Randy was born in Richmond to Henry and Lorraine (Ressemann) Fischer. He married Terri Svihel on January 8, 1977 in St. Boniface Catholic Church, Cold Spring. Randy worked for Burlington Northern Railroad and then for Cold Spring Granite Company for 30 years. Randy was an avid hunter and fisherman; his greatest passion in life was spending time with his wife, who is and will always be his best friend. Many joys in life came with being a part of his children’s lives and that of his grandson, Landon, and their adventures to the park. He found pleasure in classic cars, snowmobiling, and taking day trips with those he loved. Above all else, he will be remembered for being a loving husband, father, son, brother, uncle, brother-in-law, grandpa, and loyal friend to many.
Survivors include his loving wife, Terri; children, Brad (Melissa), Ryan, Kelsey and her significant other Eli; mother, Lorraine; sisters, Sharon Brown, Janel (Mark) Roettger; brothers and sisters-in law, Jerry (Lorraine) Svihel, Kathy (Ken) Sandquist, Nancy (Don) Wood, Jane (Brian) Benda, Jean (Denis) Schmitz, Carol (Jeff) Hommerding, Ann (Stan) Benda, Randy (Jill) Svihel, Gail (Dale) Marleau, Shannon (Ryan) Lozon; grandchildren, Landon, and baby to be; mother and father-in-law, Adeline and Frank Svihel, and many nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his father, Henry; his sister, Jane, and his brother, David.
