Ulbrickson, who graduated with a bachelor’s degree in physical education, devoted many years of service to the UW. He served first as dean of men and later as vice president of Student Affairs. Not one to retire to a life on the golf course, Ulbrickson served as executive director of the South Snohomish County Chamber of Commerce after he left the UW.
He was a spirited man with a wide smile and the ability to make people feel welcome. He was involved with Community Services for the Blind, Kiwanis and Seattle Junior Crew, and worked hard to promote the Junior Crew Rowing program at Green Lake. He is survived by his wife, Monica; daughter, Rinda; son Alvin III; and three grandchildren.—Julie Garner
