Wozniak, Randy John

It is with heavy hearts that the family of Randy Wozniak announces his sudden passing on Saturday March 20th, 2021, at the age of 59. Randy was a loving Husband, Son, Brother, Stepdad, Grandpa, and Uncle who could always put a smile on your face with his witty remarks and quirky creations.

Randy will be forever loved and missed by his soul mate and best friend Joyce, who he loved immensely and whole-heartedly. He will be greatly missed by his cherished Mom Vangie Moody and sister Cindy Lavallee (Larry) as well as his niece and nephew Laura (Josh) and Marc, daughters Jocelyn, Janelle, and Karla (Jenn), and grandchildren Aliya and Finn. Along with many aunts, uncles and cousins, especially Connie and Breanne. Also Joyce’s family: Mother-In-Law Margaret Paget, Rod and Diane Paget, Glen and Debbie Paget, Earl and Hanne Paget, and their families; as well as his special neighbors and friends.

Randy was predeceased by his Dad, Anton Wozniak, Sister, Connie Wozniak, and Stepfather Dwight Moody.

Randy had a rewarding 23-year career in IT Client Services alongside many wonderful people at Correctional Service Canada. He started his career at RHQ Saskatoon before transferring to the Edmonton Institution, and then most recently the AB/NWT District Parole and Grierson.

Randy embraced life and lived it to the fullest. He enjoyed spending time with his family, playing with his grandchildren, traveling, camping, bike riding, playing piano, and doing projects around the house. He loved watching and playing Jeopardy with Joyce, doing cross-words, listening to his music and watching old movies.

He could take the simplest thing and turn it into a treasure. His family will always appreciate the many special keepsakes he made us and the way he kept us all organized.

Randy will be missed beyond measure. He lifted the spirits of everyone with his positive attitude and no one took on the challenges life threw at him with more determination and grace. He will be remembered for his ability to crack a joke at any given moment, and his unwavering love for those he was closest to.

A celebration of his life will take place when restrictions allow.

Memorial donations in memory of Randy can be made to the University Hospital Foundation – Mazankowski Alberta Heart Institute.

“Those we love never truly leave us. There are things that death cannot touch.”

John Morrison

Good day from New Zealand, and my sincere apologies for this late note as I’ve just found out about Randy’s passing.
Randy and I worked together in our 20’s at what was then the Edmonton Hilton. We often did the night shift at the front desk…30 years ago now.
He was a character, always good for a laugh, a kind man and a gentle soul. I spent time with him during the sad events around the passing of his father.
We lost touch when I moved west and then to NZ , in those days there was no Facebook, and I’m not much of a letter writer. I’ve never forgotten Randy and I never will.

Linda Stollings

To Karla, your Mom and extended family,

I’m so very sorry for your loss. Truly hope you can find some comfort in special memories.

Sincerest condolences,

Kristi Glover

I met Randy through work decades ago in Saskatoon. Randy and I even bowled together on a team for a year. I was sad when he moved away but we kept in touch through email once or twice per year. I am so sorry he was taken so soon. Sending thoughts and prayers to his loved ones.


This news brings great sadness, Randy was a brother and best friend for many years. My deepest sympathy to his family and friends.

Robert Rosica

I was hired by Randy during his time at Edmonton Parole. While our time working together was brief, I owe him so much; he was a great mentor, and I will never forget him.

Brett Tinkler

Randy was a great friend. He was always ready to lend a hand when called on and usually had a story for every situation. I was ensured of an interesting exchange when we talked and if you didn’t listen close, you might miss his subtle sarcasm and wit. He was a huge resource for me with all his experience on the job and I looked to emulate some of his work habits and processes. I especially enjoyed his stories of some of the many trips he had taken with Joyce. .missing him terribly,
Rest in piece Randy..

Al Dunbar

I had the privilege of working with Randy at Edmonton Institution. He did quality work and was very helpful to and supportive of other staff.

I always valued his input. When he started a comment with the word “listen” I knew immediately that it would be something worth listening to.

I’ll miss the occasional lunch with him and the others I worked with before retiring. But most of all I feel devastated for his family who have lost him way too early.

Joyce, so sorry for the loss of your partner. Thinking of you at this time. Be well.
