  1. Great Man!

    Written by: Mark Wilson

    I used to work with Randy as a customer for ORR at TDS in Middleton WI. I always enjoyed working with him… he was a great person… always friendly, personable and positive. I am so sorry to hear of his passing. He will be sincerely missed by many people… Randy was truly a good man. Condolences.

  2. Dear Jill,
    I am so sorry with the passing of Randy. I remember back in the day when the kids were babies and we had so much fun watching them grow up..My heart is hurting for you, Randy was such a sweet, gentle, and funny man. We all used to laugh and had such a good time telling stories! Even though we haven’t seen each other in quite some time, I wanted you to know that I am thinking of you and your family at this difficult time. I work at The Salvation Army and you are welcome to come see me anytime. My prayers are with you and the children.

  3. Jill and family,

    Randy and I first met over thirty years ago when he taught a fire panel school. He would answered his phone day or night when I would call him with a question on fire panel issues. I always thanked him first for taking my call. He would reply, Shoot Jeff your like family to me, anytime. What’s going on? He always had patience with me and always made me feel comfortable to fix anything with him on the phone. We would text about the Cardinals during a game all the time. Good or Bad. I can’t take your pain away, but let me reassure you I feel your pain of for your loss. He will be truly missed!

  4. Jill
    It is with deep regret that I heard of Randy’s passing.
    Randy was always there to help with any fire system trouble I had, usually we would talk 15-20 min about other things, including family and country politics. When my son was interning at Decatur Memorial hospital, Randy offered him a place to stay if the weather got to bad traveling back to Bloomington. I will always remember as a Great friend! My deepest sympathy to you and family.
