Randy Edward Selnes March 18, 1956 – March 2, 2019

It is with sadness we announce the sudden passing of Randy Edward Selnes in his Sydney Mines, Nova Scotia home March 2, 2019, at the age of 62. Randy was the eldest of four born to Thomas and Ruth (McNab) Selnes. He is survived by his mother; children, Rebecca (Dale) Fyfe, Ember Selnes, Melody “Rose” Selnes and Jubal Selnes; grandchildren Jenessa and Makaela Fyfe; sister Teresa and brother Greg (Linda) Selnes; as well as extended family. Randy was predeceased by his father and sister Cheryl (Gerry) Gardin. Born and raised in southern Alberta, Randy primarily made his home in Lethbridge, although for the last five years he has made his home in Nova Scotia with his love Heather Clarke. Randy was a fantastic cook, a talented artist and enjoyed gardening and spending time outdoors. His greatest passion was music and he had incredible talent. He graduated from the U of L with a degree in music and music remained a constant in his life. He could play any instrument, but usually favored his guitar. Randy was blessed with an impeccable ear and rhythm, he was in multiple bands throughout his life and often wrote his own music. He was a Born Again Christian and enjoyed sharing his musical talents with praise and worship in the local churches wherever he lived. A service was previously held in Nova Scotia. Randy will once again be returning home to Lethbridge.
