Randolph Gibson 1958 – 2020

On January 19, 1958, in the small town of Nacogdoches, Texas, Randolph Gibson, also known as Enoch, was born to Willie and Eugenia Gibson. He made a name for himself because he was so loving and funny. He never met a stranger! Once you met Enoch, you never forgot him! He loved telling his life stories and making you laugh.

Enoch moved to Atlanta, Georgia, where he raised his three infant children as a single parent ( Afryea, Kahleel, and Semone). When the children became older, Enoch moved to Houston, Texas.
Enoch’s family extended beyond his birth family. He shared his love and heart with Vicke Arnold (who gave him the name “Enoch”), and her daughter Maryam Boseman. Darlene Tarkington, and her children, Haley Collins, Devon Collins, Malaysia Evans, and, Drakkar, Jr. As well as, Juanita (Xlylmah) Gumbs, Gionna Gumbs, Marquis Gumbs Boykin, Skye’lyn and Zamira Boykin Gumbs.

Enoch loved people so much that he would feed the ones in need, take care of them, and even bring them into his home to live.

Enoch was strong and always had positive words to share with individuals. Even though he was very sick toward the end of his life, he still helped people and did things on his own. The day before he passed, Enoch mustered up the energy to drive to the beach to enjoy the waves.

Randolph “Enoch” Gibson truly will be missed. However, as Enoch always says in his Rastafari accent. “Don’t Worry, Everything’s, Gonna Be Alright.” One Love! He was preceded in death by his father, Willie Gibson, and his oldest brother, Azikiwe (Zik) Joe Dell Jones.

Left to cherish the memories of Enoch is his long-time companion, Rosalind Henderson and, his mother, Eugenia Gibson: children: Afryea Gibson, Kahleel Gibson, and Semone Gibson; 2 grandchildren: Ayden Nelson, Samira Turner: siblings John Eric Jones (Dorothy), Regina Faye McDowell (Michael), Tangela Gibson Walton: uncles and aunt: Jerry and Margie Jones, Paul Jones, and a host of nieces, nephews, and sisters-in-law.

Randy "Enoch" Gibson was such a positive person. He went out of his way to care about others, sharing his strength, wisdom, and love in ways that lifted other spirits even when they were down and out. We will never know how many hearts he touched nor how much love he spread. He was truly unique. Enoch and I use to talk about Jehovah's Kingdom and how we one day were going to be able to play with the animals together and eat the right healthy foods together with no more pain and sickness. Yes, I know he is no longer in pain; he is just sleeping and awaiting the resurrection where I will see him again in Paradise here on earth. However, my heart is still in pain! Thanks to Jehovah, I have comfort from his words at Revelation 21:4 where it says, "He will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning, nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away". I long for that day. Love, Regina Faye McDowell "Stinka"

To the Gibson family: Words, however kind, can't mend your heartache: but those who care and share your loss wish you comfort and peace of mind. May you find strength in the love of family and in the warm embrace of friends to help ease the loss you bear. Just know that you are very close in every thought and prayer. Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going- John 14:1-4 (Rest in peace Randy) Melisa Sanford
