Donn Allan Strand

September 2, 1936 - August 31, 2018

Born in Greeley, Colorado, Donn lived in Seattle most of his life graduating from King's High and the University of Washington. He married Thelma Fredrickson in 1962 just eight days after pitching a perfect softball game in a Seattle Post-Intelligencer tournament. After some years with IBM company, he earned master's and PhD degrees in education. His UW Medical School position involved four years in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. He also worked with doctors from China and Mongolia who studied in Seattle.

He loved the Lord, loved his family, loved camping trips, loved golfing, loved singing in church choirs, loved baking cookies and brownies. He was kind, generous and had a great sense of humor.

He is survived by his wife, Thelma, sons Mark and David (Ann), daughter Karla Bennett (Jim), grandsons Zach and Charlie Strand, Andrew and Thomas Bennett and step-granddaughter Rachel Harvey; brothers Norm Strand (Grace) and Larry Strand (Betty) and sister Karen Divine (Dennis).

A memorial service will be held
