Randy had a huge heart and many friends. He loved to hunt and fish. He was a member of the RC Flying club in Elko. From a very early age he loved anything on wheels or tracks, and the faster the better. He was a mechanical genius and could build anything. If it was broken, he could fix it, and His family and friends were never surprised at what he was dragging home to see it running again in a short time.
He had requested to be cremated so there will be no funeral services. The family will have a celebration of life on Aug. 30 at 1:30 p.m. at the Grace Baptist Church in Elko, Nev., reception to follow in the hall.
