Randall August Gottus

Age 69, of Kennedy Twp., passed unexpectedly on Thursday, January 4, 2018.

Father of Christopher R. (Wendy) Gottus and Timothy E. (Melissa) Gottus; dear grandfather of Ethan, Nadia, Colin and Elijah; brother of Regis and Gerald Gottus, Sandra Krawczynsi, James Gottuso and Linda Daum.

Family and friends received SUNDAY at the McDERMOTT FUNERAL HOME, INC., 334 Forest Grove Rd., Kennedy Twp.,  from 2:00 PM until the time of service at 4:00 PM.

Randy attained a Masters of Psychology and minored in music.  He was characterized by a keen intellect, “unique” sense of humor, compassion for the mental and emotional needs of others, an inclination to work with his hands, and a down-to-earth, simplistic approach to daily life.  His career was spent helping countless others in the Psychology field.  His retirement years were spent with hobbies that included real estate and volunteering counseling services in church-led groups.

I will forever remember sharing donuts and coffee at Giant Eagle, helping you with your McKees Rock's properties, many wonderful hikes through your Slippery Rock properties, hamburgers at McDonalds's after a day of hiking, and our wonderful dances in Greentree Singles and the Presbyterian Church in North Pgh. After we parted, you spoke of playing piano at senior retirement centers. My last contact with you was in August , 2018 to tell you of my son's passing. Next thing I knew, you were gone, also.
You were so special to me..so many great times...you even gave a car to one of my children. Rest in peace, Randy. Look after my son; until we meet again . Linda
