Randy Joe Rhonemus

We are saddened to announce the passing of our Beloved Husband, Father, Grandfather, Son, Brother, Uncle, Cousin and Friend.

Randy astounded the Mayo’s medical community with his Strength, his Bravery and his Determination and positive attitude. Cancer DID NOT win ….Complications from medications prescribed on an ER visit caused his untimely passing.

Randy passed away peacefully at his Florida home with his wife of 43 years by his side.

Randy was an avid Fisherman, outdoorsman, gardener, a builder and a Jack of all trades. He was a storyteller,  He loved being around nature and was always on the water when ever given the chance. He enjoyed spending time with his family and teaching his Grandchildren how to grow their own gardens, how to Fish and how to cheat at cards. LOL

He enjoyed History, a good Debate, He loved Jesus, his country and was baptized by Phil Robertson. Randy loved BIG and if you were lucky enough to be one of the few he allowed to be part of his life, I would consider yourself blessed. ❤

Randy has left behind a beautiful legacy- he is survived by his Wife Vicki “Rinea” of 43 plus years, his Beautiful daughters, Beth Manis - Indiana, Jennifer Simmons - Florida. Four adorable grandchildren, Lyric Manis, Isaac Manis both from Indiana and Alexander Simmons, Chloe Simmons of Florida, His Mother Deloris “Jeannie” Lynch (Robert Ed Lynch - husband) of Florida, Brothers - Richard “Rick “Rhonemus (Sherri Spay) of Indiana, Rodney Rhonemus of Florida, Russell Rhonemus of Florida. Brothers in law, Lonny Whitaker (Sandy Whitaker - wife) of Indiana and Paul Whitaker of Indiana and Several nieces, nephews and cousins.

He’s preceded in death by his father Marvin J Rhonemus, both Grandparents, Arthur and Lois Rhonemus, Virgil and Arletta Hill, His Mother in law Shirley Evans, His Sister in law Karen Cox, Brothers in law Mark Whitaker, Troy Whitaker, And his baby boy Christopher Joe who was taken from us before birth. 

The family would like to Thank the Doctors and nursing staff at Mayo Clinic - Jacksonville Florida. A very special thank you to Dr Jason Starr, Natasha Wylie, Dr Richard Taylor and the entire Oncology - Radiology team. Also a special thank you to Halifax Health Hospice care team Daytona Beach Florida and Heritage Funeral home Palm Coast Florida for their kindness and compassion during this truly difficult time.
