Randall Harold ClevelandOctober 11, 1934 ~ February 22, 2017 (age 82)
It is with great sadness the family announces the peaceful passing of Randall Harold Cleveland 82 years, on Wednesday, February 22, 2017 at Humboldt District Hospital. Randall was born on October 11, 1934 in Verndale Saskatchewan, to Harold and Annie (nee Lung) Cleveland. He obtained his education at Selmond School. Randall later attended Kelsey Institute and took agriculture courses which provided a variety of training in mechanics and welding. For one winter Randall worked in a bush camp up north, and then in 1955 he started his farming career on the family farm. On November 25, 1961 at St. Brieux he married Evelyn Lavoie. They were blessed with four children. Through out his life Randall was an exceptional carpenter who put a lot of thought, planning, and care into numerous projects; building furniture for his children’s rooms, farm buildings, a truck camper and a hunting trailer. He always completed his projects down to the last detail. He was a true cowboy at heart who loved his horses and a good Western. He also loved moose hunting, having many a successful trip with his buddies in the bush near Porcupine Plain; he then passed that love of hunting to his sons. He enjoyed camping with the family around Saskatchewan he also participated with the local slow pitch team, and the occasional game of pond hockey. Unfortunately in 1982, his wife Evelyn passed away in a tragic car accident. His strong faith and commitment to family helped him in raising his children alone. A few years later he met Sharon Hills and they were married on October 14, 1989. In 1990 another son was added to the family. One of the highlights of his life was a trip to Norway in 1996 with his sisters to a family reunion where he visited the home where his grandparents lived, which is still occupied by family today. In 2001, Randall and Sharon moved to Lake Lenore, and Dean moved to the family farm. Randall continued to help with farming until 2014. He was an avid crossword puzzler and enjoyed coffee on a daily basis with his friends in Lake Lenore. Randall was a very generous social person, he loved to visit and he always enjoyed a good game of cards. Randall will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by his wife of 27 years Sharon Cleveland of Lake Lenore, his five children, 11 grandchildren, and five great grandchildren: Cindy (Barry) MacDonald and family: Brendon MacDonald, Regan MacDonald and Jeremiah Tarzwell MacDonald, all of St. Albert; Dean (Tiny) Cleveland of Verndale and family: Marlea Cleveland and her daughter Haddlea of Saskatoon, and Amber Cleveland of Verndale; Donna (Kerry) Haeusler and family: Raelene (Eric) Yeager and their children Aiden, Jake, Avery, and Tessa, Darcie Haeusler (Aaron Foy), Tyson Haeusler (Jesiah Pask), Shelby Haeusler all of Lake Lenore and Riley Haeusler of Saskatoon; Darrell Cleveland of Lake Lenore; and Michael Cleveland (Amber Rumpel) and daughter Valkyrie of Lake Lenore; brothers and sisters: David (Mary) Cleveland of Penticton, BC; Faye Godart of Humboldt, Christal Krahenbil (Leon Helgert) of Humboldt, Jeanne (Ron) Egger of Ft.
