Rodney Alan Plybon, age 57, passed away unexpectedly in his home Jan. 28, 2022. His family and friends are deeply saddened by his death. Alan, or known by as Al, was born March 12, 1964 in Huntington, W.V. He grew up in Alabama and graduated from Jackson High School in 1982. He moved to the Pacific Northwest to perfect his trade as an electrician. His work ethic was unparalleled as he spent the last 14 years at Westrock in Tacoma, Wash. as an electrical planner .
Al loved watching his favorite football teams: The Seattle Seahawks and Alabama Crimson Tide, “Roll Tide Roll!” He had a passion for country music, especially Kenny Chesney and would always be front row at his tour every summer. He enjoyed traveling to Hawaii and had no shoes, no shirts, no problems while relaxing on the beach. He spoiled his two cats, Archie and Oliver, like they were his own children and they will go live with close friends nearby.
His passion and integrity to those he loved was unwavering. Al had a gift of always going above and beyond to love, support and help others. He could be found on the sidelines, in the stands or wherever his children needed him to be in their times of need. They will miss the sound of your voice, the wisdom in your advice, the stories of your life, your hugs and just being in your presence. He asked for so little but gave so very much. He was truly one of a kind.
He is survived by his daughter, Kaylie; sons, Benjamin and Jefferson; parents Rodney Plybon and Janice Lyles; siblings, Sherri, Janice and Kay; uncles, aunts, nieces, nephews, cousins and numerous friends who were his extended family.
He will be cremated and a memorial service is expected in March. Date, location and time will be announced. Those wishing to donate to a memorial fund to be used to assist with unexpected expenses, or show your support for the family, please visit gofund.me/c70ea4f4.
