Randall B. Lee


A Celebration of Life for Randall B. Lee, 71, of Springtown, Texas, will be held at 10:30 am Friday, September 22, 2023, at Grace Fellowship Church in Paradise. Randall went to be with our Savior on September 13, 2023, at 9:25 pm, surrounded by his family.

Randall answered to many names, including Captain, Randall, Randy, Daddy, Dad, Poppie, Grump, Beckum, Sir Samuel Beckum, Uncle Beckum, RandyLee (one word) and the best of all “Dukie”. 

Randy graduated from Carter Riverside High School in Fort Worth, Texas, in 1970, where he showcased his athletic prowess as a track star, excelling in the 120 high hurdles and 330 intermediates. His remarkable talent led to offers from prestigious institutions like TCU and Texas A&M University. In 1971, Randy was drafted and dutifully served our country in the Air Force as an instrument repairman, a role that ignited a newfound passion for flying. He embarked on flight school, though regrettably, he couldn't complete it. Subsequently, he joined McQuerry Trailer Company in Fort Worth, Texas, where he honed his skills in welding. In his early twenties, Randy ventured into entrepreneurship, establishing "Off Road Enterprises," a business where he specialized in lift kits and custom accessories. His entrepreneurial journey continued with "Lee’s Welding Service," where Randy's exceptional welding craftsmanship made him an industry standout. Beyond his professional success, he showcased his artistic talents by creating exquisite pieces, including lamps, tables, gates, fireplace inserts, and fire pits. 

Throughout his life, Randy cherished various activities from childhood cowboy adventures with his cousin, Ben Richard, to his passion for rodeo, which included wild horse racing, bareback riding and, later in life, team roping. His prowess in these events earned him not only financial rewards but also prized buckles. Among the many fine horses he owned, Eddy, a sorrel from Nebraska, held a special place in his heart. Randy's love for the great outdoors extended to fishing and hunting. He had a particular fondness for the challenge of hunting the mighty bull elk and successfully tagged numerous deer and elk during his lifetime. However, it was the camaraderie with his old friends, those he had known since elementary school, that made each hunting expedition a cherished memory.

Randy's profound love for his family was evident in the pride he took in their achievements. He delighted in sharing stories of Telea's job promotions, Kelley's achievements in nursing, Kylie's scholarship-funded college journey in stunt and cheer, and her subsequent victories. Randy also cherished Abby's passion for the outdoors, her remarkable intelligence, and her unwavering love for horses, traits she undoubtedly inherited from her Poppie. 

Devotion to the Lord was a cornerstone of Randy's life, and he found fellowship and solace among "The Knuckleheads" at Grace Fellowship Church in Paradise, Texas. Randy held certain values dear to his heart: honesty, appreciation, respect, and a strong work ethic. They say integrity is keeping your promise even after the circumstances have changed. Randy embodied the qualities of a man of integrity. 

Randy is survived by his beloved wife of 36 years, Telea; his daughter Kelley; his cherished granddaughters Kylie and Abby; as well as his cousin Ben Richard; sister-in-law Dawn Butler; and nephew Clint Butler.

Randy was welcomed into Heaven by his parents Robert and Duffy Lee; his “Li-dawg” Tippy; and a best friend Bruce.
