Memories Timeline


  1. So sorry for your loss and mine. Randy was a very sweet boy growing up. I saw him in Walmart at Biscoe before this old Covid 19 started, hadn’t seen him in years, I mean years. He was very nice and still sweet as ever. RIP. I Pray Randy. You lived a hard life growing up without your parents. Go fly high with the Angels you sure deserve it. Prayer’s for the family and friends.
    Love and miss you little friend.

  2. Had many good times together me you and Bobby joe can’t believe my good friend is gone. Now you have made it, go rest high on Gods mountain, will miss you

  3. David and I wondered about Babe once he left the big town of Robbins was sorry to hear of his passing.Time has certainly passed on quickly since we all worked together at the long time Robbins Mill. We shared food and good times and Babe taught me never to ride a motorcycle with someone who thinks going super fast is really fun. He also said most things were more or less so I hope he had figured out if it was more or less before he left us on this earth.I think we all want more blessings and alot less suffering in this old world but we can’t pick or choose how the chips fall.Rest in peace our old friend.

  4. Farewell old friend! I remember working with Randy at the Sheriff’s Office. He used to run around with Bryan and me, making our own pizzas at Pizza Hut in Aberdeen and late night visits to Howard Johnsons! I still remember Randy locking me in the jail one night when we were told we had to have TB tests and I was scared of needles…needless to say I got my test! Randy went to BLET in Troy with us…getting him up and to class on time was always a challenge, and another laugh usually at Randy’s expense! Much simpler times, fond memories!

    You were a good friend, Randy. You’ll be missed. God bless!
