       Randolph Joseph Wionzek was born April 8, 1958 to Florence (Fullowka) and Joseph Wionzek at the Invermay Hospital. Randy was raised on the family farm near Hazel Dell, Saskatchewan. Randy was the eldest of three children. Randy attended Shaftesbury School in Hazel Dell, Saskatchewan and later attended high school in Sturgis, Saskatchewan.

     In his youth, he participated in and enjoyed team roping, and showing both light and heavy horses. He was a director of the Invermay Agricultural Society. Randy and his father also gave sleigh rides at Hazel Dell Husky Days with their Belgian draft horse team.

     Randy worked alongside his father, Joseph, on the family farm. Randy enjoyed lifelong careers as a cattleman, farmer, and truck driver. He cared deeply for many animals, from the smallest kitten to the biggest horse. He enjoyed farm sales, car shows, and collecting farm toys and other vintage memorabilia.

     On July 8, 1989, Randy married Sylvia Rubletz - the love of his life. Together they built their own homestead and started their farm. Together they had three children: Cody, Joel, and Jessylee. Randy was a hard worker, enjoyed animals, the outdoors, and family life. Randy’s children were his pride and joy and he was very proud of all their accomplishments. Randy was also very proud of and loved dearly his son-in-law, Bryce, and daughter-in-law, Sarah. 

     He loved to get up early and watch the sunrises. Randy loved to visit with his children shared many hours sitting on the deck with them, in the summer, talking, drinking iced tea, and having bonfires. Randy did not like large crowds or public speaking, but one to one or in a group of friends he could talk and visit with them for hours. He was a shoulder to lean on, a helping hand if you need one, and purveyor of advice and wisdom, or just someone who would listen.
