Randy Willis Lingerfelt
August 8, 1957-February 15, 2022

Randy Willis Lingerfelt, 64, of Hickory passed away on February 15, 2022 at Caldwell UNC Health Care in Lenoir.

He was born August 8, 1957 in Catawba County to Donald Ervin Lingerfelt of Hickory and Sue Willis Pittman of Hickory. Randy lived and breathed tree climbing and by all accounts he was the best in the business. He was an avid fisherman and captivating storyteller with an adventurous spirit, and he never met a stranger. Although he had his struggles in life, his family and friends know he was at peace coming down from that tree one last time.

Randy was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Carmie Marshall Willis and Lily Mae Newton Willis; and paternal grandparents, Keever Shuford Lingerfelt and Minnie Vernie Hull Lingerfelt.

Left to cherish his memory are:

Sons: Corey Lingerfelt of Greensboro, Jonathon Lingerfelt of Raleigh

Daughter: Leigh Anne Lingerfelt of Hickory

Father: Donald Ervin Lingerfelt of Hickory

Mother: Sue Willis Pittman of Hickory

Sisters: Michelle Cloninger and husband Bruce of Conover, Scottie Houston and husband Shawn of Bethlehem

Grandchildren: Karsyn Walker and Parker Lingerfelt

Nephews: Hunter Houston (Taylor), Cole Houston, and Luke Houston

A memorial service to celebrate Randy’s life will be held on Monday, February 21, 2022 at 11:00 a.m. in the Chapel of Bennett Funeral Service, 7878 NC Hwy 16, Newton. Rev. Neil Bowman will officiate. The family will receive friends following the service.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Bethel Colony of Mercy Men’s Campus, 1675 Bethel Colony Rd, Lenoir, NC 28645.

The Lingerfelt family is in the care of Bennett Funeral Service of Newton, 828-465-2111.
