Randy “Jukebox” Clawson passed away on November 10, 2020 at the age of 71. He was born December 19, 1948 in Elizabethtown, Tennessee. He was preceded in death by his parents, General W. Clawson, Sr., and Inez L. Clawson, brothers General W. Clawson, Jr. and Richard D. Clawson. He is survived by his wife of 26 years Monique Clawson, his sister Nancy M. Mereska (Mitchell), stepchildren, five grandchildren, one great grandson and many nieces and nephews.

Randy graduated from high school in Columbus, Ohio and joined the army and was sent to Vietnam. After discharge, Randy attended and graduated from Ohio State University in 1977. He earned an MBA from Capitol University in 1985. During this time, he also joined the Air National Guard.

After graduation Randy started his career at Western Electric (part of the old AT&T monopoly) then NCR, which became SBC which became AT&T and retired from AT&T in 2016. He started his career in the AT&T Training Center in Columbus, Ohio teaching computer programming. One assignment sent him to Cairo, Egypt to install computers and train users. He also won several sales awards and certificates during his career.

But he is proudest of his work with the many WWII, Korean, Vietnam, Gulf War, Afghanistan and Iraqi war veterans with housing, education, scholarships, and jobs. He worked closely with other veteran service organizations and the City of Austin supporting their furniture moves and Honor Flights. He was recognized by the Texas State Legislature for his work with these veterans.

He was also active with the Ohio State Buckeye Alumni Club and met regularly to watch the Buckeyes play football and beat that team from “up north”.

His dogs and cats were also of great importance to him. He was always taking in strays “just for a day”, but it always turned into a forever home.

Lydia and I first met Randy and Monique at Ohio State football Bowl games. Randy was a great Ohio State fan and insisted on going to these games despite his at times poor health.
We will always remember the good weekends we had at the games with Randy, Monique, and Karen Randle. We pray for Monique during this difficult time.

I will treasure the memories of our Buckeye adventures—Randy, Monique, myself. Like the 2014 National Championship in Dallas, Fiesta Bowl/s, and the Cotton Bowl (USC). Oh, and there was that crazy Desert Storm Hummer/bungie tour in the desert near Scottsdale—hold on, to your hats and watch out for flying water bottles. And your favorite Scottsdale restaurant—the Sugar Bowl with mile high sundaes.

“Time and change will surely show, how firm thy friendships,
O-HI-O”
Cheers, Randy
From your friend, Karen

Sincere condolences to the Clawson family. I worked with Randy for a numbers of years at SBC/AT&T. He was always willing to jump in and help when needed and he always managed to see the "lighter side" of most situations. May he Rest in Peace.

My Precious Brother, How I will miss you. I know you are in God's arms and have joined the rest of our family. I would love to hear you say, "Is that my sister?" or "I love you" or "Give me a Pepper story". My most precious memory: When you returned from Vietnam and we walked and talked together. I am so proud of you.
