The halls of Bradford High were graced with Randy's presence, as were we his classmates. Great smile, wonderful sense of humor, and a humility that touched those he touched. Randy got to marry his first love, raise children, and never got out of school.....because it was his dream. I am sorry I wont get the chance to attend in person, but my thoughts and prayers are already there. Randy was one of the classmates I most remember simply because he was an effortless class act who will be fondly remembered and truly missed.

Words cannot express my sorrow of Randy's passing. He and his entire family were like a second family to me as we grew up. I always considered him a brother. The memories I have of him as my college roommate will never be forgotten. He was trulymy favorite person that I had the honor of knowing in my life.
