Obituary of Randall John Fitzpatrick
Brewer and Houlton—Randall John Fitzpatrick, 58, died unexpectedly January 26, 2021. He was born in Houlton March 11, 1962, the son of William and Sylvia (Lake) Fitzpatrick.
Randy graduated from Hodgdon High School, Class of 1980. That fall, he drove to Wyoming Technical Institute, where he studied Diesel Mechanics. After graduating, he enlisted in the United States Air Force, specializing in Navigational Aids Equipment. He was honorably discharged on September 6, 1985. From January 1986 to January 1988, Randy worked as a contract employee for Bendix Field Engineering Corporation in Saudi Arabia in the Air Navigation Systems Support Program. In June of 1988, he began his career with the Federal Aviation Administration in Bangor, Maine working as an Airways System Specialist where he remained until the time of his passing.
Randy met his future wife, Lynne Tinkham, in the summer of 1988. They were married September 1992 and raised two sons, Nathan and Benjamin, who he loved very much.
Randy's faith in God was very important to him and he practiced his faith daily. Randy was very friendly and would strike up a conversation with a total stranger as if he'd known them his entire life. If he thought that he could help someone in any way, he was more than willing to do so. He enjoyed being in the woods, riding ATVs, and playing pool. He was also very enthusiastic about computers and technology.
Randy is survived by wife Lynne (Tinkham) Fitzpatrick of Brewer; sons Nathan and Benjamin Fitzpatrick; parents William and Sylvia “Sally” of Hodgdon; brothers William and wife Lynn, Gordon and wife Lori, and Ronald; sisters Ann and husband Skip Keegan, and Lisa Malone; nieces and nephews Megan, Marissa, Brandon, Joshua, Colby, Samantha, Erika, Abby, Kathryn, Bryan, Brittany, and Brooke.
