Bill Aden died Aug. 6, 2018 ,in Puyallup.

He was born in Carlson, Washington, near Mineral on June 16, 1933, to Jane and Carter Aden. They moved to Cumberland when he was 3 along with older siblings Treva, Garland, Mary, Rex and Wally who have all preceded him in death. He attended elementary school in Cumberland in a one-room schoolhouse then started seventh grade at Enumclaw High School graduating with the class of 1951. After graduating he became a logger working for different companies until he began working for Weyerhaeuser Co. for 45 years. He retired in 1996 and was selected as “Bull of the Woods” in 2004, an honor that meant a lot to him.

He loved his family and friends and enjoyed all the fun times spent with them. He loved to hunt, fish, play horseshoes, pick blackberries and mushrooms, care for his rose garden, play cribbage and other card games and all of his trips traveling to Alaska.

He is survived by his wife of 65 years, Shirley; son Randy (Cathy) of Hoodsport, Washington; daughters Debbie (Paul) of Alaska and Julie of San Diego; brother and sister-in-law Lawrence and Alayne Van Hoof and sister-in-law Doris Aden, all from Enumclaw; eight grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.

A celebration of his life will take place at 11 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 9, at the Buckley Eagles. Donations can be made to a charity of the donor’s choice or the Buckley Eagles No. 1387, where he was a member for 63 years.
