Jim moved to western Washington in early 1990 and immediately began to explore its special sites, hike its wooded trails, and then kayak its bays and waterways. When L.A. and Floy first visited the Pacific Northwest Jim took them to La Conner, the Skagit Flats, and the Snoqualmie Falls Resort (pictured here) for its famous Sunday brunch.

Later Jim attended Pierce College and graduated from the Veterinary Technology program. He had an exuberant nature and sharp sense of humor and he became popular with his classmates and the doctors he supported. His area of expertise was veterinary anesthesia and he became heavily relied on by surgeons, radiologists, and veterinary students working their way through clinical rotations at the WSU College of Veterinary Medicine. In private practice, his favorite position was as the anesthesia technician for a radiologist at a veterinary specialty center in Seattle. Jim had a reassuring way with animals and could calm many a frightened cat or dog.
In a previous career, Jim was a highly skilled computer imaging specialist for a pre-press facility.

Jim’s appreciation for plants and botany was well known. He photographed plants, became active with the Northwest Native Plant Society of Seattle, and volunteered for a milfoil eradication program by identifying areas of invasion via kayak.

Jim was a proud father and grandfather; he always looked forward to holidays and summer vacations with Katy both in Washington and Texas. He loved his family and his hometown area and enjoyed visits with his parents, brother, and extended family; and he never missed a chance to see CharlieBill and Chrysanne and hike around the Randal farm.
First and foremost, Jim was a good and kind person. He will always have place in my heart.

Charlie went to visit Jim in Seattle in 1994 which included this kayaking trip. Jim loved camping, kayaking and canoeing and we enjoyed his visits.

We are so sorry for your loss Katy. Jim’s passing was a surprise. It has been a sad week. He and CharlieBill had been friends since the 5th grade when the Allison’s moved to Seymour from Houston and had kept in touch all these years. Some great memories. Thoughts and prayers are with you and all your family.

Love,

Chrysanne and Charlie Randal
