Patricia T. Milton, passed away on Thursday, April 18, 2013 at her home in Poulsbo, Washington. She was 68 years of age.

Pat was born on July 4, 1944 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana to Fred and Ellen Thebert. She moved to Michigan until the age of seven and then onto the Seattle area, finally settling in Buckley in 1959. She lived on a farm and loved riding her horse Ginger. She competed in several horse racing events and at one time held the state record in the keyhole race.

John Edward Dustin, (“Joe Dad”) passed away on Wednesday, April 17, 2013 in Poulsbo, Washington surrounded by his loving family.

He was born August 23, 1929 in Fairbanks, Alaska but grew up in Seattle. The former Seattle Prep student body president graduated from University of Santa Clara and served in the Army before working for GMAC in finance until retirement.

Joe Dad loved life. His greatest gift was his absolute, unwavering, positive attitude. He would always say “It’s going to be a good day!” He met every challenge with unrelenting optimism. His radiant personality, childlike loving spirit and infectious sense of humor gave us many belly laughs. He was kind, big hearted and loved by everyone who knew him.

His favorite pastime was sitting on the deck off Sandy Hook enjoying the beautiful view. He would often say, “I’m the luckiest guy alive!” He was devoted to his Catholic faith, and enjoyed fishing, golfing, music, acting classes and, oh yes, candy bars!
He leaves behind his best friend Ginny Hughes and her children- Skip, Julie, Sam and her grandchild Katie; his sisters- Harriett Sierer, Jean Dodge and Vicky Sapp; his children- Erin, John, Matt, Marty, Cathrine, Kerry; his grandchildren- Jansen, Hayley, Tyler, Raquel, Cole, Ashley and Cameron as well as 4 great grandchildren. He was predeceased by his son Christopher; and parents Muriel and Charles Dustin.
We love you Johnny Dustin; you will be greatly missed!

Ronald John Berry, died unexpectedly on April 13th while bicycling the Discovery Trail in Port Angeles.

He was born on at the Winslow Clinic on May 28th, 1950. He graduated Bainbridge HS in 1968, earned a BS in Physics from Seattle U in 1972 and a Masters in Nuclear Engineering from the University of Washington in 1974.

His first job was at a nuclear plant in Richland WA where he stayed for four years. He met his wife Kristy shortly before he moved back to Bainbridge Island. They were married soon after starting his next job at Pan American World Services, a facilities engineering division of the airline at the Bangor base.

During this time, Ron took advantage of the benefits of working (however peripherally) for an airline and travelled the world while enduring, with humor, his wife’s hysterical fear of flying. They traveled to Hong Kong, Australia, several times to London, Copenhagen and Jamaica; basically as much as they could afford on their limited budget. Ron loved to travel but he especially loved being upgraded to first class where he availed himself of EVERYTHING that was offered.

They bought a home on Grow Avenue where his first son, Aaron was born in 1987. Two and a half years later, their second son Max was born. Between births, he changed employment to Harris Group, a Seattle engineering firm. Ron loved the large scope multi-year projects he initially worked on. It was there he was able to refine his interpretation of work/life balance, which was essentially work until the job is done to “right” and if there is time left over and you are not too tired - then have some fun.

His passion for engineering essentially defined him. He found great satisfaction in doing anything mechanical, which ranged anywhere from changing oil in his car or motorcycle to designing his own septic system. In more recent years, he combined this with his passion for motorcycles, most notably the complete rebuild of his first motorcycle, a 1977 Honda CB750 SS. He disassembled, refurbished and reassembled the entire motorcycle. Since a manual written in English did not exist, he was compelled to create his own by documenting each step using photographs of each step of the disassembly. His mastery of the use of the checklist came in particularly handy during this job and his children will forever remember this particular skill. We have always recognized his patience and persistence but even we were shocked when, at first attempt, the Honda fired up and ran. Ron thrived on projects such as these, and family and close friends will agree that he was always happiest tinkering in his “shop”.

He was probably one of the few motorcyclists commuting on the Bainbridge ferry run present all winter - rain or snow. Ron spent many weekends when the weather was good taking off on a ride, either with a son, his motorcycle “buddies” or on his own. He looked forward to his semi-annual motorcycle rides with about as much joy as one could ever detect from him because he was also the master of understated enthusiasm. His enjoyment was always subject to some code book of interpretation. Three things which always made him very happy and did not require interrogation were – spending time with anyone in his family, riding his motorcycle, and going to Lake Chelan.

Hiking, bicycling, skiing, camping, fishing, boating, yak pak kayaking, paddle boarding, snorkeling – you name it – if it was doing something outdoors he was there or wanted to be. Not much deterred doing something fun. There were many adventures which began on a shoestring, Clampett-style where memories were made and lessons learned. He took many trips to Blake Island in a leaking sixteen foot skiff loaded with the family, a lab, and full camping gear with two inches of freeboard and a dock full of disbelieving onlookers.

Ron was full of ironies – he was kind and exceedingly gentle but coveted his firearms. He was a maddeningly cautious and safe driver and yet was known to “open up” the throttle on his exceedingly powerful Yamaha FZ1 motorcycle given some open road, leaving his son in the dust. He could be virtually silent for hours but out of nowhere make a single comment that would leave you doubled up from laughter.

He leaves a legacy of principled and moral living for his wife and children that will undoubtedly serve to direct them for the rest of their lives. He was able to convey moral strength and principles, typically by example, but there was never any doubt with regard to the right path.

The funeral is at St. Cecilia’s Catholic Church on April 27th at 10am. A Celebration of his life will immediately follow at The Manor House in Lynnwood Center. We would especially like to invite any of his friends who would share a story to join us at the celebration. Memorial Contributions can be made to the American Diabetes Association.

Gladys Rone Cleven, born July 28, 1920, was the second of four children born to John and Kristine Rone of Seattle.

Upon graduation from Ballard High School she worked at the Pacific Telephone and Telegraph Company before marrying Richard (Dick) Murray Cleven. They lived briefly in Bremerton and Seattle before Dick accepted a teaching job at Bainbridge High School. The couple then settled on Bainbridge Island where they lived for over 50 years.

At age 8 Gladys received a violin and playing it became a source of pleasure throughout her life. In her younger years she played at Denny Park Lutheran Church in Seattle and also enjoyed playing at the Sorrento Hotel, at special events and on various radio programs. After her marriage and move to Bainbridge, she played at Bainbridge Bible Chapel and Keyport Bible Church, both of which she attended as long as her health allowed. Over the past number of years, the highlight of her week was to play with a music group in Brownsville.

In early 2009 Gladys suffered a series of small strokes. Although she recovered, from that time on she was unable to move the violin bow across the strings correctly. She had played continually for 80 years!

As well as playing her violin, Gladys loved visiting thrift stores and going to garage sales. Her home was filled with many of her “finds” and countless friends and acquaintances were the recipients of the treasures she found. She also loved being in the outdoors and spent most days working in her yard; keeping the weeds at bay and making trails through the woods near her home.

With her husband’s health declining, he and Gladys moved into assisted living at Montclair Park in Poulsbo 7 years ago. In 2009, soon after her husband passed away, she was able to just “move down the hall” to Haven Crest, their memory care facility. The family would especially like to thank their staff for the exceedingly kind and compassionate care Gladys has received over the past years.

After a recent hip fracture and the onset of pneumonia, Gladys spent a week in hospital. With hospice support however, she was able to leave the hospital and “come home” to Haven Crest, where she was lovingly cared for until, with her family at her side, she passed peacefully into the presence of Jesus on April 11, 2013.

She is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, Loren and Donna Cleven of Bainbridge Island; her grandchildren, Coleen (Matthew) Turner and Kathryn Cleven, also of Bainbridge Island; her sister and brother-in-law, Donna and Fred Monte of Camano Island; along with numerous nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband as well as her brothers Melvin and Kenneth along with their wives, Martha and Lorraine.
In 2010 Gladys thoroughly enjoyed her 90th birthday celebration at Montclair. Thank you to so many family and friends who shared that special time with her. A family graveside service took place April 16th at Bonney-Watson’s Washington Memorial Park cemetery.

Kenneth Robert Schuricht, passed away March 23, 2013. Kenneth was born on September 5, 1945 in Los Angeles to Walter and Alma Schuricht. He graduated from East Bakersfield High School in 1963. In 1970 he graduated from Cal Poly at San Luis Obispo. Ken's degree in Print Management brought him to the Pacific Northwest where he worked for many years with United Graphics Inc. In time Ken was transferred to another division, Bank Check Supply. He was ultimately promoted to plant manager and then to the position of General Manager of the Central Division. His work took him to new places over a period of many years, including Centralia, Walnut Creek and Memphis. Ken finally made his way back to Seattle where his last printing job was with Heath Printers.

In May 1989 Ken met his future wife, Mary Hall, on a blind date which had been arranged by mutual friends. They were forever after together and were married in June, 1991. Early on in their courtship Ken talked about his dream of having a hardware store in the country. They never let that vision leave them and they purchased Winslow Hardware in October 1994.

Ken and Mary loved fixing up the old store and . renamed it Winslow Hardware and Mercantile. Ken loved helping people with their projects, always taking time to make sure that they got the right answer. If he wasn't sure, his quick and fine intelligence helped him to create a solution. During the hardware store years, Ken and Mary traveled to many hardware shows throughout the United States and never tired of meeting new people and
learning new things.

In 2005 Ken closed the hardware store and went to work with Mary at Winslow Paint Company which they had opened in December 2001. Again they put their passion into helping people and in living their lives together.

Ken loved to travel. In his last days on this earth he told Mary that he had wished that they could have done more. He was fortunate to make several trips to Japan and New Zealand. They also had special memories from time spent in Greece, Spain, France, Australia and Fiji. Ken was a passionate cyclist, riding the hills of Bainbridge Island with his dear biking buddies. He rode the Seattle to Portland bike ride (STP) several times, often completing the ride in one day. He rode Ride the Hurricane, the bike ride to the top of Hurricane Ridge in 2011, and in the spring of 2012 he and his biking friends drove to California and followed the Tour of California, riding many of the stages ahead of the professional cyclists.

Ken and Mary lived a quiet personal life with one another and with their close circle of friends. He spent many hours walking the beach at Hawley Cove, finding treasures and throwing the ball or the frisbee for one of their golden retrievers. Ken and Mary moved into their dream home in November 2003 and shared that beautiful space until they retired from the paint store in June 2012. In those years he was happiest when he was working on a home project, his table saw out and his radio tuned to the Seattle Mariners. He also took up cooking and perfected not only his lasagna recipe but was able to fulfill the dream of having a "deep pit" barbecue that he built to cook his birthday dinner roast. Ken loved spending time with his four grandchildren who would call out to him in a melody of young voices, "Poppy" or "Poppa."

In August 2012, two months into retirement, Ken was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of multiple myeloma, a bone cancer. He was always upbeat and optimistic until his final days, continuing to provide comfort to those who were trying to comfort him. He was surrounded with family and friends in his final days and we continued
to love him until the very end.

Survivors include wife Mary Hall, Bainbridge Island. Daughter Carly Cloer (Terry) of Spokane and their sons Grant and Alex; daughter Lisa Hamilton (Joel) of Edmonds and their two daughters Ana and Kailey. Brother Jim Schuricht (Kathy) of Incline Village, Nevada and Sausalito, California. Brothers in law Phil Hall (Theresa) and Kelly Hall of Bainbridge Island, John Hall (Barbara) of Monarch Beach, California and Sister in law, Claire Shaw, of Westlake Village, California. Also nieces and nephews, Michael, Jillian, CJ and Laura.

It was Ken's wish to have a Celebration of Life and his desire will be fulfilled on Saturday, May 4th, at the Manor House at Lynwood Center, Bainbridge Island, from 1 pm to 3 pm. Everyone is invited to celebrate the life of this beautiful man.

The family asks that donations in Ken's memory be made to the Bainbridge Public Library, a wonderful source that Ken discovered in the past several years.
