Rev. Dale Randolph a dedicated, loving servant of God passed from this life into the arms of his Savior on Saturday, July 13, 2013 in Durant, Oklahoma at the age of 84 years 10 months and 16 days. He was born in Gainsville, Texas to Leroy and Thelma (Edmondson) Randolph on Tuesday, August 28, 1928.
Dale married his precious Lillie in Claude, Texas on September 19, 1963. When Dale "papa" met Lillie, her three grown children were married with children of their own; he was a husband, Pop, Papa and Grandfather. It was a package deal. As a husband to Lillie, her family thought Dale would get an "A". If ever there were two people connected, it was Lillie and Papa. A wonderful example for her children to follow, their home was a wonderful place to be. Rev. Dale was a man of faith. He was happiest in serving the Lord, whether preaching, teaching the word in Sunday school, or serving others at the Clothes Connection, but most of all he was a teacher. As a Granddad Dale taught (with patience) life lessons that shaped the lives of some good kids who are now very good adults who still remember the teachings of their Granddad, and their wonderful camping trips to the lake and fishing.

Dale is survived by his loving wife, Lillie of the home; daughters, Betty Bennett and husband John of Bennington,Oklahoma and Toby Rowland and husband Steve of Fort Worth, Texas; son, Gene Percell and wife Cheryl of Bennington, Oklahoma; brother, David Randolph and wife Sharon of Tom, Oklahoma; 6 Grandchildren, 15 great-grandchildren and 7 great-great grandchildren; Numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.
