Serres, David Lynch, 78, husband, father, and friend to all passed away peacefully on December 19, 2017 at his home in Washougal, WA.
The son of Ted and Nellie Serres, David grew up in Oregon City on the Serres family farm. A 1951 graduate of Oregon City High School, David earned numerous academic awards, including the Bausch & Lomb Honorary Science Award. He later earned a Bachelor of Science degree in electrical engineering from the University of Portland in 1961, and went on to pursue a successful management career that spanned 33 years in the Flight Management Systems division of the Boeing Commercial Airplane Company.
An avid train enthusiast, David often traveled with his wife Lorry to “chase trains” throughout the Pacific Northwest and beyond, and he merged his engineering skills with his passion by designing train layouts in his home. In his retirement, David enjoyed RVing in the couple’s motorhome, spending time with family, collecting model and toy trains, spoiling his beloved kitties, and meeting with fellow train enthusiasts of the Toy Train Operating Society (PNW).
David is survived by his devoted wife of 36 years Lorraine (Lorry) Prescott; his children, Ted Serres (Elaina), Susie Serres-Dedyo (Paul), Julie Serres (Trent Morrell): stepson Tom Oakley (Holly), stepdaughters Yvette Davis (David), and Yvonne Hamilton (Ken); grandchildren, Jason, Shay, Selah, Jolie, Geoffrey, Olivia (Zach), Danielle (Scott), Brianna, and Jenna. He was preceded in death by his brothers Jim and Don Serres, his son Chuck Serres, and his granddaughter Alyssa.
