My sincere condolences to you Lolita & the rest of the family. It was a joy to know Randy for the 20 something years. I always enjoyed the banter, humor & "haggling"! He loved to "dish it out", and also was good natured in receiving it. He will be missed. I am sure his journey is peaceful, and am looking forward to meeting on the other side.

I worked with Randy at Crane, when he was taking care of the facilities.  He was a very nice and caring man and I enjoyed talking to him and working with him.  I didn't know him well, but from what I did he seemed like a wonderful person, I am sure he will be missed.  My prayers are with your family.

I am so sorry to hear of Randy's passing.  I met him when I first started at Crane almost 18 years ago, and then had the pleasure to run into him again when I came out to Small Arms a few years back.  I used to worked at the Credit Union on base, and he was always so kind and funny when he'd stop in.  He loved his family very much and always spoke so highly of you all.  His smile will be missed.

May God help the Burton family find strength and peace of mind with Randy's passing? He may have passed physically, but he will always be with us spiritually. God bless his sole and those whom he left behind.

With sympathy, Charles F. Buxton (former co-worker, NSWC Crane)
