Randy was a lifelong member of the Glencoe Church of Christ. He was devoted to God and spoke of his faith to all friends, family, hospital, rehab center employees and other patients. He often called his year long illness a blessing because he was able to reach out and speak about his Christian faith to more people than he had previously in his life. He stated many times that he would willingly choose to go through his final illness if it meant that even one more person would be in heaven. His co-workers often speak of his devotion to God, his honesty, his kindness and his humbleness.
