Other passions of Randy’s included RV camping, bike riding, car mechanics, history, playing games with friends, and spending time with family.

He is also survived by his parents-in-law, Bob and Pat Kolze; his brother-in-law, Bob Kolze, Jr., and sister-in-law, Kathleen Kolze; his siblings Ron Cichon, Robbie Cichon, Roger Cichon, and Richard Cichon; as well as stepbrothers, Rueben Sanchez, Tom and Michael Hejhal; and several nieces, nephews and cousins.
