Harvey Franklin Randolph, Sr.

August 25, 1943 — May 25, 2021



Harvey Franklin Randolph, Sr., a retired United States Air Force veteran and beloved family man, passed away on May 25, 2021, in Temple, Texas. He was born on August 25, 1943, in Hanson, Oklahoma. Funeral services will be held at 11 am Friday, October 6, 2023, at Harper-Talasek Funeral Home in Killeen, with burial at Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery in Killeen following services at 1 pm.

Having served faithfully in the United States Air Force for many years before retiring honorably, Harvey had an unyielding commitment to our country. His service exemplified duty and sacrifice. After retiring from the military, Harvey led a fulfilling life as a dedicated truck driver. Above all else, Harvey cherished his family. He was a loving father to his two children, Harvey Franklin Randolph, Jr., and Trish Beckenham. They were the center of his world, and he took great joy in their happiness.

Known for his kind and caring nature, Harvey had a soft spot for animals, especially cats, dogs, horses, goats, peacocks, and chickens. He found solace and companionship in their presence throughout his life. Holidays held a special place in Harvey's heart. He enjoyed celebrating Christmas with his loved ones and creating lasting memories filled with warmth and laughter. Birthdays were also occasions that brought him great joy as he delighted in showering his family with love.

Harvey is now reunited with his father Robert Louie Randolph, mother Sadie Adele Farrer, stepfather Albert Levi Clark, brothers Thomas Randolph, Bob Randolph, Jack Randolph; sister Sallie Dozier; and other dear relatives who preceded him in death. Their fond memories of Harvey will forever live on within the hearts of those who loved him. He will be lovingly remembered by his surviving family members: son Harvey Franklin Randolph Jr., daughter Trish Beckenham, brother Carl Randolph; grandchildren Noah, Emma, Jake, and Zac; along with numerous extended family members and friends.
