He will be missed by his many friends at Howard Miller Clock Company where he was employed for nearly 43 years. In his spare time, he enjoyed researching his genealogy, studying history, hunting (especially with his son), and fishing. Randy was a devoted member of Forest Grove Reformed Church where he was currently serving as an Elder. Funeral services will be held on Thursday, September 16, 2021 at 11am with a gathering from 10-11am at Forest Grove Reformed Church, 1630 32nd Ave, Hudsonville, with Pastor Doug Hoeve and Pastor Dan DeVries officiating.

I’m proud to have met and known Randy for a good many years. I always enjoyed talking with him whenever I ran into him. What started out as being friends with Angie (his daughter) from 7th grade up to now and then realizing that he and my mom Mary both graduated together from Unity Christian in 1977. I’ll miss seeing him doing his grocery shopping and talking with him.

He was truly a genuine person and he will be missed so much by so many people!!! So much love to the Branderhorsts, I know how close you all are!! Lots and lots of hugs! ❤️
