Obituary for Randy S. Lindy

Randy Scott Lindy, was called home to his
eternal reward in heaven and reunited with his
many loved ones, while surrounded by family,
on March 7, 2019 following a brief illness. By
his side, as she could always be found, was his
loving wife, best friend and soulmate, Sonja.
It was obvious, to anyone who knew them, that
she was his hearts desire and a kindred spirit
whom he adored. And she felt the same deep
rooted feelings for him. The two enjoyed 31
years of happiness together and would have
been married 19 years on March 11, 2019. Though
cut short, few of us ever experience the
true connection that Sonja and Randy were
fortunate enough to call their own.
Randy's family was paramount to him and even
though circumstances weren't always ideal,
the ones he loved were always foremost in his
thoughts. Daughters, Jamie (Brian), Rachelle
(Kyle) and Stephanie (Eric), and son Jason
(Morgan), were loved unconditionally by their
Dad. As were his grandchildren Tyler, Rylee,
Conner, Madyson and Allyson whom he adored
endlessly. And that love was returned to him by
his children and grandchildren, as was shown
by his son Jason, who gave his Dad the most
wonderful gift of happiness in his last weeks,
and his daughter Rachelle in making him smile
and loving him like a true Dad.
Randy was a warm and soft spoken man with a
heart of gold. For those of us who knew him, we
were the lucky ones, for we benefitted from his
many gifts. His giving nature, easy going way
and ability to passionately advise on an array of
subjects, allowed him to help so many over the
years. His exacting and fastidious work ethic
shines in many homes of his family, loved ones
and strangers alike.
Randy was an avid hunter with the skill to
match his fervor for the sport. He loved that
his wife hunted as well and the two spent many
hours enjoying the outdoors together. Randy
was fortunate to spent the last few months
of his life doing that very thing; hunting 7
days a week. He and Sonja had retired and
found their paradise at Rocky Fork Lake in
Hillsboro, Ohio, known as Blueberry Hill. It
was there that he was able to fulfill a lifelong
dream in his last days; he landed a beautiful 11
point Ohio Whitetail.
Randy hunted in the winter, but summers were
saved for riding his Harley. He was one of the
founders of the local chapter of R.A.A.D., Riders
Against Alzheimer's disease, in honor of his
beloved mother. His pride and joy was "Sassy",
a 2003 Anniversary Edition, Dyna Lowrider. His
motto was "Live to Ride, Ride to Live", which
he truly lived by. And although it was hell on
his mustache, "Wind Therapy" was the answer
to all of life's ills for Randy. It's where he was
happiest. With Sonja behind him, her loving
arms wrapped around him and the beautiful
wide open road before him.
Randy was preceded in death by his Father,
Mother and most recently, his sister, Bonnie
(John). In addition to his family, Randy will be
profoundly missed by his many friends who
loved him dearly and many more who thought of
him as "Everyone's Dad".
A very special thank you to Randy's
sister-in-law Kitty, who was there whenever
she was needed and for the love and support
she now gives Sonja in the days ahead. Her
kindness has been and will be indispensable.
Also, many thanks go to the doctors and staff
at Bethesda North Hospital, for the care and
compassion they gave Randy.
A celebration of life will be held at Harley-
Davidson of Erie, on West 12th Street, Erie,
Pa on March 23, from 1-3 in the back meeting
room. There will be a Final Ride for Randy to
Kinzua Dam (Jakes Rocks), to be announced via
Facebook at a later date when weather permits.
