We are sad to announce the passing of Richard Binion in 2023. Richard was born in 1944 and graduated from Onalaska High School in Washington. He served in the U.S. Navy during the Vietnam War and went on to work at the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard in Bremerton until his retirement. He took a job at Ace Hardware in Gig Harbor, which he loved, and worked there until his illness.
Richard loved riding his motorcycle, fishing, hunting and shrimping with friends and family. He was a woodworker and made many fine pieces, generously sharing his finished work. He is survived by his wife, Myrna, their children Aleta and Richard, and three wonderful grandsons, Cameron, Max and Avery.
In memorial, please send contributions to The Nature Conservancy. A gathering will be held in Richard’s memory in August. For more information visit www.rill.com.
