Randal Reichel Obituary

In Loving Memory of Randal Terrance Reichel

October 26, 2023, marked a day of sadness as we bid farewell to Randal Terrance Reichel, a beloved husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend. Randy passed away in Westlock, Alberta, at the age of 72, with a lifetime of cherished memories.

Randy leaves behind his loving wife of over 20 years, Barbara Johnson-Reichel, who he loved deeply. With her he built an amazing home that was enjoyed by his friends, family, and especially his fourteen grandchildren and one great grandchild. He is survived by his dear children, Julie (Mike) Gottselig, Jae (Faith) Reichel, Neil (Justina) Reichel, Katherine (Oliver) Reichel, Rachel (Duncan) Reichel, and his stepchildren Jesse (Elise) Coleman, and Caitlin Coleman. He is also survived by his brother Gordon (Judy) Reichel, and his sister Joan Mang. He will be joining his beloved son Colin Reichel and his father and mother, Walter, and Hedwig Reichel.

There was no one quite like Randy - he had an unparalleled charm that captivated all who had the pleasure of meeting him. He’d walk into a room and fill it with laughter and music. He could regale people with stories from his travels around the world. He could fix and build anything. He was a gifted performer and touched the hearts of many with his beautiful voice and lively karaoke performances. He was an incredible salesman, most recently for Webb’s Machinery, known for his charisma and passion which he used to tirelessly serve farmers in the area. He was a proud member of the Westlock Legion, where he found camaraderie and friendship. He was larger than life and will be missed dearly by everyone who knew him.

A Celebration of Life to honor and remember Randy will be held on November 9, 2023, at 2:00 PM at the Westlock Funeral Home, located at 10004-105 Street, Westlock, Alberta. Following the service, the family invites you for lunch at the Royal Canadian Legion in Westlock at 3:00 PM.

A second celebration of Randy's life will take place in Edenwold, Saskatchewan, the place of his birth, in the spring of 2024, to pay tribute to his roots and the life he lived.
