but their echoes are truly endless."

The Prayer of Faith

God is my help in every need;

God does my every hunger feed;

God walks beside me, guides my way

Through every moment of this day.

I now am wise, I now am true,

Patient and kind, and loving, too;

All things I am, can do, and be,

Through Christ the Truth, that is in me.

God is my health, I can't be sick;

God is my strength, unfailing, quick;

God is my all, I know no fear,

Since God and Love and Truth are here.

By Hannah More Kohaus

Randy “Dr. Love” Carpenter

Randy “Dr. Love” Carpenter, 81, made his transition Monday, January 17, 2022. Born as an only child to Charles Wellington Carpenter and Genevieve Marie Schowalter, November 1940, in Lansing, Michigan. He was raised by his grandparents along with several aunts and uncles.

Eager to serve his country, he joined the U.S. Navy at seventeen years of age. He married Della Jean Freeman, the mother of his four children, in January 1961, in Charlotte, Michigan. (Divorced 1985). Ten years later, in a short caravan of vehicles and trailers, Randy moved his family to Chino Valley, Arizona. Soon after, Randy completed several courses and received his GED at Yavapai College; he especially loved his public speaking course!

He was a true renaissance man: house-mover, motorcycle-builder, chaplain, electrician, plumber, race-car driver, hot-air ballooned, and open-ocean sailor. He was president of the Prescott Pioneer 4x4 club and the Arizona State Association of Four-Wheel Drive Clubs. Under his leadership, the state organization partnered with the U.S. Forest Service, the Bureau of Land Management, Arizona Game and Fish, and private landowners for statewide conservation efforts. A winning coach, he led three separate Chino Valley baseball teams to championship wins. He served in the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary for 25 years. He completed over 200 hours as a volunteer at the Prescott Veterans Hospital. Randy was a lead usher at Unity Church of Prescott for over 29 years and head usher for the Yavapai College Performance Hall. He was also the president of the Brothers of Third Wheel, an international trike organization.

He is survived by his daughter, Pamela Ann Miller (Leonard), sons Charles Randall Carpenter, Brian Gene Carpenter and Scott Allen Carpenter (Amberly).

A celebration of life will be held Wednesday, January 26, at the Unity Church of Prescott, 145 S Arizona Ave, Prescott at 10:30. A reception will be held immediately after the service.
