Randy Dean Tweed passed away peacefully in his sleep on Thursday, July 4, 2019 at the age of 67. He was born to Dean Tweed and Iris (Heyer) Tweed October 8, 1951 in Mason City, Iowa.

Randy graduated from Rockford Senior High in 1970. He enlisted in the United States Army on February 3, 1971. He served in the Army for 6 years and was honorably discharged on February 2, 1977. During his service, he was stationed in Germany for a year working in Explosive Ordnance Disposal.

Upon his return to Marble Rock, he worked with his Father in the construction business. In addition, he worked for White Manufacturing, Charles City, Iowa. It was during this time that he met Sherry Peters of Charles City, Iowa. During the 1980’s Randy began furthering his education at NIACC and began his career with Hach Company as a Field Service Manager ultimately transferring to the Houston, Texas area.

On December 29, 1973, Randy and Sherry were united in marriage. They had one son, Scott Michael Tweed. Randy and Sherry later divorced but remained close friends.

Randy was a very caring, thoughtful and generous man helping anyone in need. He enjoyed spending time with his son, family and friends. He also enjoyed spoiling his dogs over the years. He had a joy for life which included a variety of hobbies and activities. Some of those activities included cheering on the Astros and Texans but his favorite team was the Green Bay Packers. He also enjoyed riding motorcycles in his younger years and even shipped his Honda motorcycle home from Germany…then there was his first brand new car, a white Pontiac Firebird. His favorite of all though was his boat, oh how he loved being on the water driving his boat fast and laughing. Randy had an infectious laugh that we will never forget.

I never thought I would be sitting here writing my final farewell to Randy this early in his life. Because, Randy was so full of life itself. I've known Randy for half of his life. I would definitely call Randy "my best friend", and I'll miss him dearly. Some might think it a little odd that my best friend was my wife's first husband. But Randy always stayed a very close part of the family. He was with us every holiday, every birthday, and every special occasion. He was an uncle to our children. One special thing about Randy, you never saw him angry, he never uttered a foul word, and he was always there if you needed him. You couldn't ask for a better person to be around you. I know we'll meet up again, in a very
special place called "Heaven". Randy may not have been big on
religion, but I know his big heart got him on a fast train to heaven. The world is a lesser place without Randy in it. God Bless.

I went to tech school with Randy at NIACC in Mason City and have worked with him at Hach since he started in '86. He was always a kind -hearted, jovial and fun guy. I can still hear his trademark "Jeezo" response to all things astounding. Back in tech school he drove a rusted out "white" Firebird. We used to tease him about his see-thru car. ;-). My condolences to the family. Randy will be dearly missed.

Oh Randy. this past week has been so tough. Trying to deal with the reality of your passing is still so hard to believe!
You were a Amazing brother always putting family first. So thankful you made so many trips to Iowa. Having you here was always so easy as you were always eager to do anything we asked or needed. Never complaining of anything I cooked. So glad you were able to stay here with us. It just gave us that much more time together that I will forever cherish.
You were always bringing a gift for the kids and loved watching their excitement playing with them. Always finding the perfect gift to send me at Christmas by just paying attention to what I needed or may have wanted. They were always perfect!
You were the go to guy for any questions I might have especially computer wise. Thank you for being such a thoughtful, helpful, giving and most considerate brother I could ever ask for. I will miss you everyday till we are together again.
Love you, with so many tears in my eyes!

I have so many memories of things we have done together and that is what will help me get through the grief of you leaving us. I am grateful that we made many trips to Houston to see you.
As tears flow down my cheek thinking about our trip to the Zoo, the museums, the ball game, NASA and then realizing that you will no longer be there for us to come stay with and invade. You gave me such a hard time about not trying new foods.....I did try a few but not everything and never will. I am also very happy that I took time off from work while you were visiting us here. I only wish you could have made it to stay in the bed room I prepared for you so you didn't have to sleep on the couch. You have always been a GREAT big brother! Always being there when ever anyone needed anything. My kids and grandkids loved you more than you would ever know. You leave a HUGE gap in our hearts and feels like it will never get better. Our family misses you. Until we meet again.....we LOVE you
