Randall K. Nass passed away unexpectedly on Jan. 12, 2024, at the age of 65.
Beloved husband of Jane Glynn-Nass, he is the very proud father of Tom (Larissa), Tyler (Jessica Fogel), and Tim (Jenny Weeden), and the doting Papa of Andre. He is further survived by his sisters, Sandy Nass and Patti Witkofski (Ken); his mother and father in-law, Tom and Beth Glynn; along with his sisters-in-law; brothers-in-law; many nieces; nephews; and dear friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents, William “Bud” Nass and Marjorie Nass.
Growing up in Elkhorn, Randy graduated from Elkhorn High School, where he lettered in track and football. Randy enjoyed sharing stories about his Elkhorn Elk days. He went to the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, where he majored in architecture and met his future wife, Jane.
He went on to earn a Master’s in Business Administration and worked in architecture firms until he pivoted to commercial real estate. His main acquisition was an abandoned warehouse in Walkers Point that he and the Nass family converted into luxury historic apartments and commercial space.
Lovingly nicknamed “the building,” this property occupied the majority of Randy’s professional career, where he found his niche when he opened Archi-Antiques vintage store in the first-floor commercial space. This allowed him to combine his unique ability to salvage auctioned antiques and repurpose them with his creative vision to share with others.
Randy was a loving father who would do anything for his children. He loved to share stories of fond memories with his children like carrying all three of his sons upstairs on his back or dragging them behind him as they held onto his leg. He always advocated for his children to achieve their best, whether that was in school, in sports, in a carpentry trade, or other career choices.
His sons will remember, either fondly or begrudgingly, the many years of tree removal and building renovations. Randy shared many of his construction skills with his sons, mentoring them in every way he could while offering his talents to their various building projects, even when he was not asked. The more that he gave of his time, resources and knowledge to his children, the happier he was.
Visitation will be on Jan. 26, at Becker Ritter, 14075 W. North Ave., Brookfield, from 4 to 6 p.m. A funeral mass will be celebrated at St. John Vianney Parish, 1755 N. Calhoun Rd., Brookfield, on Jan. 27 at 1 p.m. with visitation at noon until time of service.
