RICHFORD: Randy D. Cummings, age 64, passed away unexpectedly on Friday, March 10, 2023, at the Northwestern Medical Center in St. Albans.
Randy was born in Hardwick on January 8, 1959, the son of the late Robert and Virginia (Ficara) Cummings.
Randy grew up in Alburgh and attended Alburgh Elementary School.

He enjoyed spending countless hours hunting and fishing, tinkering on lawnmowers, woodworking, and spending time with his grandchildren.
