He is survived by his wife, Marian; son and daughter, Susan Nelson and Tom Albright; Pete Nelson, son-in-law; his grandchildren, Stacy Albright, Troy Beachler, Jeff Albright, Devon Madden; and great-grandchildren, Layne and Vaughn McAuliffe and Theus and Ellie Madden.
Virg lived in Woodinville for over 60 years and owned his own excavating company, General Trenching & Excavating. He did excavation in Seattle, Everett and locally, including dredging the Sammamish Slough. He had a cabin at Ocean Shores and loved bringing his family and friends to enjoy the ocean. He loved fishing in Alaska and Canada. He built his own home, cabin and just about anything else he could envision. He had many interests and was always surprising his family with his next project. He created a beautiful yard with fruit trees and a pond. He started rebuilding a 1934 Ford Pickup when he was in his 80s. He was a generous person that was always ready to help a friend or family.
Never were the words, “They don’t make men like this anymore” more true.
He left a big hole in our hearts and will be deeply missed. A Celebration of Life is to be held on his birthday, Feb. 17 at the Hollywood School House at 1 p.m.
