Randall was one of seven brothers and one sister born to Case
(Cornelius) and Edith Carpenter, on December 28, 1909 in Gate,
Okla. His parents named him Reynold, but when a teacher told
him that he was spelling it wrong he changed it to Randall.
His Grandma Carpenter always called him Randall.
Randall grew up during the Great Depression working the farm
with his father and brothers. He graduated from Rosston High
School in 1928 and moved to South Laverne in 1929 to work for
EWL Construction building the pipeline in 1930. On March 6,
1932 Randall moved to Idaho, where he worked on farms in both
Boise and south of Wilder. On May 18, 1935, Randall married
Berniece Eilleen Winter, the one and only love of his life.
On April 20, 1936 the couple had their first child, Nancy
Laverne Carpenter Weaver. On March 8, 1939 Randall and
Berniece had a second child, Randall Chester (Chet) Carpenter.
After his marriage, he purchased a small farm in the community
of Fargo south of Wilder, where he farmed with his brothers.
In 1956, Randall went to work for J.R. Simplot, where he
worked until 1974. He loved the outdoors; riding horses,
hunting and fishing with his many friends and family. He also
loved traveling and visiting friends and family.
In death, Randall joins his beloved wife, Berniece, who passed away on
February 13, 1970 and his loving daughter, Nancy Laverne
Weaver, who was called to Heaven on June 25, 1997; his
parents; three brothers, Charles, Harold and Leslie Carpenter;
and one sister, Mary Graber.

Ann Carpenter and son-in-law Bobby Laverne Weaver; six
grandchildren, Lisa Annette Fitting, Mitzi Le Ann DeShone,

and honor. Memorials may be made to Susan G. Komen Breast
