The Good Rain: Across Time & Terrain in the Pacific Northwest
On Christmas Eve 1985, David Lewis Rice murdered the entire Goldmark family, believing the father was a major Jewish Communist official plotting to surrender America to a World Communist government.
On 1942, John and Sally Goldmark, the former a Harvard-educated lawyer and a former US Navy officer from the New York State and the latter a New Deal worker from Brooklyn, married in DC. After WW2, they moved to Oregon with their son Charles and bought a ranch 250 miles northeast of Seattle in the Okanogan County, Washington, out of a desire to live from agriculture and nature.
By the 1960s, their ranch was 500-acre and they cultivated wheat and raised cattle there. John Goldmark became a leading Democratic local leader, being elected state representative in the Washington House of Representatives in Olympia from 1956 and then being reelected in a Republican-leaning district.
