Riley Martin Randall, 28, of Clinton, passed away on Thursday, August 17,2023 in his home.
Riley was born in Terre Haute on August 2,1995 to Sarah Martin and Jeff Randall.
He is survived by his parents Sarah Randall and Jeff and Abbi Randall, brother Max Randall and sisters Ava and Anna Daily. Grandparents Geoff and Nancy Martin; Gary and Karen Randall; and Janet Nysewander; uncles Mark Randall and Todd Martin; aunts July Holbert, Johanna Randall, Rachel Martin, Stephanie Martin, and Amy Martin. As well as many cousins, great aunts, and Uncles.
Riley was a 2014 graduate of South Vermillion High School and attended Indiana State University. During his youth, he enjoyed playing basketball, baseball running track and even played football for the first time in his senior year because he said, “it sounds fun,” Riley had an amazing smile and never met a stranger. He was quick-witted and sarcastic. He loved dad jokes, the movie Stepbrothers, the show Trailer Park Boys. He loved sharing random facts about space and the Universe, when we asked where he got the information- it was the Internet of course. One of his best talents in his teen years was his uncanny ability to quote Jim Carrey in “The Grinch” as well and Will Ferrell in “Elf.”
He took great pride in his crazy socks and loved his Christmas clothing. He was known to wear his Santa Suit, despite the time of year. Riley loved all types of music from Hard Rock to Rap, his family never knew what song they would open when he texted them. He loved hot sauce, he “put that s$!t on everything.” When it came to coffee, the stronger the better. Every day of Riley’s life was 4-20, and he took great joy in that.
Riley’s life changed drastically in August 2015 when he was in an accident that resulted in a Traumatic Brain Injury. He spent months in the hospital, had several surgeries and had to learn all his basic life skills again. Since then, he has had many hospitalizations, surgeries, seizures, doctors’ appointments and tried endless medications. He hated every minute of it, and we hated watching him struggle.
No more seizures my boy, no more getting mad at us when we ask if you’ve taken your medicine. May all your scars be healed; you rest without worry and your pain be gone. We took great pleasure in doing what you always threatened to and threw all your medicine away.
Visitation will be at Frist Funeral Home on Friday August 25, 2023, from 4:00pm until service at 6:00 pm when family and friends will speak about and share memories and stories of Riley.
In Lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Garrett Sands Kindness Project at The Wabash Valley Community Foundation in memory of Riley.
