1958 – 2013
Randy Lorne Flahr “Rigdog” passed away suddenly as a result of a heart attack on May 22, 2013 in Sylvan Lake, Alberta.
Randy was born in Kindersley, Saskatchewan but lived overseas for the majority of his childhood due to his father’s career with BJ Services. At age 22 Randy finally settled in Sylvan Lake. He went on to follow in his father’s footsteps with a career in the Oilfield. His work took him all over the world and most recently to Albania. Randy, his loving wife Michelle and youngest daughter Ashley spent 2007-2011 living in Mexico with his job. He fell in love with the Mexican people and culture and dreamed of building a home there and moving back one day. Randy was a sun worshiper and loved all sports, especially hockey and golf. If he wasn’t at work or at home, you would definitely find him at Meadowlands Golf Course. Not a day will go by that he will not be thought of and missed.
He is survived by his loving wife Michelle of 24 years, six children: Melanie, Kristina, Jessy le Vann (Brian le Vann), Randy, Sandra, Ashley; his mother Beverly Wolfe; sisters: Sherry, Shelly (Kevin Hinds); Brother Rick (Glenda), eight grandchildren, numerous cousins and extended family.
He is predeceased by his father Ben Flahr.
A Funeral Service was held at the Chapel of the Sylvan Lake Funeral Home, on Wednesday May 29th, at 11:30 AM. Interment will follow at the Sylvan Lake Cemetery. Luncheon to follow at the Sylvan Lake Legion.
As an expression of sympathy, donations can be made to the trust account that has been set up at the CIBC to aid Michelle in the upcoming months.
