Born: July 4, 1934
Died: March 30, 2021
Joel passed away surrounded in love from his family and community. Our church has been blessed by his presence and his wife Annemarie’s for the past 8 years. They joined UCUCC in October 2012 after moving to Seattle from their longtime home in Connecticut, although they had been attending UCUCC for several years when visiting their daughter, member Christa Tinker, and her family. Joel had a lifelong passion for anything that flies. Many of us may have found ourselves in a Narthex conversation with him about flying and him particularly encouraging young people to experience the magic of flying. He cared about being a part of community and the UCUCC community, talking with and hearing stories along with his talent of capturing beautiful pictures and sharing them. His presence will be missed.
Please hold Annemarie in your prayers along with their children and grandchildren.
