He ran a successful auction site for pigeons. Randy was crazy about his family, proud of each and every one for their special gifts and talents. He was passionate about animals, with more than 200+ pigeons, 5 dogs, 2 cats, a rooster and likely some additional animals in the barn the family hadn’t yet met. He was working towards breeding his newest Labradors. Music was a significant part of his daily routine. He played the guitar and sang beautifully. He was a talented writer, often sneaking in the occasional poem or song he wrote for his special ones. His pigeon friends and neighbors were his family, he loved them all.

    I am so very sorry for your loss. We were classmates since first grade and thanks to Facebook, I was able to know him better in these later years than ever before. I respected him so terribly much and wish I had known him better throughout all of our lives. What a precious individual, respected and loving. I know he is with Jesus now but this earth lost a truly beautiful soul this week. We are praying for your family.

    Totally shocked by these events. Talked with Randy many times. Met he and his wife many years ago in Texas. Wonderful people. Randy was a unique individual, kind, honest and always respectful. I will miss our conversations. May he Rest In Peace, god can always use another pigeon man.

    I grew up knowing Randy. We lived just a street away for many years and I always wondered who the man was who had all those pigeons flying around. One day,I sought him out and he introduced me to my favorite hobby in life, the world of pigeons. Later that year with his direct guidance I won awards for being a junior champion pigeon racer. Randy even wrote an article about it in the racing pigeon digest. Later in life I worked with Randy at the pigeon museum until life circumstances moved me around the country.
    Randy was a rare gentleman and a male figure I needed in my life. I will never forget Randy. A unique individual.
    I was extremely saddened to find out he passed away this year, as I was hoping to reconnect and catchup.
    Randy said something to me once, he said “Ten years after someone passes they are forgotten.” Randy was wise gentleman but he was wrong. He will not be forgotten, even after 50 years. I will tell my sons and daughters about him, and grandchildren about him. His legacy will live on in my family as well as his.

    I want to see him again someday in paradise.

    Daniel “Huck” Tennyson
