John Randall Gould
John Randall Gould, known to many as “Randy”, was born on May 28, 1963 to parents John “Jim” Gould, Valerie McMillan, and brother James Gould in Fresno, California. They moved to Anchorage, Alaska when Randy was 5 years old. He attended Chester Valley Elementary and later graduated from Bartlett High School. After knee and shoulder injuries prevented fulfilling dreams of a professional baseball career, he moved to Nome, Alaska. Shortly after arriving in Nome, Randy began working for Nome Joint Utility Systems where he enjoyed 27 years of service. Randy also met the love of his life in Nome; Anna. After a few years of courtship, they were married on July 7, 1985. In 2005, when they thought it wasn’t possible, Anna and Randy had a baby boy, Cristopher. Throughout his life Randy enjoyed camping and playing golf at Cottonwood, fishing, and was an All-Star Softball Player.
Randy is survived by his wife Anna, son Cristopher (Allison), grandchildren Jackson and Johanna, mother Valerie McMillan (Jim), brother James Michael Gould, grandmother Nancy Krettecos, aunt Loretta Wise (Chuck), uncle Christopher Krettecos (Barbara) and many nieces and nephews.
Randy was preceded in death by grandparents Wilma and James Gould, and father James Verlin Gould.
