February 11, 1963 – January 31, 2022
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Randal (Randy) John Bereti of Abbotsford, B. C. Though his passing was sudden, he went peacefully and was surrounded by his loving family.
Born in Murrayville, Langley, Randy’s early years were spent on family farms in Langley then Falkland. After his father’s passing, his mother Aline moved the family to Vernon then later, to Barriere, B.C. His career as a widely respected HVAC/Refrigeration Lab technician took him to Calgary, Kelowna and finally, Abbotsford.
Randy had many loves, foremost being his family and friends. He also loved camping, travelling, working in his woodshop building incredible cigar box guitars (among other beautiful pieces of woodwork), ballroom dancing, riding his Harley, being “Papa”, gardening, and cooking.
Randy always had a passion for learning, he never tired when discovering something he found genuinely interesting. He inspired us all with his creativity and big heart. Randy will be deeply missed.
Predeceased by father, John Bereti, Randy is survived by his wife, Tammie, of 31 years, children Ryan (Delaney) and Celine, grandchildren Louie and Mickey, as well by mother Aline Johnston stepfather Vern (Bev) Johnston, sisters Susan (Brent) Smith and Melanie (Clint) Mazurkewich, brother Glen (Abbey) Bereti, and all his loving relatives and lifelong friends.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, a donation may be made to Fraser Valley Blues Society or charity of your choice.
