Call in to speak with the host
Randy Leach could have been described as a "good old boy," but at a strapping six feet three inches and 220 pounds, the "boy" part of the description seemed more than a bit of a stretch. He always wanted to be liked by those around him, and his gentle manner and ever-present willingness to help others made that wish come true. He was always very close to his parents, especially his mother, and unlike many teenagers, he did things with his parents like going to the grocery store—ordinary things like that. He was described by one of his peers as someone who "...got along with everyone; was never in fights, and would help anyone who needed assistance—he was the type of guy you could always count on, a gentleman."
Randy got good grades in school, with little effort on his part. At the time of his "disappearance," he had a bright future, many friends, and loving parents. For a graduation present, his parents bought him the car of his dreams—a restored 1966, cherry-red Mustang. He had a fair amount of money in the bank that remains untouched to this day.
It's good to talk.
