Bailey R. (Randy) Finkbiner, 55, Helper resident, passed away Feb. 24, 2010. Randy was born March 22, 1954, in Rawlins, Wyo., to George and Berta (Winningham) Finkbiner. He married Jan Mashburn in 1982, and had two children, Erin and Cy. They were later divorced.
In 1992 he married Natalie VanRoosendaal with whom he had two boys, Clint and Clay. The family lived in Helper, where he was employed by the Union Pacific Railroad as an engineer.
Randy loved team roping and his dogs, cats and horses. More than anything Randy loved and cherished his wife and children and was always his kids' biggest fan at their sporting events. He'll be remembered as a great 'storyteller' who made his family and friends laugh throughout his life.
Randy, you will always have a special place in our hearts and will be missed and loved by all who knew you.
