Randall was born March 9, 1972 in West Monroe, LA to Janice Lynn George and Sidney Morgan Lancaster, III, and he passed away December 27, 2022 in Shreveport, LA after battling a lengthy illness. After high school, he began a career as a welder at Steel Fabricators in Monroe, LA. After fifteen years of welding, Randall decided to go back to school to become a millwright at Weyerhaeuser and later at LaSalle Lumber. He was a member of Antioch Cumberland Presbyterian Church. In 1999, Randall married his best friend and the love of his life Nicole Cooper. Together, they built a life out of their love for each other and of their faith in God. They welcomed their first son Cainan Lancaster into their little family in October 2000 and then their second son Cooper Lancaster in July 2007. Randall had a love for working with his hands. From welding steel to cutting wood, he had a gift of designing and building anything that he could imagine. Randall took pride in his work and gave attention to even the smallest of details. He enjoyed giving his creations to the ones he loved.
