Randy Lake was born Oct. 10, 1961, to parents Lorraine Melby and Lou Watson in California.

His mother then married James Lake when Randy was 4 years old.

Randy went to ride in the sky Saturday, June 20, 2020.

Randy worked as a counselor for several years in California, and later became a yard foreman at Knecht Home Center of Gillette the last 11 years.

Randy loved to go fishing, play bass guitar and ride motorcycles. He was a bass player legend and played in a couple of bands in Gillette.

Randy’s greatest passion was having his knees in the breeze with his fellow brothers and sisters, whether it be at a benefit, poker run or even just around town.

He could put a smile on anyone’s face no matter the circumstances. Randy was loved by many and touched a lot of hearts. He will truly be missed by anyone who was graced with his presence.

Randy is survived by his father, James Lake of California; sister, Loronda Carver Schuler of Minnesota; brother, Bradley Carver of Australia; and many nieces, nephews and cousins.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Lorraine (Melby) Lake; and his grandparents on both sides.

There will be a celebration of life at a later date. An “In Memory of Randy Lake Fund” has been established at Campco Federal Credit Union.

This paid obituary was provided by family and friends.
