Gary Rhodehouse passed away Dec. 27, 2020, at his home in Washougal, WA. He was born to Opal and Kay Rhodehouse in Vancouver, WA, on Oct. 27, 1946, the second of three children.
After attending Hudson’s Bay High School, Gary joined the Army, where he spent four years traveling overseas.

Gary enjoyed spending time in the kitchen, cooking and entertaining family and friends. His incredible “Mulligan Stew” was always a big hit! Fishing was always on Gary’s list of favorite activities. “Alaska” proved to be an all-time favorite place of his. His sense of humor and big heart was enjoyed by all who knew him.
