Kevin E. Soule, 39, a lifelong resident of the Peninsula, died May 19, 2018 while fishing on his beloved Willapa Bay. The eldest of two sons born to Ernest and Yvonna “Bonnie” Soule, Kevin was born in South Bend on July 19, 1978. He grew up in Nahcotta, attended Ocean Park elementary school and at an early age began helping his father fish commercially.

Kevin graduated from Ilwaco High School in 1997. He worked with his father Ernie as a commercial fisherman and steamer clam farmer his entire career. He also worked for the Washington State Department of Agriculture coordinating the spartina eradication program in the bay.

He and Heather Unruh were married September 15, 2011 and resided in Nahcotta until building their home in Long Beach.
