Randall F. Sharp


Randall Floyd Sharp, age 60 of Malvern, died Wednesday, June 24, 2015 in Little Rock.  He was born in Malvern on October 31, 1954 to Mary Connie Smith Sharp and the late Floyd Ernest Sharp.  Reared and receiving his early education in Bedford, Indiana, he graduated in 1973 from Bedford High School.  He then went on to become a LPTN, receiving his schooling through the State of Arkansas.  He retired after nearly 30 years with the state as LPTN Supervisor.  For almost eight years, he worked for Goodwill Industries in Benton in the donations department.  He was of the Christian faith and was Baptist by denomination. 

Randall loved his family above all else.  His father, who preceded him in death by three months, was his best friend.  They loved to hunt and fish together.  He had a giving heart, and helped many people in need throughout his lifetime.  An avid outdoorsman and nature lover, he enjoyed going to the beach, riding his motorcycle and four-wheeler, and looking for adventure.  He was a free spirit, a thrill seeker, and loved a challenge.  Randall was a hard worker and was proud of the fact that he kept himself very physically fit.

He is survived by his mother, Mary Connie Sharp of Malvern; by his sisters, Pam Evans (Bill) and Vickie Walker (Jon) all of Bedford, Indiana; nieces and nephews, Joshua Walker (Kriston), Jennifer Walker (Duany “Doc” Duany), Chelsie Walker, Winter Robbins (Tyson), Chloe Evans, Payton and Riley Walker, Ella Kate Robbins, and one due in the fall; and two close friends who he loved like his own, Billy Cooper and Leslie Price.

Graveside services will be held at ten o’clock Saturday morning, June 27, 2015 at Lone Hill Cemetery in Oak Grove with Brother Donis Smead officiating and under the direction of J. A. Funk Funeral Home.
