Randy Wayne Rivers, age 64, died unexpectedly early Sunday, August 5, 2018 at his home near Greenville, MI. He was born October 2, 1953 in Mexico, MO, the son of Ramon and Bettie (Dollens) Rivers. On January 20, 1978, he married Jean Fischer. If you knew Randy, you liked him. He loved making friends and helping others. He was incredibly giving- he made and gave away endless amounts of salsa, jam, and muffins over the years. He loved hunting and gardening, and shared this love with countless others. Above all, Randy was a devoted husband, dad, grandpa, and friend who will be missed terribly, especially by his wife of over 40 years, Jean; daughters, Jessica (Todd) Andersen of Belding, MI and Ashley (Ted) Diedrich of Grand Rapids, MI; grandchildren, Nathan and Kalena Andersen and Landon and Mia Diedrich; siblings, Phyllis (Ronnie) Taylor, Debbie (J.W.) Jackson, and Rocky (Susan) Rivers, all of Missouri; sister-in-law, Donna (Robert) Layman; and many nieces and nephews and countless friends. A gathering in celebration of Randy’s life will be held from 2:00 to 6:00 pm Saturday, September 15, 2018 at Wabasis Lake Park. Memorial contributions may be given to Faith Community Christian School. Hurst Funeral Home is serving the Rivers family, and memories and messages of condolence may be shared at www.hurstfh.com.
