Obituary of Dale Randy Bacon
Dale Randy Bacon was born on May 24, 1954, in Toledo, Ohio. He was one of three children born from the union of Dan and Norma (Cameron) Bacon. Randy, as he became commonly known, attended, and graduated from Whitmer High School with the Class of 1972.
Randy had a passion for building and fixing things. It was no surprise that after graduating from high school, Randy took his skills and love for tinkering to a whole new level. He bravely opened DR Bacon Auto Repair, a haven for car enthusiasts seeking reliable service. Though his days were consumed with hard work, he embraced it wholeheartedly and learned valuable lessons throughout the years. Randy's dedication knew no bounds, and there was no car he couldn't fix. Life had its ups and downs, and sadly, in 2013, Randy faced a difficult decision. After years of tireless effort, DR Bacon Auto Repair closed its doors.
A gifted gardener, Randy was born with the green thumb of the family. Each year, he eagerly embarked on the journey of planting both a vegetable and a flower garden. With meticulous care and knowledge, he nurtured his plants, transforming them into lush and vibrant blooms and bountiful produce.
