A man I knew as my father and friend. I have wonderful memories with him and those will be the things I cherish most. I learned how to be strong from him, how to live and be responsible for myself, but most of all to never give up. As you can now see the impact you had on the world and people in your life. You are greatly missed and never will be forgotten. Thank you for loving me unconditionally and for always being there. Just a phone call away you always said. I love you.

I had the pleasure of working with Randy for many years through his position at Premier Transportation. He will truly be missed. He used to tease me about my fascination with getting to meet Dale Earnhardt, Jr., and he did everything he could to try to make it happen, even getting us tickets to Charlotte Motor Speedway a few years back. I haven't gotten to meet Jr. yet, but I know Randy will be smiling when I do!

My husband has

Randy was so fun to be around. He made me laugh many times. Always was willing to lend me a helping hand. Invited me and my dog to visit with him and Carol where we had lots of fun.
I will miss Randys smile.
My love and prayers for his family
God Bless

Dear God, lift up this family in their time of grief, wrap your loving arms around them so that they may find comfort that only you can give. We know their hearts are breaking God, sustain them in their anguish, and into the darkness of their grief bring the light of your love. Through Jesus we pray.

My dad, Arnold Brown, thought very highly of Randy. I remember seeing him Dad's viewing. His presence then was greatly appreciated. Our heart
