Other Comments:
Randolph "Randy" Aldrich of the Point/Shoreland Community passed away on Tuesday, January 1, 2013, at Hospice of Northwest Ohio, Toledo at the age of 67. Randy worked for Operating Engineers Local 18 for 23 years, Toledo Caisson for 12 years and City of Toledo Streets, Bridges and Harbor for 13 years. He was a proud Marine Corp Veteran, serving in Vietnam from 1965-1967. He was a member of Club 16 (Past President), Marine Combat Helicopter Association (Popa Smoke), Marine Air Transport Association, Marine Aviation Association, Together We Serve (USMC), Ohio State V.F.W. and Ohio State American Legion. Randy was a wonderful man who was loved by everyone who met him. He loved to talk to anyone who would listen. He had a heart of gold and would give to anyone who needed anything, if at all possible. Randy's proudest joy was his service in the Marine Corp and the many associations connected with them. He will be greatly missed by family and friends and his 3 cats, who he dearly loved.

Randy was preceded in death by his father, Dayton Elwood (Bob) Aldrich, and daughter, Julie Aldrich. Left to cherish his memory are fiancé and loving partner of 20 years, Linda L. Achinger; mother, Marietta Aldrich; sons, Jacob Aldrich and Brian (Jennifer Carr) Aldrich; sister, Rebecca (Dr. Richard) Spinale; grandchildren, Connor Helminsky, Brandon and Brooke Carter; step-children, George Baz, Joseph (CarolAnn) Baz, Connie (Mark) Carter, Phil (Rachel) Buehrer; father-in-law and mother-in-law, Donald (Shirley) VanderHorst; along with many special nieces and nephews.

Visitation will begin in the David R. Jasin-Hoening Funeral Home, 5300 N. Summit St., Toledo, OH 43611, 419.726.1583 on Saturday, January 5, 2012, from 2-6 p.m. Funeral Services will follow that same evening at 6 p.m. with Pastor Mike DeLong officiating. An extra special thank you to Dr. Richard Spinale, who went above and beyond the call of duty as well as many other special doctors that treated Randy for various illnesses. We would also like to send a special thanks to Hospice of Northwest Ohio and the many nurses and staff that made the last days of his life comfortable and special. And also to family, friends and neighbor David Bunker for the extra aid they have given. In lieu of flowers, donations to the family would be appreciated to help with service expenses. Condolences may be left for the family along with photo's and words of encouragement at
