William H. Randall, Sr.

November 28, 1939 — May 4, 2016

William H. Randall, Sr., age 76, of Albion, Pa. died peacefully at his home with his family beside him.  The Lord reached out his hand and William took it and they walked through Heaven’s Gate together on Wednesday, May 4, 2016.

 William  was born in Albion, Pennsylvania at his home in a barn on November 28, 1939.  He was one of many  children that his parents, Cash and Dorothy (Graves) Randall raised.  William was raised on the family farm and learned many things.  He especially liked working with tractors - which he never outgrew. 

 William went into the National Guards and then when he got out, he went to work for PHB in Fairview where he retired after many years of dedicated work.  William was a strong “Christian Man” and enjoyed life as it came.  He married his wife, Margaret A. Kreider who he liked to call “Tootsie”.   They raised four children:  William “Billy” H. Randall, Jr and Tobby Jayson Randall both living in Albion and two daughters; Terri Randall of Cranesville, Pa., and Tracy Carroll of Waterford, Pa.  When Bill wasn’t working and helping with the kids, he was often found tinkering with his tractors and mowing the lawn.

Besides his parents, Bill is preceded in death by two brothers:  Lester and Melvin Randall

Besides his lovely wife, Margaret and his children, he is also survived by nine sisters:  Ella Mayberry, Anne Cottrell (Larry), and Margaret Schiavone (James) all of Conneaut, OH and Wanda Bastuk  (John) of Coleman, MI; Alice Jackson (Rex) of Lake City, PA; and Marilyn Randall and Bonnie Randall and Betty Priester (Dave) all of Albion, PA and Ida Jordan (Joe) of Arizona.  He also has two brothers; Elmer (Helene) and Gary Randall  (Karen) both of Albion, Pa.  He is also survived by several nieces and nephews, Grandchildren, Great Grandchildren.

 Friends are invited to call at the Jean Evans Thompson Funeral Home at 11883 Main Street, East Springfield, Pa on Monday evening from 6 to 9 p.m. and are also invited to the Life Celebration Service that will be held on Tuesday morning at the Funeral Home at 11 a.m. with Pastor Dave Kutchka of the North East Lutheran Church, Officiating.  Burial will immediately follow at Kelloggsville Cemetery, south of Conneaut.

 The family respectfully requests that no phone calls be made to the house and memorial donations may be made to Margaret Randall who will be sending in a group donation to Regional Home Health Hospice who took such wonderful care of Bill.  The family wishes to thank them for all their wonderful care and attention.
