August 1, 1935 - March 7, 2012

Randall, Thomas J.

Thomas Jay Randall was born August 1, 1935, to Doris and Mac Randall in Toledo, Ohio. Two years later he became big brother to William Randall. When he passed away March 7, 2012, he had been preceded by his family.

Seems simple. A man is born, lives his life on Earth, and in a natural order follows his parents into the next world. Not really.

In 1951 Tom met Dlorah Kay Davis. They married September 2, 1956, in Durango, Colorado. Their marriage was an adventure that carried them from Durango, to Farmington, New Mexico to Hobbs, New Mexico, to Kermit and Odessa, Texas to Altus, Oklahoma, and to where they found their home in Farmers Branch, Texas in 1965. Through 56 years of marriage, excepting 10 years of divorce, they accomplished much in their family: Michael Kent and his wife Denise; Michelle Anne and her children Courtney, Danielle, and Michael; Daniel Davis, his former wife Tommy Sue and children Sarah Rene and Scott Thomas; Douglas Mac and wife Raynette and their daughters Heather Marie and Andrea; and David Ray, his wife Drinda, and their children Richard Lyell, Forestt Christian, and David Ryan. They also have four great-grandchildren Hunter, Nicholas, Justice, and Rachel. Tom and Kay continued to enjoy a close relationship to Tom

AS a salesmen, I always enjoyed Tom and his knowledge of product and true value. He always treated me with respect and honesty, mostly because he was helping me with my line, he knew more about what I carried then I did. Mike and Danny have become friends through the business, I see a lot of Tom in them. God bless to Tom and his family.

D'rinda, Jill and I are so very sorry about Tom's passing. I can't imagine what it must be like for him to be gone; someone with so much energy and strength. May God bless you and your family in the wake of Tom's passing.

Tom was one of the 1st to welcome me in my move to Dallas from El Paso in 1994. We lost touch from about 1999 to 2010 when we re kindled our friendship and I am glad he was in my life

I didn't know Tom directly but have had the pleasure of knowing his son, Mikey. I guess it must be true - good men raise good sons.

Rest in Peace, Mr. Randall.

I thank God that I was blessed to know Tom R. He always had a warm smile and unconditionally loved others. He embedded in my memory several important life lessons for which I am grateful. The world is a better place because Tom chose to live the principles of the 12 Steps and unselfishly helped many others do the same. I am thankful that Tom asked me to present him his 25 year sobriety chip this past January. Thanks Tom for all that you said and did. And thank you Kay for sharing him with us!!
