I never had the pleasure of meeting Randy in person. I only know Randy through his daughter, Rachel, whom I have had the pleasure to work with for the past three years, she as an MSW and me as a hospice chaplain. Because of Rachel I know that her father was everything and more than his obituary says. People like Randy, I like to call unsung heroes. His rewards will mainly come from Heaven, and also by watching his family blossom in the years to come. Randy left us at 67 the same way my father left our family at age 69. The shock of losing a loved one this way requires a special kind of healing from God our Heavenly Father. It is that special healing that I pray for Rachel, her mom and siblings, kids and grandkids, and everyone who grieves Randy's passing. Much love and prayers, Nathan Nordine

Randy's obituary describes so much of what I remember as a teammate at West Liberty. Read carefully and you see the description of a hard-working, family loving type of man becoming increasingly rare in our nation. A man that loathed too much attention or accolades, instead savoring time spend with his and the communities children and future. We extremely admire the Priest family and heritage, and Randy was typical, rock-solid friend that anyone could count on regardless of the circumstances facing you. We love Randy, the entire Priest family (even those we never had a chance to engage with), and our hearts are broken realizing we will not have him again here, but we look forward to "hanging out" in our eternal future with our Savior together.

Prayers and the comfort they bring for the family of a genuinely kind man who will be remembered in many ways for the many talents he possessed. First and foremost a family man, it goes without saying as well that Tri-Valley Schools/Athletics has lost a treasured member of its family, who will be forever remembered and loved.

Father God, the spirit of one of your children, Randy Priest, has answered your final call to be returned back into your hands.
I am asking that you grant the family and friends of Randy to be filled with the knowledge of Your will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of You, fully pleasing to You, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of You.
Grant that all the family members and friends be strengthened with all power, according to Your glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy, giving thanks to You, because You have qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in light.
Lord, I ask You to send Your Word of healing to all those who are in need no matter if it is through a pastor, a friend or a stranger on the street. And gracious Lord, we ask that You lighten the loads of anxiety, worry, and concern for all family members and close friends.
In Your Holy name we pray, Amen.
