Brookside Funeral Home & Crematory
Kenneth B. Donahoo, 72, passed away unexpectedly on June 2, 2019 at Astria Regional Medical Center as a result of complications from a heart attack. Ken was born on October 14, 1946 in Ellensburg to Ralph and Emma Donahoo. He attended school in Grandview, WA, graduating from Grandview High School in 1965.
After serving proudly in the United States Air Force Ken returned to the Yakima Valley where he graduated from Yakima Valley College. For many years he worked for the Noel Corporation until Ken and his wife, Jo, purchased the Little Dutch Inn, where he worked until retirement.
Ken was a kind, helpful man who enjoyed playing pool, chatting with his customers at the Dutch, working on his computer and figuring out solutions to all sorts of problems. In retirement, Ken and Jo traveled extensively in their motor home with their two Wire Fox Terriers, Archie and Addie, visiting 37 states before his final trip.
He is survived by his wife of 27 years, Jo Clark Donahoo and his daughter, Kim Donahoo. Ken is also survived by his brothers, Harold and Wendell Donahoo and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. He is preceded in death by his parents and sisters, Geraldine McClaughry and Judy Nagle. Ken will be eagerly greeted by Heidi, Goldie, Murphy, Amigo, Snoopy, Zelda, Zach and Chester at the Rainbow Bridge.
