Edward William Acheson died Sept. 14, 2021, at home in Washougal surrounded by family. He was 89.
He was born June 30, 1932, in Chewelah, WA, to William and Margaret (Poetter) Acheson one of five children. At the age of 20 he joined the Air Force, where he served as an airplane mechanic during the Korean War.
Ed married Emma Smith on Jan. 16, 1954, moving to Washougal where they raised their four children. Ed worked at the Camas paper mill for 38 years, retiring in 1990. In 1976, Ed and Emma owned and operated Washougal Arts and Crafts, followed by the Big Dipper ice cream shop.
Ed had a wonderful sense of humor and was a devoted family man. He treasured his family, and always made them feel loved and appreciated. When he said he loved you, you knew it was spoken from the heart. He enjoyed warm days, puttering around his garage, and volunteering for East County Fire and Rescue and the CAPE Enrichment Program.
