Randall "Randy" Charles Rairigh, aka "Stretch", "Tinner", died unexpectedly on June 24, 2014, in Pensacola, Florida. He was born June 28, 1955 to Vivian and Marjory Rairigh. He was a 1973 graduate of Lakewood Schools (Lake Odessa). He worked for E. W. Bliss in Hastings before moving on to GM in Lansing. He studied at Lansing Community College while working for GM and got his Journeyman's Card as a tinsmith. When Plant 2 closed, he moved to Kansas City to finish out his 30 years with GM before retiring. After retiring, he and his wife, Sue, moved to Pensacola, Florida. Randy always needed to be busy, and he loved a challenge, he began working as a handyman, becoming well respected in that area for his excellent craftsmanship in custom cabinetry and home remodeling. He was doing what he loved to do the day he passed away.
