Obituary

Herbert David “Herb” Whaley
November 6, 1939 – May 4, 2021
Cashmere, Washington

Herbert David “Herb” Whaley, 81, a longtime Cashmere resident, passed away peacefully on May 4, 2021 at Central Washington Hospital, with his loving family by his side.

Herb was born on November 6, 1939 in Sevier County, Tennessee to Austin and Blanche Whaley. He grew up in Tennessee, but when he came to Washington in 1957, there were relatives already here. In fact, a lot of folks had come from Sevier County and settled in this area. This is when he met his life partner, Marie Lowe. They were married in 1960.

His first jobs in the area were in the logging and fruit industry. In 1970, he went to work in law enforcement for the City of Cashmere. After two years, he became a Chelan County Deputy Sheriff. A few years later, he took the position of National Forest Service Patrol, a job he loved and held until his retirement in 1989. He helped coordinate and went on many search and rescue missions to help injured hikers.

An avid fisherman and hunter, Herb spent much of his retirement fishing and hunting with friends and family. He loved to go on extended motor home trips with Marie and winters in Arizona. In addition, he enjoyed some cruises and trips to Hawaii. A fun retirement until illness slowed him down in 2014.

Herb was preceded in heaven by his parents and baby sister, JoAnn.

Herb is survived by his wife Marie of sixty years, his daughter: Carol Whaley of Cashmere, his son: David Whaley of Cashmere; his brother: Willie Whaley of East Wenatchee, his brother: Ralph Whaley of Moses Lake, his sister: Tricia (Chris) Hiatt of Cashmere; and his grandchildren: Ryan (Danielle) Whaley of Cashmere, Kaley (Jason) Chan of Alexandria, VA, and Luke Schall of Standwood, WA.

Being mindful of the current pandemic concerns, there will be a graveside service to commemorate a life well lived. This will be at 12:00 pm on Saturday, May 29th, 2021 at Cashmere Cemetery. You are invited to join friends and family for refreshments immediately following the service at the family residence 310 Orchid Street in Cashmere from 1:00-3:00pm.

You are also invited to view Herb’s Online Tribute page at www.HeritageMemorialChapel.com to share a memory and condolence. Arrangements are in the care of Heritage Memorial Chapel.

Remember the best times,
The laughter, the song.
The good life I lived
While I was strong.

I spent my first day on the job with you, Herb. I have many memories that will remain with me, from keeping up on the Monday night football game while we worked nights to the day we caught 95 perch at Fish Lake. RIP my friend.
