Dad's Obituary

Randy Clark Loveless lived a life full of fun!  He was born in Provo, Utah on November 1, 1953 to “C” LaVar Loveless and Kathryn Bernice Clark Loveless.   He returned to his brothers and father after a short battle with encephalitis, surrounded by his family, on November 12, 2014.  He was an active member of the LDS church and was currently serving as bishop of the Orem Park 8th Ward.  He loved serving the members of his ward.  He graduated from Orem High School and the LDS Church seminary program.  He served a full-time mission in Virginia.  Upon returning from his mission, he married his high school sweetheart and best friend, Marie Vogel, on June 19, 1975 in the Provo Temple.   His motto in life was, “Work hard, play hard!”   And he was very good at doing both!  He has had many jobs, in many different fields ranging fro working on the oil rigs in Wyoming, to being a real estate agent in Orem, Utah.   His favorite places were in the mountains hunting or on the beach in Mazatlan, Mexico during our annual Christmas vacation.   He loved spending time with his family!   He would ask his grandchildren who loved them the most?  And would train them to say “Grandpa!”  Another of his loves in life was talking to everyone and hearing their life stories.  He was always interested in other people.   He is preceded in death by his father LaVar ,  his brothers Mike and Bryan and is survived by his mother, Kathryn, his sisters Lakay (Scott) Stephenson and Lorraine (Rickey) Carter, his sister-in-law Colleen Loveless,  his wife Marie and their eight children, Trisha (Brandon Seamons), Lisa (Doug Burr), Ray (Marie) Loveless, James (Tiffany) Chadwick, Richard (Janell) Loveless, Kati Loveless, David (Kaley) Loveless, and Joshua Loveless, as well as 16 grandchildren.   We love you Dad and will miss you! We look forward to seeing you again and hearing all of your new stories.  Till we meet again!

Veiwing will be held on Sunday November 16, 5:30-8:30  at Walker Sanderson Funeral Home 646 E 800 N Orem UT, and Monday, November 17, 9:30-10:30  at the Orem Park Stake Center 195 W 300 S Orem, UT.  Funeral Services will follow.  Instead of donating flowers, the family would request donation to the Church’s missionary fund, thank you!


  1. I remember meeting brother Loveless when he came to Zagreb, Croatia with his family when Kati's mission was over. Before that I only knew him from the stories Kati would tell me. He really seemed like a nice, happy, loving man, and kati always spoke very highly of him.

    Sadly, I can not come to the Viewing and the funeral service since I live far away, but I will be there I my heart and my prayers will be with you!

    I am trully sorry for your loss.

    Kati, I love you!
