Gary J. Roedell

March 03, 1948 - January 17, 2016


Gary J. Roedell, age 67, passed away on January 17, 2016. He was born on March 3, 1948 to James and Erma Roedell. Gary was the kindest, most helpful person you could have ever met. He was thoughtful, caring, and never spoke a negative word about anyone. Gary had a great love of flowers, with a particular passion for orchids.

As a younger man, Gary worked along side his brother, Rick and his father as a reefnetter, fishing off of the coast of Lummi Island for Barlean’s Fishery. For a brief time, he owned and operated a fish market in Lynden. He then worked for Dexter Landscape Services in Ferndale.

Gary was preceded in death by his father, James Roedell, and grandparents James and Laura Ecklor and grandfather William Roedell. He is survived by his mother Erma Roedell, brothers Rick and Randy Roedell, sister Kathy Holtrop, and numerous nieces and nephews.

  1. Dear friend Erma, What a lovely service today for my former NV classmate Gary at Greenacres. Couldn’t you just feel his presence with us…Loved the eulogy, pictures, floral & orchid displays and seeing the chapel room full of family and friends gathering in his memory; and celebrating his life. Was so sorry when I heard of Gary’s untimely passing. May God keep you and your family in His loving care during this difficult time.

    What a treat it was when Gary came into my Lynden workplace with you and Jim about 14 or so yrs ago. Yes, here was the real Gary, not the mistaken identity of another guy I spoke of from the Sumas store. Many thanks Erma, what a gift you are! Will always treasure his wonderful memory in my heart of hearts.
    ~Sincerely, Love Ila
