A Facebook post confirms Lincoln City City Councilor Kip Ward has passed away.
Kip Ward was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia, a rare form of cancer with a low survival rate. His passing is a great loss to the citizens of Lincoln City, many of whom have expressed their love and condolences on social media. The Ward family is asking for privacy in this difficult time and in lieu of flowers or cards they ask you make a donation to Kip’s favorite charity, the Beach Bark Fund. Beach Bark provides immediate support to fund veterinary care for stray animals and for pets whose owners cannot afford critical treatment.
