Born in Trinidad, West Indies in 1925 to Frederick and Estella Serrette, the sea called him at the age of 16 to sail the world. He proudly served with the US Merchant Marines in World War II.

Randolph was a beloved member of the Immanuel Christian Reformed Church in Wappingers Falls.

In addition to the sea, Randolph loved to sing and enjoyed all kinds of music. He loved the outdoors and enjoyed tending to his large vegetable garden. Known for his infectious smile, twinkling eyes, sunny personality and wonderful story telling, he was beloved by his family and will be truely missed by all who knew him.

In addition to his wife, Carol Sue, he is survived by his three children and their spouses, Michele and George Molnar of Westford, MA, Cheryl and Paul Dieffenderfer of Dawsonville, GA, and Roger and Andrea Serrette of Longmont, CO; 11 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren. He is further survived by two sisters, Eugena Thomas and Camilla (Lita) Riley; and preceded in death by four sisters, Beryl Sitahel, Lydia Jones, Amelia Guiland, Ormer Gittens.

Some of my fond memories of Randy involve VBS. Randy was always such a vibrant part whether setting up the classrooms for the Bible stories or taking part in the many skits involved. One of my favorite memories took place in the kitchen at Immanuel during VBS. Carol mentioned that Randy could wake himself with his snoring. So then Randy demonstrated it for me. He had a great sense of humor. Sorely missed.
