Randel Neal ‘Randy’ Sims
Antioch Volunteer Fire Department – South Carolina
Date of Death: September 14‚ 1998
My dad loved the fire service. He was involved with the fire department for many years. Two of his uncles were part of the founding members of the department. Firefighting was a family affair for our family. My mom and I were then‚ and still are‚ firefighters. My younger brother was a junior firefighter then. Now he has achieved the rank of Lieutenant. I know my dad would be proud of him.
My dad was also involved in his church. He was a poll manager when election times rolled around. He was a Shriner‚ Mason‚ and in the Order of the Eastern Star. He loved his community.
He also loved his family. He left behind a wife‚ 2 sons‚ a daughter‚ a sister‚ a brother‚ and 2 nephews that he loved dearly. We all miss him very much!!!
