Reminder of Dick Stern's memorial Service, Sunday June 7, 2009:

Richard M. STERN Dick Stern passed away peacefully at age 96 on May 2 at Home Sweet Home, the residence where he had lived the past year and a half.

He graduated from the Engineering School of the University of ND in 1935, followed by jobs in Chicago, Minneapolis, and Spokane. He came to Seattle in 1941 to work on wartime projects for the Austin Co. at the Sandpoint Naval Station. An innovative mechanical engineer, he designed residential and commercial heating, ventilating, and air conditioning, including many projects in Alaska, and worked enthusiastically into his early 90s. He served as Seattle chapter president of ASHRAE, the mechanical engineering society, and on national committees. Dick cherished a wide circle of friends, and traveled with his many fishing buddies to the fjords of B.C. and islands of Alaska in pursuit of the "big one". Dick's wife Belle May and son Edward predeceased him. He leaves daughter Cheryl (Robert), daughter-in-law Jennifer; grandchildren Deborah (David), Nomi, Daniel (partner Bill), Anna (Jeffrey); and great-granddaughters Eliana and Rebecca.
