Randolph Paul Hood

April 23, 1956 — October 8, 2021

Randolph Paul Hood (Randy) was born in Los Angeles, California on April 23, 1956 and passed away peacefully on the morning of October 8, 2021. Randy was an enrolled member of the Absentee Shawnee Tribe of Oklahoma and was also half Choctaw. He was preceded in death by his parents, Mr. Edgar Foster Hood (full blood Absentee Shawnee tribal member) and Mrs. Edith Wesley Hood (full blood Choctaw Nation tribal member). The eldest of five children, Randy was born in Los Angeles, California. He was a gifted artist in many ways. He loved to draw and sketch and worked for a time as an illustrator for Walt Disney Animation. He taught himself to play classical guitar and enjoyed singing in several choirs and ensembles; in 1984 he performed with a group of choral singers during the opening ceremonies of the Summer Olympics in Los Angeles. As a child he had his SAG (Screen Actors’ Guild) card and was an extra in several films including “The Stalking Moon” with Gregory Peck and TV shows including “Bonanza!” Randy enjoyed the simple things in life - he was an avid reader, loved movies and comic books and enjoyed spending time with family. He collected beautifully bound copies of classic literature and gifted them to the people he loved. He worked for a long time at the Escondido Public Library and enjoyed interacting with people from all different walks of life. He was smart, soft-spoken, generous and kind. Randy is survived by his siblings, Flora Howe, John Hood, Lisa Burke and Richard Hood, many nieces and nephews and lots of cousins who will miss him, his strumming guitar and the baritone voice that filled the room. A memorial ceremony will be held at the Walker Funeral Service Chapel at 11:00 AM on October 25, 2021 in Shawnee, Oklahoma.
