Davis C. Barrett, 1949-2014 Davis Corwin Barrett, 64, died in his Port Townsend WA home April 12, 2014. Barrett was a leading Alaska purse seiner for some 30 years, usually fishing with his three daughters - Allison, Hannah and Ilsa, now in their 20s - and his wife of 30 years, Adrienne Ely. Described as a Renaissance man, Barrett was a respected voice for commercial fishermen, serving 20 years on the board of the Southeast Alaska Seiners Association (SEAS) and the Seiner Reserve Insurance Board. Said Bobby Thorstenson Jr., SEAS executive director, "Davis was a high liner. One of the best there ever was. He bowed to Tlingit and Haida tradition while learning commercial fishing from great men and friends. He was a true high liner who did not fudge lines or crowd others." Barrett helped create the Pacific Salmon Treaty and ensured sustainable fisheries around the Tongass National Forest. Barrett was born in Seattle in 1949 to Beach and Jan Sorensen Barrett. He graduated from Lakeside High School in 1968 attending college at Middlebury in Vermont, WSU and Seattle University in Washington State. He started fishing at 16 and became a skipper at 26. He married Adrienne in 1983 and moved to Port Townsend in 1990. Due to health issues, he retired from fishing in 2010, selling the Glacier Bay. Survivors include his wife, daughters and siblings: Tom Barrett (Jan), Portland OR; Judith Barrett, San Francisco CA; Kate Nunn (Remmel) and Ellen Dudley (Matthew) of New York. His parents preceded him. An afternoon service and potluck at family property near Seabeck WA is set for April 26th at 1 PM. Please email alberdelli@gmail.com for details. Read Obituary

Zach lived in Lynden with his Mom and spent time weekly in Bellingham with his Dad. Zach was born in Boston Massachusetts on October 1, 2007 where much of his extended family still resides. The day Zach was born Boston was celebrating the Red Sox winning the pennant and Zach's life while short, is something to celebrate. Zach was a shining light who lit up anyone who met him. Zach knew no strangers, every person he saw was greeted and chatted up and left with a smile. Zach had many friends in his kindergarten class at the Bernice Vossbeck Elementary school. Zach enjoyed learning Tai Kwan Do and was quick to correct anyone who called it Karate that it was NOT a Karate class but Tai Kwan Do. Zach adored his three-year old sister, Gracie. Gracie's happiness was very important to Zach and he always put her first. Zach and Gracie's love for each other was evident to all. Zach is survived by his parents, sister, John's children, Elizabeth, Maddie, & Kayla (whom he called his sisters); step-brothers, Colter & Travis Andrews; grandparents, Patricia & Christopher Whalen, James & Carol Conzo, Karen & Dave Stanley; aunts and uncles Kerriann (godmother) and Ryan DeMoranville, Dawn and Ed (godfather) O'Neil, Kimberly and Dan Stafford, Christina and Arthur D'Amico, Sarah Conzo, Michael Whalen, Matthew Whalen and honorary aunt & uncle Jennifer & Kristopher Parker and numerous cousins.

Arthur Wood "Bill" DuBois, Jr. age 95, died peacefully at his home at The Willows on Saturday morning, March 22, 2014. Bill was delivered by his grandfather, Dr. Albert F. Merrell, to Arthur Wood DuBois and Rena Merrell in Hallstead, PA. He, his parents and his three sisters traveled between life on the farm to foreign service destinations in Poland, Columbia and Iran, just to name a few. He graduated from Loomis Chaffee School in Windsor, CT and attended Cornell University until WWII intervened. He was preceded in death by his wife Alice "Sandra" Everill DuBois and granddaughter Kate DuBois. He is survived by his daughters, Judith Andress of Bellingham, WA, Pamela Davis of Melbourne, FL, Merrell Blackwell of Palestine, TX, Tracy DuBois of San Diego, CA, sons James T. DuBois and Arthur Wood DuBois III of San Diego, CA, 17 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren. The consummate aviator, Bill "caught the flying bug" in 1938, in a J-3 cub. Subsequently, he flew for the Marines during WWII in the South Pacific in unarmed C 47's (DC-3's) on evacuation and resupply missions. After the war, he joined Panagra Airlines (PanAmerican/Grace). He and other pioneering pilots flew DC-3's carrying cargo and passengers through the Andes passes before the days of pressurized cabins and civilian radar. He retired from Braniff in 1978 with 31,000 hours of flight time spanning DC-3's to DC-8's via 707's and 727's. From his "flight deck" at The Willows, the door to which was always open, he could and did, until the day he died, pilot any airplane into any airport on his computer flight simulator. The DC-3 was HIS airplane. "In flying as in life, history is important. We learn from our predecessors mistakes". Later in life, Bill's adventures became more about those of the human spirit. He had an exuberant love of life, family and history as well as aviation and a clarity of faith that illuminated every conversation whether it was over a martini at Bob's, in his prayer group, with friends at The Willows or on WTA buses 3 and 4. He saw God in every single person and was curious about what made us all the same no matter where we were from or what religion we followed. He'd pop into a bus seat, turn to a fellow passenger and say, "Hi, I'm Bill, where are you from?" He shared contentment with his journey, confidence in his destination and a deep resonating faith. He touched many lives and will be greatly missed. In 'Behind the Façade and a Peek at Panagra', A.W. DuBois wrote, "I thank the Lord for the gift of my life." A Burial Eucharist will be held on Tuesday, April 15th at 2pm at St. Paul's Episcopal Church. A reception and celebration of Bill's memory will follow. At his request, please contribute to Hospice of Whatcom County in lieu of flowers. You may share memories with the family at www.westfordfuneralhome.com . Read Obituary

Jean Marie Erickson, age 90, passed away peacefully, surrounded by her family at St. Joseph Hospital on Tuesday, April 8th at 3:00 PM. Originally from Titusville PA, she graduated with the Colestock High School class of 1941 and then went on to Nursing School where she trained at Spencer Hospital in Meadville. Jean entered the Army Nurse Corps in 1945, and volunteered for overseas duty which fulfilled both her desire to serve and to travel. She was an adventurous and fun loving spirit that loved being on the water, and was proud of the fact that she had never been seasick. She loved the sea as is evidenced by the amazing display of shells and sea life that grace her entryway and throughout her home. She lived a sailors life in her youth, but eventually met and married Ted Erickson, a Merchant Marine that shared her love of both sea and travel. They made their home in Seattle and soon relocated with their only son John to Edmonds, WA. Ted passed away in 1986, and Jean sold their house to go and live in a condo with a view of the Puget Sound where she resided for the next 20 years so she could travel freely, maintain all of her long term friendships from "the neighborhood", and have easy access as she aged to her beloved waterfront. Jean relocated yet again in 2012 to Bellingham to be close to her family. She made her new home at Spring Creek on E. Bakerview where, in her usual fashion, maintained her independence, made new friends, and participated in everything. She is survived by her only son, John William Erickson, her daughter-in-law Kim Erickson and her granddaughter, Jennifer Lynn Erickson. Jean is also survived by her two sisters Pat O'dea and Rita Gifford, along with their children and grandchildren, all of whom she dearly loved . We could not have hoped for a better, more loving or supportive Mom, Grandmother (Mom Mom) or Mother-in-law. The "Erickson Family Four" may only be three now, but our fourth will be forever in our hearts, and at our table for the (non) traditional Erickson Family Thanksgiving Crab Feed. In her usual head strong way, Jean has requested that there should be no Memorial Service and with respect to her wishes, there is none planned at this time. Read Obituary
