RICHARD “RICK” GEORGE STANFORD

Richard “Rick” George Stanford, 73 of North Bend, passed away at Swedish Cherry Hill Hospital on Sunday, July 21st, 2019. He was born on July 27th, 1945 in Seattle Washington to the late Ray and Louise Stanford. He was predeceased by his brother Robert and beloved wife of 29 years, Cynthia.

Rick, a loving husband, father, grandpa, and friend to many, was a long time resident of North Bend. He has often been described as kind, easy to talk to, a great listener and a man who truly cared for others before himself.

Rick was a standout athlete at Bellevue High School (‘63) and earned a scholarship to Central Washington University to play quarterback. At the age of 20 he enlisted in the U.S. Navy and was stationed in Hawaii. Rick married his sweetheart Cynthia Heimbigner in 1981. Rick had a long career in the Operating Engineers Union for Western Asphalt and earned the distinct nickname of “Rollpac Ricky”. He had a love for gardening, fishing, collecting antiques, as well as fond memories of coaching his sons in Little League Baseball and watching the Dawgs and Hawks together.

Rick is survived by his sons Curtis “C.J.” (Orlia) and Beau (Allison); as well as three grandchildren Duke, Cash and Quincy Stanford. He will be forever remembered by his family and dear friends.

A Celebration of Life for Rick will be held on Saturday, August 10th at 10:00 a.m., at Mt. Si Lutheran Church – 411 NE 8th St, North Bend, WA 98045.
