Randal Dean “Randy” Foote was born October 26, 1956 in Butler, Missouri, son of LaVerne and Alice (Everett) Foote. He attended school in Butler and graduated Butler High School in the class of 1975. He played trumpet in his school years and, notably, received a certificate from Clark Terry, calling Randy the trumpet player with the most potential. Randy was also a member of the National Honor Society.
When Randy was 16 he began working at the NAPA store in Butler when it was owned by his uncles Tommy and Richard Everett. He moved on to work in and manage many different NAPA stores throughout the Kansas City metro area. At the time of his passing he was working at the NAPA fleet store in the Kansas City Water Department. Randy enjoyed playing golf, traveling, and watching MU sports, but is no doubt best remembered for his love of the Kansas City Chiefs, being a season ticket holder for 22 years. It can be said that Randy liked to have fun; “he never liked to leave the party!”
He was preceded in death by his father and a niece, Rebecca Foote. He is survived by his daughter, Jessica Foote of Lee’s Summit, Missouri. Jessica and Randy had a very special father/daughter relationship. She was his very best friend. He was proud of her accomplishments and whatever Jessica did became a part of his life also. Her friends were his friends. Her likes were his, and they shared an unconditional love that never ends. He is further survived by his mother, Alice Trammell; brothers Rex Foote and Russell Foote; the Shreve family; as well as nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, uncles, and many close friends.
