Brown, Larry Ray "Pepperman"  
LARRY "PEPPERMAN" RAY BROWN January 5, 1947 ~ November 6, 2014 "Most of all, those who knew him, will remember his beaming smile." Larry Ray Brown, passed away at his home in Vancouver, WA on Nov. 6, 2014. He was born Jan. 5, 1947 to Leroy and Imogene (Hawkins) Colby in Vancouver, WA. He was adopted by his step-father, Robert Hylla. Then after the death of his mother (1959), he was adopted by his Aunt and Uncle, Donald and Marjorie (Hawkins) Brown. Larry graduated from Fort Vancouver High School in 1966, where he lettered in football, track and wrestling. Many classmates were dear friends his entire life. He was an Eagle Scout and served as a Scout Master while stationed in the Air Force in Germany. He served 16 years in the USAF, ending up as a Supply Officer and worked with nuclear weapons. Larry worked much of his life as a carpenter. He and his brother Lon built several new homes and helped to rebuild the south entrance to the Grand Canyon. Larry started working in housekeeping at the VA hospitals in Portland, OR and Vancouver, WA. He later became the locksmith at both facilities, working with a new computerized system. One of the projects he worked on for the VA was building a sweat lodge for Native American Veterans. Larry loved dressing in costumes and won several Halloween costume contests at the VA. He was a dashing pirate, a heck of a tooth fairy, a cereal killer, a mad doctor and a very ugly bearded woman to name a few. Everyone who knew Larry knows he had strong and very vocal political views. He was a firm believer in unions and protecting the middle class and workers rights. He was well known to protest with signs and marchers anything he thought was unfair. Larry loved bowling, playing online poker, and gardening. He grew 83 types of hot peppers and challenged relatives and friends to hot pepper eating contests earning him the nickname "Pepperman". He was the president of the Minnehaha Neighborhood Association for two years and took an active interest in his neighborhood. He was an avid photographer, always snapping pictures of family, friends and places. Of all the things in his life, his family, especially his grandchildren, were the most valued. Larry loved to take the grandkids Christmas tree hunting, let them sit in the front seat of his 1958 Pontiac Superchief pretending they were driving. He let them shampoo his hair and played with them until they fell asleep on his chest in his recliner (he was usually sleeping too). Larry would take each of them home individually for the weekend so that they all had the chance of being the "special" grandchild for a weekend. His favorite cake was wedding cake which may explain why he was married five times. Larry is survived by his companion and best friend, B.J. Berry; former wife, Nancy Wagoner Christner; step-son, Jason Christner; grandchildren, Magnus, Isabella and Abram Christner; siblings, (natural and adoptive), Lon Brown, Susan (Mark) Million, Sandra Dobratz, Nancy (Stephen) Shockey, Tim (Debbie) Hylla, Ralph Hawkins, Connie Leavell, Helen Morgan, JoAnne Carls, Barbara Hylla; and William Hylla, a nephew he and Nancy raised from age 14. Larry will be interned at Willamette National Cemetery in Portland, OR on Fri., Nov. 21st at 10:00 a.m. There will be a short ceremony ending with a Military Honor Guard. A Celebration of Life will be held after the Thanksgiving holiday. Please sign his guest book at: www.columbian.com/obits .

Kee, Lily - Vancouver  
LILY KEE July 14th, 1926 ~ November 15th, 2014 Lily passed away November 15 at the age of 88. She was recently diagnosed with cancer and the disease took her from us too soon.

When WWII broke out the family left Canton and fled to Macau. Lily was a survivor from the day she left home in Macau. Lily ended up in Shanghai and worked for a family as a servant. She met her future husband, Charlie, in Shanghai. Her employer was an acquaintance of General Chennault, who happened to know a soldier under his command that might make a good husband. She survived the war and came to America with Charlie and settled down in Portland. Not satisfied with just being a war bride and a stranger in a foreign country, she learned English, much of it self taught. She also wanted to work and earn her way. Lily held many jobs during her journey. She began as the elevator operator at Ungar's Furs, a fashionable fur store in downtown Portland. She also worked at Jantzen Woolen Mills for 20 years and then Tektronix until she retired. Most importantly, she was a wife and mother. She is survived by her three children and six grandchildren.

Her children include sons, Lawrence (Seiko), Steven (Katie) and her daughter, Kathleen (Craig). In addition, her grandchildren are, Tsubasa, Tatsuya, Collin, Karsten, Clarice and Samuel.
