Obituary

Randolph ‘Randy’ Kevin Amos, 66, of Keller passed away Saturday, January 30, 2021.  Randy was born at Fort Gordon, Georgia on January 6 th , 1955. He was born to Dr. William E. Amos of Harmony, Arkansas and Ava N. Mitchell Amos of Clarksville, Arkansas. He grew up in College Park, Maryland, graduating from High Point High School in June of 1973. He then joined the United States Navy, serving his nation proudly from July of 1973 to May of 1975, achieving the rank of Gunner’s Mate Petty Officer 3 rd Class. Upon completing his time in the Navy, Randy obtained a bachelor’s degree from the University of North Texas. In July of 2011 he married Mary Russell.  They lived in their home in Keller, TX with their granddaughter Cameron, who he was known to color with and sometimes even engaged in a game of hide and seek. He was an avid consumer of news and political commentary and loved nothing more than an intelligent conversation or debate. He was a kind, generous, quick witted and at times, lovingly cantankerous man who believed in justice for all.  Randy was a true patriot. He had a fine baritone singing voice and sang “Blueberry Hill” by Fats Domino on rare occasions, usually with his brother, William. He will be dearly missed by friends and family, who often referred to him as “one of a kind”. He was an excellent high school football player and enjoyed art, music, and animals. He is survived by his wife, Mary Russell Amos of Keller,TX,  his mother, Ava N. Amos of Dallas, TX, his brother William E. Amos Jr. of Salisbury, MD., his sisters Laura Burnett of Ajijic, Mexico, and Lisa A. Callaghan of Arlington, TX. He is also survived by his step- children Crystal, Amber, Clifton, Amanda and Charlette, 16 grandchildren and several nieces and nephews.
