Tuscola -
Randall "Randy" C. Allmand was born on August 30, 1956 in San Antonio, TX at Bexar County Hospital to Margie and Cecil Allmand. Randy went to be with the Lord on July 24, 2017 after battling heart disease. Randy married Dorothy Ann Cupps "Tootie" on July 14, 1999. They were happily married for Eighteen years.

He was preceded in death by his parents Charles Cecil and Margie Rosella (Kelley) Allmand and his Grandparents Charlie and Margie (Johnson) Allmand.

Randy is survived by his wife, his sisters and spouses, Ava and Dave Haggerton, Diane and Kenneth Norman. Randy is also survived by four children and their spouses, Marissa and Heladio Gonzalez, Robert and Tana Allmand, Stephania and Jeremy Salge, and Justin Heiser. He was blessed with thirteen grandchildren and one great grandchild.

Randy grew up in South Taylor County and graduated from Jim Ned High School in 1974. He became business partners with his Dad, where they farmed and ranched most of his life. The two also ran the first cotton gin in Tuscola, forming life long friendships in the community.

Randy had a passion for Western Swing and he was Bob Wills' biggest fan. Tootie said "He danced many miles and often". "Lets cut a Rug", to many of his favorites, such as Milk Cow Blues and songs by Jody Nix. He loved to improvise his own words to popular songs and in return would bring laughter to many.

Randy was blessed with a gift of laughter and could make light out of any situation. He had a very vivid descriptive memory that could capture your attention as if you were living that memory with him.

He was a strong, Christian, family man who loved all his family. He cherished moments spent with his grandchildren, making them laugh, teaching them things and loving each one of them unconditionally. He never met a stranger and could talk for hours about the "Good O'l Days". Randy loved hard and will be missed very much, by many. If he were here right now, he would tell us all, "HAPPYTRAILS, UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN!!"

Presented by friends and family at his Memorial on July 29, 2017 at the Tuscola Community Center in Tuscola, Texas.
