August 16, 1999
On February 7, 1999, Mr. Simburger died peacefully at his home at Lake Joy. He was 83.
According to his attorney, Mr. Simburger had a long career as a merchant seaman. When not sailing the world's oceans, he maintained a cabin on the shore of Lake Joy and, ever the sailor, kept a small fleet of canoes, rowboats and other "vessels."
His gift to the Valley Recreation Association will help the group determine the marketability of a swimming pool and recreation center in the Lower Snoqualmie Valley. Those who would like to help the VRA build the dream of a pool and recreation center into a reality can contact them at P.O. Box 522, Carnation, 98014 or via e-mail at SnoVRA@aol.com.
