Officer Randal D. Simmons, affectionately known as Randy, who was tragically killed in the line of duty on February 7, 2008. was a devoted husband and father, a dedicated police officer, a committed servant of the community, a minister, a mentor, a loyal friend and a faithful man of God. He worked tirelessly to help improve the lives of others. He spent countless hours interacting with inner-city children and building trust and long-lasting relationships with their families. The children often referred to him as their godfather or uncle. Randy believed that if enough people volunteered just a little of their time to help the less fortunate and disadvantaged, we could stop the cycle of violence and poverty that plagued them and change their behavior, attitudes and outlook on life. His life will forever be a testimony of love, hope, commitment and faith.
Randy is no longer with us, but he will be remembered for many years to come because of the impact he had in our communities and the legacy he has left behind. In an effort to continue to fulfill Randy’s passion and dream of a better tomorrow for children throughout the world, the Randal D. Simmons Outreach Foundation was established. Our primary goals are to empower the community by providing support in the areas of Economic Development, Education, Health and Wellness and Global Outreach.
