Cameron Owen Randle
Cameron Owen Randle was tragically taken from this world early Thanksgiving morning, Nov. 23, 2017. He died doing what he loved, riding his bike.
Cameron was born at Hillcrest Baptist Medical Center, Waco, Texas, on Dec. 8, 1983, to Cynthia Randle Stephenson and Ervin Randle. He was a lover of books, music, old movies and mostly of his wife, Lindsey.
Cameron grew up in North Texas and spent several years in Tampa, Fla., while his father played in the NFL. He attended games with his mother and while he had the DNA and size for football he found his passion in books. A love fostered by his mother from a young age, Cameron was an intellectual, a lover of classic movies with quirky plots and unforeseeable endings.
He attended Allen High School for four years before graduating from R.L Turner High School in 2002 after moving to Irving, Texas. In March of 2003, Cameron joined the Army and served in South Korea and Egypt before he was honorably discharged in March of 2007 at Fort Lee, Va. After serving in the military, Cameron returned to Texas and spent time working, and in his words "existing" until he met the love of his life, his lady friend, his Danger-girl, his soulmate, Lindsey. After first meeting in middle school, fate brought them together again on Oct. 30, 2010. Cameron got her attention with his smile and infectious charm. His authenticity won her trust and her heart. He made her laugh, wiped her tears, held her up and together they celebrated their biggest achievements. Cameron spontaneously asked her to form an alliance on Nov. 11, 2011; she pulled a ring from her purse and said yes.
In 2012, they moved to Corpus Christi to attend college. It was here that Cameron began his love affair with cycling. On Dec. 28, 2013, Cameron and Lindsey were married in McKinney, Texas. Upon returning to Corpus Christi, Cameron earned his Bachelor of Arts in History with a minor in Journalism from Texas A&M Corpus Christi. Following graduation, they moved to North Texas eventually settling in Wylie. Cameron began working at The University of Texas at Dallas in the fall of 2015. He reveled in his job as a Librarian Assistant III and was soon promoted to a Librarian Assistant IV, Supervisor.
Cameron's love of books supplied him with an expansive knowledge from physics to making Lindsey the perfect oatmeal. He was beloved, cherished and irreplaceable.
Cameron is survived by his wife and soulmate, Lindsey Zimmerman-Randle of Wylie, and their fur-babies: Noni and Sadie; mother, Cindy Stephenson of Dallas; parents: Ervin and Bridget Randle of Lawton; brothers: Benjamin and wife Cynthia Randle, Perry and wife Andrea Randle, and Barron Stephenson; sisters: Lauren and husband Julio Mora-Stephenson, and Samantha Stephenson; parents-in-law: Steve and Marilyn Satterfield; sister-in-law, Jennifer and husband Nathan Prall; brothers-in-law: Blake Zimmerman, Ryan and wife Rachel Zimmerman, and Chris Satterfield; nine nieces and nephews; and numerous extended family and friends.
