Victor Allen Boede was born at Northgate Hospital in Seattle July 7, 1957. He passed tragically June 28 in an automobile accident.
The Boede Family arrived to Orcas Island on the late 1800s. Victor lived most of his life on the family property known as Boede’s Corner. He married the love of his life, Sallie Richards on Dec. 24, 2009 after over 15 years together. Victor also loved his dog, Nippers, who miraculously survived the accident.
Victor and Sallie worked for the Buck Mountain Association as maintenance technicians for many years and Victor was a jack of all trades. He loved to fish with Sallie and Nippers at Lake Killebrew, help his good friend Bob at The Ranch, and be creative in his rascal activities.
Victor is preceded in death by his mother Dorothy and his sister Vickie. He is survived by Sallie Boede, his dog Nippers, and many family members to include special cousins Kevin and Angel Kerr of Bellingham.
There will be a Celebration of Life on July 23, 2011 at 4 p.m. at Boede’s Corner. Bring your Victor stories and be ready to tell them. Sallie would like everyone to feel welcome.
