      A very special brother who will be missed tremendously. He was kind, thoughtful, and generous. He loved his family very much. Our sympathies to you, Kathy, who he loved and who took very good care of him during his last few months of life, Sara who he love, was proud of and adored and Craig the son-in-law he welcomed with open arms to the family.

    My condolences to Randy’s family… There are not enough kind words to speak on your behalf Randy. You were the single most positive human being I have ever met. You had a laugh that was contagious; making everyone want to laugh with you. You were a terrific mentor. I would not have achieved the professional success I have obtained today without you there as a guide. You will be missed.

    Dear Kathy, Sara and Family,
    I worked with Randy at HSE for a time several years back and even followed him to Terracon for a short time. I just wanted to send my Condolences and let you know that you are in my thoughts and prayers during this most difficult time. I must say that I never in my life met a kinder and caring person. I am so sorry that I am unable to attend the Vigil Service or The Mass of Christian Burial as I am leaving the USA tomorrow to travel to Tel Aviv, Israel for work.

    May God Bless and watch over all of you,

    Gary O’Neal

    Those of us that lived with him during his college years in Madison, Wisconsin, knew him as “Lank”. Someone once described him as a “lanky dude”. Lank was an enigma, a living breathing character out of a Norman Rockwell painting. He seemed to come from a different era and possessed all that could be good in people and distributed it freely. There was no rush to anything with Lank, especially when it came time to push away from the dinner table. His plate was always the final repository for that “one last scoop of mashed potatoes” or the “just a dab of roast beef” that wasn’t worth putting in the fridge, or the corn, or carrots, or . . . well you see the kitchen didn’t have a garbage disposal. Stories will be relived time and again. There are a million smiles that miss him well into this gentle night. May that thought comfort those that love him.

    I’ve known Randy for many, many years. We worked together as officers of a couple of professional organizations (AIHA & ASSE). We would see each other every few months or so at a meeting – even through all of his chemo and medical treatments, he always had a smile. I will miss my friend; and I am so sorry for your loss, Kathy & Sara. Unfortunately, I am out of town and will not be able to attend the wake and/or funeral – I wish I could be there. I have done what you asked and made a donation to the ASSE Foundation; Randy would have liked that. May God’s Grace be with you during this difficult time.

    I am deeply saddened by the news of Randy’s passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. He was such a great person and will be missed.

    I had the pleasure of working with Randy as a consultant for many years. He was one of the kindest people I have ever worked with. He immediately responded whenever we reached out for assistance, I found comfort in knowing Randy had our back when we faced challenges. While we knew he was battling cancer, he remained upbeat and positive. I am deeply saddened by his passing and extend my heartfelt condolences to his family, co-workers and friends. Thank you for sharing Randy with the rest of us.

    I wish to extend my heartfelt sympathies to you, the family of Randy Milbrath. Randy and I had a professional relationship well in excess of 20 years dating back to the time of HSE. Randy was one of the finest consultants that I have had the privilege to work with and the pleasure to know. He was a compassionate human being with inordinate common sense, thoroughness in details and had a positive outlook on life that was always refreshing and uplifting. I think that you, his family, had a great deal of influence on how Randy conducted himself and likewise, he had a positive influence on you. You can draw on Randy’s strengths to ease the pain of his passing. We are all blessed to have known Randy and will have good memories to carry with us.

    This is a sad day and I want to express my sympathy to Kathy, Sara, and Craig. There are moments in life when I will miss you Randy, I just want to pick you up in my mind and hug you. Everyday, I fight the urge to text you or call you telling myself that if you wanted to talk to me you would. Its hard to forget someone who gave you so much to remember. You will be missed each and everyday for you were someone special who meant more than words can say.

  • marc and Marita Liebesman Posted November 28, 2017 12:12 am

    So very sorry to learn of this sad day. We have only fond memories of Randy and of our times together with Sara and our families. Prayers and sincerest sympathies
