July 14 1951 – to – January 27 2011

Randy was born in Vancouver, B.C and passed away peacefully in the Victoria General Hospital with his wife and daughter at his side. Randy was predeceased by his father Elmer (Sy).

Randy will be sorely missed and forever remembered by his loving wife Trudy, daughter Tammy, son in-law Rob, granddaughters Alexis and Sarah, mother Dorothy, sisters Wendy and Beth, Brothers Gary, Rodger, Patrick , and a large extended family.

Randy and Trudy were married in Vancouver and moved to the peace of Salt Spring in 1972. Randy loved Island life and made a long successful career at BC Ferries. Randy’s true passion was supporting his community. Many of us remember him best as Salt Spring’s “Fly-In” Santa for over a dozen years. He was heavily involved in many community groups including; Royal Canadian Legion, Masons, Eastern Star, Lost Chords Seniors Choir, SPCA auctioneer, and SSPLASH. His final gift to the community was his work with the Masons to establish a new permanent Food Bank Building.

Please join us for a celebration of Randy’s life at the Legion, Meaden Hall, February 19th at 2:30 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, donations in his memory can be made to the Salt Spring Food Bank.
