Randy Flannigan Passed away peacefully at home with his family by his side on Feb. 3, 2018. He was born in Tacoma, WA, April 19, 1941, and raised in Browns Point. As a young man he enjoyed playing the guitar, camping and entertaining everyone with his quick wit and sense of humor, and this stayed with him till the very end of his life. He enjoyed a successful career as a commercial realtor at Flannigan-Ewing Real Estate. Randy was passionate and had a love for fishing, boating, reading, golfing, and telling jokes. He liked to think of himself as a funny guy and I'm sure all would agree that this was true of him. He served on the board for" Relay For Life" from its inception, with a generous heart and spirit. He coined the phrase "the relay has a heartbeat of its own". This line has remained with the American Cancer Society to this day. Serving on the board also brought a new beginning to his life, as he met and married Rose. Randy is survived by many who loved and admired him: his wife Rose and his step-son Jesse Martin, (Kanoelani) his first wife Joanne Selden, children Denny (Becky), Rich, Michael (Allison), grandchildren D.W., Drew, Conor, Owen, Christian, Kaeje, great grandchildren Leander, James and Jackson, brother Dennis (Jayasri) and many nieces, nephews and cousins. Randy is preceded in death by his parents James and Anne, his siblings James, Dick and Theresa. Celebration of Randy's life will be held at Kilworth Chapel at the University of Puget Sound (3410 N. 18th St., Tacoma, WA 98416) on Sunday, Feb. 18, 2018 at 5:00 PM. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Franciscan Hospice or Habitat for Humanity.
