Chip Fackrell, our beloved son, husband, father, brother and friend was sent to Almon Duane Fackrell and Miriam Tucker Fackrell on November 23rd, 1964 in Long Beach, California. His childhood was spent in the pleasant suburbia of Huntington Beach. Chip was involved in sports and his family's church as a young man, and traveled to London, England as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.|
When Chip returned home a friend encouraged him to work for a local car dealership. Here he found his drive and lifetime career. In 1988, Chip relocated to Gresham, Oregon; and fell in love with the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Chip soon found his home and mentor in the Thomason Toyota group with David Swanson. When David asked Chip to move and work with him in his new dealership, Chip jumped at the chance and new opportunity, and happily moved to Kirkland, Washington.
Within weeks he met 19 year old Tiffany Love Israel; an employee of the dealership. Upon meeting over a sale of a car the two joined a group of friends to celebrate, and they found themselves locked into mesmerizing conversation. This was it; with only one “date” the couple never spent a day apart, and quickly moved in together, with the spoken promise to tell their grandchildren of their rapid romance.
On July 24th, 1994 Chip and Tiffany were married on Tiffany's family's estate in Arlington, Washington, with Ken Committee acting as Best Man, and Compassion Israel; the bride's Sister serving as Maid of Honor. Their young married life was full of spontaneous trips to Oregon, fishing trips with friends, boating trips to the San Juan's, playing “The Game” at local hot spots with best friend Adam Larson, and many others. Chip’s success rose with each year, and the pinnacle of his career was the day he opened his own dealership, with friends Adam Larson and Steve Krohn.
In 1998, the couple were blessed with the birth of their daughter; Audrey Love Fackrell. Chip found himself in love all over again, and a new passion was discovered; fatherhood. Then in 2003, they welcomed another child, a son, Henry Almon Fackrell into their lives. With his birth their family was complete.
Vacations, parenthood and love ensued, and stayed with them the rest of his life.
