    We are so sad to hear of Randy’s passing. May the Lord comfort you and sweet memories of Randy sustain all of you through this difficult time. We enjoyed our over the fence chats with him and the laugh he would always give us. In our prayers, your neighbors, Robert and Janice

    Randy was terrific. He was funny, kind, and honest. He also listened. Just a few weeks ago, we had some great quality time together. I feel like I was just starting to get to see the best of him. I am very sad that he has left us so soon. Family times in AR just won’t be the same. There’ll, definitely, be an odd empty spot on game nights. He made being competitive a household requirement. Luv ya, Randy 🙂

    Randy was a fantastic brother-in-law. Years ago my husband had cancer and Randy called to say “hey girl, don’t worry about mowing your grass, I’ve got it”. We have 5 acres! I first met Randy in junior high and he always had everyone laughing as he said what he thought with his southern drawl. Our family get togethers will forever have a vacant chair especially playing dominoes as he was the first to say let’s play. I could write a book about this wonderful man who I miss so much. He was my friend and will be watching over us. We will meet again Randy.

    I had the privilege of hiring and working with Randy at ACH. He was a great mechanic who would do whatever it took to get the job done. We are all diminished when we loose a man of this caliber. Rest well my friend.
