I just learned that Randie died in November 2011 from a long illness that was not explained to me.  I am ashamed to have lost track of Randie, who was a great friend at Kimball and during my Oak Cliff days.  I knew that he ran a night club on Greenville Ave. for years, but we had simply lost touch.

Here is a link to a "Memorial Page" that I discovered today:
