Randy was a gentle and kind man. He always had a smile and he loved his family. Even when he felt so bad he’d go where he needed to be. God gained another angel and thus he has to be so happy. God bless you all and heal your hearts in this sad time. Love to all!

I’ll never stop appreciating Uncle Randy for showing me how to work on my cars over the years. Taking time to help me and my friends out, even if it meant he’d be turning a wrench late into the night.

Also me being the first on this side of the family to have children, at every family gathering he had no reservations about putting my kids on his lap and entertaining them. That love multiplied dozen times over when his grandchildren were born, the joy and love in his eyes when any of them walked into the room.

With deep sympathy,
Debby Sodders

Biography

Randall J Weyrick was a man for whom actions would speak louder than words. His life motto might well have been “if it isn’t logical, it’s not important.” The qualities of being fair, just and the ability to recognize what was right were clearly driving forces in Randall’s life. He was also the kind of person who could respect a “do not disturb” sign, whether it was real or implied. He was analytical and observant, with an ability to be simultaneously spontaneous and keenly perceptive. Randy was modest in his actions and extremely literal in his thoughts and in the manner in which he communicated with others. When Randy said something, he meant it. All those who knew him appreciated this trademark quality.

      Randy was born on November 23, 1959 at Union City Hospital in Union City, Indiana. His parents were Floyd and Virginia Weyrick. Randy was raised in Greenville, Ohio. Even as a small child, Randy wanted to understand what was right and what was wrong in any given situation. As Randy grew older, he realized the importance of being treated fairly, and in return, he treated everyone around him the same way. This belief in fair play served Randy well throughout his life and despite his natural shyness; he enjoyed a solid group of friends.

      Randy would look at the most reasonable and practical ways to settle any disputes. Randy was raised with two siblings. He had one older sister, Deb, and one younger brother, Rex. Randy and his siblings had the typical rivalries while growing up, but they shared many life experiences.

      During his childhood, family and friends viewed Randy as a quiet and reserved person with what most would consider a calm and tranquil demeanor. In fact, he was a fairly curious child who had the ability to entertain himself and didn’t require much in the way of outside stimulation. A great deal of Randy’s free time was spent learning how and why the things around him worked. He was an active child who loved being outdoors and absorbing all the sensory input that nature could provide. He took part in football. He was a 4-H member. In his spare time he liked to ride motorbikes.

      The fact that he was curious was an asset to Randy while he was in school. He relished the task of scrutinizing problems, investigating all of the options and then solving them. Randy enjoyed tackling the project that was right in front of him and working it straight through to its conclusion. Sometimes, he would become so involved in the process of problem solving that he would lose awareness of his surroundings. Experience was Randy’s best teacher. He graduated from Greenville High School in 1978. He enjoyed some courses more than others, having favorite classes and teachers.

      Those who didn’t know Randy well might have thought him to be objective and somewhat emotionally detached, but family and friends who were close to him knew that he was capable of unexpected flashes of humor. Randy’s good friends tended to be “thinkers” like himself. Even though the circle of friends was somewhat small, it was a strong and loyal group, and Randy liked nothing better than to spend his free time with them. Randy was well known for always being up front and open, never hiding his true feelings, qualities that drew deep loyalty from his friends because they understood and appreciated him for the person he was. Another quality that people admired in Randy was his ability to link cause and effect and apply the appropriate connection in his assessment of any new situation. While growing up, some of his best friends were Ed Monnier, Steve Shoop, and Mike Weyrick. Later in life, he became friends with Kent Foureman and Matt Rapsawich.

      This same loyalty and up front honesty Randy shared with his friends carried over to other aspects of his life, including his relationships with his family. On February 3, 1979, Randy exchanged wedding vows with Deborah Jean Printz at the Potsdam Church of the Brethren of Potsdam, Ohio. The marriage became a solid relationship, due in part to Randy’s skill at bringing fresh energy and clarity to meeting Debbie's needs. He was a great listener who enjoyed the couple’s “together” time, especially when it came to celebrating special occasions.

      As the family grew, Randy was easily able to adapt to the changes and challenges of parenthood. Randy was blessed with two children, daughters, Jessica and Jennifer. They were also blessed with five grandchildren, Alex, Alivia, Andrew, Christopher, and Elliana. Randy was never impulsive in dealing with family problems. Instead, he would carefully think things through before implementing the solution in a logical and objective manner. Randy was a strong, clear communicator who excelled at eliminating confusion by making matters crystal clear to all those involved. At the same time, Randy’s inventive nature could turn some of the boring old household chores into a fun activity for the family.

      In his work life, Randy was the kind of person who had no difficulty in taking on a project and seeing it through to its completion. He excelled at dealing with those pesky details that can derail some people, and once he understood exactly why he was working on a project, he could plow full steam ahead. For Randy, being able to grasp the logical components of any task was significant to him in appreciating its importance. Even if he worked alone on an assignment, Randy was able to incorporate and welcome new insights from co-workers, and he would readily use them if they improved the process. His primary occupation was a farmer and semi-truck driver. He was employed for 6 years by Greenville City Schools and a self employed mechanic. Randy always made the effort to be a team player, doing what was necessary in order to get the job done.

      Randy’s curious and inquisitive nature influenced his choice of leisure pursuits as well. He applied his strong concentration and analytical skills as to how things worked to his choice of activities. He particularly enjoyed the “alone” time his hobbies provided. His favorite pursuits were car shows, playing bass guitar and performing in a Rock and Country band (various bands). Randall was content to enjoy his hobbies alone but was also willing to share his interests with others.

      Randy was an asset to any organization he joined. In many ways, he was a man of action who would rather tackle a job than spend time chatting about irrelevant things. He worked well on small committees and excelled at focusing on the important details without getting bogged down by the unnecessary parts of an assignment. In high school, Randall was a member of the Future Farmers of America and High School Band.

      Randy appreciated the occasions when he was able to travel and get away on a vacation. He enjoyed learning about different locales and was open to exploring new and different places. Favorite vacations included traveling around the United States, particularly Wyoming and Montana. He thoroughly enjoyed the task of gathering and analyzing travel information as he prepared for an upcoming trip.

      Randy was a lover of animals and cherished his pets. One of Randy’s favorites was Cody, 1/2 Timberwolf and 1/2 black Labrador dog. They were best friends for 14 years. His family was rounded out by his black Lab, Pepper, and Collie mix, Rambo.

      Randy passed away on July 6, 2018 at Good Samaritan Hospital, Dayton, Ohio. Randy fought complications of heart disease and diabetes. He is survived by his wife, Debbie; his parents, Floyd and Virginia; his daughters and their spouses, Jessica, Mike, Jennifer, Ryan; grandchildren, Alex, Alivia, Andrew, Christopher, & Elliana; and siblings, Deb Kaufman and Rex. Services were held at Zechar Bailey Funeral Home. Randy was laid to rest in Greenville Union Cemetery, Greenville, Ohio.

      Randy strongly believed that talk is cheap. He was the type of person who would show others his feelings through his actions. He was practical and realistic but was able to be flexible when the need arose. He had a curiosity about the things around him and tried to experience life directly rather than sit back and talk about it. The experiences he treasured most were those he shared with his loved ones. Randall J Weyrick will be greatly missed.
