Wilfred ‘Jim’ Randall II

Wilfred “Jim” Randall II, 66, of Quiet Dell, departed this life Friday (Feb. 15, 2013) at Mon General Hospital, Morgantown.

He was born in Clarksburg on Oct. 21, 1946, a son of the late Wilfred “Bill” Randall and Jessie (Phillips) Randall of Nutter Fort.

Surviving are his wife, Cheryle (Brown) Randall; daughter, Mrs. Darrin (Cynthia) Paul of Fairmont; and his grandchildren, Abigail Fox and Braden Paul.

He was born in Clarksburg and raised in Nutter Fort. Mr. Randall graduated from Roosevelt-Wilson High School in 1964.

Jim served in the U.S. Navy from 1964-67 as an electrician aboard the aircraft carrier USS Saratoga CVA-60, Mayport, Fla., making three Mediterranean cruises. In 1972, he entered into the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local No. 596 as an apprentice electrician, later earning his journeyman and master electrician status, retiring in 1998.

At that time he entered into federal service as a high-voltage electrician with the FBI, CJIS Division, Clarksburg. He retired in 2009 after being diagnosed with cancer.

Jim received his cancer treatment from the Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Zion, Ill. He felt he was led to that wonderful facility by God and was blessed to have been treated by a most amazing care staff of dedicated people. He was able to enjoy four years of quality life by making those trips to the cancer center.

Jim and his wife made their commitment to the Lord in 2004 and were baptized later in Zion near the cancer treatment center. Abby and Braden were his pride and joy and he was so happy to have such a successful, Christian family.

In his early years, Jim’s passion was cars and racing cars. He was a winner, collecting many trophies racing his cars at Eldora Raceway and at Dragway 42 in West Salem, Ohio.

He was a family man and included his family in his various recreation ventures, whether it was hunting, fishing, camping, boating, water skiing or snow skiing.

He wanted to share his “stuff” with his friends so they would have a fun time. He always had a new or revised joke to tell. Jim wasn’t a good visitor but he loved being visited. He was drawn to the mountains in Tucker County, his final resting place.

Jim’s death was premature. He wanted to grow old enjoying the grandchildren; he had so much to teach them.

His death was caused by a lifetime of smoking. His words of advice to everyone are, “Please don’t smoke. Don’t let smoking rob you of your life and happiness. Serve the Lord because so much peace and happiness is gained. Seek the Lord, you won’t be sorry.”

Jim’s family and friends will miss him more than words can say. Thank God that as Christians we will be together again.

Friends will be received at Davis-Weaver Funeral Home, 329 E. Main St., Clarksburg, from 1-8 p.m. today. A funeral service will be held at the funeral home at 11 a.m. Tuesday with Pastor J.R. Dean presiding. Interment will be in Wolford Cemetery, Tucker County, with full military rites.
