Randy for me was what life is about!
He lived! Loved! Kept his family so close he couldn’t be without one!
He was the best representation of a father and a friend I have ever seen!
I’m glad to have had him to influence me!
Be strong Sexton’s!
We lost a good one!

The Kennedy and Sexson families have so many great memories from the past. With Cynthia and Rick being older Randy would be given the job of watching over Kip Susan Kathy Pat Ann and me. Poor Randy!!! He had a laugh and smile that would light up a room. I hope all of your beautiful memories will help all of you get through this difficult time. I know he will be missed by so may.

To Peggy and entire Sexson family....i have known Randy as a friend and golfing buddy for many years at the CC Indianapolis and during golfing trips to Sarasota Fl. He was a true joy! His happy spirit could make the gray days bright. He will be missed by many of us! This is just a short note to convey my sorrow and wish you heartfelt sympathies at this difficult time in your life and know that your friends and associates have you in our thoughts today. Joe Kack

Randy (dba Squirrel)had a passion for fishing. He took me on my inaugural adult lake fishing excursion on Lake Maxinhall in the summer of 1978. While casting our lures, I advised Randy that a duck was swimming toward us because it saw the ripples in the water and was going to hit our lures. He then said , "Lee, you don't know anything about fishing. That ain't going to happen". Two minutes later, the duck hits Randy's lure, gets lodged in its beak and it takes us 5 minutes to get the duck in the boat. While I was holding the duck, Randy got the lure out of the beak and then threw the duck, along with his pliers, back into the lake. Of course, I haven't stopped laughing about this to this day.
Remember that life is not measured by the number of breaths that you take, but by the moments that take your breath away.
