Randall Feinberg Sr.

Obituary of Randall J. Feinberg Sr.

Randall J Feinberg Sr. the second son of Harold and Margaret Feinberg, living at 53 Layton Ave. Southampton, passed away on July 12 2020. He was 70 years old. Randy was only 2 1⁄2 lbs at Birth. The chances of surviving at that time was far less than it is today. But he was fortunate to prosper and was finally able to leave the Hospital. His father would kiddingly say, he brought him home in a shoe box. Randy went to Sacred Hearts School for Elementary, and graduated from Southampton High School in 1968. He also was in the first class of Boces in Riverhead for Mechanics during his senior year of highschool and shortly after attended Vale Tech in Blairsville Pa. for Auto Body Collision Repair and Painting. Randy had a natural talent with cars, even as a child. No matter what condition they were in, he always had a unique vision of what a vehicle "could" look like. He had a gift of knowing how to artfully spray the paint onto the vehicle and it would come out looking as smooth as glass. He took pride in anything he repaired whether it was a farm truck or a brand new Mercedes Benz. He first started out using an area in one of his fathers potato barns, and practicing on his own vehicles and his father's work trucks. He then went on to rent a building on the north highway opening up Randall's Auto Collision in 1971. He quickly began to enjoy a reputation for excellent and consistent professional work. Six years later he bought a lot and built an Auto Body Shop on David Whites Lane. At that time he needed to expand and add on an area to accommodate larger vehicles. He was then able to paint local fire trucks to help keep them parade ready. He was also a Southampton Fireman for 11 years. Randy was a collector of antiques in many areas, furniture, paintings, pedal cars, tractor seats, and hard to find parts for cars he bought to restore. You would most likely see him at car shows in Hershey, Carlisle, or Atlantic City enjoying the easy going atmosphere of other collectors who wound up also becoming his friend. Randy grew up to have a voice that echoed his fathers, and a generous heart for helping others, which I believe was the key to his success. In helping his father, he would close down the auto body shop two months a year to help plant, irrigate and farm potatoes. Randy is survived by his sons, Randall Jr. from Orangeburg NY, John (who is the current proprietor of Randall's Auto Collision ) from East Quogue, Justin from Kildeer, IL. and daughter Allison from Southampton. He was blessed with 7 wonderful grandchildren also. He leaves two brothers, Ron from Miller Place, Harold Jr. from Mullins South Carolina, and his sister Margaret Kaiser from Northville NY. One last note. If you would happen to ask Randy what his greatest treasure in his entire life was, he would say his children and grandchildren. He loved them so very much and would do anything for them. He will be greatly missed!
