Bring Randy home....RIP

Randy R. Estrella was born in Santa Clara, California on March 22, 1989. He moved to Mesquite, Texas the following year with his mother and brother Roman. He graduated from Mesquite High School with academic honors, he wasn't a bad athlete either, as well as an outstanding violinist. After graduating from high school he moved back to Santa Clara to live with his father. He earned his AA degree from De Anza College and his BA degree from the Univerity of Californa East bay. He was completing his studies for his MA degree from Boise State University. 

Randy had a zest for living life to it's fullest. He loved to travel, man did he love to travel. He was an avid golfer, enjoyed skiing, was at home in the backwoods, he was an amazing backpacker. He loved long distance swimming, and would out on an incline climber for hours. He loved spending time with friends, and doing voulunteer work arount the community. He had unlimited potential to make a difference, and a "What can I do for you attitude ". Things always felt better when he was around. His laughter, funny remarks, beautiful eyes, and a smile to big for his face. To know him was to love him.

It is through tear filled eyes, anger, and a broken heart that I send out this request for help. In the early morning hours of 9 December 2017 my son Randy passed away, the result of a hit in run traffic accident while out walking near his home in Mesquite, Tx.. I have started this fund to help us bring his remains back to his birth place so that he may be buried near his family and friends. Many of you have asked what can I do. Help bring Randy home...

My name is Ray Estrella, I am Randy's father. I am an emotional mess right now yet not to proud to ask for help. I love his so much....
