Obituary for J. Steven "Steve" Randolph

J. Steven "Steve" Randolph
RANDOLPH, JERE STEVEN “STEVE”, 73, of Holly Springs, North Carolina passed away at his home on January 1, 2018 after a courageous battle with leukemia.

A native of Jackson, Tenn. Steve lived in Atlanta, Ga. and Charlotte, N.C. in his youth and was a 1966 graduate of Pfeiffer College in Misenheimer, N.C. A job in publishing took Steve to Northern Virginia more than 40 years ago, and a passion for history and small towns drew him to Manassas to raise his family. Steve's commitment to the city of Manassas began as a resident of Georgetown South neighborhood, where he served on the board of trustees. Later he was elected PTA president at Baldwin Elementary School, where his two children attended school. From there, Steve went on to serve 28 consecutive years as an Independent on the Manassas City Council, from 1986 to 2014. An unlikely politician with a humble low-key attitude, Steve was respected for his warmth and honesty by friend and opponent alike. At an impressive 6 feet 7 inches, constituents affectionately referred to Steve as “the Councilman people could really look up to.”
During the 2010 Manassas City Council campaign season, Steve once talked to a Washington Post reporter about the accomplishments he was most proud of during his time as Manassas City Councilman. He named his backing of Manassas City schools; his support of the Boys & Girls Club; his involvement in the implementation of the Virginia Railway Express (VRE); and his role in the city’s partnerships with George Mason University and Prince William County. Steve was especially proud of his contributions to revitalize historic Manassas, including the Candy Factory Center for the Arts and the Hylton Performing Arts Center. Steve was also a staunch advocate for Manassas City first responders.

Upon retirement in late 2014, “Grandpa Steve’s” adoration for his three granddaughters prompted his decision to move to Holly Springs, N.C. to be present in their daily lives, where he also gave immeasurable help to his daughter Jennifer and son-in-law Mike. While Steve’s heart was with his grandchildren in North Carolina in his final years, “home” remained Manassas, Va.

Steve was preceded in death by his mother, Margaret Warren Randolph and father, William Deming Randolph. Steve leaves behind two children, Warren “Randy” (Bradley Scarborough) Randolph of Washington, D.C. and Jennifer (Michael) Greer of Holly Springs, North Carolina; three grandchildren: Mary Alice Greer, Brooke Elizabeth Greer, and Charlotte Randolph Greer; siblings: William (Lynda) Randolph of Miami Springs, Florida and Rebecca (Edward Mecsery) Randolph of Miami Springs, Florida, as well as eight adored nieces and nephews, nine great nieces and nephews and many cousins.

A Celebration of Steve’s Life with a reception to follow will be held on Sunday, January 14 at the Historic Center of the Performing Arts - Candy Factory (9419 Battle Street, Manassas, VA) at 1:30 PM with Pastor Todd Tennant officiating.

A private interment will be held at Stonewall Memory Gardens in Manassas, Va.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to the following in Steve’s memory to benefit Manassas City First Responders: J. Steven Randolph Memorial Fund, c/o City Clerk’s Office, 9027 Center Street, Rm. 101, Manassas, VA 20110
