Easley, Randall “Randy” E. (Rock Spring)

A carpenter, church planter and servant to all

Saturday, March 28, 2020
Randall “Randy” E. Easley, 69, of Rock Spring, passed away on Thursday, March 26, 2020.  Randy was born Sept. 13, 1950 in Chattanooga to the late Bill Easley and Jean Easley Earhart.  

After graduating from East Ridge High School, he attended both North Georgia Military College in Dahlonega, Ga. and UTC.  Randy loved building things and joined the Carpenter’s Union soon after marrying his wife of 49 years, Ginger Waller Easley.  He then helped construct Sequoyah Nuclear Plant, later entering the Health Physics program with TVA, and finally retiring from the RadCon Division at Sequoyah in 2006.

After dedicating his life to Christ, Randy also served as a church planter for the local Baptist Association in North Georgia, having assisted in a new church plant in Ft. Oglethorpe.  If one word could describe Randy it would be “servant.”  He wanted to meet the needs of others, either by fixing their computers, one of his favorite hobbies, mowing the neighbors yards or simply sharing his candy stash with everyone at church.  

Randy loved and spoiled their pet Yorkie, Rascal who accompanied them almost everywhere.

Randy is survived by wife, Ginger; daughter and son-in-law, Cheryl and Kevin McCurdy; and sons and daughters-in-law, R. Scott and Brandy Easley and Dr. Michael and Monica Easley.  He was the proud “gramps” to Ashley Easley Pace, Aaron, Ryan and Nick McCurdy, as well as Lexi, Morgyn and Mariana Easley.  Randy’s sister, Debbie Bullard, also survives him, along with numerous cousins in Mississippi.

There will be a memorial service, a celebration of life at Oakwood Baptist Church in Chickamauga to be announced after the mandatory quarantine is lifted, due to the Coronavirus.

Arrangements are by Heritage Funeral Home & Crematory, Battlefield Parkway.
