Randy had a great love for the outdoors; he enjoyed writing songs and singing. He would love to create CD’S which he used to hand out at the Cancer Clinic and to anyone who would want one.  Randy had a great sense of humor and was always telling a joke right to the very end.

As per Randy’s wish, cremation has taken place.
