Pittsburgh Bureau of Fire Mourns the Passing of Lieutenant Randolph "Randy" Meyer, II

PITTSBURGH — The Pittsburgh Bureau of Fire is grieving the loss of Lieutenant Randolph “Randy” Meyer, II who passed away on August 19, 2023.

Meyer grew up in Hazelwood and graduated from Taylor Allderdice High School in 2002. He attended the Pittsburgh Fire Training Academy and began his career with the Department of Public Safety as a firefighter in June 2007. After a decade and a half of service, he was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant in 2022.

“Randy was an exceptional man who embodied the spirit of what it means to be a firefighter: he was courageous, dedicated, and was always thinking of others. He was an excellent mentor to others in the Bureau and he bravely fought his battle until the very end,” said Darryl Jones, Chief of the Pittsburgh Bureau of Fire. “He will be greatly missed.”

Lieutenant Meyer was 38-years-old and passed after a valiant battle with a rare form of cancer; appendiceal cancer. His wife, Stephanie, describes how it was Randy’s mission to bring awareness to appendix cancer and to the ACPMP (Appendix Cancer Pseudomyxoma Peritonei Research Foundation).

The Department of Public Safety is honored by his long and devoted service and sends their deepest condolences to his family and many friends.
