Lee Ivan Kinart of Washougal, Washington passed away on July 2, 2019 in Vancouver, WA. He was born on May 17, 1932 in Modale, Iowa to Clarence and Leona Kinart as one of 7 children. They later settled in the Camas-Washougal area, where Lee graduated from Washougal High School.
Lee served in the Air Force, and worked at the paper mill in Camas, WA for 19 years. After retiring from the mill, he partnered as a housing contractor, eventually branching out on his own. He built many houses in the local Camas and Washougal area, as well as Skamania County.
He loved sports, having played them at Washougal High School, and later as a fan and spectator. Naturally, the Sea Hawks and Mariners were special teams. He also enjoyed touring Oregon and Washington with his wife, Jeanne in their RV.
