Oct. 26, 1920 - Feb. 7, 2015

Arthur Buell Ish, Jr. of Carnation, Washington passed away peacefully on Feb. 7, 2015 surrounded by his loving wife and family. He was 94 years of age, having been born October 26, 1920 in Winters, California to Arthur Buell Ish, Sr. and Gladys Ish (née Gladys Izelda Brinck). He is survived by Nell, his wife of 59 years, his daughter Lisa Galindo of Elko, Nevada, his son Arthur Buell Ish III of Carnation, Washington, daughter JoNell Taylor of Salt Lake City, Utah, his son Samuel Ish of Duvall, Washington, son Ted Ish of Carnation, Washington, 13 grandchildren, and 12 great grandchildren.
From a young age, Art enjoyed model airplanes and photography. After graduating from Winters High School he attended UC Davis for a year then moved to Burbank California to work on the P-38 assembly line for Lockheed Aircraft Corp. from 1940 to 1943. He was inducted into the U.S. Army April 17, 1943 and served primarily in France, behind the lines rebuilding the electrical infrastructure. He was shot out of a telephone pole and spent five months in the hospital recovering from a knee injury, receiving an honorable discharge in September, 1945. He entered UC Berkeley joining the Theta Delta Chi fraternity and went on to graduate in June 1949 with a Bachelor’s in industrial engineering.

At that point he began a life-long career with Link-Belt/FMC, and was transferred to Lawrence, Kansas where he was introduced to Nell Middleton of Kentucky who was teaching at the University of Kansas. The two were married Dec. 26, 1955 in Oakland, Kentucky. They welcomed their first child, Lisa, into their home just prior to Art’s transfer to Pocatello, Idaho in 1960 where he would work for FMC until retirement in 1982. After a short time back in California to care for Art’s mother, Art and Nell moved to the Lake Joy area of Carnation in 1992 to again be close to family. There they attended the Tolt Congregational Church.

The Ish household was always a happy place full of children. In addition to their own five children, three of whom were adopted, there was always a foster child or two in the Pocatello home, and eventually grandchildren. Art was always using his engineering talent in fun and creative ways, for example, converting a laundry van into the family camper and constructing a ski tow on the family property in Idaho. Art will be remembered as a loyal, hard-working man who loved travel and getting to know people of all nationalities. He loved nothing more than hearing about someone’s path to the United States and learning a few words of their native language.

Memorial services will be held Sunday, March 1 at 2 p.m., Tolt Congregation Church in Carnation, Washington.

Feb. 19. 1946 - Feb. 4, 2015

Born in Culver City, California. Raised in Woodinville. Graduated Bothell High School, 1964. Attended the University of Washington until drafted into the army serving in Vietnam. Upon returning to the Seattle area he started a family raising his daughter Wendy and son Erik and was blessed with two grandchildren, Elizabeth and Anthony. After losing his first wife to cancer he met the love of his life and soul-mate Gail Vanden Akker. They spent the next 23 years building their life together, traveling, constructing their dream home (A Thing of Beauty) in Sequim and making friends everywhere they went. Ted started his working career as one of the original artisans at the Pike Place Market specializing in leather goods. He then went on to become a master of any trade that he delved into. His creativity and the love of woodworking allowed him to turn simple pieces of wood into what would become his signature radius masterpieces. His analytical mind allowed him to tackle any problem that came his way. He never dwelt on the problem, only the solution. He was kindhearted, patient and always willing to share his vast knowledge with anyone who was willing to listen. He was a gentle “magic man” who loved music, dancing, warm beaches, astronomy, reading and a relentless quest for learning. Being with friends and family was always special to him. He is survived by his wife; two brothers, Tom and Terry; a daughter; son; two grandchildren; and hundreds of friends. He will be greatly missed but never forgotten. The universe hit the jackpot the day he left this Earth. The family wishes to thank Volunteer Hospice, Home Health and Joan from Caregivers of Sequim. He wished to have his body donated to medical research.
