  • This is VERY sad news!!!! I’m proud to have met him. I hope his family and closed ones are doing fine even though this difficult moment. This is very sad.

    Regards to all of you guys, take care of yourselves.


  • This is truly a loss for our industry.

    Randy was an aggressive pioneer that fought to bring his customers the best value and selection of flowers possible at a great price. He lead Oberer’s into an expansion period that continues today crossing state lines the old fashioned way, hard work, style and excellent quality.

    Everyone that knows Randy will tell you that he was truly passionate about his business and was laser focused on where he knew he wanted to take his business. Their growth and longevity speaks for itself.

    I believe this is one of those losses that will leave a void in our industry that will impossible to replace.

    Rest in peace my friend, you will truly be missed.


    • I so agree with every word you wrote Rob. I do hope and think his managers will continue the legacy, they had a big part in the success of Oberers.

  • Words can’t describe the loss of this wonderful man. He was one of the most creative, artistic designers in the industry and an amazingly brilliant business man. I am shattered and will miss him more than ever.
