Clifford W. “Chip” Davidson

Clifford W. “Chip” Davidson, age 83, died peacefully on February 18, 2015 surrounded by his loving family, following a brief illness.

Chip was born on January 24, 1932 in Perrysburg, OH to Earl and Dorothy Davidson. Upon graduation from high school, he moved to Wyoming and worked on the family ranch. He served 4 years in the Air Force, then attended the University of Texas, Austin where he received his degree in accounting. It was while living in Texas that he met and married the love of his life, Joan Marie Delaney; they remained very happily married for the next 58 years.

After graduation, Chip and Joan moved to Dallas where Chip worked for a national accounting firm. They later settled in the Kenmore, WA area in 1961 and Chip continued to work for the same firm before owning his own CPA firm.

During his lifetime, Chip was involved with many organizations: Davidson’s Marina; North Lake Marina; Davidson, Davidson & Hawkins CPA Firm; Kenmore and Skykomish Fire Departments; Studebaker Club; Antique Studebaker Club; Quiet Birdmen; AOPA; MMOPA; MMSTF; Stevens Pass Ski Resort; Northshore Rotary; Flying Heritage Museum; Sewer & Water Commissioner; Northshore Rotary, Northshore Scholarship Foundation; Northshore Schools Foundation; and Inglewood Golf Club.

Chip was a wonderful aviator, antique car enthusiast, husband, father, friend, and confidant. He was a generous man, loved by many.

Chip is survived by his loving wife Joan; sons Bill (Lorri), Jim (Joni), and Tom (Anne); 7 grandchildren; two brothers Harold (Edith) and Edwin (Diana); and several nieces, nephews and cousins. Chip was preceded in death by his parents.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, March 21st, 2:00 pm at Bothell United Methodist Church, 18515 – 92nd Ave NE, Bothell, WA.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Chip Davidson Memorial Scholarship Fund through either Northshore Rotary or any Banner Bank branch.
