Randy was the manager at McCoy’s Building Supply in Palestine for the past six years. He took great pride in the work he did at McCoy’s and he believed working there made him a better man. Randy never forgot where he came from and looked forward to where he was headed.
He enjoyed fishing, shooting pool, poker, singing karaoke, riding his John Deere Mower, bonfires, long naps and most of all, his family and friends. He had a quick wit and sense of humor that drew you to him. He was the life of the party! Randy and Stephanie were baptized together on November 22, 2009, by Bro.
