Addison, Larry

Larry Randall "Randy" Addison, beloved son of Ken and Gerri Addison, of Abingdon, Va., departed this life to be with his heavenly Father on Wednesday, October 23, 2013, at the University of Virginia Medical Center in Charlottesville, Va. Born on November 10, 1959, Randy resided in Lebanon, Va., throughout his childhood and young adult life before moving to Abingdon, Va. He was a 1978 graduate of Lebanon High School, and a 1982 graduate of East Tennessee State University where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Geology. After graduation, he was employed by Soil and Materials Engineering in Blountville, Tenn., before founding Addison Surveyors with his father in Abingdon, Va., where he worked for the last 30 years as a professional, licensed land surveyor. Randy loved fishing, hunting and being in the outdoors. Some of his most cherished memories include hunting and fishing with his late maternal grandfather, Kyle Price, and his lifelong friend, Billy Cross. He had many friends with whom he enjoyed reminiscing and laughing about the many hunting and fishing ventures on Bear Town Mountain and Tumbling Creek. He will be deeply missed by his loving family, friends, and surveying colleagues. May he rest in peace until we see him again in the new morning where we will know no more tears, pain, or sorrow and no more separation from loved ones. Randy was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Harless and Cora Addison; and his maternal grandparents, Kyle and Mildred Price; maternal uncles, Kyle Price Jr. and James Price.
