May 15th, 2019 in Obituaries

Randall (Randy) John Werdehausen, 59, of Holts Summit, passed away peacefully on Sunday, May 12, 2019, surrounded by his loving family. He was born on January 6, 1960, in Jefferson City, a son of John Leo and Leona Ellanora (Wieberg) Werdehausen. Randy was united in marriage on June 16, 1979, in Jefferson City, to Laurie Goetz. Randy enjoyed spending time at cattle auctions, going to the casino, watching and betting on football and basketball games, and never passed up a chance for a family meal at his kids' houses. Randy loved to watch his kids' and grandson's wrestling matches. He enjoyed going on cruises and vacations with his wife and family. He was always ready to watch a good western show or Judge Judy. He had a knack for making up lyrics to songs to fit them to his family. Most of all, Randy loved spending time with his wife, kids, and grandkids whether it was Sunday Fundays or just a quick visit at his home while he rocked in his chair and drank his Sonic tea. He was always one call away, didn't know a stranger, and willing to help anyone who needed it - especially his family. Along with his wife of 39 years, Laurie, he is survived by his children: Josh Werdehausen (Karla) of Holts Summit, Mitch Werdehausen (Kim) of Taos, Casey Werdehausen (Amanda) of Holts Summit, Sam Werdehausen of Holts Summit, Bryce Werdehausen of Holts Summit, Jennifer Roling (Brett) of Holts Summit and Brooke Hill (Charlie) of Holts Summit; mother: Leona Werdehausen; brothers: Joe Werdehausen (Kathy), Norb Werdehausen (Rhonda), Rick Weredehausen (Bridget) and Curt Werdehausen (Samantha), all of Holts Summit; sisters: Lisa Werdehausen of Holts Summit, Lori Lawrence (Mike) of New Bloomfield, and Tina Stone of Kansas; 16 grandchildren; nieces, nephews, family and friends. Randy was preceded in death by his father: John; and sister: Ruthie.
