I enjoyed working with Randy at Hartville Hardware! I have great memories of him. His famous quote was “don’t put all your eggs in one basket” Rest In Peace Randy!
My heart goes out to the family. I will miss his humor and genuine friendliness whenever we met. I will always remember him giving us car rides in his old blue convertible in the apple orchard when I was a kid. I’m pretty sure he has everyone in Heaven laughing by now.
There are special people you meet in life that you never forget. Randy was one of those people. If you didn’t like Randy, It wasn’t Randy. He treated everyone great.
I worked with him and bought things from him. Honestly, integrity, and dedication. I will miss him at Hartville Hardware. I always like talking with him. He was my friend. The God’s peace, comfort and strength be given to his family.
He left a great legacy to many.
