David Terry Randall
In a valley where skies are so blue,
Where the hearts are all loyal and true
Where there’s joy in the air,
And good will everywhere
Lived a man that we all adore.
On Saturday, May 20, 2023, David Terry Randall returned home to his Heavenly Father and Savior Jesus Christ. What a wonderful reunion it was for him to be reunited with his parents, grandparents, and older brother. Dave was born on February 26, 1950, in Ogden, UT. He was the second of three sons born in the Randall Home.
He grew up in Morgan where he was an active baseball and basketball player. Dave worked through his youth on the Boyce Bros. Fur Ranch and Heiner Ford. Dave attended Morgan High School where he was Student Body President (the best looking one - according to Mom). Dad’s athletic career was stalled due to health reasons where he then excelled in the band, school musicals, choir, and dating. Betty Lou was always concerned about the dating.
After graduating from Morgan High and Seminary, he served a full-time mission in the California East Mission. Upon returning he married his high school sweetheart, Janet Little. Dave and Janet were married April 28, 1972, in the Salt Lake City Temple. Dave and Janet had four children. During this time, Dave graduated from Weber State University. The Randall Family avidly enjoyed many family traditions: camping trips, backyard BBQs, sporting events, family parties, and the annual Christmas Eve Pageant at Mom and Dad’s. Dave’s love and passion for family increased significantly when his grandchildren entered the family.
Dave began his professional career at Mountain Fuel Supply which lasted for 30 years. Upon completion of his successful career with the gas company, he then shifted his employment to Mark H. Bott Company until present day.
Dad has a firm testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ. He was a valiant servant of our Heavenly Father serving as Bishop, and in many Bishoprics, Elders Quorum President, Young Mens President, Stake High Council, Stake Clerk (16 years), and a devoted Home Teacher. We know that he is still serving valiantly.
Dad enjoyed camping, hunting, and fishing with his boys and grandsons, weekend getaways with Mom, watching Hallmark movies, attending any grandchild event, and he was an avid “tablet photographer.”
Dave was preceded in death by his parents, Dick and Betty Lou Randall and brother, Gordon Randall. He is survived by his loving wife of 51 years, Janet, and children: Cody (Lindsey), Nichole (Tad), Brock (Jodie), Tiffany, his ten grandchildren: Reagan, Wyatt, Rhett, Tripp, Colt, Ridge, Meg, Paige, Kru, and Wick, his brother, Chris Randall, and his mother-in-law, Darlene Little.
We would like to thank all our friends and family for the many years of continuous love and support.
A viewing will be held Thursday, May 25, 2023, from 6:00-8:00 p.m. at the Morgan Stake Center (355 North 700 East). Funeral services will be held Friday, May 26, 2023, at 12:00 p.m. with a viewing from 10:00-11:30 a.m. at the Morgan Stake Center.
Live or die, we stand together,
Sun or rain, our family forever,
For we love you our great big guy!
