We recall Randy announcing he was “going out for beer,” disappearing for days, and returning from Colorado with his Chevy dragging bottom, crammed with cases of Coors.Later, at the U. of Chicago, Randy literally stopped a bullet to protect two women from being assaulted. Shot in the back, he drove himself to the hospital. His 1981 car accident left Randy paralyzed and unable to speak, but with his intellect, sense of humor, and college memories largely intact. Undaunted, he communicated with eye signals, and greatly enjoyed hearing about friends, and especially about his own escapades.”
