AURORA, Ohio —
He was a 36-year resident of Aurora and a 33-year active member of Faith Fellowship Church, Macedonia, Ohio, where he served on the board of directors. His love of music and singing was evident as he sang in the church choir, was active in the church’s theatrical productions and was proud member of the Can Stand, Can Pray Singers. He also performed with “Gospel Meets the Symphony” productions in Akron.
Randy loved spending time with his family and also enjoyed trips to his favorite places, the Allegheny Mountains of “God’s Country”, Potter County, Pa., to Myrtle Beach, S.C., and Palo Alto, Calif.
Randy was committed to his faith and to his family. He was mightily loved and valued by those who had the honor of knowing him. A leader in his family, his church and his business, his loss is immeasurable.
