Randy T. Horst, 48, of Sioux Falls, passed away peacefully Sunday, December 6, 2015, at Sanford Hospital surrounded by family and friends.

Randy was born to Sharon (Pietz) and Roger Horst and grew up in Rockford, IL through 8th grade. His family moved to Bonesteel, SD when he was a freshman in high school, and after graduating, he attended Huron College. He then lived and worked as a machinist in Sioux Falls, Yankton, and Mitchell before moving to Moline, IL in 1990. In 1990 he married Sandy Baker, and in 1991 they moved to Sioux Falls to be closer to family. Randy then worked as an apprentice plumber, machinist, and stay-at-home dad.

Randy enjoyed golfing, playing volleyball, hunting, boating, coaching his son in baseball and basketball, going to his son's baseball, football and basketball games, track meets, and spending time at the lake with friends and family. Randy was a social, out-going person who loved sports and was always willing to help people, and in that spirit, through his death he will help others through the gift of organ and tissue donation.

He is survived by his wife Sandy Horst, their son Michael, a sister Pam (Jerry) Hemmer of Yankton, SD, grandfather Vilmer Pietz of Wagner, SD, his beloved black lab Gretchen, and the not-so-beloved grumpy kitty Mittens. He was preceded in death by his parents, Sharon (Pietz) and Roger Horst.
