Randall William “Randy” Cotton, 62, of Platte City, MO passed away on Sunday, November 26, 2017 with his loving wife, Kay and family by his side. Randall was born August 31, 1955 to Robert William and Charlotte Ruth (Horner) Cotton in Nashville, TN.
Randy was united in marriage with the love of his life, Kay Rhoades on December 26, 1997 in Garden City, MO. As a family they have been blessed with seven children, eleven grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren.
He enjoyed fishing, flying his drone and listening to old Country Western Music. Hank Williams, Sr. and Reba McIntire were just two of his favorite artists. Randy was a hardworking man and took very little time for himself. But when he did take a moment of relaxation, he loved to build a blazing fire in his backyard fire pit, sit with his best friend Robert, neighbors and family; they were everything he could ask for.
He was preceded in death by his parents, his paternal grandparents, Martha and Marvin Cotton and his beloved canine companion, Dixie.
