Paul Dauber Obituary, Death – slipped peacefully away from this world on October 24, 2019, at Cottage in the Meadow, after a long battle with cancer. It was on the 12th of April, 1934 in the town of Zillah that he was born, and it was in that town that he first met Joan Dauber, whose maiden name was Hackney.
Joan Dauber was his future wife. After spending his boyhood in the Yakima Valley, Walt went on to complete both his undergraduate and legal studies at Willamette University, where he graduated with degrees in both fields of study. Over the course of more than 35 years, he was active in the legal community in Yakima.
Walt was predeceased by his wife Joan, both of his parents, Walter and Maude, and his sister Marian. His wife is the only person he leaves behind. The only members of his family who are still alive are his two children and the spouses they chose to share their lives with: Paul and Shannon Dauber of Seattle, and Jane Dauber and Todd Connor of Seattle. Walt was a loving grandparent who showered his four grandkids, Celia Connor, Carson Dauber, Ryan Dauber, and Mason Dauber, with his love and care.
In addition to his dedication to the clients he served and the practice of law in general, Walt had many interests and passions outside of the legal profession, including fishing, cooking for his family and friends, and traveling. He had the wonderful fortune to visit many various places all over the world, but the trips to Hawaii that he took with his children (and, more importantly, his grandchildren) stand out as the most meaningful in his memories.
He had the opportunity to travel quite a bit throughout his life. Walt was grateful for his retirement home in the mountains to the north of Phoenix since it allowed him to escape the severe winters in Yakima. The family would like to extend their sincere appreciation to all of Walt’s cherished friends in Yakima, as well as the employees at Fieldstone Orchard Park, where Walt has called home for the past several years.
