Ronald DeQuilettes Obituary

Ronald P. DeQuilettes, 52, died of injuries sustained in a March 2014 mudslide in Oso, Wash.

On the morning of the mudslide, Ron DeQuilettes, an electrical contractor who also did blacktop installation work, was to come to Larry and Sandy Miller's new dream house near a bend in the Stillaguamish River to give an estimate for a new driveway. Greg Gorsuch, a friend of all three, introduced them to one another at the Seattle Home Show in February. The Millers also were killed in the mudslide.

He wrote in an email to The Seattle Times: "I imagine the three of them, Ron, Larry and Sandy all standing out in the front of the house facing the river and the beautiful mountains on the other side while reviewing the possibilities."
