Harland (Ske) Radomske | Obituary

Surrounded with love, Harland (Ske) Radomske passed away on June 8, 2021, after a long and extraordinary fight against prostate cancer. Ske was a highly regarded leader, businessman, rancher, horseman, outdoor sportsman and athlete but most importantly known to those who loved him as husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, brother, uncle, and dear friend.

Ske was born on August 12, 1939, to Fred and Ruth Radomske. He graduated from Newport High School, Newport, WA in 1957, after forging ahead in life as an independent young adult, he started and owned Venture Construction Inc. in 1964 in Auburn, WA., and the company flourished until he sold and retired in 2000. Venture was known for numerous well known heavy construction projects throughout Washington and beyond. In addition to his construction career, he was able to pursue his interest in farming, ranching and ultimately settled in on his love of riding, breeding, and raising cutting horses. Whatever Ske did, he was “all in”. He married the love of his life, Jody Radomske in 1987 and together they have pursued and developed a positive reputation of influence in the National Cutting Horse Association. Together they developed Venture Farms Ranch in Ellensburg, where they lived most of their married life.

His faith in the Lord was his foundation, and he knew he would be leaving us to walk with the Lord. Ske is survived by his wife Jody, three daughters, one son and stepson, seven grandchildren and two great grandchildren.
