Randall James Moon, born February 12, 1959, passed away on December 5, 2023, and is now with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in Heaven.

He leaves behind his wife of 34 years, Beth Moon (née Scolnick); son, Jonathan Moon; mother, Evelyn Moon; and father-in-law, David Scolnick. He was preceded in death by his father, Jesse James Moon, and his mother-in-law, Jean Scolnick (née Licht). He was a devoted husband and a loving father who provided and continues to provide incredible opportunities for his family.

Randy was a very talented person and leader with many passions. He put those talents to use, loved to benefit others, and always stayed busy. He was a Managing Director at the Berkeley Research Group, where he was an expert on ERISA and executive compensation cases.

He was also an adjunct professor at the University of South Carolina Darla Moore School of Business in the Masters of Human Resources program teaching Labor Relations and Employee Benefits. In his free time, he loved spending time with his family and at church. Until recently, he was the chair of the Deacons Board at Trinity Baptist Church in Mooresville, N.C.

Previously, he worked at multiple large companies in executive positions, including Lowe’s Companies, Archer Daniels Midland Company, and CSX Corporation in various capacities in the human resources and legal fields. Randy started his career as a tax attorney with Coopers & Lybrand and later Jaffe, Snider, Raitt & Heuer in Detroit, Mich. He graduated from the University of Michigan with a bachelor’s degree in 1981 and a juris doctor from Wayne State University School of Law in 1984.

Randy was a true competitor at heart. He played baseball for the University of Michigan, lettering on their varsity team as a freshman, when the team competed in the 1977 College World Series. He was so proud to have his name among many of the great athletes than came before him and have come after. After graduating, Randy always enjoyed rooting on all of the teams in the maize and blue.

Randy loved playing golf and was fortunate to have the opportunity to play some of the greatest courses around the world. He was also a voracious reader consuming multiple books per week at the minimum.

Randy’s pride and joy was his family, especially his son, Jonathan, and wife, Beth. He will be greatly missed by his family, friends and students.

A Celebration of life service will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, December 9, at Trinity Baptist Church with Rev. Dr. Mark Harris officiating. The family will receive friends following the service at the church.

Memorials may be made to the Baptist Children’s Home of NC, 204 Idol Street, Thomasville, NC 27360.
