Randall (Randy)'s Story

He is survived by his long-time companion & dearest friend Elizabeth (Beth) Poole of Bethany OK; his father, Robert Leland Isom of Norman OK; brother, Mark A. Isom and wife Sherry of Norman, OK; aunt, Lena Earnst of Odessa Texas; uncle, Dan Middleton of Middleton Texas; 2 nieces: Nicole Cunningham & husband Russell of Norman Ok, and Noel Isom Horner & husband Chad of Oklahoma City; 1 nephew, Ty Isom of McLean, Virginia and 2 grand-nieces, Zoey & Alayna.
My brother was born with a disability that some say was his weakness. I believe it was his strength. He didn't speak much but when he did, everyone listened. He never cursed, didn't raise his voice in anger, loved to be huggedl and didn't show hate towards anyone, ever. He enjoyed time alone but he also enjoyed to be around people laughing, talking, and having a good time. He enjoyed being included. He had friends. When I was growing up with Randy, I thought he would always need me. It turned out I needed him more. I will miss my brother
