Randolph D. Reall (November 1, 2014)

Randolph D. Reall, 77, of Greenville, Ohio passed away Saturday evening, November 1 at Miami Valley Hospital. He was born on March 9, 1937, in Kitzmiller, Maryland to Lester and Lillian De Walt Reall. He grew up in that area and later moved to the Akron area, where he lived until he moved to Greenville three years ago.

Randy is survived by his wife, Kay McCarthy Reall, a daughter, Yvonne Reall (Archer) Bagley of Knoxville, TN, three sons, Dave (Donna) Reall of Coolville, OH, Jeff (Linda) Reall of Wadsworth, OH, and Tim (Tina) Ullery of Greenville. Also surviving are siblings Lester (Maxine) Reall of Cumberland, MD, Darlene Abernathy and Gene Reall, both of Akron. He had ten grandchildren, Lindsey Stewart, DJ Stewart, Stephanie Stewart, Justin (Gabrielle) Reall, Jocelyn Reall, James Reall , Erika (Josh) McDaniel, William Archer Bagley, IV, Heather (Brandon Gray) Ullery and Adam Ullery. There are also nine great-grandchildren, Carson, Madison, Teresa, Max, Kolton, Alex, Blake, Jack and Cohen. Randy is also survived by his and Kay’s longtime dear friends Kim and Vi Gilbert.

Randy drove a truck for P.I.E., Roadway, and other trucking companies. He logged over 4 million accident-free miles, retiring in 2001. He loved fishing, going to thrift stores and flea markets, exploring the back roads and finding little out-of- the way places to eat. He could fix anything and was known for his creative solutions to problems, which friends and family called “Randy-isms.”

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by sisters Evelene Poffenbarger and Betty Webb and daughter Teresa Reall Stewart.

A celebration of Randy’s life will be held at 2:00 on Saturday, November 8 at the Darke County Parks Nature Center at Shawnee Prairie. The Nature Center is located at 4267 Rt. 502, just west of Greenville. Arrangements are being handled by Zechar Bailey Funeral Home, Greenville, Ohio.
