George M. Radich
Longtime resident and local optometrist George M. Radich, passed away on Saturday, May 28, 2011 at Fir Lane Health and Rehabilitation. He was 79.
George was born in Oakland, CA on February 19, 1932 to George M. and Dorotha (Williams) Radich Sr. He graduated from high school in Astoria, OR and received his doctorate at Pacific University in Forest Grove, OR in 1957. He married Patricia Marie Haberly in 1959 and began his practice in Shelton in 1963. George was on the school board for many years, served on the Port commission, and a member of the Shelton Rotary and the Lions Club.
In his younger days, he enjoyed hunting, fishing and playing golf. He enjoyed going to the casino and his local coffee klutches, where his social personality, coupled with his knowing nearly everyone, allowed him to discuss politics. He was also a very avid reader.
He is survived by his wife, Patricia and daughter Carol, both of Shelton. He was preceded in death by son, James Robert Radich. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the charity of one’s choice. At George’s request no services have been planned.
