He volunteered each year at the Color Cruise Island Festival in Grand Ledge with the fur traders, was a member of the Looking Glass River Sportsmen Club, and rendezvous group of close friends referred to as the Brothers of the Wind. Randd was known by many children in the area as Santa Claus. He loved children and looked forward to the fun and joy he could bring to the young people during Christmas. His niece, Jordan, said it best; Uncle (Santa) Randd was able to do around the holidays was much more than dressing up in simple Santa outfit. It was about his sense of community and family. It was about homeless pets and hopeful children and his great-nieces that adored him. It was about giving back in a way that most people never choose to do. He is survived by wife of over 27 years, Katie; children, Trisha L. Miller and Randy L. (Jamie); his best buddy, Reggie; grandchildren, Alicia Schmitz and Zoey, Nevaeh, and Marcus Miller; siblings, Rodney Mahaffey, Brian (Wanda) Miller and Brent Miller; several nieces and nephews along with some in-laws and out-laws, very special friends Riley and Gla’ Spayde and John and Carol Weigel.
