I had the opportunity to work with Randy over the 30 years with Arnold Motor Supply . He was a dedicated well informed salesman that will be missed. Condolences to his family .

I had the pleasure of working with Randy over the last few years. As we rode and talked, he mentioned his family often and was proud of his daughter. He also mentioned may experiences with the fire department and how he enjoyed helping others. The world is a lesser place with his loss. He will truly be missed.
