Randolph Alexander was born on December 28, 1936 in Jayess, MS to Clayton B. and Lessie Lee Robbins Alexander.  From the very beginning, Randolph showcased an unparalleled work ethic that became the hallmark of his life. He dedicated his entire career to pipeline construction, a job that took him across the vast expanse of the United States. Whether it was the Southern states or the depths of Alaska, Randolph fearlessly embarked on countless ventures in pursuit of constructing pipelines far and wide. Along this journey, he forged strong bonds with fellow workers whom he fondly referred to as his "pipeline buddies." These friendships blossomed into lifelong connections that enriched his life beyond measure.

One of Randolph's proudest accomplishments was his 57-year tenure as a dedicated member of the Local 798. His commitment, skill, and unwavering loyalty garnered him immense respect among his peers. Throughout his career, he left an indelible mark on the pipeline industry and was rightfully honored for his remarkable contribution.

At the mention of his name, the family has almost instant memory pictures of their father and grandfather enjoying his coffee that he enjoyed so much – sweetened with a bit of honey, and also his Bluebell Ice Cream that he absolutely loved.  Music also played an important role in Randolph's life as well. His trusty guitar was never far from reach, transporting him to a world where melodies danced and emotions stirred. Whether strumming gently or passionately weaving intricate chords together, he found solace and joy in creating music that resonated with others.

In his younger years, Randolph was an avid bird hunter - a pursuit that brought him closer to nature while showcasing his natural sporting abilities. But beyond hunting birds, he fostered a sense of admiration for nature's beauty through another unique passion: collecting knives. Each blade in his collection represented a special memory for him; a gift received on a special occasion or one purchased on a family vacation.  His family relates that he took great pride in his collection, ensuring that every visit to the Great Smoky Mountains included a pilgrimage to the Smoky Mountain Knife Works, where he would add another cherished treasure to his assortment.

In addition to his parents, Mr. Alexander is preceded in death by his beloved wife of 66 years, Mrs. Linda A. Alexander and his son-in-law, Billy Wayne Smith.


His memory will forever be cherished by his daughters, Angela Lyn Smith and Sherrie (Carl) Parsons, both of Jayess; his son, Randy C.  (Judy) Alexander of Monticello and his sister, Josephine (Carroll) Thornhill of Jayess.  The legacy of their Pawpaw will live on through his grandchildren, Clayborn Wayne Smith, Lyn O. (Dorian) Smith, Devin R. Smith, Alex (Melissa) Parsons, Nita Parsons, Kayla Bay (Ryan) Williams, Grace Ann Alexander, Breelee Case Alexander; 11 great grandchildren; and expected great-grandson, and expected great-granddaughter and an expected great-great grandson.
