Local Grocer Keeps On Motor In'!

Happy 95th birthday wishes for Donald Malmberg!

Donald Malmberg was born in Sumas, WA on June 23, 1925, and moved in 1930 to what would later become the City of SeaTac. He went to school at Angle Lake Elementary and Highline High School and graduated in 1949 from the University of Washington. He served in the South Pacific in the Navy during WWII.

Don and his wife Irene operated the Malmberg family’s Bow Lake Grocery Store and Motor Inn on Pacific Highway and 188th St for many years until their retirement. Many locals enjoyed time spent chatting with Don at “the corner store”. His dry sense of humor and outgoing personality made him many friends in the community over the years. Don also served on the city council for the newly formed City of SeaTac for a few years.

Don resides in the Angle Lake neighborhood, but due to COVID-19 is still “snowbirding” in Arizona. He would love any birthday wishes that are sent his way. His Arizona address is 17814 W. Arizona Drive, Surprise, AZ 85374.

Giving hope and good thoughts that Donald is able to return to the cool waters of Angle Lake sometime soon.
