Wendy, Cooper, Tyya and Cohen, I want to thank you for sharing Randy with me and the members of the Palliser Toastmaster Club over many years. It didn't matter if you were a veteran of Toastmasters or brand new coming in the door, Randy was always welcoming, caring, and encouraging. He left an impression on me the very first day I went as a guest to Toastmasters and is one of the main reasons I came back time and time again. A big part of Toastmasters is providing feedback on speeches and Randy's care always shone through providing invaluable feedback. I miss his presence but, as we discussed at our last meeting, he instilled in us the importance to lead and encourage one another, and as we follow in his foot steps his presence and spirit live on.

Kindest regards,
Tim Gareau, President Palliser Toastmasters

I express my deepest condolences to Randy’s family and friends. I met Randy 4 years ago through Palliser Toastmasters and for those 4 years he became my informal mentor and an amazing example of a leader at that. In 2016, Randy became the President of Palliser Toastmasters and asked me to be VP Education, for that very productive year I learned an invaluable amount of knowledge from Randy. It was a kind of leadership which I will never forget. His leadership helped me improve my own leadership and communication skills dramatically and I became a President of Palliser Toastmasters in 2018 as a direct result of his leadership. He wanted to make our Club great and under his leadership we received President Distinguished Status for the first time in 15 years. He set the goal and he managed the team around him as an unbelievably talented leader. It was an amazing time and we celebrated our Club’s 40th year in a very enthusiastic atmosphere because of Randy. At this celebration, he gave a speech which I will never forget, he told us how he saved our Club ten years ago and his speech was about never stopping and giving up… just think and find the right people and go forward to accomplish your goals, even when you think it’s not realistic… we will never forget Randy and we will run our Palliser Toastmasters Club as the greatest Club as a tribute to Randy and all of his accomplishments.

I was very saddened to learn the tragic news of Randy's passing. I met Randy for the first time over 3 years ago at Palliser Toastmasters. Randy was kind, generous with his time and a mentor to many, including myself. My thoughts are with the family during these difficult times. May the memories of Randy help you find peace.
