Sunset: April 8, 2021
Randolph Godwin, son of the late Viola McClam Godwin and Clyde Godwin. Randolph was born on March 2, 1932 in Florence County, South Carolina. He was preceded in death by: two sisters: Willie Ruth Godwin and Catherine Godwin Washington; three brothers: Robert Godwin, Clyde Godwin Jr. and Timothy Godwin; one daughter: Chinita Austin; and one son: Ennis McFadden Jr.
Randolph spent his life in Lake City, South Carolina, and later relocated to Fort Lauderdale, Florida. After many years away, he returned to his childhood home in the early 2000s, and reunited with his son, Ennis. They shared a uniquely unbreakable bond, and had a love so genuine, that it transcended time. While a quiet man, Randolph was very sociable, gentle, and kindhearted. He was a friend to anyone who stopped by to say hello. He found solitude in nature and loved the countryside. His passions included tending to his flowers, raising his chickens, and caring for his dog.
Understanding that God, indeed, was in control of his entire life journey, Randolph accepted God as his personal savior. On April 8, 2021, Randolph was called to eternal rest and leaves behind to cherish his memories, one son: Jeffrey Austin of Fort Lauderdale, FL; two sisters: Sadie Godwin (Eddie Hanna) of FL, Helen Thomas of Killeen, TX; one brother: John ”JW” Wilson Godwin of Lake City, SC; one daughter-in-law: Debra McFadden of Florence, SC, several grandchildren, great-grandchildren and a host of nieces, nephews, relatives, and friends.
The family would like to thank the Lake City Scranton Healthcare Center, McLeod Health of Florence, SC, and MUSC Health of Florence, SC for taking Randolph into their care.
