Randy Owens

Charles Randall “Randy” Owens, 67, our beloved husband, dad, papa, great-grandpa and friend went home to be with his Lord and Savior on October 2, 2017.

Randy was born in Winchester, Indiana on February 13, 1950. He lived the first 13 years of his life near the family farm in Muncie, Indiana. He moved to the Houston area in 1963 where he lived the remainder of his life. Growing up, Randy was an accomplished athlete and excelled in both baseball and basketball.


While playing sports in High School, Randy met the love of his life, Debbie. They immediately fell in love and were married on July 27, 1968. From 1969 – 1972 he served his country in the United States Air Force. In 1976, he began to work at his father-in-law’s trucking company.  Randy and his wife Debbie founded Triumph Trucking Inc., making it into a very successful and profitable company before selling in 1990 to pursue another transportation venture. Randy formed Owens Leasing in 1988 and it has been operated since 1990 as a contract agency and was leased to Ace Transportation from 1990 to 1994. In 1994, Randy and Debbie were approached by Trism Specialized Carriers to form an Owner/Operator and Agency division for their company. Randy built the O/O division to one of the most reputable in the country. Randy also handled all Houston terminal operations for Trism from 1998 to 2000, while they were in the process of hiring someone for that position.

In August of 2001, after many meetings with Landstar System, Inc., Randy moved Owens Leasing from Trism to Landstar, finally finding the home we were looking for. After over 15 years at Landstar System, Inc., Owens Leasing has been one of the top-producing agents of the 1200 agents nationwide.


Randy led the company until his passing in October of 2017, when Rick assumed the role of President and now leads the company in the day to day operations.  Debbie remains the CEO/Owner.


Randy’s greatest passion was Jesus, and it was evident in his life by the way he loved and led his family. He treasured spending time with them. You would regularly find him spending hours with his grandkids watching their favorite animated bible videos, attending their activities, and making memories at the ranch. He was deeply loved by his family, never met a stranger, and for the last 15 years (together with his grandkids) welcomed people as they entered Sagemont Church.

Rick Owens

Rick began in the transportation industry at 15 years old, working part time and learning the business. In 1994 Rick went to work full time for Owens Leasing. Rick has moved from dispatcher to the position of President. He manages all of the operations of the company and is the first point of contact for all new customers. Rick is married to the love of his life (Tarrah) and has 3 beautiful little girls (Taylor, Sydney and Morgan). Rick is a member of the League City Volunteer Fire Department and has dedicated many hours of his time to that organization. Rick and his family are also members of Sagemont Church and have dedicated their lives to following Christ.

Stephen Nix

After Deah (Randy’s daughter) and Stephen were married, he came to work for Owens Leasing in February of 2007. They have 5 children all together(Emily, Natalie, Lance, Haleigh, and Preslie). Their oldest is married and has given them 2 grandchildren already. Stephen has learned the business under Randy and Rick and he handles different projects for customers all across the country. Stephen has held many positions over the years, from ditchdigger, pipefitter, salesman, and many in between, to now Vice President of Owens Leasing. Deah and Stephen are both involved and serving at Sagemont Church. Stephen says: “The Lord has blessed us both and we will continue to follow His guidance in our lives wherever He may take us.” His favorite scripture is Psalm 90:17 May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us; establish the work of our hands for us-yes, establish the work of our hands.
