Randy was a warm man who accepted anyone he met, and he made friends instantly everywhere he went. Talking with him made you feel as though you were among old friends at a campfire, and he reminded you that there are kind, loving people in the world. He was the embodiment of the phrase "A stranger is just a friend you haven't met yet." He will be dearly missed, and remembered fondly.
