Randal Mick

Randal (Randy) Howard Mick passed on from this life Sept. 26, 2020, at the age of 64.
Randy was born in Toledo, on Thanksgiving Day Nov. 24, 1955, to Darrel (Jack) and Claribel (Jinx) Mick. Sycamore became his new home when the family relocated several years later.
Growing up in Sycamore, Randy was active in Boy Scouts, had a paper route, loved fishing, model cars, Soap Box Derby and spending time with his friends.  He had a “very special” friend – his beloved dog Patches who was with him to adulthood. Jeff Robe – a cousin – fondly remembers, “…one time we hit the jackpot with the pop machine on Main Street in Sycamore.  Randy and I went down to get some drinks and we discovered the machine was giving out pop without needing any money. I think we came back with as many as we could hold after we drank our fill by the machine.”
Randy graduated from Mohawk High School where he was on the wrestling team and attended Ohio State University. He joined his father working at Mick Insurance Agency which he later acquired.
Randy was a member of Sycamore Area Businessmen’s Association, charter member of Mohawk Jaycees and bowled many years with their league. He also was a Son of American Legion Post #250 and served on Sycamore Volunteer Fire and EMS. Randy had a gift for observing and appreciating life and nature. That appreciation made him an excellent photographer and he was often seen with camera in hand – a passion that was shared by his father and uncle Howard Mick.
Left to cherish his memory are his daughter Erica Mick; grandsons, Callan, Bret, Ronan and Malek; his sister, Jennifer (Mick) Joniec and husband George Joniec; nieces, Meghan and Margot; nephew, Graham; and great-niece, Luca Kowalewski.
Visitation will be held from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 24, at Walton-Moore Funeral Home, Sycamore. A funeral service will be held at 1 p.m. the same day at the funeral home. Due to COVID-19, masks will be required. Randy will be laid to rest at Pleasant View Cemetery in Sycamore next to his parents.
