Randall M. Allred
Randall M. Allred, 62, a longtime Royal City resident passed away Friday, Dec. 14, 2012 at his home surrounded by his loving wife and children.
He was born on Oct. 1, 1950 in Ithaca, New York to Wells and Loriol (Cox) Allred, the third of seven children. He spent his younger years living in Utah, Peru, and Philippines prior to moving to the Columbia Basin at the age of 12. His passion for work started as a youngster, helping on his grandparent’s dairy. He loved playing sports, attended Big Bend Community College, worked on a fishing boat in Alaska, and served in the Air Force.
He married his high school sweetheart, Nancy Kay Fallis on April 3, 1970 in Royal Camp. Randy and Nancy started their farm, orchard and feedlot on the West end of the Royal Slope. He served as a Board Member for the Quincy Columbia Basin Irrigation District for 29 years and as a Grant County PUD Commissioner since 2003.
Randy taught his family the value of hard work, determination and to be passionate in what you believe in. He was a strong man who loved his family and was our great “protector.” Randy always made time to share a bowl of ice cream with his greatest legacy, his grandchildren.
He is survived by his wife, Nancy Kay Allred, of Royal City; three children Lesa (Michael) Buster, Andy (Danyel) Allred, and Bryan (Katie) Allred, all of Royal City; and 10 grandchildren, Jadyn, Savanna, Wyatt, Jace, Braydon, Randi Kay, Caden, Jillian, Maddie and Sam.

He has been reunited in heaven with his parents, Wells and Loriol Allred.
