He was loved by everyone who crossed his path. Randy was well known for his strong work ethics, his willingness to help others and had a profound positive presence in the community. He had a generous heart and kind soul. Randy’s adventurous spirit, and zest for life was only surpassed by his infectious smile and love for his wife and kids.
