Ei­nan’s at Sun­set

Our Fa­ther peace­fully passed away with his chil­dren by his side on No­vem­ber 6, 2018. He was born April, 24th, 1929 in Everett, Wash­ing­ton to Glen and Mar­garet Belew.

Dad at­tended Pa­cific Lutheran Uni­ver­sity be­fore be­gin­ning his ca­reer at Seat­tle First Na­tional Bank in Everett. Here is where he mar­ried Gwen­dolyn Briggs in 1950, to whom he re­mained mar­ried un­til her death in 1977.

In 1965, the two set­tled in Rich­land where they raised their five chil­dren: Lynn (John Sch­midt), Steve (Mel) Belew, Brian (for­mer wife Cindy) Belew, Beth (Rick Richard­son), Jan (Kevin Lenkers­dor­fer). Dad worked at G.E. and West­ing­house for the ma­jor­ity of his ca­reer. He re­tired at the age of 60 to en­joy golf and rid­ing his horses, but spent most of his time with his twelve grand­chil­dren. Dad was al­ways on the side­lines watch­ing his chil­dren or grand­chil­dren play, eas­ily spot­ted wear­ing his hat which we named the “Bud Hat”.

Dad was pre­ceded in death by his wife Gwen, son Brian, his par­ents Glen and Mar­garet, sis­ter, June Lang­ton and brother, John Belew. He is sur­vived by his chil­dren, 12 grand­chil­dren, 11 great-grand­chil­dren (1 on the way), sis­ter Es­ther Crane and nu­mer­ous nieces and neph­ews.

Our me­mories will last a life­time and he will for­ever be with us each time we en­joy a choco­late milk­shake, of course without a straw, whip cream or cherry.

We want to thank TriCi­ties Chap­laincy Hospice and Mag­gie for tak­ing such great care of our Dad, we will be for­ever grate­ful.

Grave­side ser­vice will be held at Sun­set Me­mo­rial Gar­dens, No­vem­ber 17, 2018, at 2:00 pm. Cel­e­bra­tion to fol­low at the home of Beth & Rick, 3033 Char­ity Ct, Kennewick, WA.
