May 17, 1932 ˜ July 2, 2019

Lee Ivan Kinart of Washougal, Washington, passed away on July 2, 2019 in Vancouver, Washington. He was born on May 17, 1932 in Modale, Iowa to Clarence and Leona Kinart as one of 7 children. They later settled in the Camas-Washougal area, where Lee graduated from Washougal High School.
Lee served in the Air Force, and worked at the paper mill in Camas, WA for 19 years. After retiring from the mill, he partnered as a housing contractor, eventually branching out on his own. He built many houses in the local Camas and Washougal area, as well as Skamania County.
Lee loved sports, having played them at Washougal High School, and later as a fan and spectator. Naturally, the Seahawks and Mariners were special teams. He also enjoyed touring Oregon and Washington with his wife, Jeanne in their RV.
Lee is survived by his wife of 66 years, Jeanne of Washougal, WA; daughter, Pamela (Paul) Ethington of Richland, WA; son, David Lee Kinart of Washougal, WA; granddaughter, Deirdre (Joe) Wells; grandson, Zachary (Jessica) Ethington; 4 great-grandchildren, Madelynn, Oliver, Leona and Killian all of Puyallup, WA; and numerous nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents and all six of his siblings.
A service will be held for Lee at Washougal Memorial Cemetery on Friday, July 19th, at 1:00 p.m.

I have fond memories of the Kinart Family. Lee and his siblings were my Mother's cousins. Lee built a beautiful home for my parents on Prune Hill. Lee was a fine man and will be missed. Hearts and Prayers are with the Family.
