Randy Lamar Keys

August 26, 1982 — April 2, 2024

Randy Lamar Keys was born on August 26, 1982, two months later Randy was adopted by Ronnie Keys and Joyce Keys. Immediately Randy stole Ronnie’s (Pops) heart and became a daddy’s boy. In August of 1991, Randy became an integral part of the blended family of Ronnie, Andria, Alex and Gabby. Randy and Alex were thick as thieves and Gabby loved them both and looked up to them. 


At an early age he was baptized at Second Baptist Church under the leadership of Pastor Willie Davis. He regularly attended Sunday School and Vacation Bible School as a child. He worked as a youth usher along with his sisters for many years.


 As a child Randy really enjoyed family vacations, family outings, and extended family gatherings. 


Randy attended Mountain View Elementary School, Kit Carson and O’Callahan Middle School, and graduated from Eldoraldo High School and Area Technical Trade Center (A.T.T.C) for culinary. Randy also attended Community College of Southern Nevada where he studied to be a chef. Through the years he was employed by MGM properties, Wynn, Station Casinos and Resorts World.


 Randy played t-ball as a young boy and took karate classes, he was not much of an athlete (but obviously, no one could tell Randy anything). He was a boy scout , he played the saxophone and loved bowling. Bowling was a sport where he really did shine. He bowled a perfect 300 game while bowling in the Second Baptist Church League, with Pops and Mom on his team and received a 300 ring to prove it. Teaching TaySean to bowl was… a struggle. Randy also had a passion for cooking and food presentation. 


In August of 2018, Randy married Shansi and they became a blended family with their boys TaySean and Jaylen. They extended their family and had two boys, Brycen and Cairo. Randy enjoyed spending time with his family and hosting BBQ’s. He made sure to teach the boys to cook simple meals, teach TaySean to shoot pool,  give Jaylen football advice before his games, and teach Brycen to bowl. He loved date nights and trying new food with his wife.  



The sun went down in the life of Randy L. Keys on April 2, 2024.
