 Randy Padmore


A man of vision.  A man of infinite abundance for life. Randy's passion for youth was felt throughout the city by all who met him.  His work at Atkinson Housing Co-op and the Alexander Park Community over these past 15 months re-shaped a community the way that only Randy could.


His commitment to excellence in all that we do was exhibited on a daily basis by his every action. Randy's work with the Atkinson Outreach Team touched many people in the community.
