I worked with Randy in the 1990s when he worked as a consultant with SCT and I was working at WVU. He was always so kind, so funny and extremely helpful. Condolences to his family.

I met Randy several years ago when he took me under his wing at my first consulting position in Columbia SC. He was kind and funny and smart, and became part of my work family. Our professional paths crossed again a few years ago in Philadelphia, where he showed me how to live in a big city (a first for this southern girl). I am so saddened to learn of his passing. The world is a little darker now.

Very saddened and surprised to hear of Randy's sudden passing. We were classmates  for all 12 years at St. Michaels Elem./High School plus kindergarten before that. Only a few weeks before he passed, we'd reconnected for the first time in 40+ years. Can't believe he's gone. Such a kind person and fine human being; he left us too soon. He will be sorely missed by his family and many friends. 
Condolences to all dear to him.
