Don passed peacefully into the presence of the Lord at age 90 on May 24, 2013 in Edmonds, WA. He's survived by his loving wife of 65 years, Lois; three loving children: Pam Paris, Don Paris Jr., and Jim (Marcia) Paris; and their families
Donald F. Paris
including nine grandchildren and eight great-grand-children.
As a young man, he served in the Army Air Force in Hawaii. Don was well-respected in the Edmonds community for the past 57 years. He was a top salesman in the real estate business for 40 years, eventually opening Don Paris Realty in Edmonds. He was a member of the Elks Club for 60+ years, and a charter member of the Lynnwood Elks. He sang with the Sound Singers of Edmonds, volunteered at the Edmonds Sr. Center Food Bank, and joined the Edmonds branch of the VFW. Always willing to help those in need, either fixing, building, remodeling, or cleaning up; Don served his Lord through his walk more than his talk. He was blessed with many talents. Don was a man with a huge heart, and will be missed, but never forgotten.
A memorial celebrating his life will be held at the Edmonds United Methodist Church in Edmonds, 828 Caspers Street, Edmonds, on Saturday, June 22, 2013, at 2 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Lynnwood Elks Club or the Edmonds Senior Center. Share memories at
