Randall O. Braten

(March 6, 1926 - Nov. 16, 2021)


Randall passed away at the Tender Next Assisted Living Facility in Billings, after being on hospice for two and a half months. 

He was born at Paint Creek, Wyoming, to Arthur Ray Braten and Helen Regina (Brough) Braten. Randall was the seventh of nine children — two sisters and six brothers. 

Randall married Viola Josephine Williams in Red Lodge, Montana, on July 23, 1945. From this union came four children: three sons and one daughter. 

Randall is survived by his wife; his sons, Gene Braten of Powell, and Russell Braten of Pryor, Montana; and his daughter, Jane Young (Ron) of Columbus, Montana; 10 grandchildren; 22 great-grandchildren; and 11 great-great-grandchildren. 

Randall was preceded in death by his parents and all his siblings, his son Jimmy Joe, a great-grandson Kerrick John, two daughters-in-law, Beverly (wife of Jimmy) and Judy (wife of Gene). 

A gathering to remember Randall will be held on July 23 at 2 p.m., at the Braten Homestead in Russell Creek. Please join family and share your memories. Lunch will be served.
