Obituary of Lee Ivan Kinart

Please share a memory of Lee to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

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.  


Lee is preceded in death by his parents and all six of his siblings.  


He is survived by his wife of 66 years, Jeanne of Washougal, WA, daughter Pamela (Paul) Ethington of Richland, WA, son David Lee Kinart of Washougal, WA, granddaughter Deirdre (Joe) Wells, grandson Zachary (Jessica) Ethington, 4 great grandchildren, Madelynn, Oliver, Leona and Killian all of Puyallup, WA, and numerous nieces and nephews.
