Randy Craig Williams

November 14, 1956 - April 09, 2018


Randy Craig Williams went to be with his Lord and Savior on April 9, 2018. He was born in South Gate, CA on November 14, 1956 to Mel and Jean Williams. He was preceded in death by his loving mother, Norma Jean Williams, and his beloved wife, Claire Williams.

He was on staff with Young Life for four years in CA. Randy received his degree in marketing and business from Hayward State and a Masters in counseling (licensed marriage and family therapist) from Azusa Pacific. In 1988, he and Claire moved to Bellingham, WA from Fremont, CA and he was instrumental in starting Discovery Counseling Center and spent three decades there.

One of his favorite places to go was Sun River and Bend, OR with Claire on vacations. Words cannot express his LOVE for baseball, he was like a kid in a candy store two years ago when he got to tour the SF Giants spring training facility. He is well known in Bellingham for coaching Cal Ripkin and Babe Ruth leagues.

He is survived by his father, Mel Williams; sister, Vickie Mickelson; son, Ryan (Jessica) Williams; daughter, Kimberly (Justin) Goldston; granddaughter, Dillon Goldston; soon to be grandson, Warren Craig Goldston; aunt, Joan (Ed) Troy; cousins, Glen and Shelli Watson; and numerous other nieces, nephews, and cousins.

  3. Our dear Nephew Randy was such a joy to be with he always had such a wonderful laugh and smile. He was so intelligent and had just the right answer to any question you would ask him. He had such a great sense of humor. We miss him and he will forever be in our hearts. Knowing he is with the Lord no doubt in our mind what a christian he was and touched so many, he is no longer suffering.

    Randy was the epitome of a life well-lived, purposefully following where God was leading. He was a solid leader and what a joy to serve alongside him in the Young Life ministry. His gentle nature and great sense of humor impacted many youth in the Fremont, CA ministry. Dedication, intentionality, and wisdom were the hallmarks of both the life he lived and in every ministry in which he served. The ripples of his casted pebble in the pond of life are far reaching and long lasting. Rest in peace faihful servant and friend.
