Randall D. “Randy” Levins

Randall D. “Randy” Levins, age 63, of Dubuque, IA, completed his earthly journey on Nov. 24, 2021, at MercyOne in Dubuque.  To honor Randy’s life, a private family service is being held.  Burial will be in the Dunleith Cemetery in East Dubuque, IL, at a later date.  The Tri-State Cremation Center is humbly serving Randy’s family.


Randy was born on March 24, 1958, in Dubuque, IA, a son to Delbert and Zona (Jamison) Levins.  After high school, Randy began his career with the Dubuque Packing Company.  He loyally put in over 20 years there until the Pack was closed for the final time.  Randy began working at the John Deere Dubuque Works moving forward and spent the remainder of his years there.  When Randy wasn’t punching in and out at work, he enjoyed perfecting his carpentry skills whenever possible.  Many projects remain where the countless hours he invested can still be witnessed by all to see today.  Randy was also a lover of animals, especially his favorite canine companion, Bruno, and was an avid Dallas Cowboys fan who never missed a game and always stood by his team.  It’s beyond difficult to imagine that we’re going to have to face the rest of our days without his caring heart and delightful sense of humor in our lives again.  Thankfully, he leaves behind an abundance of memories which will help to ease our pain in time, but for now, we’ll simply seek peace in the knowledge that Randy is home in heaven with his family who’ve gone before him, while they all get to enjoy the eternal love and grace of our Lord and Savior until we join them eventually.  Thank you, Randy, for reminding us not to take this life to seriously all the time and for always knowing just what to say as the moments arrived.  We love and miss you very much!
