Stephen Randall "Randy" Cornelison

April 28, 1958 — January 25, 2024


Stephen Randall “Randy” Cornelison, 65, passed away suddenly on January 25, 2024.

Randy was born on April 28, 1958 to Harvey and Alice Lax Cornelison. He served our country in the United States Marine Corps and worked for many years in home improvement. Randy was known as a “jack of all trades”, having the ability to figure out just about anything on his own and working well with his hands. Everyone who knew Randy knew he was big on helping others, always without being asked, and for nothing at all in return. He was a major Carolina Tarheels fan as well as a Pittsburgh Steelers fan! He was a humble man who enjoyed doing things out of the kindness of his heart.

Randy was preceded in death by his parents and his brother, Michael Cornelison.

He is survived by his loving wife of 23 years, Laura Cornelison, of the home. He is additionally survived by his children, Michael and Sara Cornelison, also of the home; his sister, Beverly Barnes of Asheboro, brother Lance Cornelison (Carol) of Asheboro, sister Lauri Cornelison of Asheboro, and numerous other close family members and friends.
