Randolph’s smile would make a cloudy day bright; he was known to have a hearty, genuine laugh. He loved to converse, laugh, and joke with family and friends; especially with his four brothers. He took great pleasure in being a fan of the Washington Redskins and was elated with every win. He loved music, especially gospel and jazz.





He loved living and believed in education: He was educated in DC Public Schools; and graduated from Cardozo High School. He received a Bachelor of Science Degree and a Masters Degree from University of Maryland, Baltimore County.





Professionally, Randolph was a Computer Programmer Analyst. He was a consultant for various organizations. He developed and maintained applications and databases by evaluating client needs; analyzing requirements; and developing software systems.

He and Lolanda met in Los Angeles, California. They fell in love and were joined in Holy Matrimony on January 23, 1988. Randolph was a devoted husband for over 28 years and the father of five beautiful children: Breon, Vincent, Marcus, Brandon, and Imani. He enjoyed spending holidays and special occasions with family members and was the voice of reason to those who knew and loved him.





On September 30, 2016 the sun peacefully set on Randolph. God called him home from labor to reward.
