Randall Stephen Smith
Randall Stephen Smith, born April 14, 1957 in Birmingham, Alabama, passed away Sunday, January 27, 2019. He is in the loving arms of Jesus.
Randy was a charismatic man who never knew a stranger. He enjoyed people from all walks of life. Throughout his life, Randy was adventurous. He enjoyed the outdoors at the beach, playing golf, riding his Harley, or sitting out back and enjoying the view. He enjoyed travel and achieved a private pilot’s license to aid in his thrill. He did not mind risk.
During his lifetime Randy lived in Alabama, Florida, Oklahoma, and Texas. He attended Oak Ridge High School in Orlando and after graduating, joined the Navy. Since then, he spent his career in various fields that included stunt work that led to playing ‘the Marshall’ and ‘Indiana Jones’ at Disney. He even achieved a SAG card (you gotta love him).
Randy owned a successful stone and brick business for many years and added beauty to many structures.
Randy met the love of his life, Karen, on March 1, 2003. He will be missed by her forever.
He is survived by his wife, Karen Smith, Deltona, FL; mother, Betty Smith, Deltona, FL; daughter, April Smith, Georgia; grandchildren, Antonio, Angel, and Angelina Gonzalez, Wisconsin: stepdaughter and son in law, Sara and Josh Baker, Sanford, FL, as well as his ‘little peanut’ Savannah (Baker);cousin, James Scott, Alabama. Randy was pre-deceased by his father John Bert Smith, Deltona, and sister, Crista Ann Kajano, New York.
Randy was a lover of music. It spoke to his soul. He had so much music to enjoy from his lifetime and had been lucky enough to have been born in a generation that spanned so many musical genres.
Randy had a soft spot for people in need. He would sometimes do random acts of kindness for strangers. Karen is requesting, in his honor, to do a “Randy Act of Kindness”, for someone. It would make him happy to know that others would make the world a better place for his sake.
A celebration of life will be held for him on March 2, 2019. Family and friends are invited to join Karen at: Half Wall Restaurant (formerly Pub 44), 1889 State Road 44, New Smyrna Beach, FL, Saturday, March 2, 12 pm – 2 pm.
