  • I considered Randy an “angel on earth.” He was always so kind and selfless. I believe god brought Randy and Judy into my life for many reasons, But the most important reason was family. They have blessed us countless times and I will never forget all the love and special moments I experienced with them. I love you so much and I will miss you dearly. Thank you so much for everything you’ve done for me and all the fun times we shared. I’m so glad I got to spend so much time with you, I wish I could spend more. I love you forever.

  • So sorry. Randy was like a brother. So glad we got to work together at the Napa store. May God’s grace carry the family through this very hard time.

You both spent a large part of your lives serving others and selflessly blessing many families, including my own. Thank you for so much for everything you’ve done in my life. I love you Judy.

  • So sorry to hear of Randy’s passing. He was a very nice guy. Condolences to his family and friends.

  • Although Randy was out of our sight for many years, he was always on our minds and in our hearts. We have many wonderful memories to cherish. He was sweet, funny and the life of a party. Rich enjoyed it when Randy would stop in his office to talk after making deliveries. Rest In Peace Randy, until we meet again. Deepest condolences to Judy and family. Love, Uncle Dick, Aunt Dianna, Rich, Sheryl & Amy

  • Judy I’m so sorry for your loss!
    I worked with Randy in the tool room, every morning on my way to the area that I worked I would stop and talk with Randy and Mike about all the Bull…. that we as employees, dealt with on a daily basis and daily politics. Randy will always be in my thoughts!
    God Bless Randy and your family!

  • Dearest Judy,
    Dave and I are so sorry for your loss and our loss too. We loved you two so very much. Randy made my beginning school years days so wonderful. He painted bookshelves, made those old wire cases so beautiful way back in 2002-2003.
    Judy, you were my angel to come and work in my classroom the last 2-3 years that I taught at MCS. You were so creative and everyone of the kids loved you sooo much. You took pictures of everything we did. The butterfly release was so awesome. You should have been a photographer. You made Randy’s eyes sparkle everytime he saw you!! We loved watching all the Oho State Football games together with you. We loved going to the Gaither’s to hear them in concert at the Nationwide bldg. in Columbus. We loved everything about you. We loved the way you and Randy showed love to everyone, especially children. Randy will be rewarded in Heaven and so will you. We love you and pray for you. Saunnie and Dave Cassell

  • My thoughts and prayers go out to Randy’s family. I also have known Randy for as long as I can remember. We were good buddies growing up in the Grasmere Avenue neighbourhood. Always looking for a pickup basketball game or backyard football game. He truly was just a really good guy. Sincerely Dave Jung

  • Judy,
    We are so sorry that we can’t embrace you at a time when there is nothing better than a heart felt hug. We always enjoyed being around Randy and you. Looking forward to seeing you in person.

  • One of Randy’s many great qualities was that he was able to make you feel welcome and comfortable at all times. He had a special personality that made you feel like you knew him a lifetime. A man of high character and a selfless soul, Randy was a loving part of the last two years of my life that I wish could be extended past his departure. One calm and resting notion that I have is that there is no doubt in my mind that we will meet again one day. The Lord received one of the most amazing souls ever created, and I am eternally grateful to have been blessed to know Randy and have him in my life.

    To Randy’s loving wife Judy, I am deeply sorry for your loss. You and Randy always treated me with the upmost love and respect and it means the world to me. When I go back and look at all the family photos of Jay’s birthdays or Clays graduation party, I get overwhelmed with joy and happiness rather than sadness. That’s how I know Randy was a one of a kind man, and I am so thankful to have been impacted by his grace. I miss you dearly Judy, thank you from the bottom of my heart for the love and compassion you have shared with me.

    To Randy, see you again in the Lords Kingdom. Rest easy my friend.


  • Randy was always calm, cool, and collected. Randy was generally very easy-going, unless, of course, you crossed his wife or his children. Don’t dare hurt his wife or children, haha. Randy was a great protector.

    Randy was the most giving, selfless man we have ever encountered, undeniably putting other’s needs before his. Randy absolutely mastered Philippians 2 verse 3: “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility, value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interest, but each of you to the interest of others.”
    Randy was that humble, selfless, Godly man.

    Every Christmas, Randy and Judy would pull up to our house and bring bags and bags of presents. My kids thought he was the real Santa Clause, and he was to so many…..whether children or adult, he was Santa Claus.

    Randy and Judy came to The kids’ sporting events, birthdays, graduations, and baptisms, and, of course, Judy had the kids all dolled up for every occasion.

    We often ask God, “How did we become so lucky and blessed to have Randy and Judy in our lives? What did we ever do to deserve this? He’s not family. We are not related, and yet, he treats us like his very own.” It wasn’t long before we realized Randy was family. He was our brother in Christ whom we didn’t deserve, but gladly accepted as a gift from God.

    Randy was an encourager, always there for a shoulder to lean on if my kids needed advice or encouragement.

    Let’s not forget many, many sleepovers and pool parties, trips to Myrtle Beach and Kings Island.

    Randy never complained, even when he was in pain, you’d never know. He was a helper, a giver, and just a good ole American, Chevy, Buckeye Man.

    He is our knight in shining armor. He will truly be missed by all. In our hearts always! We love you, Randy❤️
