Randy Renfrow, RIP

It is with great sadness that I report that racer Randy Renfrow was taken off life-support a few minutes ago and died shortly there after.

Renfrow was a multi-time AMA champion, a great supporter of racing and a valued member of the racing family. Renfrow was perhaps the most respected man in the AMA Superbike paddock. To say that he will be greatly missed by everyone who knew him is the understatement of all time.

Shawn Renfrow, younger brother of Randy, thanked the racing community for their support of Randy, the family and everyone involoved in this tragic situation. Funeral arrangements are pending.

Randy died in 2002 after a fall at his house. This article was sort of a "six years ago today", thing by Dean Adams. Randy was a great racer and a very nice guy. I met him several times and he was one of the most human people you'd ever want to meet. He didn't know me from Adam, but talked to me like I was a long-time friend everytime I saw him. Randy was also wickedly fast on any bike, 125, 250, 600 or Superbike. Randy was a small guy, jocky size; I still remember Daytona in 1990 when he joked with me that he needed to build a step ladder to get on the Commonwealth RC30, and that falling from any bike was a longer distance for him than most other racers.

I thought he was gone already but thought maybe I was mistaken.

Great story Linz (Racer997). Thanks.
