Community remembers Salmon Days Festival organizer
July 24, 2012
Longtime Salmon Days Festival volunteer Robert Wayne Uht died July 15.
Uht, 76, resided in Issaquah for more than 30 years, and served as Salmon Days cochairman and Issaquah Chamber of Commerce board member.
The festival organizer spent hours building floats for the Grande Parade alongside the other cochairman, Dave Bahm. Uht also served the community as a longtime Kiwanis Club of Issaquah member.
Uht and wife Johanna relocated from Issaquah to Sequim 18 years ago. In Sequim, Robert Uht continued the tradition of participation in local celebrations. He served as a ditchwalker — a person walking alongside a parade float — in the Sequim Irrigation Festival.
