Randy was a 1974 graduate of Celina Senior High School.  He went on to work for Crown Equipment in New Bremen and retired after 23 years of service. 


He was a member of Grand Lake United Methodist Church in Montezuma, the N.R.A., Ducks Unlimited, IATSE Local #146, and worked for the Niswonger Community Concert Series.  He served as the Vice President of the Fraternal Order of Eagles #2177 and was also very proud to be the mayor or council member in Montezuma for the past 40 years.  


Randy had many interests, but his most pronounced interests were being an outdoorsman and hunting and trapping.  Randy’s kindness, easy going attitude and sense of humor were contagious and a positive influence for many people.  His real and abiding passions were his family and friends.  He will be truly missed by all.
