Randy Myers

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2020

Randy Myers, 76, a devoted Skagit County resident passed away surrounded by family on Saturday, September 5, 2020.

Randy was born in Montpelier Idaho on July 1, 1944 to US Navy pilot Earl Myers and Norma Kimball.

After Earls death in WWII Norma enlisted the help and guidance of her parents, Grandma and Grandpa Kimball. Together they raised Randy in Bear Lake Utah. Randy’s childhood was spent learning all about farm life, from feeding livestock to rounding up the sheep on horseback before winter.

After Norma remarried the family grew and Randy was promoted to big brother. He grew with brothers, Edward Jr., Ridge and sister, Cindy.

Randy relocated to Sedro-Woolley, Washington in 1957 when he was 13 years old. He promptly met Susan, who would one day be his bride. Randy excelled at many sports during his school years earning the State Championship for his wrestling at Sedro-Woolley High School. He played football for both his high school and Central Washington University where he attended college.

Randy married the love of his life, Susan Slater, in December of 1964. He completed his college education and began work at the Washington Department of Transportation. Randy then enjoyed a long career at the General Electric Corporation, followed by his eventual retirement from the lead position at Burlington’s Kroger fuel center.

Randy raised three daughters, teaching them his life motto “Anything is possible if you set your mind to it.” Eventually Randy brought his strong influence to his sons-in-law. He shared his early lessons of farm life and self-sufficiency while spending many weekends in the mountains during hunting seasons with them.

Throughout his life Randy enjoyed taking camping trips in the family motor home, nicknamed “Herbie.” He spent his time creating memorable moments with his children, his grandchildren and eventually his great-grandchildren. He took every opportunity to teach the importance of hard work and gratitude to those he loved.

Randy is survived by his devoted wife, Susan; three daughters, Jodi and husband Kevin Tofstad, of Puyallup, Amy Myers of Pacific, and Lori Myers, of Mequon, Wisconsin; brother, Edward Fila, Jr. and wife Sharon of Bountiful, Utah; his legacy lives on in his ten grandchildren, Amanda, Randee, Derek, Lauryn, Taylor, Madison, Amber, Andrew, Austin and Autumn; six great-grandchildren, Logan, Garett, Thomas, Taylor, Alexis and Rowan; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Randy was preceded in death by his father, Earl and mother, Norma; brother, Ridge; sister, Cindy.
The family would like to extend our deepest gratitude to Dr. Aaron Arnold for all of his genuine care and support throughout this journey.

Friends and family will gather to celebrate and honor Randy and the life he lived on Saturday, September 26, 2020 from 1-4pm at the family home. Share memories of Randy and sign the online guest register.

    I only knew Randy in passing through work, but he was one of the most honest and straight forward people I worked with. He always stood out as an incredibly dependable, and trustworthy guy.

  • Me, Aunt Joyce

    Dear sister and nieces, Thank you for offering us all the opportunity to share our love with you at the “party”. Your strength through the difficult day was a testament to your understanding of your Dad’s and husband’s wishes. The
    balloons all flying as one, into the light, made me smile, as I imagined his handsome smile, as remembered, too, by his coworkers.

  • Karen Welch

    What a beautiful life lived, and incredible legacy he leaves to this world. I hope Susan, Jodi, Amy and Lori can feel his strength and reassurance nearby, watching over them as a guardian angel now.

    This is not goodbye, but see ya later alligator❤ All my love Gramps. Thank you for raising me with and teaching me strong morals and worth ethic. I have succeeded in my career and life because I come from such a wonderful family. I will work so hard to instill the same characteristics into my babies. Do not be worried, we will take care of one another. And know you are always looking out for us. We will “be safe” always.

  • Amy Myers

    Dad, you were the first man I ever loved. You held me, supported me and let me grow. Your patience, complete understanding and unwavering love made me the woman I am today. You believed in me first. You gave me all I could have ever needed, because you gave me love. And by giving me love, you taught me what love is and also what it isn’t. You showed me that love is being strong and humble, while also loving one’s self enough to reach for the stars. You taught me I could do anything in life with hard work and determination. It hurts to know you are not here anymore. I can’t help but smile though, at all the memories and great times we had. The words you have said to me will never be forgotten!

    -Till we meet again dad, I love you.

    I worked with Randy at Fred Meyer. He was such a hard worker and a fun guy to be around. Always a smile and so personable. Enjoyed chatting with him in the store even after he retired from there. He was very proud of his kids and grandkids. Spoke about them often. I’ll miss that smile and twinkle in his eyes. Condolences to his family. What a wonderful man to have shared a life with.
