    Lisa, Jacey and family,

    We mourn the loss of this wonderful man, who loved his family and was so good to everyone he met.

    Randy accomplished so much in his short time here and he was the kind of husband and father everyone wishes for. For him, the true treasures of his life were his wife, children, grandchildren and family.

    He loved U.T. football, John Wayne movies and was a West Nashville boy. He genuinely cared for others and was quick to offer a helping hand and always with a big smile.

    It is going to be lonely without you here with us Randy, but Heaven is celebrating your arrival.

    With loving sympathy,

    Gran-Gran & Danny Womack

    We worked with Randy for many years at Delight Products. He was the front man for Wolfe Ind. for many years and they should be thankful he was such an asset to their companies success. He was not only a very smart man, but a warm, witty , and wonderful person. I hope the family finds strength in knowing how many lives he touched and that he will always be remembered fondly. All of you are in our thoughts and prayers.

    Bruce, David, Martine, Lynn and the rest of the clan,

    Sorry to hear this morning of your loss of Randy.

    We haven’t been in contact for a while, as life took us all in different directions and different circles. But like you and many of his friends, I will always remember him as a great guy with no pretentiousness.

    I hope you are able to take solace in remembering the many, many times in our youth and later in life that we crossed paths and shared good times with Randy.

    He was always fully living in the moment and willing to share his joy for life with us all.

    Whether it was just goofing off in the field by your house as a kid with me and Bruce, playing along side him or playing against him on the park or school courts and ball-fields, boating on the river, tailgating, or sharing a brew and a laugh at Jaco’s, TheTrolley, Waxy’s, The Commodore Lounge or other places and events we met at, it was always more of a party with his presence and participation.

    Sorry I could not relay this message in person. I would love to see you all.

    Rick and Ann Jones.

    To the family of Randy Yeargin, My mom,(Catherine) and his mom, (Jean) were in PTA together since Bruce & I were in first grade (6yr old). My mom made bridesmaids outfits for one of the girls, including a fashioned from cardboard veiled hats. Randy &I went to school & graduated together. He was a prankster at times. He was such a nice & sweet man. After Jean lost Bill & Dad lost mom, my dad dated & considered getting married. He went to see her the day or 2 before she died. I went to funeral home for Jean & all the Yeargin hugged me band folded me in. When my brother Dale died, Randy and Bruce came to our home. We were at COHNS hugh reunion class of 73, 35th anniversary. I had my car fixed months later & saw Randy at Waffle house. Always a smile and hug for me. We were not close friends, but, I loved him dearly & feel like I’ve lost an extended family member of mine. I’m sincerely apologize for not being there as I live about 2 hours from Seattle, Washington, & broke. My thoughts and prayers are always with the whole family. May God bless all of you. Love always, Kathy Hornal Grace

    I’m sorry for your great loss.It’s always difficult to lose a loved one to death. I lost someone very dear to me some years ago and what brings me comfort, especially on those hard days when it gets hard to cope, is to reflect on the promises of the Bible. John 5:28,29 says there will be a resurrection and Revelation 21:3-5 says there will be a future on Earth without any suffering. I hope these promises bring you as much comfort and hope as they have for me. Please accept my most sincere condolences. https://www.jw.org/en/publications/books/good-news-from-god/what-hope-for-the-dead/

    Lisa and all of the family and his friends,
    I was so saddened to hear of “Chicken Lips” (as I called him) passing. I’m so very sorry for the loss of a great person who left so many good memories in my life. Softball has changed so much over the years, but I never forgot him or the great times we had..both on the ballfield and just hanging out at different places with all of our mutual friends. He was one of a kind and a great person. Please accept my sincerest condolences. He will be missed…
