On Friday January 21st, Lighthouse Trails author and friend, Pastor Bill Randles, passed away. The following is a notice from his family:
My Beloved husband Bill Randles, 62, of Marion, passed away peacefully into the hands of his Savior Jesus, on Friday, January 21, 2022. There will be a visitation from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm Friday, January 28. His Memorial Service will be on Saturday, January 29, at 10:00 am. Both events will be at Believers In Grace Fellowship, 8600 C Avenue, Marion, Iowa.
All that know him, know he loved deeply and is now rewarded with his crown.
His daughter-in-law Alexis Randles wrote, “My father-in-love, The most gentle of all giants, You were many things. Teacher, pastor, father to six, brother to many, grandfather to seventeen, author, traveler, husband of 40+ yrs—the list goes on. I know you weren’t ALL knowing but you sure did know a whole lot. Many hats look good on a guy like you. The best of them all is the crown which you received today. We are left here with questions and a crater in our heart where your laughter and tenderness filled. “Well done, good and faithful servant. . . ”
We love you and will continue to praise Him, for He is still faithful.”
Bill wrote many wonderful articles, books, and booklets that Lighthouse Trails readers have been blessed by for many years. While we know Bill has gone to a better place, we will deeply miss him and his contribution to helping equip the saints.
In the last six years, Lighthouse Trails has said good-bye to several of our beloved authors and friends: Ray Yungen, Caryl Matrisciana, Anita Dittman, Diet Eman, Tamara Hartzell, and Larry DeBruyn. With each one that passes, a little of our own hearts goes with them. We rejoice that we will see them all again because of the wonderful promise of eternal life to those who believe in and put their trust in Jesus Christ.
Please pray for Bill’s wife, Kristin, their children, and grandchildren – that their hearts would be comforted as they begin adjusting to life without Bill.
