Obituary

Randall Gale Fennig, 67, died in his home on the 11th of November, 2021.  

 

He is survived by his wife, Toni; three children, Jesse, Kathryn (Richard), and David; one granddaughter, Lydia; two brothers, Barry (Pamela) and Stephen (Terry), as well as a number of nieces, nephews, their spouses, great nieces and nephews, and many beloved friends.  

 

He farmed at many points throughout his life and loved it.  He especially loved the family farm that he grew up on in Bryant, Indiana and returned to in his last decade of life to farm with his brothers.  

 

However, his deepest vocation was to be a pastor.  He served in that role both in the United States and in Africa, where he was a missionary for many years with his wife Toni.  He had treasured friendships in the United States, Portugal, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, and Sierra Leone.  He was patient and gentle.  Over and over again throughout his life, people told him everything about themselves, sensing his profound empathy and trustworthiness.

 

But as beloved as he was by the people who knew him, the one that he loved most was Christ.  He was a lifelong student of the Bible, a lifelong teacher at multiple parishes, and a mentor to many young people whom he helped along with utter humility and with joy.  Randy would have counted as the greatest of his accomplishments that there were many people who saw Christ more clearly because of him.

 

Visitation for family and friends will be held from 4:00pm-7:00pm Monday in the Williamson-Spencer and Penrod Funeral Home in Portland.  

 

Funeral services will be held at 11:00am Tuesday at the Westchester United Methodist Church, 4487 E. 400 N. Portland, Indiana.
