A friendly smile and hug from Randy each time we met will be a pleasant memory of mine. He was always so up-beat and encouraging to everyone, a talent we each should duplicate. RIP my friend, you were special!! My prayers to the family who will surely miss him.
As a classmate of Randy at Mabelvale High School, I always knew Randy as a very respectful and somewhat quite individual. He was always ready to help in any way he could and never asserted himself on anyone. To his family and friends, our prayers and condolences are lifted up for you. I know he will be missed by many.
Randy was a classmate of mine at Mabelvale High School. He was always friendly to everyone and I never heard a negative comment about him. He attended our 50th high school reunion and spoke to his classmates with a great deal of passion and love. I saw Randy periodically over the years and he was always the same. He will be missed.
IT WAS ALWAYS A GOOD DAY TO DRIVE WITH RANDY, ALWAYS HAD A SMILE FOR EVERY ONE. HE WAS A TRUE SALESMAN. WE WILL MISS HIM.

Rick, Al, Johnny, and all of Charles Randy's family, so sorry for your loss. Growing up I always looked up to Charles Randy and as an adult, he always had kind words to say whenever our paths crossed. Thinking of you all with love.
I just know Terrie Runnells and husband from Mosaic Church, Little Rock. They have been my church family for over 5 years now.Our love and deepest sympathy go to all of you in the family. May God be with you.
I have fond memories of Randy. We first met at a meeting at our company headquarters years ago. He was a great friend to many and had a way of including everyone around him in whatever the conversation was. I had the good luck of working with him many times and was proud to have a friend like Randy. Rest In Peace my friend.
Thanks for calling us to let us know of his passing. We have missed seeing y'all. See you Friday.
Sincerest and warmest condolences to Al and family in the passing of his oldest brother, Randy. Randy is now in the presence of the LORD and all is well with him. We are praying for God to bless his wife, children, siblings, and the entire family with His love, comfort, peace, and strength to uphold you and keep you during your time of grief.
Randy was very helpful to me and my company , Wooley Elec Supply, for many years. Always a smile and a handshake
Beverly, et al, Please accept my sincerest condolences, on Randy’s passing. I am asking The Holy Spirit to pour His peace and contentment, comfort and joy, down over you all, like warm honey. Randy surely was a great guy. Thanks, for sharing him with me. Blessings! Libbie T. Dougan
