack and our Parsons Brinckerhoff colleagues on both sides of the Pond. These are just some of many memories, of course. Our time together became fewer between as we both got busier thanks to our successes, and lately, our illnesses. But all of them were so simultaneously fun, enlightening and rewarding. Because he treated me like family, I am sure his family misses him dearly, even more so now that he is not here. I certainly do. But our memories and love for him, and his reputation and the deep respect he had in our industry, remain. I am grateful we at least have that, and that he is at peace with no more struggle and pain.

I so enjoyed knowing Al in Tai Chi. I loved his sparkle, and hearing bits of stories from his long life. He said he worked building Mt. Rushmore (not carving, but schlepping). In honor of his work on Mt. Rushmore, and our deep respect for Al, we made a photoshop card for his 100th birthday, with Al's smiling face on Mt. Rushmore. Rest in Peace, Al.

Al was an inspiration to me. I admired all the wonderful qualities that made him the special person that he was. He had intelligence, wit, charm and a caring heart. I met him late in life through the Golden Dragons Paddling Team. Wish I had known him earlier in my life. Al was kind, compassionate, and a true gentlemen. sadly there are few people like that in the world today. He will be truly missed.

Albert, Yes, I will miss such a kind engaging friend as Al. A man, a gentleman, along with being respectful and open to all. What I know most about my friend was how fully he participated in this life he was given. I only experienced the ending years, but I saw a runner, paddler, team mate and captain, a host, a lover, a boat captain, a good conversationalist and listener, a friend to many many people. We will miss him, especially February 4th. My love to Al's family and all his friends. Sue Thornton

Dear Luke's Family, Old and Young, Far and Near, I celebrate Luke's well accomplished and life and share your sadness with you. May you find comfort, peace, love, strength, joy, and hope in the following quotes with the Lord's promises & His own resurrection: “I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make. Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love." -- Leo Buscaglia "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." - John 3:16 "25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. 26 And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?” 27 She said to Him, “Yes, Lord, I believe that You are the Christ, the Son of God, who is to come into the world.” -John 11:25-27 With Love & Prayers, Pastor Carmen Wong

It is difficult to find words of condolence when something so precious has been lost so suddenly. There are no words - it simply takes your breath away. I will be holding the Strackbein's and the Ritsma's close to my heart. Kris was a vibrant loving person and her spirit will live on in our memories of her - her charm, her wit and the closeness she shared with her friends and family. I loved sharing my recipes with her, she was a talented cook! and she often put her own spin on them - and the results were always fabulous! I will miss talking to her about old rock bands that we used to know, and sharing the surprises of a life lived well loved. She will be dearly missed by all. My love goes out to all.

Lesley was my teacher, my friend, and my confidant. She introduced me to Breathwork, she told me the truth about myself when I most needed to hear it. She made me laugh, I shared my fears with her, and there were a few tears shed as well. She helped me learn to trust again and to have an open heart. She was an inspiration to know. It was an honor to have crossed paths with her. I am only now just learning of her passing. She has come into my mind so many times this past year. I was shocked to learn of her fate. She will be dearly missed. Her life held so many adventures and there were many more in store, no doubt. My condolences to the family and loved ones. Sincerely, Olivia

Over the years I came to regard Charlens as not only my financial advisor, but a friend. His efforts have contributed toward my being able to enjoy a worry free retirement.

Even after 2 years I still think about how amazing of a teacher she was. She helped me find my creative voice when it came to writing. She was so kind and supportive and I'll never forget what a joy it was to be able to get feedback from her on something I was working on, or anything like that. I'm so grateful for her.

Dear Esther and Jim, I remember my moments with Andrew when we were kids as well as if it were yesterday. I think fondly of meeting Andrew in gymnastics camp, where I was delighted to find a fellow half Asian friend. I was struck by Andrew's genuine love for life and thoughtful nature. I look back fondly at a playdate we had at your house where he introduced me to his guinea pigs and we floated paper boats down the stream running alongside the sidewalk. I also recall a trip our families took to Calistoga, where I was able to spend more time with Andrew. I am so sorry for your loss, but I hope you find comfort in the fact that Andrew will be remembered by the people he impacted forever. -Kelsey Rasmussen

 

Julia Roehl posted on 10/21/19

My fondest memories of Andrew were in our Bay School mandarin class. His sense of humor always made everyone laugh. I will always remember him for his musical talent, and his performance at the talent show. He will truly be missed. Sending love and prayers.

 

Millie Robson posted on 10/21/19

I am sending love to Andrew's family. He was known for his incredible sense of humor. I often find myself telling stories of the funny things he did throughout high school and college, and the impression of freedom that he has truly left on those around him. He was very kind, and part of that kindness showed in his constant desire to make others laugh.

 

Chau Trinh posted on 10/20/19

Dear Jim and Esther: words cannot express my profound sadness for you and Andrew. Although we haven’t met lately, the memories are alive of the times we spent together at the Ranch in Healdsburg. And the memory of what a cheerful, polite youngster Andrew was. Only time will reduce your pain and help you relive the sweet family memories. I will think often of you and keep you in my prayers and looking forward to seeing you soon. Love, Chau.

We stood shoulder to shoulder and hand in hand as we said farewell to our dear Uncle Albert. It was a beautiful day at Willamette National and as we listened to Taps and the wonderful military salute and the folding of our American flay, and Father’s beautiful words, I knew that although we lost a magnificent mind, a true scholar, an individual with a strong faith, a lover of beauty and books and a very special Uncle that the lessons he taught me are more valuable than any precious gem. You will be missed by us all. God bless your soul as you begin your new life in eternity. We will meet again And such a strong faith

 

Julie Rigotti Cettina posted on 10/15/19

Today my dearly-loved Godfather, and Uncle Albert, will be laid to rest. Words cannot express the depth of emotion in my heart. As we say farewell, I will find comfort in the words, "May the choirs of angels come to greet you. May they lead you to Paradise. May the Lord enfold you in His mercy. May you find eternal life." Godspeed, Uncle Albert!

What a wonderful man! He shared his talents and knowledge with many, plus his strong Catholic faith. When I was at Marylhurst, he played my son-in-law in a play. His "wife" was named Jenny. Five hears later I had a baby named Jenny. He will be in my prayers.

I owe a lot to Al Cereghino. He was not only a professor at the U. of P. where I graduated, but a mentor and friend. I have told many that he was the smartest person I every knew. I know he is thought of as a Renaissance man, and that fits. My brief connection with his Executive Theater program was a significant contributor to the start of my trial consulting career, as the firm that hired me required that experience. I was one of the lucky ones who knew Al Cereghino.

 

Rita Johnson posted on 10/7/19

He was one of the “coolest” & intriguing persons I’ve ever met. Very inspirational & a wealth of knowledge. A sunny disposition that would rub off on a person instantly. It was a honor to know him even tho brief, in the grand scheme of life. I met him in Lake Oswego. He lived directly below me. A remarkable handsome man who seemed to be a “step above it all” and one I claim in my personal “forever friend club”. He is a memorable individual. My thoughts and condolences to all family and I especially enjoyed meeting his nieces, Christina & Linda. May his good memories fill the holes in your hearts while he is gone on another great adventure.

So long for now

 

Christina Utter posted on 10/6/19

My Mom, Flora Cereghino Rigotti, had 3 siblings. Sophie, Stella and my “Uncle Albert”. For as long as I can remember, Uncle Albert helped nurture my imagination, creativity and curiosity. He would often leave me with more questions than answers, but that was meant to make me think. Since 2004, I had more time to reflect with Uncle Albert. Always the teacher, he would discuss the ‘art of slow looking’ at beauty; whether it be art, music, sculpture or the finest of details in faces. It’s difficult to say Goodbye. So rather like HYMN, let me say ‘so long for now’.

I am so sad to have just read that Sam passed away this past February. He was only 6 months older than me. Sam was most important to me during our high school years though he attended Lincoln and I attended Washington. The B'nai Brith in South Portland was where we met in our various activities. We hadn't seen each other for a long time, then finally did get together several years ago and managed to keep in touch. As an amateur genealogist, I have done his tree. May he rest in peace.

I cannot state as eloquently the beautiful words Linda used to describe her Mom, my Aunt. Those words captured her love and generosity to all she loved or met. She was more than generous to me over the years offering nonjudgmental support and love. I remember her phone calls to our childhood home when would try to determine if my sister Kathy or I had answered the phone. So to cover both possibilities she combined both names and said “Clathy?” There are too many wonderful memories to mention but suffice it to say, all will remain in my mind and heart. Though we were separated by many miles, I thought of you often, spoke to you until you were unable to speak and missed having you near. I will always remember your kindness and love. I will miss you.

Faye's house was always the home for her granddaughter, Katelynn, and I to have fun. Be it from 1st graders playing dress up in the basement while drinking seltzer water, to college students sanding down and repainting thrift-store furniture with Faye's tools. Through her open heart and the encouragement of imagination, some of my happiest memories are involved with G-ma Faye. With her wisdom, wit, and love, I'm confident she's watching over her family as the proud matriarch and strong woman she was and continues to be forever in our hearts. My condolences and prayers go out to the beautiful family Faye protected, guided, and raised.

I worked indirectly with Dieter through much of my early career in Electrical Engineering, first at Lattice Semiconductor in the mid 1980's, and at Sharp Microelectronics, from 1988-1996. He was always a pleasant, witty person. Though I didn't work with him directly very much, I always had a lot of respect and admiration for him. I remember at Lattice, he was head of the Digital Signal Processing team, DSP for short, and we used to refer to it with the alternate name of "Dieter Spaderna Products". I was sorry to hear of his passing at a relatively young age, and express condolences to the dear family he leaves behind.

I went to school with Tom Lunt and still think about him from time to time. He and Robert Mahaffey came to Montana to visit me some years ago and we had a wonderful time. Tom Lunt was one of the most entertaining and brilliant men I ever knew. I admired him greatly, particularly the way in which he dealt with his health issues in the latter part of his life. I had the occasion to spend time with him and Portland and always loved watching how well loved his pets, both domestic and wild, were. He was an extraordinary highly sensitive man. Some of my fondest memories of my four years at Lewis and Clark College include times spent with Tom Lunt. I am grateful for the privilege of having enjoyed his friendship for all those many years.

Chuck was my longtime friend, colleague and sometime co-conspirator. Chuck passed away in Mexico while on vacation with Robin. They were celebrating their 28 Anniversary. For those of you who did not know, Chuck had many health problems that he has been managing. Sometimes well and other times not well. Here is what I know about my friend Chuck. He served in the Army during the Viet Nam era, though not in a war zone. He was a member of Local 189 of AFSCME Council 75 for 28 years. He Served as President of Local 189 for 8 years, served on the Council 75 Executive Board, Chaired the Political Action Committee for 8 years during part of my tenure at AFSCME as the Political and Legislative Director. He was Chair of the local SubChapter of the AFSCME Retirees. He was an avid bowler, card and game player, had a remarkable memory for all things historic and..., was a spectacular Chair and parliamentarian, he loved good food, rare scotch, good whiskey and wanted his steaks Blood Red and barely warm. He was a sing-along person to any song he knew, loved Musicals, adored his wife Robin and could almost always make me mad as hell and laugh in the same 5-minute window. We shared our distaste for politicians with no moral compass or commitment to a cause, He simply had no time for people and elected leaders who were not altruistic. He always stood up for the right thing, like it or not! He was way too young, just 67 years old. Too young to be gone from all of us who loved and cared about him. We had many more card games to play, many more dinners to enjoy and many more laughs to have and plots to make for those on our joint list. Not long but well deserved, good and bad. Rest well my friend your duty here is done. Those of us who mourn will watch over your family and our friend Robin.

It took an "angel" to be able to live in that household, with her aunts and grandmother, and take care of everybody in the following years. Please accept my condolences. i would like to have the address of Franklin or Cherie.------PERFECT OBITUARY! ------Cousin, Jessie

To the family and friends,       I am very sorry to here of the loss of your loved one.        Where can we receive comfort when we grieve? 2Corinthians 1:3,4 in the Bible says:   " Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort,  who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God."   God comforts us by letting us know what happens to our loved ones when they die and gives us hope that hey will be brought back to life.  To see proof of this from your Bible ask any one of Jehovah's Witnesses to show you.         Also you can see a short vedio "Is There Hope for the Dead?" https://www.jw.org/finder?srcid=share&prefer=content&applanguage=E&locale=en&item=pub-imv_4_VIDEO&docid=1011214

So sorry to read about the passing of Telsa. Through my many years of friendship with Freddie, and even though I may not have personally met you, I feel I know the whole family. I always admired how devoted Telsa was to Freddie... even when Freddie rebelled against her sister's advice (like cleaning the house or going to the doctor). I always felt good being around Telsa as she was so easy to talk to and so giving of herself. I am certain your beautiful memories of your Mom, Grandma, great-grandma and friend will keep her alive in your heart.

Al loved coming to Patton Middle School (OR) because he so much enjoyed interacting with two particular teachers, one especially, who helped to develop the Holocaust unit based around study of "The Diary of Anne Frank." The 8th graders always entered artwork for the Sala Kryszek Art & Writing Contest. As you can see, the student who did this wonderful work found her inspiration in Al.

I am proud to say that Al was a friend of mine. I have known him for many years. Many years back now I went to do a video history with Al. He invited me to lunch (as did all the Survivors I interviewed) and I recall being a little nervous, knowing Al was vegetarian (actually vegan). I hoped I would be able to eat everything. Well, I couldn't stop eating it was so delicious. Al Wiener was a kind man, a man who connected so easily with students when he went to schools to give a talk. Al told me of a young Muslim girl who came up to him after his talk. She told Al he would probably hate her as she was a Muslim and he, a Jew. Al's response was that he would not hate her, could not hate her. You cannot be blamed for anything your ancestors did. They hugged. Al was indeed, a mensch.

I so enjoyed knowing Francine in the French conversation group on Saturday mornings and in a smaller group where we met in homes.

What an incredible life. Though I knew few of the details, there was never any doubt that Francine was a woman of wit, grace, curiosity, intellectual prowess and generosity, all of which she showed and shared in countless (and often surprising) ways. I'll miss her smile, her parade of gorgeous scarves and pins, her perfect posture and her strength. There will always be a hole on the left side of the back row of the gym, and in our hearts.

It was a privilege and honor to work and share so much of my life with a partner like Bill. He was a cops cop, courageous, calm and controlled under extreme circumstances. Bill was a quiet, humble, warrior with a contagious smile and a real prankster. He treated all with respect and dignity, even those at the lowest points in their lives. Bill's work ethic was unmatched, he at one point in his career was averaging 75 felony arrests a month and was awarded for his valor under fire on more than one occasion. He had huge impact on the heroin and cocaine distribution networks in the Portland Metro area and this world is a better place because of him. Bill was like a brother and always had my back, he was a true protector, loyal, strong and intelligent. Miss You Brother, Godspeed, Dirk

I am so sorry to hear of Mike's death! I was trying to reach him to refer a new client. He handled our car accident in 2010. We could not have been happier with his work. He was the greatest! I thought of him every year on his birthday and always planned to send a card. I’m sorry I didn’t get it sent. His death is a great loss to our whole community but my heart and prayers go out to the family. The loss of a son, husband, father or brother is forever felt. We know that loss firsthand. Our son died in 2011, during our case with Mike. Mike showed much tenderness towards us.

Those who saw his sparkler young self and the lucky ones who knew Jared as the awesome man (he was bound to become) are suffering grief beyond comfort. Stunned by Jared’s passing and so very sad. This angry world has lost a needed, loving, beautiful soul. My heartfelt sympathy.

Jenny, or Ginger as we knew her, would always welcome me into her and Ed's home on weekends while I was serving in the Navy in Florida.

I will never forget her giggle, she could make the sun come out on a cloudy day.

I also remember how happy she was to talk of the great relationship she had with her granddaughter. I am sure her friends are saddened by her passing. Cousin Bob and Jeanne

Jenny was such a sweet, funny and caring person. She loved Shahar and Dee (horses at Forward Stride’s barn). I remember watching Jenny leading Shahar into the barn one evening. He was so patient as she was walking a bit slow that day. She would talk to him while they were walking and he seemed to love the admiration. I will never forget Jenny. She holds a special place in my heart.

I was an attorney in Portland who had a couple of cases in which Mike had prior involvement. He was extremely helpful in helping me understand the nature of the issues he handled as it related to the matters on which I was working. He gave me his time and helped me obtain files to assist me with my understanding of the cases. He had a great attitude about helping me and gave his time willingly and pleasantly. I will always remember him for this. He was a great guy who helped me very much. There weren't too many other attorneys who would have gotten so personally involved with such a nice manner as he did when he helped me.

I met Mike when we started law school together in 1977. I was anxious and knew no one in Eugene. From the first week I feel into a group with Mike and a few others and immedietaly felt at home. Mike became a close friend for the year I spent there (he continued, I did not), and we continued that friendship the next few years with golf and an occasional beer although not near as frequently as I would have wished. Quite simply Mike was one of the nicest people I have ever met. He smiled often and I never remember him saying a bad word about anyone. If he was ever in a bad mood I don't recall it. I left Oregon in 1997 and we did not connect often but he was remarkable in the true sense of that word and a very important person in my life. I give my thoughts and love to his family and friends. I met his father, mother and sisters at his parent's house in Portland and remember them fondly. They had much to be proud of in Mike. And while I only got to meet Keri and David and never met Ariele and Max I can only imagine what a treasure it must have been to have been able to spend so much of life with him. Time will replace the pain with the warm memories of family words will be inadequate to express. I am envious of the thie you shared and will miss my friend. Dan Bickmore

Marty was the real scungili. He was the don of Hawthorne in the late 90's and 2000s. We were close friends, and we visited him at his apartment often. "You gotta rob!" "Job, what job? where?" and "I like a little soup with my sandwich" were some of his best catch phrases. He actually gave me his little red car once, when I was down and out in Ptown because he had bought a new ride. Marty was a great man. His laugh will echo in mind forever.

I took Phenomenology from Graham in the early 70's and later became his poet drinking friend. He never got over my paper on Yoko Ono to which he saw me coming @ Sak's Front Avenue w/ friends ..he threw his wine glass down and comically yelled Yoko Ono is not a phenomenonologist! I lived across the street from him in the early 90's, we read poetry together @ Elliot Bay bookshop and 23rd Avenue Books, but Powell's was too cool to let us read however Walt Curtis had us on his KBOO show. He was a great mentor and humble genius, we had a blast deconstructing a serious scrabble game one afternoon @ his block party with so much hilarity people asked if we were drunk or stoned...it was always with him-..filled with the spirit. We held a vigil the night Billy Rancher died at Good Sam, Graham was like that, I lost track of him except some e-mails, Matt Ecberg told me about his passing today April 7 ..Farewell to a King of Kindness.

He was a best friend in 4th-6th grade til he moved from Brooklyn to VT – I mostly remember playing catch with him endlessly and talking baseball. Maybe spoke to him once or twice in the following year but not after that (pre-social media life). Was looking him up to see what he was up to 30+ years later...didn't imagine this. Wish I could have reconnected, from the little I can glean about him from this, seems like we would have gotten along. My best to all who knew him, and to Chris...who I called "Moon the slick dude" for some reason (We were in 6th grade)...sorry we never did get to hang again.

Terry and Dean, in a big way, started me on my Mazama journey. It was a snowshoeing / snow camp trip. After snowshoeing into our camp and setting up our tent, I walked over to a veiwpoint where Mt Hood was peaking through the clouds. Terry and Dean were standing there and pointed out the climbing route to me. They mentioned something about a cornice. I, timidly, as I knew I was in the presence of two master climbers, asked what a cornice was? They looked at each other and then me and told me I have to take Basic School. Dean got me through Basic and Terry got me up my first climb. What a laugh Terry had. What a look, with his perfect hair and tucked in wool shirts and felt hat. Thank you Terry for all the great great times, the great stories, the wisdom, the commraderie and adventures. You will always be on the trail and mountains with me. LOVE max

So sad. Please accept my condolences. Terry was just such a constant presence for so long doing Street Rambles. I always got a kick out of him showing up in what looked like "street clothes"...but boy could he step out! He even offered to help my cousin Jim, who has some hiking challenges, climb a glaciated peak so he could be a Mazama. He was so happy to be a grandpa...wondered what gift to give Baby. I suggested an engraved baby cup...he went right out and got one!

To the family and friends, I am very sorry to here of the lost of your loved one. In the Bible at 2Corinthians 1:3,4 it says: " Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God." God comforts us by his word the Bible. In it he explains why we have sickness and death and how he will undue all the problems we see in the world today and bring our loved ones back to life. If you would like free Bible studies to bring you comfort, you may ask any one of Jehovah's Witnesses to make arrangements.

I first met Arne in the late 70s when I purchased my first amazing watercolor from a gallery at the Sheritan Hotel, airport in Portland. I even had him paint a portrait for a gift to my folks, my mother loved his work too. She was a watercolor artist. I have many of Arne's early works and over the years he modified his style. I will forever remember his humor and warmth and a great community person. Arne has impacted the lives of so many through his work, and the kind of person he was, I really miss his presence in a room.

I also will miss seeing him walking his dog through the neighborhood. My thoughts are with Greg's family and friends.

Brett, you are the most confident person I have ever know. It has taken me a while to pin point what exactly defines you in my prosoective. But confidence is defiantly it. Everything you have done and achieved you did it knowing the end result. As a kid and still as an adult. I often find myself doing things and using the general knowledge you gave to me. I thank you often and will contenue to do so. You were a very positive part of my life. Still are and forever will be. Thank you Brett.

Christopher was my nephew. Unfortunately, we lost touch over the years, but I remember his love for "Star Wars" and baseball (he was of course a Yankees fan; I am Red Sox). He certainly had his father's intellect. I remember a very special day when Ted's and my father baptized him in the nursing home where our father spent his final years. I will of course pray for his soul and for the comfort of his mother Ronny and of those whose lives he touched.

I already posted this but I wanted to share it here too: I've been thinking a lot about my friend Greg. I have a million stories, most of which involve his amazing laugh, but one that illustrates what a standup guy he was is this. When I was trying to plan Graeme's 40th birthday party, I wanted to do a brew tour on a bus. Literally the last three days up to the party date, I kept calling the guy who I had booked to drive the bus, and he kept putting me off about where he would pick people up, what time, etc. Then, the night before the brew tour, he canceled!!! Greg offered, quite seriously, to rent a limo or a small bus and be the leader of his own brew tour. Because Graeme was on call and couldn't really drink that much anyway, we didn't go ahead with that idea – but the very idea that he was willing and happy to do such a thing for my man's birthday goes to show what a special friend he was. And holy shit, would that have been an amazing brew tour. Although I wonder if the beers would've been as fantastic as his homebrews. I will never forget you, Greg. Rest easy. We love you.

He was adored by family and friends, I think a person his parents would be proud of. May he rest in peace.

I worked with Tony @ Metro Metals for almost 9yrs. I got hired in order for him to retire in 2 years. He retired 10 years later. I will always remember him being my first real friend in Oregon. In 2008 Jerry Seinfeld was coming out here to do his stand up. I commented to Tony how I wanted to go but my wife would be out of town. Next thing I know he is on line buying 8 tickets for me him and all his kids. Him and Ava feel asleep during the show. He was also like a father figure to me and gave me advice about my two kids that I will always use. Words can not explain how badly Tony will be missed. I keep waiting for him to call me laughing and telling me we are even for the April fools joke I played on him back in 09. Love you Tony!!

I won't be the first to say: Tony had a GREAT SMILE !!! I met Tony at St. Philip Neri when we were kids. I'm a couple years older, but he liked hanging out with the big kids. I would run into Tony at Metro Metals many years later, and reminisce about our " Good Old Days " playing sports at Abernathy and flirting with the pretty girls. Tony was always a HANDSOME Man and girls loved him, as I remember. Maybe that was the reason that I wanted to hang out with him. As many of you have already mentioned, this comes a sad shock. I wish that I would have spent more time with Tony when I had the opportunity. My last memory was of him at MM and we talked about going to a Ducks game with beer and Hot Dogs. I MISS YOU Tony. God Bless You My Friend.

Almost a year ago at a time when I was very down and out, a friend of a friend took me up to the farm. That's when I met Tony and JoJo. We All got along like old friends from the start. Of course anyone would agree Tony's Awesome personality and caring manner made it hard to resist liking him . After some time Tony offered me a job and a place to live . His best friend JoJo and I are very close as we're Tony and I. He was a true Blessing to my life and I will forever remember how he saved me and helped me recouperate from living on the streets. And enabled me and encouraged me to keep pushing forward on this ride called life. He was one of the most gratious and Caring people I ever met. Tony I'm so sorry this happened but I'm pretty sure you kicked back smoking a cigar watching the "Ducks" play. I will miss you very much and Thank You for all you've done for me so "In your Memory" I planted a miniature Red Rose Bush in that beautiful Rose Garden that you loved so much.

Reggie added such quality to my life: always kind words, always appreciation, always tried to make me laugh or make me dance (and succeeded). Our bond was tight, like that of brothers. I will miss him everyday, as I remember his shouts of "Hey Rick!" as he got my attention and would start to dance and spin around with that big, beautiful smile on his face, knowing how much I loved those moves of his. And no one has called me a "piece of trash" as often and as lovingly as he did. He was the perfect heel to have in my life. We operated on a strange level, indeed. No one will ever take his place. I'll never forget you, brother!

Whenever any of us feels alone, sad or is having a solo dance party in our apartments...his spirit will walk into the room and smile and say ‘I’m here’. To see this man smile was to witness a bouyant radiation and that is the bit I will lock safe in this box of memories. That damn smile and ‘how you doin?’

 

 

Kristen Olsen’sam posted on 2/10/18

I will say I didn’t know him that well, but this man smiled and it radiated. It is apparent how bright by how many people, like me, were so affected by that bouyant light...that they want to at least say thank you to life for putting him in my path. I can say that his spirit seems like it will keep singing to all of us. When we are alone, when we have a solo dance party in our apartments or when we feel sad. He will be there dancing and singing and shadowing all of us.

Reggie, I met you back in 2003, which means I have known you over half the time I've lived in Portland. We bonded over a mutual love of Skinny Puppy. The one time I got to spin a night with you was a blast. My regret is there will be no more when there should have been many more nights of being your partner in making people dance. I'll miss randomly running into you around town and seeing your warm smile and usually getting a hug out of you. Enjoy exploring the universe since you are no longer an earth-bound spirit. Say "hi" to Jhonn Balance, Sleazy, the Duck, Bowie, Prince, and MJ when you find them. <3

Dan Keene posted on 2/10/18

From the beginning I admired Reggie and wanted to be his friend since we first met, even from our first interactions which were as simple as him ringing up my lunch at Whole Foods when I worked nearby. Then when I started going to Lovecraft I immediately recognized his face. One night I saw him going around collecting empty glasses and returning them to the bar. I asked if he worked there, and he said "No, I'm just helping them out. They're my homies." This guy is solid! Soon I had more interactions with him while attending mutual friends' DJ events and we would gush with excitement over our share interests, like wrestling, horror movies, music, video games, and retro pop culture in general. When I was new to the community, I had a lot of social anxiety and difficulty making friends. Then Reggie, along with friends Aurora and Rick, took me in and made me feel welcome and at home. We would attend each others DJ nights and have a blast requesting and playing songs that would put us in our happy place and dance like the world was ours. We had just as much fun DJing together. We agreed that Return of the Living Dead had the perfect soundtrack, and I will always spin that record in his honor. Away from the dance floor we watched so many movies together that we loved. We motivated each other to write a screenplay together and our collaboration is still in progress. We would message and call each other very late at night with our new ideas. We had meetups with our laptops to write the story and exchange notes, often lasting hours, filled with laughter and excitement. We even compiled a list of songs for our soundtrack, filled with retro deep cuts. Another area where Reggie mesmerized us was his stage presence at many variety shows. He made me a part of a couple of his performances at a variety show hosted by his soon-to-be girlfriend and soulmate, Pamela. I was a henchman for his Joker monologue, and Pugsley Addams for his Gomez Addams as Prince performance. When we found time to talk about life and be real with each other, he would call me one of his best friends, and I reciprocated that right back. He knew I would listen to him, and he would listen to me. He would not allow me to doubt myself, and I will carry that part of our friendship with me forever. Hopefully I can give and share that part with my current and future friends and loved ones that I hold dear.

She was a wonderful cook and enjoyed reading about food as well: books on the history of salt, tea, coffee, etc. she made fabulous scones which were loved by all. We had lots of conversations in the years she lived with us about our respective childhoods, art projects, some of the books she was reading, family, etc. I thank you , Pat, for the wonderful woman who became my wife.

I owe a lot to Al. He was the professor who taught me how to exam patients, he gave me my first job, and he became a friend for the rest of my career in optometry. I loved his enthusiasm for his work. Each patient was treated as special and the only person who mattered, while he was with them. He taught me that I would give the best care for each patient, if I got to know them and cared for them. Never in a rush, the quality of his patient care was exceptional. I will miss Al, but the examples he gave me, I pass on to the students I continue to teach. I'm so sorry for his passing, but so thankful for what he left us.

This was long ago when the disease area was not the main focus of optometry. We all lovingly smiled when he repeatedly struggled with difficult pronunciation of "Retinoschisis" or when he hurriedly bustled down the corridor juggling multiple slide carousels, books, notebooks, and lecture notes, all needed for his lectures. Always a gentle kind and courteous professor. RIP, he will live on in the fond memories of many many eye docs.

I am sorry of the loss of your father and husband. I met Al when I was a junior at the University of Oregon. On our first meeting, JoAnn had invited me to her family's house and I was struck by how kind, warm hearted and interesting Al was. I was so fortunate to know him and he was always a generous and wonderful man. The world is missing a bright star. With love, Sharon

So sorry for the loss of Al. I have so many wonderful memories of him. A warm, lovely man. I will always remember the wonderful fruits and vegetables that he brought every Rosh Hashanah! Love, Laurie

When someone you love becomes a memory, those memories become a blessing. I have 65 years of memories of my oldest big brother, and I have chosen to only remember the fun times. He called me "Fatty Ass", I called him "Fatty Nose". Those were the words he and I said to each other during his 1st phone call from the Naval Hospital in the Phillippines. He was hospitalized well over a year before he was stable to send stateside. He was very severally wounded in Nam within his first few months there. Paul had a strong core & personality, that and 1000's of prayers brought him through. When he walked into a room, he had a presence you could not help but notice, and when he hugged you, you felt safe and loved. I am blessed to call him "my brother". Love always to you Fatty Nose.

Living on the other coast from Chris and Michelle, we never had the opportunity to spend much quality time with Michelle. Having held Chris as a baby we know that Michelle had to be a very special person to capture his heart. And that she did!!! Having them visit the east coast several times over the years we did get to meet Michelle but it wasn’t until we made a trip to Portland and visited with them for four or five days, did we really get to know her. Michelle had a special way (as did Chris) to make us feel so very welcome and they spent the entire visit chauffeuring us all throughp the area. We had the opportunity to meet all their family and friends. She touched many lives and will be greatly missed.

Having known Michelle for over 30 years, she IS and always will be the kindest and most thoughtful person we have ever had the pleasure of knowing! Rest in Peace with our LORD and SAVIOR Jesus Christ!

I was a student at PSU in the late 1980's and 90's. I took every philosophy class that Professor Conroy offered. He was one of my favorite professors and I loved how organic his lectures were. I'm so sorry to hear of his passing. All my best to his family and friends.

I am at a loss. I just read the news. Chris was one of my favorite Pemi pals. The summer of 1992 and 1994 were special events. The laughs we had those years as counselors. He had the best wit. And he helped me be a better coach. My heart is broken.

 

Derrick Bell III. posted on 1/9/18

I knew Chris from visits to Pemi. He was younger then I am, but I thought he was a very nice person. I saw him pitch the Pemi Counselor's to victory, during a counselor baseball game vs. Mooseilauke in 1990. Years later Mooseilauke Counselors refused to play Pemi Counselor's in baseball. Because they didn't want to face Chris. I also remember two of his classmates from Brattleboro Vt. who works as cocktail waitresses in Harvard Square. They spoke highly of Chris, and they also knew Phil Bixby.

Patrick was my friend for nearly 50 years. Though time passed when we were apart, getting together was a validation of the strength of friendship as if no time was ever lost. A time ago I had been able to travel to Australia with him and met his parents, his brother and sister, and many of his admiring friends. He was a world-class athlete who was always humble about his accomplishments but was honored for them in Australia and England and probably wherever Rugby will be played. He was a fine caring teacher and he was good family man. He will always be one of my heroes. I will miss him very much but know his memory will last forever. To Deloris and Mandy and all the rest of his extended family I will send my sympathy but know he was a great man who had a long full and satisfying life. I know Patrick would not have asked for more.

Brett was an amazing character. No man could beat his wisdom nor his bark. He had enough strength to put an any wise guy back down in his seat without lifting a finger. I learned alot from this man in thw few year i knew him. My dad admired his friendship as if it were pure gold. He is gone way to soon. I love his wonderful family and know they are with him in spirit. Dear lord, im sure he will have a few up there pull his finger too. Love you brett im so sorry i didnt find out sooner.

Gwynne’s passion for Hillary was exciting. I had never seen nor imagined a childlike Gwynne. I saw that the day Gwynne competed to be a delegate to the DNC. Gwynne was determined, passionate, and thrilled to be part of what many of us wanted to be HISTORY. I will always remember Gwynne’s passion, commitment, and concern for others. Brave, confident, and loving. I cherish the memories I hold for how Gwynne made me feel like I was stronger in this world, I could do more. Blessings, Gwynne. You’ve inspired more than you know. Celebrate in gentle peace knowing you kicked it here on earth.

My heart goes out to all who knew and loved Alex. I met him as a student in a class, and always looked forward to what he would add to our conversations--about American cultures and identities, each person's sense of who they are and how the world looks and its impacts and promises-- and had the real pleasure of talking with Alex about his own education, insights, and experience as he and I put an American Studies major together for him, looking forward to his BA, but really all the things he might say, make, and do just because they were worth attending to. I admired his effort and willingness to see how all he did, and all he thought, belonged together. He was a vivid, singular and inspiring person. I will miss him and wish him peace. --UW advisor and teacher, Frieda Knobloch

My condolences to all of Alex's family! We became friends in the 7th grade and were inseparable throughout middle school. It was alway Alex, Kenny, Kevin, and Chris. Over the years we have not kept in touch, but we were always friends and always will be! I'll see you up in heaven and we'll have a couple of beers! I'll miss you my friend!

We wanted to share our condolences with Carol’s family. It is never easy to have to say goodbye to a loved one. The pain of loss can be unbearable. Our Creator promises us that one day this pain will be just a memory. That beautiful promise can be found at Revelation 21:3,4. Our pain and suffering will be a thing of the past, and we can cry tears of joy as we welcome back the ones that we love so much. We hope you find comfort in those promises.

Its been a little over a year and Alexs birthday just passed, the past couple of years we would always do something the night of, after he was done with his family stuff and i was done with mine. This year was so different, it didnt feel right. I feel like life has been testing me so much lately but i know Alex is looking down on me and watching over and everyone he cared about so deeply. Ive been missing our deep talks, you randomly educating me about some kind of history, taking maggie on a walk, laurelhurst, everything. You never ever once stopped having my back and i cant thank you enough. I love you so much Alexander and i miss you. I know ill see you soon someday. I pray everyday for everyone struggling and your family dealing with the loss of you. I love you always

Chris was a wonderful guy, smart with a good sense of humor and great disposition. I played baseball with him for a couple of years in college, and remember one time when we had a late class and couldn't ride on the team bus, so instead Chris drove us to the game in his car. About midway there he noticed he was low on gas, and neither of us had any cash. We spent about 10 minutes going through the cushions in the car, turned up 77 cents, and were able to get enough gas to make it to the game. All done with a smile on his face and good humor. Happy to have had him as a friend, and I am so sorry to hear he has passed. He will be missed.

My heart aches for the Littell family to lose in death your precious loved one Boyd, way too soon. Words are so limited that can give comfort, so I would like to share with you beautiful scripture where our heavenly Father, Jehovah (Psalm 83:18) invites you to throw all your burdens on him and he will sustain you in your time of grief. Psalm 34:18 None of us are guaranteed tomorrow, but we are all guaranteed a resurrection. Our savior, Jesus, promises us: John 6: 40; "For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who recognizes the Son and exercises faith in him should have everlasting life, and I will resurrect him on the last day". Jesus comforts us at: John 5: 28; "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out..." John 11:23-25; "Jesus said to her: "I am the resurrection and the life." The one who exercises faith in me, even tho he dies, will come to life." I pray that Jesus's promise to reunite us with our loved ones on resurrection day will carry you through the difficult days ahead and gradually replace your tears of grief with tears of Joy as you reflect on your precious memories of happier times with Boyd. The family is in my prayers and I offer my heartfelt condolences.

Mom was a warrior, protector, teacher and loving mother. She taught me as a young child to be responsible and kind. She taught me work ethic, as she was a hard worker and provider. Mom taught me about loving God, as He is our ultimate protector. I was honored and privileged to have cared and provided for my mother for the past several years. She always had a smile on her face in spite of the daily pain she endured and never complained. I love you mama, you are my hero. Thank you for being my mom. Rest in Peace

BEAN FIELDS! That was the first thought that came to me as I began to reflect on memories with Mom. Each summer beginning at age 6 for me, after school let out for the summer mom would pack up us kids and head to the berry and bean fields to earn money for the new years school clothes. We camped in tents and later stayed in small cabins. Yup, up at 6am and worked until 6pm then Mom would somehow manage to cook up the best supper on a coleman gas cook stove, we still had some energy to play for and hour then would bath in a wash tub and head to bed. Life was simple and our family was happy...those were good days! Rest well Mom!

So sorry to hear of Nick's passing. We were his neighbors for the last 30 years in SE Portland. I learned a lot about gardening by watching and talking to Nick each spring and summer. He grew heirloom tomatoes that were brought over from Italy by his grandparents; he carefully cultivated the seed each season. He had an amazing green thumb...his cucumbers were the best. Nick and Dorothy were wonderful neighbors to us; we greatly miss them both. Condolences to his family; we mourn with you.

We even went to our first Gilbert and Sullivan production with the Kleins on Boxing Day--the D'oyle Carte production of The Sorcerer, at the Sadler's Wells Theatre. We became lifelong friends. I will always remember Anese as being warm, loving, and supportive, and I will miss my friend. Condolences to Bernie, Carol, and Scott. Thank you to Scott for all your help over the years.

Michael, Peter and Betsy, my heartfelt condolences to you and your families. People in Madison that loved your mother were so sad to hear that she passed away. I put a vase of purple flowers at your family marker in forest hill cemetary. I lit a candle there too on friday morning and i will try to keep it lit this week. I have been flooded with wonderful memories of your dear mom and soon I will write them down and send them your way. We had lots of adventures together and I have been reflecting on those. Your mother meant a great deal to me. She had a profound influence over my life and the lives of many many others. I have turned to my piano to express my sadness and to honor your mother. Been playing a lot these past few days. For some reason I've been drawn to a sweet piano arrangement of Faure''s Pavanne (opus50). I'm not sure why. I think maybe because it sounds sweet and sad at the same time. With deep love to you three. May you find comfort in each other during this time of great sorrow. Love, Ann McDermott

Tried calling Lenny yesterday on Yom Kippur and was puzzled his number was disconnected. So, so sorry to hear of his passing. First met Lenny 49 years ago. We were roommates and friends at the UofO and stayed in touch through the years. Lenny visited with me in Tahoe a handful of times, we saw dozens of Duck games -- traveled together more than once. He was so loyal to Grand & Benedicts for over 30 years (maybe 40?). And they to him. Don't see that kind of relationship too often these days. So many great Lenny stories -- sorry none come to mind right now, though. Forgive me, it's very sad news. Condolences and blessings to Arthur, Emilie and Barbara -- and all who knew him. Too soon, Lenny, too soon. Lenny, say hi and thanks to your parents up there. (Still remember that Thanksgiving spent at their house, playin' football at the park w/ you and Arthur. (Still think it should have been "Balk's Bootery"! Say hi to mine, too. So glad we each got to meet the other's mother and father. RIP -- Lenny, you'll always be remembered. One of a kind.

WE SPENT MANY AN HOUR LISTENING TO THE SYMPHONY, SHARED MORE MEALS THAN I CAN COUNT, COCKTAILS-SOMETIMES A LITTLE TOO MUCH AND SPENT EVERY BIRTHDAY TOGETHER FOR OVER A DECADE. SHE WAS GENEROUS WITH HER TIME, HER MONEY AND HER SPIRIT. DEB WAS THE OLDER SISTER I NEVER HAD. IF SOMEONE WAS IN NEED, SHE WOULD ALWAYS JUMP IN AND HELP. SPENT FAR TOO MANY HOURS TOGETHER IN DOCTOR'S OFFICES. PARKINSON'S, FOR HER, BEGAN IN HER LITTLE FINGER. THIS UGLY DISEASE SLOWLY SAPPED THE LIFE FROM THIS DYNAMIC, ENERGETIC BALL OF ENTHUSIASM. THEY SAY ALTZHEIMERS IS THE LONG GOODBYE, WELL SO IS PARKINSONS. DEB, YOU MEANT SO MUCH TO ME AND YOU WERE SUCH A SPECIAL PART OF MY LIFE. I LOVE YOU AND WILL ALWAYS MISS MY MOST PRECIOUS FRIEND AND SISTER.

I first met Hans in 1975 when I had finally saved up enough money for a Hans Biglajzer Custom Made Saddle. He was a lovely man and I enjoyed each and every visit with him. That saddle served me well throughout the years. I recently donated it to Sound Equine Options to support their great cause. I am sure that someone else is now enjoying my saddle. Thank-you Hans!

 

Marita and Matthew Corey posted on 9/28/17

It has been so many, many years ago. We lived in Clackamas Oregon about 1&1/2 miles from the Biglajzer home. We had three children, Matthew, Kaileen and Kathie at that time. We ate at their home and they ate at ours. We still have a funny story in our family. We were leaving their home after dinner. I invited Hans to come to our home the next Sabbath eve, My wife asked him what he would enjoy having for dinner. He smiled and thought, ... then replied, "Beef stroganoff!" My wife went through recipe books looking how to make it. It turned out - Wonderful ! As their family was leaving I told Hans how my wife had to 'look-up the recipe'. He replied, "I'd never had it before, but I'd heard of it, ... so that's what i said when she asked me. Hans was a Great conversationalist and his saddles were pure art. Appreciated reading his article in the old Plain Truth Magazine concerning his 'terrible experience' during World War 2. I look forward to speaking with him again, of course, after The Messiah - Returns to Rule ! May THE ETERNAL Give Great Comfort and Love to your family. Bless you this Yom Kippur & Tabernacles - Marita and Matthew Corey

Bea was such a great friend to me for 32 years. She helped me get through the sudden and unexpected loss of my Mother. This woman had a heart of gold and would lend advice if you asked. We had many fun and interesting days over my 10 years at Grantree Corporation. She taught me to make some merger most favorite candy recipes. Mothers Day, Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas were such important celebrations to her. Her Son Ron and I got engaged in 2014, and was so looking forward to see him get married. I'm so sad that she won't physically be there, we know she'll watch from afar. Bea told me not to cry and I told her I wouldn't, and she already knew I was lying.. I laughed and said well maybe I would just cry for a week or so... She laughed and said not to complain about bags under my eyes from crying. She really helped Ron and I after nearly being killed by a drunk driver in 2015. Her words of encouragement and belief in God got Ron and I through the toughest of days. She told us to love each other stay strong and don't give up after she is leaves this world . Bea I miss you!

We will miss Fay in our Tai chi group. Her enthusiasm was a great asset. We so appreciated her enthusiastic spirit. What I remember most was her willingness to love those around her. She loved easily. I admire that and am inspired by it. I know friends and family have many positive memories and will feel her loss in many ways and on many levels. My heart goes out to you. I wish you all comfort as you deal with this transition.

I love you. I miss you more and more everyday. I keep trying to find a reason to believe you're gone. But I can't. I still feel you here I still can hear your laugh. I miss you so much and I wish you were here. We always said to eachother.. "I don't know what I'd do without you" Well I'm now forced to be here without you. I hate it. I miss our little walks and our talks about how frozen soda turns into a science experiment. Our days at cathedral laying in the grass. The days when you would hold me while I cried. The days when me you Ginger and Kayla would do things we shouldn't. None of us will ever be the same. And I'm sitting here at work thinking about if maybe I did something different you'd still be here. I love you more than life it's self Donell Lee❤️

Lawrence, and Fay's family in Iran and the U.S. and Canada: I am heartbroken to hear of our dear friend and neighbor, Fay, passing on. She was always the liveliest one in our coffee sessions with the other women of our street; and very politically-minded. She was very aware of world politics especially in Iran (she preferred to call it Persia, and identify herself as Persian). We also spoke a lot about contemporary politics in the U.S. during our coffee sessions, of which we all had loud and definite opinions. We will miss Fay's voice to add to the fray, and her beautiful smile in the photos of her she emailed to us of various vacations with you. I am very sad and she will always remain in my heart as a special friend.

Larry and family, I am so sorry that we have lost our dear friend, Fay. We will miss her in our Tai Chi Class at the Hollywood Senior Center. I enjoyed talking and joking with her.

Jo, I will always remember her smile, laugh, and honesty. One time jo asked me how I was going to survive without knowing how to cook and shortly after she had her mind set with "needing" to teach me! We got in a few cooking lessons before her last days. She was able to impact my life positively in such a short amount of time and I will forever be touched. Thank you Jo ❤️

I just remember Sue as my supervisor in the Customer Training Center.. Also as the one that 'let me go'.. I will always remember her voice.. how soothing it was no matter what she was talking about, it captivated me.. even when she let me go (which was actually a blessing in disguise). I will always look back at her with great fondness, and laugh at our topless stories that were only shared between the two of us! (since we both had convertibles!).. She was a beautiful woman.. RIP Sue.. My condolences to the family...

Oh "Doodle"....You asked me to promise you I would be with you "at the end". I told you I would. When we last spoke on Sunday, I told you to HANG ON...I will be there!!! I really believed I had time. Unfortunately time ran out, and I didn't get to keep that promise. I believe that all of us were shocked that you left us so fast. I want u to know that I really tried...and was in such a panic to be with you. I feel so bad and it is something I have to live with the rest of my life. My only consolation is that I was with you in May, and we had a wonderful time together. You were strong then.....and it never occurred to me that it would be the last time I saw you. I am so glad I was with you every time you went to the hospital for kidney dialysis ....meeting all those wonderful people that made you feel a part of that family. I know how much you cared for all of them, and how much they cared for you. Thank you for taking such good care of Jo.... We shared so many wonderful memories together.... and yes, bad ones too.....you were always pig headed and stubborn....lol.....but the good times sure made up for that. We went on so many road trips together, and I saw places I only dreamed of going. Our special place being New Orleans...I will always remember the laughter, sitting on "MY bench"....eating that greasy chicken and me always trying to make you laugh....wearing a boa, picking up beads on the street for you.....trying to stalk Fats Domino with "Walking to New Orleans" blaring from your car......(which embarrassed you, AND the more embarrassed you got, the longer I did it)....Memphis, Nashville, Florida, San Fran...going to Alcatraz wearing those funny hats...... North Dekota where we got caught in a snow storm in July...and I went into that store wearing a housecoat, trying to get THE HELL OUT of Texas.....BUT.... "mooning" you all over the States,,,,(especially in Nevada, had to be the funniest)....,Hey Doodle...expect it when you least expect it!!!!! Oh how you laughed!!!!!.So many places, so many memories. Just so many GOOD TIMES TOGETHER!!!!! Thank you Dory and Brenda for ALWAYS being there for Jo, I know how much it meant to her...Thank you to the care giver who was so amazing, and didn't get upset when I phoned so often. Thank you Marilyn for all those phone calls we shared...supporting each other.....Thank you Steph for keeping me informed. Doodle: I miss our nightly phone calls......I miss your voice, your laughter, I will ALWAYS LOVE YOU , and you will be in my heart forever. xo

Yo mamma. I will miss you, especially on mothers day. This last year, I forgot and never made it up.. I am so sorry for that. I met Joanne when I started working in collections, at age 19... we did not make friends quickly.. but we bonded over a grudge with another employee. When she retired we made a habbit of going out to dinner at least once a month. We would be either at the Outback, or a Mexican food restaraunt. We made Thanksgiving a habbit, and then mothers day. When I went back to school, we lost touch a bit and I regret this. Joanne had a way with people. She was honest, opinionated and ... herself. She never let anything step in her way of what she wanted, she always found a way. She will be missed. Yo mamma, I love you and I will miss you. Until we see each other again.

Do you know Randy had a front row ticket to the Trailblazers for about 15 years. Feet on the wood floor! Directly across from the visiting team. Play (and players) in your lap. I got to use that seat many times over the years. He was recognized as the big boisterous guy by many top NBA players (including Kareem and Magic and many others when they came into town). He also was well known to the referees, and many times he was well received by the fans as he made his opinions known to all. (Once during a time-out, he stepped onto the floor and offered his eye-glasses to a ref. The crowd went wild. And for some reason, he was not ejected, as would normally be the case. I heard about it the next day from several who were there -- 'Did you see what your brother did at the game last night?!?') I'm Randy's younger brother, so I've known him my whole life - looked to him. We shared a room for several years. We did a lot together for over 6 decades. He visited us often. I miss him.

Betty I am so sorry for your loss of your best friend, husband etc. You and Rennie were so great together. You were great friends to everyone we all knew. I remember when Miranda was a little girl and Rennie would hold her and carry her around and she looked at his hands and said "Uncle Rennie your hands are so clean" We all laughed because she didn't know the difference between you guys and us and never did in her life. I hope they are together in heaven. Even though we know they won't hurt anymore, we still cry because we miss seeing them and hearing their voices. Miranda had us laughing all the time so we miss her cry ways. When you get time and we are both home, give us a call. I love you and miss you so much. If you remember where we lived we don't live there anymore. Love you, The Schauer's

To family and friends, please except my condolences. The loss of someone dear to us can leave us devastated - asking why. The loss, whether unexpected or anticipated still has a heartbreaking affect on us. Comfort can be found in the inspired words found at Revelation 21:4. there we see how everything causing us anguish in our lives will be gone - including death. We also have the wonderful hope of seeing those we have lost by means of the resurrection hope given at John 5:28, 29. Please visit JW.ORG for more Bible based articles and videos that provide comfort, support, hope, and answers to sincere questions.

I am his brother and all 8 sisters brother. Friendship so deep..countless overnights, flashing lights and speaking on walkue talkies fro. Our windows 200 yards away. He blocked for me as a full back from 3rd grade to 8th leading me to a 26 touchdown season our final year. We share our blood as children like they did in Western movies, making a small cut and tying our wrists together. we slept 2 hours in our ski boots after skiing down the long carpeted stairs in his home on 17th & Knott before getting on a bust as Pounder Hounds in the late 70's. Countless more experienced. He visits me often...An angel watching over me each day as it will be until I join him..I can't express my sorrow nor grief, etc. I love you DTO

Scott's mother, Barbara, and I are cousins by marriage, sharing our Aunt Lena Amato Oreste, and Uncle, Raymond J. Oreste. I had the pleasure of knowing Scott for all of his life. His love for all of his family, especially his Great-Uncle Ray, and for cooking and fishing and the beautiful Oregon outdoors; as well as his love for attending concerts and theater, was well known. Scott was a loving son and a warm friend, and we will miss him very much. We know he is in Heaven, happy once again.

Although I lived 300 miles from Randy for the last 37 years, I felt he was always close to me, being closest in age of 3 brothers. When he was a kid, we were on our own in the summers and we often baked together creating interesting deserts for our family that always surprised our parents. Even though he used to sing with me at the piano, who would know he would grow up to sing karaoke in front of strangers in karaoke bars! Quiet Randy was even in one of my high school classes - Creative Writing! He was quite intelligent but kept that to himself. He pretty much just sailed through school. But he was always a fan of any sport Portland had even if he couldn't play it. Go Randy. Think of him as you watch.

Not only was I lucky to be able to meet such a cool dude who knew so much about his job and computers, I had the pleasure to work with him, get to know him, but what I was most thankful for was I was also there to witness the very beginning of the amazing and beautiful relationship that was Heather and Todd. Which was and will always be a beautiful love story. I always enjoyed his witty and very dry sense of humor that always kept me on my toes. He will be missed so very much.

Randy was a neighbor and we enjoyed conversations with him when he came over while I was working on my car. We talked sports, car repair, and all sorts of things that would just surprise us of how knowledgeable he was. We even had a couple of playful snowball fights on the back deck. It all would just make you wonder what was like in his earlier days. A very gentle man.

I remember when he went to umpire school, too. We will miss him.

Todd -- "Jorgy" -- became friends with my husband when they worked together at Fred Meyer, and he was such a kind, spirited and funny soul, that he invited us to meet his family and dogs, and often share some beers. Going on vacation with Todd & Liz to Reno was a blast. We were set to reunite with him in Portland and are deeply saddened to see him go. Todd, as The Dead said, If I knew the way, I would take you home.

Jorgy was one of my absolute favorite people at Apple. I would literally breathe a sigh of relief when he walked into a meeting. So talented, so funny and so young. He will be dearly missed.

I will never forget knowing you, and being so thankful to have you as a new addition to our family. You were nothing but the kindest person to me and I'm so very grateful for the times we had. My only wish is that we could have had more time with you, and I'm certain that anyone who knew you wishes the same. Love, thoughts, and prayers from my family to yours. Thank you for everything brother, I'll meet you on the other side.

Hate the hurt little brother.....we were like brothers. Being on the same baseball teams, going to Columbia Chargers Football Games Friday Nights. Working together at the Holiday Inn, UPS....also never wanted to tell you but you had a brilliant mind but I got my degree before you lol, rest in peace, Love Keek! Long live the pyramid....

I worked with Todd at Apple for several years. He was an extremely fun guy, easy to be around. I feel so sad for his family, because I know how hard he worked to provide a nice life for them. We are all very sad at Apple about his passing. Fare thee Well Jorgy.

Todd and I worked together doing computer support at Fred Meyer's Corporate Office. He was not only a great fellow employee, but a great friend. I want to extend my sincere sympathy to all of Todd's family and friends. May God bless all of you in this sad time.

 

 

Brandy Nollette posted on 6/26/17

I can't help but smile when I think of Todd. He was and always will be that sweet, goofy and willing to help a friend type of guy to me. It's been years since I have seen him, but I'm pretty sure it would've felt like days when I did. I will miss him, but I will not mourn him. He'd be mad if I did! Today I'll play "There come's a time" in his memory. I hope he gets to meet Jerry Garcia! May his family find peace with his passing and know that he was loved by so many. Best wishes and RIP my friend.

Marcel was a man of dignity, wisdom and conviction. He was a caring man even though his exterior didn't always come across that way. He would always help the people that he loved and I'm very fortunate to have had him in my life. I considered him a father figure to me and I cherish the times that we spent together as a family. He loved old school comedies and the food network. I recall countless hours at his home laughing and eating all sorts of foods that my mom and Marcel would conjure up throughout the day. It is with a heavy heart that I write this and even though we had not seen each other in a couple of years, I will always love Marcel and his two sons. My deep condolences go out to his family both here and in Romania. May he find peace and solace in heaven. May all of the pains that he felt in this life be taken away and may the lord comfort his loved ones during this difficult time.

To the family: I knew Kenny as a neighbor up the street. He spoke kindly to my family many a time as we walked by his home on the way into Mt. Tabor. Just last summer he drove by and saw our back yard bible club meeting and he was delighted to see the Lord's message being shared in our neighborhood. I just learned today he had passed but I knew something was up because I hadn't noticed him around. I am sad but do know he is celebrating with Jesus.

To the Family of Mrs. Mary Jane Nicolaisen: I would like to offer my condolences in the passing of Ms. Nicolaisen. I would also like to take this opportunity to share some comfort from the Bible. I noted that Mrs. Nicolaisen was a spiritual minded person, so I'm sure you will appreciate these scriptural thoughts. Psalm 36:9 calls Jehovah God "the source of life," and as such, he is certainly capable of restoring life to someone has died. The Bible shows that in the past, he has done so and is eager to do so again! (Job 14:14,15) This will be done by means of the resurrection of all of those who have died in his memory. Acts 24:15 speaks of the resurrection of both "the righteous and the unrighteous," (NOT the wicked). So then, you do have a real hope of being reunited with your dear love one, Mrs. Nicolaisen. The Bible promises the earth will be cleansed of all wickedness, sorrow and death and even the animals will be a peace with all mankind. (Revelation 21:3-5, Isaiah 65th chapter and Psalm 37:10-11, 29) What a wonderful hope, we have ahead of us, wouldn't you agree? Again, please accept my sincere condolences.

My dear sweet Aunt Shirley, When I was little I always looked forward to your house on the weekends. Then I had a daughter of my own who was the same way. She couldn't wait for Friday to get here so, Bree could go spend the weekend with you. Bree lost a part of her heart when we lost you. You meant so much to her. You made everything fun, holidays, birthdays, weddings. When you couldn't make it to the last holiday it just wasn't the same. We all thought of you, and prayed for you. You were always there for me when I needed you. I truly took that for granite I see now. Whenever something happened I called you, you were my prayer warrior you said. There's not a day that goes by that you don't cross my mind, I just wish I could have a little bit more time with you. Our family just is not the same without you. Say hi to grandma and grandpa, tell them I love and miss them to, most of all say hi to my son Joseph and tell him how much he is truly missed and loved. Aunt Shirley I love you so much. You are such a kind soul. One more thing Thank you for everything you did for me, I definitely did not tell you enough and I should have. Love always your forever niece Mindy.

I was so sad to learn about Lloyd's death. We had not seen each other in years but Lloyd and I were great friends at Overland Avenue school in West L.A. Together we organized a talent show for our sixth grade class with the theme of "The Roaring Twenties"! Lloyd directed most of the skits, did the technical lighting, and was the emcee! I did an impersonation of Al Jolson singing "Mammy." Lloyd's parents, Bea and Irwin, were wonderful people and I always felt welcomed in their home. Lloyd had a truly amazing imagination and was a born comic. I too remember Lloyd's accordian playing. He played "The Anniversay Waltz" at several school events. Lloyd will always have a special place in my heart. We shared the magic and wonder that is childhood. My deepest and warmest wishes to Lloyd's family. I loved him! John

Dear Claire, In 2005 I took a wonderful 3-day watercolor workshop in Santa Barbara, CA with you and Arne. To be with such a talented, generous, kind and witty man for those few days was an incredible joy. I have framed the 'Artistic License' that Arne gave to participants in our class, and it makes me smile and remember the fun and great instruction that week. I think it's a tribute to Arne that someone who met him during one workshop in 2005 could be so moved by his passing. My deep condolences to your family.

Dear Claire and family, we were saddened to learn of Arne's passing and you all have our deepest condolences in this sad time. You will remember that my mom, Lois Wright, worked for and with you and Arne over quite a number of years -- I think she first started when the firm was Westerman-Webber, and she was there through all the iterations. She loved her job, loved knowing you, and through her Judy and I had the chance to meet you. Arne even painted a portrait of our daughter Jennifer, I think probably in the earlier days of his artistic endeavors. Please accept our heartfelt best wishes now and in the future. We will all look back and remember Arne with a smile.

Thank you for the wonderful tribute to Arne, which is well-deserved. We had the honor and pleasure of knowing Arne when our office was at 711 SW Alder. We were on the same floor as Arne's studio, and met him early on. He had a rare sense of humor. I enjoyed seeing his art-in-progress. He often asked one of us to come to his studio and pose. He painted from photographs, but also used models. We were lucky enough to be those models on occasion. My coworkers may have had different experiences, but when I posed for him it was usually to capture the gesture of a hand. I will never forget that. Of course, our most famous encounter was when he took a photo of a coworker taking a nap in the break room. This photo later became a painting :). I am grateful Arne lived a full life doing exactly what he wanted to do. He deserved that.

I remember Arne for his quirky humor, tinged with a side of irony and whimsy behind which sat the main course of love. He was a beloved first cousin of my mother, Tanette, who predeceased Arne; I imagine he is telling her a joke right now. Arne was larger than life and we all loved his visits to SF and marveled at his artwork. He will be greatly missed and also admired for living life to the fullest and loving well. Please accept our conferences as you both mourn him and celebrate his beautiful life. Love, Steve and Linda

Arne came to Moorhead, MN to do a workshop for our local Red River Watercolor Society. He was 86. He had failing sight, but his teaching about design was profound and reflective of the wisdom he had gained from painting for many years. His humor was a blessing. Every time I re-read his book, I smile because it is so "Arne". I treasure his kindness, humor, and sensitivity to others. His watercolors were truly filled with light and life. He knew how to capture the feeling of the moment with paint and brush. I consider him a master teacher and will always treasure my memories of his time here with our art group.

I am shocked. I was just thinking of Ed these past few days. Remembering the fun times we had with Ed and Florence during the short period we lived in Portland. They were one of the first people we met there and remained friends throughout our 13 year stay. Habonim and the Labour Zionist movement were one of the common interests we shared. He will be missed.

So sorry for the loss of your beloved, Mudd. I remember her as devoted to her role as Mother and Grandmother. She seemed cheerful and delighted by having people around to care for and to fix a meal. Take comfort in knowing she loved all of you even though her ability to express that was diminished. Knew she loved gardening and the beach walks. Thanks for sharing more details about her life. Rest in peace, Mudd.

Peggy was always such a joy! I remember my first time meeting Peggy, a day filled with smiles. Smiles and singing. One of the many things I enjoyed about Peggy were the stories she would share with me. She was such a wonderful story teller! Her time at lake Ronkonkoma when she was a child, her time as a telephone operator and all the famous people she had met, and attending catholic school were a few of my many favorites. Although we only knew each other a short time, the days I spent with Peggy will be memories I will always cherish. Peggy always made me feel more than just her caregiver. Peggy was my dear friend and I am honored to have known her. May her soul Rest In Peace.

I remember Peg McCarthy as a warm, welcoming, down-to-earth person who made all guests in her house feel comfortable and appreciated. She had a good soul and was always ready to laugh. Peg was an original and although I saw her only occasionally over the years, I am grateful to have known her.

Peggy was such a lovely woman. I cannot begin to thank her for all of the help she gave Joe and me throughout the years. She enriched our lives. I'm very grateful for all of the time she spent with our children. They really enjoyed "performing" for Grandma Peg. It's such a tragedy that Alzheimer's stole her wonderful and enviable memory, but it couldn't steal her fabulous personality.

I'll always remember Peggy for her beautiful smile and enthusiasm for life and people. She always celebrated the good things that people accomplished and kept such a positive outlook on life. She loved to laugh and was one of the best story tellers I've ever heard. She could keep us sitting around her dinner table as she recounted stories of her earlier days with Joe and Dolores and Tommy and Virginia and Mardi and so many more. She had a great sense of humor and made their antics sound funny and adventurous. Peg was also a wonderful listener and her wise and practical advice could calm you down when life seemed crazy. At those dinners around the table, she often ended with a song which was a treat; she had a beautiful voice and loved to sing. She was a kind and generous person full of fun and life and spread that around to all the people she touched. I will miss her.

Peggy was a vivacious and endearing woman with an infectious laugh. She was sweet and always engaging. She will be sorely missed,

There are so many wonderful memories I have of Peg and, like many of you, I have so many wonderful memories of Peg recounting memories. She would always tell this funny story about when I was child. Peg was visiting with my mom and taking up my mom's attention and being a child who should be at the center of attention, I would ask my mom over and over again, "is it time for Peg to go home yet?" My memory isn't so much of this particular day- I barely remember it. Instead, the memory is of Peg smiling and laughing every time she told this story (and many others). I loved that. She was a wonderful and unique lady. May she rest in peace.

My thoughts are with the Tompkins' family. I am MaryAnne Osolin when Allan was my brother-in-law. I had tried to get a hold of Allan a couple of years ago. When I just looked for you and Allan, I discovered your lost. My best to you. This is why people should't leave loose ends for years. You can be only a few days late. Allan's step son, Dan, I had heard had said some untruths about my family and I wanted to correct this. I had good thoughts about Allen and I wanted him to hear this from me. Now the angels will have to wrisper this to him. I hope your family will make this long road of tears with family and friends for your support, Sincerely, MaryAnn Osolin maosolin@msn.com

Kathy and I will always remember this fun loving Lady. Our favorites as we talk about her were the Irish dinners that always included a song or two! Rest in peace lovely lady. Our condolences to all, hugs.

Kathy and I will always have very fond memories of this amazing lady, Peg. We enjoyed the the time we spent together and most memorable we think were the Irish dinners and her singing! May you rest in peace you lovely lady.

Memories of Peg will always go back to her friendship with her friend Virginia, my beloved mom. They grew up together in Brooklyn Hgts as BFFS from early childhood they held a bond not only as friends but more like sisters if you could hear them talk. As a child I was always entertained with them as they spoke about all their childhood escapades. They loved to talk about their teen years dating and bar hopping with Joe and my dad Walter. Lots of laughs and good times. Her son Jimmy became my mom's Godson and Joe became my Godfather. Peg and mom kept close through the years with hours of talk on the phone despite Pegs moves to SI and Oregon the bond was never broken. They talked for hours always like they had seen each other yesterday. Not everyone is fortunate enough to have a friendship like they shared in a lifetime. That tells you what kind of person Peg was and the bond they shared. When my mom died Peg with her amazing memory with only a call away kept my mom alive for me with her memories, at times when I needed the support that only a mom could give. I want to thank her for being a friend to me and keeping my mom's spirit alive. She had sense of humor and always some wise words to share, letting me know it was going to be ok. I know in my heart my mom was there to greet her along with her family and mine. May she rest in peace. I am comforted knowing her and Virginia will be dancing together and catching up on old times once again!

Our precious Peggy, is in the arms of our eternally loving Savior. A place He has prepared for her for a long time. A long wonderful life she lived. Bringing something that only an Irishman could bring, a bit of magic to everyone she touched. (And something that was passed along to you my dear Regina. So keep the McCarthy magic alive, as I know you do each and every day. You are loved. Pat
