Randy Wayne Woods 63 of Knoxville Tennessee, after a brief and unexpected illness, went to go fishing in Heaven in the presence of his favorite people Friday, August 16th, 2019. Surrounding him in camping chairs & listening to his favorite music, his family was holding his hands, lifting him up in prayer, & expressing gratitude for his earthly contributions when he passed.

Randy was born in Harriman Tennessee and graduated from Harriman High school. He was a proud and dedicated employee of Clayton Homes for 41 years as the Maynardville Production Plant Manager. He was loved by his work family and touched many lives during his tenure. He enjoyed fishing, hunting, camping, and the outdoors. His love for these hobbies was kindled by drawing his loved ones near to enjoy and participate with him. He was a selfless man and the center of his family’s world. Randy had four children, but was a father figure to many. Randy was a master welder but also a handyman of all.
