Randy was a fun guy to play scrabble against...his favorite word was panchax and I used to play against him when he used that screen name on M-Player in the late 90s!
Randy played one of the coolest words I ever saw at a Scrabble tourney, one year in Pigeon Forge, TN - -"vandyked", with no blanks !! He loved late singer from the '60s, Gene Pitney - -so do I. Gene had an unusual, distinctive voice. RIP Randy, a great guy ! My sincere sympathy to his loved ones. Bill email@example.com
My deepest condolences go out to the entire Greenspan family. I had the honor of flying back to Buffalo about ten years ago with his son, Reid to meet Randy and felt very comfortable in his home! May he rest in peace.
Even though Texas is far away from any place Randy lived, I already miss him dreadfully. As a competitive Scrabbler, I saw him when I directed and enjoyed his gentle sense of humor as he teased me about my southern accent. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and other friends.
Randy was a joy to be with. He was a terrific Scrabble player and taught me so much. Very encouraging and complementary even when he'd beat me by hundreds of points. He was also one of the funniest people I knew. He cracked me up! I admired him for he never let his illness stop him and he never complained about it--ever. We spent several years together and I will always remember the wonderful times. I was happy that he got to spend his last years in warm and sunny Florida with Patty, Noel, and family. I prefer to think of him as not leaving us, but going before us. God bless you Randy.
