Randal Eugene Sewell

February 20, 1955 — August 26, 2023

Randal Eugene Sewell (known by most as Randy), aged 68, sadly passed away August 26, 2023. He was a longtime resident of Albuquerque, NM and Las Cruces, NM. Son of Weldon Eugene Sewell and Etta Rae Sewell, both preceded him in death. Randy was born on February 20, 1955 and grew up in Albuquerque. He moved to Las Cruces after high school to attend New Mexico State University (NMSU). He was a founding member of the Alpha Tau Omega (ATO) fraternity at NMSU and remained a loyal Aggie. He spent time between Albuquerque and Las Cruces for most of his life and acquired friends across New Mexico.

Randy spent much of his life working in the large equipment rental business; he worked at Frank’s Supply, US Rentals, United Rentals, and most recently Sunbelt Rentals. He had a passion for his career and loved what he did. Oftentimes he worked long hours, weekends, and his job took him on long drives, which is when he would call just to chat.

Randy was a good man who cared for others and tried to help anytime he could. He was a loving son, brother, father, grandfather, and friend. Randy lived a full life, often enjoying hunting, fishing, and anything that got him outdoors. He loved his family and friends; and cherished the time he spent with them.

He is survived by his daughter, Alexandra Opell, and son-in-law Johnathan Opell. His grandchildren Trent Wright and Kaylee Opell. He is also survived by his siblings; brother Rex Sewell (Barbara Sewell) and sister Patti Miller (Bill Miller). He had many nieces, nephews, extended family, friends, and coworkers that loved him as well.
