Barb, I am so very sorry to hear about Randy. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I'm having a Mass said for him on Fri., June 5 at the Carmelite Monastery in Denmark(7am). There is a very small chapel there. Time will heal the heartache. Please give my sympathy to his parents. Take care, Vicki Anderson.

Dear Barbara, We were very sad to read the obit of Randy in the Green Bay Press Gazette. We met the both of you in Nicolet Bay on our sailboats and always had very nice conversations. In fact, we had Randy's name on Craigs desk at home to call if we ever were selling our boat "Sails Call". It did come up before we saw the paper. Last time we talked with Randy he was alone in his dingy, last summer; and he asked about some of Craig's health issues. We are interested in what happened as we feel that 59 is way too young! We will miss your visits and smiles and would like to hear from you if possible. God give you strength during this time. Sincerely, Joyce and Craig Paynter

Barb & Family , Can not express how saddened I was to hear the news of Randy's passing. He and I were colleagues in the field of RT when we were both starting out (he at St. E's and myself at Theda Clark). While we have lost touch over the years the things we shared on both a professional and personal level in the 70's and 80's are memories I will always hold close. He was a good man and friend. Can not imagine how much he will be missed by everyone. May you find comfort in your memories and those little things that made life together so special. God Bless , chuck wismer

Barb, Firstly, I would like to tell you that I met you & your husband a few years ago when I was doing curbing estimates for Curb Creations. Randy & I corresponded via e-mail answering questions back & forth, then finally meeting at your home to measure & then a contract was signed with my brother-in-laws company. After the work was done, not only did I receive an e-mail complimenting us on our work, clean-up & speed of delivery but Randy also sent us a letter to show to our prospective clients. He went out of his way for us ~ not many people do that these days & we appreciate him! He was very nice working with & always talked so kindly of you. You have a lost a wonderful & genuine man. With deepest sympathy, Jody Meidam

Dear Mae & Wally, My sincere sympathy in the loss of Randy. What a shock. I know Dorothy (Mom) would also want me to express her sympathy to you as well. She is not well enough to understand, unfortunately. Maybe Art (Dad) and Randy will bump into each other! You take care of each other and keep strong.

On vacation at Fayette, MI, I saw a couple approach our young son on the beach. They asked if he knew "Genevieve", our daughter. He replied, "She's my sister!" They had come from the harbor, knowing that we might be there, hoping to take her on another sailing on their boat. Randy was wonderful kind to his niece's friend, our daughter. We love him and his wife Barb. We will miss him! He is at PEACE! David F & Lola Daniels

Randy was one of the most wonderful people in this world. Very kind and generous with his praise. I was Randy's secretary at St. E's for a number of years. I look back at all of the bosses I have had in my life and constantly compare them to Randy. I wish they all could be so kind, compassionate, and considerate. I can't tell you how sad I am. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Jennifer Lautenbach Blanford left a message on April 28, 2009:
Dear Barb and family - I was very saddened to hear about the loss of Randy. My deepest sympathy goes out to you and your family. I worked for Randy at St E's from 1989-1995. He was a very kind, fair, caring and compassionate manager. As a single mom during my St E's days Randy also took an interest in my son and he and Barb spent some special time with him being a positive role model in his life. My son is now an adult but still remembers the times Randy spent with him. This shows the type of man Randy was - always caring about others. Randy will be deeply missed. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
Hank Hart left a message on April 28, 2009:
Barb, Randy was known to all of us as a caring professional who understood the value of people, patients in his care and the "business" of health care. We knew Randy in many capacities over the last 20 years as we interacted with him. Randy always had the best interest of the client/patient at the top of his agenda, secondly he cared deeply for the people with whom he worked, as suppliers and vendors we saw this everytime we met. God Bless you and your family, our prayers and thoughts are with you. The Wisconsin Respironics Team. Barb O'Leary, Kathy Lester-Ross, Jack Fedell and Hank Hart.
