Randy Marcott Obituary

Randy John Marcott passed away peacefully on February 14, 2024, at the age of 69 in his hometown of Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Born on March 29, 1954, Randy lived a full life of adventure, love, travel, and laughter alongside his tight knit family. He had a lot of fight in him, overcoming many challenges life threw his way, and made the most out of the years that he had.

Randy is survived by his loving wife Dawn Marcott, daughters Amanda Marcott (Rohit Dhume) and Ashley (Philippe) Fenouil, grandchild Marco Fenouil, sister Lynnda (Larry) Jankowski, sister-in-law Teri (Larry) Pfeil, brothers-in-law Dan (Tammy) and Eric (Mary) Anderson, and many loved nieces and nephews. Randy was preceded in death by his parents Donna Lund and John Marcott, stepfather Arnie Lund, and sister Kimmy Marcott.

Randy grew up in Eau Claire and can best be described as a loyal, feisty, adventurous, and gentle-hearted man who always wore a big smile on his face. In his childhood, he could often be found at the neighborhood ice rink with his sister (until he fell and hit his head on the ice so many times that the rink attendant told Lynnda she couldn’t bring him back anymore!), at his grandmas’ houses (who both lived on his same street), playing on the train tracks (jumping in train cars to get a free ride from one station to the next!), getting scrappy on the football field, and as he got older, frequenting the motocross track where he raced with his friends and exercised his inner daredevil. He also had a hitchhiker’s thumb—his most notorious trip was one with Eric Anderson from Wisconsin to Colorado. At the time, Dawn was the little sister admiring her brother’s handsome friend from behind the bushes, and when she heard about the trip, she gave her brother all her babysitting money to be sure that they made it home safe. Good thing it worked!

Randy was a hard-working man. He started bartending at the Oar House in Eau Claire where he made a lot of good friends, and good drinks. He then hitchhiked cross country again, this time to Utah to work in the mines before coming back to Eau Claire to work for Local Roofing, at the Menards Warehouse and then for many years at Amoco (now Pactiv) as a machine operator.

Throughout his life, Randy fostered a love for the outdoors. Hunting, fishing, and camping is where some of his most memorable stories came from—just ask anyone who’s been on a winter camping trip with him building quinzhees and telling stories around the fire and sleeping in sub-zero temperatures—except when the Packers were in the Super Bowl (and the camping crew, the “Northern Knights” hiked to the nearest bar to watch the game). He was a devoted fan with a robust Packers wardrobe and could frequently be heard saying in the fourth quarter “it ain’t over til it’s over!”. Randy loved local music, concerts, picnics, sunsets and traveling with his wife Dawn. They just packed up the oxygen concentrator and off they went. He was the poster child for not letting his oxygen use get in the way of living life to its fullest.

He was the best dad that his daughters could have asked for. He fostered their spirit for adventure, showed them a little bit of the wild side, taught them some street smarts, and always, always poured all his love into them. He was a great “girl dad” who wasn’t afraid to patiently brush through their hair with No More Tangles and put it up in “topsys”. Randy had a good text, wise quote (typically from Confucius), and series of emojis for every situation (even though he “didn’t like his smart phone aka his ‘communicator’”), and was always there to pick up the phone to talk about everything or nothing (his phone did not go unanswered—even if he had to step out of the shower to let you know he’d call you right back.

For the last year and a half, he wore the title “GrandPaw” very proudly. He was the absolute best grandpa and had a very special bond with “Cubbie”, his grandson Marco. Randy loved babies and babies loved Randy. Marco couldn’t hide that grandpa was his favorite guy in the room, and loved playing with his hat, oxygen hose, or just laughing at his silly faces and games.

Randy will be missed dearly but would want all his friends and family to find a balance with celebration amongst the sadness. He preferred smiles on our faces and dad jokes in the air—to which we often said, “Dad and your jokes…you got ‘em, we just don’t get ‘em!”.

Memorials can be made to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Wisconsin.
