Obituary of Randall David Avram
Randall David Avram (“Randy”), 63, of Raleigh passed away on January 14, 2021. Raised in Winston-Salem, North Carolina by his parents Gary and Patricia Avram, Randy grew up an active athlete with his brother Andy playing basketball, golf, baseball, and tennis. Randy attended the University of North Carolina where he received his undergraduate degree in Political Science in 1981. In Chapel Hill, Randy met the love of his life, Amy, when she picked him up hitchhiking one morning in 1979. Randy attended Wake Forest School of Law where he graduated summa cum laude with the highest honors. Following graduation, Randy worked at Hunton & Williams as an attorney with the Labor and Employment Team where he quickly became Partner. In 2003, Randy joined Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton as a Partner. During Randy’s time at Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton, he served as the Team Leader of the Labor and Employment team for many years. Randy represented numerous Fortune 100 companies throughout his career receiving almost every top legal accolade available including being annually recognized by Chambers and Best Lawyers as a top attorney in his field, and twice being named Best Lawyers’ “Raleigh Lawyer of the Year.” Randy was a coveted and go-to resource nationally in the Labor and Employment legal community because of his unique and creative legal acumen and extensive experience. One of Randy’s oldest clients described him as “the gunslinger” because Randy always fought for his clients - - just like he fought cancer. He was preceded in death by his father, Gary Avram; and his nephew, Tucker Avram. Surviving Randy are his mother Patricia; brother, Andy; wife, Amy; three sons, David (wife Chelsea), Andrew (wife Myers), and Banks; grandson, Sonny; and beloved dog, Pinny. To family and friends, Randy was known for his uncanny sense of humor, kind and loving heart, and constant generosity. He was a dedicated husband and father who loved his family fully. Randy loved the Tar Heels, fishing and playing golf with his sons, and spending time with his family at Topsail Beach, North Carolina.
