Donald A. McCoskrie

February 19, 1915 – June 23, 2011

Don grew up on a hill overlooking Lake Washington and Mt. Rainier, which influenced his whole life. He and his brother Burns and their friends sailed on Lk. Washington, out through the Locks, and all over Puget Sound. They skied on Mt. Rainier before there were any ski lifts in the state. He raced – and finished – the first Silver Skis Race from Camp Muir to Edith Creek Basin in 1934, He also graduated from Franklin High, attended the UW (Architecture), joined the Navy, worked for the Post Office at Terminal Annex Seattle, married Eileen Henry (September 7, 1941), built a house on the east side of Lake Sammamish, and had 2 daughters (Mary Lou and RuthAnn). After they retired in 1972, he and Eileen sailed in Europe for 27 summers, inspiring people everywhere they went to live their dreams. Don loved to say that he had been retired longer than he worked, and that he had left no stone unturned. There will be an open-house celebration of his life July 9 from 2-4 at Friendly Village Clubhouse 18425 NE 95th St., Redmond. Donations in his memory can be made to the Redmond Aid Car Fund 8450 – 161st Ave NE, Redmond, WA 98052.
