Randall (Randy) Wind, 73, of Ormond Beach, Florida, died peacefully surrounded by loved ones at his home Friday, March 1, 2024. He was known for his magnetic personality and witty sense of humor.

Randy was born December 12, 1950, in Flushing, Queens, to Mickey and Betti Wind and relocated to rural Northeast Pennsylvania during his high school years.

He was a talented athlete and sportsman who participated in recreational baseball, football, bowling, golf and other sports leagues. He also enjoyed hunting and was a gun enthusiast.

Randy attended West Chester University and then worked for Proctor & Gamble at the Northeast Pennsylvania plant, where he worked for nearly three decades and held a variety of manufacturing, training and leadership roles.

He later moved to Ormond Beach, Florida, in 1998 to be near his elderly parents. There, he earned a certification from Daytona State College in the refrigeration and heating program with recognition of outstanding merit and accomplishment.

His hobbies included playing acoustic guitar, target shooting, motorcycle riding, chip carving, completing crossword puzzles and reading.  He took pleasure in watching sports — particularly his favorite team since childhood the New York Mets — while puffing on cigars.

Randy is survived by his beloved wife of 33 years, Leslie; children Rebecca Wind-Samu and her husband Brian of Vincentown, New Jersey; Ben Wind and his wife Pamela of Windsor, Pennsylvania;  Jennifer Wind of Ormond Beach, Florida; Kyle Wind and his wife Allyson of Dickson City, Pennsylvania;  Thadius Wind of Bangor, Maine; six grandchildren; many cousins, extended family and friends; and his black lab Maggie.

Arrangements by Baldwin Brothers Funeral and Cremation Society.  At his request, there will be no memorial service.  In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the National Rifle Association, of which he was a lifetime member.

    I first met Randy in 11th grade at Elk Lake HS on the first day of school in 1966. We were both new transfers and the "new kids" so we bonded quickly. He sat behind me in Mr. Miller's American History class. He had a wonderful sense of humor and was one of the kindest and nicest people I have ever known. It was never quiet or boring when Randy was around. I still remember the summer that he used a cigarette lighter to see if he had gotten all the gad out of a gas can. Enough fumes were left that the can exploded and burned off his eye brows and an inch on the front of his hair. Luckily no harm to his eyes or major damage to his skin. I will never forget him and the times we spent together.

    I met Randy in 1966 when we both arrived at Elk Lake HS for the first time. He sat behind me in Mr Miller’s American history class and we became good friends. He was shears the “Big Kahouna”. What a great sense of humor and always the life of the party. I will never forget him.
