I am so sorry to hear this!! I grew up with Randy in Richmond Hill as he was my cousin. His Grandmother (Aunt Mitt) and my Dad were brothers and sisters. I hadn’t seen him in many years.He was always such a good and fun person and as a kid we loved hanging out with him. I just saw this, so so sorry!!

Fonda, I want to express my condolences about Randy. I am so sorry. I was looking at area funeral home obituaries and saw “Alton Lanier” and the photo. First thing that I thought was that this was an old posting since I knew that Alton had passed away a while back and the photo looked so much like I remember Alton. Then I realized it was Randy. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
