A memorial service celebrating the life of Randy L. Eick, age 63, of Hebron and formerly of Massillon, was held November 5, 2017, at The Heath Chapel of Henderson-Van Atta-Stickle Funeral and Cremation Service with Reverend Janet Ross officiating. Randy passed away unexpectedly October 31, 2017, at Union Hospital in Dover, Ohio.
He was born November 19, 1953, in in Canton, to the late Donald O. and Betty Lou (Evans) Eick.
Randy was a simple man who lived a simple life and loved the simple things, although there was nothing that he loved more than his family. He adored his daughters, revered his wife and was in love at first sight with his grandchildren. His face would light up every time he saw them.
He had a lifelong passion of working with his hands and was a skilled carpenter. He loved crafting works of arts for his family and friends. Since retiring in 2015, his interests have expanded to include cooking, baking and dabbling in the garden. Randy was an avid sports fan of the Cleveland area clubs and of course he bled Scarlet and Grey.
He is survived by his wife of 30 years, Helen M. (Stahler) Eick; two daughters, Erin M. (Jay) Gallaher of Pataskala and Angela R. (Tim) Leighton of Massillon; two sisters, Dawn “Nickie” Eick of Oak Hill, Ohio and Tammy Crowl of Minerva, Ohio; three wonderful grandchildren, Olivia Gallaher, Jayce Gallaher and TaLon Drescher; and honorary daughters, DeLynn Drescher and Megan Bond.
Memorial contributions may be made in Randy’s name to the Licking County Humane Society, 825 Thornwood Drive SW, Heath, Ohio 43056.
The Heath Chapel of Henderson Van Atta-Stickle Funeral & Cremation Service is assisting the Eick family with arrangements.
