Randy Routt Obituary

EAST PEORIA - Randy Dean Routt, 54, of Springfield Road in East Peoria passed away and made a peaceful journey home on Friday, March 14, 2014, surrounded by many family members.

He was a gentle spirit and a loving husband and father.

He was born Sept. 30, 1959, in Peoria to Albert Kenneth and Virginia Pearl Bohm Routt. He married Lindy Chambers on March 14, 1981, and again on Oct. 1, 1999. She survives.

He was preceded in death by his parents and sister, Diane Routt Pierson.

Left to cherish his memory are his wife, Lindy Chambers Routt; son, Mathew Steven Allen Routt of East Peoria; sister, Linda (Bob) Watts of East Peoria; brothers, Steven (Juanita) Routt of Peoria and Roger (Wanda) Routt of East Peoria; many loving nieces and nephews; and his mother-in-law, Beverly Engle Chambers of Bartonville.

Randy last worked at Archer Daniel Midland in Peoria, leaving in 2001.

He loved the great outdoors and camping trips; enjoyed wildlife and, in his younger years, fishing with his brothers and cousin, Gary; and spending holidays with family. He was very fond of the music of the Eagles and Peoria native Dan Fogelberg. He was a great fan of Westerns, especially "Jeremiah Johnson," "Last of the Dogmen" and "Dances with Wolves." He is undoubtedly admiring the frontier from up high, taking in a Packers game and watching Jimmy Johnson #48 win yet another NASCAR championship.

Randy will be deeply missed by his immediate family, as well as his extensive family of in-laws.

Cremation has been accorded and inurnment will follow at a later date. Services will be held at St. Ann Catholic Church, 1010 S. Louisa St., in Peoria at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, March 19, 2014, with visitation one hour before the service. Fr. Terry Cassidy will officiate. Fellowship will follow at the Parish Hall, immediately following services. A celebration of Randy's life will be held at Fondulac Park in East Peoria with family and friends at a later date.

Memorials may be made to the OSF Richard L. Owens Hospice Home in Peoria in his name.

The Cremation Society of Mid-Illinois Co. Pekin/Peoria is assisting the family with arrangements.
