Patrick Alan Janicki, 30, of Sedro-Woolley, WA, passed away on Friday, August 18, 2017 at Virginia Mason Hospital in Seattle, WA.  Patrick, made friends with everyone he met, would help anyone at any time, and had a smile that melted hearts.  Patrick’s goal in life was to create memories by bringing energy and fun to every event.

He graduated from Sedro-Woolley High School in 2006 and from Gonzaga University in 2010 where he earned his Bachelor in Business Administration.  After a brief time in Seattle, Patrick returned home to work with his father in the family logging business.  Patrick was recently installed onto the Sedro-Woolley Rotary Board and helped construct many Rotary projects.  He was especially proud of the Nathan Nakis climbing boulder at Evergreen Elementary.  Patrick served on the board for the Olympic Logging Conference.  Patrick earned his Eagle Scout rank in high school and continued to live by scouting values and with a love of the outdoors.

He is survived by his parents, Michael and Lisa Janicki; grandparents, Richard and Kathy Millison of Clovis, CA, John Patterson and Rita Ramos of Anchorage, AK; siblings and in-laws,  Jordan and Courtney Janicki of Big Lake, Stephanie and Greg Bachmeier of Sedro-Woolley, Adam Janicki of Seattle, and Peter and Kaitlyn Janicki of Sedro-Woolley; nephew Jordan P. Janicki; nieces, Natalie and Ashley Janicki, Adelaide and Laile Bachmeier, and Blakely Jo Janicki; aunts and uncles, Jim and Jeanne Gross, Kevin and Mary McGoffin, John and Katherine Janicki, Rob and Kara Janicki, Peter and Susan Janicki, Kyle and Sarah Rutherford, Patricia Blake of Seattle, and Mike and Kelley Mills of Anchorage.   Patrick is also survived by numerous cousins and “best friends” who loved him.

Patrick is preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Stanley and Ann Janicki; uncle, Stanley Joseph Janicki; cousin, Nathan Janicki.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made for a playground Patrick wanted to build with Rotary.  Sedro-Woolley Rotary Foundation, PO Box 726, Sedro-Woolley, WA 98284.

    Patrick had a smile that lit up the whole room.
    We got to know this young man from our son. Many Sunday mornings I would be setting up tills for the bar and Patrick would look in the window and knock on the door looking for his debit card from the night before and we would always have a good visit about his work and what he had been up to. Will miss him

    I asked pat about working on the logging side in 2011 and had a job shortly after calling him. I enjoyed the time spent working with him around the shop and in the woods. He will be missed.
