I'm so sorry Carrie for your loss. I'm happy you both were able to have your love story though I'm sure you expected to have it much longer. I know there are many reasons God put you two together at this time in your lives. The day I met Randy sometime in the early 90's I felt immediately connected with his wry humor, wit, and infectious laugh. I felt he was a friend right away instead of a "big bad CEO" of the hospital. I've been lucky to keep that connection since he left the hospital and see him throughout the years at many social events. Each time we met there was so much laughter and silliness it's like we saw each other yesterday! When I first saw you and Randy together I wondered how he scored such a beautiful, smart chick! But you two are so well matched, I couldnt imagine either on with anybody else. Then when Randy got his Diagnosis, and I saw you both at the Lynn Center for his appointments, I was certain God put you both on this earth to be together. No one could have been a more solid rock throughout these three-four months. My selfish bonus, from your visits to Sandler, is I got to know this amazing woman so much better. I know you have a wonderful support system, but if you ever need anything at all, I'm here.

So sad when I heard that you have left this world. May God rock you in his Arms and welcome you into His Kingdom. I am sure that John Doody and Ed White are planning a Jam session. My sincere condolences to your family. Rest In Peace Randy.

Such sad news, but our loss is Heaven's gain. I met Randiy ("Feets") when we were both working at the Upper Arlington Public Library in the late 60's and early 70's. and became fast friends. Our mutual love of guitar playing,writing, and singing resulted in countlless wonderful jam sessions over the years since then, even after he moved to Florida. Randy was without question the most positive, and upbeat person I have ever met. He was and will remain an ongoing inspiration for me, and for so many others. His life was a priceless gift., and I will be eternally grateful to have known him as a good friend.. My deepest condolences to you Carrie and to all those he leavers behind.

I've just discovered the news of Randy's passing - such sad news. He will always have a place in my heart and in the hearts of all who know him.

Kelly Moody, "Feets" and I had many memorable evenings together playing music and speaking of philosophy, poetry, love, and life. at Kelly's house in the mid 70's. Everyone who Randy cam e in contact with will remember his optimism, charm, and his wonderful infectious laughter that would lift a room. He is dearly missed,

Thinking of Feets. I do remember this poem on Kelly's Wall which we would all be able to quote., still I am sure: It feels the right time to pass it on -

“The clock of life is wound but once,
And no man has the power
To tell just when the hands will stop
At late or early hour.

To lose one's wealth is sad indeed,
To lose one's health is more,
To lose one's soul is such a loss
That no man can restore.

The present only is our own,
So live, love, toil with a will,
Place no faith in "Tomorrow,"
For the Clock may then be still.”

To the family and friends of Randy, Wendy and my thoughts and prayers are with you during this most difficult time. It is not easy for words to express the magnitude of our sympathy.

For those of us that knew Randy from the hospital knew him as a dynamic speaker and leader but in my mind his greatest attribute was the way he cared for the employees, all 1,500 or so of us. When you take a job in healthcare you often hear about the “good ole days” which happened years ago. Those of us lucky enough to be working with Randy didn’t have to reminisce about those days because we knew Randy was creating them for us right then. Who can forget the Talent Shows which showcased so many talented employees or the Hospital Picnics at the Polo Grounds. If that wasn’t enough and never to be out done was the Y2K New Year’s Eve party in November (fireworks included) which he put on since most of his management team would be working that New Year’s Eve making sure the computer equipment worked the next day. Randy was seen throughout the hospital daily taking the time to stop and chat with everyone he passed. I truly think he knew every employees name. Randy would definitely be at the top of the list of leaders who knew how to relate too and take care of his employees.

I’ve mentioned about Randy being our leader or boss but in reality he was just one of us. What a great person who will be truly missed.

Wendy and I believe there is something bigger in store for us after we’ve served our time here on earth. That said with those dear friends that have also passed on I know there will be some great music waiting for us when we join them.

Rest in peace, Randy.

Our condolences to Carrie, Alan and Family.

I, Salvatore, first met Randy in the early 90's when we had a mutual interest in golf. We signed up at Sandalfoot Country Club for ten lessons. From then on we started playing gold regularly. Randy played most weekends with many friends. On his 60th birthday he not only got a hole-in-one,, he won a car! Wow!!

We both had a deep love for music. He consistently invited me to jam at his home which began a 20-year joy not only with Randy but also with John, Ed, Jay, Chris, Jim, and many friends stopping by all the time. Wednesday Band Night became the highlight of our week. We called ourselves "Just Some Guys". In its simplicity, our name was profound and revealed the Truth of our essence.

My wife, Sarena, a practitioner of Mindbody Medicine, knew and respected Randy through her relationship with Boca Raton Regional Hospital. Everyone at the hospital respected Randy and loved working for and with him.

We will always respect and remember Randy for his warmth, sense of humor, caring and loving (especially for his Beloved Carrie), talent, team building, business expertise and Love of Life.

Thank you Randy for the memories and music. You will forever be missed.

Randy's light shone bright at Boca Community Hospital, where he was able to put a smile on everyone's face regularly, because he always had one on his. He shared his presence, his optimism and his music with all of us, and we were proud to have him as a leader. It's hard to believe that this vibrant and youthful man is gone. He will be missed by many. My sincere condolences.

Randy was a very special person, and although our relationship was brief, we were able to spend time together working on a number of construction projects over the years. It was a sudden loss when we received word that he had passed, and we would have no more time together.
He will be fondly remembered, and missed.
