Brian R. Hietala, 60

Brian R. Hietala, 60, passed away peacefully at his home in Kennewick, Wash., on June 24, 2019. He’d fought liver cancer for the past two years and was “fine” until the end. Brian and Diane enjoyed more than 38 years of marriage and had four wonderful children: Amanda (Daniel) Holliday (and granddaughter, Alexandra and grandsons, Mason and Jackson Watts), Clinton (Megan) Hietala, Richae (Britton) Omel (and granddaughter, Irina) and Kellen Hietala. Brian enjoyed nothing more than when all of his children and grandchildren were gathered together. He loved watching sports, but loved it even more when it was one of his children playing. He shared his passion for sports with his children, as well as his taste in music: Boston, AC/DC, Iron Maiden, Eagles and more. Brian made great memories with and for his children.

Brian is survived by his wife, Diane, at the family home; his mother, Sarah Hietala of Coeur d’Alene; sisters, Carol Anderson of St. Maries and Gayle (Gary) Schenkenberger of Coeur d’Alene, as well as two aunts and numerous nieces and nephews, whose company he enjoyed immensely.

Please join us for a celebration of Brian’s life from 1 to 3 p.m. on July 13, 2019, in the event room at Edgar Brown Memorial Stadium, 601 N. 18th Ave., Pasco, Wash.
