Randell Tipton Brasher

July 8, 1955 — October 9, 2022



Randell “Randy” Tipton Brasher, 67, of Benton, Arkansas awakened in the arms of his Savior and Lord October 9, 2022.  He was born on July 8, 1955 in Yoder, Kansas to L.T. Brasher and Sandra Cook Brasher.

Randy loved his Lord with all his heart.  Once he found his way to the Lord, there was no wavering in his commitment to his Redeemer.  He was a member of New Hope Church located in Manvel, Texas.  He participated in a Bible study with a group from New Hope Church via livestream every Wednesday evening, and looked forward to their time together.  One of Randy's all time favorite activities was to drop by the Starbucks in Bryant, located inside Target, where he visited with the Starbucks ladies and a special friendship developed.  Randy loved his cup of coffee.  With his Bible and coffee in hand, he would drive to Bishop Park, to spend time in prayer and Bible study.  Even on his most difficult days struggling with health issues, Randy would find strength to get out of the house because he knew it would always make for a better day.   Randy at a young age developed a love for music, it later provided him an enduring time of worship and peace, discovering gospel groups and several radio preachers.

Before Randy's limiting health issues, he loved being outdoors going fishing, hunting, or going on a scenic drive on his motorcycle with his friends.  It was often that you could find Randy of his iPad diligently working a puzzle game, in his favorite recliner-reserved just for him.  Randy also loved his food!  Preferably, "Mom's" cooking.  He would ask her regularly, "What's for supper?" laying his options and hoping to entice Mom for one of his favorites.  He knew his mother's heart- she loves to cook for others.

Randy leaves behind many family members to cherish memories of him: his parents, L.T. and Sandra Brasher of Benton, Arkansas; sister, Donna Peairson and husband Steve of Bryant, Arkansas; brother, David Brasher and wife Krickett of Rosharon, Texas; nieces and nephews:  Stephen Peairson, Jr., Jeremy Brasher, Joshua Brasher, and Jessica Peairson; many great nieces and nephews; several cousins; New Hope Bible Group in Manvel, Texas; and a host of friends who love Randy and will miss him.

Special gratitude to the doctors and staff at UAMS whom he grew so close to and the Saline Memorial Hospital ICU and Floor Staff for the loving, dedicated care they provided.  They provided such great care for Randy and we are grateful.
