Durban Randall Blanton, 55

WILMINGTON — Randall was born in Portsmouth, Virginia and lived his adult life in North Carolina.

He was a good gardener. He loved to fish and enjoyed cooking for people. He was handy with a computer and was a talented carpenter. In the mid 90s, he made wooden reindeer and sold them at Christmas time, thus he was affectionately known as the Reindeer Man.

His favorite sports team was Clemson Tigers.

Randall is survived by his father Durban L. Blanton Jr., his sister Deborah, his two nephews Blake and Anden, and his niece Holly.

He was a good-hearted fellow.
