Randy Lind, the beloved son of Keith and Marty (McCrory) Lind passed away at the age of 50 on October 22, 2023, in Madison, Wisconsin. He was our special Christmas gift, born on December 25, 1972. He never missed a Christmas at home with his family.
Randy was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He moved at an early age to Appleton with his family. He loved sports and was an avid Packers and Brewers fan. He was also a Packers team owner. Randy attended as many games as possible. He played sports in the Appleton school district. Randy was on the Kiwanis little league baseball team that won the Wisconsin state championship and participated in the regionals in Baxter Springs, Kansas. He also played football at Wilson Middle School and Appleton West High School. Randy took pride in earning an Eagle Scout award in Troop 57 at Highlands Grade School.
Randy loved to collect and trade baseball cards. He also had a large collection of bobbleheads – some that he purchased, but many that were acquired at Brewers games. Randy enjoyed going to garage sales where he loved to bargain for various trunks and other items that filled his apartment.
He attended school at the University of Wisconsin Madison and Stevens Point, but his love was cooking. He worked at various restaurants in Appleton, Stevens Point, and Madison. He was part of the “cook clique” in Madison. Randy most recently worked at Capitol Lakes Retirement Home in Madison, which he thoroughly enjoyed.
Randy is further survived by his grieving and closely-knit brothers, Brad, Jason, and Kevin (Rebecca); one nephew, Julian; his uncle and aunt, Richard and Dianne McCrory; and his cousins, TJ and Lynn (David) Brown.
A memorial visitation will be held for Randy on Monday, November 6th, 2023, from 10:00-11:30 AM at Wichmann Funeral Home, 537 N. Superior St, Appleton, WI 54911 with a memorial service to follow at 11:30 AM. Randy will be laid to rest at Highland Memorial Park soon after Christmas in 2023.
He was very much loved by his family and well-liked by his many friends. Randy, our son and brother, rest in peace. Love forever.
