Brett Victor Rodin, 55, of Tacoma, Washington, passed away on September 2, 2023. Born on January 23, 1968, in Tacoma, Washington, Brett was a beloved brother, uncle, and friend.

Brett was quite a character, known for his kind and helpful nature. He was always willing to lend a helping hand, even when it wasn't needed. Brett had a natural talent for making friends wherever he went and had an extensive network of acquaintances. He had a heart of gold and was admired by his co-workers in the fishing industry, where he worked for many years in Alaska. His knowledge of the trade and his ability to make things work on fishing vessels made him a valuable asset. Brett was someone you could count on to "wing it well."

In his free time, Brett found joy in two main hobbies. He had a passion for fishing and enjoyed spending hours on the water, casting his line and reeling in the catch of the day. Recently, he also developed an interest in wood furniture restoration, showcasing his mechanical skills and creativity.

Brett leaves behind a lasting legacy in the hearts of his loved ones. He is survived by his sister, Pam Soulier, and his nephew and wife, Colby and Jeanette Rodin. He was preceded in death by his father, Vernon Rodin, his mother, Yvonne Rodin, his brother, Steven D. Rodin,  Brett will also be missed by his many cousins and friends.
