It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Randolph Caywood Roark of Chattanooga, Tennessee. He was a beautiful man who spread joy and happiness wherever he went, and always brought a smile to our faces along with laughter and joy to our hearts.

Randy passed away on November 13, 2022, at the age of 76 from a battle with lung cancer, but lived a long and very happy life.

He was a proud alumnus of Brainerd High School, and Belmont College in Nashville. Randy was a 25 year employee of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Tennessee. After his retirement from Blue Cross Blue Shield he went on to a productive career with Henley Medical, where he met and worked with many creative and interesting colleagues. Randy was also a longtime volunteer at CHI Memorial Hospital.

He leaves behind his beautiful wife, Carol Ann Roark; his son, Randolph Jason Roark; daughter-in-law Elizabeth Kristen Roark, and only grandson, Randolph Joseph Tiernan Roark.

We will all miss him so very much.

There will be a service to celebrate his life on Dec. 3, at Trinity Lutheran Church, 5001 Hixson Pike at Highway 153, at 11 a.m. All are welcome.

Arrangements are by the North Chapel of Chattanooga Funeral Home, Crematory, and Florist, 5401 Highway 153, Hixson, Tn. 37343.
