Wallace Raymond Strickland “Wally” passed away at his home on July 15, 2018. He was 78 years old. Born July 29, 1939 in Seattle, Wally grew up in Kent, WA. From an early age he loved horses, cows, roping and farming. Wally won many awards as a young man for raising prize steer and continued raising cattle, roping in his younger years and working on his property until the very end. Wally worked in the Seed, Feed & Garden industry his entire career and made many friends along the way. Wally was currently working at Oregro Seeds, Inc out of Oregon. If you asked anyone they would say Wally was the definition of a hardworking man. He mentored and taught many generations the values and ethics of hard work as he led by example. Wally’s smile, big blue eyes and even bigger personality will be greatly missed by his family and all of his friends. Each of you held a special place in his heart.

He is survived by his son and daughter-in-law Jeff and Laurie Strickland; stepson and daughter-in-law Jim and Lisa Wilson; sister Nancy Dillman; grandchildren Jason, Lindsey and Krystal Strickland; and countless friends and extended family.
