The family of Melvin “Grant” Randall wishes to notify family and friends of his passing on July 7, 2017. He is survived by his wife of 67 years, Martha Ann Ellsworth Randall, sons Michael Grant (Jacki), Melvin Daniel (Lisa) and John Dean (Belinda), 14 grandchildren, 53 great- grandchildren, two great-great grandchildren.
Mr. Randall was born in Pine, AZ on September 6, 1931 and came to Mesa, for school in 1946 to attend Mesa High School. He furthered his education at the University of Arizona and graduated with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. He eventually became a new and used auto dealer at Randall Rambler. He is best remembered for ownership of Randall AMC/Jeep, the #1 in volume sales for Jeep.
His love of auto racing began as a young man when he built his first “jalopy”. He and his family participated in drag racing, sports car racing and off-road racing. And many fun family memories were created at the races!
Grant, the son of Melvin Fuller Randall and Eva LaDean Grant had three brothers; Richard Burdett Randall, Walter Lyle (Skip) Randall and Rony Ray Randall. All have preceded him in death.
Services will be on Monday, July 17, 2017 at the LDS Chapel at 848 N. Westwood St., Mesa, AZ 85201. A viewing will be held at 9:00 am. prior to the funeral service at 10:00 am.
