We miss Randy enormously, always was good natured well spoken stopped by the house sometimes just to say hello and even dropped off a Amish pie, said he bought on his way up thru but decided he shouldn't eat it himself, Really miss his hunting story's a lot always made them so interesting even left some venison sometimes, boy hard to think of him being gone, generous , polite, serving the public in so many ways Wow. Once he came to Pine Meadows Church Kidz Klub Bought his blood hound gave a lecture and a demonstration how the hound could find lost person, Oh how the children loved it, well I did too.
Love Margaret and David Hall

I have such fond memories of Randy. He was always kind, thoughtful and caring. I learned much from him and our occasional trips to see Frenchie, an excellent fiddle player and a teller of fine tales. Randy, I will continue to think of you everytime someone plays that instrument. My heart felt condolences for all who are in mourning.

Randy’s humor, one line zingers and pearls of wisdom will be sorely missed. I can’t count how many times I laughed till I cried. Gone too soon, but good memories of you live on. Rest In Peace now Commander Salamander.

My deepest condolences to Randy’s family and friends. Randy was one of my father’s (Wayne Masters) best friends. They shared a love of the outdoors and hunting and I was always thankful for the laughter and fun that Randy provided to him during some difficult times. Hoping the two of them are up there telling stories and having some laughs together again.
