Dear Kelen, Zach and Jeremy - The folks that knew Randy at Flood Brook School are saddened for you at this time of loss. Randy's jolly nature was always uplifting to those around him, and he always talked of how proud he was of his boys. His accomplishments live on especially for the kids that benefit from the FBAA. He will be greatly missed.
