Charles "Randy" Ortega

October 11, 1960

August 28, 2021

We cannot know the true height of a tree until it has been cut down nor the measure of a man's life until it is over. As we prepare to celebrate the life of Charles Randall Ortega, we are reminded that Randy was Tall Timber. His abundant branches spread wide and the light that shone through the rich leaves of his servant's heart were golden. With roots planted deep in the love of God, we believe he stepped into the presence of Our Lord and Savior on August 28, 2021, with gladness.

A Celebration of Life will be held at the Country Club in Belle Fourche, SD on October 2, 2021, at 2:00 pm. Complete obituary can be viewed at
Published by The Gazette from Sep. 20 to Sep. 26, 2021.

We loved Randy. Randy would come almost every Thursday to give my son a massage. My son has down syndrome and always looked forward to seeing Randy. When Randy would start the massage, I heard a lot of laughter. I could tell that Justin (my Son) was thoroughly have a great time. However, after a while, things would calm down and of course Justin got very relaxed and would often times fall to sleep. One time before Covid hit, Randy even took Justin for a pedicure and they had a fantastic afternoon together. When Justin found out that Randy would no longer be coming, he said that he would never be able to find anyone as good as Randy. Our whole family misses Randy. He was a very personable person who had a great deal of faith in God. He was very close to his family. He often talked about the things that they would do together. We are heart sick about losing Randy. But, hopefully, we'll meet him again on the other side.

To Randy's family - I remember Randy as a teenager. Always smiling. I remember when Dad was so sick 6 years ago. Randy would give such wonderful relief from his pain! What a gifted man. Full of love, fun and kindness. He and I cared a lot for many of the same people and I know that they all have similar memories - because that's who Randy was. I'm grateful for those memories and pray that the ones you have of Randy will lighten the darkness his passing has caused. God bless you all.
