Clarkston, WA

Marc Alan Hunt, 62, of Clarkston, WA, passed away at The Life Care Center, with Chaplaincy Hospice care, in Richland, WA, on September 19, 2023, after a hard-fought battle with cancer. Marc's favorite saying was, "My name is Marc A. Hunt, guess what the A stands for?"Marc was born on November 29, 1960, to Dutch and Joan Hunt at Kadlec Hospital in Richland, WA. Marc's wish was to come back home to the Tri Cities, where he was born and raised, to spend his final days with his family and friends. Marc worked in route sales for most of his career in Washington, Idaho, and Oregon. He had a personality that served him well in his career. Marc was very witty. He was an outdoorsman who loved to hunt and fish. He loved to be in his yard caring for his roses and miscellaneous flowers, and we must not forget all his "gnomes" keeping watch over things. Marc was an amazing cook that loved to share with family and friends. Marc was rarely idle - be it work or play, there was never enough time in a day. Marc leaves behind his mother, Joan Wisler; sisters Cindy (Bob) Anderson and Patti Hoglen; stepsister, Jodi (Kelly) Meagher; stepbrothers Bill (Leslie) Keating and John (Lisa) Keating; special nephews Shawn (Rayne) Anderson and Nick Hoglen; special niece Ronni (Mel) Campos. Marc was "Gruncle" to his great nieces and nephews, Kyra, Ashley, and Bjorn Anderson; Vaden and Scarlett Campos; Asher Hoglen; and numerous other nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, and uncles. Marc also leaves behind his three daughters, Kira Richards, Jessica Phillips, and Samantha (Brandon) Rivas; grandchildren, Jaiden Richards, Arayiah, Adelynn, and Adakyss Rivas. Marc was a proud "Opa" to his grandchildren. Marc was predeceased by his father and stepmother, Dutch and Darlene Hunt; stepfather Jim Wisler; and sister Debbie Olson. Marc's mother and sisters would like to give a Special "THANK YOU" to Mike and Jodi Wheeler, who were dear friends to Marc. Mike would get a call from Marc saying he needed his help and Mike would drop everything and be on his way to Clarkston. Mike was his caregiver in the last weeks before Marc was brought back home to the Tri-Cities, while Jodi kept the home front going. Mike was my son's Angel on earth! We would also like to thank Twila for her dedicated friendship to Marc. Marc's wishes were to be cremated and a graveside memorial is still being worked out and will be shared as soon it is finalized.

Clarkston, WA

Sibyl LaDeane Brooks Johnson passed away Feb. 18, 2023 in Clarkston, Washington. Sibyl Brooks Johnson began her earthly journey in Kansas in the 1950s. Her family moved to Washington in the 1960s. She met Jim in Seattle and they married in 1969. They fought as hard as they loved. The whole 54 years! In younger years they entertained a lot of people with their antics. Together they raised two successful daughters. Jamie Johnson (Jesse Gilliam) of Seattle and Sonya Wilcox of Clarkston. She was an attentive mother and made sure both daughters knew how to dust. She also had three grandsons. Noah Messing, Sam Messing, and Jack Wilcox. All of Clarkston. Only one is a golden-haired boy but all three were golden boys to her. She was so amused by all the boy stuff. She was very proud of them. Her children and grandsons were her greatest accomplishments. Another accomplishment that needs mentioned was rooting a rose bush from a cutting. She loved to garden, even if she wasn't very good at it. A houseplant never lasted longer than a couple weeks. She usually stuck to houseplants that could go in the dishwasher. She's also survived by her mother, Goldie McCubbins of Walla Walla; her sister, Ellen Bender of Umapine, OR; and her half sister, Lynn Myer of Milton-Freewater, OR. Her dad and three siblings predeceased her. Her journey ended because of pancreatic cancer. No memorial is planned per her wishes. Donations to Helping Hands Rescue would be appreciated.
