John Randolph

Obituary of John Joseph Randolph

How do you quantify greatness?  For us it was John Joseph Randolph.


John was born in Louisiana on August 26th1935, to parents George Randolph and Vera Patterson, and was proudly co-raised by his maternal grandparents before joining USAF and serving his country.  He passed away peacefully surrounded by his loved ones on September 2nd

 2022, in his home in Fife, Washington after a short battle with cancer.


He was the center of our world, a lover of all animals (and we mean all animals), and a great friend to all that knew him.  He worked much of his life as a butcher which was an oxymoron to the man who saved all from animals to people.  He was a frequent staple to the Fife, Milton, and Edgewood community living here since 1979, and he was known for his friendliness to everyone, he truly loved his neighbors! 


John is survived by Daughters Sandi Lewis (Ross), Kristy Miller, Son Austin Trammel, his treasured grandchildren, Amanda Adair (Owen), Rachel Lewis, Michelle Miller, Christopher Miller, Cassi Miller, Madison Miller, Ryan Wilder, Sister Avia and girlfriend Ronee Rose, among extended family.  He was preceded in death by his Grandparents, Parents, Grandson Isaac and the true love of his life and wife Roberta Randolph.
