Nils William Knapp

Nils William Knapp died October 16, 2013, of Parkinson's Disease. He was born December 14, 1934 in Harrington, Washington to F. William and Claire Knapp, both deceased, and was also preceded in death by his brother, Larry.

He graduated from Harrington High School in 1952, and attended the University of Washington and Yale University, where he became a Chinese linguist for the United States Air Force. Nils had a 31-year career in computer services with the Boeing Company, retiring in 1992.

Most important to Nils was his family. He is survived by his loving wife of 54 years, Marlene Clark Knapp of Davenport, WA, adoring daughter Sidney Pepple (Randy) and the true lights of his life, granddaughters Madeline and Claire.

Memorials to Nils will be held whenever friends and loved ones remember him, or come together and recall the special man he was.
