Westfall; mother, Gertrude Brown Westfall. Pallbearers will be family and friends. Randall or "Randy" as he was known to family and friends, was employed with Anniston Army Depot, which honored him recently in recognition of "Outstanding Performance and Selfless Dedication in Support of Our National Defense". The award was commemorated on a handsome plaque and presented to him by a large group of his dear colleagues who met at his home in celebration of his service, life and friendship. Randall was duly proud, too, of his service in other venues, notably local law enforcement and US Military. He retired from active duty as a Captain with the Anniston Police Department in 1999. He has been honored as an original member of the department's elite Special Response Team. Randall received an Honorable Discharge from the US Army in 1979 after serving his country as a Paratrooper with the 101st Airborne Division. He was decorated with the National Defense Service Medal, Parachutist's Badge and Sharpshooter Badge with a Rifle Bar and the Good Conduct Medal. Randall was an avid motorcycle rider and a prospector, panning for gold in the style of the Old American West in such places as Nome, Alaska. His schnauzer dog "Izzie" remained close to him throughout his illness. The family would like to say a special thanks to Randy's caregivers of whom he was very fond; Tonya, Gail, April, Stephanie, Vicki, Deborah, Rachel and Betty. Their abundant professionalism, compassion and good humor brightened his day. The family request that donations be made to New Beacon Hospice, 818 Leighton Ave, Anniston, Al. 36201 in lieu of flowers. Condolences may be left at www.chapelhillfh.com
