Wow just now im hearing of randys passing. My name is sue rowe, i worked at costco in Brentwood doing samples for 8 years. I never new he was so famous, he and his wife would come in and we always said hello how are you, we would be so casual, yet seemed like old friends. Wow, randy and is wife where so kind, so gental in there manner. So polite, and randy so shy, was refreshingly different. I moved to butler Indiana a few years ago, randy had wished me good luck and was glad to have known me. What a loving man. Bye randy again until we meet again in Gods glory. To his lovely wife and daughter, im so sad for you. But what a man of god your husband and daddy was. Sincerely susan rowe

Randy, I've always admired your style of picking, and you always presented yourself with class and dignity while remaining humble in spite of your success and carrying the Scruggs name. A lot of folks may not realize your enormous contribution to music and the awards that you've deservingly won. My heart breaks at this sorrowful time just as it did when your father passed away. Thank you and the Scruggs family for touching my life with your music. God bless Gary and the extended Scruggs family......you will never be forgotten Randy

My deepest condolences to the Scruggs family.
I will never forget the first time I heard Randy play a beautiful instrumental version of "Both Sides Now" on one of the Earl Scruggs Revue albums. As a fan I soaked up the many contributions he made to projects by other artists. His session playing as well as producing ( Will the Circle Be Unbroken 2 among many others)
He was amazing as he played on almost every song during the tribute to Johnny Cash. His iconic playing on Roseanne's hit record, "Tennessee Flat Top Box" comes to mind as well.
I only knew him through his musical contributions to the world but I have read many comments from those who had the privilege to know him personally and all express a good hearted man that will be deeply missed. Rest In Peace, Randy. Thank you for touching lives with your amazing talent.

Randy was a sweet soul and a fantastic musician. I had the privilege of playing piano in the Revue in the early seventies got to know him on the road when he was still in his teens. He was always kind, quick to laugh and filled with enthusiasm for music. He left us too soon. Many blessings to his family.

We are saddened that Randy is not with us anymore. Even though we know that this is temporary we still are heartbroken. We ask that our creator give all who loved Randy the comfort and strength needed to help them through this very hard time. We happily look forward to the time when we will be reunited with our loved ones again. May all of us draw close to God because he love us.

I am deeply saddened by the passing of one of the sweetest, most talented, grace filled, most family oriented, gentle souls I've ever met. I had the great honor of writing two songs with Randy. He was always a gentleman- and a soft spoken, quiet, lovely human being. My deepest condolences go out to Randy's family. God bless & rest his soul.

Grew up watching Beverly Hill Billies. Anytime I hear the name Scruggs, I think Earl and Rascal Flatts.

Ironically, my son and grands last names are Scruggs. Will always remember the Scruggs family.
