Randy grew up in Santa Fe, TX, and went from first grade through High School in Santa Fe ISD. He excelled in academics and track, where he was voted Most Handsome by his peers while helping his track team win first at the District Mile Relay and personally winning District in the 400 meters, as well as placing 2nd in Regionals and 4th in State. He continued his education at San Jacinto College on a track scholarship, followed his passion for Christ to Dallas Christian College, and then to Lincoln Christian Seminary in Illinois where he received his Master of Divinity degree. Randy loved all things outdoors, but fishing and hunting were his true passions. The retelling of his adventures were even better than the actual adventure. He spent his life working in the oil and gas industry, where he was able to see and live all over the US and Canada. He never met a stranger and would be the first person to offer the shirt off of his back. The last year of his life was spent working and witnessing before coming home to rehabilitate. God allowed his time to reconnect with lifelong friends and family and have peace with his heavenly Father. His family is forever grateful to his dear friend, John Windham for his constant support during his final days. His weekly visits were a highlight for him. To Marilyn Ott, his baby sister, for the million calls, doctor visits, and hospital stays we are forever grateful.
Our family would like to thank everyone for their prayers and love during this time.
A celebration of life will be held Friday, June 2, 2023, at 11:00 a.m. at Arcadia Christian Church 14201 Beriton Street, Santa Fe, TX 77517.
