Dear Terri and other family members,
We are so sad for your loss.  Randy was one-of-a-kind, as you know so well.  He was such a unique and smart and genuine guy.  It was great to share many years of friendship when he was a student and faculty member at USU.  He loved to come in very early as a professor and he liked to kid and needle students who had a hard time getting up in the morning.  But he sure helped them learn a lot.  We remember when he found you, Terri, and you were so good for him.  Looking through the photos it is clear that you shared many wonderful times.  He loved that you fished and rode together.  We wish you all the best and look forward to seeing you again....

Randy and I spent many years as colleagues at USU.  Although we were housed in different departments and didn't cross paths as often as I would have liked, he came to be a valued colleague as well as a friend.  We shared many of the same interests and passions -- working with and mentoring graduate students, riding our Harleys, the canine members of our families, and a commitment to collegiality and honesty in our faculty roles.  When I last saw him we talked  about planning to spend time together taking a few post-retirement motorcycle rides... I'll always regret that we lost the opportunity to make that happen.  My condolences to Terri and all of Randy's family.  He was truly one of the "good guys" I've had the pleasure of knowing over the years, and he'll be deeply missed.

Dear Teri and Jones family,
I have known Randy for 27 years, as he was my Undergraduate Advisor when I was earning my degree in FHD (that's what it was known as at that time). Randy not only was an amazing advisor, he was one of my favorite professors, and upon graduation, he became a trusted friend and overall life advocate. I came back to visit Randy regularly, while my kids were in the Child Development Lab, and then later when I got a job on campus. Randy is one of the people I think of when I evaluate my time at USU. His smile, laugh, heart, and casual style always made me feel at home. I treasured our talks, I appreciated his wisdom and sense of humor, and forever will spend my life trying to emulate his mastery of chill. 

I want you to know how much I loved him and feel a sense of loss knowing that he isn't on this planet... and given my sense of loss, I can only imagine how much you must feel. I know he cherished you, he spoke of you all the time, and his eyes lit up and I could feel his love for you in all our talks.

I am holding you in love, Teri. And I am so thankful I have the memories I do of my friend Randy. 
All my love,
Monica Kitchens Schruhl - FHD - 1995

I am so sorry that we are now without Randy's boundless, joyful energy. My sincere condolences to Terri and the rest of your family. Randy was always an encouraging voice to my wife as she struggled as an adult student working at USU FHD. I am sorry we never got to ride together. Much Love. - Randy Lee

I was sad to hear from another former student about Randy's passing. He was my first professor at USU since I took one of his classes as a prerequisite for graduate school. He taught me much about research methods and about navigating graduate school and I appreciate the wisdom that he shared with us. He was a great mentor, teacher, and friend.
