We all knew Randy, many of us from grade school on. He was a good guy.

Randy and I hung out our junior year. I know for sure that I laughed more that year than any time in my life. We couldn't even look at each other w/o becoming hysterical. Lord, we had fun. Once, sitting in his sloped drive-way in my '51 Chevy, he was lighting firecrackers and tossing them out the window. Well, apparently a spark fell onto his lap and the string of crackers exploded. His feet slammed against the floor board and he launched into the back seat, bellaring. Once I notched his ear with some shears trying to trim his hair. We had a couple close scrapes with the law, but caught a break. Other times, well let's just say, I'd rather not say. His pencil thin lips and his expressive eyes; he knew he could crack me up with just a look. He looked up to his brother, Dennis, and I think felt a bit cheated he couldn't follow in his Army steps. Randy had tragically lost his father before him and I met. We spent alot of time at the Boy's Club and going to the beach, even when it meant cutting school to do it. Neither of us were too smart. His mother was a beautiful lady, and I feel for her loss. I learned of Randy's passing just as I was completing basic training. My mom sent me his obituary, asking: Is this your friend? I still hurt for his loss. If he could have just waited, I think I could have gotten him a gig as a stand-up comic. See ya, on the other side, my old friend
