LANSING, Mich. — Rep. Bronna Kahle hosted family members of a fallen Michigan Department of Corrections employee during a special Michigan House of Representatives ceremony.

The annual ceremony honors those who have fallen in the line of duty in Michigan and is a remembrance of the 9/11 terrorist attacks from 2001, a news release said.

Among those honored in the ceremony Thursday was Randy Rumler of Adrian, who died July 3 from COVID-19. He was 55. His wife, Alisha, and daughter, Raelynn, attended the ceremony.

For more than two decades, Randy Rumler worked as a corrections officer at the Gus Harrison Correctional Facility in Lenawee County. He also was an Army veteran.

"Randy Rumler was a dedicated public servant who worked on the front lines to help protect us all – even during a devastating global pandemic," Kahle, R-Adrian, said. "His selflessness and service should be remembered and honored, and that is what this ceremony at the state Capitol is all about."
