Randall Lee Thompson

March 17, 1964 - October 6, 2015 Champion Gate, FL | Age 51 Loving Husband, Father, Grandfather, Brother, Uncle and Friend.

Randall Lee Thompson, age 51, of Champions Gate, FL passed away peacefully at his residence on Tuesday, October 6, 2015 after a courageous 5 year battle with cancer.  He was the childhood sweetheart, beloved friend and husband to Dori Thompson for over 35 years.

 Born and raised in West Grove, PA, he was the son of the late Paul and Stella Thompson.

Randall attended Avon Grove High School. He worked for 18 years at Sonoco Paper Products in Downingtown and worked his final years at his favorite vacation destination, Walt Disney World as Custodial Trainer for new employees.

 Randall will be deeply missed by his three children, Matthew Thompson of West Grove, PA, Lydia Thompson of Galveston, TX and Jesse Thompson of Oxford, PA, one grandchild Xavier Thompson, and remembered by his devoted brothers Don Thompson of Dover, DE, Roger Thompson of West Grove, PA, sister Wanda Shrewbrooks of Middletown, DE and brother-in-law, Gordon Trottier of Kissimmee, FL, along with countless other friends and family whom were blessed to know him.

 Randall touched the lives of many people with his smile and generosity and maintained his trademark sense of humor all the way to the end with his political views, and the bleeping weather updates.

 Family and friends are invited to visit from 2:00 to 3:00 pm on Saturday, October 17th, 2015, at the Foulk & Grieco Funeral Home, 200 Rosehill Rd, West Grove, Pa 19390. A memorial service celebrating his life will follow at 3:00. Burial will be private.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be sent to: Cancer Research Institute, National Headquarters, One Exchange Plaza, 55 Broadway, Suite 1802, New York, NY 10006, www.cancerresearch.org

  1. I have many fond memories with Randy and Dori. I always loved having them as my own personal tour guides when visiting them in Florida. They were always so accommodating, and always made me feel at home. I will miss the laughs we had at Disney. Randy always had a smile and was such an awesome person. I will miss him a lot. God is very lucky to have him. Dori, remember in your heart you were always there for him and I know how much he appreciated and loved you. Hugs and prayers to you always. RIP RANDY……XO

  2. Words cannot express how deeply sorry we are for your loss. He was a genuine person and a dear friend. We have so many great memories from our Disney trips and we will treasure this always. He always made us smile and always knew how to have a great time making everyone around him feel the same way. When people say he was a great guy…he truly was…and one of a kind. He will be in our hearts forever…god bless all of you!!

  4. Dori and Family,

    So deeply saddened. Randy was not only a great neighbor, but a wonderful friend. After moving from Bella Trae I missed our coffee chats in the clubhouse. So glad we reconnected later on. Dori, Mark and I are here if you need anything. We think of you often and our love and prayers are with you at this difficult time.

  7. Dori, Our very sincere condolences on the passing of your dear husband Randy! When I saw him in July, I didn’t dream that it would be the last time. He fought such a courageous battle and always had that beautiful smile when we met. We pray that you will find peace in your beautiful memories of his life and your years together. Look forward to seeing you when we come to Champions Gate again later in the year. Hugs!

    Dori and his family, and we extend our deepest condolences to them all. Randall’s light will always burn Bright
    within our hearts and memories.

  9. Randy was one of those rare people that everyone wishes was their friend.. He was kind, generous, loved to live life and have fun and most of all he was an awesome husband to my friend of 40 years, Dori. I’ll always think of Randy whenever I visit Disney or go on a cruise and it will bring a smile because I was blessed to have known him. Forever in out hearts, memories and prayers.

  10. When we bought our home in Florida 5 years ago, we had no idea that we would be so blessed to have such caring and loving neighbours as we did with Randall and Dori. Over the years, we have seen the ups and downs of Randy’s struggle with cancer but have been amazed that he continued to live such a full life, always with a generous spirit and a smile on his face. We were lucky to have shared many of those days enjoying the Florida lifestyle with Randy. We will never forget all the wonderful memories. We have so much to be grateful for that this kind man came into our lives. We will dearly miss him. Lots of love….Julie, Bill, Lexi & Jackson Roth
