Wow Randy it's now 4 years since we lost you! I miss you everyday and will love you forever. Your son is growing up so quickly and he is such a sweet and intelligent boy. He reminds me of you more and more everyday. I know my sister misses seeing you and those beautiful blue eyes, but you would be so proud of how she's handled things during this terrible loss in her life. Love you lots! Paula xox

Hey there Randy! While I did not know you long I use your quotes often and would like to let you know that you have helped many through these words. I would have liked to have known you longer but your memory is never far from my mind. You're missed. Happy Birthday!
Always, Greg Markle

Randy: Although we only saw each at "The Family Picnic" once a year, it was always a big hug and kiss on the cheek for each other. I always liked you and respected you. May you rest in our Lord's loving arms and know that Patrice and Jake will be loved and hugged just as if you were still with us.

Randy - I'll never forget what a sweet and insightful person you were; always thinking of others and never taking anything for granted. You never failed to inspire me, and at the same time made me laugh! I remember you complaining about the music at the gym, then watching you slow dance with a dumbell in your arms...I'll always love you, and you'll always be inside my heart.

Not everyone chases their dreams and it impressed me that you were doing just that. My time with you was all too short, but it was my pleasure to know you. Many loved you and I've let your family know I'm there for them should they need a helping hand to fill the void left by your passing. I'll miss you Randy, rest in Peace.

For years we were blessed with Randy's presence each morning at 6:30am before he began work. He would always help us begin our day in a positive way. I will continue to pray for Patrice & their family. I know in my heart that he would want all to find happiness again, in time. His friend Robert G

Randy - just looking at a Ruggiero group photo taken at the family picnic back in 1999 when we first met. It brings back wonderful memories of a great day we all had and of a wonderful family we are part of - even though my family are the adopted part. You know that Patrice and Jacob are in good hands and Nicole is too. We'll all miss you.
Posted by Paula Ruggiero on November 5, 2011
Randy - What am I going to do without you? I still cannot believe you are gone! I will love you forever and you may be gone but the memories of you will live on forever in my mind and in my heart. You were such an amazing person and I wish we could have had more time together! I promise to watch over Patrice and Jacob for you. I miss you so much! xox

Dearest family and friends , 
I used to weight train with Randy back in the day , so so many fond memories of him and stories we shared but one of them that stands out for me was when I was asked to come over and do has lawn and sprinkler system in his front yard in fairway park , about half way to almost finished which he helped alot while jamming our favorite heavy metal music his neighbor came over and was talking to him , later Randy told me that his neighbor had said " its really really great to have family over to help you do your yard especially your brother " Never really took that to heart thinking I looked like him until at his memorial service his daughter told me " You don't know how much you really look like my dad " . Seeing this morning has brought tears to my eyes thinking of you and all that we shared , much love to you and your family and remember its never goodby its always " See Ya Later " , Your Brother From Another Mother , Michael Sean Stotts

Randy, the trickster ...

It was you, dear Randy, who ultimately brought my beautiful PatricA into my life. You kinda "tricked" her into speaking for you at a meeting. You were determined that she could get "this thing we have" only she didn't know it. She reluctantly did as she said she would do, and showed up for you. That August night in 1997 all our lives changed, forever for better. Since then we have all grown in love and understanding for one another. Your persistence paid off and your little flower, Patricie, bloomed and blossomed. She rapidly grew to become the strong, sober woman you always knew she could be.

You are well respected and deeply loved my friend. I will miss you terribly and remember you with fondness and deep affection.

Your Sister in The Fellowship,

Anita L T

P.S. Enjoy The Big Meeting...and save me a seat.
