Brother Randsom W. Crowley was born in Richmond Missouri on July 22, 1946, to Francis and Randsom Crowley. He was the youngest of two. Both parents and sister, Katherine Bostain, preceded him in death. After graduating from Richmond High School in 1964, Randsom enlisted in the United States Army where he served for six years.
A father of five girls, Romonda, Tanta, April, Francis, and one step-daughter, Brandy. In addition, Brother Crowley has eight grandchildren, Dominick, Ronnell, Jasmine, LaShonna, Charles, Emmanuel, Aereille, Dionte, and a host of great-grandchildren.
For over 40 years, Randsom served as a member of the John W. Carter Masonic Lodge #180 and a Shriner for 15 years. Also serving with the Eastern Star’s since 2008, he made himself available for service. Brother Randsom gave his life to Christ and served at the St. John CME Church for over 50 years. Randsom made himself available to the community and the Richmond School District, as he would provide school supplies for the disadvantaged youth.
He would always provide stern advice for all who enquired and a laugh that would light up the world. The two very special things he would love to do, fish and bowl. Randsom loved to spend time with his family, creating memories that will last a lifetime. There is no doubt that Randsom Wilkins Crowley is with the Lord. If you ask how he is doing he would always say, “I’m pretty good.”
