Father of Grace Mae Shockey Kimble

Professor of Microbiology and Public Health at Seattle Pacific College, Seattle, Washington. He was head of the science department at SPC.

Dr. Shockey was the first Director of Camp Casey, Whidbey Island, Coupeville, Washington. It was his desire to start a Sea Lab at Camp Casey, which he did. It is in front of this Sea Lab where his and his wife's ashes rest in their memorial stone.

It was in Grandpa's house in Seattle on Queen Anne Hill that I offered a proposal of marriage to my future wife, his first grandchild, and she said yes.

He was an inventor, builder (he built a log home and an airplane), big game hunter in Alaska, and a great guy to have as a neighbor. He served time in the South Dakota National Guard. His church ties were to the Free Methodist Church in Seattle. He was in Who's Who in America. He said that wasn't a big deal. We all thought it was!

The great thing about Grandpa was that he did not carry himself in pride. He was humble and treated all people that he met as if they were the special and important person.

He didn't like to talk about his, or his family's past. Ask him about his hunting experiences and he'd talk to you all day. He was a member of the NRA and the Boone and Crockett Club.

He was diagnosed with Parkinson's and spent the last years of his live suffering from this disease. He is loved and missed.
