David Walter Janecke obituary image 1



David passed away Dec. 20, 2015 in Everett at the age of 93. He was born in 1922, was a proud veteran of WWII and lifelong Seattle-area resident. He loved fuzzy cats, fast cars and his four wives (not necessarily in that order). A prolific writer, he enjoyed telling stories, taking photos, making people laugh, and charmed most everyone he met. He was a devoted grandfather and great-grandfather, and is survived by daughter Kathy Ross, son-in-law Dennis Ross, grandchildren Johnna Dow and Carey Ross, great-grandchildren Aiden and Liam Dow, and the love of his life, Lillian Keeble. He will be remembered always and with great fondness for his zest for life, desire to always do things his own way and his ever-present jaunty hat.
