Born in Detroit on May 20, 1948, Randy’s entrepreneurial spirit began to shine at the age of 12 who embarked on his own paper route. A staple in his neighborhood, he grew up as a camp counselor, supervising young people, before leaving for Michigan State University. He obtained his bachelor’s degree in psychology and a master’s degree in guidance. After graduating, he married his college girlfriend, Anne Gowell, and worked as a counselor at Washtenaw Community College. After two years, they moved to his lifelong home in Ludington.
As a man who lived his life as if he would never die, he spent his years investing in real estate and art, traveling and finding beauty in all things. A car accident in 1986 changed the course of his life for good. A complicated man, he found solace in photography and writing in his later years.
Randy is survived by her fiancÃ© and partner Terri Hubbard and her four children Heather (Jeremy Glawe), Autumn (Brian Issitt), Crystal (James Young) and Matthew (Amanda) as well as their mother Anne. He made memories with his eight grandchildren and has another on the way. His brothers Ron and Rob, and his faithful friends Randy Stinnett and Kara Hayes, stayed by his side until the end.
He was predeceased by his two children, Randy Harvey Jr. and Misty Starr and his parents Louis and Lorraine.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to Point Man ministries.
