Bean, James R.  
Beloved husband, father, grandfather and brother, James Rea Bean, 84, of Bellingham, Wash. passed away on June 27, 2016. He was born in Oil Hill, Kansas in 1931 to parents Roy and Kitty Joyce Bean, and later moved to Las Cruces, N.M. where he began violin lessons and hunted and explored the desert country with his father and brothers which began a lifelong love of both music and the outdoors. He attended New Mexico State University and received a BA in Music Performance, participating in the ROTC Program. After graduation he served in the US Air Force, stationed in Korea. Upon returning he was transferred to McChord Air Force Base. While there he joined the Tacoma Symphony where he was introduced to his future wife, Emily Walters, a fellow violinist. Emily and Jim were married on June 10, 1956, in Olympia, Washington. Jim and Emily were charter members of the Cascade Symphony where they sat together for 30 years on the first stand of second violins. Jim began his long career teaching music in the Edmonds School District as well as teaching private violin students. Today Jim's work and influence lives on as his students carry on the powerful and positive impact of his teaching. Jim's love of the art of violin playing carried him through his life and was the foundation of his deepest connections to the people he loved. His greatest gift to each of his children was igniting a lifelong love for playing the violin in orchestras, quartets and campgrounds around the country. Upon moving to Bellingham in his later years his musical connection led him to his second wife, Ruth Grainger, whom he married on July 17, 2012. Despite the limitations resulting from Parkinson's disease, he played his violin daily giving great enjoyment to residents and caregivers at the Mount Baker Care Center. He is survived by his brother, Sam Bean of Audubon, Pa.; children, Nancy (Lloyd Smith) Bean of Philadelphia, Pa., David (Patty) Bean, of Bellingham, Wash, and Joyce (Brian) Lewis of Cincinnati, Ohio, and grandchildren, Nicholas Bean, Mikah Bean, Joseph Stanichar, and Emily Lewis. Music, mountains, and his family were his life's joy and inspiration. A Celebration of Life will be held at First Congregational United Church of Christ, 2401 Cornwall Ave., Bellingham, WA 98225 on Saturday, July 2, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that a contribution in his memory be made either to First Congregational United Church of Christ of Bellingham or Washington Trails Association at 2019 Third Ave., Suite 100, Seattle, WA 98121.

Berg, Brian Lee  
"How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard." – Winnie the Pooh. Brian Lee Berg passed away June 17, 2016, at home with family by his side, after fighting cancer. We're blessed to have had such a free-spirited, fun-loving, adventurous, generous, positive man in our lives. Beloved father to Rochelle, he could be counted on to go all out; whether it was tickling her baby hands over his whiskers to make her giggle, to flying her to Boston as a teenager to see Pink in concert. The voice of every Winnie the Pooh character entertained Rochelle and many a small child as years have gone by. He was an avid Harley rider, skier and snowmobiler. With an adventurous spirit he bungee jumped, parachuted and once using special equipment, reached the peak of Mt. Baker on his snowmobile. He was a season ticket-holder "12" for many years. A social guy, he was often the life of the party. His long aerospace industry career started in engineering, moved to sales and marketing executive positions, and ended due to health in his final role as president of Volant. Brian embraced the traveling that came with his job. From safaris in South Africa to sailing in Hong Kong, he lived life! Born in Grande Prairie, AB Canada in 1959. Moved to Lacombe in 1967, finished high school in 1978, then earned an engineering degree from Walla Walla University in 1984. He leaves daughter, Rochelle Berg, and her mother, Chalann Berg; mother and father, Rose and Delvin Berg; brother, Gerald (Kellie) Berg; sisters, Brenda (Rick) Proud and Sherilyn (Wally) Quirk; Rhonda Dupuis, Mackenzie Russo, numerous nieces, nephews, and countless friends. No services at his request; a celebration of life will take place in July. In Lieu of flowers, donations to Providence Hospice or charity of your choice. "Goodbye? Oh no, please. Can't we go back to page one and do it all over again?"- Winnie the Pooh

Campbell, Dennis Earl  
Dennis (Denny) Campbell, longtime resident of Lynnwood, Wash. passed away on May 29, 2016. Denny was born on March 28, 1931, to Harry and Leona Campbell in Port Townsend, Wash. He spent his childhood growing up in both Port Townsend and Port Ludlow (when it was still a lumber town). The waters of Puget Sound were his oyster; he was always spending as much time as possible throughout his life on the beaches and on the water. After high school, Denny attended Washington State College (WSU) in Pullman. He soon realized that he was not ready for college, and decided to enlist in the Navy to "sail the world". However, the only time that he was on a ship was between San Francisco and Oakland, Calif. After he was discharged from the Navy, he enrolled at Eastern Washington College of Education (EWSU) where he earned a degree in Education. There, he met his future wife, Joella Northrup. Denny and Joella were married on August 24, 1957. After graduating from college, Denny and Joella, along with daughter, Julie, relocated to Edmonds, Wash. where Denny began a long career teaching Biology along with other classes. First at Edmonds Junior High, then Mountlake Terrace and Woodway High Schools. He retired from teaching in 1993. While teaching, Denny had the opportunity to travel to both Africa and the Galapagos Islands, giving him lifelong memories! After Denny retired, he began a short career at Immunex in Seattle working in their laboratories. Denny was always passionate about sailing and he worked hard to realize his dream when in 1967 he bought a Tahiti Ketch sailboat named "Koloa". Denny, Joella and Julie sailed the sailboat around Puget Sound and up into the waters between Vancouver Island and British Columbia. Soon another crew member, Jack, was also added to the crew. Denny enjoyed lots of other activities as well. He enjoyed being around family members and was always willing to try new things. He was a kid at heart and really enjoyed sharing things with his grandchildren, Tim, Devon and Penny Jo. Denny is survived by his loving wife of 58 years, Joella; daughter, Julie Meanor (Michael), son, Jack Campbell (Wynne), along with his three grandchildren, Tim Meanor, Devon Campbell and Penny Jo Campbell; nephew, Jeff Sullivan and niece, Joyce Noren. Denny is preceded in death by both of his parents, Harry and Leona Campbell, and his only sibling, Sally Sullivan. A celebration of life will be held on Sunday, July 24, 2016, at 2:00 p.m. at the Edmonds Unitarian Church at 8104 224th St SW Edmonds. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations in memory of Denny be made to your favorite charity. Vote for the Experienced Woman!
