Went to high school with Randy. Rode dirt bikes together. Super nice,smart, friendly person. RIP old friend!!
I just heard about Randy's passing. I knew him from the neighborhood growing up. We rode BMX bikes then graduated to Dirt Bikes as we got older in the Field. We had tree forts and even a camp out in that Field.
He was always a nice person growing up. I lost touch with him after High School. Rest in Peace.
Well, I know and remember Randy from university days. He was a quiet but focused young man. I shared with Chiyo at the time (they were just totally friends then) and Randy shared with a Caribbean student Carl. He got along and fitted in well with us Caribbean people. Chiyo and family, my prayers are with you all. Trust and lean heavily on God, he is able to help you through this loss. Jackie and family.
I've just learned of Randy's untimely passing. While I've been retired from Kodak for five plus years, I remember Randy well, and the many times that we worked together in the Research labs. Randy always came through, not only with good information, but a smile, a laugh, a thoughtful job well done. All of us miss him. My sincerest condolences to his wife Chiyo and his entire family.
I am sending thoughts and prayers your way to help you throughthis very tough time. I lost Ernie Healy not too long ago and my heart still hurts.
Please take one day at a time. Love Lana
I met Randy on the trails riding about 10 years ago and ended up riding with Randy often for several years. He was always fun to ride with, and someone who I will always appreciate having met and gotten to know. I was deeply saddened to hear the news about Randy. My thoughts and prayers are will his family.
Despite not havng seen Randy in over 5 years since my departure from Kodak and never having worked with him when I was there on a day to day basis, Randy is one person I was always impressed with. He seemed to treat everyone he came across with respect, worked diligently, and yet never made you feel like you were imposing on him if you needed his knowledge or assitance. Im proud to say I knew Randy and am greatly saddened by his loss. May God bless and look after his family.
Randy and I met at Kodak many years ago. He was most certainly the coolest guy in the lab. He definitely had the longest hair. In fact he had hair enough for at least three of us. We shared many interests and it wasn't difficult to spend an hour with him talking when I only intended to drop by to say hello. Always helpful and generous with his time, he mentored me and allowed me to use a GC in his laboratory to conduct experiments for an instrumental class I was attending at RIT. We ran together at noon and rode together on the trails of Tryon Park and East Bay many times. Randy was in terrific shape, very fast and technically a very skilled mountain biker. He rode with flow and grace. He bunny hopped logs with the grace of a white tail. Fearless and adventurous, he had the knack of bringing out the best in us.
I extend my sincere condolences to you Chiyo and your family. I am proud to call you my friend Randy, you left us way too soon and I will miss you.
My prayers and thoughts are with you Chiyo. I will always remember seeing Randy ride his bike through Ft. Jackson and how it made me feel a little closer to home during basic training. Wish we could have spent more time together when you guys came down to Pittsburgh. Please let us know if you need anything.
I will keep you and your family in my prayers. I can only imagine what a shocking loss this is for you.If there is anything I can do for you smply ask.Peace and Love,Delores Jackson Radney
Randy was a good friend and colleague here at Kodak. I worked accross the hall from Randy and we would talk often about many subjects and I truely valued his opinions and friendship. Randy was a good and honorable person and he will be greatly missed by all who new him. My deepest sympathy to his family and wife Chiyo.
Randy, a great guy. I am one of the group of guys from Kodak who rode bikes with him on many noon hour rides. Last time I saw Randy was in Sept 2009 when I went to Letchworth State Park with him and another friend and together we rode the trail on the wilderness side of the park. I watched in awe Randy negotiate technical trails with amazing skill. He was a superb rider and yet humble and just a fun guy to be around. I was troubled for him when he got sick and just dropped out of the ride group but he wouldn't discuss his situation. Needless to say we are all shocked and very saddened. Randy and I exchanged emails recently and I hoped to find our last ones. Unfortunately my emails were purged and now I regret that I can't find them....
So of course, my heart goes out to his wife and family. To them I extend my deepest sympathies.
Randy, our friend, you will be missed.
Randy was a very positive individual, a real light in a workplace going through some dark times. We've missed him on our lunchtime bike rides during his illness and I always thought that he would come back. I guess we're going to have to catch up with you later, buddy. My prayers go out to Chiyo, his family and many other friends.
I knew Randy from way back in the old neighborhood. We would sit at the circle and drink beer. Those where some really good times. Unfortunatly I only went to see him one time since he moved to NY. He was never forgotten back home and I know he never will be. Rest in peace my friend and my heart goes out to his wife, family, and everyone who was lucky enough to know him personally.
I remember Randy as a compassionate friend to animals; his kindness was appreciated and inspiring. I'm so sorry to hear of his passing, Chiyo.
I have fond memories growing up with Randy from our childhood days on Sylvia Lane. Sleepovers, backyard sports, and our conquest of "the fields" and then Mill Creek Park. Though I have not seen him in more than 25 years, I know the loss all of his coworkers, friends, and family must feel. My heart goes out to you all. Sounds like Randy continued on to be one heck of a guy. Rest in Peace old friend.
from all of randy,s old friends in his old nieberhood he will be missed very very much love your buddy ERIC BURGY peace and love 2 the family.
Chiyo, my heart goes out to you and Randy's family. Randy was good to his friends and colleagues and will be missed by both.
When I first met Randy, a fresh new PHD applying for a job at Kodak in my lab I thought, hmm young, quite and yet a pony tail this could be interesting. It was! He was great to work with, both having a passion for music, sports, and Beer! He and I traveled all over in search of great music and tried many a beer in search of the great ones! It saddens me deeply to lose him he will be greatly missed. To you Chiyo, his partner in life, a great lady and also my friend any help I can give is only a request away. Skip
How could there be a finer coworker? Science with enthusiasm, persistence, wit and a smile. We will think of him fondly and miss him dearly.
Chiyo we are all in shock at your loss. I cannot imagine how you feel now, but know that your friends at MAG are all with you in spirit, and in person if and when you need us.
Randy was always very positive and upbeat. I enjoyed our conversations about his interests outside of work. My prayers are with the family.
Hard to believe a guy who could spank me on a Moutain or Road bike could be gone ...I have and will continue to miss riding with him ... great guy
Randy was a great athlete. I will always remember trying to keep up with him during our lunch-hour bike rides.
My sympathy goes out to Randy's family. He was a wonderful man to work with.
Chiyo, my condolences on your loss. I worked with Randy at kodak for many years and I enjoyed our noon time runs and many great conversations. We are all going to miss him.
Randy was a good scientist and a great colleague to work with. He did his job with excellence and care. He will especially be missed for his companionship and friendship. God bless and keep him.
I worked with Randy in Kodak Research Labs for many years. He was a wonderful co-worker, a font of knowledge in his field, and always positive, friendly and cheerful. Randy helped me many times over the years setting up and fixing instruments. If you would call him with a technical problem, he would say "I'll be there in a minute." I'm sure I speak for all his former colleagues in saying that we were stunned by his death, and are already missing him. I walked by his lab yesterday, and it was incredibly sad to look in the window and not see Randy there. My deepest sympathies to Chiyo and the rest of his family.
I cherished the many weekend motocross trips that Randy and I made to Massachusetts, Pennsylvania and various areas around New York state. Both of us having similar interests in motocross, hockey & micro brews made for some very fond memories I will never forget. Rest in peace my friend.
I will miss Randy very much! I always enjoyed participating in various sports with him, and just getting together for social events. His infectious laugh and smile are what I will remember most. Take care my friend, may you rest in peace. God bless you!
Randy was a great scientist, a hard worker, and a joy to work with. He will be missed by all.
Chiyo, we are so sorry for you loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Randy was a terrific friend. The memories of our floor hockey games, attending concerts and enjoying a fine micro brew with him will last forever. He will be missed.
