Obituary

Kenneth E. Truesdell of Tacoma, WA passed away on Monday February 3, 2020.  He was 73 years old.  Born in Bremerton, WA on November 11, 1946 he was welcomed by the late Edward (Ed) and Dorothy (Dot) Truesdell.  Ken graduated from Centralia High School in 1965 and joined the Navy that same year proudly serving our country until 1970.  He worked in sales at Huttig Building Products until his retirement in 2014.  Ken enjoyed playing golf with friends, reading, and a good cigar.  He built a nice collection of Hot Wheel/Match Box cars throughout the years, and he could put a jigsaw puzzle together faster than you could say jigsaw puzzle.

Ken is survived by his loving wife of 28 years, Marnie; daughter and son-in-law Heather and Chip Anderson of Billings, Montana; stepdaughters Michelle Whisman of Seattle, Kari Whisman of Renton, and Tracie Whisman of Tacoma; grandchildren Brian Whisman, Hannah, Roarie, and Koarbin Anderson; great-grandson Jaden Whisman; and sisters Debi Truesdell of California and Cindy Truesdell of Oregon.  He was preceded in death by his parents, Ed and Dot, brother Larry, and niece Leah.

Per his wishes, there will be no service.
