On October 6, 2020, Randall “Bing” Lightner, Sr., gained his angel’s wings at age 74. He was born at home on September 6, 1946 to the late A. Jean (Lightner) Kuhn of Landisburg. He is survived by three children: Randall Lightner, Jr. and his wife Shana of Landisburg, Jay Lightner and his wife Amy of Dillsburg, and Colette Mittelstadt and her husband Darrell of Slidell, LA. In addition to his children, Bing is survived by seven grandchildren: Ryan, Haylee, Dawson, Gunner, Jordan, Josh and Rebecca and four great-grandchildren: Emmett, James, Laynie and Teegan. Bing will be dearly missed by his companion, Rose Arnold, as well as many aunts and uncles. In addition to his late mother, Bing was preceded in death by his brother, Morris Lightner.
Bing graduated from Perry Joint High School and immediately joined the Air Force. After his stint in the military, he became a laborer with PPG Corporation, where he worked until his retirement in 2002. In his free time, Bing loved to sell produce, golf, hunt, and of course, with a last name of Lightner…fish. He was an expert fisherman, evidenced by his many fishing awards. He was also a fan of the Phillies, Eagles, Penn State football, and Port Royal dirt track racing. He also enjoyed his weekly poker game with “the gang.” Bing was a caring gentleman, who was always generous and fair, but never pass judgement on people. He had the gift to always see the good in people.
