Randy worked for Blaw-Knox for much of his life. He had inherited a love of gardening from his dad and tried diligently to pass it on to his children. It didn't take. But what he did pass on was a love of reading and books. Randy loved to read mysteries and westerns. His favorite authors included Robert B. Parker, Louis L'Amour, and Dick Francis. His daughter became a librarian, and his son loves to read.

His family loved him deeply, and he loved them, especially his wife, who he was delighted by all of their almost 47 years of marriage. In lieu of flowers, spend time with your family and those you love, in Randy's memory.
