SUQUAMISH — The family of Edward Carl Moff (Aug. 28, 1925 - June 5, 2014) is planning an informal social gathering for friends of Carl on July 24, 4-6 p.m., at the House of Awakening Culture in downtown Suquamish.
Carl was born to Edward Charles Moff and Cora Nett Ranny in Seattle, where he spent his early years.
His fondest childhood memories were of fishing with his dad, playing with his dog on Alki Beach, and playing the violin in the Seattle Junior Symphony.
As a teenager, Carl moved to Miller Bay where he met and later married his high school sweetheart, Beverly Lois Clark. Soon thereafter, Carl joined the U.S. Navy and served three years on the battleship USS Virginia during World War II. Upon his return, he and Beverly raised five daughters and one son on a small dairy farm.
Carl loved the water, sailing and fishing, woodworking, hunting with his son and grandsons, and reading non-fiction.
Carl was a member of the VFW. He was also a Boy Scout leader.
During his life, Carl owned several businesses before retiring to Miller Bay.
He is survived by his daughters, Judy Goenett (Jake), Mary Saurdiff (Joe), Susan Henry (Shawn), and Carla Lukinich (Rusty); son, Steven (Kim); 16 grandchildren, 31 great-grandchildren, and five great-great-grandchildren.
A private family memorial was held according to Carl’s wishes.
