State Fish and Wildlife salmon and steelhead biologist Steve Foley passed away on Sunday, March 7, from an apparent heart attack at the age of 57.
Foley worked for almost 30 years at state Fish and Wildlife with the majority of those years at the regional Mill Creek office.
“He was all that was good about fish management,” said Curt Kraemer, a longtime friend and retired state Fish and Wildlife biologist. “We did a lot of the same things, and our life together was a long blur of great times. Foley lived life at a passion and no one lived life more fully than he did.”
“It is a huge loss across the board, and he was a passionate outdoorsman,” Kraemer said.
A celebration of life will be held 2 p.m. Thursday, March 11, at the Nile Country Club, 6601 244th St. S.W. in Mountlake Terrace.
There will be a card and condolence book at the state Fish and Wildlife regional office, 16018 Mill Creek Blvd. in Mill Creek.
