  4. My heart goes out to you Sue and to both families. I got to travel with Randy for several years in Atlantic Canada. A passionate and true glove guy he was. In the years since he looked after the territory customers still ask how he’s making out. Everyone knew who Randy was and loved dealing with him, and he was a blast to travel with We were always laughing and figuring how and where we were going to get the next big order.
    I’ll miss you Randy. Hail to the Cod Muncher.

  7. I knew Randy from playing music with our mutual friend Gary Vincent in Calgary after high school. Randy and I were at many gigs and parties at the same time and shared many of the same friends. I jammed with him at his old house and recorded with him at Jim Cretney’s studio back in the day as well. I will remember Randy as full of life, funny and with a passion for music and living life to the fullest. I was so very sad to hear of his passing and wish Sue and Randy’s family our deepest and most sincere condolences.

  25. Randy and I met in Jr. High over 40 years ago and became good friends. I remember fondly our many crazy adventures…camping, going to concerts, playing music, socializing, and getting into a bit a trouble from time to time. Randy was larger than life, always happy, smiling, and he had a positive outlook on everything. He was always willing to lend a helping hand and support me throughout my life and I will miss him greatly. He was taken from all of us much too soon. My sincerest condolences to Sue and family, and I hope the wonderful memories you have of Randy will bring you comfort in the days ahead. Rest in peace “buddy”.
