Randy Charles Morris, born January 29, 1955, died on Tuesday, September 14, 2021 at age 66. He was a friend, a loving husband and father, and a simple country lawyer from Eastern Jack. He is survived by his wife Retha of 46 years and their three sons: Jason, Jon, and Tomas. He was also Papa to four grandchildren: Maren, Jude, Wyatt, Ethan and Jack.

Randy was an avid model car and coin collector, American history aficionado, and was never caught without a book or newspaper. His love for American politics drove much of his career in law working on political campaigns as well as lobbying. He was a kind, eccentric, gregarious, loving man who made friends everywhere he went and adored his family. It feels impossible to do justice to Randy with only words because he was so much more than words (though he had many). He had a boisterous laugh, a devilish sense of humor, never passed the chance to dote on a Puppy Pal, and spoke in a language only those closest to him could really understand. He was a character, and he is sorely missed. He leaves a space nobody has ever or could ever fill because he was unapologetically himself in all ways.

His family is holding a memorial service at the Historic Eisenhower Chapel on Tuesday, September 21, 2021 at 3:30 PM.

  1. Randy was a great friend. Never to be forgotten Karen and i pray for solace and peace for Retha and their family.

  2. Remembering Randy…his wit, charm, kindness and caring for all.
    In high school Randy’s quips, humor and sharp intellect kept every conversation lively – especially when the topic was politics or cars!

    Randy’s obituary was posted on the Lee’s Summit High School Facebook page. These are memories from three of his high school friends:
    • (Scott Norwood) Rand and I had a lot of adventures together in our teens and early twenties. Good man and friend. One of my favorite memories was being at his place as he furiously called a local radio station repeatedly with the answers to trivia questions – he won a lot of prizes. We used to play poker and RISK a lot. I remember how much he appreciated my mother’s cooking since he and his father had little skill in that area.
    • (Gail Hinman) Rand was very passionate about several subjects, especially politics. He was a great guy.
    • (Laurel Kopecky) Remember that Honda that he drove in high school? My dad always came out to look at that car when Rand was over. (It was something!)

    May wonderful memories bring comfort to everyone who knew Randy. Sending prayers of comfort to Retha and the family.
    Warm regards,
    Devon Scheef & Gary Coon, and Lee’s Summit High School Class of ‘73

    1. Randy was a good friend. I remember the Honda and sitting before class talking about the daily updates from the Watergate hearings. Randy liked statements from Senator Sam Ervin. His love for politics took him to serve as head of Prairie Township for the Democratic Party in the 1972 election. We always knew he would go to law school. He was a good man.

  3. I had the honor of knowing Randy for 13 years. Every conversation I had with him (which were many), consisted of some kind of history lesson. I probably learned more from Randy than I did back in high school. He was a kind, generous and wonderful man who loved his wife Retha, his 3 sons, Jason, Jon and Thomas and who doted on his four grandchildren. I truly believe that God put Randy on earth to touch so many of those he touched in one way or another. You will be missed Randy!! Thanks for all the free history lessons!!
