December 1, 1946 ~ May 24, 2023 (age 76) 76 Years Old


Donald Gene “Don” Bakker, 76, lifelong resident of Lake Stevens, passed away at his home on May 24, 2023.

Don was born on December 1, 1946 in Everett, Washington to Albert & Minerva (Melaas) Bakker.  He grew up in Lake Stevens, graduating high school there in 1965. He was gifted with a mechanical aptitude from a young age and enjoyed creating and fixing all sorts of things. This carried into his career as a machinist and then working for the Snohomish County P.U.D. as a mechanic for 30 years, retiring in 2009.

Don always had a project of some kind going on and enjoyed helping others.  He always strived to be a hard worker no matter what he did, making sure that he did his best to provide for his family. He enjoyed classic cars, hiking and his beloved dogs.  He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.

Don is survived by his children Rick (Molly Flatten) Bakker and Sherry (Jason) Brunner; sisters Linda (Ed) Powell and Maxine Scott, as well as six grandchildren and many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
