Obituary for Randy Woolf
WOOLF, Randall Brent Randall "Randy" Brent Woolf, Papa, Dad, prankster, tinker, best friend, husband, passed away on December 13th after a long fight with Corticobasal Degeneration. Let the record show he threw some good punches during those six years when he was told he'd have only six weeks to live. Randy was born of a high-heeled woman, Eva Burton Woolf, and a tall drink of water, Dr. Norman Tanner Woolf, on October 25th, 1952 in Oakland, CA. He was the third of six wild boys. His mother would say that Randy didn't have the finesse or natural athleticism some of his brothers had but he more than made up for that with hard work and hustle on the court and field. He loved spending time in nature and on such occasions was often heard saying, "life don't get much better than this." He married his high school sweetheart, Debbie, and together they raised four wild children of their own. Randy was a man of integrity and believed that you could catch more flies with honey, making him an obvious salesman choice for customers in the lumber industry for nearly 35 years. If you were a loyal customer or colleague, your friendship status with Randy included the occasional prank just to remind you that he cared. He loved to laugh and, more importantly, loved to make others laugh. Randy's optimistic outlook made any project, obstacle, or life trial manageable. His psychology background made him a comforting friend and he gave great "1990s sitcom dad" advice. With much love, devotion, and kindness, he built friendships out of selfless service. With inhuman Tetris stacking skills, he helped pack many moving trucks of family, friends, and neighbors. He sang to his sons and daughter, created animal stories about his grandchildren, and improvised elaborate games to entertain children. 44 years of marriage to his wife is a shining example of trust, compromise, mutual support, and frequent public displays of affection. He is preceded by his mother, Eva, father, Norman, sister, Connie, and brother, Dave. We know we will only be parted for a season. Families are eternal. As he spends time catching up with special souls on the other side, he leaves a number of loved ones to wait for the day we can embrace him again. These include his beloved wife, Debra Kay Tyler Woolf, siblings Douglas (and Brenda), Blair (and Wendy), Mark (and Cindy), Scott (and Anita), and Dave's wife, Debbie, children Benjamin (and Linda), Lexie (and Aaron), Isaac (and Audriana), and Nicholas (and Katie), and grandchildren, Madelynn, Sean, Joshua, Wesley, Mackenzie, Allison, Olivia, Arielle, Nolan, Evelyn, Brock, Salena, Norman, Macy, Grayson, and Bodi. We love you forever, Papa. Save some fries for us! His family will hold a celebration of life for those who would like to share in this experience. The event will be held on Saturday, December 22nd, 2018 at 11 am at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (4014 S. Bowdish Rd, Spokane Valley, WA 99206).
