Working with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Dredging) and NOAA (Ocean Floor Surveying) had him traveling all over the USA and out on the ocean, which he loved dearly. He is survived by his adoring family in Portland OR, Helvetia OR & Clackamas OR. A loving service will be held at 2pm, Friday 6/15/18 at Hughes-Ransom, 576 12th St., Astoria. A graveside service will follow at Greenwood Cemetery, in Astoria (all are invited).
