Denver Randleman

Denver "Bull" Randleman (1920 - June 26 2003) was a sergeant in the United States Army during World War II. He was a member of the famed Band of Brothers of Easy Company, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne. He was a veteran of the D-Day invasion of Normandy, a veteran of the American military campaign in the Netherlands - Operation Market Garden, France, Belgium, the Battle of the Bulge and Germany. He was awarded, among others, the Bronze Star medal for bravery, and the Purple Heart. He was depicted in the series Band of Brothers by actor Michael Cudlitz.

Randleman, born in Rector, Arkansas, left there during the Great Depression looking for work and ended up working in a foundry in Michigan. He enlisted in the United States Army in 1942 shortly after the United States' entry into World War II. According to former Easy Company commanding officer, Major Richard Winters, Bull was one of the best soldiers he ever had.

After the war, Randleman became a successful businessman and was the superintendent of a construction contractor in Louisiana. He spent the last years of his life in Texarkana, Arkansas. He died of a staph infection at the age of 82 on June 26th, 2003.
