He and Annette enjoyed classic cars and attended a special car show in Winnemucca, Nevada each summer for 24 years. Bud loved history, especially the Civil War, and was always excited to tell you historic facts. He knew the complete story of the Kenmore Fire Department and had been compiling its history for many years.
Bud spent 42 years in the Fire Service. He started in the Kenmore Fire Department as a volunteer and was hired full-time in 1966 and worked his way through all the ranks and finished as Chief. The last 12 years before retirement were spent with the King County Fire Investigation Unit as a Fire Marshal.

There will be a Celebration of Life held on Sunday, Nov. 9 at 2 p.m. at the Nile Temple, 6601-244th St. S.W. Mountlake Terrace, WA 98043.

Larry Don Johnson, M.D.

johnsonLarry Johnson, age 68, passed away, with his usual calmness and grace, in the early morning hours of Monday, Oct. 13.
A guitar-playing Texas cowboy at heart, Larry was born in Texas to farmers Estelle and Oscar Johnson. He attended high school in Alpine, Texas, working the hot summers as a ranch hand at the Rattlesnake Mountain Ranch near Big Bend National Park. After winning a science scholarship, he attended college at Oklahoma University and then medical school at the University of Texas in San Antonio. He joined the army as a flight surgeon, and he (and his wonderful wife Donna) fell in love with Washington state upon being stationed at Madigan Army Hospital at Fort Lewis. He joined Glen Stuhring, MD at Woodinville Family Practice in 1983 and they started Woodinville Urgent Care.

Larry loved good coffee (he roasted his own with a heat gun in an old dog bowl!), fishing, hiking and camping, and solving engineering puzzles around the house. He mentored his three daughters with great love and wisdom, and adored his eight grandchildren.

“Dr. J” brought an intuitive understanding and gentleness to his practice of family medicine that won him much love and loyalty from generations of patients. He was, as his beloved nephew Kenny Johnson put it, “a man of science guided by spiritual teachings. He had a love of nature and appreciation of God’s handiwork. He believed goodness and kindness is good for the body and the soul.”

After being diagnosed with metastatic melanoma in the summer of 2013, just one month after retiring to Whidbey Island, Larry continued to live every day as though he would live another 20 years, with cheerfulness and song. He was deeply grateful to the team of oncologists who helped him keep his cancer at bay for longer than would have been possible just a few years ago.

He was preceded in death by his mother, father and two brothers, Marvin and Vernon.

He is survived by his devoted wife, Donna, who nursed him in his final illness; his three daughters (Shannon, Tamra and Kristin); eight grandchildren (Kristopher, Matthew, Elijah, Levi, Ryan, Aidan, Ashlyn and Thomas, plus one more on the way); and his much beloved extended family in Tenino, Washington and in Texas.

A celebration of Larry’s life will be held at Washington Cathedral (12300 Woodinville-Redmond Rd NE, Redmond, WA 98052) on Saturday, Oct. 25 at 1 p.m. Western attire welcome but not required.

Please feel free to share memories on Larry’s page at caringbridge.org. Donations in lieu of flowers may be sent to the American Cancer Society at www.cancer.org, or a charity of your choice.
