So sorry to hear of your loss, I know it's been a long hard road for such a nice family. Prayers for all of you!

Sorry for your loss, Randy was a great guy. Trained me when I worked at Cains chips. Always saw him when I worked at Hostess Cake, and currently at Little Debbie out of Jackson.

Posted by David Shaughnessy - Jackson, MI   July 24, 2016

Our prayers are with the Wright family, may God comfort and guide all of you through this heartbreaking time. I have known Randy and done business with him since the 1970's when he delivered Cains Potato Chips. Randy always had a warm smile and a hearty greeting every time you saw him, which was 3-4 times a week. He was an Honest Business man who always treated folks kind and fair, always going above and beyond what was expected. He will be sadly missed not only by his family, but all of us he touched through his business encounters. Rest in Peace Randy.
The Borchardt Family.

Heartfelt condolences to you guys! He was surely a great man. I will never forget the religious conversations we had and how I never had to be afraid of him judging me. You will be missed Randy!

To my dear cousins,
I am sending you my deepest condolences... although circumstances led us all to lead lives that moved us away from one another; you are a part of my family. I am grateful that Randy is no longer suffering and my hope is that you may find solace in this fact. I do have some fond childhood memories that I shall carry with me... I will pray for all of you and continue to ask that you feel comfort from the greatest healer of them all; Jesus Christ. God Bless you one and all.

Randy will be loved and missed a lot! He was a great inspiration to all who knew him, and he seemed to bring a very positive attitude to any room that he entered! He had a contagious smile and a great sense of humor. I am thankful for the opportunity to have known him, and to have ha him for my son's Father-in-Law! You put up a very courageous "battle", and you showed us the "true meaning", of never "giving-up"! Enjoy your new pain-free body, and we will see you again someday! Thanks for the memories!

Posted by Rhonda Retan - Vassae, MI - Friend   July 21, 2016

Randy was a man I met while working at Bixby. I got to know him better over the years. He shared his triumphs and setbacks with me, always with a smile and positive attitude. I am so proud of the fight he had and sorry that he lost his battle. Prayers to his family and pray knowing he is wrapped in Gods arms.
