Randal , a person so loved and so cherished by so many .
I revered Randal , I loved everything about him including his wit ,
his humor , his deep ability to understand , his flexibility , how he looked
you straight in the eyes , that he could be sad and serious and jovial and sometimes
Just plain silly .
Randal is truth .
The soul of Randal will persist in my heart forever .

Cheers to you , dear Travis and Randal , who loved each other above and beyond !
Love , Marla

I am shocked and saddened. My deepest sympathy to you and your family. I cherished my conversations and "appointments" with Randal and then you under his watchful eye. Travis, you guys worked as a team to make your magic and I was so happy when you committed your hearts to each other. Randal had a generous soul, he was sweet, caring, smart,funny and witty. He always had the best stories and I will miss him so much! I know his spirit is soaring with the angels.
Travis please reach out to me when you're ready. I love you and I love Randal and I will do anything to help you.

So saddened to hear of Randal's passing. Randal had such a way of making us feel so special when we sat in his chair. He was always a ray of sunshine and always made me feel so encouraged and used to give me different hair products to try, he was so giving and we shared so many laughs. However, the last time I saw him in February, I left feeling concerned about him, I even snapped a picture of him before leaving. I didn't realize it was my last time to see him. I really loved him and I thought the world of him and Travis as well. My thoughts go out to Travis...my thoughts and prayers are with you in this same time. Love you friend!

My mother, Billie Plank, had the pleasure of getting to know Randal when she started getting her weekly hair appointments with Travis. She loved them both; they were so sweet and kind to her, and she loved hearing about their wedding and seeing their wedding pictures.
Our hearts go out to Travis.

I was so shocked and sad to read of Randall's passing. He used to be my hair stylist and he was an excellent one! I enjoyed our chats about gardening, Halloween parties & costumes and traveling. Randall recommended one of his favorite restaurants in Nags Head (Mama Quan's), which became a family favorite and I think of him every time we go there. I'm very sorry for your loss.

Randy started being my hairstylist when he was at London Hair in Waterlick Plaza in the 80’s. I had to leave when he moved to the Boonsboro area. I am so sad to read of his passing. He was a friend and always made me look and feel great. My sympathy to Travis and the family.

Travis, my heart goes out to you. I am so sorry for your loss. Although I knew Randall for only a short time, I feel blessed to have known him. I always looked forward to the day when he would do my hair. He was so good natured and kind. Always knew there would be a laugh or two to share. He will be missed by many people but I know especially by you. You take good care and know that he is looking down on you with love. Helen

Randall was a friend to all and was a bright star even in a bad day. He did so much to raise the level of happiness in our work and home family. This world has lost a great person and he surely will be missed!
