If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: "A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR". To the extent you are a resident of another jurisdiction, you waive any comparable statute or doctrine

    "Non-Personally Identifiable Information" refers to information that does not identify a specific individual by itself or in combination with other information.

A URL is the global address of documents and other resources on the World Wide Web (‘Web”). An IP address is an identifier for a computer or device on a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol ("TCP/IP") network, such as the World Wide Web. Networks use the TCP/IP protocol to route information based on the IP address of the destination. In other words, an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web, allowing Web servers to locate and identify your computer. Computers require IP addresses in order for users to communicate on the Internet, browse and shop

Our beloved Husband, Father, Grandfather and Papa passed away January 26 , 2022 peacefully at his home surrounded by his family on his 81st birthday. David was born in Salt Lake City on January 26, 1941, the son of Max Willard Randall and Elizabeth Knorr Drechsel. He spent his boyhood years in Cedar City Utah. He graduated from Cedar High School and immediately after graduation began his service in the Utah National Guard.

At an early age he learned to set goals to use as a guide throughout his life. During his elementary school years, he fell in love with music, especially the Clarinet. Inspired by his high school mentor Gene Hellen he began a lifelong journey in music. Before entering Brigham Young University, he served a mission in the Eastern Canadian Mission where he learned to love and serve the Canadian people thus fulfilling his second goal. Upon his return from the mission field, he began his studies in music at Brigham Young University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in May of 1965. It was there he met and married his lifelong companion, Barbara Jean Possinger. They were married in the St. George Utah Temple on June 29, 1963. Shortly after graduation with their first child Gregory in tow, they headed to the University of Indiana at Bloomington where he received the degree of Master of Music with distinction on May 2, 1967. The following fall he began his doctoral program at the University of Iowa under the tutelage of Himie Voxman. On May 28, 1970, he received his Doctor of Musical Arts Degree. Before leaving Iowa for Provo another son Michael joined the family.

His number one goal, to be a music teacher, was fulfilled when he joined the faculty in the Department of Music at Brigham Young University in 1971 as a Professor of Clarinet. He served in that capacity for thirty-five years. Even when he served in administrative capacities in the College of Fine Arts and as the Director of the School of Music, his clarinet students remained his greatest joy and concern. When possible, he has followed their progress through the years and found delight in their success. He traveled the world teaching, giving concerts and holding clarinet workshops sharing his love for classical music. Everywhere he traveled he made lasting friendships. Many of these lasting friendships today are found among the wonderful teachers and musicians in the School of Music.

During the following years he and Barbara established their home in Orem adding Heather, Heidi and Holly to their family. They have told many that they have lived in the same little house on the corner with a white picket fence for forty-nine years. The picket fence surrounds David’s Garden which he tended with loving care each spring, summer and fall. There was always enough to store for the family and share with the neighbors. The grape vines around the garden are famous for the grape juice they produced. During the winter his energy turned to his Laith. Many Christmas gifts, wedding gifts, kitchen tools and bowls have been created.

David has an unwavering faith in his Savior, Jesus Christ. Through the years David served in: Bishoprics, as Bishop, High Councils, Stake Presidency, Temple Presidency, Temple Sealer and Patriarch of the Sunset Heights Stake in Orem, Utah. From 2004-2007 he served as Mission president with his loving companion in the Canada Edmonton Mission. For three wonderful years he and sister Randall loved and taught their missionaries using Preach My Gospel and served the people in Alberta from Red Deer to Yellowknife in the NW Territory. After returning from Canada, they served as a missionary couple at the Heber Valley Girls Camp. Where they enjoyed teaching the young women and riding their 4-wheelers. From there they served in the Mt. Timpanogos Temple Presidency for 3 years. He went on to serve in the Provo Temple as a sealer and later became the Patriarch in the Orem Sunset Heights Stake.

David is survived by his wife Barbara Jean of fifty-nine loving and adventurous years, sons Gregory (Julie) and Michael (Angie), daughters Heather (Matthew), Heidi (James) and Holly (Joshua), brother William (Peggy), sisters Elise, Norma Jean (Wade) and Janice (Lloyd), 20 grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren, along with many other family and friends. David was preceded in death by his parents Max and Betty Randall.

A visitation will be held this Friday, February 4th from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at Walker Sanderson Funeral Home, located at 646 East 800 North. Orem, Utah 84097.

Between 1984 and 1986, David Randall was my Clarinet teacher in a Master's Degree in music at BYU. I remember him as a superb clarinettist, an excellent teacher and a remarkable human being. A couple of hours ago I started searching the internet for a way to connect with him, when I found the sad news of his passing. I send my sincerest condolences to his entire family.

I have many great memories from the years I had the pleasure of studying and working with Dr. Randall. I thoroughly enjoyed lessons with him as an undergraduate. He was an engaging, wonderful teacher. I appreciated the thought he put into the selection of repertoire and etudes that we worked on. They were challenging, interesting and helped keep me motivated to practice. One of the most important things he helped me to develop was musicality. He taught me how to phrase and sing through my clarinet. Lessons were not just about the notes on the page but about conveying human emotion through music!

He also set a great example for me as a person and was always warm, generous and humorous. He encouraged my love for clarinet and music, but showed me by word and deed that living the gospel of Jesus Christ is what is most important in life!

Now that I have a little life experience, I am amazed that he would entrust such a young, inexperienced clarinetist as I with his studio at BYU. I appreciated his confidence in me and providing me with such a wonderful career opportunity. I learned so much as a teacher and performer from that experience! I was especially thankful for his mentoring when things were challenging. I know that having had University teaching experience helped to open doors for me professionally. I owe so much to Dr. Randall and am grateful for his influence in my life!

I think that I was one of the last clarinet students Dr. Randall taught at BYU before retiring. I like to think I received the culmination of all his wisdom and experience from having taught many talented clarinetists over the years. As a very young adult trying to figure out life I remember having a lot of questions and complaints about my new situation as a college student and emerging adult. I remember Dr. Randall listening patiently to my concerns and feelings. I don't remember any profound advice he gave me, but I felt like he understood and empathized with my situation. He was very steady, constant, and firmly grounded in his faith. He had a much larger understanding and vision than I had at the time and I knew that he knew what was most important in life.

Dr. Randall had a good sense of humor. He always had a little mischievous twinkle in his eye and a ready smile. He read the paper while I played scales to warm up. I remember he had a poster in his office with a staff and a dollar sign in the place of the treble clef that said, "Great music begins with money." I asked him once what he played for musical numbers in church and he said he played Jean Jean Etudes - very slowly. When he left his office in the E wing to go to the administrator office he left a note for the next professor saying he had left behind some wrong notes and if they were found to fix them and return them. When I saw him after he officially retired we would always joke about the dust on his clarinet case and his dried up reeds.

I am grateful for all Dr. Randall taught me about life while teaching me to play the clarinet. I remember watching over the balcony at the Provo Tabernacle while he played the Mozart Clarinet Concerto on the bassett horn, the instrument it was written for. I loved hearing the runs go the full range of the instrument. Dr. Randall's playing was technically flawless and extremely musical. He taught me to make sure the lines of music always went somewhere. I am grateful for the time I spent in the presence of a great man. As students, we always knew he loved and cared for us as people foremost. He left behind a great legacy.

I remember David from our time in music at the University of Iowa, Iowa City--David studying clarinet at the same time I was studying orchestral conducting. Though memory these many years later is somewhat foggy, I am almost certain that I conducted the Chamber Orchestra in one of David's doctoral concerto performances. As so often happens, such meaningful mutual experiences notwithstanding, people go their separate ways and lose track. Reading David's obituary now makes me proud that our paths once crossed, however briefly. It also tells me that his mentor, Himie Voxman (who also showed support for my work), would be very proud of all that David accomplished. Also, realizing now that David and I were within a few days of the same age, makes notice of his passing all the more striking. My sincere condolences to his family, friends, colleagues and students.

According to a program included in Dr. Randall's dissertation you did conduct the Hindemith Clarinet Concerto performed on December 3, 1968. This is a challenging piece for both soloist and orchestra, and I wish it were performed more often.

I met Dr. David Randall for the first time between my junior and senior years in high school when I attended BYU’s Sounds of Summer program for high school students. He was not an official instructor, but I had the chance to play for him and receive some advice and encouragement. The next Summer I started my studies at BYU and lessons with Dr. Randall. Right away he began the long process of refining the potential yet raw musician who looked up to and respected him so much. I remember in the first lessons his repeated attempts to get me to play out and project the sound. I wasn’t getting it. He then pointed to some dust and crumbs on the floor of the studio and said, “Play so that these blow across the room!” That was the first of many breakthroughs I would experience in that small, windowless room that was the center of my undergraduate experience for four years.
Dr. Randall always demonstrated what he was showing me especially about musical expression by playing it himself which is the basis of the master/apprentice relationship from which I benefitted. I remember even trying to copy his body movements that I observed in lessons in the practice room. He kept his clarinet studio busy with weekly master classes with workshop performances and reed working, as well as multiple performance opportunities throughout each semester. We kept a fast pace learning etudes, studies and repertoire.
I have experienced many teachers, professors and conductors in my student years and beyond who have become important to me to varying degrees, but none of this can compare to the personal intensity of the one-on-one learning experience of years of private lessons. And Dr. Randall was that person for me who guided me through the period of most intense learning.
One unexpected and huge bonus from studying with Dr. Randall came when early on in the first semester we were reading duets at the end of a lesson. He had so many interesting duets, and the one we were reading (Solere: Duo 1) was a copy of what seemed to me very strangely printed music. He then showed me his dissertation, “The Clarinet Duet from ca. 1715 to ca. 1825”, and he explained to me that he had collected a large amount of music for 2 clarinets of that period from numerous libraries throughout the world in the course of research for this dissertation. I couldn’t believe my luck! Of all the professors and schools of music in the world, I had by chance found the one professor who had researched this topic! Now the reason I was so interested in this was that a fellow clarinetist from high school one year younger than I, namely Cindy Kelly,––whom I found interesting for many reasons including clarinet playing––enjoyed playing duets with me, and now I saw this potential of a virtually unending supply of repertoire! Dr. Randall graciously allowed me to copy his dissertation as well as all of the research microfilms from the various libraries. Four years later Cindy and I––by then married––visited many of these same libraries in Europe from which Dr. Randall had acquired his microfilms. We were then looking for concertos and other “lost” clarinet repertoire. We financed the trip by performing street concerts using the music from Dr. Randall’s dissertation research!
After we moved to Germany, we were fortunate to arrange to have Dr. Randall come over and give multi-day masterclass/workshops in clarinet ensemble playing to professional clarinet teachers. A highlight for us was when Dr. Randall performed the Gordon Jacob Concerto in Tettnang (Germany) with orchestra. Cindy and I and our colleague and friend Gudrun Sinclair had the privilege of performing with Dr. Randall the Schindelmeisser Concertante for 4 clarinets and orchestra at this concert as well.
We were honored to host Dr. Randall along with his wonderful wife Barbara and their children in our home in Germany at these times and enjoy the bonds of friendship beyond music. Dr. Randall offered the use of his first name and I did try to use it, but it never was easy for me. As his apprentice I have and always will think of him as Dr. Randall even though our association has grown far beyond that role.
At the beginning of my studies, Dr. Randall took my Klose method and on the empty page after the title page sketched out the pattern for a warm-up routine that goes through the entire circle of fifths. Depending upon tempo this takes between 10-15 minutes to play. I have never found a better warm-up so I still use this one daily. Cindy and I have given it to every clarinet student we ever taught. So many other aspects of Dr. Randall’s artistry and pedagogy have flowed through us into the lessons we have given our students. And I am aware of some of our students who have become clarinet teachers themselves and are passing this warm-up and many other facets of Dr. Randall’s teaching on. So we see that Dr. Randall lives on not only in his students, but also in his “grand-students” and “great-grand-students”!
I will always value and cherish the time I had both as a student and as a friend of Dr. Randall and his family.
May his memory be a blessing!

A wonderful, storied relationship you enjoyed. David's dissertation research followed right in the footsteps of his mentor, Himie Voxman, and yours in David's. What a tribute!
