A man of extraordinary energy and enthusiasm, Wallie had a lasting impact on Anacortes and leaves behind his devoted family and countless dear friends. He was a tireless cheerleader for his home towns of Anacortes and Oak Harbor. 

Among his many accomplishments, he was a key founder of the Anacortes Museum. The Wallie Funk Collection – about 10,000 images that he collected, rescued, or took himself – forms the heart of the museum’s holdings.
