Randolph “Randy” Felker Memorial Endowed Scholarship Fund

Randolph “Randy” Felker –April 4, 1944 – November 3, 2021. With a strong sense of love for country, Randy joined the New Mexico Air National Guard after graduating from the University of New Mexico in 1966 and entered pilot training. Randy flew with the “Flying Tacos” for 25 years of dedicated service before retiring in 1990 with the rank of Lt Colonel. While serving with the NM Air National Guard, Randy went on to receive a Juris Doctor Degree from the University of New Mexico School of Law in 1972 and became a prominent Santa Fe attorney while maintaining a dual career as attorney and pilot. His wealth of knowledge and remarkable intellect was increasingly noticeable as he developed a successful and illustrious law career. He quickly became a respected litigator and a tenacious advocate for his clients, many of whom also became his friends. Having breakfast every morning with his ‘breakfast club’ friends and colleagues brought great enjoyment to his active life. Randy shared a ranch in Northern New Mexico with some of his friends where he enjoyed spending many summer weekends taking in the joys of various outdoor activities. As Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “It is not the length of life but the depth of life.” He leaves behind a legacy of fond memories that will be cherished by many.
