Randell Paul Burgess, 58, passed away Saturday, August 12, 2017. \n\nRandy was born in Dearborn, Michigan May 20, 1959 to Ruth Ellen Burgess and Roy Monroe Burgess.

He is preceded in death by his mother Ruth Burgess and sister-in-law Kami Burgess.\n\nThe youngest of four boys, Randy was always ready for the next new adventure in life and the exciting possibilities it might hold. A graduate of Edsel Ford High School in Dearborn, Michigan, Randy stayed in touch with his fellow classmates and enjoyed attending many class reunions. Randy went on to earn his Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Michigan.\n\nToward the end of his college education, while working at MASCO Corporation/\n\nDelta Faucet Division in Indianapolis, he met the love of his life, Tammi Sue Tibbott. Shortly after their wedding Randy was offered a position in Engineering for Hughes Aircraft (Raytheon) in Tucson, Arizona.\n\nRandy was a very intelligent man, and found excitement in seeking new knowledge. In addition to working full-time and being an amazing father, Randy managed to find time to obtain his Master's degree in Systems Engineering from the University of Arizona.\n\nAlways primed for the next adventure, Randy was an avid snow skier, and hiker. He loved music, cars, and traveling. From a romantic luau in Maui, to riding bicycles in San Diego, hiking in Telluride, zip lining in Costa Rica, to sipping a beer at Octoberfest in Germany or in the spa at home, friends and family were always welcome. Randy had a magnetic personality, and after only a few minutes together at a restaurant or bar, strangers would quickly become friends, charmed by Randy's charismatic and sometimes goofy ways.\n\nNever a dull moment, with a zest for living we should all strive to achieve, Randy was passionate about life and all it had to offer. Planning for the future but living in the moment, that was Randy's way of looking at life. He was a man that loved his family and his friends unconditionally.
