My deepest sympathy and prayers to Randy's wife and family. I worked with Randy at the Greene County Sheriff's Department and was not aware of his death until now. Randy was a great officer and man. He was honorable and I enjoyed learning from him. When I was a new detective I rode with Randy in training one shift to pick up sex offenders who had failed to register. Randy treated the sex offenders with respect just as he did everyone. Randy was one of our range instructors and was so helpful to me on the range. That is how he was with everyone. I admired and respected Randy a lot and I am so sorry to read about his death. I'm sure Randy had no regrets in his law enforcement career because he always held himself to the highest standard. He was an honorable cop and person and I think that is one of the highest compliments I can pay him. God Bless.
