Randall P. "Randy" Fish Sr.

July 27, 1963March 5, 2018

The great unsung hero and a friend to many, Randall P. “Randy” Fish, Sr. 54, of Damon Court, Keene, NH, passed away suddenly at his home in Keene on Monday, March 05, 2018.

His parents, Martha J. (Paige) and Ronald Paul Fish Sr. proudly welcomed their son into the world on July 27, 1963 in Keene, NH.

Randy worked for many years as a roofer, first with Fish Roofing, then with Al Fauteaux Roofing, and recently with Melanson Company, all in Keene. He also worked with GSIL in Keene. He was a very hard worker, and life found him the happiest when he was working.

His perfect day would find him at work, and later at home with his family, caring for his brother, Ricki, and relaxing with a cold beer. He was a hero to everyone, with the biggest of hearts.

Randy enjoyed hunting and fishing; listening to classic rock and old country music; and tinkering with cars. He also enjoyed playing softball in the men’s softball league, playing on the West Swanzey Athletic Association and Fish Roofing teams.

After a lifetime of smoking, Randy finally stopped, just 10 days prior to his passing.

He will be greatly missed by many, especially his four children, Stephanie M. Mattson of Royalston, MA, Randall P. Fish, Jr. and his fiancé, Christina Hill of Keene, Robie P. Fish, Sr. and his wife, Felicia, of Keene, Krystal Sue Fish and her fiancé, Clifford Hudson, of Swanzey, NH; his ten grandchildren, Kiara, Collin, Avah, Julius, Robie, Jr., Alaya, Marley, Clifford, III, Sunner and Journee; three brothers, Ronald P. Fish, Jr. of West Swanzey, NH, Ricki P. Fish, Sr. of Keene, Russell P. Fish of West Swanzey; a sister, Lisa J. Lamoureux and her husband, James of Gilsum, NH; eleven nieces and nephews; and the mothers of his children, Lorenda Duquette of Keene and Bobbi Jo Mattson of Royalston.

A memorial service will be held on Thursday, March 15th at 11:00AM in the Foley Funeral Home, 49 Court Street, Keene. Burial will be in the spring in the Oak Hill Cemetery, West Swanzey. Family and friends are invited to call on Wednesday evening from 5:00 to 7:00PM at the Foley Funeral Home.

For those who wish, donations may be made in Randy’s memory to The Community Kitchen, PO Box 1315, Keene, NH 03431.

I am so very sorry and sad for the entire Fish Family. Randy was a great man with an infectious smile and a heart as big as the sky. He was a great friend and he will be missed greatly by all he knew. It did not matter if you saw Randy once a week or only once a year he never changed he was a true friend.

I will miss you my friend until we meet again you will live in my heart with memories. I love you Brother always and Forever. I send Randy's entire family good thoughts, great memories and prayers during this difficult time.
