Randy M. Jostes, 62, passed away unexpectedly April 30 at his home in Wheaton. Randy was born January 5, 1956 in Moweaqua, IL to his loving parents Richard and Barbara (Andrews) Jostes. He studied architecture at the University Of Illinois and remained a passionate Illini for life. He was a devoted father, mentor and coach to his three sons Jon and Mike Jostes, and Thomas Vallina. He married the love of his life Danielle Jostes, on May 31, 2006. Randy poured his soul into his wife, his children, his grandchildren, his work, and everyone else that was lucky enough to know him. He was a friend to all and could direct anyone to a good glass of wine.
Randy was preceded in death by his parents Richard and Barbara Jostes, and his sister in law Cindy Jostes.
He is survived by his wife Danielle Jostes; his three children Jon (Kelly) Jostes, Michael (Ashley) Jostes, and Thomas Vallina; his two (soon to be three) grandchildren Isabella, Hudson and TBD Jostes; his brothers Mark and Brent Jostes; and sister Carol Becker.
