WECU staffer wife killed in marina fire
BELLINGHAM, Wash. (4/17/12)--A business loan officer at Bellingham, Wash.-based Whatcom Educational CU (WECU)  and his wife were killed when a fire swept through a Bellingham marina on March 30.

The deaths of WECU Business Loan Officer Jim Langei, 43, and Sterling Taylor, 33, were confirmed April 5 by authorities, said the Northwest Credit Union Association (Anthem April 12).

Police had said they received a 911 call indicating the couple was trapped. Langei and Taylor lived aboard their 42-foot boat. The early morning fire destroyed about 10 boats and a boat house at Squalicum Harbor (The Bellingham Herald April 6).

Langei joined the credit union staff in 2003 as a loan officer.  Taylor was also a former WECU employee.

Langei is survived by his parents, Wayne and Kathy Langei, brothers Robert and Tom Langei, and sons Spencer and Ian Langei, all of Bellingham. A joint celebration of life was held Saturday for the couple.
