Charles Randall “Randy” Owens, 67, our beloved husband, dad, papa, great-grandpa and friend went home to be with his Lord and Savior on October 2, 2017.

Randy was born in Winchester, Indiana on February 13, 1950. He lived the first 13 years of his life near the family farm in Muncie, Indiana. He moved to the Houston area in 1963 where he lived the remainder of his life. Growing up, Randy was an accomplished athlete and excelled in both baseball and basketball.

While playing sports in High School, Randy met the love of his life, Debbie. They immediately fell in love and were married on July 27, 1968. From 1969 – 1972 he served his country in the United States Air Force. In 1976, he began to work at his father-in-law’s trucking company. This experience led him and Debbie to start their own transportation company. This company has been a family business and at one time employed all of their children (Rick, Wade, and Deah). Randy led the company until his recent retirement, when Debbie, his son Rick, and son-in-law Stephen assumed leadership.

Randy’s greatest passion was Jesus, and it was evident in his life by the way he loved and led his family. He treasured spending time with them. You would regularly find him spending hours with his grandkids watching their favorite animated bible videos, attending their activities, and making memories at the ranch. He was deeply loved by his family, never met a stranger, and for the last 15 years (together with his grandkids) welcomed people as they entered Sagemont Church.

He is survived in death by his wife Debbie Owens, children Rick and Tarrah Owens, Wade and Kim Owens, Deah and Stephen Nix, grandchildren Taylor Owens, Sydney Owens, Morgan Owens, Caleb Owens, Madilynn Owens, Kennedy Owens, Emily and Ricky Teepe, Natalie Nix, Lance Nix, Haleigh Nix, Preslie Nix, and great-grandson Everett Teepe, brothers Greg and his wife Connie, David and his wife Tracey, and numerous nieces and nephews.

Visitation will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Friday, October 6, 2017, at Niday Funeral Home – Beamer Chapel. The service celebrating Randy’s life will be held at 2:00 p.m., Saturday, October 7, 2017, at Sagemont Church. Interment will follow at Rosewood Memorial Park in Humble.
