James Wetton

Jim has left a big hole in many lives.

Jim and his twin brother Dick were born to Margaret and Dick Wetton. Their growing up years were spent in Black Diamond with their parents and beloved sister Mary Lou.

Jim’s enjoyment of fishing and hunting began in his early years. Later he became an avid vegetable gardener. His hobbies expanded into sauerkraut and Polish kielbasa making, grilling salmon and other delicacies on the barbecue.

For the last thirty years Jim’s livelihood came from his business Jim Wetton Plumbing.

For the last fourteen years, Niley his constant sidekick, kept him company as he moved around the property from chore to chore.

Jim’s easy way, ready smile, and readiness to help were special qualities that drew many to him.

In 1973 Jim married Kathy Douglas. For the last forty-six years Jim and Kathy have been a special couple, loving, enjoying, and cherishing each other. They shared their joy, generosity, and willingness to help with a host of family and friends.

Jim has left a big hole in many lives. He is survived by Kathy; his son Jeff and daughter-in-law Joell; grandsons Jeffrey and Jake; goddaughter Alyssa; many relatives and friends; and Niley. Jim was preceded in death by his parents, his brother, and his sister.

A celebration of Jim’s life will be held on Friday, August 23, 2019 at the Enumclaw VFW at 2:00 p.m. The celebration will be followed by a potluck.

Donations may be made to the Children’s Hospital Foundation, P.O. Box 50020, Seattle, WA 98145 or the Enumclaw Fire Department, 1330 Wells St., Enumclaw, WA 98022.
