STERLING – Randy J. Olds, 59, passed away peacefully at home on Wednesday, January 6, 2021, after an illness. Born in Webster, the son of Gordon R. and Priscilla (Racine) Olds, Randy resided in Worcester before moving to Sterling 25 years ago. He leaves his loving wife of 38 years, Pamela A. (O’Connor) Olds; his sons, Daniel Olds and his wife, Laura of Boston, Christopher Olds of Sterling and Andrew Olds and his wife, Ann Marie of Dixfield, ME; his daughter, Amanda Olds of Sterling; his brothers, Brian Olds of Webster and Bruce Olds of Redmond, WA; his brother-in-law, Dr. William T. O’Connor and his wife, Sheryl of Holden; three nephews; many wonderful friends, including Gary and Ellie Vanasse; and his beloved cats, Tico, Chico and Monty. Randy worked as a clerk for the U.S. Postal Service in Worcester and Shrewsbury for 30 years before retiring in 2017. A pillar of the local youth sports community, Randy dedicated his spare time to coaching baseball, basketball & soccer in both Worcester and Sterling. He was an integral volunteer for the Tris Speaker and George P. Gibbs Little Leagues - coordinating and training umpires. An avid sports fan, especially of the New York Yankees and Giants, he possessed a total recall of sports figures and their statistics. Randy loved driving his John Deere tractor, even when there was no grass to cut. Some of his most cherished moments with family and friends were spent swimming or taking trips to the Cape and Maine. He loved the holidays and every year, on the day after Thanksgiving, Randy continued the family tradition of hand-cutting an oversized tree from the local tree farm. Randy was warm and funny, with a unique wit that always made you laugh. He loved and cared for his family and friends in the deepest of ways. He will truly be missed by all. Due to Covid-19 restrictions and for everyone’s safety, funeral services are private at this time. In light of his commitment to our community and in lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to either the George P. Gibbs Little League, P.O. Box 1357, Sterling, MA 01564, or the Wachusett Food Pantry, P.O. Box 62, Jefferson, MA 01522.
