William A. Randall, age 84, of West Jefferson, Ohio, met his Savior on Sunday, February 4, 2018 at Arbors West Care Center. Born in Sioux City, IA to the late Addison and Irene Randall, Bill was a veteran of the United States Army during the Korean War. He retired from the Kroger Co. in 1994 after 25 years of service. Bill was a faithful member and ordained Deacon of Hilliard First Baptist Church and later attended Prospect Baptist Church and presently the First Baptist Church of West Jefferson. Bill portrayed “Willie the Clown” for many years, performing in many places and loved to make people smile. A firm believer in Christ, he enjoyed visiting and witnessing to others. He received a Service Above Self Award from the London Rotary for his many hours of volunteering and helping the less fortunate.
