Lenell was born and raised in White County where he farmed for many years along with his son, Jeff. They worked the farm together side by side, and you rarely saw one without the other or one always on a tractor. In conjunction with farming, he was employed at McCords in Cookeville over 30 years and Federal Mogul in Sparta for 15 years.
Lenell was a member of Plainview Freewill Baptist Church for 48 years where he also was the song leader. He was passionate about many things such as his farming, leading singing at his church, and enjoying time with his grandchildren. He was also known for being able to cook a down -home-country breakfast with all the fixins especially around Christmas time. When he was not farming or at home spoiling his bride, Carolyn, you would occasionally find him at Geer's Grocery where he would swap stories with his friends and neighbors. Lenell had a deep love for God, his family, the church, and his community.
He is survived by his wife of 53 years Norma Carolyn Daniels Randolph; a son and daughter in law Jeff and Amanda Austin Randolph; and two grandchildren Nathaniel and Marissa. He is also survived by three sister in laws; Jean Ann (Kenneth) Weaver, Dot Randolph, Joyce Randolph; and brother in law Donnie (Donisa) Daniels.
Officiating the service will be Gary Humphrey. Pall bearers will be Paul and Teddy Stockton, Kenneth Weaver, Donnie Daniels, Charlie Curtiss, Jeff Moore and honorary pall bearers Randy Wallace and Johnathan Demps. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to Plainview Cemetery at Cassville.
Lenell will be deeply missed by his family and friends, but they take comfort in knowing that he is in the arms of Jesus- rejoicing, shouting, and leading the saints in songs of praise to the Father.
Due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic, the family will hold a Celebration of Life for Mr. Randolph at a later date.
