Never was there a being made of the perfect mix 50 o/0 mom 50 o/0 dad. Aunty pay & uncle Jim. Randy was the most exceptional non judgemental intellectual person I've ever known. You 2 are the kind of parents Disney makes fictional movies about. You brought 4 beautiful children into the world and gave them storybook lives. Really you did. I was jealous!!! I have always thought all 4 were beautiful. But I do think Randy was exceptionally special. So blessed my parents met you and I had the opportunity to know you and Randy and now Margaret. MISS YOU ????

Dear Jim and Pat, We were very sorry to hear about Randy's passing. Unfortunately we could not attend the service, however, I will never forget the friendship and camaradie that we shared along with Butch, Kelly and Jody. You always made us feel welcome in your home. Please accept our deepest condolences.

Life of the party. That's how I'll remember you. Playing the Bitter Piece recordings I still have right now. So much energy. Although it has been awhile you are a strong part of my memories of my wasted but cherished youth. Thanks for the part you played, the lessons you taught me, the laughs we shared, the stories we told, music we loved. RIP my friend

Haven't seen you in along time, old chum, but that doesn't mean I don't care. You were one of the good ones, and you will be with fine company.

I knew Randy when he was growing up & he was always a happy & fun-loving kid. I saw him a few times when he became an adult & most recently at his parents' anniversary party where he was very friendly & appeared to be very happy. My heart goes out to Jim & Pat, Kelly & Jody. He is now reunited with his brother Butch & I truly believe they are in a better place & happier than before.

Moments in a life ..... At one time Randy and I displayed furniture on the auction block at Hovvman Galleries in a part of downtown Winnipeg which no longer exists. We were each others first roomate when we rented an apartment on Evanson street. I Knew Randy in Junior high but it wasn't until highschool that we started hanging out by way of the bond of Punk Rock. Those were exciting times heading down to ROW to buy records and look for posters of up coming shows. Going to the native club was very special place for Randy, we met some of our first adult friends there, bonds that lasted. I remember us only being able to look at the House of Beep from across the road because we were still outsiders but within a couple of years that all changed. With the explosion of underground Punk rock came the touring bands. These were good times for Randy and many of us and of course this was when Randy started to pursue his musical ambitions.I remember eating chicken 'ties' at his wonderful bobba's place on Polson, making hundreds of Perogies at a time on Gertrude street, a recipe and method of production I loosely still use today. Those young adult years were happy times for Randy, no doubt about it.Cheers old pal

People spend their whole lives looking for that one friend that helps us define who we really are... That friend that will compliment and not complicate our lives... That friend that will show unconditional love and never judge us for being human... That friend who always gives more than they're willing to receive... If we're lucky enough to come accross just one, we truely are blessed. Randy Horoshok had a profound effect on my life, as he had on so many others. Anybody who had ever met Randy, has never forgotten him. Even if it was only for 5 minutes, Randy left his mark and an impression that you would never forget. From his candid sense of humor, to his compassion and love for his family and friends, Randy is a friend that I will never forget... A friend who I keep deep in my heart... A friend who truly is a blessing!'We may have lost a loved one, but we have gained an angel'I love you my dear friend!!!Kelcey Beltowski (a blessed friend)
