Obituary for Randy J. Bialecki

Randy J. Bialecki, age 60, passed away Tuesday, September 1, 2015 at Ebeid Hospice Residence in Sylvania, OH. Randy was born February 5, 1955 in Toledo, OH to Robert and Camille Bialecki. A graduate of Bowsher High School, Randy received his Bachelor's Degree from the Ohio State University and his Master's Degree in Music from Eastern Michigan. He was passionate about his music and played in numerous bands around the Toledo area including the Mighty Meaty Swing Kings and Friar Tucks. Hewas also the director of the Polish American Concert Band (PAC Band). Randy began his career as Band Director at Central Catholic and later at Cardinal Stritch High School before taking a position as music teacher and band director for Dundee Schools where he and his students won several competitions. He then worked as a production supervisor at the General Motors Willow Run plant for ten years and was most recently a manager at Optimal LED. Randy was a longtime member of St. Patrick's of Heatherdowns Parish. Randy and Liz were well known for their famous Mexican parties that they hosted for years.
Randy had an appreciation for cars, especially old cars- his pride and joy was his 1967 SS Chevelle. He loved to cook, garden and craft. Randy was an avid bowler and softball player and won several softball tournaments with his team. His terrific sense of humor and sarcasm will be missed.
Randy is survived by his wife of 24 years, Elizabeth Hood Bialecki; children, Emily and Joseph Bialecki; mother, Camille Bialecki; several in-laws; and many nieces, nephews, and friends. He was preceded in death by his father, Robert Bialecki; sister, Lisa Terry; and brother, Tim Bialecki.
