Randy grew up and attended school in Wellington, Kansas. He played on the Wellington High School golf team and participated in Debate. Upon graduation from high school he attended Wichita State University and majored in accounting, receiving his bachelor’s degree in December of 1974. While at WSU he was a member of the Beta Theta Pi fraternity and served as treasurer and kitchen manager. Randy was given the opportunity to be employed in the ministry for ten years as a church administrator for a non-denominational church in Wichita. In addition to his responsibilities there he was a member of the church band and played the trumpet, flugle horn and saxophone. He later worked as the administrator/accountant for a large doctor’s office, and eventually he and his wife Janell owned and operated a retail tax office, which they sold and retired from two years ago. Randy was a devoted husband, father and grandfather. His family was THE most important thing to him besides his faith in the Lord and his service to others. He loved serving and helping other people. The church ministry he was in gave him tremendous satisfaction. He enjoyed golf, pickleball, and attending his childrens’ and grandchildrens’ athletic events. After his children were grown he learned how to swing dance with Janell and became involved with the Wichita Swing Dance Society, serving as the president for 2 years. He and Janell made many good friends through dancing and had continued to enjoy social dancing for almost 19 years. Randy was known to his many friends as having a quick wit and always ready with a new joke or jab. Another source of pleasure for him was playing his trumpet and flugle horn and having the privilege of accompanying some of his favorite local musicians.

Survivors include his loving wife; Janell Sawyer, children; Stacey Davis, Lindsay (Jerrit) Burgess, Brent Sawyer, brother; Blake Sawyer, grandchildren; Aiden Davis, Ashlyn Davis, Adilynn Burgess, Livia Burgess.
