Otto was not a very tall man, about 5'6", I would think. I remember that he had light brown hair and a rough voice. In some of the photos of him in his early years, he had lots of wavy hair. On 18 Dec 1917, Otto joined the U.S. Army, and was first sent to Columbus, OH for initial training. He was later sent to Camp Jones, Az for further training in the Cavalry. In March 1918, he was ordered to sail from Camp Merritt, NJ., to join the U.S. forces in Europe in World War I. Otto was a memberof "K" Company, 15th Cavalry while stationed in France. From what little he said about the war, Otto never left France. But military records show that he was muster gased twice. Otto was discharged from the Army on 29 Jun 1919 at Camp Custer, Battle Creek, MI. Otto worked many jobs. During World War II, Otto went to Hawaii and worked for the Navy Civil Engineers at the Pearl Harbor Navy Docks. Otto liked to go fishing, using long cane poles.

Died on Jul. 4, 2009 and resided in McMinnville, OR.

Service: Saturday, Jul. 11, 2009
Cemetery: Belle Passe


She leaves her loving husband of 46 years and best buddy, Al Hanks, children David and Lisa and grandchildren Diego, Thibaud and Guillaume. Memorial services will be held Saturday, July 11, 2009 at 1:00 pm at Chapel of Macy and Son.

Born in Salem, on October 28, 1943, Patricia was raised in Gervais by her parents Izorah "Kay" and Roscoe Colby, and was one of five sisters.

While attending Gervais High School, she was a cheerleader and championship softball pitcher. As a teen, she loved to wear pleated miniskirts and dance the night away. Music was a life-long passion, particularly jazz and rock and roll. Patricia always had a piano in the house and played beautifully.

"She was the prettiest girl I ever saw," Al remembers of their first meeting at the University of Oregon, where they were both undergraduates. A devoted, lifelong Ducks fan, she cheered on her football team during every game, dressed head to toe in yellow and green.

Patricia went on to earn a Fine Arts degree from the University of Nebraska, Omaha, in 1979, as well as a Master's in Museum Studies from California State University, Long Beach, in 1990. As an artist, she created oil, tole and watercolor paintings, as well as prints and jewelry.

Patricia enjoyed cross-country skiing, mountain biking, golfing, camping, hiking and flyfishing. She sought out new places to sightsee, walk, shop, ski, drink wine and eat cheese, and travelled extensively in the U.S., Europe and Asia.

She also enjoyed reading, cooking, gardening and indulging her sweet tooth; Godiva chocolates and Tillamook berry shakes were special favorites. She volunteered in many places, including the Master Gardener program, Air Force Family Services and various museums.

Patricia was a devoted, loyal, loving wife, mother and homemaker, though she didn't particularly like housework. She was fiercely protective of her children, and dearly loved her grandsons. The hole in our hearts will never be healed. She will be sorely missed.

Memorials may be given to Huningtons Corea c/o Macy and Son.
