October 9, 1968 – December 3, 2021
Randy, 53, was born on October 9, 1968, in Vancouver, WA, and passed away December 3, 2021, in Tulalip, WA. He was the only child of Clara and Stanley Abbott, of Vancouver, WA. Randy married Anita Pacheco, October 15, 1999, in Everett, WA. They have been married for 22 years. Randy was a father-figure to Anita’s 3 sons, Joseph Lee Henry, Vincent Gene Henry, and Richard Lee Henry II, and a grandfather-figure to Joseph Hatch, Brandon Hatch, Jerry Jones, Dustin Henry, Taylor Henry, Anthony Henry, and Jasmin Henry, as well as numerous great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews, and great-great nieces and nephews. Randy worked in an iron foundry in Portland, OR, and his work contributed to parts for airplanes and trains. He also worked in construction during the building of the Tulalip Resort Casino in 2002. Randy was a very laid-back, easy-going guy, who loved tinkering with things. He shared his tinkering skills with his grandchildren by putting bikes together, fixing and painting them. He loved to problem solve/invent/create/innovate new ways to use everyday items, in attempts to make life simpler in some way. He loved to go on outings with his wife & sons, doing a variety of things, such as singing karaoke and playing pool together; visiting nearby casinos; searching for vintage treasures at local thrift stores and garage sales; taking road trips; camping and fishing with the family; and caring for their family pets throughout their years together. He loved playing guitar, listening and singing to classic rock-n-roll and country music. He will be greatly missed.
