Obituary

Tim G. Harasti

Timothy "Tim" George Harasti, 66, of Oak Harbor, Wash., passed away unexpectedly on Monday, January 20, 2020 in Everett at Providence Regional Medical Center.

Tim was born in Streator, Ill to George and Betty Harasti on July 28, 1953. He graduated high school in 1971 and married Cheryl Harrison in Las Vegas, Nev. on June 28, 1975.

In the United States Navy, Tim worked as a Steel Worker in the Seabees and retired at NAS Whidbey Island in 2002 as a Chief Petty Officer.

As a veteran of both Vietnam and the Gulf War, Tim was awarded two National Defense Medals, awards for Expert Pistol Shot and Expert Rifle Shot, five awards for Good Conduct, two Sea Service Deployment Ribbon awards, one Navy “E” Ribbon, one Navy Achievement Medal, one Humanitarian Service Medal, and four Navy and Marine Corps Overseas Service Ribbons.

He was involved in a skeet shooting club while stationed in Adak, Alaska and Whidbey Youth softball and baseball leagues. Tim loved being a coach, a hunter and fisherman, building in construction, and traveling with his wife and his dogs. He would give the shirt off his back to help anyone in need and never expected anything in return. He had great pride in pinning his eldest daughter, Danielle, every time she moved up rank in the Navy.

He is survived by his wife Cheryl Harasti; oldest daughter Danielle Saunders (Beau Bercegeay); daughter Amber (Shawn) Camp; son Tim (Tanya) Harasti; his mother Betty Harasti; and sister Kim Flynn. As well as 10 grandchildren and 1 great granddaughter.

Preceding Tim in death, are his father George Joseph Harasti on December 12, 2002; his son in law Thomas Arthur Vaughan Saunders on March 10, 2015; and his brother Kevin Michael Harasti on December 14, 2019.

The Harasti family suggests memorials in Tim’s memory may be donated to any Seabee Museum online, or by post; or to the Seabee Scholarship Association online at: https://www.seabee.org/.

The family wishes to extend our sincere thanks to all that have expressed condolences and prayers for our family.

A memorial service will be held in the Spring of 2020 in Lake Tahoe, Nev. for Tim and his brother, Kevin.

Cheryl-
I don't think I ever got to meet Tim, but I feel like I knew him through the many stories shared with me over the course of just a few years. For instance, I never hear "People Are Strange" without thinking of you and your wedding day. I am grieving for you, your family, and my own loss at never having met the man who by all accounts was a man amongst men.

I am so sorry to hear of Tim's passing. I was the HR Director at Volant and I always enjoyed working with him. He was smart, well liked and always had a great sense of humor. I knew that I could always go to him with questions and he'd give me answers and a smile. He will be sorely missed. My condolences to his family!! ~ Laura Cowan
