Teece D’Angelo, a familiar face to Papa Murphy’s customers in Anacortes, poses for a photo in front of the Commercial Avenue business’s new storefront sign. Anacortes Papa Murphy’s owner Jeff D’Angelo and wife Penelope have invested more than 20 years of time and talents into this popular shop, employing dozens of young people along the way. The corporate logo has changed, but the crew at Papa Murphy’s continues to provide consistently fresh, ready-to-go-in-the-oven pizzas.
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
