"I'm Already There" Lonestar

On January 16, 2006, my life changed forever. I lost my best friend, my soul mate, my lover, my husband, my Randy. This is a tribute to a dear sweet man, the father of my children, the love of my life.

On the following pages, I share photos, music and thoughts, in the hopes that you too, will understand just a little more about the man behind "A Truckers Wife". I invite you to see what a wonderful man he was and how much he meant to us in the time we shared together.

Farewell my love, until we meet again, you will remain in my heart, for always.

Randall (Randy) Franklin Livingstone

August 15, 1962 – January 16, 2006

Memorial Service Monday, January 23


Sweet Randy, you will be in our hearts and souls forever. Our memories of you will bring smiles of joy and laughter until we meet again.
Love always,
Your friends and family


A life too short, but my, it was filled to the brim with the joy that Kelly and the kids brought to him.


Special thanks to
Pastor Mark Tombs

It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Randy, aged 43, on January 16, 2006. He will be deeply missed and lovingly remembered by his wife Kelly and their three children, who meant the world to him; Thomas Franklin, Amanda Jean and Samuel James. He was predeceased by his father John (Jack) (1998) and his mother Marjorie (2001). His memory will be cherished by sister Donna (George) Reimer and their children Sharlee (Jeremy) and Vincent; and brother Jim (Elaine) and their children Jonathan, Matthew and Benjamin of Calgary; grandmother Ellen Langthorne; father and mother in law, Robert and Beverley Zarowny and sister in law Cheryl (Thane) Stark and their children Samantha, Amber and Lance.
His pets Jake, Fred, Petunia and Skipper will miss him also.

Randy was born and raised in Winnipeg (North Kildonan). He and Kelly were married on May 19, 1990 and together they made their home in Elmwood raising and enjoying their young and growing family. From school activities to swimming and gymnastics, Randy was always such an important part of their young lives. He was so proud of his children and they will truly miss their Daddy.

Randy was always there if you needed anything. He had a heart of gold and you always knew where you stood with him. He would fight with every ounce of his being for the things that he truly believed in. He had a great sense of humor and you would never forget him once you met him. He will be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him in his all too short life.

Randy was a professional driver currently employed with Timmer Trucking/Arnold Bros. He loved the open road, but couldn’t wait to get home to his family. Trucking was his passion after several years of employment with the Wpg. School Div. #1. He started out on his final journey on Monday night when his life suddenly ended and his heavenly highway began. Keep on truckin’ Randy.

Our thanks to the Rosser Fire Dept., Paramedics and Seven Oaks Hospital staff who so valiantly tried to save his life.

Should anyone wish, a donation in Randy’s memory can be made to the Thomas, Amanda and Samuel Livingstone Trust at any Crosstown Credit Union, for his children or to a charity of ones choice.

To those whose lives he touched his memory will always remain.
Rest in peace until we meet again.


Randy was an inspiration to me, his philosophies were simple, and profound.
I hear his voice in my head... When your number is up, it's up, so live today...
Fight for what's right... and my most favorite of all... Shit happens!
He had a wonderful sense of humour, and was a man that you never forgot because of it.
He loved to complain, but made it funny, and for that I thank him.
I will have memories upon memories of laughter and smarty pants comments to look back on to make me smile.
He was a good man, with a giant size heart and a love for his children that I cannot even begin to explain.
Everything he did was for us.
From buying our home, to being away with work, so that his children could have their mother at home.
He gave us so much and asked for so little.
His life was cut short, for reasons I may never understand,
but that I accept, because that was what we believed.
Things happen for a reason he would say, and it'll all work out in the end.
I find that very hard to believe now, but in time, I may come to understand.
I have faith in that, because Randy did.
He was my strength and my rock, and will continue to be so in my heart and in my soul.
Never deny the opportunity to tell someone you love them,
to tell them how much they mean to you or
how much you appreciate them.
Randy and I did this, and now it gives me peace.
He knew we loved him, we told him every day, and he told us many times over.
To be loved is the greatest gift of all.


     I would like to Thank everyone who has touched our lives so immensely since Randy passed away. Our family and friends have helped us through this most difficult time more than they can ever imagine. The community spirit where we live, has been absolutely amazing, and the help and support from our neighbors has shown me what true community is all about. My children's school staff and parents have been so very supportive and helpful, and for this I am so grateful. My children will always be my main concern and knowing that they are somewhere filled with such caring people, gives me peace of mind. Last, but certainly not least, the online community here at ATruckersWife has been such a great source of comfort and support. I do not know where I would be today without all the cyber hugs, phone calls, cards and more that I have received from all of them.

My heart will ache, my eyes will cry, but I know that I am never alone.
Thank you all again.
