Tupelo – Our dearly beloved Randy, formally Jackie Randall Palmer, nicknamed ‘JR’ or ‘Pulpwood’, left us way too soon on April 11, 2021.
Randy was born on August 27, 1962, in Amory, MS. He was a kind and generous soul. Randy always stayed connected to friends and family far and near to let them know he was thinking about them. He was a graduate of Mississippi State University, but his heart was with the University of Alabama. Randy had a successful career in logistics and also worked with Toyota in Tupelo.
Randy loved golfing and was quite talented at the sport. In recent years, he enjoyed long rides in his Jeep with the top down and Kelly by his side. He also enjoyed his daily walks and games of fetch with his loyal companion Niko.
Randy will be missed greatly by those he left behind. Goodbye Randy, until we see you again.
He is survived by his daughter, Bayley Palmer; parents, Jackie and Virginia Palmer; longtime and loving partner, Kelly Reed; sisters, Sandra Byczek (Bill) and Cherie Judd (Pat); faithful dog, Niko; and many dear friends and relatives.
