Randy served in the United States Army. He had lived most of his life in Carter County. He was an employee of Robinette of Bristol.
Randy loved to talk about hunting, fishing, guns and his grandchildren. I know we have to go on living, but it will be hard. We will always tell the grandbabies how much he loved them.

Survivors include his wife of 35 years, Lorie Stanton Tester; a daughter, Sandra and husband Matthew Van Gerpen; a son, Christopher and wife Jessica Tester; three granddaughters, Anna Rose, Olivia Joy and Eva Elisabeth; one grandson, Isaiah Matthew Van Gerpen; one sister, Elondia and husband Charlie Ferrell; two brothers, Greg and wife Deloris Tester and Carl and wife Wanda Tester; and two very special friends, James Hartman and Tommy Chappell.
