Allan General Randall, 90, of Franklin, Tennessee, formerly of Craig, Missouri, passed away Saturday, June 29, 2019 at a health care facility in Brentwood, Tennessee.

 

The oldest son of General and Lena Randall, Allan was born on October 11, 1928, at the family’s home in Craig, Missouri.  He graduated from Craig High School in 1946 and joined the U.S. Navy in January 1947, where he served in communications for 20 years.

 

An important part of Allan’s life was his time spent traveling the world in the Navy. He lived abroad with his wife and daughters in Turkey and France before moving back to the United States to finish his military service. After retiring from the Navy, Allan served with the Department of Defense as a computer systems analyst while living in Laurel, Maryland.  When he finally retired in 1991, he enjoyed traveling with his wife to Russia and Belgium, and visiting many national parks across the U.S. Traveling and spending time with his grandchildren was also an important part of his life. In 2014, he and his wife moved to Franklin, Tennessee, to live closer to their daughters.

 

Surviving are his wife of 61 years, Ruby Maxine Randall (nee Bell), daughters Linda (Dale) Powell, of Eagleville, TN, and Laura Randall Cooper of Asheville, North Carolina; granddaughters Laura Powell, of Franklin, TN, and Miranda Powell of Eagleville, TN.

 

Allan is also survived by brothers Phillip Randall of Shawnee, KS; Nelson Randall of Stilwell, KS, sisters Marcia Castleberry of Wichita, Kansas, Karen (Noel) Fischer of King City, Missouri, Janice Phelps of Rock Port, Missouri; and many nephews and nieces.

 

He was preceded in death by his parents, sister Delores and brother-in-law Clavel Howard, sister-in-law Wilma Randall, brother-in-law Robert Castleberry, brother-in-law Ralph Phelps, and sister-in-law Theresa Randall.

 

Allan will be remembered as a kind and gentle man, patriotic, good-natured, and devoted to his wife, daughters, and granddaughters. He was a dedicated Christian and loved volunteering for Gideons International, for whom he distributed Bibles at the local military induction station to new recruits heading off to enter military service. Allan was quiet, humble, a good listener, and ready to lend a helping hand to anyone in need. He also loved nothing more than spending time with family and sharing a meal and a good laugh. He will be greatly missed.
