At the age of 15 Randy started his life career as a faller in mostly the coastal forests of B.C. He considered his greatest accomplishment to be his work that effectively caused the rollback of the WCB rate for independent fallers. His retirement years were filled with his other loves, growing things and selling. Many hours were spent with his tomatoes in his green house or working in, admiring, or picking from his large blueberry patch. For years he was found selling prime produce at farmer’s markets in the surrounding area. The last few years have seen his yard full of logs being processed into firewood, loads of wood being hauled away and the sounds of power saw and splitter going early and late. Another logger gone, another saw lies silent.
