Randy Schwartz (68) of Arvada, Colorado, passed into eternity on Tuesday, April 6, 2021. He was born in Denver, Colorado on September 11, 1952 to Clarence and Hazel Schwartz (Comer). Both of his parents were already in Heaven waiting for his arrival when he passed away. Randy was the middle child and is survived by his older brother, Dennis, who he talked to on the phone every week. His younger brother, Kevin, preceded him in death. Randy had a great childhood growing up in the Arvada area. There were plenty of stories of Randy as a kid with his brothers and cousins and all of their childhood adventures. He always told us the story of getting shot in the leg as a kid after an intense game of monopoly. He attended and graduated from Arvada High School. Randy had stories from all of the different jobs he had including working as a dish washer, registration attendant at Rose Hospital, driving a meat truck, various summer jobs throughout the Colorado mountains, and doing metal work in Golden. In his 20s, every morning Randy and his co-workers would stop by the Coco’s Bakery Restaurant in Lakewood for breakfast. It was there that he met a cute little waitress named Anita. They fell in love and were married on February 14, 1982 at Beth Eden Baptist Church. After getting married, they lived in WheatRidge where Randy worked as a plumber and Anita had a variety of secretarial jobs. In June of 1983, Zachariah was born. It was then they decided to combine their jobs and started RAZ Service and Repair. Randy would be self-employed and provide plumbing and lawn services, and Anita would stay at home with their kids and do all of his secretarial work. Rachel was born in March of 1985, and they decided to purchase their forever home in Arvada. Adam came along in July of 1988. Randy, Anita, and the kids lived happy lives with memories full of family vacations, camping, sporting events, and lots of family and friends. A lot of vacations were spent in Glenwood Springs at the Hot Springs tossing the kids into the pool and teaching them to dive. The kids went to Maranatha Christian Center for school, and the family attended church there also. Randy enjoyed spending time with his family, the Denver Broncos, fishing, playing cards, and watching TV and movies. Randy and Anita continued to run RAZ together for almost 40 years. Adam married Nicole in 2009. They have two little boys, Jaxson and Javan. They loved their “Papa” and will miss him very much. Randy and Anita enjoyed their older years by doing some traveling, sometimes to California and also to Florida to visit the grandkids. We have fond memories from our trips to Disneyland and several beaches throughout Florida.
Most people know he was diagnosed with cancer this past August. He did six rounds of chemo and had a good report from the doctors in December. However, in mid-March the cancer returned and his health began to decline rapidly. He was such a fighter but started having some severe complications towards the end of March which lead to his death. Randy believed that Christ died on the cross to save him from his sins. We know that Randy is in Heaven rejoicing with Jesus and reunited with loved ones who have gone before him. We are confident that we will see him again one day!!
Randy will always be remembered as a kind, generous, and giving man. He was a wonderful husband, father, and grandfather. He had a memorable laugh and loved to talk to people. Randy has known and helped countless customers from his almost 40 years of plumbing with RAZ. He will be remembered by lots of extended family on both his side and Anita’s. He also had lots of friends from Maranatha, Front Range Baptist Church, and Tri-City Baptist Church. He is preceded in death by his parents, Clarence and Hazel; and Anita’s parents, Dean and Bev. He will be remembered by his brother Dennis (72) of Delta, Colorado. He is preceded in death by his brother Kevin and sister-in-law Becky. He leaves behind his wonderful wife, Anita (65); and his three children Zachariah (37), Rachel (36), and Adam (32) and daughter-in-law Nicole (31). He also leaves behind his grandchildren, Jaxson (6) and Javan (4). And there are several nieces and nephews who will miss their Uncle Randy.
We miss you and can’t wait to see you again soon!

“I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.”
