    Awe. Really sad to hear this. Randy made an impact on me as a team mate 45 years ago and I often would still think about him. I often thought it would be great to meet up with him and other team mates from days of past. I moved to Montana in 1981 and lost touch with my past world. Timing again makes it impossible to attend this memorial service. Randy played hockey with such intensity, that we called him “The Bull”, running over anything in his way. The world has really lost a great man. Rest in Peace Randy.
