Randy Steele was robbed by fate. Cancer stole him from his family, his friends and his city. While he was alive he spent every moment living. Randy endlessly improved himself and the world surrounding him. When Randy was well he was a famous news reporter revered by all for his down to earth style and investigative reporting. The cancer attacked his lovely voice, his charming looks but not the essence that was Randy. When Randy became too ill to work as a reporter, he turned to his camera and became a recorder. He continued to do what he had always done, capturing Hamilton in a down to earth and investigative way. Every one of his 12000 images gives us a fresh look on our city and world. When Randy walked our world he showed it to us through live hits on the TV. So it is not surprising that after his death his timeless pictures are still giving us fresh insight into our city and ourselves.
