Randy Solem - Rotmk, Videogamedc 2012-03-19 11:07:58
Sorry guys, I'm not a member here, but I figured I'd just let everyone know. Randy Solem, my cousin and 'uncle', had passed away Friday night at 36 years young. He was the owner/creator of VideoGameDC and the Rise of the Mushroom Kingdom series. He always wanted to get back into the web/animation/game dev scene, but a lot of unexpected things had taken place in life for Randy. He leaves behind his girlfriend Danielle and their 18 month old daughter Rielle. If anybody is interested in any form of donations that go 100% to his daughter and daughter's mother, please inbox me. I know a lot of guys have had some harsh words for Randy because of his persona on his forum, but honestly it was all in good fun. I was there many of the times he'd break balls and act like a tough guy about posts, he was never serious. Randy was the biggest kid at heart and made everyone laugh everywhere. Everyone wanted him at their wedding or bachelor party.
Again, sorry for this being a first post, however he always used to brag about his newgrounds hosting and videos being played all the time on newgrounds and the community a few years ago. ROTMK and his fanbase meant everything to him, so I figured I'd just post this final update for Randy.
RIP Randy 'Rando Commando'
