He was an employee of the Clark County Ambulance district for almost 40 years. He loved his job and saving lives and being a mentor was just part of it.

Randy was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, and friend. He never knew a stranger and had a distinct, contagious laugh. He loved playing bingo, going to the casino’s, and taking car rides. He was very proud of his sons and the young men they grew up to be.
