It is with heavy hearts that we share the news of the passing of our friend and former colleague, Randy Velasquez.

Randy joined the Barkery pack in 2008 and worked with us for over 11 years. He passed away on August 7, 2020 and will be greatly missed by many.

Here are some memories of Randy our team wanted to share:

“Randy came into our store over 10 years ago as a customer who was a concerned pet parent, we hit it off, then he walked in as a Team member, then he walked as a friend and colleague. He will always be part of the Barkery legacy.” – Delena and Larry Stout, Barkery Co-Owners

“We once received a customer review referring to Randy as “a rude little man with an equally small heart” which he proudly printed and displayed on the wall by his desk for a number of years. He was honored to receive this award at his retirement party. Randy dedicated his life to helping pets, not only at the Barkery, but throughout the community with his own non-profit animal rescue.” – Courtney, Marketing Manager  

“Randy was a great husband, loving dog/cat dad, and extremely kind-hearted. He was very special to me and so many other people. I am grateful that I got to know him and work so closely with him for many years. I love Randy and miss him very much.” – Alex, Manager

“Randy was one of the most amazing people that I have met in my life. I enjoyed every moment with him and really appreciated him. I miss you, Randy – thank you for all you did for me.” – Diane, Intern
