Randall Duncan was an amazing father, grandfather, uncle, brother, and friend to all who knew him. Born to Sophie Adams Duncan and John D. Duncan on September 30, 1950, in Mount Vernon, GA, Randall is predeceased by his parents and brothers JD, Leonard, Alton, Raybon, and sister Carolyn. Randall is lovingly remembered by his children Michael Duncan and Shea Burnum, grandchildren Trip Burnum, Randy Burnum, Alexis Burnum, and Aidan Duncan. He also leaves behind a host of the family including sisters Kathy (Homer), Frances (Mike), brothers William (Phyllis), Ronnie (Joyce), nieces, nephews, great-grandchildren, and longtime friends.

Randall comes from a large family and as mischievous children, he and his siblings were always up to something, occasionally wreaking havoc across South Georgia. They once dug a trough across a dirt road, placed the barbed wire in it, and covered it with dirt hoping to pop the tires on the school bus when it came by to pick them up.

As a young child of 5 or so, Randall made biscuits for his family’s evening meal each day. These biscuits were a source of pride for him throughout his life. He mentioned them just a few weeks before his passing. It was also at this tender age that he began to develop a fascination with music and began teaching himself to play guitar. He shared his passion for music with his children and grandchildren, instilling in all of us a deep appreciation for music of all kinds, even developing an ear for country music later in life.

A devoted grandfather, Randall enjoyed showing his support for his grandchildren and was a wonderful mentor to them all, guiding them through difficult experiences with unconditional love. He could be counted on to answer the phone day or night and to talk through even the toughest of situations. He shared his thirst for knowledge and his immense wit with everyone.

Randall’s incredible intelligence earned him an invitation to join MENSA, the high IQ society, yet he had a unique ability to share complex concepts in layman’s terms. Randall was treasured by friends and family alike and will be deeply missed.

The memorial service will be held at Georgia Funeral Care Cremation Services located at 4671 Main Street Acworth, GA 30101. Visitation with the family will begin at 11 am and the service will begin at 1 pm on July 31st, 2022. After the service, we’ll meet for an early dinner at Johnboy’s Home Cooking at 3050 Canton Rd. Marietta, GA 30066.

Randall and I met in high school and also Brewton Parker College. We we in two choruses and three bands tigether, mostly for music scholarships. My family and his family knew each other on many planes. We had one child, Petye Shea Duncan Burnum, 3 grandchildren and soon, 5 great grandchildren. His mother told me many family stories and taught me how to make biscuits. Reply to this comment
