Obituary

Julian Sanford "Sandy" Oen of Quilcene passed away from cancer on Sunday, August 17, 2014, at Hospice Care Center, Bremerton, Washington, with family at his side. He was 77 years old at the time of his death.

He was born March 15, 1937, in Seattle, Washington. In 1939, he was adopted by Julian T. and Nelly (Nilsen) Oen of Quilcene.

Sandy grew up in Quilcene, learning to be a hunter and fisherman from his father. He graduated from Quilcene High School in 1955 and enlisted in the U.S. Air Force in 1957. He served until 1961, with time spent in Japan.

He attended Olympic College (Bremerton) and married Linda Marie Jessemey of Olympia, Washington, on June 15, 1963.

Their first home was in Brinnon, where Sandy worked "booming logs" with Jay Swanson. In 1964, they moved to Quilcene, where he was in the tug boat business J&J Towing with his dad, Julian.

Then in 1968, Sandy and Linda opened Sandy's Chevron and Towing. It was in 1974 they added an auto parts store in Quilcene and soon had stores in Sequim (1985) and Port Angeles (1988).

They retired in 2009, setting the stage to travel more to Hawaii, Mexico and Western states.

Sandy was loved by many, especially his family, who will miss him tremendously.

He is survived by his wife of 51 years, Linda; their three children, Jay (Vickie) of Sequim, Julie (David) Hathaway of Clatskanie, Oregon, and Jeff (Tracy) of Marysville, Washington; grandchildren Kaylee, Kortney, Cody (Courtney), Randy, Jacob and Tyler; and his sister, Joan Creighton of Tacoma, Washington. He is also survived by Linda's four sisters and husbands, along with many nieces, nephews and cousins.

Throughout his life, Sandy was very active in the Quilcene community, serving as a volunteer fireman for 23 years, past president of the QVFD and fire district commissioner, and was a former member of the Masons, Lions Club and Quilcene Community Club.

At the time of his death, he was a member of the Quilcene Historical Museum and Quilcene Harbor Yacht Club. He enjoyed boating on Hood Canal and the Gulf Islands.

He was an avid deer and elk hunter and fisherman, making many trips with his sons Jay and Jeff and friends. In addition, he loved bird hunting with his son in-law, David, and grandsons Cody and Randy.

He was the happiest when he was on the beach with family and friends getting clams, geoducks and oysters. Every year, you could find him pulling shrimp and crab pots.

Services will be held Saturday, August 23, 2014, in Quilcene School's multipurpose room, 294715 U.S. Highway 101, at 11 a.m., followed by a community potluck. A family graveside ceremony will be held at 10 a.m. at the Quilcene Cemetery.
