December 7, 1942 - January 2, 2022
Floyd Earl Randolph, a native of Richmond, VA, and graduate of Maggie L. Walker High School, class of 1960. After graduation he worked at MCV Hospital, Koslow's Grocery Store, and Safeway before he began his dream job as a fireman. God had given him the desire of his heart in that season of his life and he retired after 20 years. In his leisure time he enjoyed playing basketball. He told the story that one day while playing at the YMCA, his mind told him to do a layup, but his body would not follow through. After that; he decided that his season for playing basket ball was over. The next season he entered into was being more on the sideline rather than on the court. He began imparting what he knew about the game to the next generation. He was a great coach and even coached his daughter Lori when she played in school. During this time he also was the driver and coach for the children that he and his wife Gloria kept. The remote control season was his favorite. He could watch all the different sports at one time while sitting in his recliner. Not just basketball, but football, baseball, and golf as he would switch from one sport to another. And then, if he had fallen asleep, he could always hit replay; look at God! Floyd's most important season was when he was a member of Sharon Baptist Church. While there, he heard the message of the Gospel preached by Dr. Steve Parson and received Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. He was preceded in death by Sallie Randolph, "Big Mama", his stepmother, Elizabeth "Lil" Randolph, his stepfather, Edmond Page, his mother Nellie Paige, and his father, Floyd M. Randolph. Floyd leaves to cherish his memory his devoted wife of 59 years, Gloria S. Randolph, his precious daughters, Rita Jones (Clayton) and Lori Randolph; granddaughters, April Matthews-Jones and Bobbi-Angelica Morris; and his great-grandson, Xavier Jones. A devoted cousin, Wanda Lewis; and a host of additional cousins, aunts and uncles in New Jersey and South Hill. Devoted friends; Louie and Willie, Lawrence, Steve and the crew. Floyd lived a full life with family and friends who he loved and they loved him.
