I found the death certificate:

Mother: Karen Clausen
Informant: Andrew Hansen, Battle Ground, Washington
Body removed to Vancouver Funeral Chapel
Cause of Death:(Autopsy was performed)
Coronary Arteriosclerosis,severe (almost complete arterio sclerotic occlusion of descending branch of left coronary artery)
DR. Earl Smith was the Coroner, Deputy G.W. Snook
Death certificate signed by
Dr. Robert D. Johnson of the U of O Medical School

I am not sure how this fits into your family story. It is possible he was in Orchards (perhaps looking into some cattle for his business) and was found after he had a heart attack. He then could have been taken to Portland for Autopsy. The address of the institution, it says County, so I am not sure if that means a county hospital, or the county coroner's office.

I will glad to email the certificate to you if you write to me at widdis77777(at)
