David Randal (Randy) Bigelow passed away peacefully in his home in Greenville on June 29, 2024, with his loving family by his side. There will be a memorial service at noon on Saturday, July 6, 2024, at Avon Methodist Church with a visitation at 11:00 a.m. officiated by his pastor, Brother James Walters.

Randy was born to Audrey David Bigelow and Marion Frances Bigelow in Chickasaw, Alabama on May 25, 1952. After graduating from Vigor High School in Mobile, Alabama, he moved to Greenville, Mississippi to begin a career in insurance. He retired as a claims adjuster in 2020.

An early job as an electrician’s apprentice sparked his expertise in all things - cars, construction, and claims. Randy was the family Mr. Fix-It, a true jack of all trades, always lending a helping hand to others. Some of his past civic duties included serving as city election commissioner, being a member of the Elks Club, the Mississippi National Guard, and the board of the Lake Village Country Club.

A diehard fan of Alabama Crimson Tide, Randy had a lifelong love of sports, competing in racquetball and softball leagues before growing a passion for golf. He also contributed to the next generation of sports enthusiasts by coaching his son’s soccer team and refereeing hundreds of regional soccer games for the next decade.

Above all, Randy enjoyed cruising to new adventures with his loving wife and best friend of 35 years, Sherry, and their traveling to see family with canine companion Priscilla (begrudgingly leaving behind fierce feline Maisie to guard the palace). He is also lovingly remembered by his children Renee (David Kunian), Leslie Rigby, and Brandon Burgess (Madison May); his granddaughters Charlotte, Leila, and Fiona, whom he passionately adored; his brother Steven (Betty), his brother-in-law Larry Purser (Robyn); and countless nieces, nephews, great nieces, great nephews, cousins, and friends.

The family would like to thank Dr. Maroun Hayek and the entire staff and DRMC Hospice for the care and compassion he received during his illness.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to his home church Avon Methodist Church, P.O. Box 127, Avon, Mississippi, 38723.
