Philo, Randall C.

Gates: Randall C Philo (nee Butz) passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, January 29, 2019. 

Randy is predeceased by his parents, Eleanor and Robert Wiegand, Clifford Butz, and his sister Dawn Flowers and late wife Barbara Philo. He is survived by his wife, Lori Cruz, his children, Arika Grosskopf (Jarame, Emma, Mathias, & Arilee), Jeanette Grosskopf (Abigail), Randi Butz (Barbara, Villette & Ariane), and Robert Butz (Dominic), Jennifer and Jeffrey Cruz, brother David (Karen) Peters, other family, many friends and his beloved dog, Busta.

Randy was a dreamer who spent many years turning his farm into a loving home for his family. He spent hours wandering the fields, building the biggest bonfires, and always believed that the sunset looked best over his land. He was an avid pool player and loved to hunt with his son.  He loved sharing his knowledge with anyone who would listen and enjoyed tinkering with anything he could get his hands on. He was a strong provider who never ceased to be amazed by the love and accomplishments of his wife and children.

Randy was a true friend, proud father and Papa, loving husband, brother, uncle, son, confidant, and a wonderful man who will be deeply missed, but NEVER forgotten. We Love You  <3
