Randy L. Huddleston

July 19, 1965 - January 18, 2023


Randy Huddleston , age 57, Quincy, died Wednesday, January 18, 2023, at 4:15 am in Blessing Hospital.

Randy was born July 19, 1965 in Quincy, Illinois, the son of Lawrence and Marilyn Pruett Huddleston.

Randy grew up on a farm in Missouri and graduated from North Shelby High School in Shelbyville, MO. Randy was injured in a swimming accident shortly before his 21st birthday which left him a quadriplegic. Many of us would have folded that hand and given up; not Randy. His mind remained sharp and he had a memory like no other. He never complained. Randy loved sports. He was an avid fan of the St. Louis Cardinals, Dallas Cowboys, and the Mizzou Tigers. He was a jokester and had a great sense of humor.

Randy was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He truly believed that it was God that held his head above the water on that terrible day

Survivors include: his mother, Marilyn Bentley of Quincy; a brother, Gene (Theresa) Huddleston of Quincy; a sister, Pamela Kay Lindsay of Quincy; three nephews, James Cowart, Richard Rife, and Nikkolas Gail; six nieces, Kelsey and Carla Huddleston, Bethany Handley, Alysha Kindle, Crystal Abston, and Shamaya Slater; six great nephews, Artemis and Orin Ulrich, Azrael Cowart, Devon and Eli Kindle, and Bodhi Handley; and a great niece, Natalie Kindle; two uncles, three aunts, and numerous cousins.

Randy was preceded in death by his father; a sister, Diana Huddleston; a brother Richard Huddleston; grandparents, George and Betty Hagerbaumer; and an aunt, Lavina Nelson and her husband James.
