    Dear Mary and Family,
    I am saddened to hear of the sudden death of Randy. I got to know him through the Oblate process at Christ the King Monastery in Schuyler. I always enjoyed Randy’s input in our group discussions and the time we had together for one-on-one conversation. He will be missed! I shall offer my Mass here at my residence in Ames, Iowa tomorrow, Thursday, January 6 for Randy’s eternal rest. May God grant him the fullness of eternal light this Epiphany season proclaims and you and your family the comfort of his consolation. Fr. Jim

    Mrs Solberg, I see you’ve lost your husband. I’m thinking of you & your family. I was your 5th grade student at West Lawn in Grand Island. Take care.

    May you be comforted in this time of great loss. Randy was a joy to get to know through Christ the King Benedictine Oblates in Schuyler. He shared his insights and faith so generously and with great passion. He will be missed. May he rest in peace. His life was a blessing to many.

    To Randy/s family. I am so very sorry for your loss. Randy was one of a kind. I am an Oblate friend and have had many wonderful times with Randy over the years. I am thinking of our last in-depth conversation this past August. The photo of him that is shared here makes me remember it well We had attended a retreat and on Sunday after the retreat had ended, after lunch, Randy and I were the last two remaining at the lunch table. We got to discussing British history. Randy shared his knowledge, with was deeper than mine, but this had always been a fovorite topic of study for me so we were both very engaged. Then on a whim I asked “what do you think of the Royal Family. Immediately his face lit up, as in this picture here, and he exclaimed “they’re a hoot!” We went on to laugh and share our favorite stories about the Royals. I didn’t expect that. Randy you will be greatly miss. Rest in peace my Benedictine brother in Christ.

    I’m so sorry for your loss. I worked with Randy on lots of projects, but much more than that, I fondly remember just chatting with him in the hallways or at lunch. One of the nicest, most upbeat, and just generally friendly guys I’ve ever worked with. . . he really was a great guy.

    It seems Randy was consistent with everyone he met. He loved talking about anything. I sat next to him at work and we decided to get ourself a timer to limit our very important discussions. I think he brought in an hour glass, but I can’t remember exactly. I’m sure there was a story to it… Peace be with you.
