Randy was a kind, gentle soul who wanted nothing more than to put a smile on your face. His interests/hobbies included Star Wars, Marvel, telling jokes, bowling, and spending time with his friends and family. There was never a dull moment with Randy in the room, as at least one person at all times was laughing from one of his corny jokes.
Randy had the most infectious laugh one could hear. He was always trying to do something to make someone laugh, whether it was by telling jokes or making silly faces. He was always there to comfort you in his own goofy way. If you were feeling sad before, you wouldn’t be once you got around Randy. He touched so many people’s lives by just being him.
Randy always made everyone feel loved. Whether it was a waitress at a restaurant or his friends at the bowling alley, he always wanted to talk to them and had to hug them hello and goodbye. He had a great joy and happiness that he shared with everyone he met. Randy would love to color and make his own cards. He loved the simplest things. He loved playing games on his phone, listening and singing to music, and bowling with his friends and teammates. Randy was a true miracle and just loved life. I am very grateful that I was able to be his mom and fight every war with him. I miss him soo much and the love and happiness he embodied. I’ll always love and cherish you and the time we had. Love Mommy
Randy did not have an easy life, but he lived every minute of it. He approached each day with a smile and loved to talk to his friends. He loved to sing (horribly lol) and I miss that voice every second of the day. He had a sense of humor that was corny, cheesy, and completely unique to him. Randy made me laugh harder than anyone I’ve ever met in my life. And him not being here has made me cry harder than I ever have in my life. Randy marched through this life a happy young man with only the simplest of things that brought him joy. Looking back now on his life, I see how much we could all learn from him. He was the best of us. Happy, joyous, and only saw the good in people. He is my son, and I’m very proud and honored to be able to call myself his dad. My love for you goes beyond forever, my beautiful son....love Daddy
