Randy Odom

By submitted, 07/3/24 9:42 AM

Randall Ray Odom, age 65 of Hope, AR left his earthly body to be present with The Lord on

Monday, July 1, 2024. Randy was born in McCall, Idaho to Bob and Twyla Odom on September

6, 1958. Randy was a member of Unity Baptist Church.

Randy was influenced by his father’s carpentry skills and constructed his first house when he

was 17. With an eleventh-grade education, Randy went on to become a successful business

owner. Later, Randy was so very proud to have his two sons join him in multiple businesses.

He also enjoyed giving back to the community especially when given the opportunity to help

someone on an individual basis. Those who knew him knew how strong, determined, and

generous he was. Those who were blessed enough to have known him on a personal level

knew that if Mr. Randy said it – that was the way it was.

Randy enjoyed early morning visits on the back porch with Sonya. If you were one of the lucky

ones you might get a four am phone call. He would clear his head while spending time with his

chickens, feeding his fish at the pond with his family, and working in his garden so that he would

have lots of vegetables to share with his friends. In the last few weeks, he loved sporting around

in his new 1947 Red Ford Coupe.

Those left to cherish his memory include the love of his life and wife of 45 years, Sonya Hart

Odom; his three children Shannon Odom Ramsey (Chris) of Lewisville, TX, Riley Odom (Briana)

of Hope, AR; John Odom of Hope, AR, one special daughter, Donna Reppond of Little Rock,

AR; special sons Tim Rowe and Eleazar Quiroz Garcia; seven grandchildren, Emily, Dolsen,

Carson Rowe, Piper Ramsey, Alex Odom, Asher – the keeper of Poppy’s junk and Lainey Grace

Odom; brother, Greg Odom of Hope and sister, Lisa Brown of Texarkana; and along with other

family, friends.

Randy was preceded in death by his parents, one brother, Charles Odom, and one grandson,

John Luke Odom.
