Jim Hallenbeck

James (Jim) Robert Hallenbeck, 72 of Oak Harbor, WA passed away Thursday July 17, 2014 following a bicycle accident at Deception Pass State Park.

Jim was born to the late Ervin and Betty Hallenbeck on May 19th, 1942 in Alderwood Manor, WA. He graduated from Edmonds High School in 1961, after which he attended Warner Pacific College in Portland, OR. In September of 1966 Jim enlisted in the United States Army, where he served at the U.S. Army Medical Hospital in Stuttgart Germany until the end of his service and subsequent honorable discharge in 1972.

Jim then went into business with his brother Ken, with whom he formed Hallenbeck Brothers Plumbing in Snohomish County, WA. After a downturn in the housing Market, Jim and Ken moved to Trout Lake, WA forming their second business, Hallenbeck Brothers Trucking. Eventually, Jim found his way to Trout Lake Farms, where he worked as the mill manager for more than 20 years, ultimately moving to the Ephrata, Wash. mill until his retirement in 2007.

Jim was an avid reader and wine connoisseur and also possessed a true love of travel. Additionally, he treasured the outdoors enjoying bicycling, backpacking and cross country skiing, spending a great deal of his personal time engaging in these activities. During his retirement years Jim successfully combined all of his interests, spending several years bicycling, backpacking and wine touring throughout Europe. Above all else, Jim found the most pleasure in sharing his time and interests with his family and friends. His friendliness, love and depth of character will be deeply missed by all who knew him.

Jim is survived by his brother Ken Hallenbeck and his sisters Mary Hobson, Juli Johnson and Judi Hallenbeck.
