Obituary of Randy Williams
Randy Craig Williams went to be with his Lord and Savior on April 9, 2018. He was born in South Gate, CA on November 14, 1956 to Mel and Jean Williams. He was preceded in death by his loving mother, Norma Jean Williams, and his beloved wife, Claire Williams.
He was on staff with Young Life for four years in CA. Randy received his degree in marketing and business from Hayward State and a Masters in counseling (licensed marriage and family therapist) from Azusa Pacific. In 1988, he and Claire moved to Bellingham, WA from Fremont, CA and he was instrumental in starting Discovery Counseling Center and spent three decades there.
One of his favorite places to go was Sun River and Bend, OR with Claire on vacations. Words cannot express his LOVE for baseball, he was like a kid in a candy store two years ago when he got to tour the SF Giants spring training facility. He is well known in Bellingham for coaching Cal Ripkin and Babe Ruth leagues.
He is survived by his father, Mel Williams; sister, Vickie Mickelson; son, Ryan (Jessica) Williams; daughter, Kimberly (Justin) Goldston; granddaughter, Dillon Goldston; soon to be grandson, Warren Craig Goldston; aunt, Joan (Ed) Troy; cousins, Glen and Shelli Watson; and numerous other nieces, nephews, and cousins.
You are all invited to join family and friends on Wednesday, April 25 at 3PM at Cornwall Church (4518 Northwest Dr, Bellingham, WA 98226).
