Obituary of Joseph Morales

Joseph G. Morales of Bellingham, WA passed away peacefully on April 12th, 2008 under the excellent care of Whatcom Hospice and Bellingham Health Care. He was 77 years old. Joe was born on December 27th, 1930 in Mountain View, CA, the eldest of six children. He had a very full, productive and active life. He spent a good amount of his early life in the Army stationed at both Fort Ord in Monterey, CA and in Germany. Following his military career he gathered his creative abilities and successfully developed a comfortable life for his ever growing family. His efforts and generosity were not limited to his own immediate household but extended to his younger siblings as they began life. His selfless ability to share followed him every day of his life. Following his retirement from IBM he moved to Bellingham where he pursued with great passion and vigor doing so many of the things he was unable to do while he supported his family. He and his wife were avid walkers. He loved great seafood, fine wine, walks along Bellingham Bay and the Pacific Ocean, all family functions and holidays and traveling to Hawaii. He is survived by his wife Lorraine A. Morales of Bellingham, his son Joseph L. Morales and his family of Las Vegas, NV, Carol L. Kernion and her family of Pflugerville, TX, David E. Morales and his family of Canby, OR, Michael A. Belair and his family of Portland, OR, Marc R. Belair of Bellingham, Denise M. Shackelford and her family of Modesto, CA, and Diane M. Belair and her family of Sacramento, CA. He is also survived by two younger brothers and his younger sister and their families, countless grandchildren, great grandchildren, and many, many friends. His infectious laughter and natural charm will be missed by so many who loved him.
