ADAM LEE MARIN COMMANDER

Adam Lee Marin Commander, former resident of Redmond and Kirkland, WA, kicked up his heels and stepped into heaven on March 21, 2017, following a heroic battle with congestive heart failure.

Adam graduated from Seattle Pacific University in 1989 with a bachelor’s degree in Communications and Business Management. Upon completing his degree, Adam was hired by PACCAR, Inc., as an Information Technology architect and developer for their subsidiary, Kenworth Truck Co. Adam received Kenworth’s “Over Drive” award, the company’s highest recognition for outstanding performance and dedication. He worked at Kenworth headquarters in Kirkland, WA, 1989-1998.

Adam joined Austin Sierra Consulting, Inc., in 1998 as a senior database architect and developer. The company was a preferred IT vendor to Microsoft in Redmond, WA. In 2003 Adam joined Microsoft and continued to work there until fall 2014.

Looking for a new career challenge and an opportunity to be closer to family, Adam and Lisa moved to The Dalles, OR in 2014. Adam joined the IT department at Mid-Columbia Medical Center as a senior developer.

Adam changed his name to Adam Marin Commander following his marriage to Lisa Commander in 1994. They were married at Shumway Mansion in Kirkland, WA. Adam and Lisa celebrated 23 years of marriage on March 19, two days before he stepped into heaven. He leaves behind his best friend and greatest fan.

A celebration of Adam’s life will be held May 10, 2pm, at Gateway Church in The Dalles, OR and May 13, 11am, at Meadowbrook Church in Redmond, WA. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Adam’s favorite charity, Samaritan’s Purse/Operation Christmas Child.
