Randy was a close personal friend and brother officer at the Montgomery County S.O. Many dont know or remember, Randy and I traded shifts for a couple months, him doing midnights, me covering day watch. Unfortunately, Randy was killed on the midnight sfift.
Even though the killer of Randy was sentenced to "Life without parole", he came up for parole about a year ago. With the assistance of the Buckeye State Sheriffs Association, the National Sheriffs Association, the Local, State and National FOP and the Montgomery County S.O. We were able to get his killer flopped for another 10 yrs. Never believe "Life without Parole", means life without parole. Randy was a great young man.
