Randolph E. “Randy” Wegner

Feb 11, 1957 - Dec 12, 2021


Randy found peace in the loving arms of God on Sunday, December 12, 2021 at Sharon S. Richardson Community Hospice, surrounded by his loving wife and children.

How do you measure a man who seemed to be as big in heart as he was in stature? Randy wore a genuine smile. He would go out of his way to say hi to a friend, chat, or spin a tale to an open ear. You could be sure that if you were in his company, you were going to have a laugh, though his children would say he was the one who laughed hardest at his own jokes.

Randy was born February 11, 1957 in Manitowoc, WI, the first son of Edward and Audrey Wegner. He grew up in Cleveland, WI with his three siblings, where he also attended grade school. Randy went on to graduate from Sheboygan North High School in 1975.

In 1981 Randy met his sweetheart, Ann, at the Kiel Picnic and they married on September 3, 1983. The couple enjoyed many fun and adventurous years, including camping at Crooked Lake with family. Camping was certainly more exciting with one of Randy’s inventions: the “Styrocraft”, a raft he built of styrofoam. In addition to camping, Randy and Ann had fun exploring Jamaica and Mexico.

The Wegners made their home in Sheboygan, where they lovingly raised three children. As a proud father, Randy adored his daughters, Emily and Andrea, and was ecstatic when his son Randolph, Jr. was born. Randy found many fun ways to entertain his children, including building an igloo which was so structurally sound it did not melt until May. His children knew that he supported them in everything that they did. He was so proud of all three.

In his later years, Randy was overjoyed to be blessed by grandchildren. Often he was the biggest kid in the group, or the mountain that they could climb all over. Family life meant everything to him.

Randy was a hardworking man who gave everything his best. Randy worked as a Mason his entire life. While this work was difficult and demanding, it also allowed him the opportunity to be artistically creative. Randy joined the International Union of Bricklayers Local #11 in 1992 and was an active member until his retirement last year. He was an expert in stonework. Along with his own home, he beautified many homes in the area.

Hobbies included locksmithing, gardening, and composting. His family often referred to gardening as “Dad’s obsession”.

Randy was a faithful man and enjoyed participating in online scripture studies with the Shepherd’s Chapel Church. He and Ann set time aside nearly every day for some bible study and prayer. Randy applied these teachings to his life: He was a good guy, and a constant jokester, who was always willing to lend a helping hand. Randy was loved by many.

Survivors include his wife, Ann (Worth) Wegner; children, Emily Wegner, Andrea (Eric) Arentsen and Randolph (Melissa) Wegner; grandchildren, Alivia Adler, Thambi and Zedric Wegner, and Cora and Soren Arentsen. Other survivors include sisters, Barb Wegner and Joan Beatty; brother, John (Cheri) Wegner; brothers-in-law, John (Max) Worth, Billy (Jen Worth); sisters-in-law, Kathy Worth and Tricia Worth, as well as many nieces and nephews.

Randy was preceded in death by his parents, Edward and Audrey Wegner; in-laws, William and Edith Worth and several brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nephews, and nieces.

Randy’s wife and family would like to acknowledge and sincerely express appreciation to the staff at Sharon S. Richardson Community Hospice for their kindness, love, and support during Randy’s final days.

Visitation will be held at Reinbold-Novak Funeral Home, 1535 S. 12th St., Sheboygan, WI on Saturday, December 18th from 9:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. followed by a service officiated by Chaplain Mariann Brandt.

I smile when I think of Randy. He had great funny jokes and stories that made us all laugh. He was a super hard worker, a hard charger, that would always strive for excellence . He was a master at stone, brick and concrete work. I had the fortune of working with him on many construction jobs. I asked Randy to be my best man in 2003. He made my wedding a hit by secretly, with white marker, write "Help Me", on the bottom of my dress shoes. When Ellen and I knelt at the alter. The congregation burst out laughing. It was a big hit and broke the ice. I will always remember him as a kind and understanding friend. You left us way too early Randy. REST IN PEACE IN YOUR SAVIOURS ARMS.. Gene Decker
