David Lee Dagnie, aged 87, peacefully passed away on February 17th, 2024. Born in Everett, Washington, on March 20th, 1936, to Earl and Ina Dagnie.

David pursued his passion for Mechanical Engineering at the University of Washington, where he honed his skills for a remarkable career ahead. He dedicated himself to engineering, contributing his expertise to Georgia Pacific in Bellingham, Washington.

In 1968, he united in marriage with Gloria, his cherished wife. He raised two wonderful daughters, Didi and Lisa. A lover of family adventures, David delighted in sailing the San Juans aboard “Classy Cat,” the family’s cherished 34ft Catalina.

David’s interests were as diverse as they were enriching. He found solace in the harmonies of classical music, particularly Bach and Mozart, and found peace in the beauty of birdwatching and the art of culinary exploration.

Known for his determination, David was a model of persistence. He never shied away from challenges, ensuring that every task was completed with precision and dedication.

His kindness and compassion knew no bounds. David’s gentle spirit extended to his cherished pets, notably Duffy and McGregor, whom he cared for with unwavering tenderness.

David is survived by his devoted wife, Gloria, his loving daughters, Dixie Johnson and Lisa Hough, and his adoring grandchildren, Nicole, Dagnie, Wes, Matt, Will, and Courtney. He is also survived by his brother-in-law, Larry Quackenbush.

David was preceded in death by his beloved parents, Ina and Earl Dagnie, and his dear brother, Bob Dagnie.

  1. My condolances to Gloria and their family. I worked with Dave at GP for many years. He was great to work with and you could count on him. His designs and drawings were first rate and he was always pleasant and professional. He was just an all around good guy and will be missed.
