Earl "Randy" Lytton, a beloved husband, father, brother, and grandfather, who wore many hats with grace and charm, has sadly passed away at the Robin Johnson House on May 23, 2024. Randy was known for his dual careers as a car salesman and a licensed barber, activities that showcased his diverse skill set and friendly demeanor.

Born in Mecklenburg County, NC to the late Earl and Zettie Causby Lytton on August 26, 1944, Randy's journey was marked by love, laughter, and culinary prowess. Beyond his professional pursuits, Randy's passion for cooking shone brightly; his culinary skills were legendary as he could whip up any dish and had a particular fondness for baking delectable treats that brought joy and memories to those around him.

Randy's warm personality was evident in his role as a family man. He found solace and happiness in the company of his loved ones, always cherishing the time spent at home surrounded by family members and his cherished dog, Daisy. His dedication to family extended beyond words into action, making him a pillar of support and love for those closest to him.

In addition to his career achievements and dedication to his family, Randy proudly served in the U.S. Army, showcasing his commitment to serving his country with honor and bravery.

Among Randy's proudest accomplishments were his two grandchildren, Cody and Seth. Their presence brought immense joy to Randy's life, and he took great pride in watching them grow and flourish under his loving guidance.

As we bid farewell to Randy, we remember not only the legacy he leaves behind but also the memories that will forever be etched in our hearts. His passing is mourned by survivors who include his loving wife of 55 years, Jackie M. Lytton; devoted daughter, Kim Sturgis and her husband Shannon; loyal brother, John Gray Lytton; two grandchildren, Cody and Seth; along with numerous other family members and friends.  In addition to his parents, Randy is also preceded in death by his brother, Jerry Bryan Lytton.

While we grieve the loss of Randy from our lives, we find solace in knowing that his spirit will continue to live on through the memories we shared with him. Rest in peace, dear Randy; your kindness, humor, and love will never be forgotten.
