A long-time dentist who opened his practice on Washington Street in 1974 and was an active community leader here in Sequim, died Monday, August 9, at home. Dr. Edward Richard Zbaraschuk was diagnosed with signet cell adenocarcinoma earlier this year.
Dr. Zbaraschuk was active in the Sequim community, especially with Kiwanis, where he served as treasurer and president and participated in the organization's annual Christmas Tree fund raising project, and the local Seventh-Day Adventist Church, where he was an active lay leader and teacher of an Adult Bible class.

Melvina Zary.

After graduating from Loma Linda University School of Dentistry in Loma Linda, California, he and his family returned to the Olympic Peninsula.
He leaves behind his wife, Mel (they would have celebrated their 52nd wedding anniversary in November) and four children and their spouses: Richard (who became a partner in his father's dental practice in 1989) and Jennifer of Sequim, WA; Tracy and Craig Reynolds of Sterling, MA; Cindy and Brent Robinson of Murrieta, CA; and Lori and Smari Thordarson of LaPorte, IN. Edward was preceded in death by his parents and older sister, Agnes Louise. Two younger brothers, Dennis Walter and Reuben Ivan, survive.

A celebration of Dr. Zbaraschuk's life will be held at a later date. Those wishing information may call 683-7373.
Henry Roch Joncas
Born in Longview, WA January 30th, 1928 to Joseph and Marie Joncas, Henry was the youngest and surviving member of 6 siblings. Henry passed away peacefully August 7th in Sequim, with his family nearby. In his youth Henry worked in the Long Bell Lathe Mill in Longview and as a projectionist in the local theater. He served in the Army Signal Corps in Germany in the late 40s where he taught Morse Code to our troops. Following his honorable discharge he returned to the Los Angeles area where he began a long and successful career as a stereo manufacturer's representative. Among his early clients was the silent film star Harold Lloyd, with whom he turned a business relationship into a lifelong friendship. Henry moved to Seattle in 1962 where he started Seattle Stereo, one of the first hi-fi stores in Seattle. The following year he married Marie Joncas (Pukallus). For the next 47 years Henry and Marie raised their two daughters Kim and Linda, traveled the world, enjoyed their Gourmet Club, Trader Vic's, entertaining clients, family and friends, the opera, and motor-homing. Henry and Marie eventually retired in Sequim, WA and enjoyed their golden years together there for 19 years. Henry was known for his sincere generosity and love for his family and many friends. Family meant everything to Henry. Christmas was his favorite time of year and he loved giving gifts. Henry spoke his mind and heart freely and was a man of wry wit and humor. He maintained his childlike sense of wonder and delight to the very end. He adored pets throughout life, from his childhood raccoon Elizabeth to his beloved dogs Abby and Kenny. Henry embraced technology and it helped keep him young. Family and friends were most important to him. Most of all he loved life. An eternal optimist and child at heart, he spread love, wonder and joy to all who knew him. Reminiscing on his many accomplishments and adventures he remarked recently how lucky he had been in his life to have "Bounced off all four walls." In the end Henry's inquisitive mind, spirit and heart continued to lead his body where it could no longer follow. Henry is survived by his wife Marie; Daughters Kim Vincent (Mike); Linda Wells (Randy); Grand-daughters Katie Stubbs (Chris); Shannon and Sarah Vincent, and many, many beloved friends who will forever miss this truly remarkable man. There will be a small private service. In lieu of flowers, donations to local hospice or the American Cancer Society are appreciated. Go with love Henry!
