He was a highly skilled carpenter for over 40 years, and operated his own construction business for 25 years.
He is survived by his devoted wife of almost 49 years, Luwana; children, Steve (Nancy), Jared (Elizabeth), Amy (Brian) Slimak and Zebulon (Nichole); grandchildren, Blayze, Avery and Braxton Slimak; siblings, Gene (Stella), Rick (Trina), Diana Newbury, JoAnn Williams and Jan Seely; aunt, Wilma (Jack) Clark; and numerous nieces and nephews.
The family expresses their heartfelt thanks to Dr. Henry Li and his staff at The PolyClinic, the team of doctors and staff at Swedish Medical Center (Seattle); Dr. Steven Adam and staff at Providence Regional Cancer Partnership (Everett) for their excellent care.
