Stephen D. Randall, of Milton, formerly  of Falmouth Foreside, ME, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, October 29th after a battle with lung cancer.  He was the beloved husband of Leslie S. Randall, loving brother of Lynde C. Randall of Yarmouth, ME, the late Clinton D. Randall of New Gloucester, ME, brother-in-law to Kathy Lanphere of South Bend, IN, and Diane Randall of Mechanics Falls, ME.  Steve was the devoted father of Stephanie C. Randall of Braintree, Richard Randall and his wife Marianne of Walpole and Sandra Dunnington and her husband George of Milton.  He is also survived by six grandchildren; Morgan Randall and her husband Michael Hurwitz, Rachel Randall, Jason and Alicia Burgess, Samuel and Annabel Dunnington, three grand-dogs and three grand-cats.

Steve was a proud member of the US Navy before becoming an accountant and devoted employee of Duane’s Lumberyard in Quincy, MA.  He continued there until he started his own vending business in 1980.  Additionally, he served on the Board of Directors of the South Shore Recovery Home for many years and actively volunteered for Habitat for Humanity and the Milton Food Pantry.  Steve could also very often be found helping others in the neighborhood with whatever their needs might be – from handyman specials to snow blowing driveways.

Steve grew up on the water and had a deep love for sailing and any type of boating.  He and his wife were active members of the South Shore Yacht Club for many years, until trading their motor boat for a camping 5th wheel trailer and traveling around the country.  They enjoyed many wonderful trips in their 50 wonderful years of marriage.
