Peacefully, in the care of the Ottawa Hospital, on Wednesday, September 15, 2021 at the age of 65, after a courageous five year battle with cancer. Loving husband to Cristy. Brilliant brother to William (Virginia), Allan (Christina) and Michael (Deidree). Predeceased by his parents William and Isabel, and sister Heather. Cherished uncle to Bryan, Cedric, Cristan, Chadwick, Kelly, Scott, Wayne and Samantha. He will be missed by his extended family in Ottawa, Quebec and Saskatchewan, the neighbours, and his many friends and colleagues around the globe.
Randy was a caring, generous and intelligent man who loved to tell jokes, giving history lessons, and talking about world politics. Most of all he enjoyed hanging out with family. Anyone who had the privilege of knowing Randy knew the warmth of his eyes, his smile and his heart.
