January 24, 1958 – November 20, 2019
Reginald Randolph passed away peacefully at the age of 61on Wednesday, November 20, 2019 at Doctor’s Hospital in Greenbelt, MD.
Reginald, better known as Reggie, was born on January 24,
1958 at DC General Hospital in Washington, DC to the late Thelma Simms and Sedley Randolph, II; the last of 9 children.
Being part of the Randolph clan, music was ingrained in his soul. At the young age of 11, Reggie began to master the art of playing the guitar. In 1975, with his band, “All Points Bulletin” they released their first single Sexy Way-Pretty Legs. The group went on to release four more singles every year until 1979 including Chase the Pusher, Funky Bottom, Walk That Walk and Get Up Get
In August 1984, Reggie married Theresa Couser and of that union they had four boys; Devonne, David, Deondre and Derrick. During this time, Reggie began his career in security with the DC Department of Corrections. After 16 years, he moved on to work in Lost Prevention for the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel where he finished his career as a Meeting Concierge and was affectionately known as “The Mayor of Wardman Tower.”
In addition to having a full time job, Reggie began working at The Meeting Place in the late 90’s where he met his life-partner, Tamara (aka Tammy) Yeldell. One of his favorite past-times was to take long drives with Tammy while listening to music-their quiet time.
Reggie loved his family with his whole heart, he loved to sing and he loved to EAT. But music was his passion. Before his diagnosis, Reggie reignited his passion and began playing with a go-go/cover band call “The Last Band.” The best bassist in town.
Reggie leaves to cherish his memory: his loving and devoted
life-partner, Tamara Yeldell; his four sons, Devonne, David, Deondre and Derrick; his grandchildren, Lakiya Cassamajor, Rashad Lafelt Price, Jada Lauren Vaughn, Lyonn Davae Livingston and Delano Detarius Livingston; his siblings, Sedley (Agnes), Charles (Sue), Leonard [Vita), Thurman, Cynthia, Anthony, Thelma Ann; Dominque and Nikko; is aunt Irma Brown; his only “forever daughter” Keisha Smith; many, many loving nieces and nephews and a host of family, friends and treasured colleagues.
