Randy and I were classmates in the planning program at UT, and we reconnected a few years ago when he was still with RECON. We had lunch on a few occasions, and I recall him telling me about his illness. I though that he had beat it; I'm so saddened to learn that he had not. He was a good planner, and a good man.

Joanne........just today heard the terribly sad news. So many fond memories of Randy and you in the RECON days of SanDiego and our one visit with you all in Austin. So sorry we lost touch over the years. Hugs to you and your daughters.

Dear Joanne, Kelly and Cheryl,
Not only are memories of Randy filled with smiles and fun, they are filled with wonderful discussions, tears, political and personal conversations. He gave great advice, but he listened even better.
I feel so lucky to have had time with all of you when I was a student in Austin, and then again during that brief time in Southern California a few years back, as Randy left Houston when I was still so young--but I remember him

Dear Joanne and family,
I was deeply saddened to hear of Randy's passing. I worked with Randy off and on for close to 20 years and it was always a pleasure, both professionally and personally. We have not forgotten his creative inspiration that put us together with RECON for the first BCCP, a project that helped put our fledging company on the map. He was a talented and generous colleague and friend and many of us here at Hicks & Company

I have know Randy since we fingerpainted together in Kindergarten. He quickly grew to be "full size" in middle school towering over all who played with him and those who had to face him on the Kinkaid gridiron. #44 excelled on the field, setting that single game rushing record, in the classroom and in life. He faced and fought his cancer with the same fortitude and grace that he did all challenges in his life. I will always treasure his

We knew Randy as "Cheryl's Dad". He was a wonderful father - calm, supportive and kind. He obviously adored his family and was a very involved Dad.
Our deepest sympathy to Joanne, Cheryl and Kelly-

I HEARD ABOUT RANDY'S PASSING FROM A TXDOT EMPLOYEE.
HOW INCREDIBLY DIFFICULT THIS SORROWFUL TIME MUST BE FOR YOU, KELLY, CHERYL AND THE REST OF THE FAMILY.
I FIRST MET RANDY AS A CONSULTANT FOR TXDOT. RANDY LATER BECAME A TXDOT EMPLOYEE SEVERAL MONTHS BEFORE I RETIRED FROM TXDOT.
JENISE WALTON AND JIM BARTA, BOTH CURRENT TXDOT EMPLOYEES, CONVINCED ME THAT RANDY WOULD BE A TREMENDOUS ASSET TO TXDOT--AND THEY WERE CORRECT. RANDY DEMONSTRATED HIS CREATIVE SPIRIT, CLASSY CHARACTER, UNSELFISHNESS, INCREDIBLE KNOWLEDGE AND

Randy was my mother's brother, Curtis's youngest son and the closest cousin to my age, so I knew Randy a bit better than his brothers and sister. He was a wonderful, compassionate and caring person who was devoted to his wife and kids. He was always so upbeat and positive, even as he fought his illness. I will always remember his big smile and hearty laugh and will miss him greatly. My thoughts and prayers are with his family right
