Randy John REIDY

Feb 16, 1959 – May 26, 2018
Randy John Reidy passed away following a lengthy illness on Saturday, May 26, 2018.

He was born in Red Deer, Alberta to parents Fern and Jack Reidy on February 16, 1959, attending school in Red Deer from grades one to twelve.

Randy moved to Calgary shortly after graduation, where he resided the remainder of his life, commencing a successful career as a natural born salesman, who also pursued his love for sports, particularly football, and excelled at most things, including his extraordinary artistic talents, which he unfortunately kept mainly to himself. That was his way. Randy will be remembered for his handsome good looks, his huge smile, wry humour, and twinkling blue eyes. His heart was big and his soul was gentle.

With a true love of dogs, Randy had a “buddy” beside him through most of his life. He was a loyal friend, co-worker, brother, and uncle, always providing a laugh, despite what life brought his way. 

Randy is survived by: his sister, Jackie Roberts (Victoria, BC); brother Cameron Reidy (Red Deer, AB); niece, Shara Grice (Victoria, BC); niece, Lindsay Grice (Calgary, AB), and partner, Kristi Sheldan (Airdre, AB).

He was pre-deceased by his Mom and Dad. At Randy’s request, there will be no service.

Donations in his memory may be made to Central Alberta Humane Society (403-342-7722/ www.cahumane.com). Until we meet again, Randy, may God hold you in the palm of his hand.
