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.

If you were a hotdog, and you were starving, would you eat yourself?

HEY, we all know that the moon is not made of green cheese. but what if it was made of barbecue spare ribs, would you eat it then?

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

What a loss. Randy was a class act. Always a pleasure to talk with him. He will be missed.

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 just a guy.

Iam sure going too miss you. You always had encouraging words for me thru the 6 days I spent in ICU with covid in July and now with bladder cancer.
We talked and prayed for your sister. There is NO doubt in my mind where you are. You got too meet your Savior Face too Face

RIP My Brother

Truly sorry to hear this. Always liked randy. He was a valued member of VGT and the Shoutbox. Damn shame when the good folk go early.

Randy was such a great dude. Met up with him several times. The kind of member VGT should be about. Gone too soon.
