Walter Crombie

March 13, 1968 ~ March 24, 2022 (age 54)


We mournfully announce the passing of Walter Crombie, of Olympia, Wa. Walt passed away unexpectedly on March 24th, leaving those who loved and cherished him shocked and heartbroken.

Walt was born (and raised) here in Olympia at the historic St. Peters Hospital to parents’ James and Vonnie Crombie, on March 13th, 1968.

While Walt never married, he still lived a full life with more friends than you could count. Friendships meant alot to Walter.

After his  school years Walt worked many jobs including being a  maintenance worker at Olympia's Waldorf private school, a skilled and crafted carpenter for Skanska, and lastly a baker at his best friends local bakery.

Walt devoted most of his time to computer repairs, fixing/rebuilding cars, telling jokes and lending a helping hand. Walt's best years were being a member of the Alano club, where he shined the most of all. he met some of his favorite people there,  It was naturally a second home to him.

Walt gave the best advice, always knowing just what to say.. He helped many people get through their own recovery and many are still sober to this day thanks to him. His words made an impact. He really believed that everyone deserved to have a chance (or two).

Walter is preceded in death by both His parents James Crombie and Vonnie Sevedge,and his beloved dog Moose. It was very hard for Walt after losing both parents each passing within 2 years of each other. Walter has left behind his sisters Jeannette  App (Rich)  Debbie Musser (Steve), brother Darren  Crombie, his cousin Eldon, his nieces Amanda Leoni, Caroline App, Leah Musser, nephew Kyle Crombie, and his three children, Britney Crombie,Dayton Hodge-Crombie, Dylan Hodge -Crombie and his beloved dog Sheeba.

The family is left in shock of his passing , so please be patient  and know his celebration of life will be announced soon. They will post when the arraignments are made.

His children would love to have their fathers close friends and family join them in their farewell to their father, to hear stories of their own times with him. In doing so it will help them in their own grieving process.

In lieu of flowers the family is asking for you to consider donating to the Olympia Alano club, something Walt would be proud of.
