Obituary of William Lee Lauterbach
William (Willy) Lauterbach, 65, passed away painlessly and peacefully at his home in Port Ludlow, Washington, on December 20, 2019 with lifelong friends at his side, and with the aid of Hospice. Willy was born in Hood River to Bill and Kathleen (Williams) Lauterbach and spent his youth in White Salmon prior to finishing high school at Lincoln High in Portland. He attended Western Washington University in Bellingham studying Political Science while gaining employment in specialty automotive sales across the US. Later in life he was reacquainted with his old high school girlfriend and future wife Lynda Leask from Lincoln. They enjoyed over 20 years of marriage while Lynda pursued her architectural career up and down the west coast, and Willy’s interests turned to investing. Willy and Lynda enjoyed the fine arts, antique collecting, traveling, and boating in Puget Sound and along the Columbia River. Willy is preceded in death by his father Bill Lauterbach of Castle Rock, and his wife Lynda by just over a short year. He is survived by his mother Kathleen Hamm of Vancouver, Washington, an historic White Salmon Valley extended family, and many friends.
