“After a heroic and extended battle with a disease that threatened to take his voice, but in fact helped him to amplify it, Randy is at this moment restored and at peace.”
– Michael J. Tomlinson, BDI CEO & President
Anyone who knew Randy was blessed by his passion to actively help others, his incredible generosity that flowed from his faith in Christ, and the remarkable authenticity with which he approached everything in his life – including his battle with cancer. A battle that he fought with grace and strength for several years before leaving us to be with Jesus on May 28.
BDI began with Randy’s vision to release generosity to help a hurting world – and that vision continues to this day. It’s a vision that Randy instilled in our hearts and will serve as our guide as our team carries on the work that Randy began at BDI nearly two decades ago.
“While my broken body keeps failing, my ministry is expanding… My faith goes deeper than any cancer diagnosis. It gives me hope when medical reports don’t. And frankly, even in perfect health, Jesus is my one true hope. We all need hope. Careers end, relationships fail, bank accounts dwindle and health falters. The only hope we have is the eternal God.”
– from In the Valley of the Shadow of Death: Honest Conversations from Life’s Final Journey (2020)
