I am devastated to just learn of the passing of Randy. I met him when I was in High School and have many great Memories of going out on his Sailboat with him and his Best Friend. He was a kind, generous fun loving person and my Heart truly goes out to Cindy and his two Daughters. We were all blessed to know him and his wonderful bright shining Personality will be truly missed. Thinking and praying for the entire Family!❤❤❤

Dear Cindy and family, My heart goes out to you all. I'm so very sorry for your loss. Randy was such a great person. I remember as children when we were in a parade and he was dressed up like one of the Beatles. They won first place! Fun times! Randy always had a great smile on his face whenever you would see him. We all cherish those memories. Hugs to you all. ❤️🙏

Dear Cindy and Family -

I am very sorry to hear about Randy. After decades, our paths crossed last November, and Randy was still as he was back in the old days - a friend, easy-going, quick to smile. I mourn his passing.

Time gets away from us. Our people too. I never dreamed you'd get away from us so soon. I remember the good times, what good times they were. And all the good people we knew. I won't be forgetting. Now there's this time which I'm not going to be there for. Forgive me for that. My thoughts are with you and your family today.

Dear Cindy and family,
My sincerest condolences for an incredibly great loss. I remember Randy as a kindhearted, gentle spirit who always had a big smile. We were in the high school band together. He was one-of-a-kind and well loved. Randy was the coolest, driving the Rolls-Royce to school. My heart and thoughts go out to you during this difficult time.
God bless you & comfort you.

Please accept my condolences to the family of Randy. I met Randy back in Weslaco High. He was such a funny guy to be around school. Always with a smile on his face and laughing. I remember him driving his grey Royce around school. Him and Cindy made a power couple back then. 🤔 May the Lord be with his family at this time of need. Joel God bless.
