Paul Christian Thoreen
Dec. 7, 1951 - Jan. 26, 2011

Paul said goodbye to this world and his family after a brave fight with cancer at the age of 59. Paul was born in Everett, the third of eight children, to Lillian and Harold Thoreen. He grew up in Everett and graduated in 1970 from Everett High School. Paul's varied life included adventures on commercial fishing boats in Alaska, many years as an optical dispenser, and later as a golf course manager. Paul was lovingly cared for in his later years by daughter, Anne Marie and son-in-law, Josh Eerkes. The role that brought him greatest joy was as father, grandfather, and brother to his lively family.
Paul continues to live in the hearts of his mother, Lillian (95 years old); brothers, Harold (Suzanne), Arn (Fran), Bryce, and Bruce; sister, Chris; and brothers, Larry and Richard (Dianne); his daughters, Anne Marie, Angie (Justin), and Toni (John); numerous nephews; and nieces; and his eight grandchildren, Emma, Ethan, Jordan, Jaycob, Caleb, Ryan, Nathan, and Andrew.
A memorial service to celebrate Paul's life will be held February 26 in Kennewick, Washington.
