January 3, 2022 19 Condolences Print Obituary

Randy Mueller of Edmonton passed away peacefully on December 30, 2021 at the age of 55.

He is predeceased by his mother Julienne Mueller in 2012 and his father Jerry Mueller in 2013.

Randy will be lovingly remembered by his two siblings, Glenn (Cherilyn) and Gloria (Mike), his nieces Micaila and Jolene, as well as numerous extended family and many very special friends.

Randy leaves behind his best friend Carly Neis, along with her service/therapy dog Gilmore. The support, love and unconditional care Carly has given these past several months will be forever cherished. The comfort that Gilmore has provided to Randy is a gift of canine devotion and love.

Randy’s musical arrangements were magical! His talent and creativity for music was immense. But his true passion was in showing and teaching others that they can express their passion and creativity and reach their potential. Always encouraging the words… “never listen if someone tells you we can’t or shouldn’t sing…everyone can sing!     Randy Mueller

Randy’s musical journey spans many years back as a composer, choral director, vocal coach and music director for theatre. He made his conducting debut at age 19. Randy knew how to inspire whoever was fortunate to work with him. With all his incredible talent he was humble and devoted to helping others reach their potential. You will be missed Randy.

A celebration of life will take place in 2022!

The family asks that memorial donations be made in lieu of flowers to the Cross Cancer Institute in Edmonton, AB.

 

  1. I am heartbroken to hear of Randy’s passing. Randy was an amazing talent. He was my accompanist for Kiwanis music festival for many many years! If it wasn’t for him I would not have had such beautiful music to sing to and take me to provincials many years in a row. Sending loving prayers to all his family and friends who are also grieving the loss of this beautiful person. RIP Randy ❤️

  2. I was fortunate to work with Randy on a few projects over the years at Fringe and with EMT
    Randy, you will be missed by so many. You were taken away from us much too early. Rest will my friend.

  3. Sending our deepest sympathies to Randy’s family and friends. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

  4. So sorry to hear of Randy’s passing. I remember him growing up in the Delton community area, different league functions or skating.
    Deepest condolences to Randy’s family and friends. Forever in our hearts. Your song may have ended, But your melodies will live on. RIP🕊🙏🏻

  5. Randy and I taught many, many students over the last thirty+ years. From some amazing children and teens at the Foote Theatre School to the talented adults and kids at Edmonton Musical Theatre. He brought out the best in me as he did with all who knew him.

    Some of you may know that he was also quite the figure skater in his youth as well. He often told me how much he enjoyed it. He must’ve loved dressing up in those flamboyant skating outfits! I can just see it.

    Randy also wrote an opera which my husband Josh and I went to see. Can’t remember when that was, but it was clear that he was what we call a ‘Renaissance Man’.

    Though I find it difficult letting it sink in that I won’t be seeing him anymore, I am comforted to remember my last visit with him in his most recent digs (sort of a hospice) this past Halloween with Carly and Gilmore at his side. As we hugged and said our good-byes, we looked into each other’s eyes and mouthed the words “I love you”.

    Being with him made me a better teacher, a better director, a better musician. He was, and always will be, someone very special that I’ll hold in my heart until I too am gone from the world. I will forever miss my Randybear.

  6. I am so sad to know that Randy and his incredible music are not physically present any longer. He was a unique human being…amazingly talented and as you can see from the messages…extremely generous and passionate about helping other talented people become successful. I only had a very brief Fringe gig with Randy years ago but I became a “fan” and loved seeing and hearing him in action with various theatre productions! One of my own vocal students who was new to Musical theatre experienced Randy’s coaching and support during rehearsals for her first show with Broadway Bound. She freaked out …thinking she couldn’t hit her high note in “I feel Pretty”…but Randy wouldn’t let her off the hook! He had a way of bringing out the best in performers! Having someone of his caliber of talent believe in you really boosted your confidence. Randy will be missed and remembered by so many. We all agree, he made his final Exit way too soon!

  7. I will forever remember Randy’s kind and accepting smile. Heartfelt condolences to Glenn, Gloria and their families and to all of Randy’s extended family from the arts community. May he be singing again and comforted by a healing reunion with his parents.

    • I was so sorry to hear about Randy’s death. He was an amazing, energetic teacher, and my daughter enjoyed learning from him in EMT. His impact on the lives of others will be felt forever.

  8. I remember Randy’s kindness, warmth and enthusiasm for all things musical. He was an absolute joy to be around those many years ago when we were so much younger. Remember him singing Lean On Me with me in a show my mom directed in Sherwood Park way back in 1987 – him leaning on my 5’1” self with his well over 6’ tall self.
    The world and Edmonton’s theatre community was so much better for having him in it.
    Liza yuzda (and my mom – Janet McKinnon)

  9. Teacher, co-worker, mentor and most importantly a friend. Our relationship evolved over 35 years. His generosity matched his considerable talent and he was giving of his music, his friendship, his talent. A shared love of all things musical bonded us and I loved sharing with him all the obscure pieces of music, which he then shared with his students. I shall miss our meals together, the singing, collaborating on shows and the laughter. My heartfelt condolence to his family and considerable number of friends. The world has lost a truly unique and talented individual. I love you, Randy.

  10. So very sad to hear of Randy’s much too premature passing. We only met Randy a few times but his talent was unequaled as was his kindness. The Angels will be thrilled to have him on their team.
    Bob and Ruth Lineker

  12. I am not surprised by the many tributes to such a kind, caring person and remarkable musician.

    Randy had a way of making rehearsals at St. George’s Choir such a fun and joyful experience. He took pride in putting on an entertaining concert – for those in the choir and those in the audience. Thank you, Randy! The world is a better place because of people like you.

  13. Heartbroken , Randy was always so kind and touched everyone he met . He always made music fun. And encouraged and challenged me. He always gave me all the wordy and wierd songs. And played to my strength as well. And with his amazing piano playing skills he made me sound even better. I will never forget you . Thank you for coming into our lives are hearts and or songs.

  14. On behalf of the Woodcroft Community League, we offer or deepest condolences to Randy’s family and friends. Randy, through EMT, was the choir leader of our local choir.
