I was deeply saddened to hear about Randy‘s sudden passing. Though our lives drifted apart I often thought and spoke of Randy as a very good friend. We both went through school together in Coquitlam. After finishing high school we hooked up again and became very close friends. Scuba diving, fishing, 4x4ing , camping and dirt biking. When Randy’s mom moved to Aldergrove, my Mom would often feed him dinner with us she thought of him like another son . Quite often a few hours later we would go to White Spot for our evening usual, burger, fries, and clam chowder, the staff knew us well so we would just say, “ the usual please” they always knew. The 70’ s was a fun decade for us. I always remember the time I think it was January 1st 1974, we had gone diving at Caulfield cove in West Van. It was a beautiful sunny day so we kept our wet suits on, took the top off my Jeep and drove back to Coquitlam, on the way we wheeled into White Spot car service and ordered the usual, people must have thought we were crazy, but we were just enjoying life! Dyan and I were married in 1977, Randy was a groomsman in our wedding party.We moved to Williams Lake in 1979, Randy came up to visit us for Stampede weekend 1980, party on! The next time we got together was when we ran into each other at Expo 86, we spent the evening at the improv. Very funny evening lots of laughs, at my expense as I ended up on stage. That ventriloquist was hilarious. The last time Randy and I met up was in the late 90’s my son Josh and I went to the Father’s Day gathering at Gunner’s cabin at Glimpse Lake, Randy was there. This has been a brief recount of my life with Randy. This reminiscing has brought tears to my eyes, it is difficult to see. Dyan and I will always hold great memories of Randy,. He was like a brother to me, “Forever”
