    I have numerous fond memories of Randy. He was a friend of a friend at first but then became my friend as well. He was a kind soul with a big heart, a great laugh and wonderful sense of humor (if not a bit twisted). He adored being a Grandpa, always sharing the latest pictures of his grandson on his iphone.

    My prayers and thoughts to his family and friends during this time. He will be sorely missed by those who knew him.

    I knew Randy best as a little girl. Some of my earliest memories was of running back forth from Uncle Dennis and Aunt Kim’s to Aunt Teresa and Uncle Randy’s. My thoughts and prayers are with all the family and friends that will miss him dearly.
