Leonard Ernest Dorcas, Sr. went to be with the Lord at 10:50 in the morning on April 30, 2017 in the arms of his wife and surrounded by family at his home in Bothell, Washington at the age of 92. Len was born and raised in Seattle, Washington. He is preceded in death by his parents Michael and Katherine, and older siblings Nellie and Margaret. He leaves his loving wife of 70 years, Alice, as well as five children, nine grandchildren and three great grandchildren. After high school, Len joined the Coast Guard and served in World War II as a Seaman First Class. Following his time in the military, Len was a distinguished 747 Captain for Northwest (Orient) Airlines, spending the majority of his career flying overseas. Len retired from flying in 1984. Len and Alice spent their years enjoying time on their boats and RVs alongside their family in some of their favorite places like the Oregon Coast and the Gulf Islands/Desolation Sound. The highlight of Len’s retirement was any time spent with his family, especially grandkids. Len’s funeral will be at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church on Saturday, May 6th at 11am. A graveside service at Floral Hills Cemetery and celebration of life at Purdy and Walters at Floral Hills Funeral Home in Lynnwood, WA will follow the service. Special thanks to the staff at Bonadventure North Creek for their help and compassion towards the Dorcas family during this time. In lieu of flowers, donate to your favorite Veterans Charity.
