Thoughts and Prayers go out to you and your family. Mike sounds like he was a remarkable man and was lucky to have you in his life. He will be missed by all who knew him. Cherish the memories as they will carry you through the difficult times. God Bless! RIP Mike
Growing up, I loved Mike (Josh). He was one of the coolest guys and I truly looked up to him. My family has many memories with the Randall family so I know how this loss impacts you all. You’re in my thoughts as you grieve. Mike sure will be missed!!
Nancy and family, I am so sorry for the loss of Josh. We just found out today. I played fast pitch against Josh many times. He had that crazy sling shot curve ball. Josh was always a stand-up guy. We would often see you and Josh out to breakfast weather in Barker, Gasport or Lockport. He was this first person to show up at my dad’s funeral. I appreciated that so much. I’ll truly miss him. May God bless you and guide you through this difficult time. Doug & Roxanne Fitch
Michael was and will forever be a strength of his family. He left that knowledge to them.
He loved them all so very much and took very good care of his friends, because that is what good Christians should do.
I feel privileged to have known Mike and Nancy and their family. God bless them all .
Nancy, Stephanie and Kristen you are in our thoughts and prayers.
I didn’t know him but as a Lockportian am grateful to him for serving our community nearly 3 decades as a firefighter. RIP neighbor.
Nancy and family,
Sending thoughts and prayers to all of you. We always enjoyed talking to Mike at the family reunions.
He was a great guy
