Steven Randall Spurlock, M.D. of Sevierville died Saturday, July 18, after a nineteen-year battle with multiple myeloma. He was born on September 5, 1960, in Nashville, the youngest of four children born to the late James Riley Spurlock, Jr. and the late Betty Louella Staggs Spurlock. At age fifteen, Randy opened his own comic book store, Music City Comics, on Nolensville Road in Nashville, and after graduating from Smyrna High School in 1978, he moved to Memphis and opened a second store. However, he realized that his dream of becoming a physician was more important to him, so he returned home and sold both stores. He began attending MTSU in the fall of 1979, and graduated with his Bachelor's in 1983. During this time, he met and married Jennifer Ruth Easterly of Tullahoma, TN. Randy worked until Jenni finished college; and then he began at the University of Tennessee Medical School Memphis, graduating in 1993. After completing his residency in Jackson, TN, Randy moved his family, which now included daughters Rebecca and Molly, to Sevierville, TN, where he joined Summit Medical Group. Two weeks later, he was diagnosed with multiple myeloma. He continued to practice until July 2004. He was a member of First Baptist Church Sevierville. He is survived by his wife of 34 years, Jenni; daughters Rebecca (Jacob) Romancky of Graham, NC, and Molly Spurlock of Sevierville; granddaughters Julie and Sadie Romancky; siblings Lisa (John) Smart of Charlotte, NC, Dr. Jim (Brenda) Spurlock III of Murfreesboro, TN, and Jackie Weaver of Pageland, SC; mother-in-law Ruth Easterly of Knoxville; and brother-in-law Richard Easterly, JR. (Tammy) of Franklin, TN. The family will receive friends from 4-7 p.m. EDT on Friday, July 24, in the chapel at First Baptist Church Sevierville. Funeral will immediately follow with Rev. Dan Spencer and Dr. Gary Coltharp officiating. The family and friends will meet at Stevens Mortuary at 10:30 a.m. Saturday and go in procession to Greenwood Cemetery for a graveside service and internment at 11:00 a.m. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to First Baptist Church Sevierville C.A.R.E. Ministry.
