MS ride, will honor former New Bern (NC) man

Sun Journal Staff

The memory of a New Bern man with steadfast commitment to creating a world free of multiple sclerosis will be honored by those riding in this weekend’s Bike MS event.

Officials of the Eastern North Carolina Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society announced Wednesday that 2009 Bike MS will be dedicated to former New Bern resident John Randell.

Randell, who died Jan. 1, “was a powerful voice in the New Bern community and beyond,” said Staci Barfield, the chapter’s vice president of development in a release.

“No job was too big or too small for John,” she said. “He would clean up trash on the side of the road if needed. When the daunting task of recruiting 50 volunteers for Bike MS arose, he stepped up and took it on. Underneath his rigid, military exterior was a loving, caring, giving man. He volunteered, he advocated, and he always stood up for those enduring challenging circumstances.”

Randell’s wife, Teri, and daughter, Ashleigh Park, both live with multiple sclerosis. During his life, Randell poured many years of service into the National MS Society in an effort to help those affected by multiple sclerosis.
