Randy Huggins died Thursday, Feb. 10 at his home, surrounded by close family and friends.

He was born in Modesto, to Jimmie and Freda Huggins. He was raised and attended school in Ceres. He was a resident of Riverbank for the past 10 years.

Mr. Huggins became involved in real estate shortly after high school and became one of the youngest brokers in the area, by age 25. He remained tied to his first passion, with Big R Real Estate, while opening Big R Ranch Supply, on Crows Landing Road. Upon closing the store, he became a motivational speaker, which allowed him to travel extensively before settling down and raising a family in Phoenix, AZ.

He was a visionary and pursued his lifelong dream of a dude ranch, Canyon Creek located in Phoenix. He eventually sold the ranch and moved back to California to be closer to his family and friends. He always had a deal in the making and was fortunate to be surrounded by supportive people in his life.

He enjoyed entertaining people and would frequently play the spoons. He loved camping, fishing, hunting, boating, dancing, and embracing his Native American heritage. He was also a member of ECV #58.

He is survived by his son, Randy (April) Huggins, Jr.; daughters, Tina (Ron) Waggoner, Angela (Garry) Hukill; mother, Freda Huggins; brother, Doug (Debbie) Huggins; four grandchildren; several nieces and nephews; and his companion, Cathy Turman of Riverbank.

He was preceded in death by his daughter, Jennifer Huggins; father, Jimmie Huggins; and sisters, Diana Chaulet and Paulet Huggins.

A funeral was held Feb. 17 at Ceres Cemetery. A celebration of life followed in Riverbank.
