Stanley Vint Butchart Jr.
2/26/1926 – 3/20/2020

Stanley Butchart, of Burien Washington, passed peacefully Friday afternoon at the age of 94 surrounded by family in his home following a long battle with pancreatic cancer and congestive heart failure. Born in Prosser Washington and named after his father, he grew up doing farm chores, spent time in Seattle and Kirkland during his early years and graduated from Kittitas High School. He developed a passion for the out of doors. He served in the Army medical corps during the Korean conflict, stationed in Germany. He owned and operated the Swuak Ski Bowl on Blewett Pass, was a mountain climber, avid hiker, member Mountain Rescue Council, sailor, boat builder, racer, race committee volunteer, gardener (famous for corn and tomatoes), square dancer and downhill skier, father, grandfather and great-grand-father.

He married Joyce Hitt in June of 1954 and they celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary in 2019. He worked at the Boeing Company for 39 years, and enjoyed trying to clarify and fully understand aerodynamics and how aircraft fly. Affectionately known as “Grumpy” to his family, he will be missed by family and friends. He is survived by his wife, Joyce Butchart, two married sons, Richard & Denece Butchart and Larry & Janet Butchart, 7 grandchildren, and 18 great-grand-children.
