Roger H. Randolph

March 31, 1935 - February 03, 2019

Roger H. Randolph Roger H. Randolph passed away peacefully Super Bowl Sunday afternoon at Niagara Hospice. He is survived by his wife of 58 years, Linda Pickles; his son, Ronald (Jessica); grandson, Brandon; two great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews. He is predeceased by daughter, Lisa.
A 40-year employee of Harrison Radiator, served six years in the National Guard, bowler, boater, amateur horticulturalist, master of soups, chilis, and spicy pickler of whatever you could fit in a jar. A frequent West End Socialite with a select contingent, who enjoyed when he had his attitude adjusted. Although not a particularly avid hockey fan, he could often be found running his mouth in the Penalty Box. He more than occasionally waxed philosophically upon the elements of life he found to be simply-complicated. He enjoyed tending to his yard, and especially cultivating and keeping at bay a beautiful blossoming, monster wistera plant that constantly strove to envelop his home.
Over the years, Roger spent considerable time and minimal energy with friends in the French River region of Canada. Roger was an avid lover of music. His second girlfriend, Alexa, who perished from a table fall, is thankfully survived by his Hey Google video speaker, who he enjoyed wrestling with in his on-going affair to find, share and enjoy the songs of his life and dreams.
Roger is survived by brothers, John (Ginny,) Jim (Shirley) and Gary (Brenda); sisters-in-law, Sylvia (Daniel) Kellogg and Marcia Van Brocklin; brothers-in-law, Gary (Judy) Pickles and Mark (Joan) Pickles; and numerous grandchildren, nephews and nieces.
Friends and family should feel free to visit Saturday, February 9th from 1-4 PM at Prudden & Kandt Funeral Home, 242 Genesee St., Lockport. Red Solo cups at the door.
