Bobby Lester Randall

EDMOND —     Bobby Lester Randall, 80, of Edmond, Okla., formerly of Haysville, Kan., went to be with his Lord on March 1, 2013 after a long and courageous battle with cancer.  Bob was born July 12, 1932, in Oklahoma City, Okla., the first of seven children of Lester Henry and Marie McMahan Randall, and grew up in Fairfax, Okla., where he graduated from high school.

    Bob was a member of the Army National Guard for three years.  He married Barbara Lucille Brock of Burbank, Okla. on June 26, 1954, they would have celebrated 60 years of marriage this summer. He spent 22 years with Kewanee and Gulf Oil Companies.  He retired from Chevron Oil Company in 1987, as a safety and accident prevention representative. 

    Bob was a “Mr. Fix It” man and loved to do woodworking.  After retirement, he and Barbara participated in craft shows as B & B Crafts.  He was an avid sportsman and loved bowling, boating, camping, fishing, and hunting.  Bob was a 17-year survivor of cancer and was a member of the Oklahoma City Ostomy group.  Through that membership, he was able to help and encourage other ostomates.  He had just finished the LIVESTRONG program at the Edmond YWCA.  Bob enjoyed RV-ing with his Frontier Sams group, and enjoyed membership in the Teacup Chains Square Dance Club.
