    Hi Guys

    Randy, a long time member of the HT community, reviewer for Ultimate AV, former reviewer for The Perfect Vision, and partner in LionAV, past away on Saturday June 16 2007. He died while flying a small plane with a friend near Oakland California. Randy and his friend were both retired Air Force pilots with tons of flight experience. I remember one conversation I had with Randy where he said he had more than 2000 flight hours while in the Air Force.

    Randy had a heart of gold and would gladly give you the shirt off of his back. He will be greatly missed.

    This has hit me hard as well. I will miss him.

    One of the most real people that you are likely to meet. He continued to have a passion for flying even after his Air Force days ...

    My heart goes out to those nearest to him.

    Regards

    Michael

    Wow, I'm in shock. I never met Randy, but exchanged some email with him on TV advice over the past couple of weeks and was hoping to get on his schedule. Rest in peace Randy and my condolences to his family.

    As both one of Gregg Loewen's long-time customers and as the son of my father who is also retired from the Air Force, I wish to send my sympathies to Randy's immediate family as well as to his extended family of those he touched along the journey of his life.

    Greetings

    In a celebration of his life, he got to do the stuff that he loved and he got paid for it. How can you beat that?

    A life well lived ... cut short ... but he made the most of it. Randy need not worry that he won't be remembered. He has touched so many of us ... and he will live on through us.

    Regards
