It was indeed a sad, sad day when I read in The Malibu Times that our friend and business support person had met his demise in Guam. On behalf of the Malibu Chamber of Commerce, and friends of Rand Ihle (Randy is what we affectionately called him), we would like to send our condolences to his family and those close to him. He was an outstanding civil servant and a great human being. He was always the utmost in professionalism and was happy to be of help to any one who asked. Randy’s cheerfulness, humor and bright smile will be missed.
There is a saying: “Bloom where you are planted” and Randy certainly did that during his 18 years in Malibu. So to honor Randy, I am personally making a donation to the PCH Highway beautification project.
