Randy Houston

d. December 11, 2012

Omaha, Nebraska

Randy Jerome Houston was born January 24, 1967, to Richard and Jean (Brummer) Houston in Denison, Iowa. He was raised in Dunlap and graduated from Dunlap High School in 1985. He then attended Creighton University and graduated from there in 1990 and started his career in sales. On October 9, 1993, Randy married Tari Blankenfeld in Omaha, Nebraska. The couple was blessed with three sons.

Randy was baptized and confirmed at St. Patrick's Catholic Church in Dunlap. He was currently a member of St. Gerald's Catholic Church and the Knights of Columbus in Omaha. Randy enjoyed watching his boys in their sporting activities, but he particularly enjoyed coaching them. He also enjoyed watching Notre Dame and the Creighton Blue Jays. He enjoyed riding motorcycles, being a member of Boyer Rooters 4-H club and showing cattle. Randy thought his food always tasted better with Blue Cheese Dressing or hot sauce. Every year for Christmas Randy asked for a tie.

Randy died on Tuesday, December 11, 2012, at his home in Omaha, Nebraska at the age of 45 years, 10 months, and 17 days.

Randy was preceded in death by his grandparents, Pete and Grace Brummer and Gerald and Muriel Houston and his uncle, Jerry Brummer.
