  1. I used to work with Randy at Lamar in Wellington. He was always upbeat and brought a smile to your face with his happy personality. My prayers to his family, I know this is a tragic loss for you all.

  2. I had the opportunity to supervise Randy in high school and also at Dillons. He was a great young man who I always enjoyed. Prayers of peace for his family.

  3. I went to school in Wellington with Randy; haven’t seen or heard from him in years. Was truly heartbroken to hear of his passing. Randy was a fabulous friend and I will always cherish memories of him. My deepest sympathy to his family.

  4. Randy was one of a kind and always supportive of his friends that he also claimed as family and we were blessed he claimed us. So many nights him and Carl playing golf on the computer are a life time of joyous memories. He was a brother to us. Rest In Peace

  5. Words cannot replace the gratitude that I have for you. As some will say “This was part of God’s plan”…This really hurts!! Gonna miss seeing your Cheshire cat smile buddy. You”‘ll remain in David and my Heart 4-ever.

  6. Of all the guys in High School, you never, ever judged and always had an open mind and great heart. Sleep well dear friend.

  7. I known randy since I was a kid my dad and him were good friends in wellington. I work with him at Harlow for 3 years it was a real pleasure to have worked with him to hear all of the funny stories my dad and him shared. I’m really going to miss him picking on me at work asking me if we wanted to fight. Haha my thoughts and prayers go out to the family, friends, and the Harlow family.

  8. I am shocked to hear of Randy’s passing. He was definitely taken too young. He was always full of energy and life and will truly be missed. Goodbye to a cool classmate.
