Randall Norman Kemp

May 20, 1953 — December 6, 2023

La Center

Randy N. Kemp passed away on Wednesday, Dec. 6, at the age of 70, at his La Center, WA, home. He is survived by his loving wife of 51 years, Teresa; his son, Joshua (Shawnee); and his daughters, Katherine (Katie) (Walter) Abrego and Jennifer (Matthew) Lewman. He is also survived by his grandchildren, Mercedes (Mercy) Abrego, Brianna Johnson (Dexter), Montana Santamaria (Joel), Courtney Kemp, Joshua Abrego, Kaiya Kemp, Leanna Reece and Kathryn Reece.
Randy was born May 20, 1953, in Portland, OR, to Inez and Norman Kemp. He graduated from Columbia River High School in 1971. He and Teresa were foster care parents for 13 years for the state of Washington. He retired from D&D Door in 2014 after working there for 20 years; he was also a member of the Carpenters Union. He was handy working with wood, always making special things for his grandchildren. Randy was also a jack of all trades. Randy and Teresa retired to Ocean Park, WA, and then later moved back to Castle Rock, WA, when his health started to decline. He enjoyed his retirement years, traveling, fishing, hunting, camping, reading and volunteering at Compassion 360 where he enjoyed greeting the guests who came for services. He was also a long-standing member of Ridgefield Church of the Nazarene, where he enjoyed singing in the Singing Christmas Tree, and the Singing Cross. He also taught Sunday school and Caravans for the children of the church.
We celebrated with a living memorial service on Dec. 2, 2023, as Randy wanted to be able to say goodbye to his family and friends. There will not be another service.
Donations may be made in Randy’s name at Compassion 360, c/o Ridgefield Church of the Nazarene, 747 Pioneer, PO Box Box 118, Ridgefield, WA 98642.
”I hold you in my heart, until I hold you in Heaven.”
