Richard “Rich” Wilkinson Jr., born April 21, 1955, in Willits, California, died July 11, 2017, in Everett, Washington, with daughter Tiffany Wilkinson and the love of his life Sunan Wynhoff by his side.

Richard had many hobbies besides his job at Cascade Pipe in Twisp, were he was the Stihl technician for 17 years. Richard was truly a tinkerer. There wasn’t a project too large. He 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 — Tonya, Albert, Tyler, Stephanie, Sammy, Liam and Lucas. And had yet to get to know Dennison, Zandra and Talus. May he watch and love them all from heaven.

Richard is preceded in death by his father Richard Melville Wilkinson Sr. He is survived by his mother Lora, life partner Sunan Wynhoff, sons Shon (Shannon) Wilkinson, Aaron (Cicily) Wynoff, daughters Dacia (Jason) Woods, Tiffany (companion Stanley Musgrove) Wilkinson. Richard had two stepchildren, Bobbi Martin and sister Buffy Woodruff, that were a part of his life for many years. Richard is also survived by five siblings — Chuck, Susan, Stacey, Melora, Robert and many nieces and nephews. A celebration of life will be help Aug. 5, 2017, at his favorite place, 325 Woodland Road, Goldendale, Washington, at 3 p.m. Please come join the celebration.
