After Wally was killed in action during the Korean conflict, Betty later married Dr. Herbert Raymond Madry Jr. in 1960. Ray adopted Randy and his brother and added his last name to theirs. Randy was truly blessed with this as Ray was a wonderful father, one of the kindest persons you could ever meet. Making Raleigh their home, Randy graduated from Broughton High School. He then attended and graduated from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a degree in Political Science and lettered in Fencing. In addition, he graduated from The University of North Carolina School of Banking.

Randy began his career in 1972 in the banking industry, working as a branch manager, credit auditor, bank security officer, troubled asset liquidation officer, and consumer and commercial loan officer.

Throughout his professional career, Randy made a difference with numerous contributions that were and will continue to be foundational, particularly in the health care field. Randy’s dedication, innovation and example will be remembered for years to come.

Stagg, I am so sorry. I last saw Randy at our garden club gathering precovid. He was quite a trooper to be there and was so friendly, holding court. His obituary was beautiful. What a special, wonderful person. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Much love, Sally

Randy was one of the finest men I ever knew. He was the first to welcome me to my new extended family when Mary Duke and I were wed. His advice, which still holds to this day? “Remember, Fred, the Sanders women are always right.” Just one example of his wit and charm.

While I will miss Randy’s friendship and our conversations about everything from politics to healthcare to American history, I am a better person for knowing him. His intelligence, passion, compassion and love for his family are but a few of the amazing qualities that he unselfishly shared with me and others. I always will remain comforted by the warm memories of our time together and will look back fondly on our relationship.

Rest In Peace, Randy, and thank you for making my life richer.
