Robert (Bob) John Fay, 93, of Leavenworth, Wash. passed away on Nov. 5, 2013. Bob passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family at Evergreen Hospice Center in Kirkland, Wash. Born on Nov. 30, 1919 in Wallace, Idaho, Bob was the son of Myra and Cyrel Fay and brother to Jane, Martha, and Mary. He was preceded in death by his parents, three sisters, and son Michael. Bob is survived by his loving wife of 75 years Claudia Fay, two sons Steve and Patrick, 13 grandchildren, 23 great-grandchildren, and four great great-grandchildren.

Bob grew up in northern Idaho and eastern Washington, and attended Lewis and Clark High School in Spokane. After graduation, he worked in the mining industry until he entered the University of Idaho in Moscow, where he graduated in 1952 with a Bachelor's Degree in Education and Electrical Engineering. In 1955, he moved to Monroe, Wash., and started his teaching career at Monroe High School. He later earned a Master's Degree in Education at the University of Washington. In 1956, Bob and his family moved to Skykomish, Wash. where he taught math and science. He was also the school principal, and became the superintendent for the school district until he retired in 1982. After retirement, Bob and Claudia moved to Leavenworth, Wash. where he was an avid golfer, and managed the Leavenworth Golf Course for many years. Bob and Claudia were both members of Our Lady of the Snows Catholic Church in Leavenworth, where they served as Eucharistic ministers for 25 years. Bob loved warm weather, and spent many winters in Mesa, Ariz., where he enjoyed playing softball. He was an accomplished gardener, and member of the Dahlia Society, growing prize-winning dahlias for over 40 years.

There will be a celebration of Bob's life in Leavenworth on a date to be announced later.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you send donations to Evergreen Hospice Center, 12822 124th Lane NE, Kirkland, WA 98034.
