Randall (Randy) Ray Piper of Warsaw, Indiana passed away February 13, 2018 after a 15-month battle of Lymphoma at the age of 67. He was born on November 15, 1950 to V. Ray and Rosemary (Spangle) Piper, along with his twin brother, Rodney, in Wabash, Indiana.

Randy never stopped smiling. Known for his contagious laugh and rock-n-roll attitude, Randy will live in the hearts of all who have had the pleasure of knowing him. He enjoyed “shootin’ the breeze” with his friends and family, playing air drums and gituar to classic rock, telling jokes, and could see the silver lining in any situation. He showed his talents in woodworking through construction for 35+ years. His blood sweat and tears were spread all across the country in countless homes and businesses with astounding craftsmanship.

He is preceded in death by his son, Brian Ray Piper.
