To my family,
My heart goes out to all of you at this difficult time. May you remember all the special moments and times spent with Randy as they will carry you through. Randy and I were born 5 months apart, through our younger years we were always competitive whether it be at a back yard football game or on the baseball diamond. We had a special baseball rivalry in our teenage years as we both played Legion Baseball, he for Mt. Pleasant and me for Youngwood. Once or twice a season we would meet on the field, in our final meeting with family watching I hit a double off him and his 'untouchable curve ball'. The next time I was up to bat he proceeded to hit me with the same pitch in the backside....You will be missed by us all.

Randy was one of the wackiest and nicest people I got the chance to know as a kid. For the most part, he was my baseball coach, and excelled at that position. The only thing he wanted to see out of us kids was to do our best, be competitive, and have fun. I wish I got to know him a bit more as an adult, but I'll never forget the impact he had on my life as a kid. I am deeply sorry to all of his family during this time. The man was a legend, and I am blessed to have known Randy.

So sorry to hear of the passing of Randy. He was a wonderful person. My thoughts and prayers to Pam, Allen, Amanda and family. I got to work with him at CC Lumber for a summer, but he was the father of one of my best childhood friends. Randy taught me a lot about baseball, and other Sports. He will be missed.

I am very sorry to read about Randy's passing. He was way too young. I worked with Randy for 25 years a C&C, and considered him one of the "Good Guys"...always a hard, dependable, and always funny.
My condolences to his wife and family. You are in my prayers.
