Randall S. Piper


Randall S. Piper, 49 of La Crosse, WI. passed away Sunday, February 6, 2022 at his home. He was born on October 22, 1972 to Richard and Gail (Erickson) Piper. On October 12, 2019 Randall married Bruce Fruchtl.

Randall and Bruce enjoyed simple things and extravagant things, including Randall’s brooches and antiques. They loved kayaking on the waters around La Crosse, sitting on beaches in Florida, and visiting friends and family all over the country. They saw Illinois, Missouri, Texas, Minnesota, and South Dakota together, aside from the many Florida and other adventures. They loved visiting museums, seeing musicals and plays, and going to the St Louis Zoo together. They rarely found a restaurant or a person they didn’t like.

Randall is survived by his husband, Bruce Piper-Fruchtl; mother, Gail Hansen; many aunts, uncles, cousins, and other family and friends.

He was preceded in death by his father, Richard. He especially loved Grandma Estella Piper, and Aunts Ruth & Mabel. We can’t believe he never wrote a book about Aunt Dolly.

A memorial service was held on Saturday, February 12, 2022 at Dickinson Family Funeral Home, 401 Main Street, Onalaska, WI. with Fr. Rick Roberts officiating. A time of fellowship immediately followed the service.

In lieu of flowers or gifts, please send a memorial to Elephants Without Borders “EWB”, Inc., 500 Linwood Ave., Buffalo, NY. 14209
