WWI Veterans

This downtown mural by artist/historian Bill Mitchell pays tribute to two Anacortes men who fought in World War I. On the left is Wallie Funk, Sr., a mural crafted after a photograph taken in France in 1917. On the right is Charles Pinson, USN, USS Chabaulip, 1917. Funk’s son Wallie owned the Anacortes American in the Fifties and Sixties; his friend Dr. Ray Pinson, served the community as dentist and mayor.

About Photographer Steve Berentson

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.
