Randall Rowe Stoklas, M.S., PsyD, 76, originally from Oak Park, died on May 15, 2022. A wonderful child psychologist who loved children and had a great sense of humor, he was lovingly called “Uncle Randy.” He received his Doctor of Psychology degree, with honors, from the Chicago School of Professional Psychology and was elected to “Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities & Colleges” 1988-1989, in recognition of outstanding merit and accomplishment.
A true humanitarian, he spent two years in the Peace Corps in Rajasthan, India. He also supported causes for children, immigrant rights, and social justice. The world is truly a better place because he was here, and even in death he continues to serve as his body was donated to science.
Randy is survived by his sister, Jaine Krishnamachari; his sister-in-law, Sandy (Neville) Stoklas; his nieces and nephews, Mathew (Vanessa) Krishnamachari, Sara Krishnamachari, Tammy Stoklas, and Sarah (Randy) Quimby; and his great-nieces and -nephews, Mathew Krishnamachari Jr., Jasmine Krishnamachari, Anastasia Krishnamachari, Sarai Quimby, Michael Quimby, and Abigail Stoklas.
Randy’s body was donated to science. The family will be holding a memorial service in California and would appreciate donations to “Save The Children.”
