Very true Gerry. I sat next to him numerous times throughout Oakmont just due to our last names. He was a very good trombone player and a very nice person.

My heart dropped upon reading the news. I hadn't seen Randy for a long, long time but remember him as a gentle and talented person. How this world needs his kind of gentleness.
I remeber him from six years of band, HJHS & HHS. A truly nice guy. Sad that it took seven years for us to find out about it.
So very sorry to hear of his passing so long ago . He was a class guy . Always nice to all 🙏🙏
Randy and I were friends at Oakmont School -- 1st grade through 4th grade -- and we often traded baseball cards at his home near the American Legion. Although we didn't remain close after I moved on to Brookline School, I remember him as a fast quarter-miler in junior high and, possibly, high school and an excellent student.
Randy and I were good friends at Oakmont and in Junior High, especially in the band. He was an excellent trombonist. He dropped out of music in high school for some reason and we lost touch after that. I've often wondered what happened to him. Very sorry to see this, Randy was a really good guy.
I remember Randy from track senior year. We had two excellent quartermilers -- Kingman Davis (who came in third or so in the state meet) and his brother Bruce. And Randy a half notch down. But there was a rule that you needed to have four, so Mr. Jackson drafted me (long story) and then decided that I would run first so that Randy and Bruce and Kingman would know how much time they needed to make up. I remember Randy as a very nice guy...quiet

I am in shock about Randy's passing. My family and the Clouser Family did a lot of things together and we had family dinners about once a month. I LOVED hearing all of the musically talented brothers playing their brass instruments. I could listen to them all night!! When both families went up to their home in the Poconos, we had some great ice hockey games on the lake. Needless to say, I didn't last long on the ice (I was a figure skater, not an ice hockey player). LOL!! My older sister & I decided it was better for us not to play with the guys or we might end up with broken bones!! When Randy's mother passed on, I got a very long letter from his dad, but we drifted apart for I was struggling in The Netherlands raising 6 daughters (glad I didn't have boys like Mrs. Clouser did with extra dirty laundry) and having to deal with very small appliances compared to our US sizes. I don't know how Randy's mother handled all those guys in the household!! And I cannot imagine everyone practicing their instruments, probably at the same time! My dog used to howl in the livingroom when my brother practiced his trombone in the basement & I played my violin in my bedroom. Like everyone said, Randy was quiet & sweet. A real gentleman.
Randy was a member of our Mile Relay team and a tireless worker. His older brother was reluctant to mention anything about his younger brother when I contacted him on the "63HHS website. I thought he went to Ursinus after graduation but when I contacted the school they would not release any information since I wasn't a student. Wish I knew more about his life after Haverford. So much for having a mile relay reunion. Missing teamates are especially difficult to deal with for my last memories are when they were young and in their prime. Nothing beats laughing and running together. Randy, I never really knew you. My loss.
