Randall “Randy” Orin Hughes, 71, of Indianapolis, Indiana passed away on September 15, 2020. He was born January 6, 1949 in Indianapolis, Indiana to Carl and Leva (Hall) Hughes; he was one of ten children.

Schooner, as he is known to many, never knew a stranger. His kindness knew no bounds or color and his heart knew no judgment. He remembered every face and name, always had a smile, and was the life of any party. On February 1, 2020 at a celebration of life party surrounded by family and friends he married his long time sweetheart, Kathy-Kate Davis Hundley. Randy proudly served his country in the Vietnam War after being drafted by the Army in 1968. His first job was at Big Hoss Pizza. He also worked for the gas company and LM Goodson. Much of his life he worked in the construction trade. He was a longstanding member of the VFW Post #98 and always shared his generosity with Amvets and neighboring posts. For many years he bowled in a league.

His family was his greatest love and priority. He was the best big brother to his siblings and was always there for his mom LJ after his dad passed unexpectedly. Schoon’s grandchildren and great grandchildren were the light of his life. The close bond he shared with his daughter Rhiannon was second to none. He was excited to have his only son Gabe. He was reunited with his daughter Kathleen in April 2019. He was also a proud stepfather to JR and Heather Hundley.

Randy is preceded in death by his parents, Carl and Leva; wife Karen (White) Hughes, sister, Sandy Thomas and brother-in-law, Gary Faires. Surviving to carry on his legacy are wife, Kathy-Kate David Hundley and children, Kathleen (Tim) Anderson, Rhiannon (Bobby Woodruff Jr) Hughes, and Gabriel Hughes and stepchildren JR and Heather; Siblings Michael Hughes, Mark (Carol) Hughes, Sheila Faires, Brian Hughes, Sharon (Phil) Ortega, Shelley Stephens, Brett (Shannon) Hughes, and Stacy Hughes-Stanjevich; 9 grandchildren – Lexi, Bobbi, Treyvon, Aaron, Rachel, Kyle, Isabella, Gabriella and Bronx; and 7 great-grandchildren - Gregory, Ryan, Julian, Quentin, Lucius, Alaiyah, and Amiyah; plus 57 nieces and nephews he loved as his own; as well as numerous extended family members and friends - all special in his heart.

Visitation will be Sunday, September 20th from 1-4 PM at Family Funeral Care at 5791 Rockville Rd, Indianapolis, IN 46224. Funeral services will immediately follow. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation in Schooner’s memory to The VFW Post #98, St. Nicholas Serbian-Orthodox Church, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, or charity of your choice.

This picture was taken the first day I met Schoon. He was such a funny, sweet, kind and special person and I am so grateful to have been his sister-in-law for the past 27 years. I cannot believe he is gone. I miss him already. I love you all, Hughes Fam and wish we could have been with you to say goodbye.

I was born a day before his 17th birthday and was told I was his birthday present. He told me how he had to drive our Mom to the hospital because our Dad was a Truck Driver and on the road. He said the Dad’s in the waiting room said to him you look young to be a Dad and he had to tell them he was with his Mom. Even with our age difference we have always been close. He would always introduce me and my sisters as his older Sisters...lol I’m very blessed to have been with him on his final days and help with his care.Thank you for your Service and for always being there for us! I love and miss you Schoony! RIH ❤️ -love your baby Sis

I only got to meet my Grandfather Schooner once, but as a fellow Brother In Arms - from a different war, different generation and a different time all together I can say he will be missed - as my Grandfather and my Brother! May you be surrounded by your Family, Friends and Fallen Brother's and Sister's now in peace for all eternity!

Randy was such a fun, stand-up guy. We always enjoyed chatting with him and loved his stories. Randy was truly one of the good guys. Godspeed, Randy.

April 2019 I was blessed to be reunited with you Dad. You welcomed me and simply said "Finally!" Only God knows why we had to spend 50 years apart, but you told me your prayers had been answered. I was honored to be able to help care for you in your final days. You let me go for my good and now I do the same for you. Rest in peace my guardian angel. As I sang to you on your final day - God be with you til we meet again.
All my love, your firstborn Kathleen

While I have been away from the family in Indianapolis for many years, Aunt Lee and Tribe always brought fond memories of family gatherings in "the old days." As I recall, Randy was always larger than life - fun loving, laughing, and the center of activities.

More recently, Randy would come to visit our mom, Hazel (his Aunt and Carl's sister), regularly. Once when we were visiting Indy, a while back, he came over and we sat on Mom's porch. Randy was chock full of family stories that I had never heard and it was delightful! His dedication to his mother, my Aunt Lee, was admirable.

Randy, you will be missed terribly by your family and friends! RIP,
