Jerald G. Bebow

He was born in Wisconsin to Harry and Irene Bebow, and moved to the Island with his family in 1959.

A long time island resident, Jerry passed peacefully from natural causes at his home on Vashon. He was 71 years of age.

He was born in Wisconsin to Harry and Irene Bebow, and moved to the Island with his family in 1959.

He graduated from Vashon High School in 1966. He worked as a quality control specialist for Sunstrand Corporation in Colorado for many years and was trained as a HVAC technician. He returned to Vashon in 1994 and was employed at K-2. He retired from Vashon ACE Hardware.

Jerry was a quiet and intelligent man who loved animals and the natural world. He enjoyed his retirement years, observing birds and wildlife, reading, and caring for his property.

His parents predeceased him. He is survived by his sister, Nancy, who will miss him deeply, especially his humor and friendly advice.

Heartfelt gratitude is expressed to all of our Vashon friends and neighbors, especially Matthew and Karen Boyle and Dan and Jane Schmaus for their wonderful kindness. Jerry will rest at the Vashon Cemetery.

Donations may be made to Vashon Island Pet Protectors and or the Vashon-Maury Island Land Trust, or to the cause of your choice.

Peaceful Journey, Dear Brother
