Randy Dale Wydner
AVOCA- Randy Dale Wydner of Avoca, NY born April 29, 1960 in Bath, NY passed away November 2, 2021. Throughout the years, he was employed at Mercury Aircraft and Walmart driving semi-truck, before he became an owner operator in 2007 and started his own business named P&R Trucking.
Randy enjoyed camping, boating, restoring cars, but most importantly he really enjoyed spending time with his family. When his children were younger, he loved taking his family on yearly vacations to Canada, where they would enjoy going out on the lake to fish and waterski. He was joined on those vacations by his parents and other family members. Randy adored his wife, Pamela, and always looked forward to family vacations, where he could spend more time with her without having to be away weeks at a time. Randy started to teach his grandsons, Brandon, Trent and Cooper how to work in the garage and also how to restore/paint vehicles. They spent several days helping their grandfather repaint his semi-truck and work on the engine. Randy also loved to sponsor his granddaughter, Gabby, softball teams while she was in youth Cinderella softball. He enjoyed attending all the grandkids games and never missed one if he was home from the road. In the past 4-5 years, he also enjoyed spending every Fourth of July at his daughter’s party with his whole family and his niece Amanda Hayward (Joe) and her two girls.
He is survived by his loving wife, Pamela Wydner (Ribble) of Avoca, NY; Daughters Heather Dickson (Erik) of Corning, NY and Jacqueline Shroyer (Thomas) of Bath, NY; Grandchildren Brandon Dickson, Trent Dickson, Gabrielle Shroyer, and Cooper Shroyer; Sister Dawn Ulmer (John) of Port Jervis, NY; Brother Frank L Wydner Jr. (Debbie) of Dillsburg, PA; Aunt Lillian Belanger (Reynold) of Avoca, NY; and many nieces and nephews.
He was predeceased by his Father, Frank L. Wydner, Sr.; Mother Donna A Wydner; Nephew Stephen Cooley; and Niece Tonia Wydner.

I loved my cousin Randy and the Wydner family. As his cousin I have fond memories of many fun occasions at Randyâ€™s parents house. Iâ€™m so sorry to hear he has passed and my condolences are with Dawn, Pam, and Their children and grandchildren. Love and Prayers
I will always remember how much Uncle Randy cared and loved every person in his family. I will miss you Uncle Randy.
Randy was a sweet boy when I had him in fourth grade. From reading his obituary, I can tell that great personality stayed with him for the next 52 years.
My condolences to his family.
Words cannot describe the joy we felt seeing Uncle Randy and the family every year. The thought of him always makes my heart happy, and we will miss him dearly. We will continue this tradition in his honor.
