Howard Randall “Randy” McClammer

1954 – 2022

Howard Randall “Randy” McClammer, 67, of Columbia, passed away at his home on July 24, 2022.

He was born on November 3, 1954 at Lee Hospital in Fayette a son of John and O’Dell Moyer McClammer.  Randy graduated from Fayette High School in 1973.  He served his nation in the United States Marine Corps and was stationed in San Diego, California, Quantico, Virginia and Okinawa, Japan.  After returning from the service he was employed with the University of Missouri Hospital, Sapp Construction and Columbia Foods.

Randy was small in stature, wasn’t big enough to play football, but tough enough to join the Marines.  He never met a stranger and was always willing to help anyone at anytime.  He loved his dogs and his aquarium full of fish.  All of his dogs were named Ginger because he said it was easy to remember their name and didn’t have to waste time thinking of a new name!  The exception was his last dog named Laramie.

Randy is survived by his mother, O’Dell McClammer of Fayette; a sister, Wynonna McClammer of Jefferson City and special friends Ron and Karen Campbell of Columbia. 

He was preceded in death by his daughter, Carie McClammer; his father, John McClammer and his former wife, Latrelle.
