Randy Fink - Tribute
When talking to people and the name Randy Fink is mentioned, many people use the words  dedicated, some think loyalty, but mostly passionate best describes Randy. At a very early age Randy would spend endless hours at the Rostock ball diamonds, as he literally lived a stone throw away from the ball diamond. Not only did he find time to play ball himself, but  in his late teen aged years he dedicate his time to coaching his younger brothers  ball team and from that point he never missed the opportunity to support coaching more than one ball team in a season.


In the off season you could find Randy either on the bench or in the stands in Milverton supporting their youth hockey or the 4 Wheel Drives.  He dedicatd many hours holding a seat as an executive for those organizations.

If you ask anyone in South Western Ontario if they know of any other person with more passion or knowledge for the game it would be a resounding no. Randy had a vast knowledge of the game and always weighed out every decision or comment when approached for advice, he was the “go to guy” as many people would say. During his 40 plus years Randy was the Pillar within the Sebringville Athletics’ Association. Not only holding a postion as president in Sebringville he was the driving force in Perth Fastball. For 20 plus years he was very involved and looked at on many occasions for his vast knowledge of the game and always providing valued assistance with the Huron Perth Girls Fastball. Randy’s love for the game never stopped in his later years and currently holds the position as President  of the Ladies Tri-County fastball league.

Randy’s 40 plus years of work at AO Smith shows how loyal he is. His loyalty never shines brighter than seeing Randy show up to watch his kids play sports, even if it means sitting in his car watching the game from the parking lot.                                     

Randy has touched so many people in the community  young and old as either a coach, friend, motivator and a mentor. The softball community will sadly miss a legend and pillar in the community. His legacy will hopefully make us stronger.
