You can request a copy of his obit from Washington State Library, www.secstate.wa.gov/library/ask.aspx. They charge depending on how much time it takes to find the obit in the newspaper microfilm but I've never been charge when I've told them where and when the person died.However, they are about two weeks behind so you might want to contact Clark County Gen. Soc, www.ccgs-wa-.org and see how much they charge and when you can expect to receive a copy.
