Richard Wilkinson


Richard “Rich” Wilkinson Jr died on July 11, 2017 in Everett Washington with his daughter, Tiffany Wilkinson, and the love of his life, Sunan Wynhoff, by his side.

Richard was born on April 21, 1955 in Willitts, California, to Richard Melville Wilkinson Sr (deceased) and Lora. He is survived by his life partner Sunan Wynhoff; children Shon (Shannon) Wilkinson, Dacia (Jason) Woods, Tiffany (Stanley Musgrove) Wilkinson, and Aaron (Cicily) Wynhoff; as well as two stepchildren, Bobbi Martin and Buffy Woodruff; and five siblings, Chuck, Susan, Stacey, Melora, and Robert; and many nieces and nephews.

Richard had many hobbies outside his job at Cascade Pipe in Twisp where he was the Stihl Technician for 17 years. Richard was a true tinkerer and there wasn't a project too large. He particularly loved his gold wing motorcycle which he built from the frame up; may he continue to tinker in the great beyond.

In recent years he spent precious time with his many grandchildren: Tonja, Albert, Tyler, Stephanie, Sammy, Liam, and Lucas. He had yet to get to know Dennison, Zandra and Talus. May he watch over and love them all from heaven.

A celebration of his life will be held August 5, 2017 at his favorite place, 325 Woodland Road, Goldendale at 3 p.m. Please come join the celebration.
