Randy William Griffin
November 9, 1987 – March 26, 2019
Randy William Griffin, age 31, of Henderson, was tragically taken from us March 26, 2019 near Tropicana and Nellis Blvd. He was born November 9, 1987, at University Medical Center in Las Vegas, Nevada to his parents, Wayne Griffin Jr. and Angela McArdle.
Randy attended school in Southern Nevada and in New Jersey. While in New Jersey he was nicknamed Kid Vegas and the name followed him back to Las Vegas where many of his friends referred to him as such. Randy often worked in retail, his outgoing demeanor allowed him to be successful in that position. He also did odd jobs in which he liked best because it gave him the opportunity to work with his hands. Randy often helped random people in need of assistance with whatever tasks they couldn’t accomplish themselves; he found it rewarding to help those that perhaps didn’t have the ability to manage those things.
Randy was extremely outgoing, he enjoyed working with his hands and could fix nearly anything. He had of love of music, singing and song writing; he wrote a great number of songs, produced the music and sang the lyrics. He spent much of his time playing Frisbee golf and playing basketball; he was an exceptional athlete at both sports. He always found time for riding skateboards and riding bikes; he could manage amazing tricks on both; he was such a natural when it came to that sort of thing. Randy’s best attribute was he was a kind soul with a heart that knew no boundaries.
Randy is survived by his father, Wayne Jr.; mother, Angela ; son, Robert; daughter, Faith; siblings: Carly, Cody, Cippio, and Jordan; grandmother, Shirley; and many loving cousins, aunts and uncles; all of whom have played a huge role in Randy’s life and he loved them all.
Randy will forever be in our hearts and our memories…God bless.

I remember all the times you eather lived with us or just stayed for a little bit, the thing that I remember the most is when you would be working with your uncle jimmy and I would tell you that you have to be up early and be ready to go with him and every time I would have e to go in the room and give you a good kick on your foot to get you moving and to tell you he is waiting for you and you would say oh shit (lol). We love you so much, you where so talented in so many y things making skate board working on just about everything you carved a bird out of wood with grandpa's pocket knife and you asked me if I would hold onto it because you would probably loos it, you asked me if I could keep it for you because you made it for robert I promise you I will give it to him when it's time I will miss you ever so much.
