Randy Lee Harris, 58, Russell County, KY (1962-2021)

Randy Lee Harris, 58, of Russell Springs, KY passed away peacefully in his sleep on the morning of June 18, 2021. He loved being Dad and Pop to his children and grandchildren more than any other job in the world. The pride he showed for all of them is something that can never be matched. He had many years of practice as Uncle Randy before his greatest role as Dad and cherished that job deeply as well.

He was genuine, kind, and the best father anyone could ask for. He found purpose in warming the hearts of anyone he talked to and a piece of him lives on through all of us. Randy meant more than words could ever describe. His family will continue his legacy by living their best lives and staying true to his famous words: "Nothin' to it, but to do it."

He was born November 26, 1962, in Indiana, to Limon and Alberta Harris. Randy was preceded in death by his father. Randy is survived by his children, Cristal Bell (Jerret), Amanda Lewis, Adam Harris, Andrew Harris, Alex Harris, and Austin Harris, as well as grandchildren Caiden Bell, Clara Bell, Abigail Nipper, and Carlin Nipper. He also leaves behind a mother, Alberta Coy (Kenny); brother, Robby Harris (Jan); sisters, Jeane Cucinotta, and Kathy Wright (Jeff); along with many nieces and nephews. Randy's memory will also be cherished by many friends and loved ones who had the pleasure of knowing him over the years.

Funeral services for Randy will be held at 1pmCT Monday, June 21, 2021, at Bernard Funeral Home, with Reverend Robby Harris officiating. Visitation will be from 11 until time of service.
