In Loving Memory of James Randy Hatcher

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of James Randy Hatcher, a man whose heart was as warm as the bonfires he loved to gather around with his loved ones. James departed from this world on October 28th 2023, leaving a void that can never be filled, but his memory will forever burn bright in our hearts.

James, known to many as Randy, was an avid car enthusiast. His passion for automobiles was unwavering, and he could often be found beneath the hood of a car.

While his love for cars was undeniable, it was his devotion to family that truly defined him. Randy was a loving father and grandfather to many, and his presence at family gatherings was a source of joy and comfort. He had a special gift for creating a sense of unity, especially during those cherished bonfire nights where stories were told, laughter echoed, and bonds were strengthened under the starry sky.

Randy's legacy will live on in the memories of his children, grandchildren, and all those fortunate enough to have known him. His kindness, wisdom, and love will be a guiding light in the lives of those he leaves behind.
