He was a member of the Lions Club, Selinsgrove Moose Lodge #1173, and Mid-Penn Sportsmen’s Club, and was a Boy Scouts leader, Little League Coach, and Youth Fellowship Advisor.

Randy and Leona spent many weekends at their camper in Cedar Run entertaining friends and family. He loved the outdoors including hunting and fishing and just sitting by the camp fire.

Surviving in addition to his wife, are two daughters and sons-in-law, Lisa and Mike Snyder of Richfield, Lori and Bill Seebold of Middleburg; two step-daughters and step-sons-in-law, Sonia and John Barlow of Indiana, Shelly and Roger Sipp of Florida; one step-son and step-daughter-in-law, Shawn and Daphyne Ressler of Winfield; one sister and brother-in-law, Cindy and Michael Whalen of Catawissa; ten grandchildren, Michael Snyder, Jr. and his fiancé Marcella, Alyssa Snyder, Dylan Seebold and his fiancé Madison, Brianne Seebold, Maddison Barlow, Nicholas Barlow, Ryan Sipp, Kyle Sipp, Kassidy Ressler, and Bryce Ressler; and one great-granddaughter, Kinsley Seebold; as well as many nieces and nephews.
