Editor's note: Randolph grew up on Ocracoke and was loved by many on the island. Ocracoke resident Randal Mathews posted a tribute on Facebook, which we'll share here:

"The Ocracoke Surf tribe has always been tight. The kids that were part of the Ocracoke Adventures Surf Camp are all special to us even if they are no longer Ocracoke residents. They are deeply rooted in our local tribe no matter their age or current location. They are always welcome in the lineup and we cherish our friendships. My heart is heavy because we have recently lost one of our tribe and there are no words to describe our loss. We love you and will miss you Randolph White. Your spirit will always be with us."
