EDWARD F. KOESTER
September 24, 1934 ~ May 27, 2015
Edward F. Koester peacefully passed away on May 27, 2015, with family at his side. Born in Vancouver, Washington, in 1934, Ed graduated from Washington State University in 1956 with a major in civil engineering. He retired as president of his engineering firm, KH2A, in 1997.
Ed loved backpacking in the Cascades, wood working, flying the company Cessna, and helping others. He was known for his enthusiasm, cheerful whistling and infectious grin. He was an honest, capable, hard-working man with a big-hearted, generous nature.
His wife of 59 years, Sue, daughter Kiira and son-in-law Daniel, daughter Janelle, son Ken, daughter-in-law Christine, and grandchildren Davis and Brenna all miss him dearly.
