We will remember Randy as a wonderful father, husband, grandfather, brother, and uncle to his family. He was very caring and giving, and he became instant friends with anyone he met. His true passions were guitars, cars, and cigars. After becoming a very talented, self-taught guitarist, he played with several bands across the United States and the United Kingdom. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.
