I never knew Randy's last name but when I was reading the obituary I realized that I went to school with his brothert at North Brandywine, Randy would of been a classmate of my brother. Randy many of a time came to my oldest son's birthday as a suprise visit from Santa and then came to my daughter and sons house the year of our housefire. Many times I would chat to him at Giant over the years. When I heard he was being Santa at theLog Cabin in Downingtown a group of my children and grandchildren went to see him there. He had a heart of gold, he was one of the best Santas . I am deeply sorry for your loss. My prayers go out to all his family. May God bring comfort, wrap His loving arms around you bringing memories that draw him close to you. When you see a good Santa , may it bring warmth to your hearts, for Randy touch so many young ones hearts as they shared their wish list.As well as he touched many of  the hearts young and old. Deepest sympathy and prayers.

Randy and I were good' friends in our Junior' years / North Brandywine,  we kept in touch in later High School/ taking different Academic directions, Randy and I , many times made phone calls to each other after school, just to catch up on 'school happenings of that day.  In later years , I remember catching up with Randy, at Giant , and his friendy smile would bring us back together , almost like we were never apart, through the years.  -   striking up conversation' and bringing out the best in everyone/ I think, was his biggest Gift''  I will Truly miss Randy,  he was the Friend, that everyone should have.    David B    class of '79
