He touched so many people in the state of Washington, starting in Pine City, Tenino, Brewster, Oroville, Moses Lake, Spokane and Warden.
He was a coach, teacher, Principal, Superintendent of Schools and finally retired to be a rancher and raise cattle.
He was preceded in death by his wife Beverly (Leise) Sheahan of 24 years, grandson Kristopher Bell, parents Emmett and Vera, sister Mildred Anderson, brother Don and wife Jean (Phalon) Sheahan of 37 years.
He will be missed by so many including his five children, Gail and (Bob) Bell, Mike and (Doty) Sheahan, Sally and (Steve) Lloyd, Tim and (Patty) Phalon, Connie and (Dave) Langman; his nine grandchildren, 14 great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren; and his lifelong friend Don Shindler.
