Obituary of Darwin Rodney Thayer

Darwin Rodney Thayer, resident of Bonney Lake, WA, passed away after a long battle with Parkinson's on hospice care.

He was preceded in death by his parents Charles & Pearl Thayer.

He is survived by his loving wife Martha; children Dan, Rod (Sheila); grandchildren Kayla & Katie; great-grandchildren Kole & Giacomo; brother Dennis (Shirley) as well as many nieces, nephews, friends & neighbors.

Darwin worked for 25 years as a welder at Pacific Car and Foundry, 10 years as a machinist at Boeing.  After retirement, he was bored so went back to work as janitorial for 12 years at REI.

Darwin never met a stranger.  Everyone he met loved him for his sense of humor, wit and all his jokes.

He graduated from Puyallup High School in 1958.
