Randy Wayne Sandlin

Randy Wayne Sandlin, 64, passed away unexpectedly at his home near Eminence, Missouri, on Saturday, August 31. Born May 28, 1955, the son of Russell and Bobby Gooch Sandlin.

He leaves to mourn his passing his wife of 20 years, Elizabeth Chilton Sandlin, his step daughter Nora Triplett and spouse Tyler, grandchildren Shade and Ava of Moody, Mo., sister Jackie Weintrop and husband Brad of Creve Couer, Mo., nephews Ryan Tardino of New Orleans, LA, Andy Tardino of St. Louis, nieces Taylor Weintrop and Sarah Land, great niece Avery of St. Louis, and brother-in-law Jim Chilton and wife Susan of Rogersville, Mo., and his Circle B family.

Randy moved to Shannon County in the late 1960s. The lifelong friends he leaves behind have special memories of this unique man with a ready smile, positive spirit, and unmatched sense of humor. He attended the Eminence schools, excelling at sports, both baseball and basketball.He graduated in 1973 and continue his education at Three Rivers College in Poplar Bluff, Mo. He returned to Eminence, went to work for his parents at Pulltite Canoe Rental. He later operated Sandlin's Package Store. When the business was sold, he worked at other jobs in and around Eminence and eventually started employment at Circle B Campground in 2009, where he remained until his passing.

He retained his childlike fascination with the Ozark hills, woods, rivers, and natural wonders. At the same time he was a perennial student of meterology, physics, and space, learning and absorbing all he could.

Randy was an avid St. Louis Cardinals and Mizzou Tigers fan. He was always ready to talk sports and had many conversations unless you were a Cubs fan.

Randy was strong in his convictions and his quick wit and sense of humor served him well. He was compassionate almost to a fault, especailly for children and animals. He wore many hats, both physically and figuratively. He will be sorely missed by all who loved him and even those with whom he was merely acquainted.

A Celebration of Life will be held at Circle B Campground on Saturday, September 14, at 3:00 P.M. Please bring lawn chairs and wear St. Louis Cardinal or Mizzou Tigers apparel if you can.
