Daniel Arrington

Daniel Sterling Arrington, 81, passed away June 3, 2016, in Woodinville, Washington. He was born in Porter, Washington, March 13, 1935, to Norman J. Arrington and Dorothea (Voorhies) Arrington Rupp.

Dan grew up in Port Orchard and graduated from South Kitsap High School in Port Orchard in 1953. He attended Olympic College, spent four years in the U. S.

Known for his great sense of humor and storytelling, he loved to camp, travel and pan for gold, and to read and talk about space.
