To Randy's wife Doris and immediate and extended family, please accept my sincere condolences on your loss.
Randy and I were school mates and friends on Bell Island in the 1960s/early 70s as well as relatives...our grandfathers were brothers. After decades, it was great to reconnect with him in the summer of 2018 while I was in the Sarnia area. He spoke proudly of his family and was a great host and tour guide to me.
May you find strength in numbers; love and comfort in one another.

Sending my sincere condolences to the extended families of Randy and Doris. I first met him when I was a 3rd year apprentice and he was fairly new Journeyman working for State Electric at the new Sarnia Observer building. I never had a better tool partner. He was a gentleman from start to finish and a great person to be around. I'm very sorry for your loss.
