Lasting Memories

Charles "Dick" Dickey Randall
Feb. 25, 1923-Feb. 10, 2013
Atheron, California

After almost 90 years of vibrant life, Dick passed away on February 10th surrounded by his family at Kaiser Hospital in Redwood City.

Born in Highland Park, Illinois, on February 25, 1923, he was the son of Elizabeth Lee and Irving Randall, Sr., who moved to Los Altos in 1929. His death was preceded by that of his two brothers, Irving and Lee.

Dick attended Los Alamos School, Choate Preparatory School and Yale University and served in the U.S. Army in the South Pacific during World War II.

He married Sally Ann Childs in Hood River, Oregon, in 1948 and they recently celebrated 64 years of marriage.

During his life, he lived in Charlottesville, VA, and Moorestown, NJ, designing large store interiors for Hussman Corporation. The Randalls have been residents of Atherton since 1964.

Dick was a quiet gentleman who was a true and committed friend to all who knew him. His sense of humor and generous spirit were reflected in his volunteer work throughout San Mateo County with the Boys and Girls Club and his pet therapy work for over a decade with two of his much loved Wheaten Terriers, Molly and Buckwheat.

He is survived by his wife Sally, his daughter Susan Lee Randall of Carmel, his son Peter Winston Randall, and wife Patrice of Redwood City and their two sons, Gregory Lee Randall and Tyler Winston Randall; also two nieces, Jane Randall Barry of Pebble Beach and Barbara Randall Preuss of Atherton.

A private celebration of his life will be held in early March.
