SHEAHAN, Ray (Age 89) On August 17th, 2015 we lost our wonderful, loving Dad and decorated WWII Honored Marine (hi you).

He touched so many people in the state of Washington, starting in Pine City, Tenino, Brewster, Oroville, Moses Lake, Spokane and Warden.

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.
