Randy’s most prized role was that of being a dad. He was the perfect example of what a father should be. His children were his entire world. Morgan 21, Trystan 18, Randalyn 15, and Brendan 12, were his everything. They were his first priority, and he made sure they (and everyone else) always knew how much he loved them.
Randy was a wonderful husband. He was doting, loving, caring, and affectionate. From the moment he met his wife, Amy Lynn Hyer Humphries, he cherished and adored her. The 25 years they spent together brought them both incomparable joy. She was truly his queen, and he valued her as such.
Randy had an amazing sense of humor. He was brilliant and lighthearted and funny. Even over the last two years, he was constantly cracking jokes about his physical limitations. It was more important for him to be able to laugh at himself than to feel sorry for himself.
Randy had a smile and a word of encouragement for all. Even though he was fighting the battle of his life, he was the one who took the time to build others up. He was more concerned about offering comfort and reassurance than in receiving any himself.
Randy was a man of faith. From the very beginning, he put his life in the hands of the Lord. His testimony was of utmost importance to him. He trusted in a power greater than his own. He was a light to everyone around him. He was a matchless example of what faith should be.
Randy touched the lives of innumerable people through his kindness, strength and optimism. He leaves behind an untold legacy of courage, laughter, testimony, and love. Everyone who knew him is better for it. Randy did not lose in his fight against cancer. And those who had the honor of being even a small part of his life gained everything.

Parents: Dahl (Bud) and Sadie Munford Humphries and Marvin and Brenda Morgan Hyer, Siblings: Penny (David) Groneman, Joe (Kathy), Chad (Amy), Chris (Jessie) Humphries, Andy (Ellene) Hyer, and Jana Hyer Jackson .
