Randy Stoughton, who enjoyed a diverse career in the bowling business — most recently with the Kegel Training Center in Lake Wales, Fla. — passed away on Jan. 8 following a year-long battle with cancer.

The USBC Gold-level coach also served as the head coach of the Webber International women’s bowling team since that program’s founding in 2010 and stunned the collegiate bowling world by quickly elevating the program to an elite level.

Stoughton had also been a ball driller on the PBA Tour, punching out an estimated 100,000 balls during his tenure, and was a regional sales manager for Ebonite International. His resumé also included stints as a Tour rep on both the PBA and PWBA circuits.

“We are all deeply saddened by Randy’s passing,” said Del Warren, President of the Kegel Training Center. “He has been a vital part of the success of the… center. Randy was deeply devoted to bowling and to everyone he worked with and coached. He was our gentle giant.”

Added Len Nicholson, former PBA Tour laneman and a colleague at Kegel: “I don’t think Randy had an enemy, but he had thousands of friends because he helped so many people with their games.”
