"One year since your Heaven Day (belated...I'm so sorry!)...I know you are watching your beautiful family from above...I know you are so proud of them. What an amazing legacy you've left here on Earth. I am so glad I was afforded the opportunity to meet you. I am deeply grateful for the inexpressibly special friendship I have in Dustin and Catherine and what a joy it is to me to watch your amazing grandsons grow up (it makes me want even more to move to Seattle so I can see them MUCH more often!!!). May Pam be comforted in those moments when the memories and missing wash so powerfully over her. May you send her undeniable signs that you still see her and love her more than ever. Please send Patrick my love and smoke a cigar with him for me (can't imagine how good the cigars are in Heaven!!!). All my love, Alli"

"I can't believe it's been a year. The days just evaporate. Sometimes it seems so unfair how life just moves on.

A day doesn't go by where I don't recall  a great memory of my time with my dad. There are so many things I do as an adult that he taught me. I think he'd like to see my recent interest in history, something he always had such a passion for. When I'm in the garage working on my cars, he is with me. I am in complete solitude during those times, but never alone. I feel his presence then, my dad is there watching with approval as I expand my skills from our first car restoration so many years ago.

Suncadia has become more special since his passing. It was the last trip he and mom took to Seattle. He helped me hang the TVs and get things setup and working. His initials are carved down by the river; something I did the day after he passed as I mourned his death, by myself, alone with my thoughts.

It's been a difficult year for so many reasons, yet also a year full of hope for so many others. 2016 is here and the world will continue to forge ahead. I'll continue to be the man my dad raised me to be. I'll continue to attempt to raise my sons, with the love that my parents raised me. I'll continue to hurt and miss and remember. Because in the end, when things are said and done, it is the love and the memories that cannot be taken away. They are with us forever. Thank you dad for giving me a life full of them."

"It is hard to believe that a year has passed since Vaughn has been gone.  He was such a kind, loving, beautiful person.  I am so incredibly blessed to have had you as my father in law, but you always were like a second dad to me. Today I am remembering the countless ways you made our family laugh so hard we cried.  You were an amazing Papa to Carson & Cooper and we continue to remember you every day.

I am so grateful to you for teaching your son, Dustin to be the amazing man that he is.  I knew that he was for me when I saw the loving and caring way you cared for your Pam.  It is through you that I have been blessed to have such a wonderful partner in life.  You will be forever missed and always remembered.  

In times like this I look to this poem to help during times of deep sorrow:

God didn’t promise days without pain,
Laughter without sorrow,
Nor sun without rain,
But He did promise,
Strength for the day,
Comfort for the tears and
Light for the way.

Love and miss you Vaughn so much,

"Morning my love as I wake this morning it's hard to believe it's been a year today that you were called home.  It's not gotten easier and I miss and think of you daily.  I will spend the day listening to your singing from the 3 CDs you made for me and watching family outings on all the CDs you always made for our family.  You will always be with me Vaughn in my heart and memories.   The way I carry on is knowing we will be together one day in eternity .  Rest in peace my Vaughn love always and forever , ❤️❤️❌⭕️"

"I just came across a letter written to me by vaughn want to share it with you. dated 5/12/2005

Hi Auntie Jean,
Thanks for the great picture of Tammy and Dan's new baby, She sure is small. I will be sure to show it to Pam when she gets home from work tonight.  Thanks for the updates of the baby.  All we can do is keep you in our prayers, the most important thing of all.  We don't always understand God's reason or plan, but we do have faith and believe in him.  We also know the power of prayer and practice it daily.  Looking at the picture you sent us made me want to write a little poem for Tammy and the baby.  It's nothing major, just a little poem that comes from my heart.

A Mother's Love
I have watched the sunsets as another day passes by. And have marveled at the clouds and God's painted sky.

I have received the glorious love of my own beautiful wife.  I have witnessed the miracle of God's gift of life.

I have watched as a seed planted deep in the ground.  Has grown to be the most beautiful Rose I have ever found.

I have been blessed with so many wonders from above.
And learned the true meaning of God's gift of love.

Life has so many beautiful and wondrous things to see.  Like the Eagle souring high to its nest in the tree.

But all that I have seen on earth and from above.  Are small compared to the wonder of a Mother's Love.

I am so proud to have you as my Auntie Jean.  You will never know. And the teachings that you passed on to your daughters shows in each and every one of your girls.

You should be so proud of the great job you have done as a Mother, Wife and teacher.  You truly are a gift from God to all of us.  You walk the path that God has led you to and never seem to falter.  I have
learned so much from you over the years about life and how to deal
with it while still keeping the faith.

For that and a thousand other lessons I have learned from you, I thank you.  And I am forever proud to call you my Beautiful, wonderful, thoughtful, loving, Auntie Jean

God Bless and I love you Vaughn"

"I was so saddened to hear of your passing. I had lost father at a early age and the closest I ever got to having him back was you. I have so many wonderful memories of you and all the kids. I can see you and Billy walking hand in hand in your scout uniforms. From canoes to fishing poles to the van to hunt ghosts you were so large. You were a man who showed us what is meant to be a man to take care of your family your kids your neighbors your community. Always there was some project brewing that you were completely invested in until you completed that task and then on to the next Big Thing. When I think of you I think of family of love and how you made all of us try robe better people. I love you I love your family and I will never forget the lessons you taught me. I  see you  on the flip side and I will honor you by being the best me I can be. Love you forever and always HERO"

Jeremys wife..I sure do miss you, I am sorry for being mad your not here I miss you terribly you have a way with  people and you made me feel like I was part of you family, remember when you went hunting that one time and brought back an elk and you had Pam make us dinner & you looked at me with that silly grin & asked me... so Ann do you like the meatballs? Grin, Grin, Gring :) ... yes uncle Vaugh they are really good , different but really good.. well good he says, so what kind of meat do you think it is? I looked at him dumbfounded .. I am a Diego Cali Girl .. I guess Cow meat uncle Vaughn, nope its Elk - I wanted you to try something new and I knew you wouldn't of tried it if I told you... he was right about that, but I am glad he did because to this very day 14 years later I only prefer eating my meatballs with Elk meat, it's healthier and yummy. I love you Vaugh and I am not mad at you anymore for not being around for many more camping nights with a cold beer and great fellowship. I know your in OUR FATHER'S HANDS.

"Miss you Uncle Claw.  Man, I could sit and listen to you for hours.  Not like I had a choice, hahaha ;) One story would roll into another and you'd either have me laughing so hard my stomach was hurting, or so intrigued with ghost hunting or something you recently read I just couldn't leave.  I loved looking at all your pictures of your recent adventures with you.  I really wish we would have got to go hang out on your pontoon boat together.  I remember when you took us out on lake washington when we were boys.  That was so much fun.  Getting the chance to be out there all day with you. I remember when you and Aunt Pam came up to Whistler and went rafting with us. I dug for my first clams with you.  I shucked my first oyster with you.  I remember how sweet you always were to Pam and how you always called her your princess.  I hope I treat Kim the same way you always have treated Pam.  I loved sitting back and watching you and my mom sing karaoke together.  You made a damn good duet.  I think one of my favorite memories was when you took us fishing on a stream out near your cabin and we caught a trout.  I couldn't believe it.  I remember you got me all setup on the scooter when we were visiting up in Port Ludlow.  I rode that thing all over the place and thought it was the coolest thing ever.  I'll miss the times we just sat in the spa and talked for hours.  I'll never forget "Hung Kung Fooey'.  I miss you. Love you. -Ryan"

"Well, we haven't seen you for 30 years but we still think about you from time to time so I'd say you made a lasting impression. You were always so full of life, doing everything with 110% dedication and always with a smile. We often remember how enthusiastic you were about everything you decided to try. It didn't matter if it was skiing, biking, golfing or whatever, the Hubbards were all involved and had all the equipment and you were the fearless leader. If you thought your family would enjoy it then the attitude was damn the torpedos and full speed ahead, as evidenced by your Pacific Ocean fishing trip which required assistance from the US Coast Guard.
You always had a wide range of interests. When we read about your involvement in PIHA we had to laugh because an unusual activity like that was "so totally Vaughn".
We enjoyed the times we spent with you and your family very much. Thanks for the memories, Larry, Jamie, Karli, Mike and Kelly Kaiser"

"Pam and family,  what a terrible shock to read of you dear Vaughn's passing.  We have so many fond memories of him.  He was the first person to introduce himself to us when we moved in to Port Ludlow.
We were always impressed by his dedication to  his family.  I loved watching him with his grandkids, he was so patient and kind.  He treated you Pam, like a true Princess!  He never complained but so often you could tell he was in so much pain.  It didn't stop him from doing all those things he loved.  He will be missed terribly but has left a lasting legacy and loving memories for all.

Love, Nancy & Bob"

"Uncle Vaughn,

Thinking back over all the memories I've had with you, I can't help but smile and laugh. You were such a big personality in our family, always cracking jokes.  I think of the times that we came to visit you and Aunt Pam in Washington and you introduced Ryan, Trev and I to the great outdoors- boating, fishing and digging for clams. You even let us ride on the scooter, which I promptly drove into the ditch on the side of the road!  We also learned about all the delicious "fat" food as you called it;  when we were staying with you, we had the best meals :) I think about how you used to call yourself Uncle Claw and grab us and make us laugh.  We were always excited when you would come visit us in San Diego, even though I knew I would never get any sleep since I shared a wall with the den, where you and my mom would spend all night singing karaoke! The song Mustang Sally will always make me think of you.   Some of my last memories were seeing you at my wedding and also over Thanksgiving last year. I remember just before some of the cousins were heading to bed, you started to tell some of your favorite stories and had all of us laughing so hard.....like when you rode the horse into your school, or when you pretended to have a twin brother (Carl) so you could get two school lunches.  Those were just a few of my favorites. And that is how I will always remember you Uncle Vaughn, surrounded by family, telling stories and laughing. You were such a great uncle to us and I am so proud to be your niece and so fortunate for all the time we shared together. I will love and miss you always. xoxo Katie"

"Dear Uncle Fun,

Each passing of a loved one is painful, but the unexpected has a certain sting that is especially anguishing.
It reminds us of family and friends we have lost and how precious our time here is.
Vaughn was a unique person, one of a kind, that loved life, his family, friends, especially children and the outdoors.
He will be severely missed by all the lives he touched.
I hope you rest my special brother-in-law and friend, but knowing you, you will have enlisted the help of some poor soul in heaven to help you with a project.

Your sister, Patty"

Uncle Vaughn / Captain Ron, I will always remember you. I still can’t believe it. Thank you for being such a true gentleman to Pam.  You always took care of her, getting her anything she wanted at any time. She loved to be pampered and taken care of. This is what you enjoyed in your life, taking care of your beautiful princess.  We had a lot of good times together throughout our lifetime.  It didn’t matter how much pain you were in with your back, you would always wrestle with the kids, being Uncle Claw.  I always enjoyed listening to you and Aunt Patty singing duet karaoke.   Since Pam and I can’t sing we would just listen to you both and cheer you both on.  I will always remember MUSTANG SALLY, “hunngh”.   Vaughn you are my hero.  All the things you accomplished in your lifetime with your bad back.  You always brought the family together and you would never complain. When we saw the movie Captain Ron you got the nickname. If anybody has been in a boat with Vaughn you would know why.  Every time I see a Denny’s and KFC I will think of you and how much you enjoyed that food. You are probably up there already checking out their food. Until we meet again.

your brother Tom"

We just talked; seemed like yesterday, about getting together up here and going to so manyplaces we wanted to investigate.  I remember Debbie Knapp, Kathy Gavin and I were Vaughns "charlies" Angels with the Ghost hunting van.   Now you are our angel! You were such an incredible friend and partner with PIHA.  I look forward to hearing your voice on a recording some time letting me know you are right there with us. I wish you peace until we can meet again my friend. Pam & family I am so very sorry for your loss. He was amazing and will be missed by so many people.  Love you Vaughn."

"Oh My Vaughn,

You were just a skinny blonde Blue eyed white boy, crazy in love with my beautiful Niece Pam,The first time I laid eyes on you.
  Oh how Bob and I loved you and as our family grew and our children and grandchildren meet you there was always laughter as the Claw would come after them in your fun play with them and
When you would draw a bath for your Princess Pam I always wanted Uncle Bob to catch onto that but he  never did .

You were always singing and how we would love to hear you sing ,
But most of all we all knew how much you loved the Lord and your relationship you had with Jesus.
You were a Bible stomping Gospel Singing always praising the Lord.

My many  Cd's you sent me I play all the time. and I know you are singing now and not in pain.  For years you suffered in pain with your Back you  could  tell in your beautiful blue eyes but you never complained.

How you loved the outdoors and all the beauty God made for you to enjoy and you made sure you were out there praising and enjoying all he gave you.  
What an amazing Father, Grandfather, Husband , Nephew, son, friend you have been to watch. Quality time was one of your love languages that you poured on your family.
Boating, summer cabins, building your home and designing it, all these things you let me and Uncle Bob share with you how much fun we had living life as it came.
You will be truly missed you were one of a kind, a Champion for the Lord. You were so excited when your family was water Baptized and had a relationship with the Lord.You sent me a CD so I could watch it as if I was with you watching it happen.
Good Job my good and faithful servant I know those are the words Jesus whispered in your ear. Save me a good seat because I want to be next to you God willing.
The most important thing in your life is not what you do; its who you become. Thats what you will take into eternity.
your soul. God rest your soul my sweet Vaughn.
Love you forever and Always give kisses to Uncle Bob for me.
Love You
Auntie Jean"

This website is so wonderful and your letter to your Dad is truly beautiful. I love seeing all the photos.
To say I'm sorry is such a gross understatement...words are utterly inadequate. It's tragic and our hearts break with yours. I'm so glad I was able to meet and spend some time with your Dad. I'll always remember how much Patrick enjoyed and loved your parents. It was so much fun and so heart-warming to hear Carson and Cooper talking about him when we were at your house recently. Their love for him was so evident through their stories and smiles. When the Celebration of Life is over, the shock subsides, and the world continues to oddly and almost unfairly spin, please know that we will continue to pray and be here for you all...whenever, wherever, and however. You and your family are so dear to us and you all will never be alone in your pain.

"I was one of the first members to join PIHA with Vaughn.  I have so many fun memories of our trips with the group all over Washington.  I think one of the funniest times we all had is when Vaughn would always sit by the closest door out!  We all told him he was afraid of ghosts and he finally admitted it.  But the hardest part was getting Vaughn to talk with a whisper during our investigations then we all kept giggling which didnt help. We love you Vaughn we hold special so many memories and thank you for all of your hard work on the book as well as getting Kathy and I to Los Angeles to be on tv for our 15 minutes of fame.  Terry and I love you and thank you Pam for putting up with us and feeding us!"

"Dear Dad,
I couldn't think of a more fitting way to memorialize you than creating this website. With our shared love of technology, I know you would have done the same for me.

You have been my inspiration throughout my life. I lived every day to make you proud. In the end I know I did because you never once hung up the phone without telling me. I know you knew this, but I loved you too. You live on in me forever. Thank you for what you brought to my life as my father, my friend and my mentor.

Your loving son,
