Got word in the shoutbox that Randy had a heart attack today and passed.

If anyone can add any info about services or anything like that, please do so.

RIP Randy, you will be missed.

Randy was a real American, loved by all. Always willing to help someone in need. He loved his family, and stayed by their side when they needed him the most. He spent countless nights praying and asking our Lord God to take his sister in law off the ventilator. Randy prayed day in and day out for her, and asked others to do the same as she struggled and eventually came off it. Randy put his family before all else. I will always remember Randy. He was a good man, and I cannot say I would be standing here today if it wasn't for him and his benevolent ability to welcome and calm the souls of many. Be well Randy, we all love you, and will carry you with us in our daily walks with God

Very sad news to hear of Randy's passing.
Always so positive, and so helpful to everyone.
Rest in peace brother Randy, and many prayers to all of your family, and very close friends.

Met Randy for a gun deal at Christmas, we talked for a couple hours standing in the bass pro parking lot.
It is just unbelievable that heís left us at such a young age.
RIP Randy

I was going through some very dark times last summer after me and my girl split and took my step son back to Texas. I fractured my ankle pretty horribly, in four places. I had no one to help me out, but he did. I couldn't drive. He didn't want me to Uber or anything like that. He took me to appointments, took me to the Rx. We had some very good conversations and I'm still around due to some of them. Rest in peace Randy.

I'm going to miss Randy, great conversation every day in the SB and a great guy all around. R.I.P. buddy. I never had the chance to meet him in person but he always said Hi Dad and I'm going to miss that.

Good morning. Any one who is going to be going to Randy's services either Friday or Saturday, please dress in comfortable attire. We do not expect people to be dressed formal that is not the kind of guy Randy was. Just respectfully.

Thank you.
