Obituary

James Allen Randolph, 61, passed away on Tuesday, January 21, 2020 at Integris Hospice House in OKC. Visitation with family will be at 6:00 p.m. on Friday, January 24, 2020, at Strode Funeral Home in Stillwater, Oklahoma. The funeral service will be 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, January 25, 2020, at the Stillwater Church of Christ, 821 North Duck, Stillwater, OK, 74074. Interment will follow at Sunset Memorial Gardens.

Jimmy was born on August 29, 1958 in Sanger, California to Donald Gene Randolph and Jane Ellen Randolph. Jimmy was the youngest of four children. They lived in Orlando, Florida, Athens, Georgia, and Abilene, Texas. Where after the second grade he and the family found their home in Stillwater, Oklahoma. In the third grade he was introduced to Oklahoma State Wrestling for the first time and he fell in love. He became a wrestler through high school, where he learned how to overcome a personal struggle with cerebral palsy through hard work, a positive attitude, and determination that would last his whole life.

His love for Oklahoma State led him to begin college at the campus where he studied journalism and broadcasting. With a deep radio voice that could never be forgotten, he decided he would work in radio. He began the journey into the radio business while working for KVRO, the campus radio station, while also working at 100.5 “The KATT,” in Oklahoma City, and then 93.7 KSPI in Stillwater. He was also a D.J. at Desperados.

While working at Desperados, he met the love of his life, Lisa Marie Donoho and her son, Jesse Lynn Easom. Jim and Lisa were married shortly after on December 27, 1987. On June 29, 1990, Lisa gave birth to their son, James Dylan Randolph.

Jim and Lisa loved music and going to concerts together and spending time with family outdoors. He enjoyed the Oklahoma State Cowboys and the Dallas Cowboys. But more importantly, he loved his country. After leaving the radio business, he began a career with National Write Your Congressman, Inc. Where he made a living for 17 years, helping good Americans be more involved in the governmental process to preserve our freedoms. Jim was a member of the Stillwater Church of Christ and was responsible for the broadcast for the services every Sunday on the radio. He also was a strong family man and enjoyed watching Jesse develop a love for the outdoors as a youth and the opportunity to spend time with his grandson, Jace Wyatt Randolph who was born on June 17, 2016. He enjoyed watching Dylan grow up and was passionate about Dylan’s involvement in wrestling and baseball. He was also excited about Dylan’s talent as a musician and guitar player.

He is preceded in death by his parents, his sister, Donna Beason, and his beloved wife of 31 years, Lisa Marie Randolph.

James is survived by his sons, Jesse (Julie); grandson, Jace of Oklahoma City and Dylan of Stillwater; brothers, George Delayne Randolph (Betsy) of Guthrie, and John Randolph of Oklahoma; as well as numerous uncles, aunts, nephews, and nieces.

Memorial contributions may be made in his name to the Stillwater Humane Society, 1710 S Main St, Stillwater, OK 74074.

Jim Randolph was the guy who made me feel comfortable just being around him. Whether it was on our morning radio show or just hanging with him personally. He always had something for you. Often, he'd share one of the many jokes that he seemed to pull out of thin air or he'd give you a laugh by pointing out the absurdities of life. Both translated well when they let him loose on radio, where he was a natural with a voice that invited you along for the ride and a personal appreciation for music and life that was obvious to listeners. He was even better in person.

It is hard to believe Jim is no longer among us, but I will always cherish his friendship and the fun he brought to my life and the lives of others. May God strengthen his family and the rest of us, as we join in a sorrow that will one day turn to joy when we see Jim again. --Jim Mitchell

It's been my honor & privilege to call Jim my friend. We have known & worked together for the last 5 years at NWYC. He was always encouraging & I enjoyed our talks, many of which were about our other interests. I always looked forward to seeing Jim at our conferences & time spent together. Although I will miss Jim greatly, I know he is in a better place with the love of his life, Lisa. They're together again, hand in hand & have the ultimate suite to watch & cheer his beloved OSU Cowboys on:) RIP my Brother!

I always enjoyed seeing Jim at our Southwest Conferences with National Write Your Congressman each year for the last 17 years. Jim was a patriot and was passionate about his work of finding other responsible Americans to help preserve our freedoms and liberties. Each week all the NWYC family was privileged to listen to "Randolph's Rebuttals" where Jim would record a brief patriotic statement addressed to the potential responsible American. There were very thoughtful, passionate, patriotic and we all looked forward to hearing what Jim had recorded for the week. We all admired how passionate Jim was about taking care of his family to. Lisa as she suffered with ill health for many years and Dylan after his accident. Jim loved his God, his family and his country. I was blessed to have known Jim and I know everybody in the NWYC organization felt the same way. We will miss Jim terribly, but he has gone home to his reward.
