The above provides his exact death date but doesn't really say where he died. I see you posted in San Joaquin Co. so I'm going to assume he died there.

There are two obituary volunteers in San Joaquin Co. Go to freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~obitl/volca.html
Scroll down to San Joaquin Co. and choose Sheri. If she can't find it, choose Brenda.

You can contact the Washington State Library, sos.wa.gov/library/obituaries.aspx for a copy of his obituary. They are free but taking 4-6 weeks now.

You might have quicker luck if you do a Google search for Grays Harbor Public Library.

I also found a Lee-Wiley Family Tree, trees.ancestry.com/tree/3651952/person/619338979 . They show a George M. Hughes, b. 20 Aug 1928 who died 2000, Aberdeen, Grays Harbor Co., WA.

His wife was Patsy A., b. 7 July 1937 who died 7 Dec 1993 in Olympia, Thurston Co., WA.

They had three children but no info available because they're still living.

Unfortunately I didn't find anything for Richard. Successful Searching!
