  1. I am heartbroken to hear of Randall’s passing. He was a special member of the class of ‘59. He kept in touch with everyone and kept us all informed about one another. He will be sorely missed. My sincere condolences to his entire family.

    • If you ever wanted to know about the latest gossip in the neighborhood, go to Randall! He would keep you informed. I am going to miss the old boy. There were 4 of us-Johnny Joe Layton, Horace Lindsey, Kenneth Scarborough and Randall were good buddies in high school and beyond.Guess you might say the circle has been broken. God Bless You Randall.

  3. There are not enough words to express the heartache I feel in the loss of Randall. He was not only a dear cousin but also the closest thing I had to a brother. I will always treasure the memories of our growing up years. Even though he is gone from our presence he will never be gone from our hearts. Both George and I will miss seeing him and his phone calls. Love him – yes, Miss him – absolutely, Forget him – never!!

  4. Jeanie and family, I was surprised to learn of Randall’s homegoing. The last time we saw each other and spoke, he was cooking at the steak house in Leona. He called out to me from clear across the room, isn’t that just like him? When I looked up, there was that huge smile, looking back at me from the other side of the room. Our paths didn’t cross often, but I’ll miss him. I considered him a friend, even though he was from Teague…. (:>))

    I wasn’t aware of his military and boy scout service, but it doesn’t surprise me.
    Be blessed, DT

  5. As a friend and a member of the Patriot Guard Riders, I hate that I can’t be there, but my Saturday is booked solid. I am conducting the funeral service for Betty DeFrance, here, at Antioch, Saturday morning. then I have a training session that afternoon.

    Just know that I would rather be there for you and Randall.
    Be blessed, D.T.
