I will always hold dear and cherish the memories I have of Randy. He was such a wonderful man and had a heart of gold. He was always smiling and singing and making people laugh. Anyone who met him could see how much he adored his family, and how proud he was of Cari and Richard. He was a wonderful grandfather too. I was very blessed to have had the chance to know Randy and I will miss him greatly. Camping is never going to be the same without him. My prayers and thoughts are with the family.

Randy was a great person and a good friend to many. I will miss him greatly. I enjoyed having a couple beers with him and giving him a hard
time about drinking those shots of tequila. I will really miss you at the Bix this year, we always had such a good time. And to the family I'm so sorry for you loss.

Mary, Sandy, and Steve... I grieve with you. Randy always had a smile on his face, and his laughter could fill a room. He will have all of Heavens Angels rolling on their sides with his humor. He will be missed! Debbie St. John (Del City, OK)
