Delbert Eugene “Deb” Slack of Ocean Park, Wash., was born July 28, 1930, in Potter, Neb., to Bernard “BJ” and Edna Hawkins Slack. 

Deb passed away Feb. 3, 2013, his family by his side.

Deb graduated from high school in 1948 in Hood River.

He married Marilyn “Sookie” June Davies on May 11, 1948, in Stevenson, Wash. During their 34 years of marriage they lived in various sawmill towns in Northern California and Oregon while raising their family. Marilyn passed away Sept. 11, 1982, of cancer.

Deb married Sally Mann on May 28, 1983, in Hood River.

In his spare time Deb enjoyed hunting, fishing, golfing, gardening, family camping trips and, in his later years, he enjoyed walking his dogs on the beach and visiting with his friends who walked every day.

Deb is survived by his wife Sally Slack of Ocean Park; his children Linda Petersen of Oregon City, Steve  and Shelley Slack of Grants Pass, Todd and Debbie Slack of Carson, Wash.; grandchildren Brian and Steve Petersen, Courtney Slack Reisler, Kelly Slack Maxwell, Jay Slack, Kerri Slack Wright, Todd Slack Jr., Sara Slack, and Katie Slack. He is also survived by his 17 1/2 great-grandchildren.

A celebration of life will take place later this year in Grants Pass followed by a family camping trip to a favorite camping spot of Deb’s.
