He was a founding partner of Shaw, Willis & Witherspoon, CPAs, now known as Yeldell, Wilson, Wood & Reeve, PC. Though health problems forced him to leave work, it allowed him more time with his twin boys, whom he loved. He enjoyed music, books, and old movies. Randy was a wonderful father and husband.

He was a member of the Church of Christ of Bristol. His family was the light of his life.
