69). Donald J. Leu  (1923 - 2002)   Bellingham, Washington

In the fall of 2002, I was getting ready to move back to Portland after my 18-month journey when my father was suddenly diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, so I decided to stay in Bellingham to help take care of him.  Sadly, he passed away a few months later.  My Dad grew up during the Depression, fought during World War II, then became a leading educator after the war.  He was intelligent, modest, compassionate and a real visionary, and we all dearly miss him.
