Gregory M. Ploub

Greg was a one-of-a kind person with friends ranging from the homeless to music's superstars. He grew up in Eugene, Oregon, where his sister Geri Edwards and niece Laura and nephew Paul still live.

Greg was a generous and passionate advocate for the weak or vulnerable. During the last years of his life, he was a tireless volunteer for the Seattle AIDS Support Group at Dunshee House. He never failed to offer support to people newly diagnosed with HIV.

He was creative and bursting with energy. He usually had dozens of projects underway at a time. Some he actually finished!

Our friend Greg died on Tuesday evening, October 13, at Swedish Hospital with his sister and friends by his side. If he knew that we were there, he must have been very comforted. More than anything else, Greg loved his friends and family, and they were with him to the end.

There will be a gathering to remember Greg at Dunshee House (303 17th Ave. E.) at 6:00 p.m. Monday, October 19. Donations in his name may be made to Dunshee House in his memory by going to www.dunsheehouse.org.



Michael Bartholomew, 1960-2009

Michael Bartholomew, 49, of Seattle passed away on September 10, 2009 after a brief illness at Swedish Medical Center, Cherry Hill. Mike was born on August 19, 1960 in Wooster, Ohio, but had lived in Seattle since 1989. Mike was a self-employed general contractor specializing in remodeling and upgrades of private homes. He was preceded in death by his parents Richard and Kathy Bartholomew, and is survived by his five brothers and sisters. Although he had no close relatives in the Northwest, he was always surrounded by his adopted family, including John and Linda Green and Jeff VanSickle as well as many friends, acquaintances and loved ones in the city he had adopted as his home.

A celebration of Mike's life will be held on October 24, 2009 at Seattle Unity Church (200 Eighth Ave N, Seattle, WA 98109) at 1 p.m. All are welcome to attend. For details, please contact Jeff VanSickle at deilfin@comcast.net.
