Richard Martin Knebusch passed away November 28, 2019 in Seattle, WA. “Marty” was the youngest of 5 children born to Jim and Kathleen Knebusch on March 26, 1971 in Yakima, Washington. He graduated from West Valley High School in 1989, and later CWU, receiving his BA in Marketing.
Marty loved being outdoors and was an avid skier and runner which he enjoyed sharing with his two sons, Nathan and Parker. He was so very proud of the young men his sons had become and never missed an opportunity to share their accomplishments with others. Marty had a loving network of friends and co-workers scattered between Yakima and Seattle, where he worked as a client adviser for USI Insurance Services.
Marty is survived by sons Nathan and Parker Knebusch of Ballard, WA, brothers Jim (Laurie) Knebusch, Jon (Teri) Knebusch, Ryan (Marlena) Martin, Shawn (Kimberly) Parkey, and Rick Megley, sisters Jackie Ruiz (Bill), Cindy (Jeff) Parkey, Kelly Waddell, and Cindy Marie Furgerson, and step-mother Arlene Knebusch. He was preceded in death by his parents.
