G. Ralph Van Noy, age 91, passed away August 3 at Lake Vue Gardens after a long illness.
He is survived by his loving wife, Shirley of 67 years; son, Jim and Mary Van Noy of Woodinville; daughter, Sandra and Mike Michaels of Bothell; daughter, Stacey and Tony Rushent of Bothell and daughter-in-law, Brenda Mouw of Bellevue; 7 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren.
He was an Eastside resident since 1923. He was boiler department head of Lake Washington Shipyards and Lake Union Drydocks for 46 years and a member of Boilermakers Local#104.
He retired in 1973 and moved to Canterbury Square in Woodinville where he had many happy years. He loved to fish and hunt, and his grandchildren remember that he "could fix anything."
The family thanks Lake Vue Gardens for their loving care over the past two years.
At his request there will be no service.
Remembrances in his name may be sent to a charity of choice.
