Randy was always friendly and kind to me, even though I was the new kid in school and he was a year ahead of me. He was always fun and always thinking and working on a new project or idea.

Randy did good where he could and left this world a better place than he found it. I think that's a good description of a life well-lived. My heart goes out to all of you who are saddened by his loss. He was a good man and we could use a few more like him. He will be missed. I will miss talking and drinking with him. The philosophizing was the best.

peace,
Don

I met Randy in 8th grade. We were good friends during high school, college and after. He was one of the few high school classmates that I kept in touch with over the years. I will miss him greatly.
