saturday night, webster's falls dozens of people were enjoying the longest day of the year at one of many waterfalls sprinkled across hamilton. the theme this night seemed to be "lend a hand", as hikers helped friends negotiate slippery rocks, so they could avoid falling into the falls.
Randy Steele September 13, 1961 - May 22, 2009. It's hard to capture a life in a few sentences, especially one that was lived as large as Randy's but here are a few highlights. In 1995 Randy started working at CH Television and went on to become one of the viewer's favourite reporters covering issues at Hamilton city hall and eventually producing his own segment "Steele's Town". In 2001 Randy was diagnosed with throat cancer. From 2003-2009 the cancer returned unrelentingly but with just as much force he fought back. In 2004, at the suggestion of a friend, Randy took up photography--it was the moment he went from being in front of a camera to being behind one. Randy took over 12,000 photos between 2004 and 2009. His love for his family, the cottage in Lurgan Beach, Kincardine, and the city of Hamilton are all captured with his passionate and artistic eye. Shannon, Carly, Keltie, Randi and I are very proud of Randy's photos and have chosen to share more of them with you. Enjoy!
