Saradean: Pam and I are deeply saddened by Randy’s passing. I, truly, enjoyed our many years working together in District Two. His infectious laughter at our common “situations” made our job tolerable. His humor during difficult times eased the stress. My prayer is that your loss and sadness will be replaced by the fond memories that Randy has left us with. Dean and Pam Crabtree

He helped me a lot in a very difficult time in my life.I will always have fond memories of him and my condolences go out for the family. He made a positive influence on my life when I was at BC. I know for a fact that he is with the Father in heaven and look forward to seeing him again!! Rick Brown

Randy and his family became our neighbors in West Columbia when I and Kaye, his sister, were 5. Randy was 8. We were together until we all got out of high school but we stayed in touch as we all went in different directions in life. I’ll never forget his laugh, his humor, and his goodness. He was always happy. I know his suffering is over and he’s now in his heavenly home with his Mom,Dad & sister. I know he will be missed. Prayers and love to Sarah Dean, Kaye and the entire family.
