    You were an amazing man and you’ll be greatly missed. I’m happy to have had you in my life for as many years as I did. You were like family and I’ll never forget all the fun times we all had. The boat rides, the Vegas trip, sarah and kyles wedding, and parties in your backyard. I’m grateful to have known you and I know you are pain free now which makes this much easier. You’ll forever be in all our hearts.

    My prayers and sympathy for the entire Ezell family. Randy is loved by many and will be missed. Always kind to me when I went to IL to visit. My last visit with Randy was in Ohio when he was in town for his nephews wedding. We had a wonderful visit with him, and he made us all laugh, and always a pleasure to spend time with. He always spoke of his daughters with pride of the strong independent women they have become. He truly enjoyed his time with his grand children, and always had videos and pictures to share. This is what I want to keep in my heart.
