WALDOBORO — Randall H. Achorn Sr., 68, of Waldoboro died unexpectedly Nov. 12, 2021 after a period of declining health.
Born in Waldoboro on March 9, 1953 he was the son of Evelyn Wotton and David Achorn. Settling in Waldoboro, Randy as most called him, spent a good deal of his younger years rebuilding and working on any car or truck he could tinker with. He was an avid fan of racing and often raced at Wiscasset Speedway.
Randy started out his career working for Munsey Oil Company and Maritime Energy as an oil delivery driver. After many years he changed paths and started working for N.C. Hunt in Damariscotta, working as a mechanic. Eventually starting his own business Randy opened R.H.A. Auto & Truck Repair in Waldoboro. There he spent over two decades before he had other plans.
Randy went back to school. Earning his CDL license he became a truck driver. Randy finished his career working for R C Moore Inc. out of Scarborough. Randy loved driving across country, often calling friends and family to talk about his life on the open road. It seemed to be his new calling, instead of always fixing big rigs he was driving them.
Randy is survived by his children, Angela Davis and partner Timothy Moshier of Cushing, Randall Achorn Jr. of Seattle, Washington, and Rebecca Jones and husband Kyle of Jefferson; grandchildren Jason Davis, Nathan Moshier, Piper Achorn and Anderson Achorn; brothers, Gerald Achorn Sr. and his partner Bette Flagg and David Achorn; nieces and nephews, Carole Haley of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Gerald Achorn Jr. and wife Angie of Damariscotta, Malinda Achorn of Waterville, Billy Achorn Jr. and partner Shannon Stone of Liberty, Stephanie Pierpont and husband Shane Pierpont of Rockland, and Jonathan Achorn and wife Morria of Island Falls; and several great nieces and great nephews.
Preceded in death are Randall’s parents, David Achorn Sr., Evelyn Heyer and step-father Delmar Heyer; brothers Reginald Achorn and Billy Achorn Sr.
A special thanks to all those who were so helpful to Randall throughout the years. It didn’t go unnoticed.
A graveside memorial service will be held on Sunday, Dec. 5, at 2 p.m., at Shuman Cemetery in Waldoboro for friends and family.
Arrangements are entrusted to Hall Funeral Home and Crematory, 949 Main Street, Waldoboro, Maine.
