Goodbye, Randman

Dear friends,

For us forum old timers, I am the bearer of sad news. randman has recently passed away from pneumonia after battling brain cancer.

I'm asking you to share condolences, stories, and memories of the old fart here so that I can pass this on to his kids.

Although there seems to be another , deleted Randman account out there as well, seems he got around a bit...

Rest easy buddy.

For those that may not remember Randman, he was pretty much one of the first handful of members of the forums, and played the cantankerous father/old fart role to many people here.

He fought the good fight. May he rest in peace.

Like my photography? Buy some here....

I didn't know him too well but usually got a kick out of what he had to say. It's now a reasonable time for me to drink, so I raise my beer can to Randman.

Damn, I'm so sorry to hear that he's gone.

I didn't know him well myself, but even so its a damn shame to loose somebody like that. Particularly somebody who was one of the major personalities here on the forum back in the day.

My thoughts are with his family.

I can only imagine how his family must be feeling. He was a great, funny guy and I wish I had gotten to know him better. Rest in peace, and my thoughts are with his family.

He and I always had a vague plan to share a few beers, if and when we ever got around to being in the same place at the same time. It's a shame we left it as "some day..." and it's now too late.

Rest in peace, hippie. <3

I'm sorry to learn of Randman's death. Did he used to have a Lennon avatar? If I remember him right, he was good at being pleasant and likable to all even when things got polarized or tense. RIP.

Don't forget to live before you die.

Sharon posted a status thing on facebook, for the benefit of Randy's daughter and other relatives, onto which Sharon's facebook-Winamp contacts have added their comments. They know there's an online community that cares.
