NEW TAZWELL, Tenn. (WVLT) - The Tennessee Highway Patrol is mourning the loss of one of its beloved sergeants who died Thursday with family and fellow troopers by his side.

Sgt. Randall Massengill oversaw the Knoxville district’s Critical Incident Response Team (CIRT). He reportedly died on Jan. 20 due to an off-duty medical episode that briefly resulted in a hospital stay. Law enforcement officials said he was a trooper respected by all and served his state with dignity.

“He helped countless families find the justice they deserved due to his tireless efforts reconstructing numerous crashes,” THP tweeted. “Please keep his family and work-family in your thoughts and prayers.”

The visitation will be on Tuesday from 6-8 p.m. and the funeral is set for Wednesday at 11 a.m. Both will be at the Midway Baptist Church in New Tazwell, according to officials with the Tennessee Highway Patrol.

Those willing to pay tribute to the fallen sergeant can purchase a tree in his memory.
