Jory passed away on May 28th after a long illness. His kind spirit and gentle nature will be remembered forever by all who knew him. He was very proud of and loved his children and grandchildren very much. Before his illness he was a handyman on Vashon Island and a talented artist, which was visible in the care he took with all the projects he worked on. He also enjoyed gardening, music and restoring old cars and trucks. He graduated Franklin high school in 1968 and received an associate of arts degree from Green River Community College and a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Oregon and held a teaching certificate. He taught school in Oregon before moving back to the Seattle area and going to work for Boeing Aircraft Company. He loved Puget Sound and spent a lot of time at Alki beach. His final wish to have his ashes scattered in Puget Sound was carried out by his loving immediate Family. He was preceded in passing by his loving mother Audrey. He is survived by his father Jack, children Jason and Jenifer, brother Marty sister Linda, his precious grandchildren Jordan, Janelle, Arden and Foster and many relatives and friends. There will be a celebration of his life on August third at two p.m. at the Kenney community room located at 7125 Fauntleroy Way SW, Seattle WA 98136
