Hanson, Richard LeRoy  
Richard LeRoy Hanson, born April 16, 1949, passed away September 24, 2015, with his wife of twenty nine years, Linda Hanson and his four incredible daughters by his side: Jeline (Jim) Upshaw, Danelle (Spence) Happer, Rochelle (Josh) Dugan, and Daclyn Hanson (Kramer Yuly). For sixty six years Dick lived and loved completely. Being a grandfather made him so proud: Cameron Hanson; Tanner Hartzell-Hanson and Alexis Peterson; Stephanie, Kathleen, Taylor, and Rylee Dugan; and Zach and Megan Happer. Dick retired from Kimberly Clark Paper after 35 years of service, enjoying retirement by joining pool and dart leagues, reading, and collecting coins. Sunrises, sunsets, and hummingbirds always brought him joy. Everett was his home for 65 years, a place he always called God's Country. Dick was a friend to all - sharing his approachable smile, sense of humor, and random knowledge of all things, often surprising us all! Unconditional, fierce, and loyal is how Dick loved. He believed not everyone is lucky enough to be loved even once in a lifetime and he was fortunate to have been loved four times. Then he had four new loves in his daughters. Private immediate family services were held on Port Gardner Bay Thursday, October 1, 2015. Our family sends a heartfelt thank you to the compassionate caregivers at Hospice during the past several weeks. In lieu of flowers we ask memorials be made in Dick's name to Providence Hospice of Snohomish County. Dick…Dad…you filled your heart with love, and ours will forever be filled with yours. In his own words, "I guess I rode the pony too hard". "This is me saying goodbye to you…bye you".

Obituaries from the Past Week

Harrison, Max Pritchard  
Max lost his courageous battle with cancer on September 23, 2015. He was born on January 21, 1935, in Fort Wayne, Indiana to Madelyn and Max W. Harrison. After graduation from Southside High School, his excitement for art led him to Fort Wayne Art School until he was called into the service where he spent ten years in the US Air Force in Amarillo, Texas. Blessed with a beautiful singing voice, he considered becoming a professional singer, however upon discharge from the service, he was eager to finish his education and received his Bachelor of Science degree from West Texas State. He received many educational honors including the Phi Delta Kappa Outstanding Education Student Award and the Schlefley Anderson award as the outstanding graduating senior. He was Vice-President of the Alpha Chi National Collegiate Honor Society and Kappa Delta Phi, National Education Honor Fraternity, as well as a member of the Phi Alpha National History Honor Fraternity. He was a voracious reader his entire life and read every book he could find on the Civil War. After graduation he briefly taught US history at Amarillo High School. Having been a medic in the service, he then joined GD Searle Pharmaceutical Co. transferring him to Dallas, Texas and San Francisco, Calif. He attended night law school at Golden Gate University School of Law and received his JD degree in 1981. He clerked for Robert Mueller, assistant US attorney in San Francisco. He later took the Washington State bar exam and started practicing in Everett, Wash. in 1982 specializing in criminal defense. He also served as Judge Pro-Tem in both Juvenile and Superior Court. Known as always being elegantly dressed and commanding the courtroom with his wit, charisma and sense of humor, he had the greatest respect for his profession. Upon every trial victory, he called Penny to sing the Michigan fight song. He always saw the best in his clients and urged them to better their lives by finishing their education. He was a strong advocate for youth at risk and the mentally ill. He was happiest during football season and spent many fun Saturdays at Husky Stadium with Penny and good friends. He also loved movies, jazz and his many sun filled trips to Mexico. One of his passions was cycling and completing the STP at age 55 was a proud accomplishment. Max was a member of Evergreen Kiwanis Club, the Everett Golf & Country Club, the Bellingham Yacht Club & the College Club. He was preceded in death by his parents; brothers, Morgan, Dennis and sister, Maxine. He is survived by his loving wife, Penny; daughters, Rebecca and Brenda; and three grandchildren; his stepchildren, Brooke and Scott Madsen. We are so grateful for the compassionate care Max received from Dr. Ernest "Chappie" Conrad III and Dr. Gabrielle Berger and their dedicated team of professionals. Also, a special thank you to Wendy Cochinella, his devoted and loyal legal assistant who managed the office, found counsel to cover cases and soothe the fears of Max's clients in his absence. A celebration of Max's life will be held on Saturday, October 17, 2015, from 2-5 at the Everett Golf & Country Club. In lieu of flowers remembrances may be made to Compass Health or The Gospel Mission.
