A friend of RemTec was lost last week. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Hardman family.


FSSA regrets to inform you of the passing of Randall (Randy) Lee Hardman on June 18, 2012 after a long and courageous battle with Leukemia. He is survived by his loving wife, Eileen; his sons, Kyle and Clark and his wife, Valerie; his daughter Kelli, her husband, Paul, and their son and Randy's only grandson, Cameron. He also leaves behind his mother, Judy; his siblings, Robert, Rhonda, Roxanne and Ric and their spouses and children. Randy was preceded in death by his father, Leonard Verl.

Randall, known to his family and friends as Randy, was born in Whittier, CA, September 6, 1955, to Leonard Verl and Judith Lee Hardman. He was the eldest son of five children and grew up with a love for wrestling and scouting. He loved watching his children play sports and could always be found sitting in the bleachers or volunteering at their numerous games and activities. He was an avid golfer, fanatic football fan and NASCAR enthusiast. He loved music and enjoyed staying up to speed with the latest in technology and electronics. Randy made friends easily and valued his relationships.

Randy enjoyed a career in the fire protection industry that spanned 36 years. In 1979, Randy joined California Suppression Systems where he worked first as a sales person and then as Vice President of Sales and Marketing. He became a vital part of the ORR Protection Systems leadership team and was promoted to Vice President, Western Region in 2011.

Throughout his battle with cancer, he was always so hopeful. At a time he could have been down, he uplifted those around him; that was Randy. His courage and positive outlook reminded his loved ones and those lucky enough to know him about the preciousness of life. He was, and is, an inspiration. The family sends a special thanks to the City of Hope.

A memorial service is planned for Wednesday, June 27, at 10:00am in the Chapel at the Pacific View Memorial Park in Corona Del Mar. A reception will follow in the Pool Upper Terrace at the Island Hotel in Newport Beach.
