Randall Keith Koll, 64, of Citrus Heights passed away at home on Thursday, Feb. 28 following a long and courageous battle with cancer. Randy was born in San Jose on July 5, 1954, the son of Raymond Keith and Florence LaVerne “Verni” Koll. He grew up in Campbell, where many of his early, happy and carefree, days were spent catching pollywogs with his brother, Greg at the town’s “percolation ponds.” This was the beginning of his life-long passion for fishing. In keeping with his adventurous nature and love of the outdoors, he would frequently try his hand at panning for gold during his younger years. Randy also enjoyed his career of long-haul and local trucking, camping, listening to music and watching old western movies, but especially spending time with family and friends who meant so very much to him. Following enlistment in the military at age 17 and completion of his duty in Korea, Randall was honorably discharged from his service with the Army in 1973. Although a bachelor for most of his life, while living in Rancho Cordova in 2003, he met his future wife. He and Deborah Buchko were united in marriage in November of 2005. Randy is survived by his wife Debbie Buchko-Koll, sisters Brenda Hogue of Allison, IA, Beverly Ryan and husband Jim of Santa Nella, and Vivian Koll and husband Abubakar Salami of Elk Grove; his father-in-law John Buchko of Citrus Heights; step-daughter Angela Buchko and her children Herci Joseph & Royce Buchko; step-daughter Erica and husband Cole Spencer; brothers-in-law Steve Buchko, David and wife Karen Buchko, Jeff and wife Jeanette Buchko, and by sister-in-law Jennifer and husband John Guetter; by several aunts and many nieces, nephews and cousins, along with his many long time and very good friends. He was preceded in death by his parents; his younger brother Gregory Clarence Koll; younger sister Kristeen Evelyn Evanoff; infant brother Ronald Leo Koll; by brother-in-law Paul Hogue; by mother-in-law Gerry Buchko and brother-in-law Mike Buchko; also, an aunt and several uncles, and by his paternal grandparents Leo and Margaret Koll and maternal grandparents Clarence and Evelyn Kaiser. A Celebration of Life will be held in Citrus Heights on April 6, 2019 at 2 p.m., in the Community Center at Creekside Estates Mobile Home Park.]]>

  3. Randy was an awesome guy with a beautiful outlook on life. He was always kind and considerate and had nothing but the best to say for each and everyone of us. He was my “fishing buddy” and we always had a great time on the water relaxing. What a great person, you will truly be missed for your kind spirit. Rest In Peace My Friend.
