Milo A. Randall, 82, passed away June 29, 2020 at his home in Moab after a long battle with multiple illnesses.
Milo was born on March 21, 1938 to Loraine and Elaine Randall in Francis, Utah. Milo served our great nation for two years in the Navy aboard the aircraft carrier USS Kearsarge. After his service he met and later married the love of his life, Coleen Dalton, on Feb. 14, 1959. He spent 30-plus years in the mining industry, most of which was in the Moab area in the uranium mines. After mining played out in the early ‘80s Milo worked at the Moab Golf Course, a job he truly loved.
Milo loved sports and bowled for numerous years in leagues and tournaments all over. The outdoors was another love, from fishing to golf, to finding the perfect rock. Most of all he loved his family and supporting his kids and grandkids in all their sporting events from little league through high school. Even as adults if they were playing, Milo and Coleen were in the stands. He loved his Denver Broncos and Utah Jazz, and never missed a game on TV.
He loved the extended family picnics and campouts. In the younger days it was a family softball game, and later, countless hours of playing horse shoes with lots of Olympia beer.
Milo is survived by his wife of 61 years, Coleen Randall, three children, Milo A. “Mike” (Sabrina) Randall Jr.; Teresa L. (Larry) McElhaney; and Keith O. (Jeffery) Randall; two brothers, Ellis and Donald Randall. Numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren survive him.
He was preceded in death by his parents; sister Vernita Dull; and brothers Bob, Royce and Gilbert Randall; granddaughter Amanda Johnson and a great-granddaughter Chloe Sims.
Milo was an amazing man and will be missed dearly.
