Randy was born on May 29, 1953, and passed away on December 20, 2018, at the age of 65. Along with his family, he moved to the
Leesville area in 1963. After graduating from Leesville High School in 1971, Randy went to work for the Kansas City Southern Railroad until his retirement in 1992. After his retirement, he attended Lamar Salter College taking the carpentry class and
graduating with honors in 1997. Randy was a Junior Warden, and faithfully served for 21 years, at Polk Memorial Episcopal Church.
You could always find Randy working on a new project in his shop on Anacoco Lake. When he wasn’t in his
shop, you could find him on the ballfield umpiring baseball and softball games. Randy also “enjoyed” going on RV trips with his family and serving up his famous pancakes for breakfast.
