+ The Olympian: Longtime Port of Olympia commissioner, Bob VanSchoorl, dies at 74

“Bob VanSchoorl, who served 14 years on the Port of Olympia commission and had a hand in bringing Olympia Farmers Market to its current site and developing the Port Plaza, died Thursday at home. He was 74.

“His wife, Meg, said Sunday that he died as a result of a rare and aggressive form of cancer after a recent diagnosis.

“VanSchoorl was appointed to the port commission in 1994 after former Commissioner Sam Bradley stepped down.”

“VanSchoorl lost his seat on the commission to George Barner in 2007.”

“A celebration of life is planned, but probably not until next year, Meg said,” by Rolf Boone, The Olympian.

Blessings to the VanSchoorl family.
