    To Randys Cargill Family,
    My Father stated on more than one occasion the close connection that he had with many of you. He confided in me that he considered many of you to be his brother or sister, son or daughter. Although he probably couldn’t tell you directly , he loved you all.
    So, for everyone in Randys’ Cargill Family whose hearts were touched by my Father, I send my sympathies to you, as we suffer his loss together.
    Randys daughter, Tuesday

    As a friend, mentor, coworker, and customer for 25 years, Randy was toughest as a customer! Lessons learned: love and appreciate your family, laugh and live hard, tell a good story, and laugh again. Favorite memory: one year on the Cargill Sales Meeting Committee the marketing firm suggested a REALLY BIG NAME for the 1992 meeting. Their recommendation: Henny Youngman! Randy and I laughed until we cried. I will never forget Randy.

    I have lost a real friend in Randy. His eternal optimism always kept me going when I really didn’t want to. His sense of humor made all of us laugh. His compassion and his passion made all of us pony up when we might not have wanted to. I am truly heartbroken to be without him. I feel like I have been robbed of a real friend. To the family…I know you know you have been blessed by sharing your lives with Randy, but know this – that others that came in contact with him throughout his life feel the same way. I’m sure it is not the same as if we were family, but for me…I really felt that Randy was family. I’ll really miss him!

  34. Sand Cherryy

    To the Family of Randy, Randy was a man who treated me as if I were part of his Family. He was kind and thoughtful in all dealings with me and my Family. He was there for me in many good times and in the toughest times in my life. The Overbaugh family opened their doors and their hearts to me giving me a family and support when I felt completely alone. They helped me get my life back on track and provided love and shelter for me and my son,Daniel.Most of the good times in my early adolescence through my twenties involved the Overbaugh family. I was best friends with Tuesday their youngest family member and I cherish all the memories and kindnesse this family has shown me. Thank you Randy, for being the man you were and for providing the influences on my life that you gave…Thank you to Randy and to his Family for All. Love always Sandy Cherry (Underberg)
