Randy Tetterman – 1964-2023

Dear Members, Colleagues, and Friends,

It is with much sadness I have to report the passing of one of our own. Randy Tetterton left us unexepectedly on October 16th, 2023. While I had shaken hands with him several times, I never had the pleasure of getting to know Randy. Dale Edmonds, our Treasurer, went to NCSU with Randy, and knew him well. For that reason, I asked Dale to write up something to send out to all of you. Please read the following, and keep Randy’s family in your thoughts and prayers.

Buckley Brockmann
ENCTA President

Randy Tetterton was a long-time member and friend of the Eastern NC Turfgrass Association and he will be missed. He was a man of few words; however, he was a hard-working golf course superintendent. He made a difference in each place he worked and left it better than he found it!!!
I had the pleasure of meeting Randy in 1988 at NCSU. He worked for Bob Young at Carolina CC while in school. He not unlike the rest of us was trying to find our way in a competitive turfgrass industry. He was older than a lot of us, however, he enjoyed cutting up and learning about from Dr. Peacock, Dr. Bruneau, and Dr. Dipaola. During his time working for Barefoot and Associates, they completed an extensive drainage plan for my upcoming renovation at Wilson CC. I had not seen him in years and was very relieved when he was the foreman for Bo on my job. I knew I had very little to worry about as Randy was very diligent and committed to providing a quality product.
In closing, the Eastern NC Turfgrass Association offers our love and support to Randy’s family and friends during this time. Randy will be missed!!!

Randy worked diligently in all of his positions throughout the years:

Golf Course Superintendent at Albemarle Plantation
Golf Course Superintendent Golf Albemarle Plantation
Farm Manager for BuySod
Shaper Barefoot & Associates
Golf course Superintendent the River Golf & C.C.
Assistant Superintendent Carolina C.C. Carolina
