    Shared two years of college with Randy at PJC where we earned our CAD A.S. degrees in ‘97. He was “Sharp as a Tac” in comprehending college material very well. He would then translate it to me in “Redneck Terms” so I would be able to receive my certificate as well. Enjoyed riding to school, talking & laughing with him on a daily basis. It’s been several years since I spoke with him but he will be greatly missed by many. Prayers go out to family…

    Please accept my deepest and most sincerest condolensces to Randy’s immediate and extended family. I know how difficult this is and will continue to be for you. Randy will be most remembered by me, for his kindness, gentle behavior, sense of humor and beautiful spirit. He was truly an amazing individual and will be intensely missed by all. No one will ever measure up to his standards as a human being. Much love and gratitude to you for allowing me to share a wonderful friendship with him.
