Randall James Williams "Randy"

Resident of Columbus, formerly Portsmouth

Navy Veteran

FC Daehler Mortuary

Randall James Williams "Randy", 58 years old, of Columbus, Ohio passed away on December 14, 2023. He was born on August 21, 1965, in Portsmouth, Ohio to the late Johnnie Williams and Willa Mae Ivory.

Randy was a man of strong values and unwavering commitment to his loved ones. He will be profoundly missed by the love of his life, wife of twenty years, Latoscia Williams, his devoted son, Micheal Williams, his mother, Willa Mae Ivory, and his sisters, Lucinda "Cindy" Parker and Terri Wood-Law. Randy's passing leaves a void in the hearts of his family, friends and those who had the privilege of knowing him.

Randy was preceded in death by his father Johnnie Williams, brother Johnathan Williams and his grandparents.

Randy attended Portsmouth High School, where he laid the foundation for a lifetime of achievements. He proudly served in the United States Navy for four years, embodying the spirit of duty and honor.

Following his military service, Randy dedicated over 30 years of his professional life to Mast Global Technologies / LBrands. His commitment and loyalty were unwavering, and his contributions were invaluable to the company.

Randy's faith was an integral part of his life. He found solace and strength in his spiritual journey, and his devotion was evident through his involvement at Pleasant Green Baptist Church in Portsmouth, Ohio where he was raised.

Later in life, he joined Fresh Oil Christian Center in Columbus, Ohio under the leadership of Apostle Dr. Kelvin Parker, Sr. and First Lady Tawana L. Parker. Randy faithfully served as a Deacon in the church, exemplifying his deep-rooted beliefs.

Randy and his wife were always having fun and enjoying special moments. He enjoyed spending time with his family and bonding with his only son Micheal Williams especially over sports where they had opposing teams, as Randy never swayed from being a Spurs and Rams fan. During the games he and his sister Terri would text back and forth on how the game was going. Once the game was over on Sunday's he made his weekly call to his mom, laughing and giving that week's updates.

He lived life to the fullest enjoying love, humor (especially his jokes), traveling, sports, quiet time and with a hint of sarcasm, just enough to keep you on your toes. He and his sister Cindy shared funny moments that had both of them bursting with laughter. Hmmm, we will have to ask Cindy about those jokes (LOL).
