An Everett native, he attended Rosehill School, South Junior High School and was a member of the Everett High Class of 1955. He played basketball at Santa Clara University, then returned to the northwest to continue his education. He graduated from Seattle University with a Bachelor of Commercial Science, worked for the Weyerhaeuser Company and returned to Seattle University completing a Bachelor of Science in Natural Science. A member of ROTC at Seattle University, he served in the United States Army at Fort Sill, OK. He received his Doctor of Medicine in Medicine and Surgery from the University of Washington in 1973 and moved to New York City to complete a residency at Harlem Hospital / Columbia University Medical Center in Family Medicine. He came home to Everett and joined the medical practice of Doctors Ed Chase and George Moore before opening his own practice. In addition, he served for many years as an Emergency Room Physician at Everett General Hospital. During his years of practice, Doctor Joe was known for never turning a patient away regardless of their ability to pay. His greatest joy in life was his six children and their many activities. Golf and basketball were his favorites, Susan managed the swim team responsibilities and he enjoyed video recording many hours of the Reichmann children on sports fields, fishing at Island Lake, at Betty Spooner dance recitals, in gyms, pools and at the country club. He loved Johnny Carson, the Beach Boys and Peter, Paul and Mary; had a lifelong thirst for knowledge, and computers; enjoyed midnight cigar parties, visiting Susan's Canadian cousins; and of course, golf! He was known for his very dry wit and easy smile, kindness to animals and people, and lack of pretension. A memorial service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, August 11, 2018 at Evergreen Funeral Home, 4504 Broadway, Everett, WA 98203. A luncheon will follow in Mukilteo.

So great that we are at the cabin where we first met Joe when Susan brought him here. We took him fishing and he immediately became part of the extended Fairbairn family. Much love and hugs to you all.
