April 28, 1940 ~ February 2, 2011

Karl John Decious, 70, loving husband, father, grandfather and brother passed away peacefully on February 2, 2011. He lived for fishing with his brother and playing with his grandchildren. Karl lived with his wife, Joan Morehouse Decious in Yacolt, WA on a small plot of land he had transformed into his own garden of Eden with his vegetables, berries and beloved fruit trees.
Karl was born on April 28, 1940 in Grants Pass, OR. He grew up in Portland, OR with his parents Velma and Howard Decious; brother, Ted Decious; and sister Shirley Graham. He married Sharon Irene Wren on June 27, 1969. They had three children, Matthew, Heather and Teresa. Karl worked as a Registered Nurse at Kaiser Permanente for 20 years and then at OHSU for 10 years before he retired. They raised their children in Vancouver, WA where he lived until his first wife passed away in 2004.
Karl met Joan and they married in 2006. Their union added Joan's 7 children - Eric, Bryan, Sonya, Tammy, Heather N, Amanda and Kyle and many grandchildren to his family legacy. During his life, Karl touched all that knew him. He will be greatly missed.
