June 11,1956 – July 21,2018
Beloved son, father, brother, uncle, friend and co-worker, Greg Vaughn passed away after a short illness at his home on July 21, 2018. Greg was born in Bellingham, WA and moved to Seattle as a child. He graduated Tyee High School in 1975, and went to work for United Airlines in 1976. He retired 35 years later.
Greg is survived by daughter Erin Vaughn (Shane Cloud), son Keenan (Pamela) Vaughn and grandson Gunnarr Gregory Vaughn. He also leaves behind his mother June Vaughn, sister Linda (Richard) Pratt, brother Fredrick Vaughn (Sally Hale), niece Carrie (Joe) Kinan and grand-niece Hadley. He was very fond of his many aunts, uncles, cousins, friends and co-workers at United Airlines.
Greg loved being outdoors on his boat and riding his motorcycle. He also enjoyed camping with his kids and dogs, Friday and Rebel. Greg was proud of his Unitarian Universalist background, and his Icelandic heritage. Most of all he was elated to be called “Afi” when his grandson Gunnarr was born.
A private service will be held in August for the immediate family. A larger event will be in Kent, WA on Saturday, October 6 at the Kent Eagles #362 from 2 to 9 p.m.
Be strong, be kind, be loving to your fellow beings. As Greg always said, “don’t sweat the small stuff.”
