Randal W Brown Sr, 62, Lee’s Summit, MO departed this life to be with his Lord and Savior September 24, 2012. Randy was born in Kansas City, MO on February 9, 1950 to LaMonte and Helen Brown. They moved to Lee’s Summit in 1956. Randy graduated from Lee’s Summit High School in 1968 and married his high school sweetheart, Connie West, in 1969.
Randy worked for Butler Mfg for 14 years before retiring in 1988 when he joined with their son, Randy II, to form Countryside Lawn. Randy and Connie later formed Brown and Brown Realty serving the eastern Jackson County area. At the time of his death he was also working as a Salesman for Randy II’s current company.

Randy and Connie lived at Lake Lotawana from 1970, at the time of Randy II’s birth until 1984. During this time Randy served as President, along with several other offices, of the Lake Lotawana Baseball Association. He truly loved teaching baseball to Randy II, as well as all ages within the association. After moving from the lake to their 10 acres, two daughters were added to their family- Cami Elizabeth in 1984 and Cali Elaine in 1987. Randy enjoyed watching Randy II wrestle and later the girls in dance and piano recitals. As his children married and had children, the grandkids became a very important part of his life. Again, he was going to dance and piano recitals, baseball and softball games, and wrestling tournaments. Yearly “back-to-school” outings with the grandkids were enjoyed at various locations with Papa.
Randy was a member of the Lake Lotawana Community United Methodist Church for 30 years. His faith and his family were very important to him.
Randy was preceded in death by his father, La Monte Brown, his father-in-law, Jim West, and sister-in-law, Cindy West Ramey.
