From Benton, City, WA, US | Born in El Campo, Texas

Randall ”Randy” Ray Carville

Randy Carville went to be with his Lord and Savior on Monday, February 13, 2006, after a long and heroic fight with cancer. He was 59 years old. His faith in God was his source of strength as he passed through the valley of death, and now he is living in the Royal City, feasting at Jesus' table forevermore.

A book could be filled with the exciting adventures of Randy's life. The first chapter would start with his birth on October 21st, 1946, in EI Campo, TX to Ray and Donna Carville. Next would come the many escapades of Randy and his five siblings: stories of quicksand, alligators, shark fishing, hunting, and making fishing tackle for the family business. There would be a chapter all about marrying his true love, Kathleene, who was his devoted wife for 38 years. There was never a dull moment in their marriage which began on October 21st, 1967. From scoping out business opportunities in British Honduras, to the big road trip from Texas to Alaska and back, there was adventure around every bend in the road. Randy and Kathleene raised twin daughters on their family farm in Benton City, Washington, where they turned a patch of desert into a green and thriving farm with hundreds of animals.

Then there's the trucking chapter. Randy and his wife drove an eighteen wheeler coast to coast for ten years through rain, snow, and wind. They always found a way to visit their six grandchildren during these years, and Randy, nicknamed ''the Living Legend'', made the time to build tree houses, teepees, bonfires, and create a myriad of exciting quests with them. Randy is survived by his wife, his daughter and her husband, Elizabeth Anne and Ken Cecil, of Wenatchee, WA; his daughter and her husband, Cheryl and Pete Williamson, Bellingham, WA; six grandchildren, Malachi, Baxter, Isabel Cecil and Kristian, Noah, Naomi Williamson; two brothers, Royce Janice Carville of Grand Junction, CO, Robin Becky Carville of Victoria, TX; three sisters, Renee Jim Yamin of Houston, TX, Denise Randy Smidt of Yorktown, TX, Starr Herschel Vansickle of Victoria, TX. He is further survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives and many friends. In addition to his mother, Donna, he was preceded in his death by his unborn child, Josie.

The family would like to extend our thanks to our friends at Columbia Foursquare Church for all their help as well as to Tri-Cities Chaplaincy Hospice. A memorial service will be held at 2 pm on Saturday, February 18th at Columbia Foursquare Church at 700 Comstock St. in Richland, WA.

Memorial contributions may be made to Tri-Cities Chaplaincy Hospice House, 2108 W. Entiat, Kennewick, WA 99336.

  • Mrs. Carville

    I remember Randy and his “toothy” smile. The last time I saw him ,there was that smile. How comforting it must be to know He is with Jesus.

    Our prayers are with you and yours.

  • Kathleen and Girls,

    Laurie and I send our deepest sympathies to you and your families. I know that Randy is walking the streets of gold grinning from ear to ear as he often did. I know that our family was blessed by having been apart of Randy’s life. Many times I still tell the stories of Robert removing the washers from your lawn hoses and Randy egging him on to come out and ride a pig. May our Lord and Savior bring you peace in this time and joy in knowing that you will all be together again someday.

    Tim
