We are so sorry Lisa, Randy was one of my best friends in school and I am glad we got to reconnect these past few years. If you need anything please let us know.. Here is a picture from our last get together at the tiki bar, he was always happy and his laugh was contagious. We will keep you in our prayers.

My deepest condolences to Lisa, Randy's children, grandchildren, brothers and sister, Chris.  I met Randy when he was a young boy and while I haven't seen him much since we all graduated from high school (except on Facebook), I will always fondly remember his sweet smile, kind heart and ability to make anyone smile no matter your mood.  Randy will be deeply missed by all who knew him.  Rest in peace, Randy.
