Randy Gene Whitcomb, age 67, of Bellevue, Michigan, passed away on Friday, January 20, 2023 with family by his side in the comfort of his home.

Randy was born in Owosso, Michigan on April 15, 1955, to George Sr. and Shirley (Springs) Whitcomb. He grew up in Bellevue and worked on the family farm from a young age. Randy was known to be a character during his teenage years; just ask one of his 6 siblings. In 1973 Randy graduated from Bellevue High School and in 1975 he married his loving wife Deborah Sue (Clift) and they shared 48 wonderful years together raising their 3 children in their Bellevue home.

Randy was employed by Rock Tenn Company in Battle Creek, Michigan for 38 years (1974-2012). He served 19 years as a volunteer firefighter with the Bellevue Community Fire Department and was a member of the Bellevue Conservation Club over the years.

Randy enjoyed snow plowing the neighborhood on his quad at 5am, mowing lawns on his John Deere tractor, hunting, fishing, boating, playing cards and golfing with family and friends in his leisure time. He will be dearly missed by all.

Randy is survived by his loving wife Deborah, his children, Garett (Char) Whitcomb and Amy (Phil) Rigelman, his grandchildren Michael (Tawni) Makley, Torey (Sarah) Makley, Chandler (Lauren) Adams, Levi Rigelman and Andrew Rigelman, his 5 great grandchildren, his siblings, Gary (Evelyn) Whitcomb, Peggy (John) Masters, Ron Whitcomb, Dan (Jayne) Whitcomb, sister-in-law Brenda (Andy) Harrison and many nieces and nephews.
