James Randall “JR” Lind, 64, of Scottsbluff, was reunited with his youngest son in Heaven on April 28, 2020.

The family is planning a celebration of JR’s life on the 4th of July to honor his memory. In Lieu of flowers, the family asks for donations to be made to the Scottsbluff Volunteer Center who not only delivered his daily lunch, but also provided JR an opportunity to chat with their incredible volunteers. Donations can be mailed to 1517 Broadway Suite 106 Scottsbluff, NE 69361.

JR was born in Torrington, WY on Christmas Day in 1955 to James and Enid Lind. His early education was received in Lyman, Nebraska, later graduating from Huntly, Wyoming. JR attended college at LCCC, graduating with a degree in Mechanics in 1976. He grew up the middle child with two sisters, Suzanne and Kari.

In 1980, JR married Sheila Grothe. JR and Sheila raised their three sons Chris, Matt, and Tyler in Scottsbluff where JR worked at Western Sugar for 19 years. After their divorce, JR moved to Minnesota for 6 years where he owned and operated a service station. In an effort to be closer to family, JR moved back to Wyoming where he worked for the Wyo-Cross Ranch in LaGrange, Wyoming until his retirement in early 2016. After retiring, JR moved to Scottsbluff so he could be involved with his grandchildren’s activities.

JR was an avid hunter and fisherman and enjoyed collecting coins, watches, knives, and guns. JR loved spoiling his grandchildren for Christmas and was a firework fanatic who lived for the 4th of July. He loved shooting off an impressive display for his family and friends. He also always looked forward to his yearly date with his sisters to make salsa and enjoyed sharing the fruits of their labor with everyone he could.

JR is preceded in death by parents Jim and Enid Lind; both paternal and maternal grandparents; son Tyler Lind; and former wife Sheila Randall.

He is survived by two sons: Chris (Cari) of Scottsbluff, NE and Matt of Gillette, WY; Grandchildren Shelby Fisher, Caleb Lind, and Kaidynce Lind; sisters Suzanne Lind of Torrington, WY and Kari (Jeff) McClun of Veteran, WY; nephews and nieces Kody (Tyler) McClun, Kiffany McClun, and Kassidy McClun; great nephews Mason, Kanin, and Kyson; and aunt Kayce Weber of Torrington, WY.

I was so very sorry to see that Randy has passed away. It was great last summer to get to reconnect with him when he was considering purchasing a house here in Torrington. We spent time together driving around and looking at several homes...I was happy for him when he decided to purchase in Scottsbluff to be closer to his grand children. He talked a lot about his family and all the fun things you all did together! I am sure he will be greatly missed. Bob and Judy Daily

Suzanne, Kari and family, I am so sorry to hear about Randy. We were good childhood friends when he was going to school in Lyman. I did see him a year or so ago at the hospital as he was going to a doctor's appointment. He said that I probably wouldn't remember him but I said you're Randy Lind. He was is rather poor health but it was so nice to see him again after all these years. I hope the good memories sustain you, I remember playing Combat soldiers and staying over at your house and those long ago grade school days . God Bless, Wayne Nochi
