Randall Elton Kimes was born to Helen Hudson Kimes and Willie Elton Kimes on April 4, 1956.

He departed this realm of life on July 14, 2019. Randy, as he was affectionately called, developed into a man who loved life, his family, and his friends.  

He graduated from A. H. Parker High School in 1974. He then made a decision to join the United States Navy where he played basketball. After his honorable discharge from the Navy, he joined the workforce and went to Virginia College where he earned an Associates degree in Business.  In his pursuit of his purpose in life, Randy became a truck driver and traveled from the East Coast to the West Coast. When he felt his family needed him more than the road, he retired from driving and entered the world of security. Randy’s easy going spirit, smile, loyalty, and love for his family will be forever missed. 

Randy leaves to cherish his memory: Cheryl (JeRay) Kimes, Cathy (Kenneth) Boggan, Henry (Theresa, Regal, Nia) Noye, Carey (Minnie) Noye, Bernard Noye, Betty Freeman, Gwendolyn Noye, Rose McGriffin, Jundra Kimes, Willodene Wilson, Richetta Smith, Lynda J. Clark, Aunt Barbara (Donald) Parham, Kenneth Ellsberry (life-long friend), Jarvis Banks (God-son), Shelia Lewis (special fiend), a host of cousins and friends.
