                                        James (Jim) E. Barnard, WA PLS No. 21672

                                        was born in Peoria, Illinois to Edward and Bernice (Huette) Barnard. After graduating
                                        from Pekin Community High School in 1964, he joined the Army, subsequently serving
                                        in Japan, Korea and a short assignment in the Gilbert Islands. Upon discharge from the
                                        Army, he attended Spoon River Community College and became a licensed Land Survey-
                                        or in Illinois and later in Washington State.

                                          He worked in Illinois before moving to Tacoma WA in 1984, working as a surveyor for
                                        PacTech Engineering. In 1994 he began work at Kitsap County, retiring in 2014. Jim and
                                        his wife Ruth moved to Lacey in 2015 to be closer to their grandchildren.
             He is survived by his wife Ruth and sons Christopher (Nancy) Simpson and Jeremy Barnard. He was truly the happiest
           when he was bringing sunshine to others, whether it was caring for family, volunteering, or building toys for kids. He was
           an awesome husband, father, papa, brother, nephew, and friend with an infectious laugh that will always be remembered. n
