Colby Mongold shared condulences on the death of Randy Car. He stated that:
Today has been bittersweet as I had a good day yesterday with spending time and going out to dinner with mom as it was her birthday too but then to find out this evening my friend Randy Carr passed away today. Randy was one of a kind and we’d been friends since his days at Cellular one when he’d sold me my first cellphone (one of those big bag phones) and also taken great care of the fire department and any member who needed a phone. He lived life to the fullest and he’d always call me every year to wish me a Happy Birthday. I last spoke to him at 8:37 last night thanking him for calling and leaving a message wishing me a Happy Birthday. I’ll keep and play that message every year in his honor. Rest in peace buddy and show them how to have a good time up there !!!
