JAMES RANDALL NIX
James (Randy) Randall Nix or Pastor Randy, 65, of Key West, Florida, went to be with the Lord on July 4, 2019 at 11:56 a.m. at the VA Hospital in Miami, Florida. He was born on Sept. 2, 1953 in Detroit, Michigan to the late Hollis Nix and Mary (McDaniel) Frame.
Randy moved to Miami in 1980 and then to Key West in 1998. He became a born-again Christian at the age of 17 and went on to become a Pastor/ Evangelist, devoting his life to ministry. Randy’s greatest desire in life was to serve the Lord. Up until he transitioned to Glory, he was ministering and telling the Gospel story “Jesus loves me this I know, for the Bible tells me so.” He also served in the Armed Forces under the U.S. Army branch during the Vietnam era.
His love and devotion for his family, friends, and people was infectious. He is survived by his wife, Catherine Nix; stepdaughters Lisa (John) Garrison, Emily (Chase) Mays; grandchildren Katelyn McMullen, Erin McMullen, Jordyn Mays, Tristan Mays, Cason Mays, and Zoey Mays; numerous aunt, uncles, and cousins. Randy is preceded in death by his parents; sister Sandy Banks; brother Rick Nix and various aunts and uncles. The burial was held at South Florida National Cemetery on July 8. The Celebration of Life Service will be held on Saturday, July 13, at 11 a.m. at our home Church of Glad Tidings Tabernacle, 1209 United St. A repast will follow after the service at the church.
