Raymond “Randy” Randolph Rosson, 80, of Yorktown, VA passed away on September 22, 2022 after fighting through a battle with pneumonia and COVID19, he then suffered a heart attack

Randy was predeceased by his parents, John and Kathleen Rosson. He is survived by his wife, Wanda Lemonds Rosson, two children, James Rosson (Melinda), Miranda Bagheri (Cyrous), two grandchildren, Espn and Lakelyn. 3 sisters, Bonnie Escott (Frank) of Merrillville, IN, Linda Sanders (Phil) of Colorado Springs, CO and Cindy Jurek (Russ) of Spartanburg, SC. And many nieces and nephews. 

Randy was born on May 7th, 1942 in Charlottesville, VA. He resided in Louisia, VA until he moved to Newport News in 1944. He graduated from Warwick High School in 1961

After graduation, he worked at Newmarket Bowl bowling alley in Newmarket Shopping Center, he began working in the shipyard at Newport News Shipbuilding in 1964 as an electrician and later became a foreman and worked at package pick up at Sears downtown during the day in the 70s. He retired from NNS after 41 years in 2005

After retiring, Randy spent a lot of his time caring for others. He volunteered with Liberty Builders and gave countless hours to YMCA of Yorktown hanging the flags, filling the coffee pots and entertaining guests as they checked in. He was always willing to lift a hand or help in any way to those around him. When not helping others, you could find him at home in his recliner or napping with his granddog Reese

Although it was too soon to see him go, he lived a beautiful life and left a lasting impression on those who knew him

Family will visit with friends at Bethel Baptist Church in Yorktown from 3-5pm on September 30 and a Celebration of Life Service at 5:00pm.

I wish I could be there Friday to honor Randy but am out of town. I enjoyed seeing him in the mornings at the Y, he could always make me smile. He was always willing to help in so many ways. He even helped us fundraiser for our Bright Beginnings program. He was fun to talk to and I always considers him a friend. He will be missed.

My thoughts and prayers to Randy’s family. I first met Randy and wife Wanda volunteering for the D.A.R.E. Program. Randy and Wanda both pitched right in to help everything go smooth.
