Memories Timeline


  1. My thoughts and love are with you, Susie, Be my, Nevin. I wish I could be with you at the services to show my love and support. This gentle man will be so very missed.

  2. I love you dad. Thank you for everything. You did so much for so many. This world will never be the same without you.

  3. Randy was a wonderful man, helping his fellow Veterans at the Veterans Community Rendezvous in Conifer then Evergreen. He made sure that there was enough help to make a difference for those living in the mountain community. Randy served his country, his community and now will serve the Lord I am sure! Please accept my condolences as I will miss the service. My heart goes out to all who knew him as he will be missed terribly.

  4. Rest well my friend and mentor of many years. I will always remember the fires we worked together and our bull sessions over coffee. Dan Hrouda & Family

  5. Our thoughts and prayers are with Randy’s family at this sorrowful time. With love and prayers, the entire family of Cowboy Dodge CJR in Cheyenne.

  6. Randy was also a dedicated volunteer firefighter, fire investigator, fire marshal. He will be missed and I believe we are all better for having the opportunity of knowing him. Thoughts and prayers for his family.

  7. Randy was an incredible man who would answer the call no matter the circumstances. Going to miss his smile. his tireless energy and especially his woodworking craftsmanship.

  8. Randy was a kind sole, a nurturing and brave man, and someone who deeply impacted my family and me. He had so much to share, gave so much of himself with no expectations of reciprocation, and stood as a beacon of what a great man truly is.
    He came to my home during a blizzard to help stop the bleeding of my wife’s finger. He taught me new joining techniques for custom woodworking. Most incredibly, he always made a point to stop in and say “Hi” to my oldest son, Jackson, every time he visited Parmalee Elementary.
    Rest well, my friend, and may your sole fly high knowing how many lives you blessed with your service and friendship.

  9. Randy was a dear man and friend
    He would pick rhubarb out of my yard, and make me delicious treats. He will be missed so deeply. Love you Randy

  10. We became acquainted with Randy after his daughter, Becky, married our nephew, Mark. He was always smiling and we saw how much Becky and Eliana loved him. He will be greatly missed. Our love and prayers to the family.

  11. It was an honor to get to know you Randy on a more personal level. What started out three years ago as a joint venture, putting in a fire cistern at the corner of Jennings Rd and Yegge Rd turned into a coffee shop friendship that talked about building a garage of your own, driving my loader to your house to load a large propane tank onto your trailer so you could take it up to your new garage to the last conversation we had over the phone ( which was 07/05/19) about getting the logs in your driveway loaded on a trailer so you could bring them over so I could cut them up into lumber using Mr Vanleonan ‘s large wood miser band saw style saw mill. We had talks about road designs and reminisced about the first time I actually met you, it was 2003 when the fire department burned my childhood home down as a training exercise. I will treasure the conversations we had and grieve for the ones we didn’t get to have. You are in paradise now my friend, no stress, no dead lines, no middle of the night calls for help enjoy eternity my friend.

  12. Sue, I was saddened to hear of Randy’s passing and I wanted you to know I have very nice memories of my relationship with him at the City of Lakewood. Good memories will help you get thru this difficult time.

  13. Randy and I had worked together since 1996. He was a common sense professional who was always working for his community in some way. We worked together on many great projects over the years both professional and personal. He was both a friend and mentor.

    He left huge footprints in our community and it will be impossible to fill his shoes!

    Rest in peace my Friend…

  14. After meeting Sue while training for a three day walk seventeen years ago, I soon met Randy as he was the “blister master” and other medical needs for that walk and many other fund raising walks. He taught my CPR certification courses and made it so easy to pass. I have never known a finer man. He always had a smile on his face and a kind word to say to say. Heaven has been blessed with a wonderful angel.

  15. Randy and I worked together for a long time, he was a fire Marshall and I was a contractor. He and I sometimes disagreed with code but always somehow figured it out. God Bless you Randy.


  16. Rudloff Family
    I worked for 8 years with Randy through Colorado CPR. I only got to meet Sue once. He always taught me something when he came to the training center. My prayers for the Rudloff family – that God will give you strength and comfort.

  17. I was privileged to work with Randy for many years at City of Lakewood. We both moved our families to the foothills and he was very generous with his time giving us guidance as we built our home. I enjoyed running into him in our community. He always had a smile and time to talk. He was proud of his kids and family and would catch me up on what was going on with them. I will miss him and consider it a privilege to have known him.

  18. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family. Working with Randy at the City of Lakewood was a privilege, he will be greatly missed.

  19. Becky, Sue, Nevin-
    My thoughts and prayers are with you. Randy was an amazing dad to you. Remember when we were about 9, eating ice cream in Breckenridge, when your scoop of chocolate fell off your cone and squarely into his lap? Although we were howling, he handled it with poise and grace- like everything else in his life. Sending my love.

  20. To Sue, Nevin, & Becky,
    Know that I’m thinking about you now and feeling sorrow for your loss. I have many sweet memories of Randy and all the fun he arranged for us as kids (Becky’s school buddies), from teaching us to ride snow mobiles at the FairPlay cabin to giving us a safe haven to reminisce the night of high school graduation. He was an amazing dad.

  21. Dear Sue and Family- My thoughts are with you and I’m so very sorry to hear of Randy’s passing. I just saw him a few ago while he was presenting at a Jeffco Hearing. I will remember him for the indelible smile he wore. Yes, he worn that smile then too and gave a nod as to say hello. In all the years working with him on building issues in the PD, he was always kind and responsive in getting things accomplished. He was one hard working man and seemed to never let much get to him in this crazy race of life. May you and your family find strength and comfort in the loving memories of Randy. In His Abounding Love-Gail

  22. Randy was a warm and caring person. He always made time to talk to our disabled son. He will be missed by our family and our community.

  23. Dear Sue, Nevin and Becky,

    I’m so sorry for your loss. Randy was always great to us girls and I know we was an awesome husband and father. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.

  24. My sweet and loving hubby. You would be amazed at all the wonderful, loving comments I’ve heard and read on cards and this guestbook. They warm my heart so very much. I am so proud of you and it was an absolute honor to be your wife for almost 45 years. You have no idea how very much I miss you. I keep waiting for you to open the door and say “hi honey”, but it’s not happening. I pretend you’re at work or on a call, yet I still long for your presence, your hugs and kisses and to hear “I love you” just one more time. I will do my best to live my life in such a way to continue to honor you and make you proud. I will always worship and love you forever and ever. I miss you more than you’ll ever realize. Please watch over me and protect me. I love you!!!!

  25. Sue, I wrote a long message to u re: Randy. I looked
    Today to see if I sent it and couldn’t find it. This is something I have done a lot in the past. I write something and forget to push “send”’.

    Did I do this to your message?
