Randy Lee Schroeder

Auburn, Michigan


Randy lost his battle with cancer at the Toni & Trish House in Auburn on Thursday morning August 3, 2017. In 1993 he met the love of his life and

best friend Holly Phillips (Hankish) whom he married on July 11, 2003.

Randy was predeceased by his parents Walter and Edna (Leinberger)

Schroeder as well as his step-daughter; Tiffani Phillips. Surviving besides

his wife Holly are his parents in-law; Robert and Vera Hankish and

Shirley Rutherford, his brother; in-laws; Robert (Jennifer) Hankish, Tracy

Hankish (Kristine Kennedy), Tim (Sheri) Hankish, Joe (Tanya) Hankish,

Mike Hankish (Christine Rutzen), William Hankish, Warren Hankish,

(Stephanie Lynn) and a sister in-law; Tammy (Scott) Richards. Also

surviving are a very special friend; John Duranczyk and Randy and

Holly’s fur baby Nitro along with many cousins and his aunt Norma

Hoeppner. Randy was a man of many talents, but was known for his

“expertise” as a machinist. He enjoyed working on his “67” El Camino,

 in the past few months some very special friends worked on it so he

could hear it run, sadly that never happened. His dream will be accom-

plished one day. He was an avid fan of NHRA drag racing and enjoyed

working in his machine shop making pool cues, playing pool and golfing.

Whatever Randy did, his desire for perfectionism went into it. Holly would

like to thank the staff of 3 East (Oncology) at McLaren Bay Region for their

compassion and care during Randy’s stays there, as well as the staff at Toni

& Trish House (Auburn) for the care and comfort he received during Randy’s

last two days.
