Steven “Randy” Williams was born April 9, 1959 in Oklahoma City to Sherman and Sue Williams. He passed away quietly in the comfort of his home with his wife and daughter by his side.
As a young boy Randy was mechanical and could take anything apart and put it back together. He loved these projects and never gave up until a solution was found. Randy was always tinkering with something. He built motorized scooters before they existed and the neighborhood kids would all come to check out his latest projects. As a child he also enjoyed playing baseball but it was music that was his real true passion.
Randy was born with a musical talent that most people can only dream about. At the age of 19, he got his own fiddle and could play anything by ear. Over the next couple of decades he belonged to several bands, the most memorable one being “Western Legend”. His family followed him all over to hear him play. RC Car Racing was another passion that Randy went all in at. He was very competitive and hated to lose, which he rarely did. Randy was also a talented machinist/toolmaker for over 40 years, most recently at Technogenia. He truly enjoyed working there and it allowed him to do another thing he loved.
His daughter made him a PaPa to his granddaughter Marlowe in December 2016 and he took a dream vacation to Cozumel with his wife Jennifer in October 2017 where they went parasailing. He was a family man who loved hard and wore his heart on his sleeve. While he was here only 59 short years, he lived an exciting life and was always a big kid at heart.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Sherman and Sue Williams.
Randy is survived by his wife, Jennifer Gensler; daughter, Christin Russell and husband, Shane; granddaughter, Marlowe; step-son, Jeremy Gibson; siblings, Susan Whitson and husband Malcom, Scott Williams and Sheldon Williams, with a nephew and nieces.
