Randall Carl Foote was born March 13, 1972 in Omaha, Nebraska, the son of J.B. Foote and Loretta (Sturm) Foote. Randall entered marriage with the love of his life and soul mate, Rebecca Sheler on April 22, 1995. Randall entered eternal peace unexpectedly on July 31, 2018 at Bergan Mercy Hospital in Omaha, Nebraska.
Randall was a free-spirited man that loved to joke around and be anything but serious. He always had a special ornery grin on his face that lit up the room. Randall enjoyed camping, fishing, and spending time with family and friends at the famous Foote BBQs. If you ever called looking for Randall and he didn’t answer right away, you knew he was off relieving the stress of life doing what he loved best, pulling the handle of his favorite slot machine during his down time on the road. Randall truly enjoyed spending every moment of home time he could, with his sweetheart of 23 years, his children and grandchildren. They were his world along with all his brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews and extended family. Randall took pride in the close nit family that they all cherished. Randall loved to sit around a bonfire, enjoying a cold one while laughing and joking with family and friends. On Saturday nights, you could see him and his family sitting at the Corning Race Track cheering and supporting his nephew as he raced with passion. Randall steered 18 wheels down the open highway coast to coast for 17 years.
Summertime was the highlight for his wife and children as they went down the asphalt together making deliveries across America creating memories. As the years went by, he became our family “Jesus” through his physical appearance and the tender love in his heart, also given the nickname “Teddy Bear” by his wife. He was always willing to bend his ear to anyone that needed the special attention. He had an open-door policy to everyone. It didn’t matter if he had just met you or had known you for years. Randall would listen and then provide his suggestions, opinions or just to let you vent. Randall was an honest man that held no grudges or passed judgment to anyone.
