So many hearts have been broken as we sadly announce the peaceful passing of Randy on Tuesday, May 21, 2019 at The Carpenter Hospice at the age of 54. In the presence of his loving family he lost his battle with cancer. A battle he bravely fought.
Predeceased by his parents, John (Shan) and Margaret Whitty, grandparents John and Bridget Whitty, Peter and Alice Power; his father and mother-in-law, Kev and Ann Owens.
Sadly, leaving behind his devoted wife Pam; adored children Crystal (Jordan) and Andrew; his pride and joy grandchildren Brooklyn and Ridge.
Randy was a cherished brother to Brian, Barry (Helen) , John (Karen), Pauline (Peter) Johnson, Robert (Marilyn), Lisa (Darrin) Holwell. Sisters-in- law Wanda Owens (Bernie), Brenda (Mike) Walsh, Bernadette (Jim) Antle, and just like a sister Tina Baird (Corey).
A loving uncle to his many nieces and nephews. Leaving behind many cousins and friends. He will also be missed by his aunts and uncles, Cyril (Genie) Power, Ethel Tapper, and Rita (Ed) Brennan.
Many fond memories, along with a cold beer, were shared with his large circle of “Family of Friends”.
Randy lived life to the fullest with his wife and best friend Pam of 34 years. Randy loved his children and was such a proud poppy to his grandchildren. He was a dedicated family man.
His loyalty is also reflected in his work life where he was employed for 33 years with Allcolour Paint. An easy-going guy with a great sense of humor who enjoyed many get-togethers and shenanigans with his siblings and friends. Those days will surely be missed.
A sincere thank you to our family physician Dr. Wendy Reiser, and the entire oncology team at Joseph Brant Hospital who made Randy’s past 18 month battle a little bit easier with their kindness, compassion, and support.
Sincere appreciation to the LHIN Program and staff. Randy’s last days were spent as he called it at his “All inclusive”, The Carpenter Hospice. There are not enough words to thank all the staff members and volunteers at this wonderful home away from home.
