  1. Coach Randy gave so much of himself to the MYBA Astros baseball team, from coach-pitch through kid-pitch he kept the Astros family together and devoted himself to making the boys better players and better young men. We treasure those years with Randy and the McCaslin-Schlieker family. RIP Randy.

  2. With heart felt sympathy for Randy’s family, we pray for the comfort that comes from the Holy Spirit, who groans for us. Love, Kent and Marilyn.

  3. Randy was a special student to me at Temple High School. He was also an officer for the National Honor Society which I sponsored. He was one of our leaders for a year of special activities. He also created a computer scoreboard for a school competition. He was so special, polite and intelligent. The world was a better place because of him. God bless the Schlieker family. My heart grieves for his loss but celebrates his life.

  4. Praying for peace for all of you. Randy was a close friend in junior high and high school. So sorry to hear about his passing.
