Randall Barth Pearson, 55, died unexpectedly of natural causes on July 1, 2017. Randy was born to Fred and Vivian Pearson on July 29, 1961. With the exception of one year living with relatives in Kansas, he lived in (or very near) Downers Grove, IL his entire life and would not have wanted it any other way.

Randy met and then married Namnama Paredes in May 2003, with whom he had two beloved children, Maddie and Adam.
Randy was a generous caretaker, doting son, proud dad, loyal friend, family historian, man of sharp quick wit, Chicago sports enthusiast and a fisherman. He is survived by his children, Maddie (13) and Adam (11) (Downers Grove), his mom, Vivian Pearson Borrink, and stepdad, Wendell Borrink (Oak Brook), brothers, Marty (sister-in-law Linda Pearson) (Glen Ellyn), and Greg (Downers Grove), and, his sister Andrea (brother-in-law Bryan Hoff) (Northfield, Minnesota). He is also survived by an extended family of nephews and nieces, uncles, aunts and cousins as well as his community of Downers Grove brothers by friendship.
