Randal Clayton Norris, age 65, of Celina, Ohio, passed away on September 27, 2020 at Lima Memorial Hospital.
He was born on October 20, 1954 in Celina and was the son of Bill "Doc" and Jeaneane (Bosworth) Norris of Celina.
He is survived by his mother; two sisters, Carmel Norris, Celina and Deborah Middleton, Indianapolis, Indiana; five nephews, Kyle Norris, Payne, Ohio, Anthony (Sierra) Norris, St. Marys, Bill Clifton, Indianapolis, Indiana, Charles Clifton, Indianapolis, Indiana and Donovan Clifton, Indianapolis, Indiana; an uncle, Richard Norris, Clearwater, Florida; five aunts, Shirley Blocker, Florida, Jewel Norris, Indiana, Esther Norris, Indiana, Alice Howell, Indiana and Jeanie Norris, Clearwater, Florida; several cousins, nieces and nephews; and his extended siblings, Jeff Osenbaugh, Marcia Ward, Ron Wilson, Pam Beaber and Vicki Harrell.
Randy was preceded in death by his father; maternal grandparents, Glen and Grace Bosworth; and his paternal grandparents, Alfred and Era Norris.
Randy was a 1972 graduate of Celina Senior High School. He served his country in the United States Navy. He had a disabled arm from a childhood accident that he never let get in his way. Randy always continued on with all of his adventures and he was determined to be independent and worked various jobs.
His dream was to live in Nashville, Tennessee, wear cowboy hats and cowboy boots, which were both definitely his style. Randy's dream was fulfilled by living there for several years.
As a young child he had a beautiful singing voice and he enjoyed singing publicly. He also enjoyed cruising Grand Lake in our motorboat and could be heard singing as he headed from the shore. He could always be depended upon to build a roaring campfire for the many camping trips his family took during his childhood.
In his later years you could always find Randy drinking a cup of coffee at Burger King or spending time recording his daily activities and his financial spending.
He will be sadly missed by his family, but they will cherish the enjoyable memories of his life.
Due to the National Health Concerns of COVID-19 there will be no viewing. Private graveside services will be held on Friday, October 2, 2020 at North Grove Cemetery in Celina, Ohio, with Rev. Diane Mendelson officiating.
In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be made to C.A.L.L. Ministries, 420 N. Brandon Ave., Celina, Ohio 45822.
