My prayers are with the Randall Family. Bob was a “southern gentleman” in the finest sense of the word. He was a blessing to be around, and served First Christian Church unselfishly as a deacon. I’m blessed to have called Bob my friend.

at this time.

Dr. Randall was a staff member of Southwest Educational Development Laboratory (SEDL) in Austin, Texas from June 1, 1966 to September 13, 1976. [I was a staff member of SEDL from July 1, 1968 to November 30, 1996 (the last 15 years as SEDL’s President & CEO).] In his role as SEDL’s Director of Research & Evaluation, Bob made many original contributions to SEDL’s curriculum design process and product development as well as to evaluation research in general. His knowledge of, and contributions to, the Research & Development process were acknowledged regionally and nationally. Many students and teachers benefited from his work. Bob, we THANK YOU for a job WELL DONE!

Cindy Randall Eilertson says:

Daddy, I still miss you every day. Through tears I wish I could see your raised eyebrow and hear your voice once more. I pray that you are in Heaven with your mom and dad, daughter Becky, and your niece Pat. And of course Mom. I know you have jewels in your crown in Heaven. Be well, happy, and know you are still loved on Earth.
