A much-loved husband, father, grandfather, son and brother, Randall Lee Jamison, 69, of Floyd, Virginia, passed away unexpectedly from a heart attack at work on Saturday, 5/22/2021.

He is survived by Kathleen Jamison (his wife) two brothers, Steve Jamison (Brenda) and Ray Jamison (Angela), his three children, Jason (Kim), Marty (Megan), and Alethea, and three grandchildren: Lilliana (19), Draedon (15), and Emerald (2). He was born on 3/10/1952 in Roanoke, Virginia, and currently resided in Floyd, Virginia. He graduated from Cave Spring High School in1970 and received Architectural Degree from Virginia Tech in 1975.

Randy owned a consignment store in Christiansburg, VA, “The Designer Consigner”. He had a private architectural practice and was an AIA affiliate. He also held a position for President Clinton’s New River Consortium and was a tourism start-up director for the localities in our area. He spent several years on the Board of Directors for the Jacksonville Center for the Arts in Floyd. He married Kathleen on 9/1/1990 while living in Virginia Beach when he also became the father to the three children. They moved to Floyd in 1991 where they spent the next 30 years living, growing and experiencing life together.

Randy believed you didn’t need a traditional education as much as developing a trade or talent to feed yourself and family and contribute to the community in which you lived. He was 36 years sober and a living example of a second chance at life. He loved his dogs and Arabian horses. He loved his community and the unique places in our nearby localities and worked to serve the community in his shop. He is much loved and is missed beyond words.

A life-celebration community “pot-luck picnic” will be held Sunday, June 13, 2021 at Bisset Park, Shelter #2, from 4-7 PM in Radford, Virginia. Anyone knowing and loving Randy is invited. Please bring a chair(s) and a covered dish or packaged food to share after the music and stories. The dress is casual. In lieu of flowers, please send a donation to Ride-A-Rescue, Inc, 3390 Roanoke Street, Christiansburg, Virginia, 24073.
