Obituary: Randell Kline
January 13, 1954 – December 25, 2019
Randell (Randy) Bert Kline was born in Craig, Colorado on January 13, 1954. He passed into heaven on Dec 25th, 2019. He accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior at an early age and was baptized. He graduated from Moffat County High School in 1972, and enlisted in the US Navy, where he served 7 years. On April 26, 1975 he married LuAnn Smith, his high school sweetheart at the First Baptist church of Craig. Randy and LuAnn traveled the world together. In Jan 1980 Randy took a job at the Coal-fired Power plant in Craig, and worked there for almost 40 years. Randy coached baseball, ran the HS football chain gang, volunteered for the Pregnancy Center, and Love INC. He was on the boards of Mt Elim Bible Camp, And Craig Concert Assn. He was a member of IBEW Local #7 and the American Legion. He was always up for an adventure. He loved God and country and was unfailingly patriotic. He expected to celebrate many more birthdays, but God had other plans. On Christmas night, probably because of the Muscular Dystrophy he suffered from, choked, aspirated mashed potatoes, and passed away. There are still no words to express our grief and sadness. Randy is preceded in death by his mother Beulah and Father, Earl and sister Gayle Ruth, and he now waits in heaven for his wife LuAnn and 3 kids, Karl, Brett (Camille), and Alayna (Devon Christensen); his sister Sheila and her husband Rex and their many children, Grand Children and Great Grandchildren. He was a good man and never knew a stranger. Rest in peace, Dad. Services were held on Jan 2 at the Journey at First Baptist led by Pastor Len Browning. Memorial donations may be made to Mt Elim Camp or Colorado Muscular Dystrophy, in care of Grant Mortuary.
