Reginald Leroy Dompier (July 23, 1969 – August 1, 2023)
Reginald “Reggie” Leroy Dompier, 54, of Lake Stevens, Washington, sadly passed away from pancreatic cancer on Tuesday, August 1st, 2023. He spent his final days surrounded by friends, family, and loved ones. Those close to him will forever miss his biting sense of humor and infectious smile.
Reggie was a loving father, husband, brother, uncle, and proud member of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde who encouraged those around him to pursue their passions and stand up for what they believe in. He generously devoted his time and energy to championing the people he cared about. His appreciation of art, punk music, horror films, and competitive badminton will continue to resonate with anyone who had the pleasure of meeting him. He emanated enthusiasm in everything he did and effortlessly shared that excitement.
This exuberant spirit spent his youth hunting for mischievous music and romping around the quiet town of Wolf Creek, Oregon, where he met the love of his life, Julie Plummer. The high school sweethearts eventually married and had three children, Miles, Mercedes, and Dante. Reggie and Julie worked incredibly hard to relocate to Washington state to ensure their family had a better life. Here he provided the Dompier family home in Tulalip, Washington. His family will always cherish the memories of that quaint, comfortable homestead.
Reggie’s memory and legacy are survived by his wife, Julie Dompier (Plummer); his daughter Mercedes; his sons Miles and Dante; his grandson Elijha; his granddaughter Scarlet; his mother Vonnie Edmonson (Cureton); his sisters Jenny, Stacy, and Renee, and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his father Allen Mark Dompier who passed on May 15th, 2003. His artistic ardor will also live on through an extensive collection of intricate oil paintings, beautiful tribal drums, and hand-crafted woodwork. Reggie’s love, impact, and inspiration will continue to bring warming light when the world feels dark and cold.
