Randy served our country in the United States Army during the Vietnam conflict and later worked as a truck driver. He was a great American hero who fought many battles for both country and life, whom is no longer suffering and is exalting with our Lord and Savior. He is finally free to ride with the angles. Keep the Harley seat warm. We want a ride through the streets of gold one day. We love you.
