Mr. Randy Stauffer, known to many as the “Guitar Man”, passed peacefully onto his next journey on Tuesday, May 18, 2021 surrounded by family. Randy was a lover of music and was known for sharing his musical talents to bring joy to those in his community. Whether it was Senior Sing-a-longs, coffee shops, small taverns or just in his own backyard. He hosted the Buttwheat Music Jam for several years inviting all musicians, or just music fans, to his home for the weekend long event. His “music room” was always a favorite spot not only for himself but for all the young visitors as well. His greatest pride was and always will be his family though. He was a wonderful Husband, Father, Grandfather and Great-Grandfather and just “Dad” or “Grandpa” to so many others as they were growing up. Randy led by example and set the standard high for what a good family man should be. He made everyone feel welcome and like family. He always had an ear to listen, a shoulder to cry on, an opinion to give (sometimes whether you wanted it or not), and a big hug that left you feeling truly cared about. Randy spent the past 40 years married to the love of his life, Gloria. Together they have had many great adventures. They most recently enjoyed being “Snow Birds” spending the cold Michigan winters in Florida where he could play his music on the beach and eat freshly caught fish and shrimp. Besides his wife, Randy leaves behind his children, Jason (Teresa) Stauffer, Jaimee (Anthony) Mize, Star (Jeff) Koning and Sherry (Anthony) Quick; grandchildren, Hailey, Zoe, Kaylee, Miranda, Heather, Dillon, Kelan, Kelsey and David as well as 7 great-grandchildren and another on the way. Also surviving are his brother and best friend, Dusty Stauffer; brother, Greg Stauffer and sister, Patricia (Randy) Kreple. He was proceeded in passing by his mother, Marian Trumbull Larsen and grandson, Dalton James Gustinis. As Randy wished cremation has taken place and a memorial service full of love, laughter and music will be held at the family home at a later date.
