Randal Breece

Tuesday, April 2, 2024

Randal O. Breece, a cherished man, employed with Proctor and Gamble for 28 years in a distinguished management position, has bid us farewell. His journey on this earth began in Parma, Missouri, Nov. 25, 1937, to parents Marvin Leo and Edna Viola (Sanders) Breece, and peacefully reached its end in Jackson, Missouri, March 27, 2024.

Randal was not only a successful professional but also a proud United States Veteran, having served in the Air Force. His commitment to his work and country was truly admirable.

Education played a significant role in Randal’s life as he graduated from Bernie High School before furthering his studies at Southeast Missouri State University. His dedication to learning and growing was evident throughout his career and personal endeavors.

Beyond his professional achievements and military service, Randal found joy in being a proud member of the Masonic Lodge. His involvement in the lodge spoke volumes about his character and values.

Randall married the love of his life Cassandra “Saunie” (Baldwin) Breece in Cape Girardeau, Missouri July 18, 1959, and remained married until the time of her passing Dec. 24, 2015.

In the hearts of those who knew him best, Randal will be remembered for his kindness, generosity, and unwavering spirit. He touched the lives of many and leaves behind a legacy that will continue to inspire.

Randal now rests peacefully but is survived by three sisters, Bea Breece, Pauline Baldwin and Lavada Oaker. He also leaves behind his special friend Carolyn Thompson who shared many memorable moments by his side, and many nieces and nephews as well as a host of family and friends.

In loving memory of Randal O. Breece are his parents Marvin Leo Breece and Edna Viola (Sanders) Breece who welcomed him into this world with love. His beloved wife, Cassandra “Saunie” Breece and his siblings ,Tom Breece, Doyle and Carol Breece, Buck; Lavern and Jean Ohr, Betty and JW Lawrence, Wilma and Sonny Baker two brother-in-laws, Buddy Baldwin and Jack Oaker ; whom he cherished dearly.
