PADUCAH, KY - Randall (Randy) Kursave, 84, passed away on Tuesday, January 17th, 2012 at Lourdes Hospital in Paducah, Ky.
Born in Winner, South Dakota, Randy was the third of eight children. Known by everyone, loved by many, Randy Kursave was a staple of life in Murray. Many will remember him for his boisterous laugh, his firm handshake and his jovial nature. Firm in his faith, he was a longtime member of Northside Baptist Church, where he served as a Sunday school teacher and a deacon. Diligent and honest in his work, he was employed by Lassiter Plaster for 32 years before working at Murray State University Physical Plant. Upon retirement from Murray State, he often took odd plaster and drywall work because he loved what he did. He could often be seen driving around Murray, shuttling from job site to job site in his white pants and white shirt, with his plaster and drywall tools in the back of his truck.
He is preceded in death by his wife, Willie Mae (Murley) Kursave, and their daughter, Marilyn Kursave. Also preceding him in death was four of his brothers: Harlan, Clifford, Clayton, James Kursave; as well as two of his sisters: Darlene Clockow and Caroline Delaney. He is survived by one sister, Audrey Castle of North Bend, Oregon; daughter, Nancy (and Dickie) Turner of Paducah, Ky., two sons, Joe (and Cindy) Kursave of San Diego, Ca., and Jeff (and Lori) Kursave of Paducah, Ky. In addition to his children, he is survived by five grandchildren: Abigail Kursave, Miranda and Clarissa Turner, Austin and Alex Kursave.
