Meech Houghton

Our beloved husband, father, grandfather and brother passed away on May 30, 2016 at the age of 83. He was born on June 4, 1932 and grew up on Orcas Island where he developed friendships with his classmates which he maintained throughout his life. He was known as “the scientist” in school and enjoyed learning how things worked. After attending WWU he went to the UW, where he met his future wife Arlene. They settled in Bellevue and raised four children. His dream was to be a physics teacher. But Boeing recognized his talents, so after graduating from college he was employed there until his retirement in 1995. He loved helping others, taking trips to Orcas Island and North Dakota, and hiking in the NW.

He is survived by his wife Arlene; sons Dean, Terry, Michael and daughter Lisa Anderson; brother Jim Walker and 6 grandchildren.Meech and Arlene 50th
